12 Monkeys Scene 17

Scene 17

Scene 17

  • Cole and Railly find the Freedom for Animals Association's headquarters.
  • At first, Teddy, Fale, and Bee—the members of the FAA—deny they have any association with the Army of the 12 Monkeys, but Cole gets them talking after tying them up at gunpoint.
  • It's an effective way to get people to open up.
  • They admit they worked with Jeffery Goines but say they parted ways with him once his actions grew too extreme. Goines formed the Army of the 12 Monkeys after splitting from the FAA.
  • Later, Goines held a news announcement to say he would personally supervise his father's lab to ensure the animals' safety.
  • Cole finds a Rolodex with the address of the Goines' mansion.
  • Railly drives Cole to the Goines' mansion while trying to explain how delusional he is. She notices his leg is hurt and stops to get medical supplies.
  • They chill in the woods while she removes the bullet from his leg.
  • Cole apologizes to her and then does…something. The movie cuts away before we find out.
