Woman: Ma'am?

Milton: I'm a sir! My name is Milton Fludgecow! I've been a valued customer of your freaking cable company for over twelve and a half years and this cable box is talking like it's a devil! It's spitting and frothing and sparking and chanting all kinds of demonic things!

Cable Box: (demonic voice) I hate you, you old geezer!

Milton: Listen to that! What are you-

Woman: Sir?

Milton: What?!

Woman: Sir, are you sure it's not your TV or your VCR?

Milton: GAH!

Cable Box: You should've bought HBO and Cinemax, you cheap schmuck! (demonic laughter)

Milton: Did you hear that?!

Woman: Yes, sir! Um...

Milton: Is this your idea of a big cruel hoax at the cable company? Are you trying to scare elderly people into buying premium services? Is that what-?

(cable box makes more demonic sounds)

Woman: No, sir!

Milton: Well, what are you people doing?!

Woman: I can send out a service technician out by Friday...

Milton: By Friday?! I might be dead!

Cable Box: (laughs demonically) I'm gonna catch on fire and burn your house down! (laughs)

Milton: Oh! Listen to this thing! I-oh, my heart is starting to beat fast! I might be having a heart attack!

Woman: Sir! Take a broom handle and try to unplug it!

Milton: (sighs nervously) Hold on a sec, let me try that. Hang on! I'm getting a broomstick!

(Milton grabs broomstick in background)

Milton: I got...I got a broomstick. I'm approaching the cable and-!

Cable Box: I warned you! I told you to stay away!

(cable box electrocutes Milton)

Milton: (screaming in pain)

Woman: Sir?

Cable Box: (laughing demonically)

Woman: Sir? Sir, are you okay? Sir?

(Milton collapses)

Woman: Can you hear me, sir?
