Death is a shortcut.

ADAM: Can you see any scars? LAWRENCE: What? ADAM: Huh? This is what they do man, (he gestures to his stomach, where there are in fact no scars.) They kidnap you and drug you and before you know it, you're in a bathtub and your kidneys are on eBay. LAWRENCE: No one has taken your kidneys. ADAM: How can you tell from way over there? LAWRENCE: Because you'd either be in terrible agony, or you'd be dead by now. Trust me.

JIGSAW: Rise and shine, Adam. You're probably wondering where you are. I'll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room that you die in. Up until now, you simply sat in the shadows, watching others live out their lives. But what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror? Now, I see you as a strange mix of someone angry and yet apathetic. But mostly just pathetic. So are you going to watch yourself die today, Adam? Or do something about it?

JIGSAW: Dr. Gordon, this is your wake up call. Every day of your working life, you have given people the news that they are going to die soon. Now you will be the cause of death. Your aim in this game is to kill Adam. (Adam glances down at the tape recorder wide-eyed, then back up at Lawrence) You have until six on the clock to do it. There' sa man in the room with you. When there's that much poison in your blood (another view of the body from Lawrence's POV), the only thing left to do is shoot yourself. (Jigsaw coughs) There are ways to win this hidden all around you. Just remember: "X" marks the spot for the treasure. If you do not kill Adam by 6:00, then Alison and Diana will die, Dr. Gordon. And I'll leave you in this room to rot. Let the game begin.

LAWRENCE: He doesn't want us to cut through our chains. He wants us to cut through our feet.

KERRY: This one's not fresh anymore. At least three weeks out. Victim's a 46-year old male. Died of massive blood loss. Mostly through the femoral artery. He started at the back of the cage and tunneled his way through the razor wire so fast it's amazing he got as far as he did. Cut himself so deep, we found traces of stomach acid on the floor. We also found this. JIGSAW: Hello Paul. You are a perfectly healthy, sane, middle-class male. Yet last month, you ran a straight razor across your wrists. Did you cut yourself because you truly wanted to die, or did you just want some attention? Tonight, you'll show me. The irony is that if you want to die, you just have to stay where you are. But if you want to live, you'll have to cut yourself again. (Flashback shot of Paul waking up in the cage, looking around, scared and confused. The shots go back and forth between the detectives and the Paul flashback, with him grabbing and shaking the razor wire, screaming. His screams sound distant under Jigsaw's voice.) Find the path through the razor wire to the door. But hurry. At 3:00 that door will lock and then this room becomes your tomb. How much blood will you shed to stay alive, Paul?

LAWRENCE: The newspapers started calling him the "Jigsaw Killer." Actually, technically speaking, he's not really a murderer. He never killed anyone. He finds ways for his victims to kill themselves.

JIGSAW: Hello Mark. If you're so sick, then why do I have so many photos of you up and about? Let's put your so-called "illness" to the test. Right now, there is a slow-acting poison in your veins. The antidote is in the safe. The combination to the safe is written on the wall. Hurry up and program it in. But watch your step. And by the way, that's a flammable substance smeared on your body so I would be careful with that candle, if I were you... or all the people you've burned with your act just might have their revenge.

JIGSAW: Hello Amanda. You donít know me, but I know you. I want to play a game. Hereís what happens if you lose. The device youíre wearing is hooked into your upper and lower jaws. When the timer at the back goes off, your mouth will be permanently ripped open. Think of it like a reverse bear trap. Here, Iíll show you. There is only one key to open the device. Itís in the stomach of your dead cellmate. Look around, Amanda. Know that Iím not lying. You better hurry up. Live or die. Make your choice.

LAWRENCE: To overcome something, you have to understand what a perfect engine it is. Thatís how you fight disease. Now the tape told us to find an ďX.Ē That ďXĒ has to be somewhere in this room. Help me find it.

ADAM: Give me that. LAWRENCE: Are you joking? Youíre gonna put something we found in this room in your mouth? ADAM: Yes, Iím willing to risk it! Give me that sweet cancer. I donít care, I really donít. Give me one of those. JIGSAW: The cigarettes are harmless, I promise. Smoking is only poisonous when it ends in bloodshed. Think about this - you donít need a gun to kill Adam.

LAWRENCE: The person who paid you to follow me, who was it? ADAM: He calls himself Bob and he gives me the money up front. Two hundred bucks a night. If Iíd have known I was gonna end up here, I wouldíve asked for a hell of a lot more.
