Jeffrey sees a skeleton playing drums. JT wonders what the phone on the wall is and how to use it. Jeffrey and JT wonder why the guy keeps talking about an answering machine. They speculate it is a machine from a long time ago to leave a message on.

JT says the guy is choking himself because he can't figure out the answering machine and how to use it. He then sees him getting made and "getting his ass kicked" by some other guys.

Jeffrey tells Annie to just pick up her iPhone and call the guy. JT says maybe he doesn't have a phone and that is why he keeps trying to call her on a pay phone.

Jeffrey is amazed when the guy tries to contact Annie telepathically. They both see the guy get shot by Annie on the beach and Jeffrey says Annie used and abused the guy.


Lyrics:

Annie, don't run away

Where I can't find you, the game has gone too far

Talking, a lot of talk

Playing telephone, twenty city blocks

Annie, they have the dossier

The investigation's already underway

And I tried Justine, she said to give you a ring

And I try to sleep but all I can hear's the beep

Answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine

Just your answering, answering machine

(Won't you come and find me?)

Answering, answering machine

(Annie, won't you come and find me?)

Hey man, this is Ric

Uh, Callie just called me and she said that she saw Annie acting in a dirty movie

Highway Madonna, evasion is her trade

There was no other, now a shadow at her place

With the brush you left, I comb the alleyways

I don't miss a beat, the tableau stays in place

Annie, I was closing in

But I smeared the number walking in the rain

The girl down the hall, she said to give you a call

And I try to sleep but all I can hear's the beep

From your answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine

Just your answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine (Won't you come and find me?)

Answering, answering machine (Annie, won't you come and find me?)

Just your answering, answering machine (Won't you come and find me?)

Answering, answering machine (Annie, won't you come and find me?)

If you have any information leading to the whereabouts of Annie

Don't hesitate to call 976-LUV-LORN

That's 976-LUV-LORN

LUV with a "U", thank you
