The Mad Scientist is the two-hundred fifteenth video in the lonelygirl15 video series. The gang tries but fails to find Dr. Isaac Gilman at the Wyman Foundation. Sarah and Jonas fight.


(Music plays and Sarah points the camera at Jonas and Daniel as they are all in the car. She then turns the camera to herself.)

Sarah: After Taylor cracked the barcode, Daniel found some name of a research scientist or something in the box that Bree's dad left.

Daniel: Isaac Gilman- he's a scientist.

Sarah: So we're going to some research institute in San Diego to try and track down the mad scientist named Gilman.

Daniel: He's not a mad scientist. He's a geneticist.

Sarah: What if he is mad?!

(Daniel films Sarah and Jonas at a gas station. It shows Sarah pumping gas; Jonas standing by a traffic pole looking sad; Sarah bobbing her head, most likely to music; a closeup of Jonas; Sarah's face through a car window; and lastly another closeup of Jonas with his arm now to his head.)

Sarah: Here we are at the Wyman Foundation. Inside those walls, could be our mad, genetic scientist.

Jonas: Could you please stop with the "mad scientist" crap, please?

Sarah: It's a joke.

Jonas: Yeah, well, this is important.

Daniel: Dude, she's just keepin' it light.

Jonas: Well, why does everything have to be light, man? Look, there's a guy up there, who might be able to help us help Bree. Do you not get what's going on?!

Sarah: I get it, I just...

Jonas: No, I don't think you do! I don't think you do.

Sarah: No, I get it.

Jonas: Yeah, make another joke.

Sarah: I get it.

(The camera shows Daniel putting on a doctor uniform with sped up dialogue in background.)

Jonas: You think you can pull this off again?

Daniel: Yeah.

(Very fast speed-up on Daniel putting on uniform.)

Daniel: How's this?

Jonas: (Fixes a fold in Daniel's coat) It's good.

Daniel: (As if rehearsing) I have a meeting with Dr. Isaac Gilman.

Jonas: Good luck buddy.

Daniel: Thanks. See ya.

(The camera shows Daniel in a grassy area, most likely the buildings courtyard.)

Jonas: Looks like Sarah's trimmin' the lawn. You, uh, you trimmin' the lawn there, skippy?

Sarah: Um, I'm sorry about before.

Jonas: Ah, yeah, you know what? Forget it.

Sarah: It's just um, I know this must suck for you guys. Huggy and mushy just... aren't my style. I'm sorry about what happened with Bree.

Jonas: Thanks.

(The camera shows Daniel jogging to car in uniform.)

Jonas: Here comes our Dr. Danny.

(Daniel enters the car.)

Jonas: What happened man?

Daniel: Let's go.

Sarah: What's wrong?

Daniel: I'll tell you later. Let's go, let's go. Just, let's go.

Daniel: He's not here; the receptionist had no idea who I was talking about. And she called human resources and they asked me to leave the property immediately.

Jonas: What does that mean? Does that mean he quit?

Daniel: It means that they just said that there is no Isaac Gilman with the Wyman Foundation. That's it.

Jonas: Fuck! (Slamming the car door) We're screwed! Man, we got nothing else! If anybody out there knows this Isaac Gilman, please get in touch with us. Fuck!


  • This is the second time Daniel has impersonated a doctor, the first time was in Let's Play Doctor. However, no doctor would wear scrubs to a meeting in a place he doesn't work in, so it's not surprising the receptionist didn't believe his story.
  • None of the locations in this video are actually in San Diego; they are all in Calabasas, CA, which is north of Los Angeles. The locations are the Union 76 station on Calabasas Road, The Commons on Calabasas Road, and an office park on Murearu Road. Also, the first office building shown is not the same building that Daniel later enters. It appears Daniel gets in & out of his scrubs in front of a different building than the Wyman Foundation building.
  • During the sped up parts, slowing the audio reveals a somewhat mundane conversation: "Here you go." "Can you hold that?" "Sure." And then later, Jonas adds to Daniel, "You gotta be taller."
  • Sarah has cap fever.
