REGAN/DEMON: Fuck him!!!

MERRIN: ...Be gone!!

REGAN/DEMON: Fuck him Karras!!! Fuck him!!!


MERRIN: ...from this creature of God!!!


Regan lays back as Merrin races to her bedside tracing the sign of the cross with his fingers in her hair.

MERRIN: Be gone!! In the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit!! By this sign of the holy cross, of our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the father and the holy spirit...

Regan sits up and with a nightmare slowness, a fraction at a time, her head begins to turn, swiveling like a mannequin's and creaking with the sound of a rusted mechanism. Once again Damien's attention is diverted and Merrin has to prompt him.

MERRIN: Damien!!!


Her head completely turns in a 360-degree turn and stares at Karras.

KARRAS: Amen.

MERRIN: Defender of the human race...


A thunderous earthquake knock both priests to the ground. Once again, an image of Captain Howdy surfaces on Regan/Demon's face.

MERRIN: ...look down in pity...


REGAN/DEMON: You killed your mother!!! You left her alone to die!!!! She'll never forgive you!!! Bastard!!!

KARRAS: Shut up!!

MERRIN: ... upon this your servant, Regan Teresa MacNeil.


Another quake knocks them to the ground. Regan falls back, the bed sheets fly off of the bed and the straps slowly rip apart. Regan's eyes roll back into the socket and she slowly starts to levitate.

MERRIN: I command you by the judge of the living and the dead, to depart from this servant of God.


Regan is now levitating toward the ceiling, arms out stretched like a cross.

MERRIN: It's the power! (To Karras) Holy water.

Karras runs to the bedside table and grabs the bottle of holy water, he runs back and gives it to Merrin.

MERRIN: It's the power of Christ, that compels you.

MERRIN + KARRAS: The power of Christ compels you.


Merrin sprinkles holy water.

MERRIN + KARRAS: The power of Christ compels you.

Merrin sprinkles holy water and we see a cut appear on her skin.

MERRIN + KARRAS: The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you.


Regan begins to descend.

MERRIN + KARRAS: The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you. The power of Christ compels you.


Regan lands back on the bed once more.

MERRIN + KARRAS: The power of Christ compels you.


Karras rushes to the bed and ties her hands together to symbolize the cross.

MERRIN: He brought you low by his bloodstained cross! Do not despise my command because you know me to be a sinner. It's God himself who commands you! The majestic Christ who commands you! God the Father commands you! God the son commands you!


As Karras turns away, Regan raises her tied hands and deals him a powerful blow on the back of his head. He falls to the floor.

MERRIN: God the holy spirit commands you!

Merrin sprinkles more holy water on Regan, she falls back and screams in pain.

MERRIN: The mystery of the cross commands you! The blood of the martyrs commands you!


The priests are again knocked to the floor by an earthquake. Briefly Regan lifts herself toward an apparition of the demon statue Pazuzu.

MERRIN: Give way to Christ, you prince of murderers. You're guilty, before Almighty God, guilty before his son, guilty before the whole human race. It's the Lord who expels you. He who is coming to judge both the living and the dead and the world by fire.


As Merrin kneels by the bed, Karras crawls over and covers Regan with a blanket.

MERRIN: Are you tired? (Karras nods) Let's rest before we start again.

Merrin leaves the room, but Karras stays sat on the bed, shivering with both coldness and fear. Regan is asleep.


SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY - STAIRS: An exhausted Merrin and Karras are sitting in the hallway, on the stairs, outside the bathroom.


KARRAS: Why this girl, doesn't makes no sense?

MERRIN: I think the point is to make us despair... To see ourselves as... animal and ugly... To reject the possibillity that God could love us. . . . Will you excuse me, Damien?

Merrin rises and moves toward the bathroom.


BATHROOM: Merrin sits on the toilet and takes out his pill box. He extracts a nitorglycerin tablet and places it under his tongue. He is shaking with fear as he holds his head with exhaustion.

SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY: Karras moves back toward the bedroom and enters.


REGAN'S BEDROOM: Karras is shocked to see an instant apparition of his mother, laying on the bed in place of Regan. It vanishes. He moves toward Regan, who is shivering and drenched with sweat. He sits on the bed and wipes Regan's head with a towel.


REGAN/MRS. KARRAS: Dimmy, why you did this to me? Please Dimmy, I'm afraid.

KARRAS: You're not my mother.

Karras gets out a stethoscope and places it on Regan's chest.

REGAN/MRS. KARRAS: Dimmy please!

MERRIN (re-enters the room): What is it?

KARRAS: Her heart.


MERRIN: Can you give her something?

KARRAS: She'll go into coma.

Regan, in the voice of Karras' mother, speaks a few pleading phrases in Greek to Karras.

KARRAS (shouting): You're not my mother!!!

MERRIN: Don't listen.

REGAN/MRS. KARRAS: Why, Dimmy?


Damien breaks into convulsive sobbing.

MERRIN: Damien.

REGAN/MRS. KARRAS: Dimmy, please!

MERRIN: Damien! . . . Get out.

Damien rises from the bed. Merrin leads him out, and then re-enters the room himself.


He sprinkles some holy water on Regan and kneels at her side. He holds her hand tightly.

MERRIN: Our Father, who art in heaven. Hallow be thy name..
