Robert Thorn:
Get on with it. Say what you have to say.

Father Brennan:
"When the Jews return to Zion, and a comet rips the sky, and the Holy Roman Empire rises, then you and I must die. From the Eternal Sea, He rises, creating armies on either shore, turning man against his brother, till man exists, no more." The Book of Revelation predicted it all.

Robert Thorn:
I'm not here to listen to a sermon.

Father Brennan:
It is by means of a human personality entirely in his possession that Satan will wage his last formidable offence.

Robert Thorn:
You said that my wife was--

Father Brennan:
Go to the city of Megiddo... in the old city of Jezreel. There see the old man Bugenhagen. He alone can describe how the child must die.

Robert Thorn:
Look here--

Father Brennan:
He who will not be saved by the lamb will be torn by the beast!

Robert Thorn:
Will you stop? I'm here because you said my wife is in danger.

Father Brennan:
She is pregnant.

Robert Thorn:
You're mistaken. That's nonsense.

Father Brennan:
He'll not allow the child to be born. He will kill it while it slumbers in the womb.

Robert Thorn:
What in God's name are you talking about?

Father Brennan:
Your son, Mr. Thorn. The Son of the Devil. He will kill the unborn child. Then he will kill your wife. And then, when he is certain to inherit all that is yours, then, Mr. Thorn... he will kill you.

Robert Thorn:
That's enough.

Father Brennan:
And with your wealth and power he will establish his counterfeit kingdom here on Earth, receiving his power directly from Satan!

Robert Thorn:
You're insane.

Father Brennan:
He must die Mr. Thorn!

Robert Thorn:
You asked for five minutes... and you've got five minutes.

Father Brennan:
Go to the city of Megiddo. See Bugenhagen before it's too late.

Robert Thorn. Now I've heard you. I want you to hear me. I never want to see you again.

Father Brennan:
You'll see me in Hell, Mr. Thorn. There we will share out our sentence.

Robert Thorn:
Father Brennan. Robert Thorn. What can I do for you?

Father Brennan:
We haven't much time, Mr. Thorn.

Robert Thorn:
Time for what?

Father Brennan:
We must accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour. Accept him now. Ask for his forgiveness. Take Holy Communion, Mr. Thorn. Drink of his blood, eat of his flesh. For only when he is within you can you defeat the Devil's Son.

Robert Thorn:
I'm sorry, Father. I--

Father Brennan:
Accept responsibility, Mr. Thorn. You did it. You let them do it.

Robert Thorn:
I think there's been some mistake, Father. If you'll excuse me...

Father Brennan:
He's killed before. He'll kill again. He'll kill until everything that's yours is his.

Robert Thorn:
Forgive me, Father, but I really should get back to work. Sorry. [Walks away]

Father Brennan:
I was at the hospital, Mr. Thorn. [Robert stops.] The night your son was born. [Robert walks back] I... participated. I witnessed the birth. I beg of you, please, Mr. Thorn.

Robert Thorn:
What do you want?

Father Brennan:
I want to save you, Mr. Thorn. So Christ will save me and rescue me from Eternal Damnation.

Robert Thorn:
What do you know about my son?

Father Brennan:
Everything. I saw its mother.

Robert Thorn:
You saw my wife.

Father Brennan:
No. I saw its mother.

Robert Thorn:
You're referring to my wife.

Father Brennan:
Its mother, Mr. Thorn. Its mother.

Robert Thorn:
Okay, that's enough. [to security guard] Sergeant!

Father Brennan:
Its mother is a jackal!

Security Guard:
Everything all right, Mr. Ambassador?

Robert Thorn:
[beat] Yes, Travis. Please escort this man out of the building.

Father Brennan:
[the guard leads him to the door] We must accept the Lord Jesus each and every day, Mr. Thorn! Drink his blood! It is the only way, Mr. Thorn.

Robert Thorn:
You've got five minutes. Now tell me why I'm here.

Father Brennan:
"When the Jews return to Zion, When a comet rips the sky, When the Holy Roman Empire rises, Then you and I must die. From the Eternal Sea, He rises, creating armies on either shore, turning man against his brother, till man exists no more."

Robert Thorn:
You said my wife is in danger.

Father Brennan:
Go to the town of Megiddo, in the walled city of Dezrahel, there lives an old man named Bugenhagen. He alone can describe how the child must die.

Robert Thorn:
What child? What are you talking about?

Father Brennan:
Your son, Mr. Thorn. The Son of the Devil.

Robert Thorn:
I came here because you said my wife was in danger.

Father Brennan:
She's pregnant.

Robert Thorn:
That's impossible.

Father Brennan:
That's what they told you, Mr. Thorn. He'll not allow the child to be born. He'll kill it while it slumbers in the womb. He'll kill the unborn child, and then he'll kill your wife. And then, when he is certain to inherit all that you have, then, Mr. Thorn, then... he'll kill you.

Robert Thorn:
That's enough.

Father Brennan:
He has to die, Mr. Thorn. You must act now or all will be lost. Go to the town of Megiddo. See Bugenhagen before it's too late.

Robert Thorn:
Now you listen to me. I don't know who you are or what you want but you stay away from my family. Do you understand? I don't want to see or hear from you ever again. [Leaves]

Father Brennan:
You'll see me in hell, Mr. Thorn. We'll spend eternity together.

Bugenhagen:
That little priest Brennan... is he dead yet?

Robert Thorn:
Yes.

Bugenhagen:
We have work to do. Come.

[Bugenhagen opens a cloth revealing seven daggers]

Bugenhagen:
It must done on Hallowed Ground, in the grounds of a church. The blood must be spilt on the Altar of God. [takes one] Each knife must be buried up to the hilt and then set so as to form the sign of a cross. [hands it to Robert] The first knife is the most important, for it extinguishes physical life and sets the centre of a cross. The subsequent knives extinguish spiritual life and radiate outwards.

Robert Thorn:
This is a child we're talking about. A small boy who I've raised as my own son.

Bugenhagen:
He's not your son! He's a beast! A beast! He's evil incarnate! Now don't you forget that!

Robert Thorn:
What if you're wrong? What if he isn't?

Bugenhagen:
I'm not wrong!

Robert Thorn:
How do I know that?

Bugenhagen:
Look. He... bears a birthmark. A sequence of sixes. So says the Bible, as do all the apostles of Satan.

Robert Thorn:
No. He doesn't have it.

Bugenhagen:
He must have it!

Robert Thorn:
I've bathed him. I've gone over every inch of his body. He doesn't have it.

Bugenhagen:
If the sign isn't visible, then it must be hidden, beneath the hair. Remove that, you'll find the number.

Keith Jennings:
What about the woman, the nanny?

Bugenhagen:
Oh, she's an apostate of Hell. She'll die before permitting this.

Robert Thorn:
[pause] No. No. [sets the knife down] It's insane. All of you- oh, my God! [runs out]

Bugenhagen:
Look, don't lose your nerve now, man! We'll all be in the cesspool if you do!

[Jennings takes the daggers and runs out]
