Enemy of the State script
Synopsis: Corrupt National Security Agency official Thomas Reynolds (Jon Voight) has a congressman assassinated to assure the passage of expansive new surveillance legislation. When a videotape of the murder ends up in the hands of Robert Clayton Dean (Will Smith), a labor lawyer and dedicated family man, he is framed for murder. With the help of ex-intelligence agent Edward "Brill" Lyle (Gene Hackman), Dean attempts to throw Reynolds off his trail and prove his innocence.

DEAN:

That's because your Union bosses

are those Guido mother-fuckers.

L.T.

I don't under--

DEAN:

The Union's trying to railroad you

into accepting terms worse than

what you have now.

L.T.

Why would the Union--

DEAN swivels around in his chair and faces L.T.

DEAN:

Because they've been paid off by

Bellmoth.

L.T.

Mr. Dean--

DEAN:

My name's Bobby. I'm your lawyer.

Don't do anything 'till I talk to you.

DEAN gets up and walks a grateful L.T. to the door,

calling to his secretary as they go--

DEAN (CONT'D)

(calling)

Martha!

MARTHA appears in the doorway...

DEAN (CONT'D)

Larry Spinks, St. Lukes. Send him a

case of chianti from the firm. And

send his wife Rosalie some flowers.

EXT. RESTAURANT - DAY

RACHEL:

How's the trout?

DEAN:

It tastes like fish.

RACHEL:

It is fish.

DEAN:

I mean it tastes like every other

fish I've ever had. Every fish

tastes the same.

RACHEL:

Do you like fish?

DEAN:

Not that much.

DEAN dines in a booth with RACHEL BANKS, 30's. RACHEL

opens her briefcase, removing an 8x10 envelope.
