Patty O'Neill:
If Cynthia came down now and cried over you a little and fussed over you right bit, I bet...
Donald Gresham:
Let's not talk about Cynthia.
Patty O'Neill:
Well, she called me a "professional virgin". That's what I came back to talk about. Not Cynthia, don't worry, only what she said.
Donald Gresham:
It was a rather unfortunate phrase and I was mad...
Patty O'Neill:
May I ask why does Cynthia object to virgins?
Donald Gresham:
Look, nobody in their right mind could seriously object to being called a virgin.
Patty O'Neill:
OK, but it's this "professional" that makes me mad. I'd like to have that explained.
Donald Gresham:
It's not necessary to advertise it. That's really all the phrase means.
Patty O'Neill:
What's wrong with advertising?
Donald Gresham:
[exasperated]
People who advertise are anxious to *sell* something!

Transcript:
and I can't do it standing
out here in the hall.
Why can't you?
All right.
I just came back to ask you
exactly what Cynthia meant
when she called me
a professional virgin.
Shh!
This is no time to be
calling on people.
I know.
I'd have been
back here earlier,
but it took me such a long time
to get rid of my father.
We had the most awful row.
He was livid.
You should have seen him.
I did.
I caught the first show.
Oh, that's a
dreadful-looking eye.
Pop said for me to tell you...
The less I hear about your
father, the better I'll like it.
I've read about police brutality,
but it's never hit me
in the eye before.
You're dribbling all down your robe.
Here, let me fix that.
Never mind. Never mind.
It's okay.
Well, you should have put
some raw steak on it.
If you hadn't invited
Slater to dinner,
there might have been some steak
left for me to put on it.
Look, I'm sorry
my father slugged you,
but, well, he's an old-fashioned
man, and he did his duty.
Oh, that's a ghastly-looking eye.
It's just an old-fashioned shiner
from an old-fashioned father,
and I should cherish it
as such for several days.
Now, it's getting late.
What's on your mind?
Well, don't glare at me like that.
When you look so angry, I can't
possibly discuss why I came.
I'm willing to forego any discussion.
In fact, I'm willing
to write the whole thing off
as a horrible nightmare.
The whole thing?
From beginning to end.
Yes? Who is it?
Cynthia: Darling, have you tried
sulfuric acid in your eye?
Cynthia, will you please,
for the sweet love of heaven,
stop telephoning me?
- But I only want to...
David: Cynthia, you are to hang up at once.
- But, Daddy.
Very well.
If you refuse to obey me...
What did she want?
She was overcome with
concern about my eye.
At this hour?
May I remind you,
that you also came,
in person, at this hour?
You're tired, aren't you?
I've had a hard day.
If Cynthia came down now
and cried over you a little
and fussed over your eye a bit,
