Cut to a man sitting at usual desk. He is Mr. Boniface.

 

Boniface: (M.P.) Good evening. Tonight on 'It's the Mind', we examine the phenomenon of déjà vu. That strange feeling we sometimes get that we've lived through something before, that what is happening now has already happened. Tonight on 'It's the Mind' we examine the phenomenon of déjà vu, that strange feeling we sometimes get that we've ... (looks puzzled for a moment) Anyway, tonight on 'It's the Mind' we examine the phenomenon of déjà vu, that strange...

 

Cut to opening title sequence with montage of psychiatric photos and the two captions and music over. Cut back to Mr. Boniface at desk, shaken.

Boniface: Good ... good evening. Tonight on 'It's the Mind' we examine the phenomenon of dddddddddddéjà vvvvvvvvuu, that extraordinary feeling... quite extraordinary... (he tails off, goes quiet, the phone rings, he picks it up) No, fine thanks, fine. (he rings off, a man comes in on the right and hands him glass of water and leaves) Oh, thank you. That strange feeling we sometimes get that we've lived through something before. (phone rings again; he picks it up) No, fine thank you. Fine. (he rings off; a man comes in from right and hands him a glass of water; he jumps) ... Thank you. That strange feeling ... (phone rings; he answers) No. Fine, thank you. Fine. (ring off; a man enters and gives him glass of water) thank you. (he screams with fear) Look, something's happening to me. I - I - um, I think I'd better go and see someone. Goodnight.

 

Phone rings again. He leaps from desk and runs out of shot. He runs out of building into street and chases after passing milk float and leaps aboard.

 

Milkman: (E.I.) Oi, haven't I seen you somewhere before?

 

Boniface: No, doctor, no. Something very funny's happening to me.

Cut to montage of photographs again with captions and music. Cut to Boniface at desk. Boniface screams and runs out of shot. Cut to same piece of film as just previously, when he chases float, leaps on and the milkman says:

 

Milkman: Oi, haven't I seen you somewhere before?

 

Boniface: No, doctor, no. Something very funny's happening to me.

 

The milk float goes past in the background with the milkman and Boniface on it. We see the float go along the country lane past the clearing, past the bishop from the flying lessons sketch...

 

Bishop: (M.P.) (camp) 'Oh, Mr. Belpit, your legs are so swollen.'

 

... and the secretary at her desk, past a sign saying 'to the zoo' where explosions are heard, and stops outside Dr. Cream's building... Boniface runs into building and enters Dr. Cream's office.

 

Dr. Cream: (T.J.) Ah, come in. Now what seems to be the matter?

 

Boniface: I have this terrible feeling of déjà vu.

 

Repeat same clip from Boniface entering.

 

Dr. Cream: Ah, come in. Now what seems to be the matter?

 

Boniface: I have this terrible feeling of déjà vu..

 

Repeat clip again.
