Oh, you son of a b*tch!

You big, beautiful son of a b*tch!

Guess who just walked in the door.


You want to say hello?


She's sitting right here,

getting very, very horny just

thinking about you.

- Don't stop!

Oh, yeah!

All right!



Hank? You still there, baby?






I cannot stand it when they do that.

What do you want them to do...

hold you and say they love you?

Well, they could say goodbye,

for Christ's sake.

That's the least they could do.

Post coitum omne animal

triste est.


It means "after sex, men are



You'd think for once, they'd be happy.

Yeah, well, that's why they

always want to roll over and go

to sleep afterwards.

They're deeply depressed.

You were supposed to be here

at midnight, you know.

I know. I'm sorry.

So, there's this guy in my

building, and he's kind of shy

and pudgy and funny-looking,

with hair falling in his eyes.

I bet you he calls places like this.

He's the type.

You know what I mean?

I mean, don't you think about

what they're like, these guys,

when you're talking to them?

No. Never.

I do, especially when I get a

nice-sounding voice on the line...

you know, shy, like this

guy in my building.

I want to tell them to go join a

club or go on Facebook...

Or something!

Or just ask someone!

I mean, maybe someone will say yes!

You never know!

But getting off over the phone

seems... So lonely.


What did men do before

telephones, like in the

19th century?

They patronized whores.

Well... We're not whores.

No. That's right. We're not.

We are...

we're fantasy facilitators, and

that's the problem with the

world today, Ginny.

There are no competent whores

out there!

There's... there are no whores

who, you know, they really care

about their work!

But given the state of the

profession, I guess phone sex is...

A better idea.

I'll see you tomorrow!

Mm-hmm. Okay.

And could you try not to be

late, please?

Yes. Right.


Duffy's tavern, where the elite

meet to eat.

This is George Papandreou.

Mr. Papandreou!

How's it going?

You got a new number!

You're behind on the rent again!

Uh, the rent?

What do you me... the rent?

Oh. Here's what happened.

I got a new bank account, and

they sent me the wrong checks.

I...I asked... I had asked for a

coat of arms.

Did you know my family has a

coat of arms?

Jesus, I'm talking to a f***ing bird.

Ah, f***.

"Sweet talk."

Sweet talk.

Hello. Sweet talk.

Who's this?

This is delilah.

You want to talk?

About what?

Uh, you name it, baby.



Anything... the hotter, the better.

What about dancing?

Can we dance?

We can do whatever you want to do.

Oh, hey. Come on. Don't be shy.

No one's gonna bite you... Unless

you want to be bitten.



He-hey, don't hang up.

I'm here.


What do I have to do?

What do you have to do?

Well, uh, yeah.

I've never done this before, so

you're gonna have to help

explain how this works.

All right.

That's not a problem.

What's your name?




Okay, John.

Here's how it works.

We can talk about... Anything you

want for as long as you want,

and then...

how much does it cost?

I'm getting to that.

Just want to know what I'm in for.


We charge 20 bucks to start out,

and then $2.99 a minute goes

Peter Lefcourt

Peter Lefcourt (born 1946) is an American television producer, a film and television screenwriter, and a novelist. Lefcourt's early career involved writing teleplays for primetime series such as Cagney and Lacey, Scarecrow and Mrs. King (both of which he also produced), Eight is Enough, and Remington Steele, among others. He penned the scripts for the television movies Monte Carlo, Cracked Up, Danielle Steel's Fine Things, and The Women of Windsor. In more recent years he executive-produced and wrote for Beggars and Choosers and Karen Sisco. Lefcourt was nominated for a 1984 Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series for Cagney and Lacey and won the following year. Much of Lefcourt's fiction has been inspired by his true-life experiences working behind-the-scenes in Hollywood. His first novel, The Deal, was adapted for the screen by William H. Macy and debuted at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Several others of his books are under option or in various stages of development for feature films. His other novels are The Dreyfus Affair (1992), Di & I (1994), Abbreviating Ernie (1997), The Woody (1998), Eleven Karens (2003), The Manhattan Beach Project (2005), Le Jet Lag (2007), An American Family (2010) and Purgatory Gardens (2015). Lefcourt lives with his wife Terri in Santa Monica, California. In a 2012 interview with Larry Mantle on KPCC's Airtalk, Lefcourt stated he signed with Amazon.com to publish and distribute his most recent book "with some trepidation". He said friends told him he was 'joining the enemy', but his backlist is selling better electronically on Amazon.com than in it did at traditional booksellers while in print. more…
