United 93

written by Jeff Goode


JEFF. I went to see that new movie–

MIKE. Too soon.

JEFF. The one about United flight 93–

MIKE. Too soon!

JEFF. It’s about what happens on the plane that was hijacked on September 11th

MIKE. Too soon! It’s too soon! Do you understand me? It’s still too soon.


JEFF. It’s been almost 5 years since 9-11. You don’t think people are ready to see a film that deals realistically with what happened on that day?

MIKE. I think people are perfectly capable of making up their own minds whether they’re ready to see a film about what happened on September 11th. But it’s still too soon for people to have to listen to your fucked up opinions about a film about what happened on September 11th. It’s too soon.

(Long beat. Jeff looks hurt. Long pause. Jeff gets over it.)

JEFF. The terrorists kicked ass–

MIKE. God damn it!!
