Stop honking the horn.

What's going on?

- Hello?

- Why are you home?

I skipped soccer.

I wanted to help set up.

Is Maria there?

I sent her off with Megan,

to keep the decorations a surprise.

You're such a sweetie.

I'm afraid I'm gonna be late.

I'm in a horrific traffic jam.

- What else is new?

- All right.

- Did you pick up the balloons?

- Got the balloons.

I had an idea about the streamers...

Will you put some towels under the ice

sculpture, so it doesn't ruin the rug?

Hang on a second.

Someone's at the door. Coming.



What's happening?

- Stop!


- I hear you, Julie.

Stop, please!

No! No! No!

Julie, do you hear me?

I won't hang up.

Julie, I won't leave you.

Can you phone the police for me,

please? Please, help me.

- Do you have a phone?

- Yes.

Call the police. Send them to my house

at 244 Eden Street in the Palisades.

Julie, I've got help.

Can you hear me? I'll get there, Julie.

I'll get there.

Help is coming, Julie.

Help me!

I'll stay with you. Can you hear me?

The police are on their way.

I won't hang up the phone.

Julie? Julie?

Who's there?

Do you want something?

Are you OK? Wait a minute.


If you want to make a call, hang up

and try again. If you need help...
