Ground Floor script
Ground Floor  Episode #Pilot (2013)
Synopsis: Hot-shot, dedicated-to-the-cause money manager Brody is on his way up the corporate ladder, step by step with the help of his boss, Remington Trust CEO Remington Stewart Mansfield, who considers Brody the son he never had. That relationship, however, is jeopardized after Brody hooks up with Jenny, a maintenance department head in the office building where Brody works. Despite Mansfield's warnings, Brody tries to turn his fling with Jenny into something more permanent, bringing together two very different groups of friends and "co-workers" -- the top floor meeting the ground floor.

JENNIFER:

Jenny.

BRODY:

Brody.

JENNIFER:

Nice meeting you, too.

HE LEAVES WITH THE GROUP. AS THEY WALK OUT, HE STOPS AND

LOOKS BACK. WE ANGLE ON JENNIFER AT THE BAR BY HERSELF. HE

STEPS INTO FRAME AND SITS BACK DOWN NEXT TO HER.

BRODY:

So, you really think the snow plow

thing was intentional?

JENNIFER SMILES, HAPPY HE’S BACK, THEN:

JENNIFER:

Well, he said it wasn’t, but he chased

her across a soccer field, so...

JENNIFER:

Oh good, you’re up. You’ll never

believe this:
my mom and sister are in

the neighborhood, shopping, and they

want to go to brunch. You’ll come,

right? I really want them to meet

you.

BRODY:

Uh....

JENNIFER PULLS BACK THE SHEET AND HOPS OUT OF BED: SHE’S

FULLY DRESSED.

JENNIFER:

Just kidding. You should’ve seen your

face; it was pretty funny. I’ve gotta

go. Have a nice rest of the weekend.

BRODY:

Watch out for snow plows.

SHE’S GONE. AS BRODY SMILES TO HIMSELF:

Oh, hey.

JENNIFER:

Hey. This is weird.

BRODY:

No, we’re good, ‘cause I thought about

what to say if we ran into each other.

(HAND UP) Friday night. High five?

JENNIFER:

Okay.

SHE SLAPS IT.

JENNIFER (CONT’D)

But I meant it’s weird that we both

come to work at the same time and

we’ve never run into each other.

I’m not coming to work. I get here at

five to be ready when the east-coast

markets open. I just came down to

Lunch? When do you eat breakfast?
