- Boolie visits Miss Daisy, who says she's now nearly 90.
- She's going to attend a dinner with Martin Luther King, Jr. (That dinner really happened, too.)
- Boolie won't go because many of his business associates wouldn't approve, and might take their business elsewhere.
- Boolie suggests that Miss Daisy bring Hoke.
- She says he wouldn't go, but Boolie tells her to ask him and see.
- Hoke's in the kitchen trying to read the newspaper.
- While he's driving her to the dinner, she says that Boolie suggested that Hoke wanted to go to the dinner.
- But she doesn't exactly ask him if he wants to go.
- Hoke's offended that Miss Daisy, who had the invitation to the dinner for a month, waited until the night of the dinner to bring this up.
- Now she's offended that he's offended, and she marches into the ballroom by herself.
- She sits at a table with an empty seat next to her.
- Hoke sits in the car and listens to the speech on the radio.
- Dr. King is talking about all the decent people who sit back and don't do anything about injustice.
- The camera lingers on Daisy's face as she hears this.
