dramatis personae Jim/ Ralph (m), Wendy (f)

Synopsis "Jim is a lonely guy in New York City. Late one night, he drunkenly calls a phone sex line he saw advertised in a porno magazine. After listening to a bizarre recorded menu of "hot horny ladies," he chooses one. Her name is Wendy, and she is in a bad mood this particular night. She ridicules Jim and refuses to cooperate with his sex fantasy to the point where he tells her off and throws the phone down. But he never hangs up. Eventually, they start talking. Jim wants to find out why she does what she does, but she evades him. Jim confesses that his name is really Ralph. Wendy admits that she uses a fake name for phone sex, then becomes angry when Ralph pesters her to reveal her real name. They discuss Ralph's problem--loneliness. Wendy assures Ralph that he is a nice guy and he will find a girl, all he has to do is try. She makes him promise to ask out a girl he admires but has never spoken to. Then she tells him to hang up and go to bed. Ralph sincerely thanks her, and hangs up. Wendy confesses, to no one, her real name as the lights go down."
