Followed by Saw V

Saw IV is a 2007 horror film and midquel to the 2006's Saw III. It was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by newcomers Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan and Thomas Fenton. The film was released in North America on October 26, 2007. The film's North American release date followed the series' tradition that the films be released the Friday before or on Halloween of each year.

The film continues the story of the Jigsaw Killer and his obsession with teaching people the "value of their own lives". Despite Jigsaw being killed in the last installment, the film still focuses on his ability to manipulate people into continuing his work of trapping people into his "games".

Plot

During John Kramer's (Tobin Bell) autopsy, a wax-coated microcassette is found in his stomach; it is given to Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor), whom it informs that he too will be tested, and that the games will continue. Meanwhile, Trevor (Kevin Rushton) and Art (Justin Louis) awaken in a mausoleum. Both men are chained at the neck to a winch; Trevor's eyelids are sewn together, as is Art's mouth, rendering communication impossible. When the winch begins pulling them together, Trevor panics and attacks Art, who kills him and takes a key from his collar to free himself, tearing his lips in the process.

Four days after her disappearance, the corpse of Detective Kerry (Dina Meyer) is found by the police. After Hoffman cautions Lieutenant Rigg (Lyriq Bent) for going through an unsecured door in order to reach Kerry, he meets Peter Strahm (Scott Patterson) and Lindsey Perez (Athena Karkanis), two FBI agents who had previously been in contact with Kerry. They inform Hoffman that neither Jigsaw nor Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith) murdered Kerry, as neither were physically capable of placing her in the trap, indicating there is a third party involved. Strahm later becomes suspicious of Rigg, who is convinced that Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg), who disappeared six months previously, is still alive.

That evening, Rigg is attacked in his home; upon awakening, a videotape informs him that Matthews is still alive, with ninety minutes to save himself, with Hoffman's life at stake as well. He finds Brenda (Sarain Boylan), a female pimp, chained to a chair with a pig mask covering her face. The first test, "see what I see," is for him to leave her there; he ignores the message and ends up triggering a device to begin peeling her scalp off. He manages to free her, but she attacks him; she had been told that she would be arrested if Rigg saved her unless she killed him first. He throws her into a mirror and leaves; her corpse is later found by police, led by Strahm and Perez. Rigg's next test takes place at a motel, where the words "feel what I feel" are painted on a door. He forces the manager, Ivan Landsness (Marty Adams), into a prearranged trap; pictures around the room show that Ivan was a serial rapist. Ivan must choose between blinding himself with blades or being dismembered. After Rigg leaves, Ivan only manages to blind one eye before time runs out and his limbs are ripped off. The third test, "save as I save," takes place at a school where Rigg once attacked a man named Rex, who abused his wife and daughter. He finds Rex and Morgan, his wife, hanging back-to-back from a harness with several rods impaling them together. The rods are placed through vital arteries in Rex's body, but non-vital arteries in Morgan's; she can live by removing the rods while he will die either way. Rigg finds her with one rod left; he hands her the key to her harness and leaves, setting off the fire alarm as he does, for his final destination.

Meanwhile, Strahm and Perez alternate between interrogating Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell), Jigsaw's ex-wife, and investigating the scenes of each victim's trap. The two discover that they are Jigsaw targets as well, and that Art Blank, a lawyer who had gone missing two weeks previously, had successfully defended each victim of their crimes; he was also Jill's lawyer. When Perez is hospitalized after an incident at the school involving Jigsaw's puppet, which also predicts that Strahm will "soon take the life of an innocent man," Strahm furiously interrogates Jill, who reveals the rest of Jigsaw's backstory. She had been pregnant with a baby to be named Gideon, after John's first project as a civil engineer, but miscarried after drug addict Cecil Adams (Billy Otis) robbed her clinic; this would later drive her and John into divorce. After John learned of his cancer and survived his suicide attempt, he began his work testing others, targeting Cecil first. He placed Cecil in a trap where Cecil was to push his face into several knives to release himself, but the trap collapsed and he blindly lunged at John, who sidestepped and allowed Cecil to fall into a tangle of razor wire. Additionally, Art Blank is revealed to have worked with John before. Strahm connects this story with the Gideon Meatpacking Plant, the location of Rigg's final test. He arrives shortly after Rigg, but ends up trailing Jeff Reinhart (Angus Macfadyen), who is making his way to the makeshift sickroom of the plant. He eventually catches up to Jeff in the sickroom; Jeff waves a gun at Strahm, demanding to know where his daughter is, and Strahm kills him in self-defense, fulfilling Jigsaw's earlier prediction.

Simultaneously, Rigg is on a trail leading to a large room containing Hoffman, Matthews and Art Blank. Matthews stands atop an ice block with a noose around his neck, and Hoffman is tied to a chair with a gag in his mouth and an electrode at his feet. The two are at opposite ends of a balanced scale, and if Matthews slips off the ice after too much time passes, he will be hanged and Hoffman will be electrocuted by the melted water reaching the electrode. Two more ice blocks are positioned on the ceiling, set to swing down and crush Matthews' head if the door to the room is opened. Art must monitor them while a device on his back is set to cut through his spine; he can only release them after ninety minutes have passed. When Rigg arrives, Art and Matthews attempt to ward him off, and Matthews shoots Rigg, though he still makes it through the door with one second left on the clock. Rigg shoots just as Matthews is killed by the ice blocks. He then kills Art, believing him to be responsible for the trap, and learns from the tape recorder in Art's hand that he has failed the test by interfering; Matthews and Hoffman would have lived if Rigg had not tried to save them. An unharmed Hoffman releases himself and leaves Rigg to die, revealing himself as the second accomplice. He arrives in front of the sickroom just as Strahm kills Jeff, and seals Strahm inside with the four corpses. He is later called to Jigsaw's autopsy, which took place after the events of the film.

Cast

Production

There were rumors about who was writing the script for Saw IV, including Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan.[2] On a news article on the same rumor site, an actual writer was revealed, Thomas Fenton.[3] There was also a hunt for the director of Saw IV before it was officially stated that Darren Lynn Bousman would direct the fourth installment, with creators and executive producers, James Wan and Leigh Whannell also returning.[4] Two of the rumored directors were David Moreau and Xavier Palud.[5] It has been stated that 90% of the crew from the last movie will be back.[6]

On the official Saw fan page, director Bousman says: "Scott Patterson, the first day he shows up, he says, ‘I’m going to do something a little different here.’ And I’m like, ‘Alright.’ We yell ‘action’ and all of a sudden he started improvising and it was gold. It was like the best stuff I’d ever seen and he’s insane."[6]

Production offices opened on February 12, 2007 to begin the pre-production period. The filming of Saw IV began on April 16, 2007[7] and continued for 6 weeks.[8] The filming location for the horror film was Toronto, Ontario,[9] the same place both Saw II[10] and Saw III[11] were filmed. Post-production period began on May 19.[12]

Shooting for the film ended on May 30, 2007,[6] with a budget of approximately $10,000,000.[13] In an interview with Darren Lynn Bousman, he stated that the last work on Saw IV would happen in August to be able to have prints made.[13]

At Comic Con 2007 it was revealed by director Darren Lynn Bousman and producer Mark Burg that the MPAA had given the film an NC-17 rating. They would have to figure out whether or not to cut the film to achieve an R rating or release it as an NC-17 film.[14]

Lions Gate has teamed with the American Red Cross for the annual Saw IV Blood Drive.[15] Since the first Saw blood drive in 2004, Saw film-goers have donated nearly 38,000 pints of blood to help save as many as 112,500 lives. Collection totals have doubled year after year resulting in tens of thousands of lifesaving blood transfusions.

On August 30, 2007, it was announced that the film was officially rated R for sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture throughout, and for language. This was clarified by the new poster (which can be seen at the top of this page), www.ropeofsilicon.com, and numerous other websites.

On August 31, 2007, the official trailer was placed on Yahoo Movies.[16] On the same date, the official website for Saw IV was launched.

Reception

Box office

The film grossed $31,756,764 in the United States and an additional $71,228,814 internationally, bringing the theatrical total to $134,528,909. [17]

Reviews

Critical reception to Saw IV was generally negative. Rotten Tomatoes reports that 18 percent of critics gave the film a positive review, based upon a sample of 67, with an average score of 3.7 out of 10.[18] On Metacritic, the film has an average score of 36 out of 100, based on 16 reviews.[19] Scott Schueller from the Los Angeles Times called it "a film as edgy as a rubber knife" and said that "if the terrible craft of Bousman's film doesn't turn your stomach, the borderline pornographic violence will. It's disconcerting to imagine anyone enjoying the vile filth splashing the screen."[20] Frank Scheck from The Hollywood Reporter said "the famously inventive torture sequences here seem depleted of imagination", but added that "it hasn't yet jumped the shark like such predecessors as the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th movies eventually did."[21] Peter Hartlaub from The San Francisco Chronicle called it "the Syriana of slasher films, so complicated and circuitous that your only hope of understanding everything is to eat lots of fish the night before and then watch each of the previous films, in order, right before you enter the theater."[22] James Berardinelli wrote that "Saw IV functions as a drawn-out, tedious epilogue to a series that began with an energetic bang three years ago with Saw, then progressively lost momentum, coherence, and intelligence with each successive annual installment. Saw IV is nothing short of a money-grab. Despite a couple of loose ends (that are tied up unsatisfactorily here), Saw III finished the story."[23]

Positive reviews came from Scott Weinberg from Fearnet, who said that while it "is almost certainly the weakest of the series where stuff like plot, logic, and chills are concerned... there's still more than enough here to keep the fans intrigued, entertained, and squirming in their seats" and added that the "Saw-makers are to be commended for actually putting forth this sort of effort. I grew up in an era that offered little more than quick-cash, stand-alone horror sequels like Halloween 5 and Friday the 13th Part 7 — so the fact that these producers actually give a damn about narrative continuity (right down to the smallest detail) is fairly impressive."[24] Horror.com said that "with Saw IV, the pieces have all come together and [it's] the best of the lot."[25] Jamie Russell from the BBC called it "deeply unsettling; just like a horror movie should be."[26] Chris Hewitt from St. Paul Pioneer Press claimed that "Saw IV is a fluid film, as neatly constructed as the deadly puzzles Jigsaw creates to snare his victims." Film School Rejects said that "One of the things that is most intriguing to me about the Saw movies is how much I actually have enjoyed them" and claimed that "As far as fourth installments in a series, Saw IV is quite impressive." Linda Cook from Quad-City Times gave it a positive review also and said "The twists and turns are deadly, the 'lessons' are taught once again, and we have the perfect setup for Saw V."[27]

Home media

The Unrated Director's Cut was released on January 22, 2008 in America and March 3, 2008 in the UK, on DVD and Blu-ray. The "Extreme Edition", which was released in the UK only, before the release of Saw V in October 2008[28][29] features a 95-minute running time of the film.

Unrated Director's Cut

In this version, several changes have been made from the theatrical version[30]:

  • In the Mausoleum trap, Trevor is hit with a hatchet four times instead of two.
  • In his apartment, Rigg is shown waking up in bed after hearing a noise outside his room. A light is seen turning on then off, and then someone runs past his bedroom door.
  • There is some extra dialogue exchanged between Rigg and Brenda.
  • How Ivan gets captured is different. In the unrated version, Rigg lures Ivan's dog Chance up to his room. When Ivan comes looking for her, Rigg surprises him with his gun drawn.
  • Ivan's death is extended and is more graphic.
  • Rigg pulls the final rod out of Morgan at the "Save As I Save" test.
  • New Scene: Agent Strahm calls Perez's mother and informs her that Perez has been injured.
  • Strahm calls for back-up before entering the Gideon building.
  • The "Open the door and you will find me" key is further explained. It is the key needed to open the door to the "sick room" that Jigsaw was killed in and Jeff was sealed in at the end of the third film.
  • Footage of Hoffman unstrapping himself during the climax has been cut.

The DVD extras include:

  • Two audio commentaries (One with director Darren Lynn Bousman and actor Lyriq Bent; the other featuring the producers.)

Quotes

  • Cherish your life is the concept this entire clinic was built on. Cherish your life. Your life.
  • [To Cecil] You're my problem. And you're becoming everyone else's, too.
  • [To Art Blank] Get the fuck out of here.
  • What's happened to me? What's happened to me?! [Smashes a small clock]
  • I can't give you time. Time's an illusion.
  • [To Cecil] You see, things aren't sequential. Good doesn't lead to good, nor bad to bad. People who steal, don't get caught, they live the good life. Others lie, and cheat and get elected. Some people stop to help a stranded motorist and get taken out by a speeding semi. There's no accounting for it. How you play the cards you're dealt--that's all that matters. Look at me. Do you understand what I'm saying to you?
  • It's the tool, the tool that's going to save your life. I want to play a game. Your life is a lie, Cecil. Now comes your moment of truth. As a drug addict and a theif, you've preyed on the kindness of others to fuel your addiction. Today, we're bringing the ugliness inside you out into the open. Now, in order for you to stay alive, we have to match your face with the ugliness of your soul. Just lean forward, into the knives, with your face. Press hard enough, and you'll release the arm and leg restraints that bind you. Press hard, though, and you'll be free. Or, you can sit lightly and bleed out on the floor. Live or die, Cecil. Make your choice.
  • [To Amanda] Your time's running out. Now you think about what you are doing. You think about what you promised me. You think about tomorrow.
  • [To Jeff] Live or die, Jeff. Make our choice.

Tapes

  • Are you there, Detective? If so, you are probably the last man standing. Now, perhaps you will succeed where the others have failed. You think you will walk away untested. I promise that my work will continue. You think it's over just because I'm dead. It's not over. The games have just begun.
  • Hello, Officer Rigg. Welcome to your rebirth. For years, you have stood by and witnessed as your colleagues have fallen. You have remained untouched, while Eric Matthews has disappeared. But, with your survival came your obsession. Obsession to stop those around you from making the wrong choices, thus preventing you from making the right ones. You wanted to save everyone. Tonight, I will give you the opportunity to face your obsession. Look closely. Eric Matthews is still alive. The block of ice he stands upon is melting. He has but 90 minutes to save himself. Detective Hoffman's fate is linked to Eric's survival. Heed my warning Officer Rigg: Their lives hang in the balance of your obsession. Will you learn how to let go and truly save them? The choice is yours.
  • Officer Rigg, your first test. The person in front of you is in desparate need of help. But it is not your job to save them. You view this person as a victim, but if you were to SEE WHAT I SEE, beneath the mask is a criminal undeserving of the life she leads. Your obsession tells you to save the victim. I tell you to walk away. The choice is yours.
  • Hello, Brenda. I want to play a game. An officer will try to save you. If he is successful, then your game begins. This man will use these photos to sentence you for your crimes and the only way to stop him is taped underneath the TV. Let him save you and accept your fate to rot in prison or kill him and gaurantee your freedom. Make your choice.
  • Hello, officer Rigg. In order for you to fully understand my way, you must FEEL WHAT I FEEL. The photo before you is of a man in desparate need of help. In the next room are the tools to his salvation. His life is in your hands but in the end, only he can save himself. Be careful. There are cameras watching and you must hide your identity. Make your choice.
  • If you are playing this tape, then you are one step closer to truly understanding how to save a life. As an officer of the law, you find yourself torn. Is the man before you a victim or a perpetrator of violence? His salvation is out of your hands. It is your choice if you wish to put it into his own. Once this lesson is learned, you will find yourself one step closer to truly saving Eric Matthews. Without you, this man's game cannot begin. Force him into the position to face his demons and let him make the decision.
  • Hello, Ivan. As a voyeur, you have kept photos of those you have victimized. Can you see the pain you have brought them? You have torn apart their lives. You've used your body as an instrument of abuse. Now I give you the choice of what you decide is most important: Your eyes, which have led you blindly astray... or your body, which has caused those around you endless suffering. You have been handed the tools which can save your life. Decide quickly, though. In 60 seconds, the choice will be made for you.
  • The human body is a facinating organism. It can withstand the most brutal injury... and yet repair itself miraculously. But you know this all too well. How many broken bones have you suffered at the hands of your husband? How many flesh wounds have you endured? With time, the bruises have healed, but your pain has not. Today, I empower you to take control of your life. Can you disconnect from the one thing that has brought you and others so much pain? With time, your wounds will heal. His, however, will not. Remove the ties that bind or bleed to death from your inactivity. The choice is yours.
  • Hello, Officer Rigg. What have you learned thus far? Experience is a harsh teacher. First comes the test, second comes the lesson. If you are to SAVE AS I SAVE, then you will see the person in front of you is but a student. So I ask you, Officer Rigg: Has the pupil learned her lesson? Has she been told the error of her ways? Does she now view the world differently? Officer Rigg, the key to this person's freedom lies in the palm of your hand, but only after she has done her own part. Can you play your role in her salvation? Once judgement has been made, though, the key to finding your next destination is just off the map.
  • Hello, Agent Perez. And welcome to the world you have long studied. Your partner, Agent Strahm, will soon take the life of an innocent man. Heed my warning, Agent Perez: Your next move is critical. [Whispers] Open the door...
  • [Part of Cecil's rejected tape] Your life is a lie. Now comes your moment of truth. As a drug user and a huslter, you've played roullette with other people's lives. Today, you play with your own.
  • Hello, Officer Rigg. If you are hearing this, then you have reached Detective Matthews and Detective Hoffman in under 90 minutes, resulting in their deaths. The rules were clear. You were warned. They had to save themselves. Their salvation was out of your hands. Time was on your side but your obsession wouldn't let you wait. Instead of saving Detective Matthews, you cost him his life. You failed your final test.
  • You feel you now have control, don't you? You think you will walk away untested. I promise that my work will continue. That I have ensured. By hearing this tape, some will assume that this is over but I am still among you. You think it's over just because I am dead. It's not over. The games have just begun.

Daniel Rigg

  • I thought [Kerry] was still alive. I thought I could save her.
  • It's in our nature to save them. It's what we do.
  • Eric [Matthews] is still out there, man.
  • [Whilst Brenda is trying to kill him] I just saved your fuckin' life!
  • This what you do with your spare time?
  • You're going to have to tell me how you got those bruises on your hand and your neck. Was this an accident or did someone do this to you on purpose? You can stop it from happening if you tell me the truth.
  • You have to save yourself.
  • I had more time. I still had fuckin' time!
  • Put your fucking hands where I can see them! PUT YOUR FUCKING HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM!

Mark Hoffman

  • You know never to go through an unsecured door. Ever.
  • "Cherish Your Life."
  • [To Rigg] We chose this. Go home.
  • It's time to let go.
  • [About Kerry's trap] It was constructed for her execution. Betrayed the rules.
  • So why don't we just start at the end and work our way backwards?
  • [About Rigg] Everyone around him keeps dying.
  • [Deleted Scene] Most of the evidence in this room was confiscated from Jigsaw's lair. [Picks up a box and sets it on a table] This evidence is specifically about his victims. Each victim was studied, abducted and tested. As of today, we have an additional 16 individuals classified as missing around the city. These people could've skipped town, fallen off a pier, passed off drunk in an alleyway, or these people could be tested like the rest. If you're looking for an additional accomplice, here's your first 16 possibilities.
  • [About the teddy bear he is holding] Girl. It's a short story, believe me.
  • [To Art whilst strapped to a chair] You fuckin' hear me, you fuckin' motherfucker?!
  • Game over.

Peter Strahm

  • "Open the door and you will find me" mean anything to you?
  • We're here to help find who your department couldn't, detective. The person helping Jigsaw and Amanda Young.
  • How do you feel about a husband who takes a motto from your drug clinic, designed to help people, and twists it into some kind of manic torture mantra?
  • Look, Ms. Tuck. I just left a room with more blood on the walls than paint. Two officers are dead and there's a growing pile of bodies in their wake. And every detail we unearth about your Hall of Fame psychopath husband points to you as a possible accomplice. I am just curious as to why.
  • You know, there's a lot of people out there looking for answers, wanting to place the blame on someone. That person is you. But you know what the best part is? I don't have to convince everybody. Just 12 people.
  • Okay, people break up. Relationships end. It's called "life."
  • Okay, let's review. Girl loves boy, boy loves girl, boy gets girl pregnant, girl loses baby, boy turns into a serial killer. Jill, I'm not buying it.
  • We're the two Jigsaw targets.
  • [Deleted scene] Hello, Mrs. Perez? Yeah, hi. This is Peter Strahm. I work with your daughter Lindsey. Yeah. I have some bad news.
  • You see that, Jill? That's a federal fuckin' indictiment. It's got your name on it. You want to put someone else's name on it? You start talking to me, okay? What's with the doll? What's with the tricycle? Who were John's business associates before he went insane?
  • Where the hell is Art Blank?! Obstruction of Justice, Aiding and Abetting, Conspirator to Murder. TALK TO ME! In 15 minutes, more people are gonna die, Jill. Police officers. [Refers to Art Blank] He's business partner. He's a friend. He is the accomplice we have been looking for and he is your fuckin' LAWYER!
  • [Referring to Perez' blood on his shirt] You see this? This is my partner's blood. She's fighting for her life right now, because of your lunatic husband. What happened between Jigsaw and Art Blank?
  • [Finding Jeff] Let me see your fucking hands!
  • Jesus.

Lindsey Perez

  • John Kramer owned a company called The Urban Renewal Group. No irony in that.
  • If Detective Hoffman and anyone else in this precinct is in danger, I think they should know about it.
  • [Seeing Hoffman with a teddy bear] I didn't know you were married.
  • It's a setup to announce Rigg is the accomplice.
  • Rigg didn't kill Ivan. Ivan made his own choice. Isn't that the whole Jigsaw mantra?
  • "Save as I Save." So what did he do, free her and let him die?
  • What is that?

Art Blank

  • It will come back to you.
  • Hey, asshole. If you jump off that block, you electrocute him. [Points a revolver at Hoffman] If that block had melted more, he'd be fried. Do you understand?
  • Listen to me. I'm not the one you gotta worry about. You understand me? I'm not the one you gotta worry about. [Under his breath] Asshole. As a matter of fact, I recommend you stay alive until the fuckin' clock counts down. [Picks up his revolver] Here's the good news: If this other guy finishes his test, the three of us can go free. Hey, look at me. Look at me. If you don't stay on the block, your partner gets electrocuted. Now for my final task. [Hands Matthews the revolver and a single bullet] Live or die. You make the choice.
  • Jigsaw's testing you, you fuckin' piece of SHIT!!!

Eric Matthews

  • [Audio only; Eric's last words in Saw II] I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU!! YOU FUCKING BITCH!!!
  • I don't want to play anymore.
  • Fuck you. [Before he attempts to commit suicide by jumping off the block]
  • I wanna... I wanna stop playing. Why don't you fucking kill me?
  • Who?! Who's coming through the door?!
  • Release me!
  • Don't open the door!

Others

  • Dr. Heffner: [First lines of the movie] Subject's name is John Kramer. 52 year-old male, caucasion. He's seen better days.
  • Fisk: Looks like another doctor went missing at the hospital.
  • Jeff Reinhart: [Last words] Where is my daughter, you mother?!--[Strahm shoots him twice]
  • Tracy: [To Rigg] What you can't do is save everyone.
  • Morgan: I did it! I won!
  • Jill Tuck: John's life defies chronology and linear description.

Dialogue

[During Jigsaw's autopsy, a wax-covered tape is found in his stomach]
Dr. Heffner: What the hell? Get homicide here. Now.
[Det. Hoffman arrives]
Hoffman: Where is it?
Dr. Heffner: It was in his stomach.
[A doctor shows him the tape in wax]
Hoffman: Cut it out.
[Flashback]
[John pours wax on a tape, then swallows it]
[Present]
[Hoffman takes out the recording tape, the places the wax tape into a tape player]
Autopsy Tape: Are you there, Detective? If so, you are probably the last man standing. Now, perhaps you will succeed where the others have failed. You think you will walk away untested? I promise that my work will continue. You think it's over just because I'm dead? It's not over. The games have just begun.

[Hoffman, Rigg and other police officers have discoverd Detective Kerry's corpse. Hoffman confronts Rigg after he carelessly ran through an unsecured door.]
Hoffman: Are you trying to get yourself killed? You know never to go through an unsecure door. Ever.
Rigg: I thought she was still alive. I thought I could save her. Did you ever think that we would end up here when you first started?
Hoffman: No. I didn't see it happening like this. Why the hell do we still do it?
Rigg: It's in our nature to save them. It's what we do.
Hoffman: Right. [Reading off the wall behind Rigg] "Cherish your life."
Rigg: What?
Hoffman: The fucking motto. We're supposed to cherish our lives.
Rigg: Well, how the hell are we supposed to do that when this is our lives?
Hoffman: We chose this. Go home.
Man: [Over radio] Hoffman, there are two agents here to see you.
Hoffman: Copy.

Lindsey Perez: Detective Hoffman?
Hoffman: Yes.
Lindsey Perez: I'm special agent Lindsey Perez. This is special agent Peter Strahm.
Hoffman: How can I help the FBI?
Lindsey Perez: We're here about Detective Kerry. She was our liason.
Peter Strahm: "Open the door and you will find me."
Hoffman: What? [Strahm tosses him a key] What's this?
Peter Strahm: The key that came from our last message from Detective Kerry. "Open the door and you will find me" mean anything to you?
Hoffman: No.
[Rigg walks by and leaves]
Peter Strahm: Where's the body?

Fisk: The crime scene photographer's flash picked up this bullet casing. It was lodged between the body and the device.
Hoffman: Run it for prints.
[Strahm and Perez enter]
Peter Strahm: [To the crime scene photographer] Give us the room for a minute, would you? Thanks. [She leaves]
Lindsey Perez: [Examining the lock to the Ribcage Device] The lock was open. She couldn't get out.
Hoffman: It was constructed for her exectution. Betrayed the rules.
Lindsey Perez: Not a Jigsaw trap then.
Hoffman: No. Amanda Young, the accomplice--
Peter Strahm: This wasn't done by Amanda Young.
Hoffman: Excuse me?
Peter Strahm: Detective Kerry weighed aproximately 130 lbs. Amanda Young's arrest report has her at 107. She couldn't get her up there alone.
Hoffman: John Kramer was--
Peter Strahm: A bedridden cancer patient? He's brains, not brawn.
Hoffman: He was also an engineer. He could have rigged pulleys--
Strahm: Or someone else could have helped him.
Hoffman: Special agent, if you're here for any other reason than just to assist...
Peter Strahm: We're here to help find who your department couldn't, detective: the one helping Jigsaw and Amanda Young.

[Rigg is watching a tape of Hoffman interrogating Jill Tuck]
Hoffman: [On tape] We found a harlequin doll in your possession. What's that about?
Jill Tuck: It's a toy. Kids play with toys. That's all it is.
Hoffman: How about the tricycle?
Jill Tuck: The tricycle is from John's youth.
Hoffman: A grown man has his tricycle his whole life?
Jill Tuck: I'm sure you've kept things that were important to you.
Hoffman: Look, Ms. Tuck, is there any reason we should be concerned for your safety?
Jill Tuck: Perhaps you should be more concerned for yourself.
Hoffman: Why don't you tell me everything you know about John? And let's start at the beginning.
Jill Tuck: John's life defies chronology and linear description.
Hoffman: So, why don't start at the end and just work our way backwards?
Art Blank: I represent Ms. Tuck.
[Hoffman pauses the video]
Rigg: She knows something.
Hoffman: I thought you were going home. You have vacation time, right? Take it. Finish the remodeling, spend some time with Tracy.
Rigg: She understands.
Hoffman: Then don't take her for granted.
Rigg: Eric is still out there, man.
Hoffman: Eric's been missing for six months. Kerry was gone for four days. I can only be as optimistic as the facts allow.
Rigg: Yeah, well I'm in it till I find him.
Hoffman: Finding his body is not going to vindicate us.
Rigg: Finding him alive will.
Hoffman: It's time to let go. I want you to go home. I'll call you later to make sure everything is okay.
[Rigg leaves]
Linsdey Perez: Who's he?
Hoffman: Lieutenant Rigg, our SWAT commander.
Peter Strahm: What's his problem?
Hoffman: Everyone around him keeps dying.

Rigg: [Picks up a note] What's it say?
Tracy: It says, "I tried calling you four times." It says, "Dinner is in the fridge." And, at the bottom, it says, "I love you." I need to help my mom for a few days. Just... come with me, okay? Now.
Rigg: I can't.
Tracy: You can, but you won't. What you can't do, is save everyone. [Kisses him and leaves]
Rigg: Tracy. Tracy, please, listen to me.
[She ignores him and shuts the door]

Lindsey Perez: [Reading a newspaper] John Kramer owned a company called The Urban Renewal Group. No irony in that, huh?
Peter Strahm: What was Rigg watching?
Lindsey Perez: Jill Tuck's interrogation. She was Jigsaw's ex. It's old.
Peter Strahm: Why is a SWAT guy watching that?
Lindsey Perez: Strahm, I really think we should tell Hoffman what Detective Kerry said in her last message.
Peter Strahm: She said two officers might be in danger, but until we know who, we're not causing a panic.
Lindsey Perez: If Detective Hoffman or anyone else in this precinct is in danger, I think they should know it.
Peter Strahm: Not your call.
Hoffman: [enters] Making any progress?
Lindsey Perez: We're fine, thanks.
Fisk: [Whispers, to Hoffman] Hey, boss. Looks like another doctor went missing from the hospital. They think maybe it's--
Hoffman: Thanks. I'll check it out. [To Strahm and Perez] If you need any help, call my cell. Coffee machine's around the corner.
Lindsey Perez: [Looking at the teddy bear Hoffman is holding] A boy or a girl?
Hoffman: A girl.
Lindsey Perez: I didn't know you were married.
Hoffman: I'm not. It's a short story, believe me.

[Rigg finds Brenda in his house, wearing a pig mask and sitting in large chair-device]
Rigg: Take off the mask, put your hands in the air.
Brenda: I can't!
[Rigg sees Brenda is chained to the chair. A tape starts.]
Tape: Officer Rigg, your first test. The person in front of you is in desperate need of help. But it is not your job to save them. You view this person as a victim, but if you were to SEE WHAT I SEE, beneath the mask lies a criminal, undeserving of the life she leads.
Brenda: Get me out!
Tape: Your obsession tells you to save the victim. I tell you to walk away. The choice is yours.
[Rigg removes the gag from Brenda's mouth]
Brenda: Are you a cop?
Rigg: What?
Brenda: ARE YOU A COP?!
Rigg: Yeah, I'm a cop.
[Rigg pulls off the pig mask, starting the device]
Brenda: What is that? What did you do?
[The device begins pulling her hair through a small hole]
Brenda: They're in the gears.
Rigg: What's in the gears?
Brenda: The combination. Get me out.

Fisk: Yeah?
Woman: We pulled the print off that casing. We've got a match. [Hands him a file]
Fisk: [Examines the file] Jesus. Did you check this?
Woman: I did. Twice.

[Fisk enters and shows the prints to Strahm and Perez]
Fisk: Hey, the prints just came in. They're from officer Rigg.
Officer: Fisk.
Fisk: Not now.
Officer: We just got a call of shots fired from 23 Park Place.
Fisk: That's Rigg's apartment.

[Strahm, Perez and other police officers have discovered Brenda's corpse in Rigg's apartment]
Peter Strahm: It's started.
Officer: An APB has been issued for Rigg. Everybody's looking.
Peter Strahm: He has a wife. Where is she?
Officer: We haven't located her yet.
Lindsey Perez: [holding a flashlight over some of the photos] Strahm. [Peter comes over] Two detectives. You see this?
Peter Strahm: [Sees a picture of Hoffman] Hoffman. You have a 20 on him?
Pete: Not yet. [To Fisk] Hoffman.
Fisk: Calling.
Lindsey Perez: How do you explain Detective Matthews?
Peter Strahm: He's alive.
Lindsey Perez: Six months. Jigsaw's never kept anyone that long.
Peter Strahm: No one but Amanda Young.
Lindsey Perez: You think he's been fixed?
Peter Strahm: Why these six?
Lindsey Perez: Hoffman's a decorated lieutenant. He doesn't fit the profile.
Peter Strahm: That's what you see... but what does he see? [Gestures to the SEE WHAT I SEE on the wall]
Lindsey Perez: Rigg trying to save his two friends?
Peter Strahm: Maybe. You got names and locations on any of these people?
Pete: Working it.
Lindsey Perez: This is overkill. It's a setup to announce Rigg is the accomplice.
Peter Strahm: Or a setup for his alibi. Everyone around him keeps dying. Where is he to tell us he's innocent? Or what the hell these photos are doing in his apartment? Look there.
[Strahm takes a blacklight and shines it one a wall to show words in fluorescent paint]
Lindsey Perez: [Reading off the wall] "Four walls build a home?"
Peter Strahm: What does he want us to see on these walls?
Lindsey Perez: The victims?
Peter Strahm: [Takes two photos] One of these photos doesn't belong. [Takes off more pictures] This is who we're looking for. Let's talk to her.

Lindsey Perez: Ms. Tuck. I'm special agent Perez. This is special agent Strahm. I'd like to apologize for pulling you out of your place of work.
Jill Tuck: What more do you think I can offer you? My 100 hours of interrogation tapes and the volumes of evidence taken from my house weren't enough for you understand John?
Lindsey Perez: Actually, it's not John we want to talk about, Ms. Tuck. It's you.
Jill Tuck: Me? Why do you want to talk about me? This isn't about me. So stop wasting both of our time and get to the real reason why you've brought me here.
[Perez leaves]

Peter Strahm: Okay, "Four walls build a home." Care to shed any light on that?
Jill Tuck: Light on what?
Peter Strahm: On what your photos are doing at the crime scene. "Four walls build a home" ring any bells? "Cherish your life?"
[Flashback]
John Kramer: Cherish your life is the concept that this whole clinic was built on. Cherish your life. Your life.
[Present]
Jill Tuck: That's his motto.
Peter Strahm: No, it's your motto. Of the clinic you run.
[Flashback]
Cecil Adams: Fuck, man! I'VE BEEN HERE FOR THREE FUCKIN' HOURS!!!
Michael: SHUT THE FUCK UP!!
Cecil: You shut up!
Gus: Are you out of your fuckin' mind?! [Punches Cecil]
[A massive fight ensues]
Jill Tuck: Cecil! Stop it! Gus! Knock it off now! Please!
[Later...]
John: [After Cecil takes out a switchblade] You don't want to do that.
Cecil: The fuck's your problem?
John: You're my problem. And you're becoming everybody else's, too.
[Present]
Peter Strahm: How do you feel about husband who take a motto from your drug clinic, designed to help people, and twists it into some manic torture mantra?
Jill Tuck: That part of John has nothing to do with me.
Peter Strahm: Look, Ms. Tuck. I just left a room with more blood on the walls than paint. Two officers are dead and there's a growing pile of bodies in their wake. And every detail we unearth about your Hall of Fame psychopath husband...
Jill Tuck: Ex.
Peter Strahm: ... points to you as a possible accomplice. I am just curious as to why. You know, there's a lot of people out there, looking for answers, wanting to place the blame on someone. That person is you. But you know what the best part is? I don't have to convince everybody. Just twelve people.

Ivan: Why are you doing this? Why? [Rigg tosses him his mugshot] This was- this was a mistake. It happened a long time ago. And I paid for this. Just-just-just let me go, okay? I won't say anything.
Rigg: [Points his gun at a door that says FEEL WHAT I FEEL] What's behind that door? [Reads a card from his apartment, and the keys that came with it] "One saves a life. One takes it away." [Throws him a key] Try that on the door. Try that.
[Ivan unlocks the door and opens it, then tries to run out]
Ivan: Oh, no no no.
Rigg: Get back! Get back! Get back. Let's go. Go.
[Rigg shoves Ivan through the door. The next room has pictures of beaten women hanging from the ceiling. The bed has four devices with shackles on each corner of it.]
Rigg: [Sees a TV playing a video of Eric and Hoffman] Eric. Jesus.
Ivan: Help! Help me! [Tries to open a door]
Rigg: Get away from there! [Shoves him to the floor] What do you know about the guy on the TV? What do you know about Eric Matthews?
Ivan: I don't know who that is.
Rigg: What the fuck is this?
Ivan: I don't know. What are you gonna do to me?
[Rigg plays a tape]
Tape: If you are playing this tape, then your are one step closer to understanding how to save a life. As an officer of the law, you find yourself torn.
Ivan: Who is that--
Rigg: Shut up.
Tape: Is the man before you a victim or a perpetrator of violence?
Rigg: [Realizing Ivan has raped and murdered the women] You sick fuck.
Tape: His salvation is out of your hands. It is your choice, if you wish, to put it into his own. Once this lesson is learned, you will find yourself one step closer to truly saving Eric Matthews. Without you, this man's game cannot begin. Force him into position to face his demons and let him make the decision.
[A video starts, showing Ivan raping a woman]
Ivan: [On tape] Shh. Don't wake up our neighbors.
Rigg: Fuck. This what you do with your spare time?
Ivan: No.
Ivan: [Over tape] Take it all, you little girl. Be a good little whore.
Rigg: Get on the fucking bed. Get on the bed! Move! [Ivan does so] Strap yourself in.
Ivan: Wha--
Rigg: Strap yourself in!
Ivan: Please don't make me do this. [Begins shackling himself] I know. I know I was wrong. I know.
Rigg: Hurry up! Hurry up! Put your fucking hands up. [Shoves a picture in Ivan's face]
Ivan: I don't know. I don't know. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. [Rigg shoves his head into a vice, locking him in it] Listen, I'm really sorry.
[Rigg picks up a card that reads HAND HIM THE TOOLS THAT WILL SAVE HIS LIFE]
Ivan: What does that say? What does that say? [Rigg pulls two trigger devices] What is that?!
Rigg: [Hands him the triggers] Take them.
Ivan: Why?
[Rigg starts the tape]
Tape: Hello, Ivan. As a voyeur, you've kept photos of those you have victimized.
Ivan: Let me go!
Tape: Can you see the pain you have brought them? You have torn apart their lives. You have used your body as an instrument of abuse.
Ivan: No!
Tape: Now I give you the chance to decide what is more important...
Ivan: I'm sorry!
Tape: Your eyes, which have led you blindly astray...
Ivan: You fucking perverts!
Tape: ... or your body, which has caused those around you endless suffering. You have been handed the tools which can save your life. Decide quickly, though. In 60 seconds, the choice will be made for you.
[Rigg leaves. After a few seconds, Ivan presses the right trigger, causing a small blade to pierce his right eye.]
Ivan: [As the timer comes closer to an end] I can do it. One more! I can do it!
[The timer ends. The devices fire, brutally dismembering Ivan]

Rigg: [Reading off a card] "Become the teacher and save a life."
[Flashback]
Rigg: [In a school, to a young girl] You're going to have to tell me how you got those bruises on your hand and your neck. Was this an accident or did someone do this to you on purpose? You can stop it from happening if you tell me the truth.
Hoffman: [exits the principal's office, allowing Morgan out] Take a seat, please.
Jane: I want to go home now.
Rigg: [To Hoffman] The son of a bitch is lying. He's done this before. She's allowing it.
Hoffman: The child's story doesn't corroborate. What can I do? [To Jane] Jane, I can't let you go home right now, okay? Go back to class, honey.
Rex: I told you, Officers, sometimes these kids, they just get out of control. [Pats Rigg on the shoulder]
Rigg: Get your hands off me!
Rex: Hey, take it easy.
[Rigg proceeds to brutally attack him]
Hoffman: Rigg! Rigg! [Restrains him] No. Get out! Get out now!
Rex: You just made the biggest mistake of your life! [To Hoffman] You hear me?! I will take him for everything he's got, that fucking cocksucker.
[Flashback ends]

Peter Strahm: That's, uh, sweet, Ms. Tuck, but if you love the guy so much, why leave him?
Jill Tuck: He left me long before I left him.
Peter Strahm: Okay, people break up. Relationships end. It's called life. I mean, he started massacring people!
Jill Tuck: Gideon meant everything to him.
Peter Strahm: Gideon? I'm sorry, who?
Jill Tuck: Do you know anything about the Chinese zodiac?
Peter Strahm: Aw, Jill! No. No!
Jill Tuck: I didn't just get pregnant. It was carefully planned. Everything with John was.

[Flashback]
Addison: Hey, honey. You want some company?
John: What are you doing? You know what this building is? It's a health clinic. You're a beautiful girl. Go home.

[While Jill is leaving the clinic]
Cecil: [Slams the window of a door] My jacket! I forgot my jacket. I forgot my jacket.
Jill Tuck: Cecil!
Cecil: Oh, please please, Jill.
Jill Tuck: No.
Cecil: It's right there. Look! It's right there! [Jumps up and down like a child] Please please! Come on! [Jill goes to get it] Thank you.
[Jill gets Cecil's jacket and hands it to him. He responds by shoving her against a wall a knife-point.]
Cecil: Listen to me. I don't want to hurt you, all right? You're gonna open up that fucking door. Open that fucking door! Open it! Open it. [Jill accidetnally drops the keys] Fuck! [Grabs them] What fucking key? What key?!
Jill Tuck: That one.
Cecil: Fuck! [Goes in] Fucking stay there.
[After a few moments...]
Jill Tuck: [Approaching the door] Cecil?
[Cecil barges through the door, slamming her against a wall, causing her miscarriage]
Cecil: Don't cry. No, no, hey, you're gonna be okay.
[Cecil runs out, catching John's attention]

John: [Carrying Jill into a hospital] I need some help here!
Deborah: Orderly! [Helps Jill onto a gurney] How far along is she?
John: Seven months.

Jill Tuck: All I wanted to do was help them.
John: You can't help them. They have to help themselves.

[Present]
Peter Strahm: Okay, let's review: Girl loves boy, boy loves girl, boy gets girl pregnant, girl loses baby, boy turns into a serial killer. Jill, I'm not buying it.
Fisk: [Enters] You're gonna want to take a look at this.
Peter Strahm: All right, she doesn't leave!

Peter Strahm: He's been identified as Ivan Landsness. Aquitted of rape three times. Had to gouge out his own eyes in order to release himself.
Lindsey Perez: How does something like this get into a motel room undetected?
Peter Strahm: Piece by piece.
Pete: The room's been rented for the past six days to a lawyer named Art Blank. Get this: he went missing two weeks ago.
Peter Strahm: Run his name, get his addresses. Two of the five people on Rigg's apartment walls are dead. Every partner he's ever worked with--dead.
Lindsey Perez: Rigg didn't kill Ivan. Ivan made his own choice. Isn't that the whole Jigsaw mantra?
Peter Strahm: This wasn't about Ivan. It wasn't his test. [Points to the FEEL WHAT I FEEL on the door] It was about Rigg. [Takes two photos] Look at these photos. Tell me how you feel. Look at these women and tell me how you feel.
Lindsey Perez: Angry. Enraged.
Peter Strahm: Exactly. The pimp, the rapist-- Jigsaw wanted Rigg to see what he sees. He wants him to feel what he feels. This wasn't about Rigg saving his friends. He's being recruited.
Pete: Art Blank's got a whole bunch of properties. Last known address is a couple blocks from here.

[Strahm and Perez discover folders addressed to them. Strahm realizes they are being filmed and rips the camera off a wall.]
Lindsey Perez: What does this mean?
Peter Strahm: We're the two Jigsaw targets.

[In the JUDGE AS I JUDGE test]
Eric Matthews: Fuck you.
[Eric jumps off the ice block to hang himself, causing Hoffman's side of the scale to tip over]
Art: Hey. Hey! [Shoves Eric back onto the block] Hey, asshole. You jump off that block, you electrocute him. [Points a revolver at Hoffman] If that ice had melted more, he'd be fried. You understand?
Hoffman: Listen to him.
[Hoffman sees Art's face for the first time]
[Flashback]
Rex: You just made the biggest mistake of your life! Cocksucker!
Hoffman: Calm down. We'll get somebody to take a look at it, all right?
[Later]
Art Blank: My client has a broken nose and a fractured cheekbone. Administrative leave with pay is not acceptable.
Hoffman: The IA investigation is underway.
Art Blank: Into this precinct? Wow. What's that gonna get me, huh?
Hoffman: The truth.
Art Blank: Oh, I'll tell you what the truth is. The truth is, I have an eyewitness.
Hoffman: The man's wife? She stands to gain as much as he does. If there were to be a financial settlement. Which is not gonna happen because he's lying. He attacked Officer Rigg first.
Art Blank: That's according to whom?
Hoffman: Me. I saw the whole thing.
Art Blank: You want to testify before the grand jury?
Hoffman: I've already signed the IA's affidavit. The charges are being dismissed.
Art Blank: Oh, you guys are- you're good. You know, you're obviously as thick as thieves here in this precinct. But it'll come back to you. You know that, right? I mean, one day someday it will. It will come back to you.
[Present]
Art Blank: You understand?
Eric Matthews: [Under his breath] Motherfucker, you...
Art Blank: Hey, do you understand?
Eric Matthews: [Quietly] Okay. [Art walks back to the camera monitors] Motherfucker!

[Rigg discovers Rex and Morgan impaled back to back with a single rod going through the both of them. Morgan awakens, shocking him]
Morgan: I did it. I won!
Rigg: What the hell did you do?
Morgan: I...
[Flashback]
[Morgan awakens with several rods going through her and Rex]
Morgan: What's happening?! [Sees a tape player tied to her hand and plays it]
Tape: The human body is a fascinating organism. It can withstand the most brutal injury, and yet repair itself miraculously. But you know this all too well. [Rex awakens] How many broken bones have you suffered at the hands of your husband? How many flesh wounds have you endured?
Rex: Help!
Tape: With time, the bruises have healed, but your pain has not. Today, I empower you to take control over your life. Can you disconnect from the one thing that has brought you and others so much pain? With time, your wounds will heal. [Rex sees a blackboard that reads YOUR LIFE IS IN HER HANDS] His, however, will not. Remove the ties that bind...
Rex: Get me out of here!
Tape: ... or bleed to death from your inactivity. The choice is yours.
Morgan: Okay. Okay, okay! Here we go! [Grabs a rod] I'm... sorry.
[She begins to pull the rod out of her and Rex]
Rex: Morgan? Morgan, what the fuck are you doing?!
[Morgan finishes with the first rod, then proceeds to pull one going through her collarbone and Rex's jugular vein]
[Present]
Morgan: [Trying to pull out the final rod] Help me. Please help me. I can't do this. [Grabs Rigg as he gets closer] Please help me!
Rigg: [Backs away] Calm down.
Morgan: No, don't go! Don't go! Don't go! Wait for me! Please get me out. Please get me out. [Rigg walks behind a table and finds a tape] Don't. Don't go. Don't leave me here. Help me down. [Rigg plays the tape]
Tape: Hello, Officer Rigg. What have you learned thus far? Experience is a harsh teacher. First comes the test. Second comes the lesson. If you are to SAVE AS I SAVE, then you will see that the person before you is but a student. So I ask you, Officer Rigg: has the pupil learned her lesson? Has she been taught the error of her ways? Does she now view the world differently?
Morgan: Please help.
Tape: Officer Rigg, the key to this person's freedom lies in the palm of your hand. But only after she has done her own part can you play your role in her salvation. Once judgement has been made, though, the key to finding your next destination lies just off the map.
Rigg: Who did this to you?
Morgan: I don't know.
Rigg: Stand still. I'm gonna try to take this out.
[Rigg removes the final spike]
Morgan: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Rigg: Fuck. [Sees a picture of the cardivascular system] That's it. "Just off the map." Just off the map. [Goes behind the map, and looks in a small box, finding a picture Tracy] Tracy. [Reads a message off the back of the photo] "Go home." [To Morgan] Where is she?
Morgan: I'm so cold. Please. I want to live.
[Rigg realizes that the Gideon Meat Factory is the final destination]
Rigg: [Puts his jacket on Morgan] Here. [Gives her a key] You have to save yourself.
Morgan: [As Rigg leaves] Don't leave me! Please don't leave me! Help me, please don't leave!
[Rigg pulls a fire alarm]

Eric Matthews: I wanna... I wanna stop playing. Why don't you fucking kill me?
Art: No.
Hoffman: Shut up!
Eric Matthews: I don't want to play anymore.

[At Rigg's SAVE AS I SAVE test]
Lindsey Perez: "Save as I Save." So what did he do, free her and let him die?
Peter Strahm: This guy didn't have a chance. He's got rods going through every major artery in his body. [Reads the blackboard] "Your life is in her hands." Rigg didn't kill this guy. His wife did.
Lindsey Perez: She identified Officer Rigg, said he saved her.
Peter Strahm: Saved?
Lindsey Perez: Yeah.
Peter Strahm: She passed Rigg's judgment, got fixed and got her freedom back. [Perez answers her cell phone] Second address? [Perez gives a no gesture.]
Lindsey Perez: [To Peter] I just found out something interesting about the three people in the traps. They were all represented by a lawyer named Art Blank.
Peter Strahm: He got them all off?
Lindsey Perez: Yeah. But wait. It gets better. He's also Jill Tuck's lawyer.
[A forensics man accidentally sets off a harpoon gun]
Peter Strahm: [Pulls Perez out of the way] Look out!
[The harpoon gun fires and kills a forensic photographer]
Peter Strahm: The lair-- where's the lair?
Lindsey Perez: Raided. It doesn't exist.
Peter Strahm: Jigsaw wanted us to find that place. Where's the new game being played? We find that place, we find Rigg.
Lindsey Perez: We got a second address. There's a co-owner.
Peter Strahm: Who?
Lindsey Perez: Jill Tuck.
Peter Strahm: Jill Tuck? Where's the building?
Lindsey Perez: Here. This building.

[Strahm and Perez find Billy sitting in the principal's office, surrounded by candles and wearing a tape player. Perez plays the tape.]
Tape: Hello, Agent Perez. And welcome to the world that you have long studied. Your partner, Agent Strahm, will soon take the life of an innocent man. Heed my warning, Agent Perez: Your next move is critical. [Whispers] Open the door...
Lindsey Perez: What is that?
[Perez leans in to hear a ticking sound. The Billy puppet's head explodes, showering her face and neck with shrapnel.]

[In the JUDGE AS I JUDGE test, Eric has apparently hanged to death]
Hoffman: Hey! Hey you. Come here. Look!
Art Blank: [Runs over] Hey. Hey.
Hoffman: Come on!
Art Blank: Hey, hey.
[Eric springs to life and kicks him, once again causing the scale to tip over]
Eric Matthews: Fuck!
Art Blank: [Trying to push Eric back onto the block] Stop!
Eric Matthews: Son of a bitch!
Art Blank: Fuck! Stop! Fuck! Hey! [Gets him back on the block] Listen to me. I'm not the one you gotta worry about. You understand me? I'm not the one you gotta worry about. [Walks back; under his breath] Asshole. As a matter of fact, I recommend you stay alive... [Reads a note]... until the fucking clock counts down. [Grabs his revolver] Here's the good news: If this other guy passes his test, the three of us can go free. Hey, look at me. Look at me. If you don't stay on the block, your partner get electrocuted. Now for my final task. [Hands Eric the revolver and a bullet] Live or die. You make the choice.

[Strahm slams a paper on the interrogation table]
Peter Strahm: You see that, Jill? That's a Federal fucking Indictment. It's got your name on it. You wanna put someone else's name on it, you start talking to me. Okay? What's with the doll? What's with the tricycle? Who were John's business associates before he went insane?
Jill Tuck: He wasn't the associate type.
Peter Strahm: Where the hell is Art Blank?! Obstruction of Justice. Aiding and Abetting. Conspirator to Murder. [Shouts] TALK TO ME!! In fifteen minutes, more people are gonna die, Jill. Police Officers. He's a business partner. He's a friend. He is the accomplice we have been looking for, and he is your fucking LAWYER! [Knocks the table over] You see this? [Points to the blood on his shirt] This is my partner's blood. She's fighting for her life right now, because of your lunatic husband. What happened between Jigsaw and Art Blank?
[Flashback]
Jill Tuck: John? John.
Art Blank: Guess he's not here, either. What the fuck is this place, Jill? [Looks at a rather grotesque drawing]
Jill Tuck: [Sees John sitting in a corner] Don't be mad.
Art Blank: What?
[Art turns around, accidentally knocking over a harlequin doll strongly resembling Billy]
Art Blank: [Also sees John] Hey, you all right? You weren't returning any of my calls, buddy. Listen, John, I... I'm sorry. I understand. What happened was a tragedy. But I gotta tell you... listen, John, I gotta tell you. Those buildings we're working on--
John: You take 'em. You give my share to Jill.
Art Blank: That's not the way it works, John. You see, we're partners. Your designs will make those buildings special. We've got 40 families ready to move in. Forty families, John. Low-income families. You can't just walk away. You're their savior, John.
John: Get the fuck out of here.
Art Blank: Who're you talkin' to like that? It's me, John.
John: Did you hear what I said?
Art Blank: Oh, I heard you, John.
John: Get the fuck... you heard me.
Art Blank: Okay, John. You take good care of yourself. Give me a call when you're feeling better.
[Art and Jill leave. John picks up the doll that Art knocked over and puts it back on the table]
[Present]
Jill Tuck: He blamed me. I don't think he could ever forgive me. In his mind, our time was over. He was diagnosed with cancer soon after that.
Peter Strahm: Did you try to contact him again?
Jill Tuck: I tried. But a new person crawled out of the wreckage. Someone else survived.
[Flashback]
[Jill enters the Gideon Factory, where she discovers photographs of Cecil, drawings, and something underneath a tarp]
John: I asked you not to come here.
Jill Tuck: I need to talk to you. John, John. [Shows him a newspaper] What is this? Why do you have Cecil's picture? What have you done to him?
John: I taught him not... to take life for granted.
[As John listens to a tape]
Tape: Your life is a lie. Now comes your moment of truth. As a drug user and a hustler, you've played roulette with other people's lives. Today, you play with your own.
[Cut to John kidnapping Cecil in a Chinese Year of the Pig fair. Cecil later awakens restrained to a chair by several blades jutting into his wrists.]
Cecil: Hey, it's you. You did this to me.
John: No. You did this to yourself. Your greed took the life of an innocent child.
Cecil: Could you give me time to explain, please?
John: I can't give you time. No one can. Time's an illusion.
Cecil: Look. Look. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
John: I forgive you, Cecil. I do. Addiction has ruined your life.
Cecil: I'm bleeding, man. Please just let me go.
John: I could let you go. That wouldn't serve you. I'll tell you what I will do, though. I'll give you a tool to reclaim your life, to discard the vices that have so corrupted your soul.
Cecil: I don't have a fucking soul.
John: Maybe you will in the next life, Cecil. You see, things aren't sequential. Good doesn't lead to good, nor bad to bad. People who steal, don't get caught, live the good life. Others lie, cheat and get elected. Some people stop to help a stranded motorist and get taken out by a speeding semi. There's no accounting for it. How you play the cards your dealt--that's all that matters. Look at me. Do you understand what I'm saying to you?
Cecil: Oh. [Nods] Yeah. I understand. You're fuckin' nuts!
[John sets a large helmet with 4 knives on both sides in front of Cecil]
Cecil: Whoa! What the fuck is that?!
John: It's the tool. The tool that's going to save your life. I want to play a game. [Places the apparatus on the chair] Your life is a lie, Cecil. Now comes your moment of truth. As a drug addict and a thief, you've preyed on the kindness of others to fuel your addiction. Today, we're bringing the ugliness inside you out into the open. Now, in order for you to stay alive, we have to match your face with the ugliness of your soul. Just lean forward, into the knives, with your face. Press hard enough and you'll release the arm and the leg restraints that bind you.
Cecil: HELP!!!
John: Press hard, though, and you'll be free.
Cecil: You-you sick fuck! Fuck you!
John:' Or you can sit idly and bleed out on the floor. Live or die, Cecil. Make your choice.
Cecil: Fuck you! You sick fuck! HELP!
[After a few tense seconds of hesitation, Cecil begins forcing his face through the knives. The chair suddenly collapses from under him.]
Cecil: [Laughing] Oh, you're dead. Fuckin' dead! Fuckin' dead!
[Cecil charges John. John side-steps as Cecil slips in his own blood into a pit of razor wire. John observes him as he wildly thrashes about and picks up a sketch pad]

Jill Tuck: What's happened to you?
John: What's happened to me? [Picks up a crowbar] What's happened to me?! [Smashes a small antique clock with the crowbar] Now you don't come back. You do it for yourself if you can't do it for me.
Jill Tuck: I lost him, too.
[John removes the tarp from the object, revealing a large Coffin full of broken glass [1]]

[Present]
[Strahm leaves the interrogation room]
Peter Strahm: [Reads off a newspaper article] "Four Walls Build A Home?"
[Strahm heads back in]
Peter Strahm: Your son was named after John's first building, right?
Jill Tuck: Yes.
Peter Strahm: Where is it? [Hits the wall next to her] WHERE IS IT?! [2] [Calmly] Where is it?

[In the final test room, Art observes that two large ice blocks are aimed at Eric's and held up by the closed door]
Art Blank: Fuck. Oh, fuck. You'd better hope he doesn't come through that door.
Eric Matthews: Who?! Who's coming through the door?! Who is it?!

[Strahm follows Jeff into Jigsaw's lair]
Amanda: Fix me, you motherfucker! I'm standing right here!
John: Your time's running out. Now you think about what you are doing. You think about what you promised me. You think about tomorrow.
Jeff: Lynn? [Amanda shoots her in the back, and she falls in his arms] Lynn! Lynn.
[Strahm hears Jeff shooting Amanda]

[Art picks up a device as the timer begins the final 1:00 countdown]
Eric Matthews: What is that?
Art Blank: This will release us when the timer's up.
[The timer gets to 0:40]
Eric Matthews: Release me!
Hoffman: Fuck.

[Strahm enters Jigsaw's Lair]
John:... I've cause you and your wife tonight? Which is it gonna be, Jeff? Live or die, Jeff. Make our choice.
Jeff: I forgive you.
[A power saw is heard in the room]
Lynn: Jeff. Jeff!
[Strahm is outside the door when it closes]

[Rigg reaches the final room]
Rigg: Eric!
Eric Matthews: Don't open the door!
Rigg: What the fuck? Shit.
[With 0:01 second remaining, Rigg runs through the door, in the process being shot by Eric. He falls through the door, releasing the ice blocks and smashing Eric's head between them while shooting Art. The scale tips on Hoffman's side and electrocutes him to death.]

[Strahm enters the Sick Room and finds Jeff there, holding a gun, having just killed Jigsaw]
Peter Strahm: Let me see your fucking hands.
Jeff: WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER, YOU MOTHER--
[Jeff aims his gun at Strahm, who shoots him twice in the chest]
Jeff: ...fuck... [Falls dead]

Art Blank: Aw, you stupid motherfucker. What did you do?
Rigg: I had more time! I STILL HAD FUCKING TIME!
Art Blank: Why did you open that door--?
Rigg: You fucking did this!
Art Blank: No, you idiot!
Rigg: You fucking did this!
Art Blank: No! Jigsaw's testing you, you FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT! [Reaches into his bag]
Rigg: [Pulls out his gun] Put your fucking hands where I can see them! PUT YOUR FUCKING HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM!
Art Blank: JIGSAW'S FUCKING TESTING YOU! [Pulls out a tape recorder]
Rigg: DON'T FUCKING MOVE!
[Rigg mistakes the tape player for a weapon and shoots Art in the head. Art starts the tape and drops it before dying.]
Tape: Hello, officer Rigg. If you are hearing this, then you have reached detective Matthews and detective Hoffman in under nintey minutes, resulting in their deaths. The rules were clear. You were warned.
[Flashback]
Rigg: It's Kerry!
Hoffman: Do not go through that door! You know never to go through an unsecure door. Ever.
Tape: [Previous] Tonight, you face your obsession.
Tracy: What you can't do is save everyone.
Tape: [Previous] Will you learn how to let go?
Rigg: Eric is still out there, man.
Hoffman: It's time to let go.
Tape: [Previous] Detective Matthews has but ninety minutes.
Art Blank: I recommend you stay alive until the fucking clock counts down.
[Present]
Tape: They had to save themselves. Their salvation was out of your hands. Time was on your side, but your obsession wouldn't let you wait. Instead of saving detective Matthews, you cost him his life. You failed your final test.
[Rigg crawls onto a table while Hoffman releases himself from the chair, then stands over Rigg]
[Flashback]
Rigg: [About Troy's test] What I don't understand is how the hell could Jigsaw do all this. He was damn near on his deathbed last time we saw him.
Kerry: I'm not so sure he did.
[Hoffman pockets one of the rings]
Peter Strahm: This wasn't done by Amanda Young.
Hoffman: Excuse me?
Peter Strahm: She couldn't get her up there alone.
Hoffman: John Kramer was--
Peter Strahm: He's brains, not brawn. We're here to help find the person helping Jigsaw and Amanda Young.
[Hoffman writes Amanda's letter]
Fisk: Looks like another doctor went missing from the hospital.
Hoffman: [To Rigg] You go home. We chose this.
[Present]
[Hoffman unplugs Art's camera monitors, and walks around Rigg]
Hoffman: Game over.
[Hoffman leaves Rigg to die and enters the lair from the third film. Reaching the Sick Room, Hoffman slams the door shut, locking Strahm inside, and leaves]
Autopsy Tape: [Narrating] You feel you now have control, don't you? You think you will walk away untested?
[Present]
Autopsy Tape: I promise that my work will continue. That I have ensured. By hearing this tape, some will assume that this is over. But I am still among you. You think it's over just because I am dead? It's not over. The games have just begun.
