My Blueberry Nights

Synopsis: Elizabeth's heart is broken. For solace, she drops in late at night a few times at Jeremy's diner for blueberry pie a la mode; they talk. Once, he watchers her sleep, her head on the counter. Abruptly, she leaves New York City to get away from her pain. She works a couple of jobs in Memphis. There, a heart-broken cop is drinking himself into oblivion, his ex occasionally showing up where he drinks and Lizzy works. Then, she's in Nevada, working at a casino where she uses her savings (she wants a car) to stake Leslie, a busted gambler, in a high rollers' game. After, Beth drives Leslie to Vegas where Leslie's estranged father lives. Broken relationships. What about Jeremy?

Hello? Who!?

No. I'm sorry,

I don't know anyone by that name

No, listen,

I get about a hundred customers a night

I can't keep track of them all.

Do you know...

well tell me what he likes to eat

Cause I remember people by what they order

Not by their names

''Meat Loaf? ''

Well, I know a Meat Loaf with Mashed Potatoes.

I know Meat Loaf who likes

Well, with Cheese Fries,

Pouched Egg, Onion Rings

What? He doesn't like potatoes?

Why don't you, well, yeah give me your number

And if I see him, I'll tell him to call you

Yeah, I promise. I will. Ok bye

He's 5'11 with dark brown hair

Sorry, I can't think of any Meat Loafs

with Cheese Fries

or Onion Rings or Pouched Eggs

Or Fried Fillet of Fish

that match that description

Last time we were here,

I think he had the pork chops

Oh why didn't you say so?

That's because we supposedly

have the best pork chops in the city

You ever tried them?

No, I haven't

Why not?

What, are you religious or something?

Listen, have you seen him or not?

I have actually.

He came in here for dinner last night

He ordered two pork chops

One with mashed potatoes and

one with string beans.

I guess he was hungry

No, he didn't eat both of them.

Our portions are too big

for a person to eat two

No, one was for him and one was

for his girlfriend

Look! Just get to the point...

Don't... Don't change the subject!

Are you seeing someone else?

Who is she?

I hope you both drop dead!

If someone comes in here looking for me

give him these keys

What do I tell him?

Tell him he's an asshole!


Hey, did he pick up the keys?

No, not yet

Do you have an extra cigarette?


Rolled it myself


You okay?


I haven't had one in a while

I only smoke when I get stressed out

Well, you shouldn't worry so much

That way you'll avoid lung cancer

Do you think she's pretty?


The girl he was in here with

Oh, she was okay I guess... I mean

Not the type I would prefer

to have my pork chops with

but ''each man to his own'', right?

Yeah right



I need someone to talk to

Do you think he'll pick up the keys?

I don't know

I've had customers leaving keys here for years

Sometimes they pick them up in a few days

Sometimes it takes a few weeks

Well, what about most of the time?

Most of the time, the keys stay in the jar

Well why do you keep them?

You should just throw them out


No I couldn't do that

Why not?

If I threw these keys away

then those doors will be closed forever

And that shouldn't be up to me to decide

Should it?

Guess I'm just looking for a reason

Well, from my observations

sometimes it's better off not knowing

and other times there's no reason to be found

Everything has a reason

It's like these pies and cakes

At the end of every night

the cheesecake and the apple pie

are always completely gone

The peach cobbler

and the chocolate mousse cake

are nearly finished

But there's always a whole blueberry pie

left untouched

So what's wrong with the blueberry pie?

There's nothing's wrong with the blueberry pie

It's just people make other choices

You can't blame the blueberry pie

It's just no one wants it


I want a piece

With ice cream?

Leave it to me

Here we go

I hope you enjoy it


It's not bad


You should try some

No, I'm alright. I have my own

Will you tell me the stories

behind those other keys?
