After much searching through the piles of clothes and costumes scattered around Hope's house, Hope dialed the cellphone number on the house phone and Hallelujah, the cellabait cellabrations could begin when the weak but distinctive musical sound of Hope's cellphone belting out "I'm just a girl who cayn't say no" rang out joyously amid the heaps of lace and satin!
