Clare Higgins: Julia
[in a flashback, Julia relives the first time she met Frank, who is coming in from the rain]
Frank Cotton : Can I come in? Can I come in?
[Julia remains silent]
Frank Cotton : You're Julia, right?
Julia : That's right. Who are you?
Frank Cotton : I'm Frank. I'm brother Frank.
Julia : [Julia smiles with delight] Oh, yes.
Frank Cotton : I, uh... I came for the wedding. Well, can I come in or not?
[Julia leads her 1st victim into her home]
1st Victim : You know, it's funny. I... I feel like I've known you for years. You know?
1st Victim : [he tries kissing Julia, who is reluctant] What's the matter? What? This is what you brought me here for, isn't it? Well, isn't it?
Julia : I suppose so, yes.
1st Victim : So what's your problem? Let's get on with it.
1st Victim : [Julia pushes the man back from her, angering him] You're not gonna change your fucking mind, are you?
1st Victim : [quietly] I'm sorry.
Julia : Let's go upstairs.
Frank the Monster : I'm hurting.
Julia : Hurting?
Frank the Monster : My nerves are beginning to work again.
Julia : Good.
Frank the Monster : One more, maybe two.
Julia : Not again.
Frank the Monster : To heal me completely! Then we can be away from here before they start to follow.
Julia : Who?
Frank the Monster : The Cenobites. It's only a matter of time before they find I've slipped them.
[Julia finds a puddle of liquid maggots being eaten by rats in the attic]
Julia : [disgusted] Oh, God!
[when she screams, a hand grabs her ankle]
[Julia finds the undeveloped Frank in the attic]
Frank the Monster : Julia!
Julia : [gasps] Oh, my God.
Frank the Monster : Don't look at me.
Julia : [whimpers] Who are you?
Frank the Monster : I said, don't look. Help me!
Julia : Tell me who you are!
Frank the Monster : Frank.
Julia : [gasps] No. No!
Frank the Monster : Believe me. It's me. It's really me. His blood on the floor. It brought me back.
Julia : [trembling] Back? From where?
Frank the Monster : Just help me, will you? Please, God, help me!
[Julia walks her 1st victim into the empty attic]
1st Victim : This isn't the bedroom.
Julia : [smiles nervously] No.
1st Victim : So, what's going on?
Julia : We don't need a bed, do we?
1st Victim : [smiles] Well, no, I suppose not.
Julia : I've always preferred the floor.
1st Victim : Oh. First time for everything, eh?
[Julia agrees to help the skinless Frank]
Julia : You're hurting.
Frank the Monster : You won't cheat me, will you? You'll stay with me, help me? Then we can be together the way we were before. We belong to each other now, for better or for worse. Like love... only real.
[as Julia rubs Frank's finger tip over her lips]
[the skinless Frank shows Julia the box]
Frank the Monster : You promised me an explanation.
Frank the Monster : [Frank holds up the box] This is it.
Julia : Let me see!
Frank the Monster : No, don't touch it! It's dangerous. It opens doors.
Julia : What kind of doors?
Frank the Monster : The doors to the pleasures of Heaven or Hell. I didn't care which.
[Julia tries to stop Larry from investigating the banging in the attic]
Julia : It was nothing.
Julia : [as Larry moves to go upstairs] Larry!
Larry : What's the matter with you, anyway?
Julia : It's just - It's just that I hate the thunder.
Larry : [the thunder and lightening continues] I'm here. You're safe. You're trembling. This is nothing to be afraid of.
Julia : [Julia sees the skinless Frank come out of the closet behind Larry] No.
[Frank silently walks to the foot of the bed]
Julia : No, please, don't. No, please. I can't bear it. Please! No, please, no! Please. Please! No!
[Frank stands quietly, slicing open a rat with his switchblade]
Julia : I can't bear it! Please, no!
Larry : [as Julia whimpers and cries, Larry stops] I don't understand you. I mean, one minute... you're all over me. And the next... I just don't understand you.
[Julia and the skinless Frank discuss what to do with Kirsty and Larry]
Julia : [the phone starts to ring] That's probably her now. Or the police.
Frank the Monster : It doesn't make any difference.
Julia : Don't you care?
Frank the Monster : What I care about is a new skin.
Julia : Maybe we should just leave.
Frank the Monster : Like this? Look at me.
Julia : We can't just stay here.
Frank the Monster : [in a low voice] My brother will be home soon.
[Frank, wearing Larry's skin, tells Kirsty that Frank is dead]
Kirsty Cotton : [in tears] Your brother Frank is upstairs. He... he's upstairs and he's trying to kill you.
Frank (wearing Larry's skin) : Now, wait, wait, wait! Whatever Frank did was unspeakable. Unspeakable.
Frank (wearing Larry's skin) : But believe me. It's finished with now.
Kirsty Cotton : Why is it finished?
Frank (wearing Larry's skin) : He's gone.
Kirsty Cotton : What does gone mean?
Julia : He's dead, Kirsty.
Frank (wearing Larry's skin) : He was insane, baby. A mad dog. I had to put him out of his misery. Jesus, what a scene.
