756: Would it be possible to run me an ambulance over here?

Dispatcher: Suuure. And '56, they're gonna ask us so I'm askin' you--is this guy awake and breathing and is it on the sixth floor?

756: It's a female, she's on the first floor, she's beat-up pretty good, yeah. She's got swollen eyes, she can't see, she needs an ambulance.

Unidentified Caller: Yo, Adrian.

Dispatcher: Ten-four. Battery in progress, 69-- Winchester, the mother who tried to pick up her missing daughter is now fighting with the missing daughter out in front. 747?

747: Yep.

Dispatcher: 747, if you would be kind enough, ride on that battery in progress, 69-- Winchester, mom and the daughter beating each other up. 842?

842: 842.

Dispatcher: '42, I know it's hard to believe, but somebody's sellin' drugs. Four-five and LaCrosse on the corner.

842: Four-five and LaCrosse you say?

Dispatcher: Yeah, hard to believe. 747? 747?

747: '47.

Dispatcher: '47, it's getting better and better. It's now gone from a battery in progress to a sexual assault report on that Winchester job. The neighbor's sayin' that the little girl was raped by the stepfather and the mom is tryin' to take her away.

747: Ten-four.

Dispatcher: 843?

843: Yes sir.

Dispatcher: Do me a favor before you go home today--throw some tickets on the cars. 3700 West 63rd Place, pickup truck parked in the alley, and this happens every night!
