Officer Burroughs: Sorry?
Jill Johnson: It's Jill, the girl who called before about the man who keeps on calling.
Officer Burroughs: What's going on?
Jill Johnson: He called me again.
Officer Burroughs: What did he say?
Jill Johnson: He's out there, he's outside, he's watching me through the windows.
Officer Burroughs: Did you see him?
Jill Johnson: No, but I know he can see me, because I went upstairs..
Officer Burroughs: Okay, take a deep breath, where's the house keeper?
Jill Johnson: I don't know, I saw her purse and the keys but I can't find her.
Officer Burroughs: The house locked up?
Jill Johnson: Yes.
Officer Burroughs: Alarm system?
Jill Johnson: It's on.
Officer Burroughs: Okay, you're safe inside that house. If he wanted to break in, he wouldn't be calling.
Jill Johnson: But he must want something!
Officer Burroughs: Listen to me, Miss, it's just some asshole trying to hassle you.

Jill Johnson: You really scared me, if that's what you wanted. Is that what you wanted?
Voice of the Stranger: No.
Jill Johnson: What do you want?
Voice of the Stranger: Your blood all over me.

[The phone rings again, Jill abruptly answers it.]
Jill Johnson: Stop calling me you sick...!---
Officer Burroughs: [on phone] Jill, listen to me. We traced the call. It's coming from inside the house!...
[Jill's eyes widen in shock.]
Officer Burroughs: [on phone] ...Do you hear me? It's coming from inside the house! You need to get out! Jill?
[The power goes out. Jill hear a cellphone ringing, She turns around and finds Tiffany's dead body. Jill shrieks.]

Jill Johnson: Where is he?
Officer Burroughs: We got him. He's in that police car right over there. In ankle cuffs, handcuffs. Enought sedatives to kill a horse. We're gonna take him to the hospital. We'll have four cops guarding him around the clock.
Jill Johnson: That's not enough.

Officer Burroughs: Has he been using threatening language?
Jill Johnson: No, sometimes he doesn't even say anything, he just keeps on calling.
