Location: EXT. EXPRESSWAY - HOWARD JOHNSON'S - NIGHT
The Bluesmobile and the Cadillac pull off the road into the parking lot of a Howard Johnson.
JAKE: You guys get yourself a bite to eat. I've got to make a phone call.
AL: Now, does this phone call concern our first gig, Jake?
JAKE: Have I ever lied to you?
Mr. Fabulous doesn't even bother to answer that one. He and the rest of the band go in the restaurant leaving Jake and Elwood by the cars.ELWOOD: What are we gonna do, Jake? We don't got no gig.
JAKE: How much money you got?
Elwood reaches into his pocket and comes out with one coin.ELWOOD: I got a quarter Jake.
JAKE: Well that's enough for a phone call. Come on.
Jake and Elwood walk over to the phone booth. It is behind the Ho-Jo kitchen door, next to the propane tank. Jake opens the door and Elwood tries to join him in the booth. There is a moment of awkwardness but the two manage to squeeze in together.
Location: INT. PHONE BOOTH
Elwood and Jake stand pressed together in the phone booth, Jake's face in Elwood's chest.JAKE: What are you doing, Elwood?
ELWOOD: You said we were gonna make a call.
JAKE: I said I was gonna make a call.
ELWOOD: Who you gonna call, Jake?
JAKE: Remember Maury Sline?
ELWOOD: Sline? Oh yeah, the booking agent. What about him?
JAKE: He got us some good showcases in the old days. He got us the Morgan Park, the Tick-Tock and I got him laid. He owes me.
Just then the red Pontiac Grand Prix screeches to a stop 30 feet from the phone booth. The Mystery Woman jumps out of the front seat carrying a U.S. Army Flame Thrower. She releases a 30-foot stream of fire at the phone booth. The flame engulfs the propane tanks causing a tremendous explosion which dislodges the phone booth and sends it hurtling intact across the parking lot. The rear of the Ho-Jo burns. The Mystery Woman retreats behind a stream of flame, jumps into the Pontiac and drives off.
