Unidentified caller number TWo: Meowwwwww.

1055: 55. You got a callback? There's a lady standing behind the door, refuses to open. She sounds like she's highly intoxicated.

Dispatcher: Don't want to open? I guess we can move on. Unless you want us to call 'em back.

1055: Call back.

Dispatcher: All right. Hey, 1055, she says she ain't callin' for the police.
