Jude Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Jude script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Kate Winslet movie.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Jude. 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!

It's naturalfor a woman

to bring a live thing into the world.

It's late.



To the bride and the groom!



We'llsend that to Aunt Drusilla.



Aunt Drusilla.



- What should we callher?

- Rosie's pig.

It isn't yourown?









- You've got enough ofyourown.

- It's very fashionable in London.



Do you care

Leave it on.



I wantto see us. You can close youreyes

ifyou like and pretend it's dark.



Jude. Ask me nicely.



- Ask you what?

- What you want me to do.



- I don't know.

- What?!



We'lljust have to make it up.



He's nevergoing to get here.



He's probably bloody drunk.



We'lljust have to do it ourselves.



- Be careful with those.

- Then find somewhere else for them.



This table is forthe lard.



Right move her.



- Where do you want it?

- On this side.



Thank God it's dead.



What's God got to do with pig killing?



It's a bit late to be looking at otherwomen.



I won'tfeelsorry foryou.



You should have listened to me.

Fawleys are not cut out for marriage.



- I didn't have a choice.

- You had no brains



- Five months gone and not even a bump.

- Please don't say that.



ShallI get your room ready?



No, I'd bettergo.



"Dear Jude, I've decided

to leave, and I won't be back.



"I know you think

I tricked you into marrying me,



"but I swear

I really believed I was pregnant.



"I'm going to Australia to start again.



"Perhaps now you'll be free

to go to Christminster



"and become a university man.



"Good luck. "



Can I help you ?



..then there's your back-to-back houses,

yourgrubby children hanging off scaffolding.



It's the same city.



Maybe a five-minute walk

from Church Street to "Scum Street".



Why don't we go over?

Why don't we go over and knock on theirdoors?



Because they've convinced us this is

the way it is No change. Why change?



They've won the argument.



They educate their kind to win the argument.



I'm looking for Jude Fawley.

I believe he works here.



- You'llfind him around the corner, miss.

- Thank you.



Jude Fawley? I'm yourcousin, Sue Bridehead.



Aunt Drusilla wrote and told me

you were in Christminster.



- Hello.

- Hello.



Don't take this wrongly,

butyou don't look like cousins



- Why is that?

- You're pretty, and he's got a stone for a face.



- A big nose is a sign of nobility.

- Shut up.



They have the same noses. Look at them.



One each, right in the middle oftheirfaces.



- Tell me some more about my cousin.

- He's a scholar, a true scholar.



- He's a sinner.

- Why is that?



- What was the last one called?

- Oh, you mean Vicky.



- No, Florence,

- The one before Elspeth.



- Mm...nice, isn't it?

- Oh, lovely.



Nothing up the sleeve, right?



Oh, yes! Now, that is good, that is good.



Jude. Jude!






Notthere, it's had luck.

They used to burn martyrs there.



- Are you superstitious, Jude?

- No.



Noram I, but I think

it's betterto be safe, don'tyou?



- Where are we going?

- Somewhere living, away from this university.



- But it's wonderful here.

- It's all stone.



- Tha buildings yes. I meantthe scholars.

- I was talking aboutthe scholars, too.



Finish it.



- Now much are these two, please?

- Ten shillings



- You're not going to buy them?

- Why not?



- Would you like me to wrap them up?

- No, thank you.



- Why have you wrapped them up?

- To avoid giving my landlady a heart attack.



- You're being rather confrontational.

- No, I just wonder why you go to church at all.



Because a part of me is still

a superstitious, backward country girl.



- You mean, like me?

- I didn't knowyou were a girl.



Do I irritate you?






Even when I'm trying to prove

how much cleverer than you I am?



You are.



- Don't say that.

- Why not?



Because it's notthe sort ofthing

you should admit to.



Why not, if it's true?



- Say something.

- I enjoy listening to you.






"God, like the man who sits at herside



"Who watches and catches the laughter

which softly tears me to tatters



"Nothing is left of me

each time I see her."






What does the law say

about marrying yourcousin?



It's not aboutthat. It says nothing about

falling in love with them. Quite common, I hear.



- What do you think, Jude?

- You two are cousins, you tellme.



- Sue?

- Now do you know?



- You've got a woman's hands.

- You'llhave to do betterthan that.



- "Pruples" doesn't count.

- You've been following me?



I came to say goodbye.



- Won't you introduce me to yourfriend?

- It's Wilkes



Now do you do, MrWilkes?



- Why are you leaving?

- I had a rowwith my landlady.



Sha found a statue, threw it on the floor

and ground the head to pieces with her hell.



Sha made sure I lost my job as well.



- Where will you go ?

- I don't know. I'm going to teach somewhere.



- You can teach here in Christminster.

- Everyone in this city is a teacher, Jude.



I've got a friend who can help. Mr Phillotson.

I was his pupilin Marygreen.



Don't worry about me.



I was going to look him up, anyway.

No harm in asking.



Why do you want me to stay?



Because we've onlyjust met



- Mr Phillotson?

- Yes.



My name is Jude Fawley.

I was your pupilin Marygreen.



Yes, of course you were.



- Are you an old pupil, too?

- No, this is my cousin, Sue Bridehead.



Mr Phillotson, you once showed me

Christminster, the same day you left Marygreen.



I came here because ofyou, sir,

to become a university man.



Through here.



I gave up the idea of university a long time ago.



Other dreams have replaced it.

I'm very happy as a schoolmaster.



Here we are.



Sue's been looking forwork as a teacher.



- You've already had some experionce.

- No.



Is it very hard to find work?



- I'm thinking of applying to a training college.

- That's always a good idea.



What I need forthis school

is a second-yeartransfer.



- What about an apprentice?

- Jude!



- Are you serious about being a teacher, Sue?

- Yes, of course.



I'm sure it willbe usefulfor both ofyou.



- I can't afford to pay you very much.

- That doesn't matter.



All right then.



One times seven?




- Two times seven?

-   .



- Three times seven?

-   .



- Fourtimes seven?

-   .



- Bye, Miss.

- Bye.



Mount of Olives, Mount Moriah.



The Valley of Jehoshaphat.



Tha City ofZion.



Calvaty. All names

at the very root of our history.



This is an exact model ofthe City of Jerusalem

as itwas at the time of our Lord, Jesus Christ.



And they took Jesus

through these hot, dusty, narrow streets...



Now does anyone knowwhat Jerusalem

looked like then? I'm sure he doesn't.



Ofcourse he does. Tha modelis copied

from the best conjecturalmaps.



Why Jerusalem?

Why not athens Rome or Alexandria?



Because ofwhat Jerusalem mean to us

as Christians Surely you must see that?



- Why are you so sceptical?

- I'm not, I wasjust pointing out...






- What a surprise!

- No, it isn't . You know I was here.



- You've been watching me allthe time.

- Mr Phillotson.



Jude. Yourcousin is such a clever girl,

she criticises allthis unmercifully.



Please don't callme a clever girl.

There are too many of us these days.



- I didn't mean anything.

- I knowyou didn't. Come on, Jude.



This accusation, written :

"This is Jesus, the king of the Jews."



- He wanted to impress you.

- Not cleverly done.



He can't be clever. He's fond ofyou.



I'm fond of him, too.

It doesn't mean I go around patronising him.



I don'tfeel at all guilty.



"Tell me, Muse, a man, many ways



"who wandered farand wide

after he sacked the holy city ofTroy."



- Willyou kiss it for luck?

- No.



A letterforthe Dean of Admissions.



They took it.



Want a hat, Jude?



- What's the problem?

- It's raining.



- It's what?

- Thoughtyou were the intelligent one.






"Sir, I have read yourletterwith interest,



"and judging from your description

of yourself as a working man,



"I think you have

a much better chance of success in life



"by sticking to yourown trade

than by adopting any othercourse.



"Yours sincerely, the Dean ofAdmissions. "



I don't give a damn for any provost,

ward, principalor bloody Master of Arts.



I'd lick them on theirown ground

ifthey'd give me the chance.



We learned more outside the book, than in.



- Can you say the Creed in Latin?

- Yes, I can, I definitely can.



Excuse me. Quiet, please, quiet!



The gentleman in the corner is to rehearse

the articles of his belief in the Latin tongue



forthe edification ofthis company.



- Thank you.

- Here"s yourchance.



Credo in unum Deum, Patrem,




Factorem coeli et terrae,



visibilium omnium et invisibilium.



Crucifixus etiam pro nobis:

sub Pontio Pilato passus,



et sepultus est.



Et resurrexit tertia die,

secundum Scripturas.



Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum



et vivificantem,

qui ex Patre Filio que procedit.



You bloody fools.



Which one ofyou knows

if I said it right or not?



It might be The Ratcatcher's Daughter

in double Dutch for all you know.



Sue! Sue!






I've been drinking Sue.



- Willyou let me in?

- All right



- I can do it.

- Jude.



You'lllearn more than they can overteach you.



I'm sure this is the lastthing you wantto hear,



butyou don't need a double firstfrom

Christminsterto do some good in the world.



- You should try to eat something.

- He's too old foryou.



I'llbring you breakfast in the morning.



Out ofwork already?






Don't you make a fool ofyourselfover her, Jude.



Marrying Arabella was

the worst thing you over did, untilnow.



Don't say that.



Your parents could'ny live together

and nor could Sue's



They made each other's lives a living hell,

and leftyou two as good as orphans



- They were a different generation.

- With the same curse over their heads.



- Tha Fawleys are not meantfor marrying.

- That's an old wives' tale.



Since when did you stop believing in them?



"Dear Jude,

I'm writing from Melchester,



"where MrPhillotson and I have moved.



"He is teaching at a new school,

and I am studying at a training college.



"The rules here are strictbeyond belief

and ourvisiting hours are limited



"but I would love to see you again. "



Your hands are rough, Jude.



So would yours be

ifthey held a mallet and chisel allday.



I like them, they are noble hands.



What's wrong?



It'lltake me a while to get used to you again.



- I come here to forgel Melchester.

- So where are we?



France, Australia, Spain, Canada, Timbuktu.



- Is it that had at the training school?

- Yes.



It's only anotheryear.



Mr Phillotson thinks he can get me a good job

when I've finished.



- Now is he?

- He's been such a help.



I'm sure he has.



- Are you being silly?

- No.






I didn't realise he took

a long-term interest in yourfuture.



- He's a friend.

- I'm sure he doesn't see it that way.



- An old man like him?

- He isn't that old.



You said so yourself.



- What's the matter?

- I wish you would be more open with me.



All right he asked me to marry him.



- What did you say?

- I said I'd think about it.



I'm sorry,

maybe I shouldn't have asked you to visit.



I'm not visiting, I've moved to Melchester.









Let me in.



They locked me up for being out with you,

so I jumped out the window,



crossed the deepest river in England,

and here I am.



I can't get warm.



- I'llborrow some clothes from the landlady.

- Don't do that, for God's sake!



Then you'llhave to wearsome of mine.



- Now aboutthis?

- It might be a bit small.



I'llwait outside.



- I broughtyou some brandy.

- No glass?



- In the cupboarrd. I'd have to clean them.

- Don't worry, I'lldrink it like a man.



- Whatwillthey say at the school?

- I don't care.



- I'llgo back as soon as they're dty.

- It's late.



You could stay here tonight



I wish I could get warm.



- Thank you, Jude.

- Forwhat?



For being here.



- I'm glad you came to me.

- There's no one else.



I should letyou sleep






I couldn't sleep



Why are you looking at me like that?



- Does it frighten you?

- No. I'm not afraid of any man.



Why not?



Because no man willtouch a woman

unless she invites him to.



Untilshe says with a look or a smile,

"Come on", he's always afraid.



Ifyou neversay it or look it,




You are the timid sex.



ShallI try again...



..to close my eyes and fallasleep?



Good morning Jude.






- Can we talk?

- Yes.



- Is it about her running away from the school?

- And coming to you that night



There have been rumours. She's been expelled

from school because of them.



- That isn'tfair.

- Jude.



I wantto be able to defend heragainst

any scandal. I need to knowwhat happened.



Nothing happened.



- Is that the truth?

- So help me God.



Sha stayed with me, but as a cousin.



Then we must both help her now.



- Hello.

- Hello.



- Did you go to the school?

- Yes. They won't take me back.



They think you and I

are having some kind of affair.



They even suggested I marry you

for the sake of my reputation.



- I saw Mr Phillotson today. He said he'd help.

- I don't want his help.



He was anxious. He cares foryou very much.



I know.



- I have nevertold you about my past.

- Go on, then, tellme about it.



I'm marriod, Sue.



I haven't seen herforyears,

but I'm stillmarried.



Why are you telling me this?



Because it's the only obstacle.



Obstacle to what? I don't love you!

I don't wantto be yourwife!



You are ourclosest mutualfriend, Jude.



We thoughtyou oughtto be the firstto know.



Richard asked me to marry him, and I said yes.



That's wonderful. Congratulations.

I'm very happy for you.



So are we.



- When did you decide?

- I've been asking Sue for months now.



This time itwas her idea.



- I know it's the right decision.

- Jude helped me make up my mind.



I know. I hope my cousin willmake you

very happy, Mr Phillotson.



Jude, I have something to ask you.



Willyou give me away?

I have no otherfamily here.



Ofcourse I'llgive you away.



With allmy heart.



Are you ready with that yet? Hurry up, then.



You are "father", you know.



That's what they call

the man who gives* you away.



Was it like this when you were married?



- Can I get you a drink, sir?

- Thanks, Arabella. I'llhave a pint and a whisky.



- Aren't you supposed to be a Christminsterdon?

- Aren't you supposed to be in Australia?



Change, Arabella.



He's on the house.



- Who's that, Bella?

- That'sjust my husband.



Can I have a pint now, please?






You know how I said I was pregnant

when we got married?









I met someone in Sydney



I didn't tell him about us.



Itwasn't as nice as ourwedding.



She'llfind me lying here as stillas Lazarus.



And then I'llsuddenly open my eyes.



Sue Bridehead, you little fool.



I'llsay it straight out.



You'llregretthis marriage as much as

that ox of a cousin ofyours regretted his



Are you crying for me...

orforyour precious Sue?



You ninny.



"Lord, have mercy upon us.



"Lord, have mercy upon us.



"Almighty God, with whom do live the spirits

ofthem that depart, enterthe Lord,



"with whom the souls of the faithful after

they are delivered from the burden of the flesh



"are in joy and felicity. We give thee

a hearty thanks, for it has pleased thee



"to deliverthis, oursister,

out ofthe miseries ofthis sinfulworld.



"Beseechingly, that it may please thee

of thy gracious goodness.



"Shortly to accomplish the number of thine elect

and to hasten thy kingdom,



"that we, with allthose that are departed

in the true faith, thy holy name,



"may have our perfect consummation and bliss,

both in body and soul



"in thy eternal and everlasting glory,

though Jesus Christ, our Lord."



- How long are you staying?

- Just tonight. I have to go back tomorrow.



- I wish I'd seen her before she died.

- Sha was looking forward to seeing you, too.



- What did she say?

- Thatwe both made had husbands and wives.



It shouldn't be allowed to set those traps.



- Did itwake you?

- I was already awake.



- Why?

- I was thinking.



About what?



I don't know.



"Dearest Jude, I should never

have written this letter,



"and I beg you notto reply.



"Richard and I are husband and wife



"Nothing can change that...



"not your frustration,



"normy regret.



"Please try to forget me. "



- Jude?

- Now do you know?



You've got man's hands.



- Did you get my letter?

- Yes, but I neverppened it.



Don't worry,

I haven't moved to Shaston this time.



- You say it like you've given up with me.

- Do you blame me?



I'm here, aren't I?



Promise me you'llneverstop trying Jude.



- That must sound terrible.

- Yes, it does.



Willyou promise me that?



I can't help myself.






- Sue didn't tellme you were coming.

- I didn't know.



That's a wonderful surprise for both of us.

How long are you staying ?



My train leaves in an hour.



Sue's hardly had a chance to see you.



Maybe you can persuade Jude to stay.



- Now is the school at Marygreen?

- Tha same.



Still the one classroom?



Same desks.



- Eveything allright Jude?

- Yes.



- Goodnight then.

- Goodnight






- What are you doing?

- What's wrong with me, Jude?



Not a thing.



"When I do countthe clock that tells the time



"and see the brave day's sun

and hideous night When I behold...



"...and the summer's green

all girded up in sheaves,



"borne on the bier

with white and bristly heard."



I have a wife I love, who not only

doesn't love me, but I disgust her.



And this morning



she asked me if she could leave

to live with you.



- I won't oppose it ifthat's what you want.

- Well, it is



I always noticed something extraordinary

between the two of you.



I kepttelling myself itwas because you were

cousins, but it's more than that.



Sometimes I think you are

one person split in two.



You know allalong

she'd made a mistake marrying me.



- Yes.

- Butyou did nothing to stop us.






Nordid I.



- I'll check to see if you've forgotten anything.

- I don't thing I have, thank you.



- What time is the train, Jude?

- Leaves in five minutes.



Goodbye, Richard.









Jude! Jude!



I broughtyourdinner.



Domestiv laws should take

into account different temperaments.



I may wantto live with a man,

but only as a friend.



- That may not be fair on the man.

- Because there are no precedents.



- His pride is hurt.

- But you want to marry someone you love.



Why do people have to bu told to love each

other by someone else? That's all marriage is.



- A government stamp. A licence to love.

- Ifwe could would you wantto marry?



I'd run a mile ifyou had a piece of paper

that forced me to love you.



Oh, please!



- Drink up.

- Oh, another go. Another go.



Drink up, drink up, drink up.






You love it, you liar.



- What?

- What's wrong?



Don't touch me like that.



- It'sjust affections.

- Does it pullyou to something else?



Something else?What something else?



I think neither of us knowthe meaning of it.



I'm sorry. It's just that I want everything

to be perfect between us.



I'm not ready, Jude.



- Do you understand?

- I'lltry.



What are you writing?



Whatever his wife wants.



- Tea.

- Thanks.



"Here lies my husband Peter Porter, age   .



"He tormented me, he cheated on me

and he spent all our food money on beer."



- He's dead, Sue.

- He can't hear me.



Tell him I'll have his headstone ready

in an hour.






Sorry to come here, Jude. I didn't wantto.



- I'm in trouble. I need to talk to you.

- What's wrong?



I don't want to cause any trouble for you.

Can we talk somewhere else ?



- All right

- I'm staying at the King's Head.



- Itwas Arabella. Sha wants to talk with me.

- Can't she talk outside?



- Sha wants me to go to a hotel

- That's convenient



- Sue, I have to help her.

- Why? She's notyourwife.



She's going to give you what you want.



Can't you see what she's doing?

Sha wants you back.



But do you want me?






Close youreyes.



- You don't have to do this

- I wantto.



Butyou have to help me. I don't know

what I'm doing. I only pretend.



- Do I talk too much?

- No.

- No.



- I'm intellectualising.

- You're not.



Kiss me before I starttalking again.



You look pleased with yourself.



I'm cooking you bacon

and sausage and eggs.



- Why?

- Because you think you deserve it.



There's a letterforyou on the table.



- Aren't you going to open it?

- I'llread it later.



Jude, I knowwho it's from.



"Dearest Jude,

and norcan I.



"I named him afteryou. "

This is yourfather. My name is Sue.

It's nice to meetyou.



- Nowwas yourjourney?

- Fine, thank you.

What Arabella says is true.



He's yours. I can see you in him.



Butthe other half is her.



- You'llprotect me, won'tyou?

- If I can.



Can you believe youreyes?

Is the world really as it seems?



I can see you smiling convinced that nothing

can surprise you any more. You've seen it all.



Well, tonight I'llsurprise you.



I'll show you wonders.



I'llshowyou a world you've only glimpsed

in yourdarkest dreams.



Out ofthin air, the terrors come!



Not much longer now.



You allright?

Neverthoughtwe'd find you in the crowd.



Things turned out differently.



- No regrets, I hope?

- Some.



Difficult qquestion for any man to answer.



To follow his dreams no matterwhat, or

give in slowly and let life lead him where it will.



And which are you?



I don't know.



When I first came here to Christminster,

I had a neat stock offixed opinions.



Tha further I get,

the less sure I am of anything.



Hear, hear.



"Who knoweth what is good for man in this life ?



"And who can tella man

what shallbe after him underthe sun?"



- We're looking for somewhere to stay.

- We don't take children.

Juey, Lizzy, come up.



I'lllook forwork in the morning.

- I couldn't lie.



It's nothing to be ashamed of.

I won't hide it from anyone.



It's open.



I'm sorry, my husband is a bit unhappy

aboutthe little ones staying.



- We can't leave now, not in this rain.

- I know, I said that to him.

- Why do you give in?

- What difference does it make?



Sshhh, nearly done.



I love this place.



Even though I know

it looks down on people like me.



Tha self-taught the too-determined.



It takes two ot three generations to do

what I tried to do in one.



You're still Joseph, the dreamerof dreams.



And the tragic Don Quixote.



Sometimes you're a St Stephen...



..who sees Heaven open up,

even as they're stoning him.



I cannot sleep



- Come and sleep with us.

- Is it because of me we have to leave?



No, Juey...because there's too many of us.



There isn't enough room. Go to bed now.



Go to bed. Go to bed!



I'llgo and talk to him.



- What are you doing?

- Watching them sleep



They love you very much, Juey.



You're theirolder brother.



Ifthey see you upset, they get upset, too.



You have to be strong forthem.



Ifthere's too many children in the world,

why do people have more?



I don't know.



Because they love each other,



or because they don't think.



Itjust happens that way.



Mum said there were too many of us.



Sha didn't mean you.



There aren't enough ofyou.



Are you ready for bed?



Come on.



Good night son.



I'd like to buy myselfa dress with flowers,

flounces and ribbons. And I need a hat.



- Ofcourse you do.

- With exoticflowers growing out of it.



Oh, Jude. We could buy... We could buy clothes.



We could buy anything we wanted, really.



- Juey in school

- We could.



- Can I tell him?

- Yes, you tell him.



I'lltell him. I'lltell him!



Sshh, they must be asleep.



What is it?



"For we are made as a spectacle unto

the world, and unto angels and to men.



"Even to this present hour we both hunger

and thirst, and are naked and are buffeted,



"and have no certain dwelling place.



"Being reviled, we bless.

Being persected, we suffer it.



"Being defamed, we entreat.



"We are made as the filth ofthe world, and

are the offsouring of allthings unto this day.



"I write notthese things to shame you,

but, as my beloved sons, to warn you."



Shallwe go?



- Sue?

- I wantto be with my children.



I'llwait foryou by the gates.



I should have kept him myself.



None ofthis would have over happened.



If I had come back to you...






- If...

- Arabella, please.



I thought about it.



- Did you over?

- No.



Itwasn't yourfault, Jude.



- Why won't you look at me?

- Because it's wrong.



We have to be punished.



Haven't we been punished enough?



Our love is wrong.



That's why the children died.



We defied him, and now he's punishing us.



- Who?

- God.



God has nothing to do with it.

You of allpeople knowthat.



- I was wrong.

- And nowyou can see clearly, in this state?



- I'm trying to explain things

- There's nothing to explain.



- It was an accident.

- It was judgement.



On what?



Why do you talk like this?



We've done nothing wrong.



"We are łade a spectacle unto the world,

and unto angels and to men."






- Sue, where are you going?

- Yourchild killed mine.



- Yourchild killed my babies.

- Sue, please.



Now can I look atyou? Now can I live with you?



Do you believe in God?You think so, yes.



Now many times have you missed

a church service in your life?Why?



What are you reading at the moment?



- What do you wantwith me?

- Come home.



- You don't know my hadness.

- Yes, I do.



You make me hate Christianity and God

and whatever has reduced you to this state.



- It's rightthat I suffer.

- It's wrong.



That a woman like you

should give up her mind, degrade herself...



Don't talk to me like that!



- I'm sorry.

- Doesn't matter.



- Listen to me.

- Come home.



No, I can't.



- It's allright Jude. I knowwhat to do.
