The Nanny Diaries script
Synopsis: A college student, Annie Braddock (Scarlett Johansson), with a working-class background takes a nanny job with Mr. and Mrs. X (Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney), an affluent but highly dysfunctional Manhattan couple. She must find a way to manage her studies, a new boyfriend, and the demands of her new employers and their spoiled offspring.

You're a native

New Yorker...


Or perhaps this

is Annie Braddock?

You grew up

riding the subways

Running with people

Up in Harlem,

down on Broadway

There you are

lost in the shadows

Searching for someone

You're the heart and soul

of New York City...

On that spring afternoon,

it seemed my future

was finally set.

A Central Park bag lady

I would be.

At least I'd finally get

to live in Manhattan.

But before I officially

surrendered to fate,

something... or rather,




- Whoa!

- Ahh ahh!

Hello there.


Are you okay?

Get off of me,

you pervert.

Do you belong to anyone,

little man?


- I belong to you.


Oh God.

Thank you so much.

You just averted

a minor disaster.

The woman featured here...

the one wearing

the Dior snakeskin jacket

and Louis Vuitton


is unfortunately not

Annie Braddock.

New York City girl...

She is, in fact, a perfect

female specimen

from the

Upper East Side clan.

For the purpose of

this case study,

we'll just call her

Mrs. X.

Hi, I'm Mrs. X.

Let me apologize for

my feral son.

Oh, no need to


Please, I love kids.

I'm Annie.

You're a nanny?


- No, I'm not.

- No wonder.

- You're so good with children.

- Oh, I'm not.

Actually, I just

lost my nanny Bertie,

which is why I'm out in

this godforsaken park

- by myself.

- Okay.

- She left us to go get married.

- All right.

Oh my God.

Are... are you employed?

- No, unfortunately, l...

- Fabulous!

Look, here...

here is my card.

Please please please

call me later this week.

We'll schedule a lunch.

Anywhere you'd like to go.
