In a movie "I do, but I don't" starring Denise Richardson I heard a sentence and I seem to have forgotten the word that collocates with 'servant'. The sentence was, more or less the following:

"And don't treat me like I was your ....... servant".
It was neither 'humble', nor 'obedient', it was a word one wouldn't encounter in everyday speech, but when I googled it, it was on the wikipedia. The word contained 3 syllables, for what I remember.
Thank you

    It could be almost anything, nikkieli, including a swear-word. (Indeed, I'd say a swear-word's quite likely.)

    You'll have to get the DVD and listen again;)
