Billy Carter's Service Station 1979, (c) University of Georgia


INT. WHITE HOUSE EAST ROOM - NIGHT

Sybil strains to hear Jimmy’s speech from their table way at the back.  Billy’s showing Amy how to shoot spitballs.  Amy keeps missing, but Billy lands one on the neck of a dowager at the next table.  Amy and Billy crack up. 

LATER

Amy’s asleep.  Billy’s tipsy, reared back in his chair.  A proper MATRON at the table is going on about her trip.

MATRON
I will never fly commercial again.  You wouldn’t believe it, even in First Class!  The woman next to me was up and down, up and down every fifteen minutes.

BILLY
Hell, lady, give me a break!  Did you ever stop and think maybe she just had the squirts?

Everyone spits food across the table.

INT. WHITE HOUSE CORRIDOR
Two Secret Service agents help Billy down the hall.

BILLY
What the hell is all the fuss, I didn’t say nothing!  That old bag was going on and on --

SYBIL
That old bag owns the Washington Post.
