Well, listen.

Are you and Hugh going out?

No. Hugh's got to st...

Hugh's got a business dinner.

Oh. Well, maybe I'll come over.

I'd really like a drink.

What movie's on tonight?

I don't know. I was going to go

to bed, but come on over.

Listen, I promised Judy

I'd call her.

I'll get right back to you, ok?

Ok. Fine.

I'll get right back.

- Bye.

- Bye-bye.



Is that you, Cathryn?

Yes. Who is it, please?

Do you know

where your husband is tonight?


I said, do you know...

where your husband is tonight?

Who's speaking, please?

You don't know?

- Hello?

- Hello. Alert.

This is a blow alert.

- This is the telephone company.

- Hugh, Hugh!

We're going

to blow out the lines.

Yeah, baby, it's me. Listen.

Listen, I just called

to tell you not to wait up.

I'm going to be later

than I thought.

- What?

- You hear me?


I just wanted to tell you.

Oh, fine.

Do you know

what's black and white...

...and black and white

and black and white? Huh?

A nun falling downstairs.

That's good, eh?

Listen, I'll see you

in the morning.

- Hugh?

- No, it's me.

Cathryn. Cathryn?

Yes? I want to speak

to my husband, please.

That's who I'm calling about...

old Hugh.

Please, will you

put my husband on?

Oh, Cathryn,

I would if I could.

If this is one

of Hugh's little jokes...

...just tell him

I don't think it's very funny.

- Funny, eh?

- Who's speaking, please?

Not funny.

At this moment,

old Hugh is with a girl...

...probably in bed by now... Ambassador Towers...

1334 Commercial Drive.

The telephone number

is 274-9382.

Why are you telling me this?

Why are you telling me this?


I just thought

I'd better tell you...

...if you try to call them...'ll probably get

a busy sound.
