Twelve Monkeys

Question: What does the French soldier scream at Cole before he shoots him?

Brian Katcher

Answer: Cole is screaming "Stop!" So you can't hear what the soldier is saying. If you meanall of it its in the line of asking what he is doing there, calling the captain to have a look, ask him where his clothes are and telling him to speak French.

Question: There are marked similarities between Cole's present day asylum and his future world, such as the showers he receives, and the scientists/doctors. What is the significance of these parallels? Do they have a hidden meaning?

Answer: It is meant to draw similarities between the treatment of the mentally ill and convicted felons. Quite often, even today, the mentally ill are housed and treated in facilities that are little better (for quality of life or prospects of rehabilitation) than prisons.

Continuity mistake: When Cole (Willis) asks Dr. Railly (Stowe) to turn up the radio as they are driving to Philadelphia, the camera cuts to her hand working the radio. The numbers on the radio clearly move as if being tuned, not the volume being raised.
