"The Ugly Truth" (2009)
Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl) is a morning show TV producer in Sacramento, California. Coming home from a disastrous date one night, she happens to see a segment of a local television show, "The Ugly Truth", run by Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), whose cynicism about relationships prompts Abby to call into the show to argue with him on-air. The next day, she discovers that the station is threatening to cancel her show because of its poor ratings, and the station owner has hired Mike to do a segment on her show to bring them back up.
INT. ABBY'S CONDO - LIVING ROOM NIGHT 55
Mike avoids the cat while waiting in the living room.
ABBY (O.S.) I just don't want to be perceived as a bimbo.
MIKE I don't want you to be a bimbo. You need to be two people, the saint and the sinner, the librarian and the stripper. It's a delicate balance. On one hand, you have to push the guy away with cold indifference and yet on the other hand be a sexually teasing tornado.
Abby enters, looking amazing in a little black dress and sling backs. Her hair and make-up are sexy but not trashy.
ABBY Well just don't sit there. Say something.
MIKE You need glasses.
ABBY But I wear contacts. Besides, doesn't the woman usually remove glasses during a makeover?
MIKE Yeah, but we're going for a stripper–librarian thing. Right now, I wouldn't trust you to find me a book.
Abby opens a drawer and takes out some glasses. She puts them on.
MIKE Not bad.
