Saving Private Ryan script
Synopsis: Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan, whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Surrounded by the brutal realties of war, while searching for Ryan, each man embarks upon a personal journey and discovers their own strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage.

Delancey Captain, are we all gonna die?

Miller Hell no, two-thirds, tops.

Delancey Oh, Jesus...

Miller I want every one of you to look at the man on your

left. Now look at the man on your right. Feel sorry for

those to sons-of-bitches, they're going to get it, you're

not going to get a scratch. A few, including DeLancey, manage

thin smiles. Miller releases his grip on DeLancey who moves

his jaw as if to see if it's broken. Miller pats him on the

cheek and moves on to the bow.

MILLER:

Looks over the gunwale at THE HELL

IN FRONT OF THEM.

PAN DOWN TO MILLER'S HAND

It quivers in fear. Miller glances around, sees that none

of the men have noticed. He stares at his hand as if it

belongs to someone else. It stops shaking. He turns his

eyes back to the objective.

THE LEAD LANDING CRAFT HITS THE BEACH

The six surviving boats alongside.

EXPLOSIVE PROPELLED GRAPPLING HOOKS FIRE

From the landing crafts. Arc toward the top of the cliffs.

THE LEAD CRAFT RAMP GOES DOWN

A river of MACHINE GUN FIRE pours into the craft. A dozen

men are INSTANTLY KILLED. Among them, DeLancey.

MILLER:

Somehow survives. Jumps into the

breakers.

MILLER:

MOVE, GODDAMN IT! GO! GO! GO!
