Orange Is the New Black script
Orange Is the New Black  Episode #Pilot (2013)
Synopsis: Piper Chapman is a public relations executive with a career and a fiance when her past suddenly catches up to her. In her mid-30s she is sentenced to spend time in a minimum-security women's prison in Connecticut for her association with a drug runner 10 years earlier. This Netflix original series is based on the book of the same title. Forced to trade power suits for prison orange, Chapman makes her way through the corrections system and adjusts to life behind bars, making friends with the many eccentric, unusual and unexpected people she meets.

As the two men work on getting the pig out of the box, the

ladies are chatting.

ANGLE ON PIPER AND KIRSTEN:

Piper holds a cocktail, Kirsten, something non-alcoholic.

KIRSTEN:

Are we really gonna eat that?

PIPER:

Isn’t it appropriate that I eat pig

the night before I go to prison?

KIRSTEN:

Why?

PIPER:

Pigs. Cops. Never mind. It’s a

stretch.

KIRSTEN:

I guess anything but tuna.

PIPER:

Huh?

KIRSTEN:

Cause you’re going to be eating so

much of it in jail? Tuna? Vagina?

PIPER:

Nice. Thanks.

KIRSTEN:

How the fuck are you going to jail

tomorrow?

PIPER:

Prison. Not jail.

KIRSTEN:

Oh. Of course. Prison. Fuck,

Piper. Your timing sucks.

PIPER:

Like your timing doesn’t? Damn

baby. Ruining everything.

KIRSTEN:

And you’re missing my shower.

PIPER:

I’m still chipping in. And I

bought you a really nice gift.

KIRSTEN:

Yeah? What?

PIPER:

A pig roasting box. I got a twofer

deal. You’ll love it.

KIRSTEN:

I hope you’re kidding. You’re

kidding, right? You better be

kidding.

PIPER:

I got you that ridiculous stroller.

KIRSTEN:

Seriously? Oh my god. The one

that charges your phone?

PIPER:

Yes.

KIRSTEN:

Okay. You can go to prison now.

PIPER:

Thank you. Kirsten, you know I’m

sorry.

KIRSTEN:

I know.

PIPER:

And we hired Marianna. She’ll deal

with everything when we’re both...

indisposed.

KIRSTEN:

Indisposed? Lovely euphemism.

Marianna’s so... intense.

PIPER:

We need that. We’re the artists.

KIRSTEN:

We’re artists now?

PIPER:

They’re artisanal bath products.

Just shut up. It’s all gonna to be

fine. We got into Barney’s, for

Christ sake! Be happy for that at

least.
