Jesus' Son Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Jesus' Son script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Billy Crudup and Samantha Morton movie.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Jesus' Son. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

On the day, He'll open all

our eyes clean with His light,

[ Clears Throat ]



Lookwhat they gave me

I was asking them if,

when we die,



if there's an ending

to everything we know



And if there is,

then why don't we just die now,

die to everything we know



And maybe living and dying

are the same thing



And maybe the fact

that we've turned them

into two different things



is whywe feel so lost




[ Chuckles ]




I'm not planning on dying

anytime soon,



but ifI do,

I'm sure to come back

and tell you all about it



No, don't do that

Do us both a favor

Like, the best that you've got

And a brain surgeon













That person is not right

Not at all Not one bit



As long as my instructions

are ''audiable'' to him,

it does not concern me



 Well, okay, okay

Don't chew my head off




All right The eye man

is on vacation or something



But the operator is calling

around to see if she can find

vision in his one good eye



So he's alive

There's nothin' wrong

with the guy



It's just one ofthose things



What do you do

 A rabbit !

 Something thumped



You hit him




Rabbit stew



Where's my hunting knife ?

[ Grunting ]



Wake up !



[ Sobbing ]

[ Sniffing ]



Hey, wake up



Hey, wanna buy a pill ?



What kind ofpill ?



It's, um, psychedelic

mushrooms all ground up



That's the biggest pill

I've ever seen



Look at it



It's like an egg



It's like an Easter thing



Let's take him into ''A''



Areyou hearing any unusual

sounds or voices ?






Not exactly



Not exactly ?

Now, what does that mean ?



I'm not ready

to go into that



It's okay



Areyou in pain ?



[ Gagging ]




[ Groaning ]







Don't get tricky

with the moustache



Okay so far ?



Yeah, so far



[ Chuckles ]

I'll do the other side



That would make sense,




There are some people out there

who would like to know

a thing or two about you



Would you describe yourself

for those people ?



I don't know



I'm like a fat

piece of shit, I guess



He's overweight

I've been shot

twice, though



Twice ?

Yeah, once

by each wife



Total of three bullets

making four holes



Three in, one out



Huh, and you're

still alive



Areyou kidding ?

[ Laughs ]




Well, that is too bad

Because it makes you sound

stupid asking if I'm alive,



'cause obviously I am



Well maybe

I mean alive




in a deeper sense



You could be talking

and still not be alive

in a deeper sense



Well, there's no deeper shit

than the kind we're in now

I'll tell you that



What are you talking about ?

It's great here



They even give you cigarettes

Well, they didn't

give me any yet






Here you go




Pay me back

when you get yours ?






You got a wife ?



No No, but I just can't

talk about that right now



Look, there's no problem,

butyou don't have to talk

about it



So what did you say

when she shot you ?



I said, ''You shot me''



[ Laughing ]

Both times ? Both wives ?



Well, the first time I

didn't say anything, 'cause

she shot me in the mouth



All right,

soyou couldn't talk ?



No, I was knocked out cold

is the reason I couldn't talk



And I still remember

the dream




that I had when I was

knocked out that time



What was the dream ?

Well, now how can I

explain that toyou ?



It was a dream

It didn't mean

a fucking thing, man




anything at all



Well, there is

one thing

Hmm ?



The dream that I had

keeps coming back

over and over,



and I mean

when I'm awake



Every time I think

about my first wife,



I remember that she

pulled the trigger on me,

then here comes the dream



[ Laughs, Sighs ]



Did you ever see

that Elvis Presley movie,




I did see that, and I was

just gonna mention that



You saw that ?





Okay, you're all done



There was a song

'' Follow That Dream'' too



Oh Look in the mirror



All right

What do you see ?



How did I get so fat

when I hardly eat ?



Is that all ?



[ Groans ]

Wrecked cars ?



Any people in them ?




Who ?



People are just

dead meat now, man



Is that really how it is ?



How would I know how it is ?

I just got here, and it stinks



Areyou kidding ?

Hey, they're pumping

Halidol by the quart



It's a playpen



Yeah, well,

I'm older than you are



You can still go on the wheel

a couple of more times



and get off with all your arms

and legs stuck on right



Not me



Hey, you're doin' fine



Hey, talk into here



Talk into your bullet hole ?






Talk into my bullet hole

and tell me that I'm fine












































There's a price to be paid

for dreaming










[ Man Muttering, Coughing ]



Oh, there he is

Gotta go



How's it going ?




Here's the, uh

Here's the next issue



You know,

it's part of your job

to touch the residents here



These people

more than anything,

they need to be touched




So when you say

hello to them,



be sure to put

your hands on them



Okay, okay

Okay, good









































Why I must dream 









and all screwed up,

you know ?



Did you ever

do that ? Huh ?



Walk past the houses

with the curtains

in the windows



and you feel like

you're to tin' a big cart

of sins behind you ?



And you ever think that

behind those windows,



behind those curtains,



that people are leadin'

normal, happy lives ?



Huh ?



Well, that's my goal now,



is to be one ofthose

people on the other side

ofthose curtains



Have my own window,

you know ? Hi










[ Chattering ]



I'll driveyou

Is anyone going downtown ?



No, sorry

No, sorry, I'm not

Areyou going home ?



Yeah, but I'm stopping

by my mother's

Where areyou headed ?



Las Calinas Boulevard

Oh, I'll take you there

Come on



So, what brought you here ?



You mean to AA ?

No, to Phoenix



Oh, uh, I don't

A couple reasons

For one, I thought

my brother was here



Well, is he ?

Uh, no



It's right here

I mean, I don't know

I don't know where he is







Uh, my girl

my girlfriend's not here

[ Indistinct ]













[ Quiet Chattering ]









[ Muttering Continues ]



What ?



I can't

I'm sorry, but

I can't understand



It's all right, Max

It's all right



Here, let go

[ Yelling ]



All right, fine



Max got a letter today

His wife's divorcing him



She dropped him off

here two years ago

and never came back



[ Muttering Continues ]



Here, I think you'd

better wait outside



[ Grunting ]



Come on, Max

Let's go inside



[ Yelling Continues ]





















































Take what you need















[ Muttering ]










before the engine caught

him, but he was wrong



My first husband

fell through a thousand

evergreen branches



in the mountains

up around Cholo



He was a tree surgeon,

and he crushed his head







Well, two boyfriends

who died in the Marines



Another one named Zack

got killed in a one car




right out of basic training



Almost every

man I've ever loved



ended up getting killed



I told you about my

third husband, didn't I ?



The one who almost

bought the pet shop



[ Both Chuckling ]



[ Sobbing ]

He was the one who OD'd

He's the one who OD'd



You know, ifit wasn't

for him dying, I would still

be out there with that man



I was married

to a black guy once,



but he got shanked

in prison



That means stabbed,

stabbed to death



Doesn't it make you

grateful ?



Because they were, theywere

people just like us,



only unluckier



i have an announcement

to make, and an apology






uh, left out somebody's

birthday last month



Uh, Isaac Kristofferson







Whoo !




 [ Cheering ]



Many happy returns

toyou, Isaac



There will be, uh,



six birthday people

next month




[ Chattering ]




Beverly Home News



to find out who they are



Whoo !

Whoohoo !

Way to go !



[ Laughs ]



 Sweet desire

can be the way






Ohh !

Oh, hey !



[ Chattering ]













Oh, hi




How areyou ?



I'm fine

What about you ?



I was hoping

maybe I'd seey ou here
