Please forgive me if someone's asked and answered this elsewhere. I've had a crazy week and I'm exhausted.

Can I quote the Declaration of Independence as my SPY screenplay synopsis?

I think so. I quoted the part about replacing a Government not doing it's job, and this is a SPY genre story. Feels right. :)
