DEHAVEN'S AIDE

White House boys want a private

meeting.

DEHAVEN:

I'll act surprised.

INT. DEHAVEN'S OFFICE - CAPITOL BLDG. - DAY

Shoes dumped on her desk, DeHaven changes out knee-high

stockings while devoting one ear to...

WHITE HOUSE #1

... to reassure you that he has

every faith in the ability of Mr.

Hayes to guide the Navy into the

next century. The task, as the

Administration sees it, is to

acknowledge changing realities

without losing traditional values.

A beat. DeHaven looks between the two WHITE HOUSE boys --

#1 young and eager, #2 older and cagier.

DEHAVEN:

'Zat it? Ten minutes, nothin' on

the table? Sweetcakes, you best go

back to the President and tell him

to open up the phone book and start

lookin' for his next nominee.

White House #1 looks spanked. Taking over, #2 pops a

briefcase. An inch-think report appears before DeHaven.

WHITE HOUSE #2

Administration's plan for 100

percent integration. If female

candidates measure up in a series of

test cases, the President will

support full integration within

three years' time.

Surprised -- maybe even startled -- DeHaven flips through

the report, absorbing by osmosis.

WHITE HOUSE #2

It's your gender-blind Navy,

Senator. Surely you're not going to

balk now.

DEHAVEN:

Well, it's just that askin' you all

to integrate the Navy is like

sending a man to do a woman's job.

(a beat)

How do you propose to handle the

Combat Exclusion Laws?

WHITE HOUSE #2

Keep narrowing the definitions.

Keep redefining.

WHITE HOUSE #1

We got around it in Saudi Arabia.

DEHAVEN:

By calling women "Honorary Men."

Ingenious.

WHITE HOUSE #2

C'mon, Senator, President's pitchin'

right down the center of your plate.

If women measure up to men, they've

got the job. You going to take a

swing? Or step out of the box?
