Her apartment becomes a revolving door for men. So much so, that some men start to leave money on her bedside table. They have all mistaken her for a prostitute. When Theresa sees the money, she can’t help but laugh. She previously had fantasies of being a hooker. Sadly at the end of the movie, she pays the ultimate price with her final anonymous hook-up.
