Nina Sharp Favorite Season One Scenes - Part One


Round 4

Pilot

Scene One – Nina / Olivia at Massive Dynamic




OLIVIA: I was hoping to speak with William Bell.
NINA: I'm Nina Sharp, Executive Director. I only have a few minutes.
OLIVIA: Our primary suspect is a former employee of yours, Richard Steig,
who may have used research from your company to develop a self-eradicating
airborne toxin. We don't know why or for whom, but it appears he was
willing to sacrifice his own brother. Whatever killed those people on that plane
got onboard through his insulin pen. So, do you want to talk to me?
NINA: (to her assistant) Danielle, please assemble everything we have
on Richard Steig for Agent Dunham here.
NINA: I remember Richard Steig. He worked in our Weapons System
Research lab. He was caught three months ago trying to leave the premises
with classified information. He was terminated immediately. We referred his
name to the Justice Department. We have done our do diligence, Agent
Dunham. And, if you choose to drag our company and Dr. Bell's name
into this matter, you will be hearing from our attorneys.
OLIVIA: How long have you worked for Dr. Bell?
NINA: Sixteen years. I owe Massive Dynamics my life and that is not an exaggeration. I was a runner most of my life.
In the '97 Boston Marathon,
I felt strangely tired. One day at the office Dr. Bell noticed my discomfort
and insisted I go for a CAT Scan. Cancer. Spread so severely I had to have my
arm amputated that week.That first scanner that found my cancer was built by this company.
The robotic assist tools that were used at my surgery, the drugs I took
afterwards, were developed and manufactured by Massive Dynamics.
And my replacement limb was designed by Bell himself.
NINA: Everything we have on Richard Steig. Do you believe that Steig
may be part of the "Pattern"?
OLIVIA: I'm sorry, part of the... Part of the "Pattern?"
NINA: I assumed you had clearance.
OLIVIA: I'm cleared to know whatever you're cleared to know, miss Sharp.
NINA: Apparently not.
But suffice to say that we reached the point where science and technology
have advanced at such an exponential rate for so long, it may be way
beyond our ability to regulate and control them. You should know what
you're getting into, Agent Dunham. I would say this to my own daughter: "Be careful and good luck."


The Same Old Story

Scene 3 – Nina / Broyles - The Oversight Committee




BROYLES: Thank you all for convening at this late hour. Forty-three minutes ago,
we were alerted to an incident at the Wallace Bromley Medical Center.
While the details are still coming in, it appears to be another anomaly
whose mysteries and origins remains the sole purpose of this committee.
I called you together tonight to introduce you to my new team, who will
now be responsible for investigating all these events. Hopefully, they
will have more success than our last. Walter Bishop, dubbed by his
contemporaries as a successor to Albert Einstein, worked for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency from the late '70s...
NINA: …until he was committed to the Saint Claire's mental institution for
manslaughter.
BROYLES: He was never convicted of that crime.
NINA: But in one of your own reports, you theorize that Bishop's previous work
may itself be the root of all these unexplained phenomenon.
BROYLES: Given that he's been hugging a padded cell for 17 years… I think we
can probably exclude him as a suspect, however, his knowledge makes
him uniquely qualified to assist our efforts while he remains in the legal custody
of his son Peter.
NINA: Yes, Peter Bishop, whose history of questionable business practices verge
on fraud, yet you propose giving him access to information that, if made public, would cause mass panic.
BROYLES: There's nothing we could tell him that he can't learn from his father or
deduce himself, with a 190 IQ.
NINA: What were you thinking when you recruited Olivia Dunham? An FBI Agent
who had an illicit affair with her partner, a man who turned out to be a traitor.
BROYLES: I was thinking that a woman who didn't hesitate to follow the evidence
and expose the man she loved at the cost of great personal pain and
embarrassment - must surely be worthy of our trust.



Scene 4 – Nina / Olivia at MD



NINA: I hope the ride was comfortable. I'm not a big fan of airplanes myself.
Despite the obvious intellectual understanding of their safety, my hands still
get sweaty on takeoff.
OLIVIA: Thank you again for your cooperation, we're very...
NINA: No need to thank me. You know, I've been thinking of you - meaning to
thank you for being a woman of your word and keeping Massive Dynamic
out of the press. I also wanted to say... you have my sincere condolences
on the loss of Agent Scott.
OLIVIA: What do you know about Agent Scott?
NINA: I know that he was your partner. I've lost people close to me. I know
how hard that can be. Not to mention the rumor about what he was
involved with. And, of course, the joy of being a female in a traditionally
male line of work. No doubt some of your male colleagues are assuming that
you two were intimate. (male assistant returns with case) Ah. The electronic
pulse camera. Travel safely, Agent Dunham.


Scene 5 – Nina / Olivia



OLIVIA: Thank you again for your help.
NINA: That's what I'm here for. I hope it served you well. I'd ask you what you wanted the camera for, but I respect your confidentiality.
OLIVIA: Well, we're grateful for your help.
NINA: Seems you're settling well into your new position.
OLIVIA: Excuse me?
NINA: I don't think a woman of your talents should be in public service.
OLIVIA: Oh? And where should I be?
NINA: Here, at Massive Dynamic.
OLIVIA: You're offering me a job?
NINA: Philip Broyles is a good man, and his record speaks for itself. Well,
I'm sure you got into law enforcement because you wanted to make
a difference. So consider this - Massive Dynamic is one of the ten largest economic entities in the world. Our weapons technologies shape
the Defense Department's strategies. Our investments sway the
markets and make or break presidential elections. Overseas, we have
responsibilities traditionally sacred to the state. The right to direct
private armies, to manage global affairs into stable equilibrium.
OLIVIA: You're serious.
NINA: Yes, I am. Not to mention, I believe a position here would speed your
effort to find answers.
OLIVIA: You're referring to ‘The Pattern’?
NINA: Among other things.


The Cure

Scene 6 – Nina / Peter – Equestrian Center




PETER: Excuse me. Miz Sharp. Hi, I’m Peter - -
NINA: Peter Bishop, Walter Bishop’s son. You’re not the only one who’s done
their homework. What can I do for you, Mister Bishop?
PETER: Well, I was hoping I could take a moment of your time.
NINA: Well… does Miz Dunham know you’re here?
PETER: No, no, she doesn’t know I’m here.
NINA: Well, Peter, suppose we take a walk. You’re suggesting that
Intrepus is conducting illegal drug trials with human beings. That is a
rather bold claim to make, Mister Bishop. How are you able
to substantiate your information?
PETER: Would you put it past them? Let’s assume for a second that what I’m
saying is true.
NINA: hmm.
PETER: Where would they do it? They wouldn’t risk using one of their
own testing facilities. It would have to be some place off the grid.
NINA: You know, you still look just the same as you did when you were a child.
Oh, I doubt you’ll remember, but you and I spent a good deal of
time together. Some of it right here. Your father and I were quite close
when we were both much younger. Now I have all kinds of information,
Peter, and some of it does me no good. Well, take the Aymara people,
for instance, of Central Peru. I know that the soil beneath their land
houses a naturally occurring metal alloy that is potentially hyper-conductive.
I also know that you have managed to successfully conduct
business with these and other tribal concerns, in parts of the world
traditionally resistant to development.
PETER: I’m sorry, Miz Sharp. I think I must’ve missed your question.
NINA: My question is, are you willing to make a bargain? I’d give you
the exact location you want, and in exchange, I get to come to
you someday, and you return the favor. No questions asked. So… Do we have a deal?


The Dreamscape

Scene 7 – Nina / Olivia at MD




NINA: Mark Young was a capable executive who displayed no signs of
emotional dysfunction. He was one of our more promising analysts, in fact.
Popular among his co-workers.
OLIVIA: So why do you think he would jump to his death?
NINA: I don't want to sound callous, Agent Dunham, but when
you run a company of over three hundred thousand employees, you
sometimes see a small percentage who succumb to the stress of their responsibilities, and, on occasion, the nature of our work.
OLIVIA: What do you mean by that? "The nature of our work"?
NINA: Oh, I was simply referring to the pressure to deliver results,
which the private sector seems to require. You would find it exhilarating.
OLIVIA: Are you trying to change the subject by offering me another job?
NINA: Well, I'd hate to sound like a suitor who's constantly
being turned down for a date.
OLIVIA: Well, just to be clear, as flattered as I am, I'm going to go
wherever this investigation takes me.
NINA: I would expect nothing less.
OLIVIA: And I would expect more from you than the polite appearance of
cooperation. You knew this man. He was a rising star in your company.
There must be something more you can tell me about him.
NINA: When one's domain includes the cutting edge of science, there is a
risk of exposure to ideas that aren't easy to reconcile--certain realities.
I'm sure you know what I mean, doing the work that you do. For some, it's too much to take.


Scene 8 – Nina / Olivia



NINA: Agent Dunham, I don't recall seeing you on my schedule today.
OLIVIA: Well, I don't need an appointment, Ms. Sharp.
NINA: It's all right.
OLIVIA: No matter where my investigations take me, they always come
back here.
NINA: Well, I don't know what you've heard since we last saw each other,
but I would hope that my cooperation would have garnered some
benefit of the doubt. Massive Dynamic has nothing to hide.
OLIVIA: See, I believe that your cooperation is an illusion. It never leads
to something tangible. It only leads to more questions. And that's the point,
isn't it? To keep us all asking questions? All just chasing our own tails?
NINA: Are you sure you're feeling well, Miss Dunham? I think perhaps
you're perceiving things that are entirely in your mind's eye.
OLIVIA: I wanted to thank you for all your job offers, and I'm sorry that
it's taken me so long to give you an answer, but I, um, I think I finally
have one.
NINA: Yes, it's obvious in your expression. Well, I understand that you've captured your suspect. I imagine that in an effort to seek an immunity
agreement from your agency, he's attempting to blame Massive Dynamic for all his foul deeds.
OLIVIA: Are you protecting your CEO, William Bell? Because if you are,
now is the time to tell me. Once our witness talks, you lose all
leverage in a plea.
NINA: I seriously doubt that your witness will be able to provide any
actionable evidence to implicate Massive Dynamic or William Bell of any wrongdoing.

Scene 10 – Nina / Broyles



NINA: Hello.
BROYLES: Olivia Dunham is missing.
NINA: What?... What do you mean missing?
BROYLES: It appears she has been abducted. – Need I even ask?
Are you there?
NINA: Yes. Yes. I am here… Frankly I resent the accusation.
BROYLES: I don’t make accusations, so let me be clear. If I find out --
NINA: -- Phillip! That’s enough. Now you know how I feel about Agent Dunham. Why would I want any harm to come to her? Now, what do we know about who may have taken her? – And why?


Ability

Scene 12 - Nina / Olivia




OLIVIA: Thank you so much for seeing me at such short notice.
NINA: As I said... I am always available to you, Olivia. What can I do?
OLIVIA: I need information on a drug called Cortexiphan.
NINA: It doesn't ring a bell... let me check.
OLIVIA: Is everything alright?
NINA: Uh... my hand... it's been acting-up. I need to have it looked at.
Oh yes, I recall this. 'Cortexiphan' - it was part of a clinical trial of a drug
that Doctor Bell created in 'eighty-one.
OLIVIA: What is it? -- If you don't mind?
NINA: Doctor Bell theorized that the human mind, at birth, is infinitely capable...
and that every force it encounters; social, physical, intellectual... is the beginning
of the process he referred to as 'limitation' - a diminishing of that potential.
OLIVIA: And Cortexiphan?
NINA: ... it was meant to 'limit' that 'limitation' - to prevent the natural shrinking
of that brain power.
OLIVIA: To prevent, not undo?
NINA: Meaning...
OLIVIA: That the drug was administered to children?
NINA: Yes... the drugs were extensively animal tested. They were harmless to the
children who received them. Unfortunately, they were also unsuccessful - so
Doctor Bell abandoned his research on Cortexiphan in 1983.
OLIVIA: And where were the trials?
NINA: Doctor Bell conducted the trials himself at Ohio State University,
Wooster Campus.
OLIVIA: Nowhere else?
NINA: No... why? If I may ask?
OLIVIA: Nothing -- it's good to know.

Blair calls Alt-Nina Meana

Quote:
fringe: Blair brown teases ‘the end of all things’ and finally meeting nina’s double

think you were surprised by the final moments of fringe’s “a better human being” when a second nina sharp finally made her way to our television screens? You weren’t alone!

“it was really a nice surprise, because i didn’t know about it until i got the script and went, ‘a ha!’” blair brown (nina) laughed. “the way we work is the writers always have something in mind, and it’s always more fun to just wait and see what shows up…it was a great thrill [to get the script for "a better human being"]. It was like ‘all right! Here we go!’”

it may have made some fans impatient that it has taken until season 4 to meet the other version of nina, but brown wasn’t worried abut the delay.

“i knew they had something in store,” she said. “they don’t have us all here for no reason. It’s very interesting now how it unfolds, not at all the way i thought it would be. It’s not as benign a tale as some of the other alternates. But what’s interesting is the alternate world is just rougher. Walternate is harder, fauxlivia is harder, it’s a different world. It’s not as easy a world — it’s hard to think of our world being a kind world, but given the alternative, it is.”

and what has that rougher world done to this new nina?

“it was very curious, because at first i thought, as has always been the question of first nina — we call alt-nina, meana, because she seems to be very mean — is she a force for good or not?” brown teased. “i think we’ve discovered in her world and in her timeline, there was no william bell. So she…wasn’t included. She wasn’t at the party with all of the boys, the science boys. So she has a different personality because she’s been an outsider all the time. It’s a really interesting thing to play. I love the fact that they look exactly the same, at least for a while.”

as for tonight’s episode, brown hinted viewers will be taken on a ride as they try and figure out the complexities of the two ninas.

“it keeps you guessing all the way through,” she shared. “it keeps you guessing all the way through about who is where. What’s going on? Who’s telling the truth and who is acting? I think it’s very curious to have an alternate that passes…at least so far.”

uh oh…

Nina Sharp Favorite Season One Scenes - Part One


Round 6

Pilot


Scene 4 – Nina / Olivia at MD



NINA: I hope the ride was comfortable. I'm not a big fan of airplanes myself.
Despite the obvious intellectual understanding of their safety, my hands still
get sweaty on takeoff.
OLIVIA: Thank you again for your cooperation, we're very...
NINA: No need to thank me. You know, I've been thinking of you - meaning to
thank you for being a woman of your word and keeping Massive Dynamic
out of the press. I also wanted to say... you have my sincere condolences
on the loss of Agent Scott.
OLIVIA: What do you know about Agent Scott?
NINA: I know that he was your partner. I've lost people close to me. I know
how hard that can be. Not to mention the rumor about what he was
involved with. And, of course, the joy of being a female in a traditionally
male line of work. No doubt some of your male colleagues are assuming that
you two were intimate. (male assistant returns with case) Ah. The electronic
pulse camera. Travel safely, Agent Dunham.


Scene 5 – Nina / Olivia



OLIVIA: Thank you again for your help.
NINA: That's what I'm here for. I hope it served you well. I'd ask you what you wanted the camera for, but I respect your confidentiality.
OLIVIA: Well, we're grateful for your help.
NINA: Seems you're settling well into your new position.
OLIVIA: Excuse me?
NINA: I don't think a woman of your talents should be in public service.
OLIVIA: Oh? And where should I be?
NINA: Here, at Massive Dynamic.
OLIVIA: You're offering me a job?
NINA: Philip Broyles is a good man, and his record speaks for itself. Well,
I'm sure you got into law enforcement because you wanted to make
a difference. So consider this - Massive Dynamic is one of the ten largest economic entities in the world. Our weapons technologies shape
the Defense Department's strategies. Our investments sway the
markets and make or break presidential elections. Overseas, we have
responsibilities traditionally sacred to the state. The right to direct
private armies, to manage global affairs into stable equilibrium.
OLIVIA: You're serious.
NINA: Yes, I am. Not to mention, I believe a position here would speed your
effort to find answers.
OLIVIA: You're referring to ‘The Pattern’?
NINA: Among other things.


The Cure

Scene 6 – Nina / Peter – Equestrian Center




PETER: Excuse me. Miz Sharp. Hi, I’m Peter - -
NINA: Peter Bishop, Walter Bishop’s son. You’re not the only one who’s done
their homework. What can I do for you, Mister Bishop?
PETER: Well, I was hoping I could take a moment of your time.
NINA: Well… does Miz Dunham know you’re here?
PETER: No, no, she doesn’t know I’m here.
NINA: Well, Peter, suppose we take a walk. You’re suggesting that
Intrepus is conducting illegal drug trials with human beings. That is a
rather bold claim to make, Mister Bishop. How are you able
to substantiate your information?
PETER: Would you put it past them? Let’s assume for a second that what I’m
saying is true.
NINA: hmm.
PETER: Where would they do it? They wouldn’t risk using one of their
own testing facilities. It would have to be some place off the grid.
NINA: You know, you still look just the same as you did when you were a child.
Oh, I doubt you’ll remember, but you and I spent a good deal of
time together. Some of it right here. Your father and I were quite close
when we were both much younger. Now I have all kinds of information,
Peter, and some of it does me no good. Well, take the Aymara people,
for instance, of Central Peru. I know that the soil beneath their land
houses a naturally occurring metal alloy that is potentially hyper-conductive.
I also know that you have managed to successfully conduct
business with these and other tribal concerns, in parts of the world
traditionally resistant to development.
PETER: I’m sorry, Miz Sharp. I think I must’ve missed your question.
NINA: My question is, are you willing to make a bargain? I’d give you
the exact location you want, and in exchange, I get to come to
you someday, and you return the favor. No questions asked. So… Do we have a deal?


The Dreamscape

Scene 7 – Nina / Olivia at MD




NINA: Mark Young was a capable executive who displayed no signs of
emotional dysfunction. He was one of our more promising analysts, in fact.
Popular among his co-workers.
OLIVIA: So why do you think he would jump to his death?
NINA: I don't want to sound callous, Agent Dunham, but when
you run a company of over three hundred thousand employees, you
sometimes see a small percentage who succumb to the stress of their responsibilities, and, on occasion, the nature of our work.
OLIVIA: What do you mean by that? "The nature of our work"?
NINA: Oh, I was simply referring to the pressure to deliver results,
which the private sector seems to require. You would find it exhilarating.
OLIVIA: Are you trying to change the subject by offering me another job?
NINA: Well, I'd hate to sound like a suitor who's constantly
being turned down for a date.
OLIVIA: Well, just to be clear, as flattered as I am, I'm going to go
wherever this investigation takes me.
NINA: I would expect nothing less.
OLIVIA: And I would expect more from you than the polite appearance of
cooperation. You knew this man. He was a rising star in your company.
There must be something more you can tell me about him.
NINA: When one's domain includes the cutting edge of science, there is a
risk of exposure to ideas that aren't easy to reconcile--certain realities.
I'm sure you know what I mean, doing the work that you do. For some, it's too much to take.


Scene 8 – Nina / Olivia



NINA: Agent Dunham, I don't recall seeing you on my schedule today.
OLIVIA: Well, I don't need an appointment, Ms. Sharp.
NINA: It's all right.
OLIVIA: No matter where my investigations take me, they always come
back here.
NINA: Well, I don't know what you've heard since we last saw each other,
but I would hope that my cooperation would have garnered some
benefit of the doubt. Massive Dynamic has nothing to hide.
OLIVIA: See, I believe that your cooperation is an illusion. It never leads
to something tangible. It only leads to more questions. And that's the point,
isn't it? To keep us all asking questions? All just chasing our own tails?
NINA: Are you sure you're feeling well, Miss Dunham? I think perhaps
you're perceiving things that are entirely in your mind's eye.
OLIVIA: I wanted to thank you for all your job offers, and I'm sorry that
it's taken me so long to give you an answer, but I, um, I think I finally
have one.
NINA: Yes, it's obvious in your expression. Well, I understand that you've captured your suspect. I imagine that in an effort to seek an immunity
agreement from your agency, he's attempting to blame Massive Dynamic for all his foul deeds.
OLIVIA: Are you protecting your CEO, William Bell? Because if you are,
now is the time to tell me. Once our witness talks, you lose all
leverage in a plea.
NINA: I seriously doubt that your witness will be able to provide any
actionable evidence to implicate Massive Dynamic or William Bell of any wrongdoing.


Safe

Scene 10 – Nina / Broyles



NINA: Hello.
BROYLES: Olivia Dunham is missing.
NINA: What?... What do you mean missing?
BROYLES: It appears she has been abducted. – Need I even ask?
Are you there?
NINA: Yes. Yes. I am here… Frankly I resent the accusation.
BROYLES: I don’t make accusations, so let me be clear. If I find out --
NINA: -- Phillip! That’s enough. Now you know how I feel about Agent Dunham. Why would I want any harm to come to her? Now, what do we know about who may have taken her? – And why?


Ability

Scene 12 - Nina / Olivia




OLIVIA: Thank you so much for seeing me at such short notice.
NINA: As I said... I am always available to you, Olivia. What can I do?
OLIVIA: I need information on a drug called Cortexiphan.
NINA: It doesn't ring a bell... let me check.
OLIVIA: Is everything alright?
NINA: Uh... my hand... it's been acting-up. I need to have it looked at.
Oh yes, I recall this. 'Cortexiphan' - it was part of a clinical trial of a drug
that Doctor Bell created in 'eighty-one.
OLIVIA: What is it? -- If you don't mind?
NINA: Doctor Bell theorized that the human mind, at birth, is infinitely capable...
and that every force it encounters; social, physical, intellectual... is the beginning
of the process he referred to as 'limitation' - a diminishing of that potential.
OLIVIA: And Cortexiphan?
NINA: ... it was meant to 'limit' that 'limitation' - to prevent the natural shrinking
of that brain power.
OLIVIA: To prevent, not undo?
NINA: Meaning...
OLIVIA: That the drug was administered to children?
NINA: Yes... the drugs were extensively animal tested. They were harmless to the
children who received them. Unfortunately, they were also unsuccessful - so
Doctor Bell abandoned his research on Cortexiphan in 1983.
OLIVIA: And where were the trials?
NINA: Doctor Bell conducted the trials himself at Ohio State University,
Wooster Campus.
OLIVIA: Nowhere else?
NINA: No... why? If I may ask?
OLIVIA: Nothing -- it's good to know.
