Richard Strickland is an executive who works at a secret government research facility in the 60s. He was in charge of studying a mysterious amphibious creature that was held captive in the facility. The creature now has been stolen and Strickland’s superior, General Hoyt, considers him responsible. Strickland is interrogating Delilah, a janitor who works in the facility. He has a hunch that she knows where the creature is. He tells her the story of Samson to make her understand that he is ready to do whatever it takes to find the creature. Good 1-2 minute monologue.

Richard Strickland: “The story about Samson. I never told you how it ends. After the Philistines torture him and blind him...Samson asks God for the strength he needs. And at the last minute, he is spared. And the Lord gives him his strength back, one last time. And he holds...the columns of the temple with his powerful arms and he crushes them….And he brings the whole building down on the Philistines. He dies but he gets every single one of those motherfuckers. That is his will!!! Now, do you know what that particular story means...for us. Delilah? It means if you know something you’re not telling me you’re gonna tell me. Either before or after I bring this particular temple...down upon our heads.”
