Mr. Bean [1.01]Edit

[Mr. Bean is driving his red Mini behind a blue Reliant. He tries overtaking it. He succeeds, the Reliant drifting to the side. Bean parks the car, not knowing he tipped off a sign saying "To the EXAMINATION HALL". He grabs his bag, locks his car, and throws the keys back to the car through a hinged glass window. He enters the university to an exam session. He sits down beside a male student with a blue jacket.]

Student: Done your revision?
Mr. Bean: Uh, oh yes.
[laughter from audience]
Mr. Bean: I concentrated on trigonometry.
Student: I've done calculus, mainly.
Mr. Bean: Oh! I believe they concentrated on calculus last year!
Student: Oh! Oh dear!
[Mr. Bean snickers]
Instructor: Quiet, ladies and gentlemen, please. The exam will commence in two minutes.
[The student beside him places a pen on the table, Bean places his pen in a similar fashion. The student then places a small crayon beside the pen, Bean places a red colour pencil beside his pen. Then Bean places five more pens, behind the first, then places the rest of his pens from his jacket. He then grabs his bag and picks up a toy officer, then a Pink Panther toy, and an alarm clock. He sets the alarm clock.]
Instructor: Ladies and gentlemen, you may open the envelopes containing your papers. The exam starts... now.
[Bean and the student take the same green paper from the envelope, and they begin their tests. After some time, Bean tries to copy the student's test may times, but to no avail. Bean weeps on the table.]
Mr. Bean: Mummy!
[Cut to the clock, many minutes have passed]
Instructor: Two minutes, ladies and gentlemen. At the end, would those with the green calculus papers, please put them in the green box; and those who answered the white trigonometry papers, please put them in the white box.
[Audience laughing at "...trigonometry papers..."]
[Bean takes a white paper from the envelope, and begins answering. He tries writing with his pen, but it has no ink. He takes the student's pen (even though he is still using it) and then scribbles the paper quickly.]
Instructor: Stop writing, please.
[Bean does not pay attention to the instructor.]
Instructor: I said, "stop writing".
[Bean faces the instructor but still writing.]
Instructor: Will you stop writing?!
[Bean's alarm clock rings, and he hammers the table with it.]

[Bean drives through the countryside, and passes the Reliant again, drifting it to the grass. He quickly parks his car, hitting and pushing a sign saying "TO THE BEACH". Cut to a large cliff with stairs, with Bean walking down, multiple cuts of Bean walking down in different times. He finally descends the stairs to a small beach.]

The Return of Mr. Bean [1.02]Edit

Waiter: Would you like to try the house wine?
Bean: No, no, no, no. I'm driving.

[Bean is in a Restaurant and has just tried his Steak Tatare which he doesn't like. He is making an awful face]
Manager: Everything to your satisfaction sir?
Bean: [Grinning] Mmmm.
[Manager goes away and Bean grimmaces again]
Waiter: Is everything all right sir?
Bean: Oh, yes.
Waiter: Are you sure?
Bean: Mmmm, yes. [Picks up a forkful as if he is about to eat it but hesitates to put it in his mouth]
[The Waiter goes and Bean quickly disposes of the offending food]

The Curse of Mr. Bean [1.03]Edit

Lifeguard: Would you get out of there, please?

Lifeguard: Everybody out now, please.

Mr. Bean: Just popped out for lunch
Man in Park: Me, too. Nothing like a quick sandwich.
Mr. Bean: No, absolutely.
[Bean has spread butter onto his sandwich with his credit card]
Mr. Bean: My flexible friend.
Mr. Bean "ATCHOO!"

Mr. Bean: No! These are mine.

Mr. Bean: Come on!

Mr. Bean Goes To Town [1.04]Edit

[At a magic show Bean is onstage and the magician has made his watch disappear. Drumroll.]
Mr. Bean: I'm looking for my watch. It fell down here...
[The assistant puts Bean into a magic box]
Mr. Bean: Wait!
[The magician closes the magic box with the square slot. Bean opens the slot, revealing his face.]
Mr. Bean: (to the magician) Excuse me, I'm looking for my watch!
[The magician immediately shuts the slot. His assistant throws him a sword. He proves the audience that the swords are real and thrusts them at the box.]
Man on audience: Behind you!
[Meanwhile, Mr. Bean is already outside the box and tries to find his watch. Several cuts between Bean and Irma. The magician thrusts more swords into the box]
Another man on audience: Boo!
[Mr. Bean finds his watch behind the magician's pants, cut to table where Irma was sitting, she disappears. Mr. Bean runs out from the stage, from to the room. Crowd boos. The magician comes out from the room, but cannot find Mr. Bean, who is in the disco room.]

[Rupert and Hubert have put the clock forward to midnight while Bean is out of the room so they can escape his dull New Year's Eve Party]
Rupert and Hubert: Ah, Happy New Year!
Mr. Bean: Goodness me. Doesn't time fly when you're enjoying yourself? I know! (shaking hands while singing):
Mr. Bean, Rupert, and Hubert: Should auld acquaintance be forgot...
Mr. Bean: Oh! (brings Teddy, then all sing Auld Lang Syne again)
Mr. Bean: (mimicking as Teddy) Hooray, hooray!
(Rupert and Hubert yawn, say goodbye to Bean; removed partyhats but goes to another room)
Partygoers: (counting down from 10) ...3, 2, 1! Happy New Year! (singing Auld Lang Syne; Bean checks clock above fireplace and another on his cabinet)
A Partygoer: Three cheers for Rupert and Hubert!
(Audience laughs, as Bean goes back to bed.)

Man in ambulance 1: What's wrong? Here, give it to me.
[Scene changes to the waiting room.]
Nurse 1: Twenty-two (22).
[Bean takes the doll from the girl's hands and throws it. The girl goes with her mother to pick it up, leaving the queue.

Nurse 2: 53.
Nurse on PA: Dr Marlow, have you got your beeper on? Thank you.
[Mr. Bean goes back to the reception, the same two men that were fighting are back on the queue. Bean pushes them both.]
Man 2: It's you!
Man 1:You're risking your life, sunbeam!
[Bean moves forward towards the clerk. The clerk looks up and sees Mr. Bean's angry face.]
Clerk: Name?
Mr. Bean: (angrily) Bean!
Clerk: And what is the problem?
Mr. Bean: The problem... [He shows the clerk the teapot stuck in his hand and then complains about waiting for a long time. Mr. Bean then starts banging the teapot on the counter.] come on, do something about it!
Clerk: Take a ticket and have a seat please.
[Mr. Bean takes a ticket, but is shocked to see that the ticket has a higher number. Out of frustration, he then angrily throws the ticket in the bin, and pushes it further down, but his hand is stuck in the bin. Using his mouth he takes another ticket, and take his seat. On the background, the shorter man is beating up the taller man.]

[Bean passes a Royal Guard, and tries to take a picture of him.]
[A few seconds after Bean sets the timer, the Guard hears a command and leaves his post but Bean goes after him. The camera shutters, the picture only sees Bean leaving.]
Mr. Bean: Oh, no! [growls]

[Bean toothbrushes his teeth, then his ears, and goes to his bedroom]
[He opens a cabinet revealing a pistol and shoots the lightbulb.]
[Bean turns on the TV to a chess match, then a Bodyform commercial awakes him and he turns off the TV.]
Mr. Bean: Of course!
[He places a picture of sheep beside the bed and opens the curtain. He counts them with his fingers, then with a calculator.]
Mr. Bean: Ah!
[He finally goes to sleep. At the end of the credits, he falls down from the bed.]

Hair By Mr. Bean of London [1.14]Edit

[Mr. Bean was bored to wait for barber and plays with the scissors and comb. Suddenly, door opens and a woman and a young boy comes in]
Woman: Sorry, Derek, can you just leave Jamie here with you, I just left my purse in the shop back there, so just give him a good haircut - be good Jamie, it's a terrible mess?
[Bean uses a bowl and scissors to trim the boy's sides, then an electric cutter to shave the middle, making the old man hair style.]
Jamie: Yeah, yeah, that's right!
[Bean quickly puts the boy's cap to his head to hide his style.]
Woman: All right, keep the change!

Derek: Suzie's here Tuesdays. [The same phone rings again] Two minutes.
Roger: (enters) Morning, Derek!
Derek: Good morning.
Roger: The usual please, Derek.
[Bean puts Roger with cover, then the man with ponytail enters inside again.]
Man with ponytail: I was first. Just the split ends at the back. (Bean sprays the man's hair, and uses the mirror, but steals a picture from the board, and presents the man with the mirror with the picture.) All right, keep the change.
Derek: Oh dear, what a day!
Roger: Thanks, Derek! Very nice.
Derek: Roger? Roger!
Woman: Wait, where is he?
Derek: Whoa! What... what?
Woman: Where is he? What on earth do you call this?! (removes Jamie's cap, revealing the Bean's artistic hairstyle)
Jamie: But I like it.
Woman: You don't like it.
Jamie: I do!
Woman: Shut up, Jamie. Now look, listen to me...
Derek: What are you trying to say?
Man with ponytail: Oi! Where's my ponytail?
Woman: ...what I am trying to say, my son looks like an ape! (the man presents Derek the cut part where his hair used to be)
Derek: Don't shout, madam!
Man with ponytail: Have you got any idea how long it took me to grow that?
Woman: (to the man) Excuse me, excuse me! (to her son) Shush!
Man with ponytail: Nearly two and a half years, and your man chops it off in less than two minutes! Where is he?
(Bean with the Prince Charles calendar/picture is walking sideways, passing Derek and the angry customers.)
Roger: Have you seen this? (points at his hair, then bows at Bean, thinking he was Prince Charles) Sir! (Bean twirls his two fingers.) Derek, have you gone mad? (indistinct arguing)
Man with ponytail: Your assistant, where is he?
Woman: Derek, whatever your name is...
(Bean, still wearing the calendar, peeks at the door and leaves)

Old man: Would you like a go? (Bean gives some coins to him) Thank you.
(Bean plays the wire, but another buzzer sounds and he returns the object back)
Old man: Another one? (Bean gives more coins to him) Thank you.
(Bean snaps the plug under the table game, then moves the object to the other side of the wire without any buzzing sounds.)
Old man: Well done, sir.
Mr. Bean:Thank you.
(The old man notices the plug and outlet cut by Bean.)
(Cut to another parlor game, this time it is called "Hit the Headmaster", a man with glasses facing a large board with a picture of a headmaster. A girl giggles as she throws sponges on the face of the headmaster. She misses three times.)
(Bean wants to play Hit the Headmaster, and gives coins to the man with another bucket of sponges and some large rings)
Man: Thank you very much.
(Bean squeezes the first sponge to prove it is wet and soft, then throws toward the headmaster, but misses. Bean snickers, then throws two more sponges, one reaching above the headmaster's face, he laughs, then throws the last sponge, but also misses. Bean looks at the bucket with no sponges, then drops the bucket. Burst of laughter from the audience as he throws cans of peas from a nearby table at the headmaster, frightening the headmaster. He also throws a cereal box. He gets two more cans of peas.)
Man: Oi, oi, oi! (Hands the can, but throws the other one to the headmaster, but misses again. Bean goes off-screen, and back, preparing to throw a chair)
Man: No! (The man takes the chair away from Bean. Bean glares at the headmaster, with little reaction from the headmaster)

Judge 2: All right, quiet please! Quiet. The obedience test.
Boy 1: Stay, stay, stay... (his dog rushes to him)

[Mr. Bean lost his ticket while on the train station. He tries many ways to get through but to no avail. Then on a cargo transporter, a sack fall down, we know Bean is inside, and climbs the gate, not knowing two employees flipping the gate and noticing the sack. Bean cheers thinking he is on the other side and runs to the train tracks and falls. He climbs back, hears a horn and sits beside the crates. The employees pick up the crates and the sack still with Bean inside to the transporter.]
[The cargo is put in a train, with Bean still on the sack. The cargo door closes, revealing its destination: "MOSCOW - (НПУЛЦА)"]
