Thanks to R. Joy
Helvie & TVNewsCam for information taken from the
just titled "Revenge", everyone should recognize this script as being the third
in the Evil Leaper trilogy, "Revenge of the Evil Leaper".
Al feeds the data into the handlink, then reads it back.
Angela Jenson. Nicknamed Angel.
Age nineteen. Arrested for
selling marijuana. It was an
election year and they threw the
book at her.
What has Ziggy got on me.
Just a second. We've got Ziggy
in overload trying to cover the
two of you.
One of the women in the waiting
room says she's Liz Tate.
Elizabeth Tate. In for murder.
The other's in a state of shock.
My name's Liz. Liz Tate. Can you
remember that Angel?
Says it was the fifteenth time her
husband had beat her and she shot
That's not murder, that's
Not according to the jury.
Sam looks around to find a filthy mirror hung behind some mops. He takes a rag and wipes it enough to see Liz.
SAM'S POV - LIZ IN MIRROR
She is an attractive woman, whose eyes show the stress of a hard life. A thick gash runs down her forehead.
WIDER ANGLE INCLUDING ALL
Sam turns back and looks at Alia and then at Al. Alia's eyes are closed.
I'm right here.
Someone is coming. In the
distance I can see....
What's she talking about?
I...I don't know. She's looking
EXT. VOID - ON ALIA
She stands in the coral nothing watching. Frightened.
I'm afraid, Liz.
A figure in the distance approaches. She's getting closer. Her stride is strong and purposeful.
INCLUDING ALIA AND WOMAN
She stands, her eyes frozen, but her body turns to face the woman. The woman comes through the clouds enough to see she is ZOEY. As she closes in on Alia there is a moment of tension and Alia puts out her hand. Zoey walks right past Alia and away. Alia turns and watches.
Your name is Angel Jenson.
INT. BROOM CLOSET - ON SAM, AL AND ALIA - SFX
She sits calmly, her eyes still closed. Her hand extends through the air. Slowly, she lowers it.
You only know what Angel knows.
How can she protect herself? At
best she's got a little piece of
It'll have to be enough.
I want you to find Angel. Her
pain, her hope, her past. Every
piece of her that's left. That's
all you are now. Only Angel. Do
Alia nods and Sam watches as she sinks deeper into Angel.
I hope you know what you're doing.
I'm going to count to three and
when I do, I want you to open your
Aren't you supposed to give her a
secret word or something to get
her back to Alia?
You will stay Angel Jenson until
I say the word....
(off Sam's look)
Well, it worked for him.
She heard you. Say something.
Can you hear me Angel?
Maybe you switched her brain waves
close to your own.
What's your name?
Angel, on the count of three you
will wake up. You will remember
only what I told you.
One -- two -- three.
Alia's eyes flutter open. Just as she starts to get her bearings there is a bang and the door swings open, right through Al. Sophie reaches through a startled Al, pulling Alia out the door. Al jumps, backing out of her way, definitely shaken by her aggressiveness.
All right, tea time's over. Get
INT. PRISON CORRIDOR - DAY - ON ALL
Al stands waiting as Sam and a dazed Alia are taken and seated in the hard wooden chairs outside WARDEN MEYERS' office. One of the guards is a tight stocky black woman named VIVIAN. She speaks to Sophie.
He's off the phone. You first.
Sophie crosses to the office and gives a short knock.
WARDEN MEYERS' VOICE
INT. WARDEN MEYERS' OFFICE - DAY - ON SOPHIE
She enters the room and starts talking. She obviously respects this man or fears him. CAMERA follows Sophie as she makes her way around the room.
WARDEN MEYERS' VOICE
Are they ready to talk?
Angel's ready to crack, but Tate,
She's a survivor. Besides, three
years in a state penitentiary has
that effect on people. Makes them
Just how I like them.
Sophie stops just off of Meyers' desk. We see the profile of a strong-boned African-American man of about fifty. His hair attractive, with flecks of grey to give him a look of powerful distinction. He wears a sensible suit with sensible brown shoes. He sits, reading over a report.
Why don't you put the thumbscrews
on. Make them squirm a little.
It always amazes me when you put
the fear of Meyers on them, just
how quick they fold.
Let's just make sure one of them
hangs. That way everybody's
happy. INT. PRISON CORRIDOR - ON ALL
Sam and Alia wait just outside the door. Al pounds on the handlink.
Why am I here?
You're here because you were
stupid Liz. Really stupid.
I'm getting something Sam.
How long you been in here, Tate?
Three years on a life sentence.
Then you should know enough not
to mess with the Bennings.
Ziggy says there's a seventy-
you're here to keep Elizabeth Tate
from being executed for killing
a fellow inmate, named Carol
We didn't kill her.
I understand what you went
through when they put you in
that box. I couldn't take it
either. But I can't help you.
Not this time.
Carol told you the truth.
Told me what.
I...I can't remember.
If you didn't do it tell them
who did and walk away. Don't
let tehm put you back in there.
Don't say anything Angel. Not
around this group of Nazis.
The door opens and Sophie comes out.
Come on ladies, showtime.
I'm going back to see what I can
get out of Ziggy.
He punches the handlink and we....
INT. WARDEN MEYERS' OFFICE - MEYERS - SFX
hears the ring of the chamber door. Meyers sits reading a file when suddenly he is covered in a Quantum wash of red. When it subsides Zoey sits in his place. She lifts her hands, studying them and a smile breaks across her face, as we:
Zoey turns and looks at him, her memory starting to fall into place.

Zoey crosses to the doro and opens it. She gestures to Sophie, who enters the room.
My guests claim they know
That's a crock. Fiddler was
cleaning the toilets when Liz and
Angel dragged Carol in.
Thames starts adding data to the handlink. As she listens, Zoey crosses to the desk and picks up a manila file and starts to read.
Fiddler couldn't hear what they
were saying 'cause that little
accident last spring blew out her
ears. But she saw Carol all bent
over. Next thing she knew, these
two ran out and left her there,
dead on the floor in a pool of
Carol Benning, age twenty-eight.
In for possession and robbery.
Autopsy says she was stabbed.
Which of you did it?
So Fiddler's a liar?
Girl after my own heart. When in

Zoey comes extremely close to Sam

Maybe I pulled them out of the
cooler too soon.
I guess you did.
Why don't you escort them back.
I'm sure a few more days in
isolation will make them remember.
Alia turns to Sam; she becomes very edgy.
I don't want to go back in there.
Ooo, this little one's got a case
of the shakes.
Angel got a bad case of
claustrophobia. We practically
had to knock her out to get her
I can't go back!
It'll be all right....
No. No, it won't.
She grabs Sam's arm. There is panic written across Alia's face. Sam sees it and his mind starts to race.
Warden, sitting in a small dark
room and thinking about something
that we have no information on
isn't going to help either of us.
Why don't you let Angel and me go
back into the community. Find
out what happened.
And the big one wants to be a
stooly to protect the little one.
Sweet. Zoey crosses to the desk.
Why should I?
Because if you put us back in a
box nobody will find out anything
and Angel and I will get the rap.
The rap? How perfectly Forties.
Liz is right. You won't get
anywhere because nobody is going
Nobowy will rat to the Warden?
I love prison stories, they're so
Exactly. But they might talk to
There is a long pause and Zoey sits at Meyers' desk.
(looking at Sam)
You go back on C-Block.
You go back into the box.
As an incentive to have you find out
You don't have the slightest
choice in the matter.
No. We both go back on the block
or you can get your own
Illusions of power. A very
foolish thing for a prisoner to
Take Angel back to the cooler.
Angel freaks. Sophie rips the door open as Sam rushes to Alia's side.
Vivian! Kat! I need a hand here.
FEATURING SAM AND ALIA
Sam pulls her to him. He looks into her eyes and speaks very firmly and very straight.
You'll be all right.
I won't. I...I'm claustrophobic.
I know you are, Angel. It's okay.
Listen to me. Just breathe and
go back to the mountain. I'll get
you out of there as soon as I can.
Wait on the mountain.
With that, Alia is pulled away by Vivian and another guard. She stares at Sam, her eyes locked onto his until she is gone.
He turns back to Zoey. He's pissed but calm.
What do you mean, wait for me on
the mounta, Liz?
Just a dream we have.
You have twenty-four hours to find
who killed Carol or the death
report will read stabbed by
Elizabeth Tate and Angela Jenson.
I'll need free access to all the
Do whatever you want. Just do it
Take her back to C-Block.
Sam looks at Zoey. Their eyes are in a deadlock. Sophie places a hand on Sam and he turns. Sophie and Sam exit the room. NEW ANGLE ON THAMES AND ZOEY
The door closes and Thames crosses to the middle of the room, showing himself off and sings to the tune of "A Pirate's Life For Me".
Yo ho, yo ho, a hologram's life
Bloody brilliant, that machine!
Don't you think?
Zoey gets up and rounds Meyers' desk, going back to the mirror.
Just tell Lothos to get me data
on every inmate in here.
My, my, aren't we the testy one.
Don't play with me, Thames. I
want Alia and I don't want
anything happening to her before
I've had a chance to rip her head
All we know is that she Leaped
into this prison. We were just
locking onto her brain waves when
How the hell could she vanish; she
connected to my mesons?
We don't know. Lothos calculates
once you Quantum Leaped somehow
it affected the transmission.
We did that.
And so far we're 0 for 0.
I want you to go back and talk to
whoever leaped into the holding
More bad news, darling, there's
no one in the holding chamber.
When dealing with Quanta, nothing
Run a trace on the last
nanosecond before you lost her.
Rerun the Leap a million times,
but get me a lock on Alia.
FEATURING THAMES - SFX
He is obviously disappointed.
Oh Zoey, sweetheart. I was at
least hoping to stroll through the
women's shower once or twice. I
mean, after all, it is my first
day as a hologram.
Zoey crosses right up in his face. She is dead calm.
Or did youforget that I'm on
borrowed time here?
You're here until you do what
you're supposed to do.
I have a forty-eight-hour window
after my first Leap to get home.
After that the percentage drops
with every Leap.
Now get back there and do what I
told you to!
Thames looks at her and punches his handlink.
CLOSE ON ZOEY
Behind her we hear the water door open and shut. Zoey turns back one more time to the mirror and adjusts herself. She smiles approvingly.
Well, perhaps for the sake of
science I should find out how the
other half lives.
CLOSE ON MIRROR - MEYERS
He buttons the buttons on his double-breasted jacket.
On his smile we....
INT. PRISON - CELL BLOCK B - SUNSET - ESTABLISHING
The long rows of cells clang shut. The hallowed halls echo with each slam and remind us there is no way out.
INT. CELL - SUNSET - ON SAM
He sits pouring over whatever books and/or papers that fill Liz Tate's quarters. He stops and looks at a small digital clock that sits on her desk.
SAM'S VOICE OVER
I've been Leaping long enough to
know that when you cross minds
with a phobic, whatever fears they
have now belong to you.
Alia was holding for the moment,
but I had to ask myself...how
long. How long before what was
left of Angel cracked and Lothos
could lock onto Alia.
We've got problems, Sam. NEW ANGLE INCLUDING AL
He stands near the double bunks that line the walls of this sis-by-six grey cell.
Sam, Ziggy says there's another
She's picking up Alia.
We've counted her, Sam.
They sent someone after Alia?
Ziggy's hoping we discover them

definitely before they get to
Sam stands. He starts to pace.
Did you check on Alia?
She's not looking too great, Sam.
I went down to talk to her but all
she's doing is rocking back and
forth and saying something about
it wasn't her.
What wasn't her?
Doesn't make sense to me either.
She just kept saying it wasn't
Sam paces, pondering on what Al has just said.
Maybe it's Alia talking.
Trust me, if it was Alia, Lothos
would have zeroed in on her like
a Patriot on a SCUD.
Then it's residual from Angel.
Sam and Al turn.
NEW ANGLE INCLUDING FIDDLER
A heavyset woman whose nerves twitch and jump with every paranoid glance. There's something mentally flawed about her.
I...I didn't mean to get you in
no trouble. They just said,
Fiddler, what did you see and I
told 'em. I told 'em.
Sam and Al exchange a look, and Al begins adding data to the handlink.
What did you see, Fiddler?
She twitches and itches. Al shrugs, he's doing the best he can.
I...I was cleanin'.
On bathroom duty. That woulda
meant it was Thursday, 'cause I

And you do a real good job, too.
Yeah, I do, don't I?
You and Angel came in and you was

I couldn't hear what, though.
I'm getting something, Sam.
Then Carol come in, she was crying
and real upset, there was blood
on her and she was holding

said, I couldn't hear nothin'.
What was she afraid of, Fiddler?

Sophie's got a different version
of this story.
Al goes back to the handlink.
Something weird's gonig on here,
Sam. After Fiddler was released,
she vanished. Ziggy's got
Looks like she was beggin' you
From Liz. I mean me?
Yeah. Angel went to get towels.
Then Miss Sophie and her gang run
in and Carol just fell over, dead.
Whiter than a sheet, she was.
Blood all over the floor. And
I'd just cleaned it.
Ain't this nice. NEW ANGLE INCLUDING SOPHIE
She stands hinged in the doorway. Fiddler all but cowers like a frightened puppy. Sam and Al turn to face her. She enjoys intimidating Fiddler.
Kind of like a family reunion, ain't
What's Mean Jean here after?
The Warden told me I have

Actually you only got sixteen.
How time flies when you're having

Sophie gives a lascivious smile and exits as the handlink beeps and whines for attention. Al reads it.
History's changing, Sam. Not only
does Liz die but now so does
On Sam's look of concern, we....
Thames crosses next to her and whispers sensually into her ear.
This is our destiny, Zoey. You
were always the one who was
supposed to carry out his plan.
It's all a matter of timing, isn't
As they stare into each other's eyes, we....
ANGLE TO INCLUDE MASTERSON AND VIVIAN
From the expression on their faces all shit's broken loose. Sam is up and pulling Alia to her feet.
Meyers is on the rampage!
You didn't tell me he was
expecting you. You didn't tell
me you were going under.
Meyers wanted to seduce you.
Everyone knows what the hell
going under means. Now get back
in that box.
Alia panics, backing up against the wall.
You can't put her back in there.
You must be stupid and crazy!
You can't put her in there. It'll
If she doesn't get in that box,
I'll kill her myself.
Alia starts to bolt and Sam grabs her.
Wait! Wait! I'll take her to the
old transfer tunnels.
They're condemned. Besides,
Meyers will skin me alive.
NEW ANGLE - FEATURING VIVIAN AND ALIA
Vivian reaches out for Alia but she presses herself tighter against Sam.
I don't know how long I can keep
you down there but at least it
ain't the box.
Alia looks to Sam
It's the only choice you've got.
Whatever the hell you're gonna do
you better do it fast.
I can't let you out of here!
Sam cold-cocks her, nodding to Alia and Vivian. They exit. Alia turns back and gives one last frightened look. Sam goes into gear. He drags Masterson into Alia's cell, takes the keys and locks the door.
Sam squats outside the door and waits.
INT. PRISON CORRIDOR - NIGHT - ON VIVIAN AND ALIA
They race down the partially lit halls until Vivian hears someone coming. She slams Alia into a narrow passage way and presses in on top of her. They don't breathe. After a beat, Zoey and Sophie flash by.
CLOSE ON ALIA AND VIVIAN
There is a moment as the danger passes. Vivian looks, and then beckons Alia to follow.
INT. CORRIDOR - NIGHT - OND ZOEY AND SOPHIE
Zoey's expression is vehement as they approach the last corridor before isolation.
Masterson said Liz was down here.
Who moved her?
Zoey rounds the corner and stops.
Sam sits against the sealed door to the isolation room that held Alia.
INT. ISOLATION CHAMBER - HALLWAY - FEATURING SAM
Zoey glares at Sam and then moves in like a snake on her prey. Her voice is calm and even. After all, this was dessert.
You stood me up.
Angel needed me.
Mother, murderer and
psychotherapist. Is there
anything you don't do?
Some things. NEW ANGLE - SFX
Zoey circles Sam. She's just playing cat and mouse, and enjoying every minute of it. Sam's stalling for time.
You really shouldn't have stood
me up, you know.
I had all these fun things planned
Let Angel out.
Ah-ah-ah. First business then
Who killed Carol?
The imaging chamber door opens at the exact same time the water door opens behind Zoey. Al and Thames enter.
We're running out of time. Ziggy
projects their computer is about
to locate Alia.
What can I do?
Lothis thinks he's picking up
transmissions from Alia.
Open the door.
He steps in front of the door, blocking it.
The last transmission was from in here.
Get out of my way.
NEW ANGLE - SFX
Furious, Zoey reaches for Sam and as she grabs him to pull him out of the way. (I want to do a double morph here. I want Sam and Zoey to ripple into Liz and Meyers and then back to Sam and Zoey.) They react to the morph with shock and horror.
WIDER ANGLE ON AL AND THAMES
Al's jaw drops and Thames' eyes widen to the size of dinner plates.
WIDER ANGLE ON AL
Sam throws Zoey to the ground and blasts pasts Sophie, knocking the woman into the wall.
Stop him. Get a lock on him and
find him. Right now.
Thames is out with a pop. Sophie hits the escape sirens and they scream to life. Zoey is transfixed on the door.
Open the door!
Terrified, Sophie unlocks the heavy steel door and swings it open.
The shadows fall across her face as she steps into what she thinks is her final confrontation with Alia. It only takes one nanosecond to see the body in the chamber is Masterson. Her eyes flare.
TIGHT ON ZOEY
Her fists are clinched, and her face is twisted in total rage as she turns and we reveal Al watching and we....
INT. PRISON CORRIDOR - NIGHT - ON
She freezes for a bit and almost does a double-take in disbelief.
This is no time to be funny, Liz.
I'm not Liz. I'm a man named Sam.
And Meyers is a woman named Zoey.
Meyers is a woman.
ON SAM AND ALIA
Suddenly the sirens stop. Sam panics, knowing that he might trigger Alia's memory. He grabs Vivian's arms as she tries to grasp what he's saying.
These are horrible people.
They've traveled across time to
kill Alia...Angel, and you're our
Sam's face pleads for her help. Alia stands there, a lost soul. Vivian doesn't know what to think.
This is unreal!
Forget reality, Vivian! This has
nothing to do with anything you
know. If you don't help us right
now, there'll be no stopping them!
You have to help us!
Wait a minute!
If I'm stepping into the Twilight
Zone I just need a damn minute!
All right. All right. I know how
I can get you out.
This better be a flashback from
some drug I did in the Sixties.
Sam and Alia exchange a look as we....
EXT. COURTYARD - ON ZOEY, SOPHIE AND THAMES
The courtyard is abuzz of activity. Guards run in every direction. Two sets of German shepherds search the area.
Lothos has lost them. We've got
Look, we know they can't get out
of the complex.
Do we really?
The only way out of here is that
gate or that one, and neither of
them opens without keys.
Anything else getting out of here
is moving on four legs.
INT. TRANSFER TUNNELS - SAM, ALIA AND VIVIAN
It's dark and drippy. They are wet and filthy as they move through the slime. Vivian stops and hands him a good-sized pair of wire cutters.
There's an electric gate at the
end of it. Give me five minutes.
I'm gonna blow the power. When
I do you got fifteen seconds to
cut the lock and get out before
the backup generator kick in.
I'll be right behind you.
Why are you doing this?
Does it matter?
I want to know why some people
help other people.
'Cause my whole life I never did
anything really special and if a
tenth of what you told me is true,
this is really special.
Just once I want to be the good
Sam gives her a hug and pulls Alia into the darkened tunnel. We hold on Vivian a beat and they are gone. As she turns we....
INT. COURTYARD -
NIGHT - ZOEY AND THAMES
They track into the woods. Thames POPS back in. They all stop. The sounds of the dogs close in.
...now the whole party's here.
Zoey! Over here!
Sam pulls Alia in a different direction.
You're wasting your time.
Thames POPS out and so does Al.
Sam and Alia make their way up a small embankment. They are breathless and exhausted.
I can't run away from myself.
We have to turn ourselves into
someone else, we might....
Just as they crest the hill, they are blinded by a wash of white light.
NEW ANGLE FEATURING ZOEY
She steps into the Jeep's headlights and stands motionless, backlit by the blinding illumination. A shotgun sits poised in her hands.
Sam and Alia freeze in the flush of light like a deer caught before the kill. Al and Thames are there.
Run Sam. Save yourself. She's
With that Alia backs away from Sam, holding her arms out and trying to draw fire from Sam.
Here Zoey! You and me!
She's going to shoot!
CLOSE ON ZOEY
Her eyes are filled with hatred as she raises the gun. She is locked onto Alia. There are no more words.
CLOSE ON ALIA
She stares back, calm, cool, resigned to her fate.
CLOSE ON SAM
He yells up to the heavens.
No! In God's name, don't let this
WIDER - SFX
Sam lunges for Alia to drag her out of the way but it's as if she steps directly into the line of fire. The crack of three shots break the night. At the same time a FLASH of Quantum blues rushes over her. The bullets slam into the blast of white light, dissolving into a void.
WIDER ON ALL
The Quantum light subsides and instead of Alia, the real Angel fills the frame as if someone has dumped a bucket of ice water on her. She looks to Sam and then to Zoey.
There is a moment of silence. Each of them has an expression of shock. Thames punches into his handlink as it screams and whines at him.
Lothos lost her!
That's impossible. She Leaped!
She didn't Leap back!
We lost her!
Zoey's cold eyes turn on Sam.
But we have you.
As she raises the gun, Vivian steps into frame inches from Sam, holding a rifle. FEATURING SAM AND ZOEY
In a blur he grabs the gun and pumps off a shot. Zoey fires, but Sam pushes himself and Vivian out of the way.
Hit. She drops her gun and stands staring in disbelief. Thames flickers in and out behind her. He yells to Lothos.
She's dying! Leap her out! Leap
WIDER ON ALL - FEATURING SAM AND ZOEY - SFX
Her hateful glare dissolves into a flood of light. The evil red fingers engulf Zoey. As she dissolves, so does Thames. Suddenly, the real MEYERS stands where Zoey once was. There is a bullet hole in his suit. Vivian stands in shock knowing that Meyers was shot but is obviously untouched. Vivian looks on in amazement at Sam.
At that moment two other vehicles pull up. One, a State Trooper car and the other, Sophie and other Mallard guards jump out. Just then Al's handlink goes nuts.
Sam, you've got to talk to the
Sophie crosses next to Meyers as the State Troopers gather up the real Angel.
Get cuffs on her and put her in

NEA ANGLE FEATURING SAM
He holds his hands up to be cuffed. One of the troopers crosses to Sam.
Liz says Meyers is the one
responsible for Carol's death.
Sam yells loud enough for every one to hear.
Meyers killed Carol Benning.
Carol and Meyers had been having
an affair, she got pregnant....
Meyers got Carol pregnant.
That's a lie!

Bingo! Meyers and Sophie take the

Two guards take Sam. Vivian calls after them. She nods to Angel.
What about your friend?
We don't know where she went but
we know she didn't go back to
Wherever she is, she's free.
She's gone Vivian. We did it.
We've got to be the good guys.
There is an unspoken knowledge between Vivian and Sam. They exchange a smile as a blast of blue light engulfs him and he....
