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.

YOUNGER MAN:

You want a tip when I'm through?

BETTY:

It's your body...

Betty turns back to change pots. The older man watches her

intently as the younger of the two mumbles to himself.

YOUNGER MAN:

(to himself)

That's right, so why don't you get up off

it...

OLDER MAN:

Wesley...

(to Betty)

I've told him the same thing. Thanks for

the suggestion.

BETTY:

No problem.

Betty flashes the men a winning smile and moves off, one eye

always on the TV as she approaches two local types.

SHERIFF ELDEN BALLARD, 32, a short, tightly wound little man,

sitting at his own booth. Ballard is spit and polish all the

way:
creases in his shirt, a glossy shine on his shoes.

Badge proudly displayed. He sits with

4.

ROY OSTREY, 31, a gangly, bookish local reporter. Betty

drops five ketchup packets and four mayonnaise packets on the

table for him. Another smile.

ROY:

Hi, Betty. You're looking good...

BETTY:

Thanks, Roy, you're sweet... a big liar,

but sweet. I liked your editorial this

morning...
