10 Things I Hate About You script
Synopsis: Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) is beautiful, smart and quite abrasive to most of her fellow teens, meaning that she doesn't attract many boys. Unfortunately for her younger sister, Bianca (Larisa Oleynik), house rules say that she can't date until Kat has a boyfriend, so strings are pulled to set the dour damsel up for a romance. Soon Kat crosses paths with handsome new arrival Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger). Will Kat let her guard down enough to fall for the effortlessly charming Patrick?

CAMERON:

MISS PERKY:

deviants to see.

Cameron rises to leave and makes eye contact with PATRICK

VERONA, a sullen-looking bad ass senior who waits outside Ms

Perky's door. His slouch and smirk let us know how cool he

is.

Miss Perky looks down at her file and up at Patrick

MISS PERKY:

Patrick Verona. I see we're making our

visits a weekly ritual.

She gives him a withering glance. He answers with a charming

smile.

PATRICK:

I missed you.

MISS PERKY:

It says here you exposed yourself to a

group of freshmen girls.

PATRICK:

It was a bratwurst. I was eating

lunch.

MISS PERKY:

With the teeth of your zipper?

She motions for Patrick to enter her office and Cameron

shuffles out the door, bumping into MICHAEL ECKMAN, a lanky,

brainy senior who will either end up a politician or game

show host.

MICHAEL:

You the new guy?

CAMERON:

So they tell me...
