Jerry Maguire script
Jerry Maguire (1996)
Synopsis: When slick sports agent Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) has a crisis of conscience, he pens a heartfelt company-wide memo that promptly gets him fired. Desperate to hang on to the athletes that he represents, Jerry starts his own management firm, with only single mother Dorothy Boyd (Renee Zellweger) joining him in his new venture. Banking on their sole client, football player Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.), Jerry and Dorothy begin to fall in love as they struggle to make their business work.

Sports photos and posters are framed on the walls. The signs

of global marketing are omnipresent. Each agent has a silver

tray containing soft drinks and a glass pitcher of water.

Through the glass window, we see a large office divided up

into many cubicles.

JERRY'S VOICE

Thirty-three out of shape agents

guiding the careers of 2,120 of

the most finely-tuned athletes

alive...

Near the end of the table sits Jerry Maguire. The word

"millions" appears often and easily in his conversation.

Shot moves in.

JERRY'S VOICE

(continuing)

... in this economy, sometimes

emotions run a little high.

INT. UNDERGROUND PARKING GARAGE -- HOUSTON -- DAY

An unmarked car pulls into the underground parking facility

of the Houston Police Department. A cluster of chattering

media members move in on the car. ("Baja!!" "Baja, over

here!!") Back doors open, and out steps Jerry Maguire with

huge offensive lineman, BOBBY "BAJA" BRUNARD, 22. He is

angry, and he is handcuffed.

WOMAN REPORTER:

Was the girl 16 or seventeen?

MAN REPORTER:

Were you aiming at anyone when you

fired the shot in the 7/l1?

Jerry whips in between Baja and the taunting media, blocking

him off and forcing him through the glass doors into the

police department. Professional smile in place, Maguire

attempts spin.

JERRY:

Listen, there's no proof of

anything except that this guy is

a sensational athlete.

In the background, we hear baja bellowing insults at the

press.

INT. ATLANTA RED CARPET ROOM -- ANOTHER DAY

Jerry now sits next to a towering white 27 year-old

basketball player with a bad haircut. He is CALVIN NACK.

They are signing a contract in the airport lounge. A little

BOY approaches the player with a basketball trading card.
