Good Will Hunting script
Synopsis: Will Hunting (Matt Damon) has a genius-level IQ but chooses to work as a janitor at MIT. When he solves a difficult graduate-level math problem, his talents are discovered by Professor Gerald Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard), who decides to help the misguided youth reach his potential. When Will is arrested for attacking a police officer, Professor Lambeau makes a deal to get leniency for him if he will get treatment from therapist Sean Maguire (Robin Williams).

WILL:

Watching his cat get brained.

Morgan gives Will a look, but Will only smiles.

CHUCKIE:

Yeah, so he's like "Check the front

of my truck, I can prove I hit it

'cause there's probably some blood

or something"--

WILL:

--or a tail--

MORGAN:

WILL!

CHUCKIE:

And so they go around to the front

of his truck... and there's another

cat on the grille.

WILL/MORGAN/BILLY

No! Ugh!

CHUCKIE:

Is that unbelievable? He brained an

innocent cat!

BLACKOUT:

The opening credits roll over a series of shots of the city

and the real people who live and work there, going about

their daily lives.

We see a panoramic view of South Boston.

Will sits in his apartment, walls completely bare. A bed, a

small night table and an empty basket adorn the room. A stack

of twenty or so LIBRARY BOOKS sit by his bed. He is flipping

through a book at about a page a second.
