4 JP: There is no one.
5 BW: Mommy...
6 JP: No, I'm right here...look at me. I'm right here when you...(UI)...I've been saying that all
7   along.
8 BW: But, but...
9 JP: I'm right here with you.
10 BW: I didn't...I...whatever I did to George...I did it because I wanted to make him the best.
11 JP: The best at what?
12 NIS: The best at whatever he had to be.
13 JP: ...(UI)...
14 BW: Do you now what happens to people that come in second?
15 JP: Yeah.
16 BW: Do you know what happens to people that come in second?
17 JP: What happens?
18 BW: They're dead.
19 JP: That's right.
20 BW: And I love my son and you may not...and you may think I'm the most horrible person in
21   the world.
1 JP: You had to make him best, didn't you? The best in everything. So sometimes that's best
2   cock sucker, isn't it?
3 BW: No...
4 JP: Yes. Yeah. Isn't it? Best with a knife. Best in stimulating a woman. Best with his
5   tongue.
6 BW: Everything...
7 JP: Yeah.
8 BW: I'm sure.
9 JP: Yeah.
10 BW: I'm not saying...I don't remember it. I'm not saying...
11 JP: Of course not! We wouldn't want to remember and work on it.
12 BW: I don't remember it now. I'm not saying I won't remember. I don't remember all those
13   things now. But I'm willing to acknowledge that, that you can, if you can imagine, you
14   can....I probably did it.
15 JP: Can you imagine?
16 BW: I...
17 JP: What's it mean to be best in the cult?
18 BW: It means you...(UI)...
19 JP: Start using more words. I do.
20 BW: It mean that you're not normal.
21 JP: What does it mean? Real words.
1 BW: ...(UI)...
2 JP: What's it mean for a 10-year-old to be the best in the cult?
3 BW: Mmm...
4 JP: You tell me.
5 BW: It means that George...
6 JP: Look at me...
7 BW: expected to do...
8 JP: Don't use bullshit words with me! Tell me! Don't clean it up...all pretty language. I don't
9   want to hear it. What does it really mean to be best in the cult at age 10?
10 BW: It means means
11 JP: What's it mean?
12 BW: It means that you're, however they can use you...they can use you with animals...
13 JP: Use you how? Go on. Go on.
14 BW: ...And they can use you with means...
15 JP: Uh-huh...
16 BW: ...sucking...
17 JP: Uh-huh...means what?
18 BW: It means stimulating the animal...
19 JP: Uh-huh.
20 BW: And means...
21 JP: Stimulating the animal means sucking on the dog. And licking the dogs' penis. Is that
1   right? Let's talk about what it is that I hear from people about what children that age do in
2   the cult. They're trained by monkeys by then, aren't they? Come on. Let's use real
3   words with each other.
4 BW: ...(UI)...and he couldn't do that and he turned, and he, then he just shrugged. And that's
5   a sign of weakness and that only makes it worse. The weak ones get it the worst. The
6   more, the weaker you are...
7 JP: And you were the good cult mother and made him the best. And I understand that. And
8   I understand that he's stuck in the system. But that was what was happening, and that was
9   reality.
