The Grapes of Wrath script
Synopsis: A poor Midwest family is forced off of their land. They travel to California, suffering the misfortunes of the homeless in the Great Depression.

DRIVER:

You ain't got to get sore.

TOM:

(coldly)

Go ahead. Ask me anything you want.

DRIVER:

I didn't mean nothing.

TOM:

Me neither. I'm just tryin' to get

along without shovin' anybody around,

that's all.

(After a pause)

See that road up ahead?

DRIVER:

Yeah.

TOM:

That's where I get off.

With a sigh of relief the driver puts his foot on the brake.

The TRUCK stops and Tom gets out. He look at the uneasy driver

contemptuously.

TOM:

You're about to bust to know what I

done, ain't you? Well, I ain't a

guy to let you down.

(Confidentially)

Homicide!

The driver throws the truck into gear. He doesn't like this

at all.
