Smokey and the Bandit script
Synopsis: Big Enos (Pat McCormick) wants to drink Coors at a truck show, but in 1977 it was illegal to sell Coors east of the Mississippi River without a permit. Truck driver Bo "Bandit" Darville (Burt Reynolds) agrees to pick up the beer in Texas and drive it to Georgia within 28 hours. When Bo picks up hitchhiker Carrie (Sally Field), he attracts the attention of Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason). Angry that Carrie will not marry his son, Justice embarks on a high-speed chase after Bandit.

DICKEY:

I still think this whole idea is

dumb, pop.

KYLE:

Then it must be a helluva idea.

Kyle laughs. His laugh then turns into a hacking cough.

DICKEY:

Why don't we just rent a Lear jet

and haul it back ourselves?

KYLE:

Because I wanna see this hot shot

Bandit do something that can't be

done. Besides, there's nothing I

like better than breaking legends.

He laughs, coughs again, continues walking.

DICKEY:

(not getting it)

But if it can't be done, how's he

gonna do it?

KYLE:

That's the point, Dickey.

DICKEY:

Oh.

KYLE:

Now, you just find him, son.

DICKEY:

Yes, sir.

Dickey crosses to a trucker couple, polishing up their chromed

rig.

DICKEY:

Say, hoss. Where might I locate the

Bandit?

HUSBAND:

Ain't seen him.

WIFE:

(immediately)

Over there behind his rig.
