[At a Nazi concentration camp in occupied Poland]
Klaus Schmidt: [in German] Understand this, Erik... these Nazis, I'm not like them. Genes are the key, yes? But their goals? Blue eyes? Blonde hair? Pathetic. [he gives him a chocolate bar] Eat the chocolate. It's good. Want some?
Erik Lehnsherr: I want to see my mama.
Schmidt: Genes are the key that unlocks the door to a new age, Erik. A new future for mankind. Evolution. You know what I'm talking about? It's a simple thing I ask of you. [gestures to a small Nazi coin on the desk] A little coin is nothing compared to a big gate. Is it? [Erik attempts to move the coin but fails]
Lehnsherr: I tried, Herr Doctor. I can't... I don't... It's impossible. [this displeases Schmidt]
Schmidt: The one thing I can say for the Nazis is their methods seem to produce results. I'm sorry, Erik. [rings bell to summon soldiers who come in with his mother]
Lehnsherr: Mama!
Mother: My darling. [she embraces him and speaks in a hushed voice] How are you?
Schmidt: [he gestures to the soldiers to hold her back] Here's what we're going to do. I'm going to count to three... [he opens a drawer and pulls out a gun] ...and you're going to move the coin. You don't move the coin, I pull the trigger. [he points the gun at his mother] Understand? [Erik attempts to move it again without success with a sense of urgency] One.
Lehnsherr: [he looks to his mother] Mama.
Mother: You can do it.
Schmidt: Two. [he grows impatient]
Mother: Everything is alright. [Erik concentrates even harder]
Schmidt: Three. [he shoots and kills Erik's mother; trauma angers Erik to crush a small metal bell] Yes. Wonderful. [sees Erik crush a metal filing cabinet] Excellent. [Erik loses control and crushes the soldiers' helmets on their heads before sending all metal objects across the room. Schmidt consoles him after he crises] Outstanding, Erik. So we unlock your gift with anger. Anger and pain. You and me... we're going to have a lot of fun together. [he leaves the Nazi coin in Erik's hand and he leaves]
