A Tree For My Bed Edit

GRANT, LEX, and TIM make their way through Jurassic Park. Far in the distance, there's another ROAR.

LEX
Are you hearing this?

Alan Grant hears another ROAR

Alan Grant
Come on, Tim. Come on, hurry up.

Let's, uh, get up this tree.

TIM
Oh, no.

ALAN GRANT
Come on, Tim, it's okay. Try up here.

LEX, TIM, and GRANT climb. Grant is behind, watching the other two, giving them a push up when they need it.

TIM
I don't want to.

Okay. Oh, man.

I hate trees.

LEX
They don't bother me.

TIM
Oh, yeah, well, you weren't in the last one.

The three can hear the HOOTS of the animals. Some are almost musical.

Now, near the top of the tree, the three of them sit there on a flat place. It's an incredible view. They can see in all directions. It is clouded but still there's a lot of detail.

Most striking of all are sauropod heads, at the end of long necks, that tower over the park.

TIM
Hey, those are Brontosauruses. I mean, uh, Brachiosauruses.

ALAN GRANT
They're singing.

Alan moves over to a higher branch. He HOOTS himself, trying to imitate one of the calls. Immediately, two of the heads turn in their direction and HOOT back.

LEX
Shh, shh! Don't let the monsters come over here!

ALAN GRANT
They're not monsters, Lex. They're just animals. These are herbivores.

TIM
That means they only eat vegetables, but for you I think they'd make an exception.

GRANT
Tim...

LEX
Oh, I hate the other kind.

ALAN GRANT
The other kind just... (he gets off the branch and goes back to sit with the kids) do what they do.

The music of A Tree For My Bed starts to play.

Grant finds a solid web of branch and settles himself in it, leaning back against the trunk of the tree, with a little room on either side of him. Lex and Tim nestle up next to him. Grant is surprised, but accepts it.

Satisfied, they settle in for the night. But something in Alans pocket pinches him.

ALAN
Ooh! Aah! What's that?

He winces and digs it out. It's the velociraptor claw he unearthed so long ago in Montana. Yesterday, actually. He looks at it, thinking a million thoughts, staring at this thing that used to be so priceless.

LEX
What are you and Ellie gonna do now if you don't have to pick up dinosaur bones anymore?

ALAN GRANT
I don't know, I guess I guess we'll just have to evolve too.

TIM
What do you call a blind dinosaur?

GRANT
I don't know. What do you call a blind dinosaur?

TIM
Do-you-think-he-saurus.

Grant laughs.

TIM
What do you call a blind dinosaur's dog?

GRANT
You got me.

TIM
A Do-you-think-he-saurus Rex.

LEX
What if the dinosaur comes back while we're all asleep?

GRANT
I'll stay awake.

LEX
(skeptical)
All night?

GRANT
All night.

Both kids finally close their eyes.

Grant lets the claw fall to the ground.

Restaurant scene Edit

The toys and collectables in the Gallimimus Gift Shop are shown. The camera shifts towards the Cretaceous Cafe.

JOHN HAMMOND sits at the table, alone. There is a bucket of ice cream at his end of the table, and he's eating a dish of it, staring down. Ellie draws up to the table and Hammond looks up at her.

HAMMOND
They were all melting.

ELLIE
Malcolm's okay for now. I gave him a shot of morphine.

HAMMOND
They'll all be fine. Who better to get the children through Jurassic Park than a dinosaur expert?

Another pause. Hammond breaks it again.

HAMMOND
You know the first... (he swallows the ice) ...attraction I ever built when I came down from Scotland... was a Flea Circus, Petticoat Lane. Really quite wonderful. We had a wee trapeze and a... a merry-go... carousel... and a seesaw. They all moved, motorized of course. But people would say they could see the fleas.

Ellie just looks at him, not sure what his state is. He goes on.

HAMMOND
"I can see the fleas, mummy! Can't you see the fleas?" Clown fleas, high wire fleas, fleas on parade.

HAMMOND
But with this place, I wanted to show them something that wasn't an illusion. Something that was real. Something they could... see and touch. An aim not devoid of merit.

ELLIE
But you can't think through this one, John. You have to feel it.

HAMMOND
You're right, you are absolutely right. Hiring Nedry was a mistake, that's obvious. We're overdependent on automation, I can see that now. Now, the next time, everything's correctable.

ELLIE
John

HAMMOND
Creation is an act of sheer will. Next time, it'll be flawless.

ELLIE
It's still the Flea Circus. It's all an illusion.

HAMMOND
When we have control...

ELLIE
You never had control! That's the illusion! I was overwhelmed by the power of this place. So I made a mistake, too. I didn't have enough respect for that power, and it's out now. The only thing that matters now are the people we love. Alan, Lex, and Tim. John, they're out there, where people are dying.

ELLIE
So...

Ellie reaches out and takes a spoon out of one of the buckets of ice cream, and licks it. Finally:

ELLIE
(cont'd) It's good.

HAMMOND
Spared no expense.

My Friend Brachiosaur Scene Edit

It is close to dawn. GRANT, TIM, and LEX are asleep in the branches of the tree, both kids now curled up under Grant's arms. A brachiosaur's head pushes into the tree branches, right up beside them. Grant awakens, only a little bit asleep. He smiles. Lex awakens too.

Lex opens her mouth to scream, but nothing comes out. She flees to a higher brach. The head returns for a second bite. Tim awakes too.

LEX
Go away!

GRANT
(quietly) It's okay! It's okay! It's a brachiosaur!

Grant stands up and starts looking for something.

TIM
Veggiesaurus, Lex, Veggiesaurus!

But Lex isn't taking any chances and stays away from its mouth.

LEX
Veggie.

Tim tries to imitate the Brachiosaur hoot (like Grant did in a previous scene.

TIM
Come on. Come on, girl. Come on.

Grant moves forward with a brach with leafs.

GRANT
Come on, baby.

HONK! The brachiosaur makes a loud honking noise, startling Grant and the kids.

Alan tries to feed the brachiosaur. The animal gets the end of the branch and starts a tug-of-war with Grant.

GRANT
I'm not letting go.

Grant pulls the head close to him. - - they really begin to have a good time with the brachiosaur. Tim reaches out, petting the dinosaur's head while it chews.

The dinosaur keeps chewing, not objecting to the inspection.

TIM
It looks like it has a cold.

Grant
Yeah. Maybe.

LEX
Can I touch it?

GRANT
Sure. Just think of it as kind of a big cow.

TIM giggles.

LEX
I like cows.

The dinosaur head moves away from the group. Lex tentatively edges forward in the tree to the inspection.

LEX
Come on, girl. Come on up here, girl. Come on.

It SNEEZES. It's a vast explosion, and Lex is dripping wet from head to toe. She is frozen with horror.

TIM
God bless you.
