EXT. LONDON. VIEWS. DAY.
EXT. BRIDGET'S STREET. BRIDGET.
EXT. BRIDGET'S FLAT. SKYLIGHT WINDOW. DAY.
INT. BRIDGET JONES'S FLAT. BEDROOM. DAY.
F*** a duck.
As she crawls out of bed.
Cut to Bridget emerging from behind the couch, by Sharon and Tom and Jude - making a 'don't worry - I'm fine' sign - then taking the joint back again casually - having a puff - and there she goes again, down behind the couch.
INT. BRIDGET'S FLAT. LIVING ROOM. DAY.
Have made big decision. This year will take total control of my life and become perfect modern woman. Resolution Number One - in order to mark triumphant year in which everything stops being sh*t and turns out v.g. - will keep a diary.
Bridget cross-legged, writing in new diary.
Not time in short credit sequence to demonstrate all resolutions - but major ones include... [During this sequence she is seen enacting most of these] will stop smoking, stop drinking... (She stubs out an only just lit cigarette - throws away a glass of wine and then sort of catch-scoops it just in time back into the glass, has a sip - nasty! - so throws it away again.) …a lot. Stop fantasizing about unrealistic men...
INT. BRIDGET'S BATHROOM. INT./EXT.
INT. BRIDGET'S BEDROOM. DAY.
...and, crucial I believe, will always throw yesterday's used pants in laundry basket... (She pounces on a rogue pair, but we see, as she turns towards the laundry basket, that she actually has another pair of pants stuck to the back of her thigh. The phone goes. She walks towards it.) Will also live own life without being bullied by people into things I don't want to do.
Yes, don't worry, Mum, I'll be there.
She hangs up.
BRIDGET (CONT'D): Very bad start.
INT. BRIDGET'S FLAT. HALLWAY. NIGHT.
Happy New Year, Bridget.
Thank you, sweetheart.
Doesn't matter; giving up anyway, of course.
What a lovely, caring person.
Bridget walks on through.
INT. ST. PANCRAS STATION. PLATFORM. DAY.
STATION ANNOUNCER V.O.: Passengers are reminded once again that you do not need to look like a stick insect to be attractive. Marilyn Monroe is a good example - and Madonna in the early days - and, of course, that girl who plays the flatmate in Ally McBeal and Benton's ex-girlfriend in E.R.
INT. TRAIN COMPARTMENT. DAY.
V. important - will not fall for any more of the following: commitment phobics, misogynists, megalomaniacs, freeloaders or perverts. (She looks at male passengers beside her and coming towards her. By the time she reaches 'pervert', the camera whizzes back to 'misogynist' man.) Will also become more intelligent by reading excellent books of prize-winning quality. (She takes out a copy of 'The Famished Road' by Ben Okri. Nods intelligently as she starts to read - we glimpse a picture of the author on the back as we do - and instantly her eyelids start to droop.) Though must be careful not to lose touch with popular culture.
BRIDGET (CONT'D): O Fergie, Fergie, Fergie: who told you you looked good in that?
INT. BRIDGET'S OFFICE. GENERAL OFFICE. DAY.
BRIDGET (CONT'D): ...although, pretty damn sure that he looked at me in distinctly unprofessional manner at Christmas party. Though might have been amazement at number of flat notes in rendering of Nilsson classic.
INT. BRIDGET'S OFFICE. GENERAL OFFICE. NIGHT.
INT. TRAIN COMPARTMENT. DAY.
BRIDGET (CONT'D): ...would say 'f***ing gorgeous' - but certain Mother will at some point read diary and therefore the less four letter words the better - not to mentions of blow-jobs and nobs up back bottom etc.
INT./EXT. BRIDGET'S PARENTS' HOUSE. FRONT DOOR. DAY.
