The clip request for exorcism from The Exorcist (1973)
You're convinced that it's genuine?
I don't know.
No, not really, I suppose.
But I have made a prudent judgment that it meets the conditions set down in the Ritual.
You would want to do the exorcism yourself?.
It might be best to have a man with experience.
Someone who's spent time in the foreign missions.
I understand, Your Excellency.
Let's see who's around.
In the meantime, I'll call you as soon as I know.
Thank you, Your Excellency.
Well, he does know the background.
I doubt there's any danger in just having him assist.
There should be a psychiatrist present, anyway.
What about the exorcist?
Have you any ideas?
How about Lankester Merrin?
I had a notion he was in lraq.
I read he was working on a dig near Nineveh.
You're right, but he's finished.
He came back three or four months ago. He's at Woodstock now.
What's he doing there, teaching?
He's working on another book.
Don't you think he's too old, Tom? How's his health?
He must be all right. He's still running around digging up tombs.
-Besides, he's had experience. -I didn't know that.
Ten, 12 years ago, I think, in Africa.
The exorcism supposedly lasted months. I heard it damn near killed him.
