I think she was talking to a friend who got the number of the restaurant from Agnes - somehow. That's always been my impression. A friend wanted to reach her for some important reason - maybe to gush about some positive milestone in her life (I think it was a female friend) and then the conversation quickly became full of happy humor.
I never really thought about it until now, because I didn't have the capacity for deep, thoughtful analysis back then.
I don't think it was someone Maddie knew. My guess is that she was sitting at the bar waiting for her drink when the bartender or another patron got a phone call. Whoever got the call said, "Guess who's sitting right here at the bar. Maddie Hayes." And asked Maddie to speak to the person on the other end. I got the impression that she was speaking to a male, judging from her flirtatious body language...throwing her head back, hand on her chest, etc.
