Elaine Miller: May I speak with William, please?
Estrella Starr: He's not here. I think he's in the bar with the band. They just got back from the radio station. Is this Mary Ann with the pot? ...Hello?
Elaine Miller: No, this isn't Mary Ann with the pot. This is Elaine. His mother. Could you please give him a message? Could you tell him to call home immediately? And could you also tell him -- I KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.
Estrella Starr: All right. But I'm just going to say this, and I'm going to stand by it: you should be really proud of him. 'Cause, I know guys, and I'll bet you do too. And he respects women, and he likes women, and let's just pause and appreciate a man like that. You created him out of thin air, and you raised him right, and we're all looking out for him. He's doing a great job, and don't worry -- he's still a virgin. And that's more than I've ever said to my own parents, so there you go. ...This is the maid speaking, by the way. (hangs up)
