The 911 call in full:
Dispatcher: San Francisco Police Department 74.
Paul: Um, I think I accidentally called. Who is this?
Dispatcher: This is the San Francisco Police Department, do you need help?
Paul: Oh well, there’s a gentleman standing here waiting for my wife to come back, Nancy Pelosi. He’s just waiting for her to come back, but she won’t be here for a day, so I guess he’ll just have to wait.
Dispatcher: Okay, do you need police, fire, or medical assistance for anything?
Paulus: I don’t think so. I do not think so. Are the Capitol Police in the area, do you know? Usually they are here in the house to protect my wife.
Dispatcher: No, this is the San Francisco Police Department.
Paul: I know. I understand. Okay, what do you think?
David DePape: I think everything is good.
Paul: He thinks everything is fine, but I have a problem. He thinks everything is fine.
Sender: Okay. Call us back if you change your mind.
Paul: No, no. This gentleman just entered the house and wants to wait here until my wife comes home… (inaudible)

Paul: The name is David.
Dispatcher: Okay, and who’s David?
Paul: I don’t know.

Paul: Yeah, he says he’s a friend.
Dispatcher: But you don’t know who he is?
