Pineapple Express

Synopsis: Lazy court-process clerk and stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city's most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him--and it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they're not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia: incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express.

you and me deal with those criminals.

You ever dealt with a drug dealer?

It's terrible, it's weird, it's awkward.

They think they're your friend,

but they're not.

Dale, I get your point. Thanks

for your input. Next caller, please.

I can't come.


Why the f*ck not, Dale?

I just... Look, I can't come.

I have a lot of stuff to do tomorrow.

It's a bad day for me.

Jesus Christ, Dale.

When were you gonna tell me?

My mom has been shopping all day.

- Why?

- She's already planning on couscous.

I said I might be able to go,

so why is she doing that already?

- Now I look like an asshole.

- You are one.

Come on, don't say that.

I just can't go. I have a job.

- Fine.

- "Fine"?

Don't come. I don't care.

Then why have you been inviting me?

I thought you wanted me to go.

If you don't wanna meet them,

I don't want you to.

I want to. I can't. I have a job.

I'm sorry. What do you want from me?

I just know they'll like you, that's all.

You're great, and you're funny...

...and you're sexy.

I just want them to see that.

- You want them to see that I'm sexy?

- Hey, people?

- Hi, Mr. Edwards.

- Can I help you?

No, I'm good. Thank you, though.

Yeah? I see you don't have

a visitor's badge. That's why I ask.

- I'm with her, actually.

- Actually, this is my boyfriend.

I heard that. I wish I didn't hear that,

but I just heard that.

What's that supposed to mean?

I'm just wondering why you don't

date a nice guy your own age.

- She's very mature for her age.

- Yeah.

- Angie, hey. How's it going?

- Hey.

Hey, Clark, how you doing, man?

What's up?

I'm good, bro. I'm good.

Dude, I wanted to tell you.

You were hilarious today

in drama class.

Your Jeff Goldblum impression

made me pee my pants.

I wish.

Seth Rogen

Seth Aaron Rogen (; born April 15, 1982) is a Canadian-American actor, voice actor, comedian, writer, producer, and director. He began his career performing stand-up comedy during his teenage years. While still living in his native Vancouver, he landed a supporting role in Judd Apatow's series Freaks and Geeks. Shortly after he moved to Los Angeles for his role, Freaks and Geeks was officially cancelled after one season due to low viewership. Rogen later got a part on sitcom Undeclared, which also hired him as a writer. After landing his job as a staff writer on the final season of Da Ali G Show, Apatow guided him toward a film career. Rogen made his first movie appearance in Donnie Darko with a minor role in 2001. Rogen was cast in a supporting role and credited as a co-producer in Apatow's directorial debut, The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Universal Pictures subsequently cast him as the lead in Apatow's films Knocked Up and Funny People. Rogen co-starred as Steve Wozniak in Universal's Steve Jobs biopic in 2015. In 2016, he developed the AMC television series Preacher with his writing partner Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin. He also serves as a writer, executive producer, and director with Goldberg. Rogen and Goldberg co-wrote the films Superbad, Pineapple Express, The Green Hornet, This Is the End, and directed both This Is the End and The Interview; all of which Rogen starred in. He has also done voice work for the films Horton Hears a Who!, the Kung Fu Panda film series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, Monsters vs. Aliens, Paul, Sausage Party, and will provide the voice of Pumbaa in the 2019 remake of The Lion King. more…
