My Best Friend's Wedding script
Synopsis: Childhood friends Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts) and Michael O'Neal (Dermot Mulroney) had a deal to marry each other if they were still single by age 28. Now, four days before her 28th birthday, O'Neil announces that he's marrying a gorgeous 20-year-old named Kimberly (Cameron Diaz). Suddenly realizing that she's actually in love with him, Julianne vows to stop the wedding at all costs. However, when she is appointed maid of honor, things get even more complex.

And her face changes. Warms. Just to hear the guileless voice.

MICHAEL (V.O.)

God, it must be, what, months, huh?

I can't wait to talk to you. I'm

in Chicago at the Ritz Carlton...

She looks impressed and surprised. Fancy place for this guy.

MICHAEL (V.O.)

Call me four in the morning,

whatever, we gotta talk.

As she hangs up. She still has that look in her eye. Digger has

never seen that, and he likes it very much.

DIGGER:

Who called? The man of the

moment?

She smiles. A sweet, natural smile that makes us like her, too.

The Bohemian sophisticate has vanished.

JULIANNE:

No, no, the opposite. That's

my best friend, Michael O'Neal.

He sounds desperate to talk.

DIGGER:

The wandering sportswriter.

He pushes the risotto back her way.

DIGGER:

I didn't know you two had a

past.

Her gaze sharpens. Hmmn?

DIGGER:

The look in your eye.

She blushes. Shakes her head, no way.

JULIANNE:

Sophomore year at Yale we had

this one hot month. And, you

know me, I got restless...

He knows her. She got restless.

JULIANNE:

So I get up the nerve to break

his heart. I tell him there's

this dreamy exchange student

from Pakistan who wants to,

you know...

He knows.

JULIANNE:

And he gets this... look. He

says, "I knew I couldn't hold

your interest", which, of course,

makes me feel like the shallow

bitch I've always been...

He nods, yeah.

JULIANNE:

Then he says, "But what makes

me want to cry. Is I'm losing

the best friend I ever had."

Hears the feeling. In her voice.

JULIANNE:

And when he said it, I knew.

I felt the same.

Silence now. She covers with a smile.
