OFF CAMERA: [00:00:33] This is very nice to see you again. How are you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:00:37] OK.

OFF CAMERA: [00:00:38] Can you tell me about why you came to the emergency room.

MRS. WARREN: [00:00:44] The car man on the television.

OFF CAMERA: [00:00:48] I don’t understand.

MRS. WARREN: [00:00:51] He told me to.

OFF CAMERA: [00:00:53] Told you to what.

MRS. WARREN: [00:00:57] Hurry on down.

OFF CAMERA: [00:01:00] The car man, did you mean the car salesman on television.

MRS. WARREN: [00:01:04] Yes.

OFF CAMERA: [00:01:05] And what did he tell you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:01:09] Hurry on down.

OFF CAMERA: [00:01:12] And what did that mean to you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:01:16] For me to come to the emergency.

OFF CAMERA: [00:01:20] For all people are just you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:01:25] Just me.

OFF CAMERA: [00:01:27] So the man on the television had a message that was meant just for you. Is anyone else on television delivered a message that was pacifically for you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:01:44] To buy pizza for you specifically to buy pizza.

OFF CAMERA: [00:01:51] Do you think it’s possible that could be a message for all people not just you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:01:58] I don’t know.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:00] Was the pizza message also on the television.

MRS. WARREN: [00:02:06] On a billboard.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:08] Billboard.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:10] Well other people see that billboard too. So do you think that message could be for everyone and you just felt like it was especially for you.

MRS. WARREN: [00:02:24] I don’t know.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:26] Who brought you here.

MRS. WARREN: [00:02:28] My mother.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:30] Did she say why.

MRS. WARREN: [00:02:33] She thinks I’m sick.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:37] Your papers hear from your mother say you were crossing the street and you just suddenly stopped in the middle of the street and just stood there.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:45] Even though traffic started moving.

MRS. WARREN: [00:02:50] The signs said to.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:52] The sign said to what.

MRS. WARREN: [00:02:57] Don’t, don’t walk.

OFF CAMERA: [00:02:59] So you stop in the middle of the street.
