EXT. TOWN CENTRE. DAY
HEATHER walks up and down the street frantically then
approaches the door.
HEATHER bangs on the door
On the other side ADAM frowns in confusion and goes to
answer the door
Oh hello, are you ok?
No, I am not, who is that woman?
ADAM steps outside his house, frowning
Come on! Who is she? Why are you here?
I think you need to calm down
No I will not calm down! Answer me!
Ok, ok. Give me about an hour and I will
meet you at the Green Dragon down the
road. Then we can talk properly
Fine, don’t be late!
HEATHER walks away towards the bar and ADAM goes inside
INT. THE GREEN DRAGON (PUB). DAY
HEATHER is sat at a table drinking a vodka and coke,
quickly. ADAM walks past the window and into the pub and
sits down with HEATHER
Ok, could you just tell me your name
before we start?
You god damn know who I am!
Ok, calm down, why are you so angry?
I’ve caught you out! That’s why I’m so
bloody angry. I don’t know who you think
you are to patronize me like that!
I’m sorry but I don’t know who you are
Well I’m your wife!
Right ok, I think there is some confusion
here. We have never met, I’m sorry but I
really don’t know who you are
I don’t know why you are trying to play
games with me.
ADAM looks at HEATHER’S neck and sees her scar
There is an awkward silence at the table.
CLARE walks past the bar and sees her friend HEATHER sat at
the table with a man she doesn’t recognize.
CLARE walks into the bar
Hello Heather, are you ok?
No I’m not, I’ve caught him out
Sorry, you’ve caught who out?
HEATHER points at ADAM
Him! My husband but he is denying that he
knows me, thinking he is clever playing
games with me.
ADAM looks up at CLARE
But Heather, you don’t have a husband
Oh not you as well
HEATHER rolls her eyes, stands up and storms to the
CLARE takes HEATHER’s seat
I’m sorry I’m so confused
You don’t need to be sorry, see the thing
is last year Heather was in a car accident
and was in a coma for eight months. She
woke up believing she had fallen in love
and got married.
ADAM looks down and rubs the back of his neck
That’s awful, but I don’t understand how
I’ve got involved in this
She must’ve seen you and thought you were
the man she married
Ok, I’ll have to have a think about what
HEATHER walks back towards the table drags another chair
and sits down
You remembered me yet?
Lets swap numbers and come back to each
You think you are going to palm me of like
Come on Heather, I’ll take you to dinner
HEATHER and ADAM swap numbers
CLARE loops her arm through HEATHER’S and they leave the
EXT. (outside pub). NIGHT
HEATHER and CLARE leave the restaurant. HEATHER stumbles as
she leaves and CLARE supports her
Come on you can stay at mine, lets get you
HEATHER and CLARE get into a taxi.
INT. TAXI. NIGHT
HEATHER is slurring her words
I mean who does he think he his? I am his
wife! (short pause) I love you Clare
I know, I know, I love you too, come on we
are here lets get you out
HEATHER and CLARE get out of the taxi and into CLARE’S
CLARE tucks HEATHER into bed
Goodnight Heather, sleep well
Love you Clare
FADE TO BLACK
INT. HOSPITAL. DAY
HEATHER is laid in a hospital bed, eyes closed. CLARE sits
with HEATHER’S mother and father looking at HEATHER.
HEATHER’S eyes start to flutter and she wakes up
Heather, how are you feeling?
It’s so lovely to hear your voice
JOANNE, DAVID and CLARE tell HEATHER that she was in a car
accident and has been in a coma for eight months.
Am I married?
HEATHER’S parents and CLARE look at HEATHER frowning in
