questions from <Friends> 1.If I let go of my hair, my head will fall down. why is "head",not "hair"? 2.So that hysterical phone call I got from a woman at sobbing 3:00 AM. Why is this word"sobbing" in front of 3:00AM?

It is possible that the second sentence is supposed to say, "at sodding 3:00 am". Sodding is a UK slang similar to "bloody" used for emphasis. It is very impolite, and may be considered a curse word or a still-rude substitute for a curse word.

Chris is right - neither sentence is good English. Your question is good: "sobbing" should not be in front of 3AM. But even if you fix that, the sentence is still not good.

This sentences are unnatural. They appear to be bad translations from another language.
