The Fault in Our Stars script
Synopsis: Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley), a 16-year-old cancer patient, meets and falls in love with Gus Waters (Ansel Elgort), a similarly afflicted teen from her cancer support group. Hazel feels that Gus really understands her. They both share the same acerbic wit and a love of books, especially Grace's touchstone, "An Imperial Affliction" by Peter Van Houten. When Gus scores an invitation to meet the reclusive author, he and Hazel embark on the adventure of their brief lives.

FRANNIE:

... some days she won't even get

out of bed.

The Doctor scratches his beard, thinking.

DOCTOR:

HAZEL:

DOCTOR:

HAZEL:

Keep `em coming. I can take it. I'm

like the Keith Richards of cancer

kids.

The Doctor looks at Frannie who just shakes her head.

DOCTOR:

Have you been going to that Support

Group I suggested?

Instead of answering, Hazel looks at her Mom.

4.

FRANNIE:

She's gone a few times.

HAZEL:

I'm not sure it's for me.

DOCTOR:

If you're depressed --

HAZEL:

(EXASPERATED)

I'm not de--

DOCTOR:

(IGNORING HER)

-- support Groups are a great way

to connect with people who are...

HAZEL:

What?

DOCTOR:

(BEAT)

On the same journey.

HAZEL:

"Journey?" Really?

FRANNIE:

Hazel.

DOCTOR:

Just give it a chance, ok? For me.

Hazel rolls her eyes, knows she's lost this battle.
