"The Cl*ser" (2008)*
INT -FEDERAL BUILDING - DAY
A XXX Agent has a MAN in a sanitation WORKER jumpsuit
tied to a chair in the sub-basement of the building
The XXX agent strikes the worker 3 or four times.
The CL*SER ,a pretty woman in her early 30's(hmmm)is watching the assault, she KNOCKS loudly
on the small window in the door, which CLOS*ER
watches through. the CLO*ER
makes a grimacing face , the KNOCKING has gotten the XXX AGENT's attention
The XXX AGENT opens the door on the CLOSER.She crosses the room past the SUSPECT/WORKER still tied to the chair,his mouth is bleeding
Who's THIS BITCH...What? you want some kind of audience? Well so do I. Listen lady, this man has kept me here against my will for over 5 hours now.
(smiling, as if making a pass)
I think our friend here just wants to know where his wife is
I don't know where this guy's wife is...I don't know his wife..
Oh yes you do honey(she says showing the man a phone with a video of him(the WORKER in the chair taking the XXX agent's presumed wife into a van with half hidden plates)
The XXX agent kicks a chair , we notice for the first time the room is large and see on tables that everywhere all manner of lie detector machines,EGG machines,fMRI scanning devises
Seems to have the entire library of Advanced Technologies down here..I forgot you knew how to work this stuff?
Advanced Technologies ? Are you kidding me? What we have here...(The AGENT says, indicating the equipment on the tables )is the equivalent of a stethoscope and a damn "See"-Meter! The three letter agency "the ABOVE that dare not speak it's name"-have the REAL advanced technologies not this ...this ...this (kicking over a lie detector machine) two tin cans tied together with string !
The WORKER/SUSPECT meanwhile is playing with a loose tooth. The XXX Agent pulls THE CLO*ER aside
That three letter agency nobody dares speak about has machinery that could MAKE this guy
"talk" in 2 minutes.
What do they have...the rack,the iron maiden?
(not in the mood for The Clo*ser's joking)
No,they have very small bio sensors you can just inject into someone's arm...(quietly,only to the CLO*ER)
then the sensors travel up into the guy's brain and in less than a half an hour all the thoughts in his head could be transcribed like teletext right onto a computer screen..ALSO we could see
images...sights the guy SEES in his brain...sights of where my wife is...
The CLOSER backs away from the AGENT a little
Now..THAT's Creepy..( walking to a table with a cooler on it ,she reaches for can of soda)
Do you mind?
Toss me one will ya? (she tosses him a soda,the AGENT turns to the WORKER/SUSPECT) Hey,you thirsty..?
Yes ,yes please..
The AGENT goes over to the tied up man, opens the soda and spills the drink down the guys's pants.The WORKER begins kicking and yelling.The AGENT and THE CLO*ER go outside
INT HALL-FED BUILDING
Well,did you ask if you could borrow this equipment from the XXX?
Well,of course I did..and do you know what they told me? They told me.ME.That there's no such thing..
(looking at clock,than yelling)
I helped them make the damn -no such thing !
Mary Kimble had written for television for decades
but soon found herselfessentially jobless
Mary Kimble's teleplay for the filmed but vaulted episode of"The Clo*ser"was written out of the season supposedly because of a reference to a "See Meter"that a producer, a practicing Neuronaut had "caught" in post production, Although the words "See Meter" were edited out of the episode the producer suggested that the teleplay writer might have purposely placed other less easy to recognize veiled denunciations at/or. or to the "organization' known to use so called "mind mapping technology" And because of the possibility that Kimble "was up to something" a meeting was held with programming and a decision was made to simply "scrape the episode" from broadcast.And next scrape Mary Kinble
Some in the cast and crew found it ironic that an intentional or unintentional "jab" or "reference" at
"The Movement/Church" was cause "for alarm, in the 1970's it was Neuronautics that was indicted for placing Associations based Referentials in Parsasol Productions made for TV Movie ,"Safety In Umbers".Mary Kimble did not think the shelving of the episode had anything whatsoever to do with a reference to a so called "See Meter"but to a "movement " of some OTHER kind
