One of the supporting roles in 'RED' is played by Rebecca Pidgeon, who is married to David Mamet and primarily appears only in movies written and/or directed by him. When you see Rebecca Pidgeon in a film, you think David Mamet must be involved. As it happens, that's not the case with 'RED.' But it was enough of an excuse for us to imagine what 'RED' would have been like if it had been written by David Mamet.

David Mamet's 'RED'

FRANK MOSES (Bruce Willis): F***ers shot up my house.
JOE MATHESON (Morgan Freeman): Your house?
FRANK: My house, the f***ers shot it up.
JOE: Those f***ers.
FRANK: Sons of b******.
JOE: Who were these f***ers?
FRAN : Dunno. The Company, maybe. Black ops? The hell do I know?
JOE: Did you get--
FRANK: Here, I got--
JOE: --I'm gonna need--
FRANK: --a manila envelope full of their fingers.
JO : --Yeah. Good.
FRANK: Figured you'd want that.
JOE: Sure I do.
FRANK: Run their prints and such like.
JOE : Run those f***ers' prints, see who they are.
FRAN : See who those f***ers are. The f***ers.
JOE: You get shot?
FRANK: Did I get shot?
JOE: Yeah, you get shot?
FRANK: The hell kind of a question is that? Did I get shot?
JO : Calm down, man, it's just a question.
FRANK: I know it's a question. Your voice went up at the end of it, like a question.
JO : OK.
FRAN : Plus I just identified it as a question when I said, 'The hell kind of a question is that?,' remember?
JOE: Calm down, man.
FRANK: No, I didn't get f*****' shot. Do I look like I got f*****' shot?
JOE: No.
FRANK: No, what?
JOE: No, you don't look like you got f*****' shot.
FRANK: That's right, a**hole.
JOE : Shoot me in the f*****' head for showing concern about my friend!
FRANK: Yeah, I need your concern like I need a f*****' second mortgage on my shot-up-by-f***ers house!
