3 Women

Synopsis: Pinky is an awkward adolescent who starts work at a spa in the California desert. She becomes overly attached to fellow spa attendant, Millie when she becomes Millie's room-mate. Millie is a lonely outcast who desperately tries to win attention with constant up-beat chatter. They hang out at a bar owned by a strange pregnant artist and her has-been cowboy husband. After two emotional crises, the three women steal and trade personalities until they settle into a new family unit that seems to give each woman what she was searching for.

- Oh.

- Sort of talk 'em into what they're supposed to do.

- Yeah.

Okay, now, follow me.


I don't believe it.

- If Bunweill had seen that you'd be in hot trouble.

- You said all the way.

Well, now let's go do

some exercises over here.

- It's okay.

- [Gasping]

Now we're gonna exercise

these hurt legs.

What's the matter?

Haven't ya ever seen twins before?

[Woman Chattering]

[Millie] These are our individual hot tubs. The

water comes directly from the springs to here.

And over here

ya got your rest area.

They probably won't let ya work the tubs

until you've been here a week or two.

There's really

nothin' to it...

but ya just gotta know

when somebody's gettin' a bad reaction.

Sometimes they can't get out by themselves,

and if you leave 'em in too long they could die.

- They could die?

- Yeah. Uh-oh.


About that floater we had yesterday

Oh, Graham,

I don't know how that happened.

Took her blood pressure

and she was fine.

Next she's floating

face down in the pool.

- Is our, uh, malpractice premium for this quarter paid?

- Yeah.

- Lammoreaux?

- Yes, Dr. Maas?

- How is Miss Rose doing?

- Just fine, Dr. Maas.

Well, good.

You two should, uh, get along very well.

- Don't you have something in common?

- What?

I don't know. Aren't you both

from Texas or something?

- Couldn't you find a suit that fits you better, Rose?

- Oh, yeah.

- No, ma'am.

- Well, try.

[Dr. Maas]

Vivian, have you ever been to Texas?

- Is your name Lammoreaux?

- Uh-huh.

- You French?

- Nah, I'm American.

- Are you from Texas?

- Yeah, near Longview. You?

I'm from Houston, but I've been

in California for about three years now.

You can have this locker

right over here next to mine.

Thank you.

Here's your card, Rose.

Do not punch in until you are dressed.

Robert Altman

Robert Bernard Altman (February 20, 1925 – November 20, 2006) was an American film director, screenwriter, and film producer. A five-time nominee of the Academy Award for Best Director and an enduring figure from the New Hollywood era, Altman was considered a "maverick" in making films with a highly naturalistic but stylized and satirical aesthetic, unlike most Hollywood films.
