As Billie and Talulah enter the hotel, Billie is denied from using the elevator even with her new fame. Because she's black, she is to use the service elevator. The serviceman then goes on to state that his job is at risk if he allows her to enter, along with the fact that Black men and women are killed in the South. Bewildered, Billie throws her cigarette at him and leaves the establishment.
