Mr Boniface: [“It’s the Mind: A Weekly Magazine of Things Psychiatric”] Good evening.

[looks puzzled]
Mr Boniface: Anyway, tonight on “It’s the Mind”, we examine the phenomenon of déjà vu, that strange –
[“It’s the Mind” opening titles again, then back to Mr Boniface, shaken]

[“It’s the Mind” opening titles again, then back to Mr Boniface, visibly shaken]
Mr Boniface: Good… good evening. Tonight on “It’s the Mind”, we examine the phenomenon of d-d-d-d-d-déjà v-v-v-v-v-vu. That extraordinary feeling… quite extraordinary…
[trails off; the phone rings and he picks it up]
Mr Boniface: No, fine thanks, fine.
[a hand reaches in and sets a glass on the desk; Boniface drinks and the hand exits]
Mr Boniface: Oh thank you. That strange feeling we sometimes get that we’ve lived through something before.

Mr Boniface: No, fine thank you, fine.
[hand with glass]
Mr Boniface: Thank you.
[jumps and yelps]
Mr Boniface: Look, something’s happening to me. I-I-um, I think I’d better go and see someone. Good night.
[exits and boards the psychiatrist milk float outside]
Milkman: Oi, haven’t I seen you somewhere before?
Mr Boniface: No, doctor, no. Something very funny’s happening to me.
[“It’s the Mind” opening titles again, then back to Boniface in the studio, nervously biting his nails. He sees the camera, screams with terror, and runs outside to the float]
Milkman: Oi, haven’t I seen you somewhere before?
Mr Boniface: No, doctor, no. Something very funny’s happening to me.
[a few minutes later, outside Dr Cream’s office, Boniface jumps off and runs inside]
Dr Cream: Ah, come in. Now what seems to be the matter?
Mr Boniface: I have this terrible feeling of déjà vu.
[outside, he jumps off the float, looks about, puzzled, and runs inside]
Dr Cream: Ah, come in. Now, what seems to be the matter?
Mr Boniface: I have this terrible feeling of déjà vu.
[outside, he jumps off the float, more shaken, and runs in]
Dr Cream: Ah, come in. Now what seems to be the matter?
Mr Boniface: I have this terrible feeling of déjà vu.
[outside, he jumps off the float, looks about, scared, and runs inside as the show ends]
