In “A Stranger in My House”, Debra Winger is forced to let Tom Hanks into her home because of a misunderstanding with a sandal. (That morning Hanks sold her a single sandal unwittingly and now comes to deliver the other one.) While at the house, he wants to urinate and, too shy to ask, looks for the toilet without success all over the house. Tense moments of pathos occur during which Hanks writhes around in agony because of the cramps. Finally he drops this anthological line: “Where the hell is the toilet?!” What he ignores is that in the whole house there is not a single toilet. In fact, there is not a single toilet throughout the neighborhood and Hanks is forced to run to Kansas City.
