I also think that he knowingly lies to himself. "but how" you say "you see he's got this condition..." ( ). Anyways, all kidding aside, as he explains in the movie (Leonard AND teddy both say this) he has a different kind of memory disorder than Sammy. He can learn through habit. So I'd like to submit this: he has killed more than once, and through that repetition he has learned that he MUST lie to himself in order to continue living.

However, just to put a spin on it to make everyone have a break down; what if he doesn't want to kill anymore, and realizes after repetition that the only way out of it is to kill teddy? This would also make sense, seeing that teddy is the one giving him his "evidence".

I dunno, I just confused myself there.

Anyone else have any way out take on the movie? (or on my theories)

aside: this is why I love the movie, it lives on even after you've finished watching it in the conversations!
I think that when he says "he learns through repitition" he means his screwed up note and picture system. Which obviously has major flaws. And I think that Teddy was only one of many to use Lenny to kill or harm others, Im just not sure why the cops never found out.............did Teddy carry that much weight down at headquarters???

I think the idea that you are pushed to accept is that the police really don't care if a known drug dealer gets killed, I think they may have even said that in the movie. My memeory grows dim.
