Depicting Ted Kennedy's involvement in the fatal 1969 car accident that claims the life of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne.
How Ted Kennedy got out of the car has never been explained. Neither he nor all the investigators (and investigations) offered an explanation.
Joey you have flaws. We all do, you said so yourself. Moses had a temper. Peter betrayed Jesus. I have Chappaquiddick.
Joseph Gargan: Yeah. Moses had a temper. But he never left a girl at the bottom of the Red Sea.
Ted asks the operator to make a collect call and gives his name, but never gives a phone number. The operator patches the call without it. By the late 1960s, pay phones allowed callers to directly dial a collect call by dialing a 0 rather than a 1 before the area code and phone number, and then telling the operator who picked up that it was a collect call and giving the operator his/her name.
