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."
