Nurse Betty script
Nurse Betty (2000)
Synopsis: What happens when a person decides that life is merely a state of mind? If you're Betty, a small-town waitress and soap opera fan from Fair Oaks, Kansas, you refuse to believe that you can't be with the love of your life just because he doesn't really exist. After all, life is no excuse for not living. Traumatized by a savage event, Betty enters into a fugue state that allows -- even encourages -- her to keep functioning... in a kind of alternate reality.

OLDER MAN:

Miss?

Betty leans forward, grabs the coffee pot and moves in front

of him. Without taking her eyes from the TV, she pours the

java, which somehow lands in his cup without spilling a drop.

OLDER MAN:

(cont'd)

Very impressive. That is very...

(turning to others)

Did anybody see that?

The LOCAL GUYS around him don't even bother to look up. Of

course, they've seen it before. Betty smiles.

OLDER MAN:

(cont'd)

Thank you. Could I bother you for a

little more...?

Before he can even finish, Betty is topping him off with

milk.

BETTY:

Skim, right?

(tears open an Equal)

And half a pack, if I remember correct...

The older gentleman's mouth works a bit but nothing comes

out. He is flabbergasted by her attention to detail. She

looks at the younger man, who is still following the show and

gobbling down a huge bacon burger.

BETTY (cont'd)

You know, you're never too young to start

on a lean meat substitute...

(BEAT)

You wanna try some turkey bacon on that?
