Gothika script
Gothika (2003)
Synopsis: The life of psychiatrist Miranda Grey (Halle Berry) is derailed after she nearly hits a girl with her car one night. Later, Miranda wakes up in her own mental hospital under the care of her peer, Pete Graham (Robert Downey Jr.). Completely disoriented, Miranda is accused of killing her own husband, but she has no memory of anything after she encountered the girl. Slowly Miranda begins to uncover what happened, but she has to escape the asylum to solve the mystery.

As suddenly as it went out, now the POWER RETURNS. A

visibly uncomfortable Miranda checks the clock.

MIRANDA:

That's it until Monday. Try andget some sleep tonight, okay?

CHLOE:

Sure, Doctor.

(leans in)

Crazy people hear messages fromGod. Not the Devil. You know

that, right?

MIRANDA:

I didn't say you were crazy.

CHLOE:

You don't have to say it.

She almost doesn't seem crazy when she says this.

Almost. TWO ORDERLIES appear at the door. Miranda nods

for them to escort Chloe. Chloe shakes their hands awayfrom her, strides off dramatically. The princess of theasylum.

INT. WOODWARD CORRIDOR - LATER

Miranda locks her office, armed with paperwork. The end

of another workweek. DR. PETE GRAHAM, a good ten yearsolder and Miranda's best friend on the job, approaches.

PETE:

Dr. Grey.

MIRANDA:

Dr. Graham.

They walk along with the easy confidence of colleagueswho not only respect each other, but enjoy each other. A

lot.

PETE:

Power went out again in our wing.

MIRANDA:

(knows what's coming)

Same here.

PETE:

It's not shrink-appropriate to beafraid of the dark, you know?

MIRANDA:

You're not shrink appropriate andyou're about to get promoted.

Everybody's afraid of something.

PETE:

What am I afraid of?

MIRANDA:

Yourself. At least you should be.

What are you up to this weekend?

MIRANDA:

He thinks it's fun.

PETE:

MIRANDA:
