Quotes:

(1) Frederic Mullally, The Penthouse Sexicon (1968): 'Telephone operator who handles emergency calls on the COD exchange.'

(2) Would-be actress-model and part-time prostitute Bree Daniels (Jane Fonda), who wants to quit therapy, and her therapist (Vivian Nathan) in Klute (1971):
-- Bree: ' I've been coming here all this time and I've been paying you all this money and why do I still want to trick? '
-- Therapist: ' What's the difference between going out on a call as a model or an actress or as a call-girl? (...) You're successful as a call-girl; you're not successful as an actress.'
