    She's a ho.

    DR. MARCIA FIELDSTONE (V.O.)
    Shouldn't your father be the
    judge of whether she's right
    or wrong?

    ON JONAH

    sneaking glances out at Sam and Victoria as he talks.
    Victoria puts her arms around Sam's waist and clasps
    them behind him.

    JONAH
    Please, please don't make me
    sick. He's not sane enough to
    judge anything. She's a ho.

    What is a "ho"? Thanks!
