Kate Winslet tracks down the man infected on the bus in Contagion

Kate Winslet tracks down the man infected on the bus in Contagion

Is there anyone else who might have had contact with her?

This was everyone.

Aaron Barns did.

Barns, he worked on another floor.

There were documents she needed to sign. He picked her up from the airport.

He picked her up from the airport?


Where is he?


Hello. Mr. Barns?


This is Dr. Mears, from the Centers for Disease Control. Hi. I believe you may have had contact with Beth Emhoff last week.

Yeah, I picked her up at the airport. What’s this about?

And how are you feeling today?

Pretty crappy to be honest. My head is pounding. I probably think I have some sort of bug.

Where are you right now?

On the bus. I'm heading to work.

I'd like you to get off immediately.

Wait, what? What's going on?

He's on the bus.


Where? Where's the bus Aaron?

Lake and Lindale. Can you tell me what's going on?

I really need you to get off that bus. It's quite possible you've come in contact with an infectious disease and that you're highly contagious. Do you understand? I want you to get off now. Just get away from other people.

I'm getting off. No, I heard you.

Don't talk to anyone. Don't touch anyone. That's the most important thing. We'll send somebody to meet the bus.


I'm on my way to you now Aaron.
