WyNONA WILLIAMS

Daddy... always thinking. You should have been a philosopher, you know, instead of a clairvoyant.



HeNRY WILLIAMS

Oh, you know, I'm a bit of everything. I'm a philosopher, a medical doctor, a theoretical physicist. I can be anything I want, I can reach all the knowledge there is in this universe. Because I can take advantage of the mechanisms of this existence.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

Keep that crap for you devotees who wish to know if they should get out once in a while and find the perfect man. Even I wouldn't have too much trouble telling them to provoke their own circumstances, and then maybe, just maybe, they would meet the perfect man.



HenRY WILLIAMS

(Kissing his daughter.)

You don't understand anything. I've got only myself to blame, I suppose. I will teach you everything you need to know to make sense of the underlying truth of this world.

WyNONA WILLIAMS

Don't bother, I read your books and I still cannot understand the world you live in.



HenrY WILLIAMS

Yes, but my ultimate book is never written, you understand? As soon as I finish it, it needs to be rewritten. Because I learn more everyday! And then I become someone else, someone new, with a new book to write. The story of my life.


WyNONA WILLIAMS

I love you all the same, so don't worry.



HenRY WILLIAMS

Where's your mom?



WynoNA WILLIAMS

She's gone to work.



HenRY WILLIAMS

Oh yes. By the way, I had the strangest dream last night. Some killings occurred at the university and/or the hospital. I remember one name: Esteban Estevez.



WynoNA WILLIAMS

How did you know? Gosh, you ARE a psychic! Great! Now I can't have any secrets anymore!



HenRY WILLIAMS

(Panicked.)

Please tell me you're not dating that guy?

WyNONA WILLIAMS

For six weeks now! He loves your books more than he loves me, that's how we met! You don't disapprove of me, do you, dad? I'm 15 now...



HenRY WILLIAMS

Right, of course not. I can see there are still things in my life that are not perfect. I'll have to act upon it.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

You said killings?



HenRY WILLIAMS

Don't worry sweet heart, they will never take place. I'll take care of it and you won't have to worry. Just make sure you bring him over so we can meet him and become friends.



WynoNA WILLIAMS

He would love that, he's been asking to meet you since the day we met. Thank you daddy! You're so great! I thought you'd freak out completely! Now I think you should get ready for your first visitor of the day.

CuT TO:

Seventh Deja Vu. Day 3. Morning. Henry's office in his house
HenRY WILLIAMS

Welcome Mrs. Winterbottom, please sit down and tell me what brings you here today.



Mrs. winterbottom

I want to know all about my future and what I should do with my life.



HenRY WILLIAMS

Just that, hey? I'll see what I can do.


The screen splits, we can see that Henry is already seeing what is going on in the life of Mrs. Winterbottom. We also understand that he can bring up his deja vu episodes, they are no longer random.


RIGHT SCREEN (deja vu)


Mrs. Winterbottom

(On her hospital bed, ready for surgery.)

I'm I going to be OK? Please Dr. Williams, tell me the truth!

HenRY WILLIAMS

I don't want to lie to you Mrs. Winterbottom, your brain tumor is quite advanced. We'll do what we can, you're in good hands.



Mrs. WINTERBOTTOM

I know Dr. Williams, I know. Thank you! If I don't make it, thank everyone for me.



HenRY WILLIAMS

(Embarrassed because it is a lie.)

You will tell them yourself.

LEFT SCREEN (real life)


HenRY WILLIAMS (CONT'D)

You need to go to the hospital as quickly as possible. You have a brain tumor.



Mrs. WINTERBOTTOM

Are you sure? How do you know?



HenRY WILLIAMS

I can see it.



END OF SPLIT SCREEN


Mrs. WINTERBOTTOM

Will I die?



HenrY WILLIAMS

Waiting any longer would be fatal. If you go this morning, you'll be fine. Do you want to stop now?



MrS. WINTERBOTTOM

No, please. I need to know about my son.



HenRY WILLIAMS

(No split screen for this one.)

I see many timelines. In many of them he's dead, from many different ways. How did he died? I'm sorry, I mean, is he dead?

Mrs. WINTERBOTTOM

He died of a drug overdose, I've been told.



HenRY WILLIAMS

This was not the likely occurrence, I didn't see that yet. Now I can see it. Your husband was too rigid, he pushed him too much. In all realities where your son is alive, your husband is absent.



MrS. WINTERBOTTOM

There isn't much I can do now... I can't bring him back from the dead.



HenRY WILLIAMS

Yes there is. Yes you can. You need to think really hard about what I just told you, imagine that life where you left your husband to live with your son alone. And you don't know, you might just wake up one morning in this reality. You wouldn't know about the change, but I assure you it will have happened. Thinking is very powerful, it can change your life. You can imagine anything you want and, I'm telling you, if you want it enough, it will happen.



MrS. WINTERBOTTOM

But changing the past... how...



HenrY WILLIAMS

(Getting up.)

Trust me Mrs. Winterbottom. Do as I say and you'll see. Now you need to go to the hospital to get examined. It's urgent.

MrS. WINTERBOTTOM

How much do I owe you?



HenRY WILLIAMS

Nothing.


MrS. WINTERBOTTOM

(Leaving.)

Thank you Mr. Williams.

Cut TO:
eighth Deja Vu. Day 3. Morning. Henry's living room




WyNONA WILLIAMS

So, how did it go with the old woman? How much money did you get from her?



HenRY WILLIAMS

Please, a bit of respect. I just saved her life and probably the one of her son. In this timeline anyway, and a few others.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

You're sure of that, aren't you?



HenRY WILLIAMS

Well, you can accompany her to the hospital if you want a proof, she's got a brain tumor and they're just about to find out.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

Since when are you a doctor, who can even diagnose someone at a distance? You're not a faith healer, now, are you?



HenRY WILLIAMS

I guess I can be anything I set my mind to. I don't even need to be going through the nightmare of living all these realities, and that's what so perfect.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

I wouldn't mind becoming a famous actress in Hollywood... mind you.



HenRY WILLIAMS

I don't think you want it so badly.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

(Ironic.)

Why are you saying this? Oh daddy, please daddy, make me a star!

HenRY WILLIAMS

If that's what you really want to do with your life, you'll achieve it on your own. I'll be there to help you along the way but I can't just make it happen for you. It's not fair if this is not what you feel you need to do in the deepness of your heart.



WyNONA WILLIAMS

How convenient... I'll be a garbage girl then. How's that sound to you?



HenRY WILLIAMS

Sounds great! You need to learn from whatever happen in your life so you can move on to learn more. Being aware of the future gives me the chance to control my life in order to maximize what I need to learn, so I can change and evolve. This is what I have learnt. And now I'm exploiting my aptitudes to help others and myself to a better life.


Henry has another Deja vu episode. He can see the young Esteban Estevez walking beside him at the university. It makes him think…

LEFT SCREEN (real life)

HenRY WILLIAMS (CONT'D)

I'm having a vision... please don't say anything...



RIGHT SCREEN (deja vu)


HenRY WILLIAMS

You simply have no future in this university or any other.


EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

But I want to enter the Masters degree program...



HenRY WILLIAMS

(Laughing.)

There's no way this will ever happen, I'll make sure of that!

EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

What is there left for me then? As a career, I mean...



HenRY WILLIAMS

Well, there's a home hardware store close by hiring people like you... perhaps one day you'll make it as a supervisor, if you work more seriously there than you studied in your entire life.


END OF SPLIT SCREEN

HenRY WILLIAMS

My God! There are some versions of me out there that will never learn anything!



WyNONA WILLIAMS

Now you know just how I feel.



HeNRY WILLIAMS

I have to help myself...


DiSSOLVE TO:




Back to Day 1. Early Morning. Green in front of university
We are now back to day 1 where the teacher is walking slowly without any books towards his pavilion for his class of philosophy. He meets Esteban who is questioning his F on his essay. There is no more split screen here, Henry appears to know everything already.

HenRY WILLIAMS

(Walking slowly, almost like waiting for something to happen.)

What a great day this is!

EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

Hey, professor, professor!



HenRY WILLIAMS

(They sit.)

Hi Esteban, let's go and sit down on this bench.

EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

(Giving his essay to Henry to look at.)

It's not fair! I shouldn't get an F for this!

HenRY WILLIAMS

(He looks at the essay.)

Why do you believe you should get a better mark?

EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

I've read all your books, I worked very hard this time, I was really hoping to get a good mark and to eventually enter the Masters Degree program.



HENRY WILLIAMS

You're right, you have worked hard, it is much better than what you used to give me. You have read my books and other books, I can see. You might have a future after all. My friend, you should not be judged compared with the others, but from what you were and where you are now.


EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

(Giving a pen to Henry as Henry appears to be looking for one.)

Really? I was not expecting this. Here's my pen.

HenRY WILLIAMS

(Henry takes a pen, crosses the F and writes A+. He hands the paper to Esteban.)

Don't let anyone tell you that you have no future, always find a way to get there in the end and prove them wrong.

EstEBAN ESTEVEZ

I can't believe this, professor. This is a life changing event for me!



HenRY WILLIAMS

Believe it or not, this is also a life changing event for me. You'll get your PhD, even if I have to help you after class. If this is really what you want to achieve.



EstEBAN ESTEVEZ

(Very emotional.)

I feel like crying...

HenRY WILLIAMS

(Very emotional.)

Me too, it's exhilarating... Now off you go, or you'll be late for my class!

EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

(Esteban is over the moon. He starts running and then he turns around and asks:)

But what about you professor? Are you not going to be late to your own class?

HenRY WILLIAMS

(Henry smiles.)

Now I'm in full control of my life and I will never be late again, even when I'm actually really late...

CuT TO:
Conclusion. Back to Day 1. Morning. classroom

Henry gets in his class, no books this time.


HeNRY WILLIAMS

Good morning class. I just came, late as usual, to let you know that today's class is cancelled.



EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

Why?


HenRY WILLIAMS

Because I need to go home, rewrite my book, marry my assistant and have a baby!



EsTEBAN ESTEVEZ

You've decided to do all this today?



HenRY WILLIAMS

I'm going to take advantage of everything life has to offer. I'll let you know how it all turns out! Although I've already got a pretty good idea...
