Our Girl script
Our Girl  Season #1 Episode #3 (2013)
Synopsis: Our Girl is a British television drama, which starred Lacey Turner as Molly Dawes (in its first series) a young adult from a lower class background who joins the British Army after deciding her life is going nowhere. A one-off special was broadcast on 24 March 2013 on BBC One, which saw Dawes make the decision to join the army, despite the protests of her protective family.

She turns and pointedly looks in the other direction as she eats

her cereal. After a moment or two someone behind her dips a spoon

into her bowl.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

(swinging round)

Oi!

She sees it is James.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

(with mouth full)

Sorry boss, I thought it was Sohail.

JAMES:

What, you wouldn't share your

breakfast with Sohail?

MOLLY:

(mouth full)

No way. I'm not letting him dip his spoon

in my Coco Pops.

JAMES:

I take it that's not meant to be a

euphemism, Dawes.

MOLLY:

If I knew what one of them was Sir I'd

let you know.

James laughs.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Sohail is a well dodge geez.

JAMES:

If I knew what one of those was I'd let

you know! I haven't had Coco Pops in

bloody ages.

They both eat from the bowl occasionally looking up and smiling

at each other.

JAMES (CONT'D)

What?

MOLLY:

What?

They both laugh.

Beat. Azizi has emerged from the comms tent and is calling James

in an urgent manner.

AZIZI:

Captain James!

Azizi shouts something in Pashto to his ANA troops as James hurries

towards the comms tent.

AZIZI:

(in Pashto - 10:
03:01)

Get ready. We’re going)

AZIZI (CONT'D)

We've not had comms from the Mountain

Checkpoint this morning.

James calls out for Kinders who's in the showers.

JAMES:

Kinders!

Kinders grabs his towel and wrapping it round his waist runs towards

the comms tent and James.

JAMES (CONT'D)

Have they ever not responded before?

AZIZI:

Every morning they check in and give

me the night report. Today... nothing.

JAMES:

If they'd had contact...

Azizi sees an Afghan helicopter fly over head preparing to land.

AZIZI:

Serious enough for Special Forces.
