DÉJÀ VU
Written by: Cecilia Fannon and Sean Roche


Carmen distracts the guard while stealing the ivory hooks.

Carmen: "Excuse me... can you help me find the kayak display?"
Guard: "Oh... ha-ha, certainly ma'am, but you've got the wrong building. Go back out front here, make a right there, and uh, it's the second building on your left. And there's a large kayak hanging out front, you can't miss it."
Carmen: "Thank you. You've been more help than you'll ever know."
Guard: "Hmm, what a nice lady."

The Player and Carmen.

Player: "Some real cool moves, Carmen. But my detectives are going to be hot on your trail."
Carmen: "It'll take more experience than you have to figure out what I'm really after, Player."

They try to figure out what Carmen is up to.

Chief: "Records indicate all these items were things Carmen once stopped other crooks from stealing back when she was a detective."
Zack: "Get out of town!"
Ivy: "What?"
Chief: "Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Wow, gotta get a newspaper boy."
Ivy: "'Detectives Suhara and Sandiego nabs ne'er-do-wells'."
Zack: "Who's this Suhara guy, Chief?"
Chief: "He used to be Carmen's partner back when she was an Acme detective."
Ivy: "So, where is detective Suhara now?"
Chief: "Well, to tell you the truth, after Carmen went bad detective Suhara took it kind of rough. He quit detective work altogether and now he lives alone in San Francisco."

Suhara sensei tries to teach Zack.

Suhara: "The ritual of taking tea is something people have done for centuries. Like Zen training, it helps one to slow down, to think clearly, to become one with all that surrounds us."
Zack: "Just makes me have to go to the bathroom."

Suhara talks about the past.

Ivy: "Suhara, is that picture of you and Carmen on a job?"
Suhara: "That one was a case in Barcelona, Spain where we became trapped in a medieval castle with no way out. I had taught Carmen everything I knew but she went far beyond my humble abilities."

Suhara blames himself...

Suhara: "She was my most brilliant student. Perhaps I did not provide her with enough challenges."
Ivy: "It's not your fault she turned out to be such a weak link, Suhara. With her abilities she could have been the greatest detective of all time. Instead, she chose to waste everything she had on a life of crime. Don't blame yourself."

Ivy teases the henchmen after they give her the newspaper clue.

Ivy: "Carmen not paying enough these days, boys? You have to pick-up a paper route on the side?"

Zack doesn't want Suhara to tag along.

Zack: "What is this us stuff all of a sudden?"
Ivy: "He wants to go with us, Zack."
Zack: "Ivy, he's... look at him! I mean, he's old. He'll just slow us down."
Ivy: "Another way to look at it is that he's old and has a lifetime of experience. I have seniority on this team and I say we invite him."

Zack ditches them.

Suhara: "This is a good day."
Ivy: "Good? How can you say that? I can't believe the way he's acting!"
Suhara: "Well, I have made a new friend and found a very needy new pupil."

Zack C-5s into the middle of a sumo match and they tease him about it.

Suhara: "The good news is we found I. M. Sumo. He couldn't imagine why Carmen might be after the puppets we stopped him from stealing ten years ago."
Ivy: "But he said if they were anywhere they'd be at the National Bunraku Theater in downtown Tokyo."
Zack: "What's the bad news?"
Suhara: "You won the match and the title bout is tomorrow."

Now I am the master...

Carmen: "Greetings, Suhara-sama."
Suhara: "Carmen. It has been a long time. Though I must say it was easier finding you than I anticipated."
Carmen: "I'm disapointed, Suhara. I thought you'd offer more of a challenge. But I suppose you've lost the power and grace you once possessed from too many years locked away in... self-pity."
Suhara: "You are the one who has lost something, Carmen."
     [Suhara swings on the rope but can't hold onto the ledge.]
Carmen: "Suhara, take my hand!"

Suhara's solution to the problem...

Zack: "Well, she got away! So, what are we going to do now?"
Suhara: "A teacher must teach, Zack, so a student can do. I think tea is what's needed now."
Zack: "Tea? Tea! How are we ever going to catch Carmen if we're always stopping for tea!"

They both have learned on this case.

Suhara: "So, you have learned to slow down. Then perhaps I can learn to speed up. Player, I believe I am prepared for the C-5 experience."

Pretty good deal...

Suhara: "That was exceptional."
Zack: "Suhara, buddy, you help us bust Carmen and we'll give you unlimited access to the C-5 for life."

Confronting Carmen in Santa Fe.

Carmen: "I wondered what was taking you so long. What a shame you're too late to stop me from stealing this ancient canteen we once saved together. It has such sentimental value."
Suhara: "You figured that my pursuing you would make this caper all the more challenging, isn't that it?"
Carmen: "Well, you must admit that it has had it's moments, Suhara."
Suhara: "You are drawn to the danger like a moth is drawn to a flame. Only this time you've flown too close."
Ivy: "Much too close."
Zack: "There's no way out, Carmen."
Carmen: "You haven't been listening to Suhara, Zack. There's always a way out."

Let Zack take the crucial shot?

Suhara: "Zack, the bow and arrow... you have the only shot."
Zack: "Oh, man, I flunked archery at camp."

teeny tiny black bar

Carmen escapes.

Carmen: "Nice shooting, Zack. Suhara's a good teacher, but soon you'll realize: the wiser you become, the more you have to learn."

The Player and Carmen.

Player: "You lured Suhara out of retirement and he almost busted you, Carmen."
Carmen: "There's no teacher like experience, Player, and you'll realize that when you've logged a little more. But until then, remember: the quieter you become, the more you hear."
Player: "Hey? Hey! How'd you...?"
