Hi, you've reached Elizabeth Weir. I'm not here at the moment, so please leave your name and number and I'll get back to you. Thank you.

Elizabeth, it's John. Um...I just wanted to, uh, call you and see how you were doing. I thought maybe we could, uh, go out for something to eat one day. Talk about War and Peace or something. Call me back. Thanks.

Hi, you've reached Elizabeth Weir. I'm not here at the moment, so please leave your name and number...

Elizabeth, it's John again. It's been a couple of days, and you haven't returned my call yet so I thought I'd try you again. Um...I've been talking to Rodney still. I guess it's weird for everyone not to see each other every day. The food offer is still standing. Call me back.

Elizabeth, pick up the damn phone. Everyone's said that you haven't returned any of their calls. We're your friends, Elizabeth. And even if you don't want to talk to them, you know you can talk to me, right? Elizabeth, come on! Growl. Just call me back, Elizabeth. Once. Silence. That's all I'm asking.

Hi, you've reached Elizabeth Weir. I'm not here...

Elizabeth, this isn't funny. You're starting to worry me. Just pick up the phone. Do I have to track you down? Half-hearted laugh. I'm willing to wait. Silence.

Hi, you've reached Elizabeth...

Elizabeth, you can't keep avoiding me. Come on, you're giving your military commander a complex here. Forced laugh. And I'm sure that you'd want me to be in top fighting condition. You know, not stuck somewhere fighting my feelings of loneliness and abandonment. Seriously, Elizabeth, call me back.

Hi, you've...

Knock.

Knock.

Knock.

Elizabeth, pick up the phone.

Silence.

Or let me in, at least.

Creak.
