Marge Gunderson: Can you be any more specific?
Hooker No. 1: I couldn't really say... He wasn't circumcised.

Marge Gunderson: It's terrific.

[repeated line]
Marge Gunderson: Oh yah!

Marge Gunderson: So, do you remember getting a phone call Wednesday night?
Shep Proudfoot: [after a short pause] No.
Marge Gunderson: You do reside there at 1425 Freemont Terrace?
Shep Proudfoot: Yes.
Marge Gunderson: Anyone else residing there?
Shep Proudfoot: No.
Marge Gunderson: Well, Mr. Proudfoot, this call came in past three in the morning. It's just hard for me to believe you don't remember anyone calling your place at that time. Now, I know you have some problems; struggling with the narcotics, smothering tank, currently on parole.
Shep Proudfoot: So?
Marge Gunderson: Well, associating with criminals if you're the one they talked to... that right there would be a violation of your parole. Would land you back in stillbar. Now, I saw some rough stuff on your priors, but nothing in the nature of a homicide. I know you don't want to be an accessory to something like that.
[after another pause]
Marge Gunderson: So... you think you remember anything about those folks who called ya now?
