Dogma script
Dogma (1999)
Synopsis: Two fallen angels who were ejected from paradise find themselves banned in Wisconsin. They are now headed for New Jersey where they find a loophole that can get them back into heaven. The only catch is that it will destroy humanity. A group bands together to stop them.

(beat; shocked; off her cassock)

What have I been doing with my life...?'.

LOKI:

Don't look back. Just get out there and taste life.

(off donation can)

Leave this for the unenlightened. Poverty is for the gullible - it's

another way the church is trying to control you. You take that money you've

been collecting for your parish reconstruction and go get yourself a nice

piece of ass. You deserve it.

The Nun nods at him, and saunters off, obviously grappling with something.

A passerby tries to stick money in her can, but she yanks it away. Loki

faces the proper direction in his seat and plops down beside the

still-transfixed Bartleby.

BARTLEBY:

(looking OC)

Here's what I don't get about you: you know for a fact that there is a God.

You've been in his presence, he's talked to you personally. And yet I just

heard you claim to be an atheist.

LOKI:

C'mon man - you know I don't believe any of that shit I was telling her. I

just like to fuck with the clergy; keep 'em on their toes. When her head

stops spinning, she'll be facing the way of the Just again. But oh. will

she have a bunch to confess.

(looks around)

Now here's what I don't get about you: why do you feel the need to come

here all the time?

BARTLEBY:

(off travelers)

I like to watch. This is humanity at it's best. Look at them.

A reunited FAMILY share a group hug and move on, making way for two young

LOVERS to embrace and kiss passionately.

OC BARTLEBY:

All that tension, all that anger and mistrust, forgotten for one perfect

moment when they come off that plane. See those two? The guy doesn't even

know that the girl cheated on him while he was away.
