"It's To Kill a Mockingbird. It's a classic," she says. He insists he doesn't want to watch a movie with her, even though that'd TOTALLY be the perfect time to make a move on her. She says she'll turn the sound down, and he walks up to the glass. She says she wanted to apologize for him being brought here, for what's been done to him and his friends. She sounds sincere. "You have to know, we were desperate. It was all so we could save his life." Meanwhile, she's pushed play on the VCR, and Gregory Peck is looking really hot, and he's holding a cue card and looking directly at the camera. And the card says, "Ignore everything I'm saying." And I have to say I don't remember this part from the book, but I never did see the movie. Although, come to think of it, I don't remember Gregory Peck being blond. Come to that, I'm pretty sure To Kill a Mockingbird is in black & white. Or wait! That's Juliet! And she's seen Dylan perform "Subterranean Homesick Blues," or Love, Actually or some INXS video or something, depending on your frame of reference. Juliet continues. "Ben. He's a great man." Card reads: "Ben is a liar." Juliet: "I know you find that hard to believe, but he is." Jack glances up at the security camera behind Juliet's back. Card reads: "And he is very dangerous." At this point, Jack wheels in a television of his own and plays a video in which he holds up a cue card that reads, "Tell me something I don't know." Juliet says, "You probably feel like you don't have a choice. But you do, Jack. Free will is all we've really got, right?" Cards read: "Some of us want a change. But it has to look like an accident." Juliet: "Anyway, just wanted to put in my two cents." Cards: "It has to look like we tried to save him. And that's up to you, Jack." Juliet: "I told you before you can trust me. I want you to trust me now, when I tell you that doing the surgery is absolutely the right thing for you to do." Video Juliet is holding a card that says, "It's a complicated surgery. No one would ever know." For some reason, this cracked me up. She's really selling it on those cards! Juliet says, "It's the right thing, because he deserves to live." Card: "And I would protect you." The next card reads, "Now tell me to turn the movie off." Jack obliges, and even sounds annoyed. ["A hell of a stretch for our boy, there." -- Joe R] Juliet pretends to protest, and isn't there one more card? "Do you like me? Check one: Yes __ No __" She shuts off the video and walks to the door. "Think about what I said. Please," she says, and walks out.
