This comes from the show Ugly Betty, season 4, episode 413.

Betty's sister Hilda owns a beauty salon. But it burnt down so she has to move to Betty's.

Betty: You're taking clients here?
Hilda: Yeah, that way I can charge Manhattan prices.
Betty: Whatever you need, just use that hair catchy thingy. Old plumbing.

Could you tell me what she means by "hair catchy thingy"? Does she mean some kind of "strainer"?

    Yes, I'm sure that's what she means - something to catch the hair before it goes down the plughole.

    (Now what do we actually call those things?:eek:)
