Working Girl script
Working Girl (1988)
Synopsis: Savvy New York City receptionist Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) gives her conniving boss, Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver), an excellent business tip, but Katharine simply steals the idea without giving due credit to her secretary. After Katharine winds up in the hospital with an injured leg, Tess decides to exact revenge. Pretending to be her boss, Tess initiates a major deal with an investment broker (Harrison Ford) -- but things turn ugly after Katharine finds out what Tess has been up to.

Bob

Well, we'll go through all that at the hotel.

Tess

The hotel?

Bob

Yeah, the company keeps a suite at the Ritz Carlton, and you

know, when it's empty, they give to us boys on a bonus basis--

Woah! We are gonna party!

Tess

Hey!

Bob

Oh, sorry! Allow me, I'm so sorry!

Tess

Hey Bob! Please!

Bob

Oh, sorry, sorry! I just get a little carried away. You know

what, Arbitrage has put out this sort of "Introduction To" tape

for the business schools. Why don't we put it in and if you have

any questions...

Tess

That would be great. Thanks.

Bob

Ha! Ha! Ha! It's the wrong tape! Uh, unless of course you

want to....

Tess

Bob, you're not seriously looking for a new assistant, are you?

Bob

Well, not exactly at this moment, but I'm always on the lookout

for new blood.

Tess

I'm hungry Bob, but I am not that hungry!

Bob

Now, you see, I wouldn't put it that way.

Tess

I would! Um, would you just pull over right here please!

Bob

What are you doing?

Tess

Ha! Ha! Ha! Party Bob!

SCENE 9

Mr. Lutz

You're late Tess!

Tess

Types message:
"David Lutz is a sleazoid pimp with a tiny little

dick."

Mr. Lutz

Bitch!

Mr. Turkel

Take it easy!

SCENE 10

Ruth

Tess. Tess. Tess.

Tess

I know.

Ruth

You don't get ahead in this world by calling your boss a pimp.

Tess

Well, he is.

Ruth

Been lookin' at your file here. This is the third time in six

months I've had to place you.

Tess

Well, it wasn't my fault.

Ruth

Where have I heard that before?

Tess

Ruth, look it. I'm 30-years old. It took me five years of night

school but I got my degree and I got it with honors. I know I

could do a job. I mean, you ask any of my bosses--even, even

Lutz--if Tess McGill hasn't called a few.
