Why do you want to use preg?  What are you trying to do, there might be a simpler way.

Just a typo -- you need to include the slash before the word script

The regex you want is:

/\|\d{4}\|\d{4}";\<\/script\>/

What's the result you want? Do you want the 2 numbers separately? If so, you'll want to use preg_match_all
