The clock strikes 11 PM. Becoming more and more scared, Leona phones Bellevue Hospital to hire a nurse, but they don't provide that service. Meanwhile, the shadow of a man can be seen entering the house through an open window. Suddenly Leona hears a click on the phone, as though someone has picked up the extension. Terrified, she hangs up and begins screaming at the person in the house, hoping it is Henry. The phone rings; it is Henry calling from New Haven (Connecticut) on his way to Boston (Massachusetts). Leona tells him everything Waldo Evans (Harold Vermilyea) told her and apologizes for being so mean to him. 'I only did it because I love you,' she cries, 'and I thought you didn't love me!' She assures him that, if he had told her about needing the money, she would have gladly given it to him. Henry looks at the clock outside the phone booth. 11:10 PM. Henry pleads with Leona to get out of bed, go to the window, and scream 'or you've only got three minutes to live', but she is too frightened to move. Henry confesses to everything, but he is cut off by Leona's cries as she sees the shadow of a man coming up the stairs. The man enters her bedroom, and Leona screams just as a train goes by. Her hand can then be seen flopping on the night table. In the final scene, the killer picks up the telephone receiver and says, 'Sorry, wrong number.'
