Ride Along script
Ride Along (2014)
Synopsis: For two years, security guard Ben (Kevin Hart) has tried to convince James (Ice Cube), a veteran cop, that he is worthy of James' sister, Angela. When Ben is finally accepted into the police academy, James decides to test his mettle by inviting him along on a shift deliberately designed to scare the trainee. However, events take an unexpected turn when their wild night leads to Atlanta's most-notorious criminal and Ben's rapid-fire mouth proves as dangerous as the bullets whizzing by them.

fear suffering. Even (air quotes)

‘tough guys’ like yourself.

Kevin:

This is too philosophical for the

summer. Try me again if three weeks.

Chloe:

A classic Kevin Starr deflection.

Anyways my parents are probably waiting

for me in the car. I’ll text you later.

(A pause) Oh, and enjoy the rest of

your last summer as a kid.

Chloe walks away smiling.

3. INT. CAR- NIGHT.

We see Kevin and his mom, MRS. STARR, in the CAR. She is late

40s and clearly has hair that has been dyed blonde too many

times.

Mrs. Starr:

So Kevin, do you think you’re ready for

this? It sounds like some serious stuff

and I just want to know if you think

you can handle it. I mean, last week

when the cable went out you decided to

put pillows at the bottom of the stairs

and then jump from the top. Hardly EMT-

like.

Kevin:

Haha, yeah… You know that helping

people has always been what I want to

do. Being an EMT is as helpful as

helpful gets, at least for a high

school senior.

Mom:

Just remember that this will be a lot

of time and work, and that graduating

high school comes first.

Kevin:

Yeah, yeah, it’ll be easy, don’t worry

about it. (A pause) Can we get pizza?

Mom:

No.

Kevin:

(Little kid voice) But mom I want

pizza. I want it, I want it, I want it!

Mrs. Starr sighs and says:

Mrs. Starr:

Fine…

4. EXT. HIGH SCHOOL PARKING LOT- DAY.

Kevin and Chloe both get out of Kevin’s CAR and shut the doors.

They both have their BACKPACKS and first day of schools clothes

on. They walk towards ELLICOTT CITY HIGH SCHOOL, an old, large,

brick building.

Chloe:

Oh, also we’re apparently allowed to

drive to the EMT class from school. We

don’t have to ride the bus to and from

it. That way we can just leave from the

class and don’t have to go back to

school.
