Bottle Rocket script
Bottle Rocket (1996)
Synopsis: In Wes Anderson's first feature film, Anthony (Luke Wilson) has just been released from a mental hospital, only to find his wacky friend Dignan (Owen C. Wilson) determined to begin an outrageous crime spree. After recruiting their neighbor, Bob (Robert Musgrave), the team embarks on a road trip in search of Dignan's previous boss, Mr. Henry (James Caan). But the more they learn, the more they realize that they do not know the first thing about crime.

DIGNAN:

See, your mind is very good with

the more mechanical details.

Whereas my strength would be --

A good-looking WOMAN about forty-five years old interrupts

them.

WOMAN:

Can I use your Tabasco?

ANTHONY:

Sure.

Anthony hands her a bottle of Tabasco off the counter. She

walks away. Down the counter.

ANTHONY:

You don't see many women who like

Tabasco.

They watch her for a minute. Dignan looks away.

ANTHONY:

She's really kind of hot.

DIGNAN:

(looks back at her, nods)

She's an attractive older woman.

EXT. BOB'S HOUSE. DAY

A huge house with a wide lawn. BOB, who's about twenty-six,

wearing black jeans and a V-neck T-shirt, is spraying down a

battered 1972 Mercedes with a garden hose. He's got his

shirt off and a towel around his neck. Dignan has an

expression of intense concentration as he looks at the car.

BOB:

Well, what do you think?

DIGNAN:

I don't know, Bob. What about one

of those?

Dignan points to a new BMW and a Lexus in front of the garage.

BOB:

I'm not allowed to drive those.

DIGNAN:

Not even for emergencies?

BOB:

(a little angry)

No.

DIGNAN:

I thought your parents were in Italy.

BOB:

They are.
