BLACK MASS BLOODBATH #3
tl by danluffey
1: My mother left me three things when I did. The first was advice to go and live in New York when I turned 18.
2: The second was this box. No matter what happens, I have to keep it safe.
3: Even if it kills you? That's going a bit too far, if you ask me.
4: What's inside it, anyway?
5: I can't tell you that.
1: What was the third thing she left you?
3: I can't tell you about that either.
4: Christine... it could be very important. It might be our only way of finding Helmut!
6: We got through.
7: Oh, good.
8: I'll be right back.
2: What was the third thing?
3: The third thing...
4: That I need to stay a virgin until I'm 20 years old.
6: That sure is old-fashioned!
7: But... I don't think I can hold out any longer.
8: I'm tired of letting my mom determine my life. I'll suffocate before I turn 20!
1: I have a right to live just like other girls, right?!
2: W-well yeah, but...
3: Rosie... what do you think of me?
6: I had a really strange feeling during the fire.
7: It was the first time I ever felt it...
8: I felt like...
9: I liked you.
2: From a guy like me, who lives by crawling around Manhattan just like a cockroach,
3: you look just like an angel.
4: An untouchable angel.
5: I'm not an angel!
6: I'm just like all the other 18-year old girls out there!
2: I can even become as tough as you if I really want to!
3: Right, Rosie?!
4: Am I not good enough for you, Mr. Detective?
5: Say that I am, Rosie...
7: You are,
9: As long as you stay with me.
2: Christine, you must be tired.
3: /Rosie, that dog... he acts innocent, but look how quick to the punch he is!
4: I reserved a room at another hotel for you, so let one of my men see you home.
5: What about Rosie? Where is he going to go?
6: He and I still have some talking to do.
8: I'm not going home alone! I want to wait here until Rosie's business is done.
1: Seems like we're on the verge of uncovering some clues about Helmut's disappearance.
2: You're interested in knowing what they are, aren't you, Rosie?
3: Chris... be a good girl and go home ahead of me.
4: I'll come see you as soon as I'm done with him.
5: I'm going to stay up and wait for you, no matter how long you take!
6: So you'd better come! No matter what happens!
7: (Geez louise... gimme a break!
8: It's a promise, Rosie!
1: You sure you should be getting involved with her? I don't think you two are the best match.
2: People can change. She can change, and so can I.
3: Are you serious?
5: I thought you had something to talk to me about, chief?
1: If we had been just a little later, she would have been lined up with them.
2: You're disturbed, Ben.
3: Why did you bring me down here?
4: I don't want to see PJ like this...
5: All six of these people were connected to Helmut in some way.
6: We have records of other larger-scale accidents like these. Airplane crashes, tour buses falling off cliffs... lots of different stuff.
7: But when Helmut disappeared, they all stopped too.
8: Then, three years passed... three years and five months, to be exact.
9: And in these two days, we've found a pile of bodies.
1: What are you trying to say, Ben?
2: You get it, don't you? PJ found you three years ago...
3: Oh? Is that so?
4: Five months after Helmut disappeared, PJ found you!
6: So what?!
7: You lost your memories!
8: Who did you used to be?!
1: How should I know?!
3: I mean... come on...
4: That's ridiculous, Ben.
5: How could I...
1: Let me get your prints just in case, Rosie.
2: M-my prints?!
3: Stop it, Ben! He has blond hair! Mine is...
4: Anyone can become blond by bleaching their hair.
5: What about my face, then?! Are you saying I got plastic surgery done?!
6: That's right!
1: Funnily enough, his plastic surgeon was murdered three years and four month ago.
2: He was a famous surgeon from Hollywood.
4: Are you trying to say I'm him?
5: That I'm Helmut?
8: Heheheh... that's a good one.
9: That means I killed all six of them, doesn't it?
1: Are you saying that I could have killed PJ?!
4: Calm down. I didn't say that you did it.
5: Don't touch me!
7: Uu... uuuu...
8: Ben... I'm scared.
9: What if you take my prints, and...
1: Even if your prints match Helmut's, I know more than anyone that you weren't the real criminal.
2: Right, Rosie?
3: We can easily prove that.
5: That's not it.
6: That's not what I'm talking abou.
8: made a promise with him.
9: You have to keep it!
1: I didn't make any promise!!
SFX: CLACK CLACK
4: Chief, what happened? Should I go catch him?
5: No, I need you go to watch Christine's hotel room.
6: Rosie will surely try to get in touch with her.
1: After that, someone will need to go to PJ's office, take Rosie's fingerprints from a cup or something, and bring them back for testing.
2: Then we'll compare them with Helmut's.
3: Yes sir!
SFX: CLACK CLACK
4: /Forgive me, Rosie... I'm a cop, after all.
6: What was that he said about a promise?
1: /With PJ...
2: /and in that elevator...
3: /I survived...
4: /I wasn't even injured in the fire...
5: Who did you used to be?!
8: /She may be the one who knows the answer to this.
3: Christine's outside. She has the box with her.
4: Alright, follow her.
5: But chief...
6: Why did Rosie run out of there in such a hurry again?
7: If you had lost your memories, and all of a sudden one day someone started accusing you of being someone else, not to mention the very man you're chasing after...
8: you'd be shocked too.
9: But it's Helmut!
10: I'd be happy to know that I at least USED to be a guy like him!
1: He's a rock star, and he's filthy rich! It's a dream come true! The American dream!
2: Just shut up and drive, will you?
3: Don't you have any dreams, chief?
4: You know what I'd rather have instead of money or glory? Youth.
5: I wish I was still as stupid as you guys.
6: Yeah, that's the spirit! Eternal youth and eternal cash!
7: That's what everyone in the world wants!
8: Hahaha... I guess that's why it's so easy for the devil to prey on us.
1: Look, Ben! Look at his rosy cheeks!
2: We used to look like this, didn't we?
3: Heheh... why don't you call him Rosie, then?
1: What's wrong, Rosie? What happened?
2: Your eyes are bloodshot!
3: Come here.
4: Where are we going?
5: I'll tell you later. But I think we're being followed.
4: Your mother died three years ago, didn't she?
5: What killed her? And tell me where she died, too.
6: Why do you want to know?
7: The timing is just too perfect.
1: Why do I have to talk about that?
2: Please, Chris! It'll be a big help to me!
3: My mom...
4: was in a mental asylum... in New Jersey...
5: New Jersey?!
6: Alright! Let's go there, then!
9: Aren't we being followed?
10: So what if we are? It's only Ben.
1: Let him follow us if he wants.
2: Is this a mental asylum? This is kind of creeping me out, chief...
3: Ask for backup. Tell them to watch the rear exit. I'm going to make a call.
2: Please! I need to see Mrs. Schwartz's records!
3: But... it's so late at night...
4: Pretty please?
5: You're absolutely sure?
6: Their fingerprints didn't match up? Good, good... thanks for checking up on that for me. It was a huge help.
9: Fingerprints can be changed through plastic surgery too?!
1: Voice prints are the only way to be sure?!
2: Due to modern medical technology?!
3: That's the biggest crock of shit I've ever heard! (You son of a bitch!
5: He goes and gets me all worked up, and then what does he do?
6: Now it's back to square one, I guess...
8: /PJ... you really picked up a handful...
2: Are you really Maria Schwartz's...
4: Yes. She is my mother.
6: Alright, so be it. It has nothing to do with me!
7: All this terminology is really confusing.
8: I want to meet this Dr. Collins guy...
9: Where is he?
2: I have... a great need for money right now...
3: My son...
4: I need to save up some money to help him make bail.
5: /I see...
6: This has nothing to do with me, remember!
1: Dr. Collins shut himself up in a patient room.
2: The doctor did?!
4: They're sure taking their sweet time. What are they doing in there, anyway?
5: Hey, chief! You sure we can't take a peek inside that box? It's in their car, isn't it?
7: Hmmm... (This is outside our area of jurisdiction, so we really can't, but...)
1: Fine. It may give us a clue or two.
2: We'll wait five more minutes. If they don't come out by then, I'll go inside.
3: You deal with the box.
SFX: HIIIEEEE KWERK HOHOHOHO
1: Mrs. Schwartz was brought here on the verge of death. After Dr. Collins saw her off,
2: he shut himself up in her room.
3: But why?
4: I have no idea. But he's been in here for three years now.
5: He even locked it from the inside.
1: There are two hours left until I'm off. Finish your business by then.
3: I think you should wait here.
2: Why did he have something that looked just like mom's memento?!
3: /Oh God!
1: Wake up, doctor!
3: If you're still sane, then I need you to tell me something.
4: How did Mrs. Schwartz die?
5: Mrs. Schwartz...
6: Ohh, Mrs. Schwartz...
7: Never heard of her.
9: We don't have time, doctor! What happened here three years ago?!
1: St-stop, please, Helmut! Don't hurt me!
4: did you just say...?
5: Look at me! Why did you just call me Helmut?!
6: You're my patient! How could I ever forget you?!
7: P... patient?!
1: Why did you come back, Helmut...?
2: After you worked so hard to get free....
4: It's your fault that all this happened, Helmut...
5: Stop it...
6: Stop calling me Helmut!
8: is all your fault!!
1: I'm not Helmut!!
3: It won't open!
5: Someone! Someone, open this door!
1: Ahhh! It's glowing again!
2: What is this?!
1: Ohhh... he comes! He comes!
2: I was just helping him! I was just...
3: Uwaaahh! My body!
4: Nooo! Stop!!
1: It looks like the end is near, Helmut...
2: It was indeed a clever method we used to cut the link with him...
3: By erasing your memories and making you a blank slate, we even managed to keep your unconscious thoughts from reaching him.
4: That's why I did as I was told, opened up your brain... and destroyed your memory center
5: in order to let you lose your memories, as you wished!
1: Who's "he?"
2: The devil.
3: What kind of a promise...
4: did I make with him?
5: A pact with your soul.
6: I... I'm losing my strength. My body's getting lighter!
7: Am I
8: going to die?
9: You cannot deceive him.
10: The pact must be upheld.
1: Help him, chief!
3: I'm going to go search for the nurse!
4: It's no use. She ran away already.
5: I found this after she left.
6: It's Rosie's wallet.
8: This is the farm my mom told me about!
9: Out of the way, dear.
2: What is that...
1: Ohhh... this is...
2: The virgin! The black priestess!
3: I'm Maria Schwartz's daughter, Christine!
4: Helmut is a lucky man.
6: You mean you really are...
8: You have no time to cry! You are the only one who can save that man!
1: I understand.
2: My mother taught me everything.
3: So be it. My time on this plane is up as well, so we may as well give it a try.
5: I'm in here.
6: (Woahh! What's all that wind?!
7: Is there a fan monster in there or something?!
8: Ben! Please, take us to this place!
1: Wh... why do you have to go here?
2: To save Rosie!
3: It'd help if we had two more strong men.
4: I'll go get Hook and Donald to come around from the back.
5: /Shut up, you idiot!
6: You need to hurry, before twilight comes...
7: Please! All you need to do is take us there!
9: Please, Ben! Hurry!
10: Gimme a break here! I'm a cop!
11: What am I supposed to do?!
1: I have a feeling this is going to be a really big case!
SFX: PITTER PATTER
2: A Black Mass! I've always wanted to see one!
1: Th... that can't be!
2: Christine can't be Rosie's daughter!!
3: Offering up a family member, especially a virgin, is a very effective way to seal demonic power.
4: Um... uh...
6: But their ages don't match up!
7: Rosie doesn't look over 23, no matter how you throw him! And Chris is 18, isn't she?
8: You're free to disbelieve me if you like.
1: The young man named Rosie and the star named Helmut were once one man.
2: A 40-year old man living a quiet, uneventful career as a club singer... his name was Schwartz.
5: There's no way I can believe that.
6: But it's the truth!
7: Once, in a moment of profound doubt as to his own abilities,
8: Schwartz's wife revealed to him that she was a black magic priestess.
1: In exchange for musical talent and youth,
2: he made a pact to offer up the lives of many other people as well as his own to the devil. The time limit was five years.
3: Then, he secretly began planning a way to avoid having to answer to the pact.
4: I assisted him here. He blinded me with his money...
5: But at a certain point, I became too scared. I knew there was no way we could possibly beat the devil!
6: And so, I performed plastic surgery on him and then threw him out in Manhattan.
1: Mrs. Schwartz tried to continue the ritual on her own, but she failed and died.
2: And so, she left the rest to her daughter Christine.
3: But that just can't be...
4: Those two... they're in love!
5: Yes. It's repugnant.
6: He may have been the one who led them to fall in love with each other.
7: In order to show them what happens to those who try and fool the devil.
1: In order to make them suffer, in order to teach them a lesson...
2: He pulled around the young Rosie...
3: made them commit the cardinal sin of incest... now, all Christine needs to do is lose her virginity, and his plan will be complete.
4: But you may have saved them from that fate.
6: You may be their Joker. Their card of good fortune!
7: The devil may have made a mistake in not killing you sooner.
1: Just recently, wasn't there another case where a man tried to evade his pact with the devil and ended up committing suicide?
3: You know him very well. He was German.
4: It was a very large-scale pact, so he had to provide lots of sacrifices.
5: He mainly used Jewish people, though.
1: I wonder what my girlfriend would say if she saw me like this.
2: This is humiliating! How could you ever tell anyone?
3: What are you all doing here?
1: preparing a black magic ceremony. I don't really know much about it myself.
2: Make them stop it, Ben... this is insane.
3: How many years has it been
4: since we've been able to perform such a perfect ceremony?!
5: We're all ready, doctor.
1: Bring him up here, chief...
2: Christine, what are you...
4: No... father...
5: Stop it! Why are you talking like that too?!
6: Because this was how I was raised.
1: The daughter of a priestess must fulfill her duty.
3: You're just an 18-year old girl! And--
4: And besides, I love you!
5: Rosie! There's no turning back now!
6: I will happily give up my blood for the one I love!
3: G... give it up?
4: Hey now, don't tell me you really...
5: It's too late for complaints now.
6: We have no time. Hurry!
7: Get away from me!
1: No! This is crazy!
3: Rosie! Hey!
5: If I'm really Helmut...
6: If I really sold my soul to the devil, then...
1: Then I'll give it to him, just as I promised!
2: That'll solve everything!!
2: It was a dud?!
4: Let go, Ben!
5: Stop, Rosie! Calm down!
3: I can't even kill myself?!
4: You really think your soul will be enough to satiate him now?! Not even all our souls will!
6: I want a serious answer here, doctor. What happens to Rosie if the spell is removed?
1: Will he go back to being Schwartz?
2: No, never again. He'll age as Rosie and die.
3: Who could believe that!!
5: Modern medicine is...
6: Doctor! Morning will be coming soon! We must hurry!
7: Rosie! You must stay alive to save others from the devil!
8: Please! Just do as the doctor says!
2: How am I supposed to go on living without you?!
3: That's your punishment.
5: You need to go on bearing this sin for the rest of your life!
1: If you want your three men to live, then you'll do as I say, chief!
2: Stop this! Stop the doctor!
4: Ben! You must complete this ritual!
5: Otherwise our sacrifices will have been for nothing!
7: If just stay still and watch this, we'll be accomplices to murder!
1: Both of their bodies started glowing!
2: Elohim essaim! I seek thee, I implore thee!
1: It... it's a trick! It has to be!
2: But how?! When did they set it up?!
4: Just recently, wasn't there another case where a man tried to evade his pact with the devil and ended up committing suicide? You know him very well. He was German.
5: Not even all our souls will be enough to satiate him!
6: /You are free to disbelieve me if you like.
7: Free to disbelieve...
1: Lucifer, dark lord of hell!
2: I offer these souls up to you!
4: Chief! I can't take it anymore!!
6: I'm a cop, goddammit!!
4: Oh no! The first birds are chirping for dawn!
2: Elohim essaim! I seek thee, I implore thee!
3: Dark lord!
4: Please accept my blood and forgive this man!!
2: A-are you alright? What was that...
1: That was quite the show.
2: You always find a way to entertain me.
3: Wh... who's there?!
4: Where's that voice coming from?!
5: The sign in my chest disappeared...
1: I've decided to grant your wish, in exchange for this precious virgin's blood...
2: If any of you ever want to make a pact with me... the door is always open...
4: (Chief! What is this?!
1: But never, ever think of deceiving me...
4: You should know full well what happens to those who try and deceive me!
5: I killed you!!
4: No! This can't be happening!
5: I want to go home! I want to go home, dammit!
6: Rosie! Don't be stupid!
1: PJ Harriet - The drunk detective of Manhattan lies here
2: Christine went to Germany?
3: Yeah... to visit her parents' graves.
4: What are you going to do now?
5: Well, I can't die no matter how bad I want to...
6: There you go again...
1: My curse is going to continue.
2: Don't get hasty now. You're still young.
3: I feel like I've been alive for hundreds of years.
4: Everyone drags some kind of baggage along as they live. No one's perfect, you know?
5: Especially not anyone living here in New York.
6: That's why detectives like you can make a living here. Right, Rosie?
1: Still, it's a shame that no one was able to claim the fortune in that bank... if only you could prove to them that you're Helmut...
1: Quit it. I don't want that money.
2: I want to believe that I'm a completely different person than Helmut.
3: Otherwise, the pain will just suffocate me.
4: I'm Rosie. A detective taught by PJ.
1: You know, Rosie, there's this thing called voice printing...
3: Keep talking like that, and you'll invite the devil back, Ben.
5: Sorry, sorry!
6: Believe me, I've had my fill of devils.
