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.

LITTLE BOY:

Are you Calvin Nack? Could you

sign my card?

5.

Nack bends down with a kindly-looking face.

CALVIN NACK:

I'm sorry little fella. I can't

sign that particular brand of

card. I can only sign Pro-Jam

Blue Dot cards.

The Little Boy looks confused. As Calvin Nack turns to grab

an orange juice from a barmaid, Jerry smoothly dishes off a

business card to the little boy.

JERRY'S VOICE

Lately, it's gotten worse.

INT. HOSPITAL BEDROOM -- NIGHT

Hockey Player STEVE REMO, 33, is a big man in a small bed.

He is in traction, with concussion. DOCTOR stands nearby,

shoots Jerry a look of concern. Family is nearby.

DOCTOR:

Do you know your name?

STEVE REMO:

I uh... wait. Wait, here it

comes. I have it. My name is

Steve Remo. I play for the

Blackhawks.

(now on a roll)

You are my son. This pretty lady

is my wife. And you are...

Jerry nods encouragingly, presents his best "familiar" face.

STEVE REMO:

(continuing)

My agent!

JERRY:

Yes!

STEVE REMO:

And I gotta play this weekend,

Doc. If I play in 65% of the

games, I make my bonus.

EXT. HOSPITAL HALLWAY -- NIGHT

Remo's 14 year-old SON (JESSE) confronts Jerry outside the

hospital room. He's a hulking kid, a Pop Warner football

player himself. His voice is in the process of changing.

6.

SON:

This is his fourth concussion.

Shouldn't somebody get him to stop?

As he talks, Jerry's cellular phone rings in his bag.

JERRY:

(glib, easy)

Come on -- it'd take a tank to

stop your dad. It would take all

five Super Trooper VR Warriors,

right?

The kid stares at Maguire. It feels as if the kid is peering

into his soul... and all he sees is trash.

SON:

Fuck you.

The kid turns and exits in disgust. He leaves Jerry standing

in the hallway. Devastated. Music.
