Eraserhead Script



Are you Henry?






Girl named Marry called

on the pay-phone.



Said she's set her parents

and you're invited to dinner.



Oh, yeah?



Thank you very much.



You're late, Henry.



I didn't know if you wanted me

to come or not. Where have you been?



You never come

around anymore.



Dinner's almost ready.



Come on in.



Hello there.






I'm very pleased to meet you.



Sit down.



It's Henry. isn't it?






Marry tells me you're a very

nice fellow. What do you do?



I-I am on vacation.



What did you do?



Oh, I'm sorry.



I work in the Lapell's factory.



I am a printer.



Henry is very clever in printing.



Yes, he sounds very clever.



I thought I heard a stranger.



We've got chicken tonight. Strangest

damn things, they're man-made.



Little damn things,

smaller than my fist.



But they're new.



I'm Bill.



- Hello, I'm Henry.

- Henry is at Lapell's factory.



Print is your business, ha?

Plumbing is mine.



   years. I've seen has never had changed

for patching to the hell how it is now!



I put every damn pipe

in this neighborhood.



- Dad!

- Bill!



Pipes ain't growing alone. I make sure

they don't. Look at my knees.



- Look at my knees!

- Bill!



- Are you hungry?

- Bill!



The girls had heard this before...



but    years ago, I had

an operation on my arm here.



Doctors said I won't be able to use it.

But what the hell do they know, I said.



And I rubbed it for a half hour every day

and I've got those... I could move it a little.



And I got... so I could turn a faucet

and pretty soon I had my arm back again.



Now I can't feel a damn

thing in it. All numb...



I'm afraid to cut it, you know.



Mary usually does the carving but

maybe tonight you'll do it, Henry.



All right with you?



Of course.



I'd be happy to.



I just... just cut them up

like regular chickens?



Sure, just cut them up

like regular chickens.



It'll be all right.



Excuse me.



Well, Henry, what do you know?



I don't know much of anything.



Henry, may I speak

to you a minute?



Over here.



Did you and Mary

have sexual intercourse?



- Why?

- Did you?



- Why are you asking me this question?

- I have a very good reason.



But now I want you to tell me.



I-I'm very... I love Mary.



Henry, I asked you if you

and Mary had sexual intercourse.



- I-I don't think it's any of your business.

- Henry!






You're in very bad trouble

if you won't cooperate.



Well... I...



- Mary!

- Mother!



- Answer me!

- I'm too nervous.



- There's a baby. It's at the hospital.

- Mom!



- And you're the father.

- It isn't possible...



- It's still unsure it is a baby.

- It's premature, but there's a baby.



After the two of you are married which should

be very soon, you can pick the baby up.



Mom, he's got

his nose bleeding.



I'll get ice.



Will you mind, Henry,

you and I getting married?






This dinner is getting cold.



Is there any mail?






Shut up!



Shut up!



I can't stand it.

I'm going home.



- What are you talking about?

- I can't even sleep. I'm loosing my mind.



You're on vacation, now.

You can take care of it for a night.



Will you come back tomorrow?



All I need is a decency of that sleep.



Why don't you just stay home?



I'll do what I wanna do.



And you better take real good

care of things while I'm gone.



Oh, you are sick...



Move over.



Move over.

Move over!



I locked myself

out of my apartment.



And it's so late.



Where's your wife?



She must've gone

back to her parents, again.



I'm not sure.



Can I spend a night here?



In heaven everything is fine



In heaven everything is fine



In heaven everything is fine



You've got your good things

and I've got mine



In heaven everything is fine



In heaven everything is fine



In heaven everything is fine



You've got your good things

and you've got mine



In heaven...

...everything is fine



Ok, Paul!



Hi ya sonny,
