Liz tells her old friend Barbara that she believes her ex-husband is stalking her. She plans to leave town for awhile and stay at a cabin in the mountains. Barbara invites herself along and when it seems that Dale has followed them to the cabin, Barbara discovers she doesn't know Liz as well as she thought. Written by

When Liz and Barbara are in the cabin and the electric power goes out, Barbara picks up the handset of the cordless phone and notices it doesn't work. Liz says to Barbara that it's because her ex-husband cut the lines -most likely referring to the telephone line.
In fact, because this is a cordless phone, the base station of the handset which we earlier see in the kitchen of the cabin needs electric power to operate the telephone portion and send/receive the handset which Barbara is holding. So even if Liz's ex-husband cut only the electric power to the cabin (and therefore cutting power to the cordless base station), this cordless phone wouldn't operate anyway. See more
