Moving onto the Hollywood Freeway,

we have a multiple vehicle...

multiple injury accident.

An absolute mess

from VineStreet to the valley.

If you're in it,

expect a long commute.

If you're not,

seek alternate routes.

If Dan doesn 't want to do a daily rate,

we can talk about a weekly rate.

But I'm tellin' you right now,

I'm not goin' below a million.

I mean, think about it.

I'm risking my reputation...

as the host

of this country's number-one...

nationally syndicated talk show to do

a cameo in some cheap slasher flick.

I mean, why can't these guys write me

a f***in' decent part?

You know?

I lived through the f***in' thing.

By the way, did you talk to Cathy

about that Navy SEAL script?

Hang on a sec.

- Hello?

- Hello?

- Who's this?

- Who's this?

- Who are you calling?

- Oh. You know what?

- I'm sorry. I have the wrong number.

- That's okay.

Wait a minute. I know your voice.

You sound a lot like that guy on TV.

Um, Cotton Weary.

- I do, huh?

- Yeah.

I think he's got

a really sexy voice.

- Well, thank you.

- Wait a minute.

You are Cotton, aren't you?

Oh, my God.

I am talking to Cotton Weary.

I can't believe this.

You got me. Look, I've--

I've got someone on the other line.

Can you hold on one second?

I'll be right back, I promise.

- Yeah.

- Okay.

- Yeah.

Andrea, uh, I gotta call you back.

Someone's on the other line.

So, uh, you a big 100% Cotton fan?

- Yeah! One hundred and ten percent.

- That's very good.

So, um, why don't you tell me

who you are?

Ooh! You're a naughty boy, Cotton.

Now, what would your girlfriend say?

What makes you think

I have a girlfriend?

I know you do.

- I'm right outside her bathroom door.

- Who is this?

She's in the shower.

She's got a nice little voice.

Let's come in for a closer look.

She's very pretty, Cotton.

A step up from

Maureen Prescott.

Speaking of which,

let's play a little game.

Answer right,

your girlfriend lives.

Answer wrong, she dies.

- Where's Maureen's daughter, Sidney?

- Who the f*** is this?

Somebody who'd kill to know

where Sidney Prescott is!

One chance, Cotton!

You've got connections. Where is she?

You listen to me, you f***in' psycho.

You lay a finger on Christine...

- and I swear to God I'll kill you.

- Wrong answer!

No! Wait!

Hello? Sh*t!

- Hey!

- Get outta the way!

- You just hit me!

- Move!

Christine, if you're there,

pick up the phone!

Christine, pick up the phone!

Oh, sh*t!

You have reached 911.

Due to the volume of calls--

Someone pick up the goddam phone!

Move outta the way!

Sh*t! Sh*t!

Cotton, is that you?



Okay, Cotton.

You know I don't like

your Stab games.

- Who is it? Who's there?

- Christine?

Hon, you all right?

- I'm home.

-Jesus! You scared the sh*t outta me.

- You're not gonna believe

what just happened to me.

- What are you talking about?

- Get the hell out of here!

- Okay. Okay, I'm sorry, babe.

I didn't mean to scare you that bad.

It's me. Come on, open the door.

- What are you doing?

- What?

- What the f*** are you doing?

I was-- I was just, you know, trying

to take the game to the next level.

- I'm sorry. Come on,

open the door, Chris.

- The game?

- Yeah, the game!

- What are you talking about?

I'm talking about how much fun it's

gonna be to rip your insides out!

Now, open the f***in' door, Christine!

- Oh, my God!

- Now you're f***in' history, baby!



The recent epidemic of roadrage

in Los Angeles.

- Innocent commuters mercilessly

terrorized, even killed...

- Chris?

- by these madmen of the freeway.
