Unbreakable script
Unbreakable (2000)
Synopsis: David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is the sole survivor of a devastating train wreck. Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) is a mysterious stranger who offers a bizarre explanation as to why David escaped without a single scratch -- an explanation which threatens to change David's family and his life forever.

DAVID:

What a coincidence? I'm a

male synchronized swimmer

and I'm looking for

representation.

WOMAN(smiling)

Is that right?

DAVID:

But I'm afraid of water, so

that's been holding my

career back a little bit.

The woman laughs.

DAVID:

You represent someone in

Philadelphia?

WOMAN:

I'm meeting a player from

Temple University. He's a

cornerback. You like

football?

Beat.

DAVID:

Not really.

WOMAN:

This kid is six foot two,

two hundred and forty

pounds. He runs the fifty in

under six seconds. He's

going to be a God.

Beat. David studies the excitement in her eyes.

ANOTHER LOUD VIOLENT BURST OF SOUND. David waits till the opposing train passes.

The woman goes back to her magazine. Beat.

DAVID:

I'm David Dunne.

The woman looks up.

WOMAN:

Kelly.

She goes back to the magazine.

Beat.

DAVID:

How long are you staying in

Philly?

KELLY looks up from her Sports Illustrated. Her striking blue eyes gaze at David.

Beat.

She holds up her hand. Taps the diamond ring on her finger.

KELLY(soft)

I'm married.

DAVID(fake excitement)

Great.

Beat.

KELLY:

Sorry.

DAVID(fake confusion)

What are you talking about?

An awkward silence.

DAVID:

I think you got the wrong

idea.

The woman stares at David. She looks down. Beat. Closes the magazine.

KELLY:

I'm going to find another

seat.

Kelly gets up. She balances herself against a headrest as the train rumbles. She

starts to the back of the car.

David sits alone. He looks like he's drowning, but there's no water.

He feels a stare. He glances up. The little girl spies on him from between the

seats.

David leans towards the window to avoid eye contact. His hand reaches into his

coat and slides out his wedding band. He puts it back on.
