Twelve Monkeys

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.

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.

Trivia: During the phone call between Kathrine and Professor, we can see the roof of laboratory. It is made of ordinary aluminium or plastic blocks, like roofs in offices. This kind of roof can transport air. Persons behind glass are doing something with danger microbes and they are in protective suits. Professor and his assistants, before glass, don't wear that suit, but the holes in roof can transfer microbes to their part of the laboratory. (01:27:35)
