Legally Blonde script
Synopsis: Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) has it all. She wants nothing more than to be Mrs. Warner Huntington III. But there is one thing stopping him (Matthew Davis) from proposing: She is too blond. Elle rallies all of her resources and gets into Harvard, determined to win him back.

INT. DELTA GAMMA HOUSE - DAY 1

"HEAD OVER HEELS" by the Go-Go's plays as we wind through a

flock of abstract, silky, golden strands -- PULLING BACK, to

discover that the strands are hair on a BLONDE GIRL's head.

But not just any blonde girl, a girl in Delta Gamma, the

blondest, most beautiful sorority at USC.

We PULL BACK further to see that she's signing a handmade

card. She holds it up ~ OVER HER SHOULDER, we see hearts

and glitter surrounding and "Good Luck Tonight!" and "Elle

and Warner forever!."

She carries the card out of her room and we FOLLOW HER across

the hall, into the room of --

THREE BLONDE CHEERLEADERS, who stop practicing their pom-pom

routine to sign the card. As they finish, we follow the Card

Girl out and into the room of --

A BLONDE GIRL IN A TANK TOP and shorts, working out on a

Stairmaster as "General Hospital" plays on a tiny TV. She

signs the card while continuing to exercise. We move on, to

the room of--

A BLONDE GIRL MAKING OUT WITH HER BOYFRIEND who stops long

enough to sign the card, as her boyfriend nibbles on her

neck. She hands the card back and we head into the room of --

A BLONDE PARTY GIRL who pours a pink frozen margarita into a

glass from the blender, then passes it down to ANOTHER BLONDE

GIRL, assembly-line style. The card goes one way, being

signed, as the drinks go the other.

Once the card arrives back in the Card Girl's hands, we

follow her out of the room and down the hall until she

reaches the very last and biggest door --

She puts a kiss mark on the card, then kneels down and slides

the card under the door.

INT. ELLE'S DELTA GAMMA ROOM - DAY - CONTINUOUS 2

The CARD slides into the pink room, hitting the feet of

UNDERDOG, a tiny chihuahua ~ who picks it up in his mouth

and trots it over to a pair of perfectly pedicured feet in

strappy sandals.

An equally perfectly manicured hand with a "Sisters Forever"

charm bracelet dangling from the wrist, scoops up Underdog.

As he rises, we RISE WITH HIM, passing toned, waxed, tanned

legs in pink Prada pedal pushers and a pair of perky boobs

encased in a spaghetti-strap top -- until we finally reveal a

magnificent head of long blonde hair and a sweet, beautiful

face. This is ELLE WOODS, 21, the Goddess Queen of Delta

Gamma. She talks on a pink, fuzzy phone.

ELLE:

(into the phone)

I love you, too!

Behind her, a "Go USC" banner is pinned to the pink wall. A

stack of "Cosmopolitan"s and "Glamour"s teeters on the

dresser. The closet overflows with trendy, designer clothes

in a predominance of pink.

ELLE (CONT'D)

(continuing; into phone)

I'll see you tonight.

She hangs up and lets out a squeal of joy, kissing Underdog's

head and taking the card out of his mouth. She reads it,

touched.

ELLE (CONT'D)

(continuing)

"Elle and Warner forever". Aww...

Underdog yips.
