- Isn't this 4215 Pussy Way?

- You bitch!

Now let me check the zip code:


Beverly darling, you home?

The police are tracing this call

this very minute.

Well, Dottie Hinkle, then why

aren't they here, fuckface?

F*ck you!

Beverly, you home?

I know you are.

- Didn't I just say "f*ck you"?

- I beg your pardon.

Who is this?

Mrs. Wilson

from the telephone company.

I understand you're having problems

with an obscene phone caller.

Yes, I am. I'm sorry, Mrs. Wilson,

but this is driving me crazy.

I've had my number changed

twice already.

I'm a divorced woman.

Please help me.

What exactly does

this sick individual say to you?

I can't say the words out loud.

I don't use bad language.

I know it's difficult, but we need

to know the exact words.

I'll try.

"Cocksucker. "

That's what she calls me.

Listen to your filthy mouth,

you fuckin' whore!

Goddamn you!

- Motherfucker!

- Cocksucker!

- Rosemary.

- Are you all right?

Yes, of course, I'm fine.

How nice. You remembered.

It's the least I could do.

I heard shouting.

It's that cable TV company.

You know how they are.

- Did you hear about poor Dottie Hinkle?

- Yes, I did.

It's terrifying. The police were

at my house this morning.

Now, who on earth would want

to harass poor Dottie Hinkle?

Mr. Stubbins, my son studies

every night.

He's trying as hard as he can!

Some teenagers just aren't

college material, Mrs. Taplotter.

It's nothing to cry over.

Now, there are other parents


Thank you for taking the time

to come to PTA.

- Hi, Betty.

- Oh, hi, Beverly.

- I love your outfit.

- Thanks.

Liz Claiborne.

Well, Mrs. Sutphin,

where's that husband of yours?

Feeling a little down in the mouth?

Ralph, you're so funny.

Yes, right here.

I'm Paul Stubbins,

Chip's math teacher.
