Fletch script
Fletch (1985)
Synopsis: A veritable chameleon, investigative reporter Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher (Chevy Chase) might drive his editor (Richard Libertini) up the wall, but he always produces great pieces for the newspaper. When his next story is about the drug trade taking place on the beach, Fletch goes undercover as a homeless man. Unaware of Fletch's true identity, businessman Alan Stanwyk (Tim Matheson) offers Fletch $50,000 to kill him. Intrigued, Fletch decides to unearth the full story behind the offer.

STANWYK:

We can't talk about it here.

FLETCH:

Why not?

STANWYK:

Because we can't.

FLETCH:

Are you on a scavenger hunt of some kind?

STANWYK:

I want you to come to my house. Then we'll talk.

FLETCH:

I think you've got the wrong gal, fella.

STANWYK:

I'll give you a thousand dollars cash just to

come to my house and listen to the proposition.

If you reject the proposition, you keep the

thousand, and your mouth shut.

FLETCH:

Will this proposition entail my dressing up as Tina Turner?

STANWYK:

(unsmiling, all business)

It is nothing of a sexual nature I assure you.

(Takes a thousand in cash from his pocket)

One thousand, just to listen.I don't see

how you could turn that down Mr...

Nugent. Ted Nugent.
