Moonstruck script
Moonstruck (1987)
Synopsis: No sooner does Italian-American widow Loretta (Cher) accept a marriage proposal from her doltish boyfriend, Johnny (Danny Aiello), than she finds herself falling for his younger brother, Ronny (Nicolas Cage). She tries to resist, but Ronny lost his hand in an accident he blames on his brother, and has no scruples about aggressively pursuing her while Johnny is out of the country. As Loretta falls deeper in love, she comes to learn that she's not the only one in her family with a secret romance.

She goes and sits by RUBY, another old women. She leans over

and says.

OLD WOMAN:

He looks great.

RUBY:

That Al Conti is a genius.

INT. OFFICE OF THE FUNERAL PARLOR

First WE SEE a name plate on a desk. The plate reads ALFONSO

CONTI. We HEAR his VOICE.

CONTI'S VOICE

I am a genius.

The SHOT WIDENS TO INCLUDE the loaf of bread which is half

cut up and being buttered. Next to the bread are two steaming

mugs of coffee. We HEAR the subdued TAPPING of Loretta's

tabulations.

LORETTA'S VOICE

If you're such an artistic genius,

why can't you keep track of your

receipts? How am I going to do your

income tax?

CONTI'S VOICE

I am an artistic genius.

The SHOT WIDENS and now we can see Al Conti and Loretta

sitting at the desk having Zito's buttered bread and mugs of

coffee. Loretta's got her calculator going and is entering

figures in Al's black, gold-lettered ledger.

LORETTA:

If you're an artistic genius, how

come you got butter on your tie?
