American Psycho script
Synopsis: In New York City in 1987, a handsome, young urban professional, Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), lives a second life as a gruesome serial killer by night. The cast is filled by the detective (Willem Dafoe), the fiance (Reese Witherspoon), the mistress (Samantha Mathis), the coworker (Jared Leto), and the secretary (Chloë Sevigny). This is a biting, wry comedy examining the elements that make a man a monster.

McDERMOTT

Last week I picked up this Vassar chick-

VAN PATTEN:

Oh God, I was there. I don't need to hear this

story again.

McDERMOTT

But I never told you what happened afterwards. So

okay, I pick up this Vassar chick at Tunnel-hot number, big

tits, great legs, this chick was a little hardbody-and so I

buy her a couple of champagne kirs and she's in the city on

spring break and she's practically blowing me in the

Chandelier Room and so I take her back to my place-

BATEMAN:

Whoa, wait. May I ask where Pamela is during all

this?

McDERMOTT

Oh fuck you. I want a blowjob, Bate-man. I want a chick

who's gonna let me-

VAN PATTEN:

(Putting his hands over his ears)

I don't want to hear this. He's going to say something

disgusting.

McDERMOTT

You prude. Listen, we're not gonna invest in a co-op

together or jet down to Saint Bart's. I just want some

chick whose face I can sit on for thirty, forty minutes.

Price throws a cigar at McDermott, who catches it.

McDERMOTT

Anyway, so we're back at my place and listen to

this. She's had enough champagne by now to get a fucking

rhino tipsy, and get this-

VAN PATTEN:

She let you fuck her without a condom?

McDERMOTT

This is a Vassar girl. She's not from Queens. She

would only-are you ready?

(Dramatic pause)

She would only give me a handjob, and get this...she kept

her glove on.

The men sit in shocked, horrified silence.

ALL IN UNISON Never date a Vassar girl.

EXT. TUNNEL NIGHTCLUB - NIGHT

The limo pulls up to the sidewalk outside the Tunnel.

McDermott holds the door open for a passing HOMELESS MAN,

who looks confused.

McDERMOTT

I suppose he doesn't want the car. Price, ask

him if he takes American Express.

PRICE:

(Offering card)

You take Amex, dude?
