Summary of clip: The scene
opens with Dr. Arroway (Jodie Foster) discovering a message buried in
a radio wave, while doing SETI research. The message is believed to be
of extra-terrestrial origin. When the government hears of this discovery
they rush down to take over the research. Dr. Arroway, the original researcher,
wants to be in charge of the program, but her superior (Dr. Drebin), who
thought Dr. Arroway's research was a waste of time earlier in the movie,
takes partial credit and heads the program himself.
