Monster Monologues

Monster (Aileen)

LEE: God damn it, Selby. Keep your f -ing voice down! Now listen to me… They aren”t coming! I never wanted you in this s -, Sell. But I know what I”m doing alright? There”s no f -ing way for you to understand it all so you gotta trust me. Look, they don”t have one god damn thing. This s – here is long over already so they”re not even looking and they didn”t seem to give a s – in the first place… These guys were bad news! You see what I”m saying? Nobody cares!? You got these rapists and killers, with ten different people wanting “em dead so they shut the book. I”m doing “em a favor! Now, beyond that I”m still real careful… (realizing – angry) I didn”t exactly wanna wreck the f -ing car in public! (calming) But we did… and I figure if they were gonna call the cops… they woulda done it then, so nobody”s coming after you.More Monologues from “Monster”

Monster (Aileen Wuornos)

I always wanted to be in the movies. When I was little, I thought for sure, one day, I could be a big big star. Or maybe just beautiful. Beautiful and rich. Like the women on TV. I had a lot of dreams. And I guess you could call me a real romantic because I truly believed that one day, they’d come true. So I dreamed about it for hours. As the years went by, I learned to stop sharing this with people. They said I was dreaming, but back then, I believed it wholeheartedly. So whenever I was down, I would just escape into my mind, to my other life, where I was someone else. It made me happy to think that all these people just didn’t know yet who I was going to be. But one day, they’d all see. I heard that Marilyn Monroe was discovered in a soda shop and I thought for sure it could be like that. So I started going out real young and I was always secretly looking for who was going to discover me. Was it this guy? Or maybe this one. I never knew. But even if they couldn’t take me all the way, like Marilyn, they would somehow believe in me just enough. They would see me for what I could be and think I was beautiful. Like a diamond in the rough. They would take me away to my new life and my new world, where everything would be different. Yeah. I lived that way for a long long time. In my head, dreaming like that. It was nice. And one day, it just stopped.

Monster (Aileen)

AILEEN: God damn it calm down, Selby! You wanna know why, huh? (loud whisper) – Cause I f -ing killed someone. I killed someone. The night I stood you up. I got raped, beat to f – and was gonna get killed but I didn”t wanna lose you and all I could think about was how you”d never know I meant to be there and you”d think I stood you up for the rest of your life and I couldn”t stand to die knowing you coulda loved me… so I f -ing killed him. Shot him dead. Alright? Now you know me! So f -ing run like the wind… It had to be done.More Monologues from “Monster”

LEE: No, you don”t know my life! But I know yours. Man… (loving – emotional) I”ve done everything in this whole wide world, hoping you would never know. I wish so bad I could be like ya, and just not know. But I can”t, Sell. And as much as I hoped to keep it from ya, so you could go on thinking people are good and kind and s**t makes sense. Honey… there”s a whole lot more going on. And I”m sorry. I”m sorry for you. Cause now you got to know. If I hadn”t killed somebody I”d be dead! Would you”ve wanted that? They can”t have been bad? Read the paper! I”m not the only one out there killin”… but I”m the only one killin” them. They”re just killing us wholesale. So don”t feel bad, Selby! I haven”t hurt one person who didn”t flat out deserve it. I”ve had it up to here with you can”t! While the world decides what I will take, or die. There”s a lot of s**t I can”t put up with anymore. Killing”s not one of “em. Letting these guys go out and rape somebody else, isn”t either… (pleading – vehement) So open your mind and look at me! You know me. You think I could do it otherwise? I”m not a bad person. I”m a good person! A real good person! Now… I”m sorry baby, for all that stuff. For you to know… but look…. (Lee flips open her vanity and flops an impressive bundle of cash on the table. Selby”s jaw drops.) Look Sell… you see what this is? This right here is everything, everything you”ve ever wanted! See? I told you I”d take care of you! And look… (excited) This here, is almost enough to buy another pressure cleaning unit, man! I know you want more, I know you want the good life, so here it is! Self-employed, put all this behind us… You think I”d let the world stop me from that?? No, you”re my girl!? I”d get you anything you ever asked for.More Monologues from “Monster”
