EXT. DRIVEWAY. DAY.

She flies out the door, slamming it behind her, runs off the

porch (all this has been one continuous movement since she

left the window, in great haste) and continues quickly into

the driveway. Four feet away from CLYDE, she stops on a

dime. They stand there, looking at each other, smiling the

same challenge. For a few seconds, no one speaks, then:

BONNIE:

(putting her on)

Ain't you ashamed? Tryin' to steal

an old lady's automobile.

3.

CLYDE:

(with the same put-on)

I been thinkin' about buyin' me one.

BONNIE:

Bull. You ain't got money for

dinner, let alone buy no car.

CLYDE:

(still the battle of

wits going on)

Now I got enough money for cokes,

and since it don't look like you're

gonna invite me inside-

BONNIE:

You'd steal the dining room table

if I did.

CLYDE:

(he moves from his spot)

Come to town with me, then. How'd

that be?

BONNIE:

(starting to walk

onto the sidewalk)

Goin' to work anyway.

EXT. STREET. MOVING SHOT. DAY.

The camera tracks. It is a hot Texas afternoon, all white

light and glare. As they walk the block to town in this

scene, their manner of mutual impudence is still pervading.

CLYDE:

Goin' to work, huh? What do you do?

BONNIE:

None of your business.

CLYDE:

(pretending to give

it serious thought)

I bet you're a...movie star!

(thinks)

No...A lady mechanic?...No...A

maid?-

BONNIE:

(really offended by that)

What do you think I am?

4.

CLYDE:

(right on the nose)

A waitress.

BONNIE:

(slightly startled by

his accuracy, anxious

to get back now that

he is temporarily

one-up)
