Synopsis: Dumb and Dumber is a 1994 American comedy film starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. It was written by the Farrelly brothers and Bennett Yellin, and is the Farrelly brothers' directorial debut. The film tells the story of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, two unintelligent friends from Providence, Rhode Island who set out on a cross-country trip to Aspen, Colorado to return a briefcase full of money to its owner, only to be pursued by a group of criminals who are after the briefcase.

MARY:

Hello.

(beat)

I'll be just a minute�

As Mary steps back inside, Lloyd takes out a tiny can of Binaca. He sprays his mouth, under his

arms, his hair, behind his ears�

CUT TO:

INT. LIMO - DAY

Lloyd is driving and Mary is in the back, looking out the window, lost in thought. She's got a

BRIEFCASE resting on her lap and she fingers the leather nervously. Lloyd keeps glancing at her

in the rear-view mirror, but for a moment he is speechless. Then:

LLOYD:

Why you going to the airport? Flying

somewhere?

MARY:

(dead-pan)

How'd you guess?

LLOYD:

Well, I saw your luggage, then when I

noticed the airline ticket, I put two

and two together.

(beat)

So where you heading?

MARY:

Aspen.

LLOYD:

Oh, you're gonna love it. I hear

California's beautiful this time of

year.

Mary looks back out the window and Lloyd sneaks another glance.

LLOYD:

Name's Christmas. Lloyd Christmas.

MARY:

I'm Mary.

ON LLOYD - we can almost see his mind work. He's desperate to impress her.

LLOYD:

Uh, this isn't my real job, you know.

It's only temporary.

MARY:

Oh?

LLOYD:

Yeah, you see, my friend Harry and I

are saving up our money so we can

open our own pet store.

MARY:

That's nice.

LLOYD:

(smiling)

I got worms.

MARY:

I beg your pardon?

LLOYD:

That's what we're gonna call it: I

Got Worms. We're gonna specialize in

selling worm farms � you know, like

ant farms. A lot of people don't

realize that worms make much better

pets than ants. They're quiet,

affectionate, they don't bite, and

they're super with the kids.

MARY:

Aren't ants quiet, too?

Lloyd realizes she has a point.
