Dr. LOBOTOMY HALL . but it would later come to be known as lobotomy.CONTINUOUS 1E This CLINICAL LECTURE HALL with AUDITORIUM-STYLE SEATING looks like that one that might be used by a professor to demonstrate a new procedure to a class of medical students. He called it leukotomy. and if we do catch glimpses of them. at the University of Lisbon. Antonio Moniz found that cutting the nerves which run from the frontal cortex to the thalamus in psychotic patients who suffered from repetitive thoughts “short-circuited” the problem. FEMALE VOICE Psychosurgery is a surgical intervention to remove. he devised a technique involving drilling two small holes on either side of the forehead. destroy or stimulate brain tissue with the intent of modifying disturbances of behavior.2. it is only the BACK OF THEIR HEADS or brief shots OVER THEIR SHOULDERS. and severing the prefrontal cortex from the rest of the brain. MALE VOICE #2 How did the procedure originate? FEMALE VOICE In 1936. (Though at this point we don’t see who is sitting in those seats.
CONTINUED: On the stage area, in the middle of a FULLY-FUNCTIONING OPERATING ROOM SET-UP, is the person we know as TAYLOR STARK, 30ish, a brilliant, beautiful and no-nonsense woman in bookish glasses and physician's scrubs. She is mid-lecture:
TAYLOR Between 1939 and 1951, over 18,000 lobotomies were performed in the United States. Not only on mental patients, but also on convicts and even on “difficult” children. She addresses the group of UNSEEN/UNIDENTIFIABLE OBSERVERS in the seats, presumably pupils, who throw out questions: UNSEEN OBSERVER (O.S.) Dr. Stark, didn't the lobotomy fall out of favor in the 1970's? TAYLOR It was not the procedure itself, but it’s over-application that created a backlash among the lay population. So, while the lobotomy was for decades disfavored, it has now experienced a resurgence as a procedure of last resort with the most violent of the criminally insane. This statement elicits MURMURS OF APPROVAL from the offscreen assemblage. TAYLOR (CONT’D) Today I will be performing what is known as a transorbital leukotomy, aka the “Ice Pick Lobotomy”. It is now that we see the CRAZED-LOOKING MALE PATIENT, 30, who lies on the gurney, prepped for surgery. Wild-eyed, he struggles to get up, but is unable to move due to HEAVY LEATHER RESTRAINTS on his arms, legs and head, which keep him locked down. And we're glad. He looks like he would rip Taylor limb-from-limb if he could only break his bonds.
CONTINUED: She holds up an ICE PICK-LIKE SURGICAL INSTRUMENT (STYLUS) and MALLET.
TAYLOR (CONT’D) With only local anesthetic to retain full brain alertness, I will insert the sharpened stylus above each eye of the patient and drive it through the thin skull bone with a light tap of the mallet. I will then swish the sharp pick back and forth like a windshield wiper inside the cerebral cortex, scooping out the offending area and, voilà-- a formerly dangerous, homicidal patient is now rendered passive and harmless. With this, the Crazed Patient, now snarling violently and foaming at the mouth, struggles more, trying with all his might to get at Taylor, who remains cool, unaffected. Taylor removes a MEDICAL SCHOOL CLASS RING and sets it on a nearby table as she puts on STERILE GLOVES and pulls up her SURGICAL MASK. She picks up the sharpened stylus and mallet, moving it toward the patient. As we CLOSE IN on the SHINY CLASS RING, there is a DISTURBING CLANK OFF-SCREEN as the MALLET HITS THE HANDLE OF THE STYLUS, presumably PENETRATING THE PATIENT’S SKULL. Another CLANK. And ANOTHER that becomes the opening beat of INDUSTRIAL MUSIC a la Trent Reznor, which CONTINUES TO PLAY as we CUT TO: INT. CAR - DARK, RAINY NIGHT STILL ON the SHINY RING, but now it is back ON A HAND which holds a steering wheel in the shadowy dark car. PULL BACK to reveal (via SUBJECTIVE CAMERA POV) that we are looking through the WINDSHIELD OF THE CAR, whose wipers struggle to clear away DRIVING RAIN. Ahead, barely visible, is an AMBULANCE (modified with barred-windows for transporting dangerous patients), red lights spinning.

CUT TO: INT. ASYLUM - SAME DR. MICHAEL KINGMAN, 55, a gruff, slightly unkempt Englishman who nonetheless has an authoritarian air about him, lectures to a small group of NURSES and ORDERLIES as he holds a file. DR. KINGMAN A patient with a soul warped so beyond recognition that even Satan himself would most likely reject it. The Nurses and Orderlies take this in. DR. KINGMAN (CONT’D) (then, off chart) Accompanying 54-46 from the University hospital is a Dr. Taylor Stark, to whom you will extend the utmost professional courtesy.

Unlike the Ivory Tower to which you are so accustomed. Granted.
