Girl Walks Into a Bar

Synopsis: A dentist teams up with a feisty would-be assassin to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin's payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a cross-town journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong club scattered across Los Angeles. Along the way, we are introduced to a series of idiosyncratic characters, from gangsters to exotic dancers, from ex-cons to cops, with the odd hatcheck girl and bartender thrown in for good measure.

I'm sorry, I'm waiting for someone.

You are

Uh, under normal circumstances,

I'd never turn you away,

but this is a business meeting.

What kind of business are you in?

Um, I work in real estate,

corporate real estate.

What's your name?

Look, I don't mean to be rude.

I swear if you knew me,

I'm the last guy to

say no to a beautiful-

Wow, you can't even tell me your name?

- Dennis.

- I don't believe you.

- Pardon me?

- Let's start over.

No, let's not- I'm not- I can't-

I, I is this like, uh...


- are you a professional?

A professional what?

- I don't..

- I'll tell you my name.

My name is Driver.

You're kidding me.

No, I don't have a sense of humor.

- You're Driver?

- Yes.

- Frank didn't mention that..

- I had a vagina?

It's not his job to talk

about my genitals, Nick.


I don't know how I feel about this.

Oh, if it changes things for you.

Well, yeah, it changes things.

By all means, pay attention to that.

How do I know for sure it's you?

You have a dental practice

on Wilshire and Doheny,

you've been married two

and a half years to Karen,

second marriage for you,

Your dog is named Hendrix,

you drive a Land Cruiser,

you hired Frank eight weeks ago.

Okay okay

You're not a cop, are you?

Do I look like a cop?


Frankly you look like

a Playmate of the month.

Want to frisk me?


Do you want to pat me down?

Are you messing with me, I can't tell.

I already told you, I

have no sense of humor.

- Are you wired?

- What?

Are you wearing a wire right

now recording our conversation?

- Of course not.

- Open your shirt.


You go to the gym three times a week,

what's the problem?

My turn

Jesus Christ, what are you doing?

It's LA, Nick, nobody notices

some chick lifting her shirt.

So how do We uh

how does this work?

Frank didn't walk you through it?

He said the less I knew the better

and it'd be done within the week.

That's pretty much all there is to it.

If you knew me, you'd realize

I'm really the most harmless guy.

We're all pretty harmless

until we're cornered, Nick.

Sometimes we find ourselves

in an unbearable situation,

options dry up and we

resort to drastic measures.

It's called survival.

I'm not a shrink, I'm not a priest,

you don't need to

justify yourself to me.

But I'm no idiot, I realize these things

go south more often than moi

Well, not exactly more

often than not, but yes,

there's always a risk.

Thing to remember with cops

regardless of what you read

in detective novels or watch on TV,

theyre pretty dumb

Until they're not.

If you feel so strongly about it,

maybe you should get up, walk away

and we never had this conversation.

I'm passed that point...

and Frank says you're the best

Well, I don't like to brag,

but you're welcome to ask around.

How did you learn to do this?

Why, you writing a book?

No, I'm sorry, I'm just-

It helps me to talk this through.

The less you know about

me, the better all around.


I helped liberate Kuwait.

I learned on the job exactly

how to be all that I can be.

Strange Work!

Safer for you trust me

How do you mean?

In this line of work, you

can't imagine the amount of guys

who fall for their targets

and then you've bought yourself

a world-class headache.

No kidding?

Most men see themselves as saviors,

they want to fix things.

Main problem between men

and women right there,

women like to talk about

their problems in detail

ad nauseam

Men just want to fix them

and move onto something

more stimulating.

- Yeah.

- Like blow jobs, sure.

Why did you say that out loud?
