The Thirteenth Floor script
Synopsis: A man awakens to discover a bloody shirt in his house and his boss murdered the night before. Did he do it? Why can't he remember? "The Thirteenth Floor" is a sci-fi thriller that explores the ominous possibility of computer-simulated universes, where people only believe they are real.

DOUGLAS:

What?

McBAIN

I see these signs every time I leave work - " You could be home

already. Apartment living in downtown." Never expected it could

look anything like this.

DOUGLAS:

This company was Fuller's life. He worked and lived here.

McBAIN

So what exactly do your people do here?

DOUGLAS:

I don't think you wouldn't be interested.

McBAIN

I'm paid to be interested.

DOUGLAS:

Computer research. Fuller was onto a whole new frontier. Very

sensitive material. Not at liberty to discuss it.

McBAIN

A lot of money involved. This apartment must be worth a few

million dollars.

DOUGLAS:

One of the perks of the job.

McBAIN

This job has a whole lot of perks.

(A woman comes in)

DOUGLAS:

Can I help you?

JANE:

I just talked to him 2 days ago. I can't believe he' gone. My

name is Jane Fuller. Hannon was my father.

DOUGLAS:

I'm sorry. I'm Douglas Hall.

JANE:

You are the one he always wanted me to meet.

DOUGLAS:

Really? He never mentioned to me that he had a daughter.

JANE:

he didn't? I just arrived from Paris this morning. I was supposed

to meet him. But then I heard.

McBAIN

My condolences, Miss Fuller. I'm Detective McBain, LAPD. I have

to ask you some questions.

JANE:

of course.

McBAIN

Would you excuse us, Mr. Hall?

DOUGLAS:

Sure. Have we ever met before?

JANE:

No, that's not possible.

DOUGLAS:

You look very familiar. Nice to meet you, Miss Fuller.

INT. THE 13TH FLOOR

DOUGLAS:

Hey, Whitney. How you doing?

WHITNEY:

Sliced him up like an animal. And for what? He was the Einstein

of our generation. It's a waste.

DOUGLAS:

What the hell happened while I was away?

WHITNEY:

He was jacking into the system a lot.

DOUGLAS:

What?

WHITNEY:

I thought you knew. You didn't know?
