On a one unlucky night, Mrs. Stevenson, an invalid woman, finds herself alone in her house.
Oh no! What's taking him so long?
Operator, I’ve been trying to call Murray Hill 4-0098 for the last half hour and it’s been busy. I don’t see how it could possibly be busy that long. Can you try that number for me, please.
I don’t see how it could be busy all that time. It’s my husband’s office and I’m all alone here in the house. My health is very poor and I've been feeling so nervous all day.
I will try that number for you. One moment, please.
C'mon Elbert, please pick up.
Ringing Murray Hill 4-0098…
Yes sir? This is George speaking.
Elbert? Is that you?
Hello, who is this? What number am I calling, please?
Good? That's great. I'm in a phone booth. Don't worry, everything's ok.
I'm here with our client. He says that the coast is good tonight. Where are you now?
Very well, you know the address…
Yes, I know, I know. Let’s see now…at 11 o’clock, the private patrolman goes around the corner to 2nd Avenue for a beer.
That’s right. Eleven o’clock. And be sure all the lights downstairs are out. There should be only one light visible from the street. Also, take note... As little blood as possible. Our client wants this mission to look like a simple robbery.
