Hudson Hawk script
Hudson Hawk (1991)
Synopsis: Thief extraordinaire Hudson Hawk (Bruce Willis) has just been released from prison and all he wants is a nice cappuccino. However, before he can savor his favorite beverage, the highly eccentric and wealthy Darwin Mayflower (Richard E. Grant) and his equally odd wife, Minerva (Sandra Bernhard), rope Hawk into an ambitious series of heists. Soon Hawk is stealing no less than major works by Leonardo Da Vinci, priceless pieces that the Mayflowers plan to use in an exceedingly nefarious way.

Hawk flings the keys in a trash can.

HAWK:

Why am I getting the feeling that

getting out of prison is going to

be a big fucking mistake.

Hawk dispenses himself a Pez piece then spits it out in

agony.

8 EXT. OUTSIDE THE PRISON--DAY 8

Hawk strides to the Massive Sliding Concrete Door/Wall

between him and freedom. As music crescendos and Hawk

glows his first smile.

GUARD:

On the gate!

HAWK:

See you around, Michael.

GATES:

Hudson Hawk, you're under arrest.

(cackles)

Just kidding. Good opening line

though, huh? I've got a

proposition....

HAWK:

Answer's no, not even if you

bathe.

The Concrete Wall/Door slams shut behind Hawk.

GATES:

Why do you treat your parole officer

with such disrespect? I've found

you a job. An auction house. One

night's work then you're free like

no ex-con's ever been. No checking

in with a shrink, no community

service teaching retards how to

play air hockey. It's a great deal,

I can't lie.

HAWK:

The only thing you can't do is get

sex for free. I know I was in

prison for basically the 80's,

but, call me batty, aren't you

supposed to stop me from committing

crimes. You know, Book-em-Dano,

Call-for-back-up, Give-a-HootDon't-

Pollute.

Hawk begins to strut off. Gates and the car keep up.

GATES:

You wouldn't be out if it wasn't

for me! I did the dog and pony

for you! You think the parole

board would have let you out after

what you did to them?

HAWK:

How was I supposed to know they

were women?
