Act. I., Sc. 5: The call

Charlie: The desk clerk said that he had a phone call while he was paying his bill, and got really angry at whoever was on the other end. 

Chan: Did the clerk remember anything specific?

Charlie: I asked him that. He said he heard Stan say something like “Let me talk to her! I need to talk to her.”

Pedro: The clerk couldn’t remember a name?

Charlie: No, he couldn’t. All he could tell me was that Stan asked for the quickest way to the highway. Then he drove off.

Pedro: This makes no sense. Why would he take off like that, without calling you?
