was alive and beautiful dodge dead was that bad luck or was it cause and effect you picked it so a dot I didn’t pick it the whole Bush died overnight for no reason it must be a reason is always a reason for everything is there maybe you can give me a reason for this take a good look at it it looks different is the way the light hit it isn’t the light is the colors look at it again oh I see what you mean they faded hasn’t it all the life’s gone out of it your rose bush died your painting fade but have you ever had a common ordinary for Jack what do you mean 65% of all accidents are Falls

at you’re bad luck Jeff it’s a little too bad to be true your porcelain figure fell off the table while nobody was in the house shamrock broke his leg while he was in these own store now your picture phase it’s too bizarre Jeff the impossible can happen but not over and over again are you trying to tell me they didn’t happen no they happened all right but it wasn’t luck can’t you see the pattern that runs along your accident shamrock mr. a radio cheering a statue your rosebush and the collision are the highway last year that’s when it all began six accidents and every one of them killed something you loved do you know the mathematical odds are against a run like that I’ve been into one are you telling me they weren’t accidents at all no I’m only trying to tell you that lightning can strike twice in the same place Jeff but not six times you mean you think that all of these things have been planned by someone the man who hate you who’s trying to destroy you who could it be Jeff I

goodbye well what do you think it’s hard to understand why it’s faded the artisans used pen colors continues tempera there must be reading I would say Vsauce beta belonging watercolour that’s the best you can get nothing face them except continued exposure to strong sunlight for a little month that’s impossible I can’t imagine what courses I tell you what I can do I can talk to a couple of artists I know they might have an idea I think my best bet is to go and tea-tray of it here’s a watercolor man he’s one of the best you ought to know everything about it I think I’ll catch him tomorrow morning you know drill team the natural is keeping the dogs horses and cows my wife in a beauty queen ain’t much enjoy the trouble oh no travel at all Oh miss Foster yeah I just remembered something years ago I framed some pictures for a painter by the name of Torres Vicente Torres one of the paintings was an old lady playing the guitar it was a watercolor I said the man who bought the picture took Sun lamp treatment that winter and he took it on a couch right under the painting and he was mystified why the color faded so we turned a found out the delays from the Sun lamp broke down the pigment can you remember the name of the man who owned that picture I don’t think I have in you as a local man what about the artist is he still in pain get Doris you door five years ago oh thank you again very strange you told anybody else about this of course not but someone in pine cliff knows that you can fade the colors out of a painting by turning a Sun lamp on it if we can find out who owns that picture Jeb the portrait of the old woman with the guitar if somebody want to destroy a painting there must be a hundred easier ways of doing it that’s not all read this barson and you saw underneath the matador bush I dug it out this morning enough I like to burn out the whole root system it didn’t get there by accident Jeff someone put it there someone who knows how to poison a rosebush or a dog or man’s life would you really like to help you know I would and forget it forget the whole thing but there was poison in the root system the chemist told me you never saw the chemist you never heard of a portrait of an old woman with a guitar you understand no no I don’t understand yeah Jeff your house look out the window I saw from upstairs what it’s burning you sorry

Rogers here just came to town miss Nisha Rogers chair of the hospital committee oh of course how are ya this is the Jeffco Helen I recommended to you yes we examined your plans last night mr. Cole Helen good clean modern lines thank you I’m sorry we couldn’t give you the job you couldn’t what I was just about to tell you Ben we decided on Talbot and Talbot you did now this is a surprise Daisy which was it mr. Rogers politics our stupidity I beg your pardon if they’ve given it to Mac Reuter or Chesney and pike I wouldn’t have said a word because I know the boys would have gotten a good modern hospital but Talbot and Talbot haven’t had a new idea since Burnham did the Flatiron Building well now take it easy oh they’re not architects their political finagle errs maybe you can tell me just one detail in their plan that was an improvement over mine name just one young man your attitude doesn’t deserve a reply but since you’re a friend of Mr Sheppard’s I will say to you that no member of the board myself included could understand our reputable architect would submit his design for an important building with no interior detail whatsoever no detail there were 17 blueprints of the interior right down to the placement of the operating tables and surgery you may have drawn them young man but you didn’t send them to us there were no interior details none at all could they have been misplaced somewhere in your office not possibly the sealed packages were open in the presence of the entire board uh maybe you misplace them Jeff you know how that’s my teacher Ben suppose you can find the duplicates with a bawd be willing to reconsider that’s impossible the contract has already been awarded oh this is quite a shock Stacy I felt sure the co hell would get this job oh I’m sorry Ben but you understand my position Jeff you weren’t going on without me were you without you you told me to drop in at 5:30 you drive me home to remember I’m not going home now okay anything wrong everything’s wrong come on let’s get out of here it’s dreadful whole gears were completely wasted typical coherent luck don’t keep calling it luck supposing someone took those bands out of the office and wrapped the package over again who do thing like that Keith would he hate you he hates everybody but something twisted inside of him and we take a psychiatrist to explain it and why didn’t mr. Sheppard keep him all at the office doesn’t know what he’s like go to mr. she acted though she’s still in love with him they’re women who love men like Keith take a psychiatrist explain that too it’s getting kind of late I’d better Drive you home [Music] if you miss me aware what you say nothing drive faster with you Jeff I want to feel the wind in my face all right [Music] hey you are miss foster 296 hollow state Paul River Massachusetts thank you very much sergeant there’s one thing more the accident happened on 12-mile drive in it that’s right just three miles from fine clip thank you very much having department Oster full definite have to based on this father it’s for you for me hello uh miss Foster uh this is dr. Hart blade my office is just across the street I saw you going to the police station as I parked my car are you in trouble in this posture in trouble why no I mean not exactly I think you better drop into my office can you come over right away well I I have a long-distance phone call to make first well just as soon as you complete your call yes I I think I can come by in about 20 minutes thank you Thank You Georgie it’s alright miss Foster hello dr. harlot come in come in IRA starboard when you telephone me at the police station well I’m very glad I spotted you an idea why did you ask me if I was in trouble well the fact is I’m in rather an awkward position but your aunt is getting along in years and I didn’t want to disturb her unduly so I thought it best to discuss this matter with you today Sid oh thank you Yes Doctor since I’m your aunt’s physician I feel it’s my duty to inform you that she isn’t safe that neither one of you is safe for that matter so I wanted to get your permission to speak to your houseguest to ask him to move to a hotel but I don’t understand what is that to do with my art safety yes I was afraid you’d ask me that the fact is you’re forcing me to take an unethical action the man isn’t my patient and even if he were what ever did you try to say doctor why don’t you just go ahead and say it yes you’re quite correct I’ll come to the point let me say that I believe your houseguest mr. ko Hallam is definitely paranoiac he seems to have all the obvious symptoms of delusions of persecution if that’s true then you and your aunt are in a hazardous position two helpless women in the same house for the man who may become dangerous at any moment we can’t allow it may I ask you a question doctor certainly you speak of delusions of persecution but our delusion is imaginary thing that never happened that’s right Podesta was poisoned his house was burned down that was no delusion I saw it myself did you see the gasoline can guess Lincoln the gasoline can the police found in the ruins of hilltop it was an unusual type of container only one store in Pine Cliff sells them and that store sold such a can to Jeff last Monday how do you know a chief of police told me so this morning but I don’t see how and that isn’t all the body of the dog was disinterred he died of arsenic poisoning two days after his master bought a package of weed out are you trying to tell me the Jeff burned down his own house that he poisoned his own dog that’s impossible no man in his right MA exactly no man in his right mind but why why would he do a thing like that listen listen to this once the feeling of guilt is firmly established in the subconscious the patient may do injury to himself as a form of penance or self-imposed retribution such actions may be taken without conscious volition and will often disappear entirely from the memory stream so the patient is later unaware that his injuries were self-inflicted that’s my theory a Jeff is suffering from feelings of guilt and he’s unconsciously punishing himself for it guilt you talking about guilt I don’t understand you what did he guilty of his fiance was killed in an automobile accident a year ago and he was at the steering wheel at the time it would be an unusual man who didn’t reproach himself under those circumstances even if he was blameless and if he thought he was responsible for the death of the woman he loved if the thought began to prey on his mind it’s rather an obvious theory isn’t it yes and I have your permission to speak to him I’ll be as tactful as possible no not yet not until Friday Friday I’ve got to have time to think about it I’ll be very careful but promise me you won’t be doing yet well I can’t force my opinions on you miss Foster but I must emphasize as strongly as I can that delay can be dangerous extremely dangerous I’ll be very very careful dr. hartney I hope you will fuck thank you [Music] [Music] that man must be crazy thank you very much [Music] hello Jeff hello check the spades that bad luck like a black cat a dead man’s car Oh is there a card for a dead woman the Queen of Spades I almost proved this afternoon oh I just gotten off the button was waiting to cross the street in a car nearly ran me down they almost seem to be trying did you see the driver no it was too busy trying to get out of the way what kind of a car was a green convertible like you’re at the top with that you’ve got to get out of here Ellen you’ve got to get out of pine clip right away Roger because something else is going to have an eye I can feel it it might happen to you I’m not going to leave not now I’m warning you Ellen no you cannot go you’re asking for trouble and I’ll really ask for it watch yourself closely watch yourself every minute
