''EXT. – RAILWAY – NIGHT''


Someone we can see only from the legs downwards is breathing heavily as they run slowly along the railway track. The person leaves the track and bumps into a MAN walking alongside it.


MAN<br />
Hey! Dick!


The person who was running turns around and we see that it is SAM. SAM then starts to run again, goes through a gate, and walks along a heavily-graffitied alleyway. A woman is buying drugs from a DEALER. The woman leaves and SAM walks closer to the DEALER.


DEALER<br />
Dude. Get the hell away from me.


SAM rubs a hand over his face. He looks exhausted.


DEALER<br />
You speak friggin' English? Go away!


SAM<br />
It's okay. No one's after me.


DEALER<br />
Why are you running up in here like that?


SAM<br />
Just... Just leave me alone.


SAM slides down to the ground with his back against a post.


DEALER<br />
What the hell did you take, anyway?


SAM<br />
Nothing.


DEALER<br />
Shut up.


HALLUCIFER<br />
No, he's telling the truth. Burned through that last beer hours ago. Right about the time Dean passed out. Come on, Sam. Tell the nice tweaker. You'd be sleeping by now if the devil would just leave you alone for five seconds. Stupid Satan. Chasing you all the way to... Where the hell are we?


SAM<br />
[Holding his face in his hands] Gah! I just need some rest.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Hey. Sam. Try the hand scar.


SAM<br />
Ugh!


DEALER<br />
How many days you been up, anyway?


HALLUCIFER<br />
Four. Oh. Wait. [Looks at his watch] Scratch that. Five.


SAM gets to his feet and starts to walk away.


DEALER<br />
Hey, hold up! Wait! Hold up!


SAM turns around.


DEALER<br />
You want to knock out? I can knock you out.


CUT TO: SAM and the DEALER are asleep in the front seats of a car. Something shatters the windshield, spraying glass over SAM. SAM gets out. A bar is protruding through the shattered windshield, but when SAM looks again, the windshield is intact. HALLUCIFER appears behind SAM.


HALLUCIFER<br />
[singing and making hand motions] Good morning to you, good morning to you…


SAM walks away.


HALLUCIFER<br />
[singing and making hand motions] …our day is beginning, so good morning to you.

[calls after SAM] I thought you liked my singing!


CUT TO: HALLUCIFER walking just behind SAM. SAM is breathing heavily and blinking rapidly.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Pills? You do get that you're just bringing free drugs to the party, right? I am <i>inside</i> you, Sam. Hey. Sam. What's the longest a normal human being has ever gone without sleep? 11 days. [chuckles] Hey. You always wanted to be normal, Sam!


CUT TO: SAM running away from HALLUCIFER.


HALLUCIFER<br />
If you are, you'll be dead in a week!


SAM runs in front of a car, which hits him and sends him up onto the windshield, over the car and to the ground.

== ACT ONE ==


''INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY''

A DOCTOR is working at his desk. DEAN opens the door and enters, followed by a nurse.


NURSE<br />
Okay, sir? You can't just barge in here without an appointment!


DEAN<br />
They said, "Talk to Kadinsky." You Kadinsky?


NURSE<br />
You need to be scheduled!


DEAN<br />
Well, then, schedule me! He was in a car crash. Why the hell can't I see him?


DR KADINSKY<br />
You're Sam Smith's brother.


DEAN<br />
Yeah, what's going on?


DR KADINSKY<br />
[to the NURSE] I-it's fine. Thank you. Really.


The NURSE leaves.


DR KADINSKY<br />
Sam was admitted. He was treated for a broken rib and lacerations.


DEAN<br />
Okay. That's not too bad. And?


DR KADINSKY<br />
And... he's on our locked psychiatric floor.


DEAN<br />
I mean, he's had some trouble...


DR KADINSKY<br />
So you're aware that Sam is experiencing a full-blown psychotic episode?


DEAN<br />
Psychotic? Come on. I mean, the guy's... It's not like the guy's freakin' Norman Bates.


DR KADINSKY<br />
No, I'm sure he isn't. We need to determine whether his state was brought on by the insomnia or whether the insomnia is a symptom of his condition. Do you understand? So that we can figure out how to treat him.


DEAN<br />
Well, all I can say is that the sleep thing is – is kind of new.


DR KADINSKY<br />
Right. Well... we've pumped him about as full of sedatives as we safely can. So far, he won't go under. I've never seen anything like it.


CUT TO: DR KADINSKY pushing a button to enter Ward D2. A sign on the wall and the door read “High Security Area”. He and DEAN walk down the hallway.


CUT TO: SAM’s hospital room. HALLUCIFER is sitting on a desk, playing with a piece of string. SAM is on the bed, dressed in a white T-shirt and white hospital pants.


HALLUCIFER<br />
I'm just sayin'. Back when you had no soul...


DR KADINSY and DEAN appear at the door.


HALLUCIFER<br />
...you never had to sleep.


DEAN enters the room.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Ah, Mr. Helpless. Pull up a six-pack, buddy.


DEAN<br />
How are you feeling?


SAM<br />
Maybe you should cancel my UFC fight.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Yeah. Keep that sense of humor, Sam. It'll get you through this.


DEAN sits down on the end of SAM’s bed.


DEAN<br />
Sam, I'm gonna find you help.


SAM exhales and looks away.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Now, that sounded a little cynical.


SAM<br />
I don't think it's out there, Dean.


DEAN<br />
We don't know that.


SAM<br />
We know better than most. It's all snake oil. Last faith healer we hooked up with had a reaper on a leash. Remember?


DEAN stands up.


DEAN<br />
Yeah, Sam, I remember.


SAM<br />
I'm just saying...


DEAN<br />
What? That you don't want my help?


SAM<br />
No, I'm just saying… don't do this to yourself.


DEAN<br />
Sam, if I don't find something –


SAM<br />
Then I'll die.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Oh, you're upsetting me.


SAM<br />
Dean, we knew this was coming.


DEAN<br />
No.


SAM<br />
When you put my soul back.


DEAN<br />
No.


SAM<br />
Cas warned you about all the crap it would –


DEAN<br />
Screw Cas! Quit being Dalai frickin' Yoda about this, okay? [punches his hand with his fist] Get pissed!


SAM<br />
[sighs] I'm too tired. This is what happens when you throw a soul into Lucifer's dog bowl. And you think there's just gonna be some cure out there?


SAM looks at DEAN sadly. DEAN nods and bites his lip.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Oh, you guys are having a moment.


DEAN leaves the room.



''INT. – HOUSE – DAY''


DEAN is looking through a journal and talking on the phone.


DEAN (on phone)<br />
I'm a friend of Bobby Singer's. I'm looking for some info. If you could, uh, call me back. 785-555-0128. Thanks.


He hangs up and crosses a name off a list.



''INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY''


The NURSE is taking SAM’s blood pressure and temperature as HALLUCIFER looks on.



''INT. – HOUSE – DAY''


DEAN (on phone)<br />
[sarcastically] I am so sorry to have bothered you.


DEAN crosses another name off his list. Eight names are now crossed off.



''INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY''


HALLUCIFER is reading from a large book. SAM is sitting on the edge of the bed, facing away from HALLUCIFER.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Narcissistic personality disorder. Okay, now, this one I could have.


The NURSE enters.


NURSE<br />
Time for meds, Sam.


HALLUCIFER<br />
Sets unrealistic goals. Check. <i>But</i> trouble keeping healthy relationships? Not so sure about that one. Thoughts?



''INT. – HOUSE – DAY''


DEAN (on phone)<br />
Yeah. Thanks.


DEAN hangs up, crosses out another name, closes the journal and picks up a smaller journal. He tosses the smaller journal onto a table as he walks to the refrigerator. As he is taking out a can, the journal falls to the ground. DEAN picks it up. A business card for Mackey’s Taxidermy has fallen out. On the back is a cell phone number.


DEAN (on phone)<br />
Yeah, hi. Uh... my name's Dean. I'm a friend of Bobby Singer's. I'm, uh, looking for some info. If you could call me back at 785-555-0128. Thanks.


DEAN hangs up.



''INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY''


SAM is sitting on the edge of his bed with his eyes closed. DR KADINSKY enters.


DR KADINSKY<br />
Sam, how are we feeling today? Rib pain – scale of 1 to 10?


SAM<br />
It's – it's not bad. Um [clears throat] Three.


DR KADINSKY<br />
You don't have to lie, Sam.


SAM<br />
I'm – I'm not.


DR KADINSKY<br />
You've suffered terrible agony. I mean, your 10 must be astronomical.


SAM<br />
Yeah. I-I guess I have a high threshold.


DR KADINSKY<br />
Yeah. But the worst is knowing that there's always a new 10.


SAM<br />
What are you talking about?


DR KADINSKY<br />
Well, I'm talking about the truly elegant torture I have prepared for you today…


DR KADINSKY morphs into HALLUCIFER.


HALLUCIFER<br />
…Sam.


SAM gets up and turns away from HALLUCIFER.


SAM<br />
Just stay the hell away from me.


HALLUCIFER<br />
But it's – it's so nice chatting. Sam, I hate these one-sided conversations. Come on, buddy. [raises fists] Engage. Sam? You... me... locked ward. Is it me, or is this just like the Cage?



''EXT. – HOSPITAL – NIGHT''


''INT. – HOSPITAL – NIGHT''


SAM is sitting on the bed, yawning. An orderly brings in a tray. SAM picks up a plate holding a sandwich and sits down on the bed again. He takes a bite, then looks down at the sandwich and sees that it is crawling with maggots. He drops the sandwich to the floor and moves further up the bed. A GIRL wearing white hospital clothes with a bandage on her neck is watching from the doorway.



''INT. – HOUSE – NIGHT''


DEAN is doing a search on the laptop. He brings up the “Amazing Grace Helping Friends” website. His phone rings. The scene alternates between DEAN in the house and MACKEY standing next to his truck.


DEAN<br />
This is Dean.


MACKEY<br />
Mackey. Calling you back. Hey. Real sorry about Bobby.


DEAN<br />
Yeah, me too.


MACKEY<br />
Look, what you called about – I might have something for you. There's this guy. He goes by "Emanuel." He kind of roams. First started hearing about him a couple of months back. How he was healing the sick, curing the crazy.


DEAN<br />
Uh-huh.


MACKEY<br />
Naturally, I think something in the milk ain't clean. Find this sucker, punch his clock. Right?


DEAN<br />
Right.


MACKEY<br />
Heard the best way to get to him is through his wife, Daphne, out in Colorado? So, I go. Tell her I'm going blind. It's true. My right eye's burnt out. She says, "Go home. He'll come." So, I go. I set every trap, every test in the book.


DEAN<br />
That's what I would have done.


MACKEY<br />
Emanuel shows. He passes every one. There ain't nothing weird about this guy. Except... he's the real deal.


DEAN<br />
What do you mean?


MACKEY<br />
He touched me, and my eye was fixed. Look – I don't believe in much that don't suck your blood. But I wouldn't call you on a maybe.



''INT. – HOSPITAL – NIGHT''


SAM is sitting on the edge of his bed, covering his ears and facing away from HALLUCIFER, who is talking through a loudspeaker.


HALLUCIFER<br />
"Oh, my head hurts. Make it stop!"


GIRL<br />
Hello?

The GIRL who watched SAM from the doorway earlier is standing in the room. She holds out a chocolate bar to SAM.


GIRL<br />
You want this or not? I saw you yesterday.


SAM takes the chocolate bar.


GIRL<br />
You didn't look too happy with your in-flight meal.


SAM<br />
Thanks. Uh...


GIRL<br />
Marin. No problem. Sam. Right?


The loudspeaker blares and SAM winces.


HALLUCIFER<br />
"I'm Sam."


SAM covers his face and MARIN leaves.


HALLUCIFER<br />
"Hello, Sam. Hi."



''EXT. – HOUSE – DAY''


DEAN walks up the stairs to the front door and knocks. A MAN opens the door.


DEAN<br />
Hi. Uh, is this, uh, Daphne Allen's house? I'm looking for Emanuel.


MAN<br />
Well, you found him. Daphne's resting. If you don't mind.


DEAN<br />
Oh, yeah, sure.


EMANUEL steps outside and closes the door.


DEAN<br />
Um… So, I was hoping, uh…


Through the window, DEAN sees a WOMAN who is bound to a chair and gagged. He looks back at EMANUEL, whose eyes turn black: he is a DEMON. The DEMON grabs DEAN and throws him against the door.


DEMON<br />
You were saying, Dean?


DEAN<br />
You know, I'd think twice. Or don't you know that your boss issued a hands-off memo?


DEMON<br />
[laughs] Please. What have you done for him lately? Roman's head on a plate? No? Whatever Emanuel is, Crowley's gonna want him – a lot more than he wants you these days. So...


The DEMON starts towards DEAN, who stabs it with his knife. The DEMON yells and light flashes from his eyes and mouth as it dies. DEAN pushes the DEMON down the stairs as he withdraws his knife. A man is standing at the bottom of the stairs. DEAN stares: it is the body of Jimmy Novak, CASTIEL’s former vessel.


EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
What was that?
