JACKIE (CONT’D)

Welcome to the White House. We’re

so proud to call it home.

Her brow furrows, still dissatisfied.

NANCY:

Why don’t you try ‘the people’shouse’? Make it more personal.

Jackie considers the suggestion. And now --with thatnotorious, breathy diction...

JACKIE:

Welcome to the people's house.

We're so proud to call it home.

Better?

Nancy nods.

JACKIE (CONT’D)

When will Jack join us?

NANCY:

They want to hear from you.

Jackie is skeptical -

JACKIE:

They think I’m a fool --one yearin office, wasting their money.

NANCY:

That’s why you need to show themwhat you’ve done.

Nancy can tell Jackie is still uneasy.

NANCY (CONT’D)

The President will join you in theMonroe Room. At the end of the

tour. You'll be great.

Jackie smiles, grateful and takes a deep breath.

JACKIE:

Stay close.

NANCY:

Of course. You look beautiful.

Jackie walks onto set and the TV LIGHTS turn ON.
