The Ice Cream Truck (2017) Movie Script

- Have a good day now.
- Oh my god I'm so sorry.
- No it's okay.
I needed to cool off, I
guess I didn't know it.
- Will say you're
sorry to the nice lady.
Will, you sprayed her with
the hose say you're sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- It's okay, really.
- I'm Jessica.
- Hi, I'm Mary.
- When did you move in?
- We bought the
house a month ago
but we haven't fully moved in.
I've been here
for a couple days.
Just barely in furniture
just the boxes I brought
on my drive here.
My husband is in
Seattle with the kids
for another week.
They're just
finishing up school.
- Oh they must finish
late out there.
- Yeah it's a charter school.
- How old are your kids?
- 13 and five.
My, my oldest is from
my first marriage,
I was so young.
- Oh.
- I'm from here
originally, I grew up here.
Lot of memories.
- I don't mean to pry
but why the move back?
- My husband works
for a tech company
and they opened up
an office downtown.
- Do you still have family here?
- No.
I thought my kids might like
growing up in the suburbs,
you know, small town life.
- I sure do.
Do you work Mary or
just inside the home.
- I am a freelance writer.
Mostly editorial blog stuff.
- Oh like the Huffington post.
- Yeah kinda.
- Will.
- Okay I should get going.
I've got furniture
being delivered today,
I should get changed.
- Sorry again about that.
I hope you and your husband
can come over for
dinner sometime.
- Yeah.
Yeah that sounds nice.
- Welcome to the
neighborhood Mary.
- Hi, how's everything?
- Hey.
- Good.
- You guys on your
way to school?
- Yup, today already.
- How are you?
- I'm good.
- I miss you guys though.
- Awh, we miss you too.
- Did I tell you that
I got some chairs?
- No, what kind of chairs?
- The biggest ones I
could fit in my car.
- Great.
- I met one of our
neighbors this morning.
- Oh really?
What are they like?
- I can tell she's gonna
be real fuckin' nosy.
- Making friends already.
What's her name?
- Jessica.
- Very nice.
- Her son sprayed
me with a hose.
- On purpose?
- No not on purpose
he's like four.
- Oh well yeah.
- Did you know that we
had an ice cream truck?
- Oh great, that's
what they need, more sugar.
Well, it'll help with
the transition I guess.
- No it was super weird.
Felt like I was in a
time warp or something.
Dunno, something about
him was so creepy.
- Ew, how was the ice cream?
- No I didn't get anything.
- Well look we've gotta try it
when we get there.
- Eugh, I can't wait for
you guys to get here.
- Us too.
- I don't think I've
been alone since,
god since Jakey was born.
What did I do before kids?
- I know right?
- I should go out and
have some wild nights.
You know, reclaim my
youth or whatever.
- Yeah why don't you go party
with some soccer moms?
- How are my babies?
Can you put them on speaker?
- Sure, hey do you guys
wanna say hi to your mom?
- Hi guys.
I can't wait to see you.
Jacob are you so excited to
be almost done with school?
- Yeah.
- I can't wait to see you.
- Okay.
- Come on Jakey it'll be,
you'll love it out here.
- Whatever.
- Shelby, how are you?
- Hi mommy.
- How's my sweet girl?
- Good, I miss you.
- I miss you too baby.
- Hey Shelby.
- Hey I'm
almost at Jacob's school
so I gotta let you go
but, how's the writing?
How's it coming?
- It's okay.
I keep having these
great starts and then
they fizzle out.
I think I'm just
trying to force it.
- Hey it'll come.
- I know, thank you.
- Okay I'm here.
Okay, we'll call you later okay?
- Love you guys!
- Yeah I love you too!
- Love you too.
- Bye.
- Bye.
- Hi, you must
have my furniture.
- Yeah.
- Okay, great.
I'm ready for you.
Is it just you or do...
- It's just me.
- Um okay.
Do you need me to sign anything?
Do you work or just
inside the home?
Excuse me.

you over to a party

and obnoxious teenagers.

It's nice to have some
new blood on the block.
These bitches are a handful.
- Katie!
- Hi I'm Mary.
- Oh I already told
them all about you.
You shouldn't be cooped
up here all by yourself,

I mean when was the last time
you didn't have
your kids around?
- 12 years.
- Oh honey.
You've been a mom since you
were a baby, you poor thing.
- Yeah I had my
son really young,
but I wouldn't change it
for anything you know?
- Of course you wouldn't.
Don't pay any
attention to Katie,
she has foot and mouth disease.
- Oh please.
- Come on we wanna
show our new neighbor
a little hospitality.
- I don't know.
- You don't even have furniture.

Hey wait!
- Good evening young lady.
What'll it be?
- Um, what do you have?
- Oh we've got it all.
- Do you have
nestle French bars?
- I'm afraid not.
I'm a purest.
Just regular old ice cream.
Cups, cones and shakes.
No store bought
confections here.
- Wow really?
- This is the real deal.
What flavor?
- Uh I don't know.
I usually just get the bars,
I'm not really an
ice cream person.
- Well, today's you're
lucky day then isn't it?
Time to try something new.
- Can I take a look?
- Sure.
Come on up.
- Rum raisin's my favorite.
- Ew what is that?
- It's probably more of
an old fashioned flavor.
But then again I am
an old fashioned guy.
- Oh what's this one?
- That's rainbow sherbet.
- Yum.
- There are a lot of choices.
- Oh this one looks good.
- Does it?
- What are you doing?
- Just giving you the
personal experience.
- Yeah, no thanks I
think I'll just go.
- But you haven't
picked a flavor yet?
- Let me out.
- What I should
just walk you out?
- Let me out!
- Yay!
Divine, got them all.
- Thanks mom.
- Um guys come on, come on.
It's chocolate.
- You need to have this right?
- Yeah yeah.
- On your own?
- Havin' fun?
- Yeah.
- This isn't quite
your scene is it?
- Sure it is.
Just takin' it all in.
- You miss your husband?
- Yeah.
- Well if you ever had
the desire to cheat
now would be the time to do it.
I have a really good vibrator.
- Well if you'll
excuse me I have to go
find my kids.
- Hey mom.
How's it going?
- Oh it is going.
- Suburbs.
Weird huh?
- Yeah, I forgot how much.
- It's like a big bubble.
- A bubble that means
well, but still a bubble.
- I can't wait to
get outta here.
- Don't be in too
much of a rush.
Crazy resides everywhere.
- Yeah right.
- Where are you going to school?
- State.
- Another bubble,
a bigger bubble.
- Bigger is always better right?
- Not always but
you'll figure that out.
- Yeah?
- Not at first but you will.
- Hey have you seen Tracy?
- No.
Not since the best
part of my night.
- Come on over here.

- Well, to be continued.
Come on uncle west let's
get you a nice tall water.
- So,

So where you been
all my life Mary?
- Living in Seattle
with my husband.
- Well now that is
a shame, cause uh.
- 'Scuse me.
- Whatever.
- Hey, where you goin'?
- I've had enough for one night.
- Oh.
- Maybe we can talk about the
meaning of life another time.
- Well if you want
anymore, you know,
just tell me mom you
want yard work done.
She'll let me know.
- You're a grass worker.
- Yeah I guess, I guess I am.
See you later Mary.
- I could've sworn I
left that light on.
- Good morning Mary.
You're a runner?
- More or less.
- Oh how do you find the time?
- Well my family's
across the country
so you can find time
for lots of things.
- Ah, so it would seem.
- Oh you know I
found this hairpin
on the ground over there.
I think it's um, is it Tracy's?
Max's girlfriend?
- Why do you think it's Tracy's?
- I remember her wearing it
the other night at the party.
I dunno I just
remember those things.
Okay, uh yeah well hey.
If you see her.
Ask he if she lost a hairpin?
- Okay sure.
How are things
going in the house?
- Oh,
good, good.
You know, I drove down
with all these boxes
to set everything up for the
kids before they got here but.
- You drove, alone?
- Yeah.
- Weren't you afraid?
- No.
I uh, I was looking for
writing inspiration
and I was listening to
these great podcasts.
- Well I hope you were
carrying a gun at least.
- No, I don't own a gun.
- Well you need to go get one.
There's a lot of crazies
out there you know?
- Yes, yes there are.
Uh anyway, I can't wait
for the cable company
to come and hook everything up
because I'm losing
my mind in there.
- Yeah.
- And the yard's a total mess.
- Well we know.
- Wait, Max does
yard work right?
- Yeah he does.
- No really I need somebody
to clean up the yard.
So how would I book him?
- I'll just have him
and his friends come by.
- Oh great, thank you.
I'm just so fuckin'
tired of doin' yard work.
Sorry, uh sorry.
- 'Kay, well I gotta run,
gotta go get carpool started so.
- See you later.
What is it about the suburbs?
Hi Jessica.
How are you doing this morning?
- Oh just fine.
Your husband coming soon?
- Not soon enough.
Still two more days for
me to get into trouble.
- Hi Mary.
I heard you needed yard work.
- Yes, yes I do.
Oh no.
I actually do need yard work.
- Oh, sorry.
- No it's okay.
I'll take that too.
- This is Nick and Joe.
- Hey guys.
- So what did you need done?
- I don't know.
Just the front yard
cleaned up a bit.
Lets go take a look.
Yeah it's not too bad.
There's barely any lawn.
I can go check the backyard
and see if there are
any weeds to pull.
- That's easy enough.
- How much do you guys charge?
- 100 bucks.
- Hey we'll throw in a
little Greens for the deal.
- Alright cool, sounds perfect.
So um,
how's Tracy?
- I don't know.
I haven't heard from her.
She's probably just mad at me.
- Really?
- Well she won't text me
back, she bailed on my party.
- Does she have a
reason to be mad at you?
- Eugh, yeah probably.
- He told her he wants
to be single in college.
- I'm just bein' honest.
- Yep well there you go.
Uh let me think,
what else can I have you guys
do while you're here, um.
Do you guys clean pools?
Just kidding, alright
let me check the back.
- Not feelin' it today boys?
- It's too fuckin'
hot for this shit man.
- It's called summer.
- Just got a text from
brie, I'm outta here.
- What?
- Just take my cut of the money.
- Yeah but that's twice as
much work for both of us.
- Gotta get some
ass, later dudes.
- Oh thanks a lot.
- Nick, c'mon.
- Sorry.
- Where's he goin'?
- What do you call the
opposite of a gentlemen caller?
- Oh.
- Hello there young fellow.
- Are you kidding me?
- Am I kidding you about what?
- Uh, your shtick.
- You know, some things
in this life are sacred
the ice cream truck
being one of them.
Is it so wrong to make it more
special for the little kids?
- So what you're
always in character?
- I guess you could say that.
So, what'll it be my friend?
Come on up,
that's where all my coolers are.
What flavor?
Might I suggest
pralines and cream?
- Uh two chocolate cones please.
- Well doesn't that
sounds delicious.

- Nobody.
- You sure?
- Yeah, will you
answer the door?
- No way I've got a huge boner.
- Uh fine.
- Hello young lady.
Would you mind if I
used your bathroom?
- What?

- Okay.
Come in.
- Okay.

Can I get you something?
- What have you got?
- Beer, vodka.
Wait a second, I can't
give you any of that.
- Oh come on spare me, like you
didn't drink in high school?
- Of course I did.
Being around you guys,
it's like a constant reminder
of my high school days.
- I bet you were cute.
- Stop it, I am not
giving you alcohol.
- Suit yourself mom.
You know technically
I'm in college now.
- How about we just
smoke some pot.
And then I have to go.
- Go where?
- Go be an adult without
a teenager in my house.
- Where's the
rest of your furniture?
- Movers.
And I got some new stuff.
Change is good.
- You should sit on
the couch closer to me.
- I'm cool here thanks.
- It's all good.
Oh hey.
It's for you.
- Ah thanks, it's exciting.
- I love this song.
- The only music I hear
these days is Disney.
- Come on Mary, be
young, dance with me.
- Be young?
- I really didn't
mean it like that.
Come on you're cool and hotter
than most of the girls my age.
- You're bad.
- Am I?
Come on Mary.
- Oh okay, yep.
You are too young to know
how to dance like this.
- No I'm not,
I was raised on
dancing with the stars.
- Don't remind me.
Okay it's time for
you to go trouble.
- Trouble is relative.
- I'm not even gonna
respond to that.
- Mary Mary quite contrary.
- Goodbye my friend,
maybe in another lifetime.
- I don't have your number.
- Why do you need my number?
- Just in case.
- Just in case what?
- Look you could have mine too,
you know, if you need yard work.
- No.
- Hey.
I can call and text first,
or I can just show up.
- 206
- Well that is a shitty number.
Couldn't you have
got some repetition?
- Bye, bye Max.
- Hey I'll text you
so you have mine.
- Cool.
- Mommy!
- Hi baby.
- I can't wait to see you.
- Awh.
One more day.

something this fine evening?
- No thanks.
- You sure?
How 'bout a shake?
- Um,
- What flavor?
No, wait.
Lemme guess,
You look like a
vanilla kinda gal.
Although, tonight, you look
like you might want something
a little more decadent.
Am I wrong?
Vanilla's fine thank you.
- Okay, super.
How about you young man?
You wanna taste something sweet?

- Yeah.
- What was it?
- I don't know, relax.
Probably just a
squirrel or something.
Hey hey, hey.

- Why not?
- Because I'm old enough
to be your mother.
- Not really.
- And I'm married.
- You are so sexy.
- If I were 18.
But I'm not.
Life is complicated.
- Can I at least still see you
