Wendell Smith : [typing his news story] Robinson rounds third, headed for home sweet home.
[Wendell speeds away from a crowd of threatening white men]
Jackie Robinson : What the hell, Wendell?
Wendell Smith : A man came by while you was asleep. He said more men were coming. It might have been those fellas. Mr. Rickey said to get you to Daytona Beach ASAP.
Jackie Robinson : Why didn't you say so?
Wendell Smith : Well, Mr. Rickey was afraid you wouldn't want to leave. You'd want to stay there and fight.
[Jackie starts laughing]
Wendell Smith : Man, what in the hell are you laughing at?
Jackie Robinson : I thought you woke me because, because I was cut from the team.
