1 Man Are you hungry? I could make some lunch.
Woman Starving. What have we got?
Man Er … we’ve got some bananas. And a packet of rice. And a tomato. Ooh – and some cheese, but it looks a bit old. How does that sound? Hey! Where are you going?
Woman Back soon!
Narrator When you’re hungry – and you don’t fancy rice with bananas and cheese – there’s always another option.
Woman Two portions of chicken with fries, please. And a side order of garlic bread.
Server Certainly, madam. To eat here?
Woman No, take away.

1 Man There’s a great film on tonight at the Picture House.
Woman Really? What kind of film?
Man It’s a comedy.
Woman I’m really tired. I think I need an evening at home.
Man Oh, come on. I don’t want to go by myself.
Woman Well, ask a friend.
Man But I want to go with you! We hardly every go out. I really think you should make more effort!
Woman I’m sorry – but I’m always so tired. I work hard, you know!
Man I know, but … come on. It’s Friday night!
Woman Oh, I don’t know. Can I think about it?
2 Man Did I tell you what happened to me when I was out with Molly?
Woman No, you didn’t.
Man It was really embarrassing – but it made us laugh afterwards.
Woman Go on, tell me!
Man Well, we were at the cinema. The film was starting when Molly stood up and whispered something about going to buy popcorn. So she went.
Woman And then what happened?
Man Well, a few moments later, she came back and sat down. I thought, “That was quick,” but I didn’t say anything. I was really concentrating on the film.
Woman OK …
Man So I helped myself to some of the popcorn. She was holding a big box of it in her hand. And a woman’s voice said, “Hey! That’s mine!”
Woman Oh no!
Man Yes! I turned around … and it wasn’t Molly! It was another woman who was sitting in her place.
Woman How embarrassing!
Man I know. Then Molly got back and we had to explain to this woman, but she was already upset about the popcorn …
Woman That’s so funny!
3 Man What’s on next?
Woman There’s a talent show starting in five minutes.
Man No thanks! I really don’t like talent shows.
Woman Me neither. They’re so boring, aren’t they?
Man Yes. Terrible. What else is on?
Woman There’s a new sitcom on a bit later.
Man No, sitcoms aren’t my thing. They’re never really funny.
Woman I don’t think you’re right about sitcoms. Some of the American shows are really clever.
Man Clever? You’re joking. They’re all the same … and the laughter isn’t real, it’s all recorded.
Woman No, it isn’t. There’s usually a real audience.
Man I don’t think so. Not for most of the shows.
Woman Yes, there is. I saw a programme about it once …
4 Man Can I help you?
Woman Yes, I want to return this DVD.
Man Have you watched it?
Woman Yes, I have.
Man Well, I’m sorry. You can’t return it.
Woman But there’s a problem with it. It keeps jumping. And some of the scenes don’t play at all.
Man There’s nothing I can do. It’s our policy.
Woman It’s just not good enough. You sold me a DVD which doesn’t work. I don’t care what your policy is! Where’s the manager?
Man She’s in her office. Do you want me to call her?
Woman Yes, I do!
