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.

JULIANNE:

So I cried. For maybe the third

time in my life. And I kissed

him. And we've been best friends

ever since.

Ever since. Fingers turning her wine glass...

JULIANNE:

Nine years, we've seen each other

through everything. Losing jobs,

losing parents, losing lovers...

travelled all over, we've had the

best times. The best times of my

life, maybe. Just drinking and

talking. Even over a phone.

DIGGER:

Kindred spirits.

JULIANNE:

No, he's nothing like me. He's

like you. Only straight.

No offense taken.

JULIANNE:

He's the salt of the earth. Kind

and loyal and generous. The one

constant thing in my life, is he'll

always be there.

DIGGER:

He's still in love with you.

That stops her. She has to say...

JULIANNE:

Maybe. But it never gets in

the way.

Something she probably hasn't confessed out loud before. Digger

understands.

DIGGER:

Well, he has a true friend in

you.

He wants her to know he sees that.

DIGGER:

Whenever George tells someone

how steadfast I am, he always

makes me sound boring.

JULIANNE:

Solid and genuine is not boring.

Michael can be completely insane...

A young waiter arrives. Sets a boat of black squid ink beside her

plate.

JULIANNE:

There was this one night in

Tucson, like six years ago...

we got amazingly drunk, I mean,

Keith Richards time...

The kid tops off her glass of meursault. Looking at her.

JULIANNE:

God, I haven't thought of this

in so long...

The waiter hanging now. Openly listening.

JULIANNE:

I can even believe we did

this...

Digger sees the guy listening, gestures to her with his eyes. So

she looks up.

JULIANNE:

Could you give us a minute?
