INT. DERELICT HOUSE – DAY <<COLOUR SEQUENCE>>

1

A POLAROID PHOTOGRAPH, clasped between finger and thumb: a
crude, crime scene flash picture of a MAN’S BODY lying on a
decaying wooden floor, a BLOODY MESS where his head should
be.
The image in the photo starts to FADE as we SUPER TITLES. The
hand holding the photo suddenly FANS it in a rapid FLAPPING
motion, then holds it still. The image fades more, and again
the picture is FANNED.
As TITLES END the image fades to nothing. The hand holding
the photo FLAPS it again, then places it at the front of a
POLAROID CAMERA.
The camera SUCKS the blank picture up, then the FLASH BURSTS.
The Polaroid camera is lowered, revealing the sweaty, heavybreathing face of LEONARD (mid-30’s). There are droplets of
blood across his face. Leonard stares, satisfied, at
something on the ground in front of him. There is WET BLOOD
on his BLUE SHIRT and BEIGE SUIT. His hand opens and catches
a HANDGUN which leaps up into his grasp.
Still staring, he crouches down and pulls a BODY off the
floor by the wet hair of its BLOODY HEAD. He slowly inserts
the barrel of the gun into the bloody mess where the mouth
should be.
Leonard FLINCHES. A DEAFENING ROAR as wet red leaps off his
face and suit and head, with a SPASM, reassembles itself
into the face of TEDDY (40’s, moustache) and weCUT TO:

turns his head.
LEONARD (V.O.)
So where are you?
Leonard lifts his head. He is lying on a queen-sized bed.

You’re in some motel room.

EXT. DERELICT BUILDING - DAY <<COLOUR SEQUENCE>>

A late model Jaguar bumps across some railroad tracks and
approaches a large, clearly abandoned DERELICT BUILDING.
Leonard is driving. He wears a BEIGE SUIT and BLUE SHIRT (no
blood). Next to him is TEDDY. Leonard stops the car next to a
PICKUP TRUCK sitting Outside the derelict building. Leonard
kills the engine, staring at the pickup.
LEONARD
Looks like somebody’s home.
Teddy looks from Leonard to the pickup and back.
TEDDY
That thing’s been here for years.
Leonard gets out of the Jaguar and moves to the pickup. He
inspects it with a methodical, practiced eye. Teddy follows.
LEONARD
I think you’re wrong. These tracks aren’t
more than a few days old.

Leonard opens the door of the pickup and searches the
interior. On the dirty vinyl of the passenger seat he finds
six BULLETS. Leonard picks two of them up and studies them.
He drops them onto the dashboard then SHUTS the door.

LEONARD (cont’d)
Let’s take a look inside.
Leonard walks towards the house, patting his jacket pockets.
Teddy leans on the pickup, uneasy, watching Leonard.

INT. DERELICT BUILDING — DAY <<COLOUR SEQUENCE>>

Leonard stands in the dimly-lit, decaying former hallway. He
pulls a stack of POLAROID PHOTOGRAPHS out of his pocket and
leafs through them as Teddy starts walking towards him.
Leonard finds a photo showing Teddy with a shit-eating grin
standing in front of the pickup truck. On the broad white
strip beneath the photo is handwritten:
“TEDDY GAMMELL TEL. 555 0134”
Leonard flips the photo over. On the white strip on the back,
in the same small handwriting.

LEONARD (V.0.)
I’ve finally found him. How long have I
been looking?

Leonard stuffs the Polaroids back into his pocket, reaches
around to the back of his waistband and draws a HANDGUN,
keeping it out of Teddy’s line of sight. Teddy enters, wary.
TEDDY
Find anything? Didn’t think so, let’s go,
yeah?
Leonard neither replies nor turns around. Teddy, worried,
affects a casual air, shrugging dismissively,
TEDDY (cont’d)
Fuck this.
Teddy turns and heads for the door. Leonard LEAPS on him,
pistol-whipping him furiously as he shouts:
LEONARD
YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU DID! YOU BEG
FORGIVENESS, THEN YOU PAY!
Teddy is down. Leonard DRAGS him back, deeper into the dark
house. Leonard is in a frenzy. He dumps Teddy at the end of
the hall and stands over him. Teddy SPITS BLOOD.
TEDDY
You don’t have a clue, you freak.
Leonard crouches down and grabs Teddy by the lapels.
LEONARD
Beg my forgiveness! Beg my wife’s
forgiveness before I blow your brains
out!
TEDDY
Leonard, you don’t have a clue what’s
going on. You don’t even know my name.
LEONARD
(triumphant smile)
Teddy!

TEDDY

That’s who you were, you don’t know who
you are.
LEONARD
Shut your mouth!
TEDDY
Lemme take you down in the basement and
show you what you’ve become.
Teddy gestures towards the basement door, in pain, but
enjoying Leonard’s growing anxiety.
TEDDY (cont’d)
(intimate)
C’mon, Lenny – we’ll take a look down
there together. Then you’ll know. You’ll
know what you really are.
Leonard glances fearfully at the door, then looks at Teddy.
He THRUSTS the barrel of his gun into Teddy’s mouth and WE
ARE AT THE SHOT FROM THE END OF THE OPENING SEQUENCE. Teddy
panics, shaking his head, trying to talk around the metal,
but GAGS just as Leonard pulls the trigger. A SHOT rings out

Leonard lies on the queen-sized bed. He lifts his head.
LEONARD (V.O.)
So you’re in some motel room...
He gets up, surveys the room as if for the first time. He
wears BOXERS and a PLAID WORK SHIRT.
LEONARD (cont’d)
... you don’t know how long you’ve been
there, or how you got there...
There is a room key on the dresser. The plastic tag
identifies it as the key to ROOM 21. Leonard opens drawers in
the room.

He opens the drawer to find a Gideon Bible.

E.C.U. of fingers rifling bills in a wallet. Leonard counts
out some money and hands it to the fat, sweaty middle—aged
man behind the counter. (BURT). Burt takes the money,
spotting something over Leonard’s shoulder.
BURT
That guy’s here already.
Burt TAPS the POLAROID PHOTOGRAPH of Teddy which is sitting
on the counter. Leonard picks up the photo and turns to see
Teddy APPROACHING the glass door of the office. Leonard
watches carefully as Teddy shambles up to the office door. A
BELL CHIIIES as Teddy enters and breaks into his shit-eating
grin. Leonard slips the photo into his pocket.
TEDDY
Lenny!
Leonard nods in apparent recognition, wary.
LEONARD
It’s Leonard... like I told you before.
Teddy pretends to think hard.
TEDDY
Did you? I musta forgot. I’m Teddy.
LEONARD
(smiles)
I guess I’ve told you about my condition.
Teddy grins and holds the door open for Leonard.
TEDDY

My car.
Teddy glances back in surprise.
TEDDY
This is your car.
LEONARD

You’re in a playful mood.
Leonard holds up a Polaroid of a late model JAGUAR.
LEONARD (cont’d)
Shouldn’t make fun of somebody’s
handicap.

Teddy smiles and heads for the BRAND-NEW JAGUAR parked
several cars further down.
TEDDY
Just trying to have a little fun.

Leonard drives, Teddy admires the new car’ s interior,
reaching down around the seats, exploring the car with his

TEDDY
Roll your window up, will ya?
Leonard hits his window button. A few fragments of safety
glass rise out of the door, remnants of a broken window.
LEONARD
It’s broken.
Teddy looks, curious.
TEDDY
I can get that fixed for you.
Leonard shrugs.
TEDDY (cont’d)
So where are we going, Sherlock?

Leonard, wearing BOXERS and PLAID WORK SHIRT, takes the
GIDEON BIBLE out off the open bedside table drawer.
LEONARD (V.0.)
Nothing except the Gideon Bible.
He leafs through a couple off pages, then DROPS the Bible back
into the drawer and shuts it. He notices a MESSAGE written on
the back off his hand:
“REMEMBER SAMMY JANKIS”
LEONARD (cont’d)
Sammy Jankis had the same problem. He
tried writing himself notes. Lots of
notes. But he’d get confused.

Leonard licks his thumb, and rubs at the writing. To
Leonard’s surprise, IT DOES NOT EVEN SMUDGE.
He notices his bare legs. There is a NOTE taped to his RIGHT
THIGH with a handwritten message:

You don’t know?

I think I may have. I’m not good on the
phone.
BURT

You said you like to look people in the
eye when you talk to them. Don’t you
remember?
LEONARD
That’s the thing. I have this condition.
BURT
Condition?
LEONARD
I have no memory.
BURT
Amnesia?
LEONARD
No. It’s different. I have no short-term
memory. I know who I am and all about
myself, but since my injury I can’t make
any new memories. Everything fades. If we
talk for too long, I’ll forget how we
started. I don’t know if we’ve ever met
before, and the next time I see you I
won’t remember this conversation. So if I
seem strange or rude, that’s probably...

He notices that Burt is staring at him as if he were an
exotic insect.
LEONARD (cont’d)
I’ve told you this before, haven’t I?
BURT
(nods)
I don’t mean to mess with you. It’s just
so weird. You don’t remember me at all,
and we talked a bunch of times.
Leonard shrugs.

That must suck. All... backwards.

Leonard raises his eyebrows in enquiry.

Well, like.. you gotta pretty good idea
of what you’re gonna do next, but no idea
what you just did.

I’m the exact opposite.

How long have I been here?
BURT
Couple days.
LEONARD
So you’re holding my calls?
BURT
As requested.
Leonard reaches into his pocket and pulls out his Polaroids
LEONARD
Okay, but this guy’s an exception.
Leonard places the Polaroid of Teddy on the counter in front
of Burt. Burt looks at it.

Know this guy?
