The Tesseract Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the The Tesseract script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Jonathan Rhys-Meyers movie.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of The Tesseract. 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.

The Tesseract Script





The tesseract is

a hypercube unraveled.



When a square unravels

to a line...



two dimensions

become one...



When a cube unravels

to a cross...



three dimensions

become two.



When a hypercube unravels

to the tesseract...



four dimensions become three.

You can take a look yourself.

None of your business.

You know any buyers?



Hold on, okay?



Hey, look...

the dead pig's smiling.

You saw her, didn'tyou?

And then you said it was a dream.



No, it was a dream. And the next

day I see her in room    .



-You don't have to lie to me.

somewhere else.



lwant to go to school.



At night lwon't sleep because

every night the Boss...



Like your dream.



And for sure I don't want

to dream no more.



You and me are alike.



You knowthat? Seriously.



You can't tell the difference between

your dreams and your destiny.



And me...



my past and my fate

are like a ring road.



A jeweled carriageway with

no destination, you know?



You can't tell the difference between

an adult and a child anymore.



And I can't say what's a gift

and what's a curse.



You see? The same.



Neither of us see colors.

Just shades of gray.



We're the same.







We're not the same, lady.



Our lives collide, don't they?

lt's chaotic, but there's a plan.



Cause and effect.



A butterfly flaps its wings in Asia

and a boy dies in London.



Are you okay, lady?



What I'm trying to say is...



that's how it is

for you and me.



We see it unraveled

but not the thing itself.



You know something?



My son would have been

aboutyour age.



No arguments, just take it.



We'll call it pay for

the interviews.



You said you wanted to

get away, so get away.



I'm going to Baan Kaw Dang

tomorrow, but...



you should go somewhere else.

Anywhere else.



Find yourself a school.

Start again.



What's that?



lt's a gift.

I buy it for you.






Thank you.



What is it?



lt's some famous Thai food.

lt's called Durian pudding.



Durian pudding?



I'm good boy, right?



Yes. Yes, you are a good boy.



I'm leaving very early.

Make yourself at home.



Go downstairs, have some

breakfast, whatever you want.



Durian pudding.



Where the fuck is it? I'm going

to crack your fucking skull!



Where the fuck is it?









Me? Why steal from you?

You think I'm a thief?



What's going on, Sean? Why did

they beatyou up like this?



ltold you.

I'm a businessman.



How did you end up here?



How does anyone end up here?

You thinkthis is what lwanted?



You think I planned this?



lt has to be that kid.



What kid?



-The kid that works at the hotel.




You know him?



Sure. I know him.

All the girls know.



You know him? Shit!



I have to find that kid.

You have to help me find him.






Do it again.



-You're going to drop it!

-Here! lt's here.



-Fast hand you've got.

-Try it! Stop your blah-blah-blah!



Have you seen Wit

these last few days?



Who's he?



My friend. He believes Wit stole

something that belonged to him.



Something very important.

We need to find him.



-No, I haven't seen him.

-Haven't seen him.



-She said she hasn't seen him.

-Ask her again.



Even if I have,

why should ltell you?



He said, if he know,

he don't want to tell you.



You're going to tell me

something now, yeah?



You! You little shit!



You stole my friend's belonging.

Time to hand it back.



What are you talking about?

I have no idea.



You have no idea how important

it is. Hand it back!



Come on, how can I steal it?

I didn't steal anything. Honestly!



Liar! Hand it back now!



Mr Sean, you knowme. lwouldn't

steal from you. I'm a good boy.



What's this, you little pimp?

Who did you sell it to?



Sean! What are you doing?

We're in the street!



-Don't fuck me about!

-Where's my drugs?



-l don't know.

-Yes you do.



-lwill shootyou in your face.

-l don't know!



-This is not like you!

-You don't even knowme!



-Tell me! Tell me!

-l swear I don't know!



Where? Where?



Baan Kaw Dang.



Right, let's go.






Just wait a minute here.

She'll be down soon.



Where have you been?



I haven't seen you for days.

I got my UK visa.



-Any idea when we can leave?

-Our trip is delayed.



-What? How come?

-Some shit happened.



An English guy was supposed

to carry our stuff abroad.



But now he's vanished and

l've got to find him.



-An English guy?

-What? You know something?



-The one from the hotel?

-You know him? Where's he?



-l only met him once.

-Just tell me where he is!



-Where is he?

-Baan Kaw Dang.



Excuse me.

Do you know where Wit is?



-Hand it over.




Don't fuck about!



Just give me the gear

and nobody gets hurt!



-The gear? What's going on, Wit?

-Tell her!



The durian pudding I gave you.

Just give it to him!



Open it.



We all stay alive.

We all stay calm.



Kid, bring me the gear.



You know something? My son would

have been aboutyour age.



lwish I could be more encouraging,

but there is no hope.



So, I heard you knowmy

girlfriend, Fon.



A good girl, isn't she?



Lady! Lady!



Roy! No! Don't!






Howmany times I've told you not to

do it. And you still do it.



l've warned you over and over

again. You never listen to me.



You never listen to me.



Nobody can control dream...



like nobody can control life.



lf I open the door I don't

know what's behind.



lf I open the box,

I don't know what's inside.



No choice, lady.

Just open and look.



That's it.
