St. Vincent script
St. Vincent (2014)
Synopsis: Maggie (Melissa McCarthy), a struggling single woman, moves to Brooklyn with her 12-year-old son, Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Having to work very long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of Vincent (Bill Murray), a bawdy misanthrope next door. Vincent takes Oliver along on his trips to the race track, strip club and dive bar, and an unlikely friendship is born. The man is a mentor to the boy in his hedonistic way, and Oliver sees the good in Vincent that no one else can.

(searches the papers)

eight years...you’ve reached the

cash out limit. That’s that loan

to-value thing I just mentioned.

VINCENT:

The house is worth-

TERRY:

It was worth. Whatever it was

worth. And I’m sure you know

housing prices have fallen

dramatically since the financial

crisis. Right. Unless you’ve been

living under a rock.

His attempt at humor...not appreciated.

VINCENT:

You do stand-up?

Vin rises.

VINCENT (CONT’D)

This is my life here, pal. I need

that money.

TERRY:

I’m sorry, Mr. Canatella. There’s

really nothing I can do. It is

what it is.

VINCENT:

Everybody’s says that now. You

know what it means, “You’re fucked,

so stay fucked.”

He walks off.

VINCENT (CONT’D)

I’m closing my accounts forthwith.

You don’t get my business another

day.

THE TELLER LINE - MOMENTS LATER

Vin waits in line, steaming. Ding. An electronic arrow

points him to TELLER WINDOW #23.

TELLER WINDOW #23 - CONTINUOUS

Vin hands TELLER #23 his ATM card.

VINCENT:

I want to close this account.

TELLER #23

I’m sorry to hear that, sir. May I

ask why?

VINCENT:

Lady. I don’t want to tell you to

go fuck yourself. You’re just a

spoke on a wheel, trying to make a

living like the rest of us

schmucks. Let’s just leave it at

that.

TELLER #23

Okay.

Tap, tap, tap on the keyboard.

TELLER #23 (CONT’D)

That’s one hundred twelve dollars

and fourteen cents.

VINCENT:

Small bills.

TELLER #23

No, sir...you’re overdrawn that

much.

VINCENT:

What’s that mean?

TELLER #23

It means you don’t-

VINCENT:

I know what overdrawn means.

TELLER #23

We’ve sent several notices.

VINCENT:

So. I can’t close my account.
