Mission: Impossible script
Synopsis: When U.S. government operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his mentor, Jim Phelps (Jon Voight), go on a covert assignment that takes a disastrous turn, Jim is killed, and Ethan becomes the prime murder suspect. Now a fugitive, Hunt recruits brilliant hacker Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and maverick pilot Franz Krieger (Jean Reno) to help him sneak into a heavily guarded CIA building to retrieve a confidential computer file that will prove his innocence.

Immediately, there is activity, and PEOPLE everywhere. TWO

OTHERS come into the room and carry KASIMOV out.

ETHAN goes quickly to the body of the dead woman. He cheeks

the pulse in her neck, shines a penlight in her eye. He

strips the adrenalin kit and jabs the long needle into the

dead woman's thigh. He checks her pulse again, checking a

stopwatch. In about ten seconds, the woman's eyes open.

CLAIRE is her name, a French woman of thirty or so. She half

rolls over, GROANS, and wipes some of the blood from her



Did we get it?


We got it. On your feet.


I want to sleep. Can I sleep here.


Walk, just walk. Start walking.


I'm walking.


Talking's good, walking's better.


Sleeping's better.

Meanwhile, MEN in overalls take apart the room. The ceiling

lifts right off the walls, and the walls themselves start to

come down, revealing the "hotel room" to be an elaborate set

in the middle of an empty warehouse.

JACK comes into the room from the closet. He hands CLAIRE

her jewelry, including a watch and a wedding ring. ETHAN

stops what he's doing, noticing. She looks up at him



Are you all right Ethan. What's wrong

with you?


If you're gonna do this again Claire,

It's not gonna be on my watch.
