Smashed (2012)
Synopsis: Smashed is a 2012 American drama film directed by James Ponsoldt, written by Ponsoldt and Susan Burke, and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul. Winstead and Paul play a married couple, Kate and Charlie Hannah, both alcoholics. After a series of embarrassing incidents caused by her drinking habit, Kate decides to get sober with the help of a coworker and a sponsor from Alcoholics Anonymous.

Kate rolls her eyes.

KATE:

I think I’m done for the night.

5.

CHARLIE:

Yeah?

Owen wanders over, dejected.

OWEN:

She’s seen “Say Anything.”

CHARLIE:

Eh, well...what’re you gonna do,

huh?

(beat)

Wanna drive us home?

KATE:

No -- he needs to keep working it!

You guys stay here.

CHARLIE:

I don’t want to watch my brother

not score. I want to go to bed with

you and...

(whispered into Kate’s

ear)

...you know.

KATE:

I’ll be home when you get there. We

can “you know” then.

OWEN:

(to Charlie)

Yeah, man -- you don’t have a job

to wake up for in the morning or

anything.

CHARLIE:

Writing is a job! Not having to

report to an office only makes work

harder.

(to Kate)

Baby, you drank a lot. I think Owen

should take us home -- you’re too

drunk to drive.

KATE:

So’s Owen.

(suddenly focused)

I’m not that drunk. Besides, you

know I focus when I drive -- it

sobers me up.

CHARLIE:

Tell that to the cops.

6.

Kate kisses Charlie and hugs Owen.

KATE:

(to Charlie)

I love you, baby. I’ll be waiting

for you in a nice warm bed. You

have exactly one mission: get your

brother laid -- and don’t talk to

any other women.

Beat.

CHARLIE:

That sounds like two missions.

KATE:

No, it’s just one.

CHARLIE:

(to Owen)

It kinda sounded like two, right?

OWEN:

(nodding)

It did.

Kate grins and slowly backs away towards the door.

KATE:

(really fast)

GoodbyeIloveyouboth!

2 EXT. KARAOKE BAR - PARKING LOT - NIGHT 2 *

Kate stumbles out of the bar and hears a GROAN. She glances

over and sees:

A drunk woman -- FREDA, 30s -- sitting on the curb. She MOANS

again.

Kate glances around the parking lot. Nobody else but her and

Freda.

KATE:

You okay?

FREDA:

(quick)

Yeah. Are you?
