Synopsis: Punch-Drunk Love is a 2002 American romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring Adam Sandler, Emily Watson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Luis Guzmán, and Mary Lynn Rajskub.

A small FORD ESCORT pulls into the driveway, around the

Harmonium, parks......a young woman named LENA LEONARD

(Emily Watson) exits the car and starts to walk down the

length of the alley towards him.....CAMERA stays over his

shoulder and turns into a profile 2-shot;

LENA:

Hi. Do you work at the mechanic?

BARRY:

No.

LENA:

They're not open yet?

BARRY:

They don't get opened until eight.

BEAT. Barry gently steps back and out of the FRAME.

LENA:

Is it ok if I leave my car you think?

BARRY:

I don't know.

LENA:

I thought they opened at seven.

(beat)

If I left my car would it be ok?

BARRY:

I don't know.

LENA:

Do you know them.

BARRY:

Not very well.

LENA:

Can I ask you, can I trust to leave

my keys with you and give them to

you so that when they get here you

could give them to them?

BARRY:

Ok.

LENA:

You think it's ok where I left it,

right there?

BARRY:

I think that'll be fine.

Lena hands him her keys, he steps back into FRAME, THEN:

LENA:

There's a piano in the street.

BARRY:

Yeah.

BEAT.

LENA:

Ok. Maybe I'll see you later. Thank

you for your help.

BARRY:

Thank you.

LENA:

Maybe I'll see you later, when I

pick up my car?

BARRY:

Ok.

She walks away....he starts back inside the warehouse,

hesitates, watches her go.....right before she reaches the

end of the alley, she glances back quickly, over her

shoulder....he dodges inside real quick.....

HOLD THE EMPTY FRAME......then he steps back out.....looks

off at the Harmonium.....and the empty street.....he looks

around some more....then he makes the long walk down the

street.

ON THE STREET.

Barry stares at the Harmonium a little bit, looks around,

both ways, then casually picks it up and walks back towards

his business.....

He brings it into his office and places it on his desk. He

tries a few keys....pressing down...there's no sound.
