Bridget Jones's Baby script
Synopsis: Breaking up with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) leaves Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) over 40 and single again. Feeling that she has everything under control, Jones decides to focus on her career as a top news producer. Suddenly, her love life comes back from the dead when she meets a dashing and handsome American named Jack (Patrick Dempsey). Things couldn't be better, until Bridget discovers that she is pregnant. Now, the befuddled mom-to-be must figure out if the proud papa is Mark or Jack.

Bridget, Shazzer and Jude all laugh, they can’t help

themselves. The rest of the congregation look at them

disapprovingly.

Mark and Bridget make fleeting, but definite eye contact, as

he catches her mid gorgeous, life-affirming laugh.

Bridget then looks sadly at the portrait of Daniel at the

front.

MINISTER:

Would anybody else like to say a

few words?

No one else in the congregation stands up. After a nudge from

Shazzer, Bridget gets up.

BRIDGET:

Daniel was a man who touched many

of us, here today, including me.

There is a small, slightly awkward pause, but she continues

unabated.

BRIDGET (CONT’D)

Right now, if Daniel were here, he

would have told me to ‘Shut up,

Jones’ and he would’ve been right.

All I really need to say is, I miss

you, dear Daniel. We all do. Thank

you.
