Script Sharon: Hey, Karen, is that you? Karen: Sharon, wow! I can‘t believe it! Yes, it's me. Gosh, it‘s good to see you! Sharon: You, too! What‘s it been? Something like 20 years?!? Karen: Yeah, I can‘t believe we‘re that old already. Sharon: Life sure has treated well. You look great! Karen: Thanks you do too! What‘ve you been doing all this time? I remember you couldn‘t wait to marry Jim and start a family. Sharon: Hah! I never did get married. I was too busy with school and then my job. I don‘t even know what happened to Jim. Karen: So what do you do? Sharon: I have my own advertising agency. Karen: Come on, Sharon! You? Sharon: Really. I majored in marketing in college and afterwards got a job with an advertising agency. I worked my way up, and when I felt I understood the business really well, I left to start my own agency. Karen: Wow, that‘s pretty impressive. No wonder you haven‘t had any time to get married. Sharon: Yeah. So, anyway, what about you? You were the one who was going to travel the world and do your own thing. You didn‘t want to get stuck being a housewife. Karen: Hah! You‘re gonna laugh, but I AM a housewife, and a mother of three. Sharon: Oh, come on, Karen, you‘re not serious, are you? What happened to the travel? Karen: Well, I did travel around Europe for a year with some friends. But then I met Stan, and we got married right away. I helped put him through medical school, and then we had our children. I love being able to focus on my family, and when they leave home, I'm going to start my career—if it's not too late! Sharon: It's never too late Script Cesar: TJ, my man! I heard you won the Pro-Am stake-boarding contest last weekend. TJ: Yeah, Cesar, I did a flip on the half-pipe that really impressed the judges. Cesar: You impress me, TJ. You‘re something else on that board! TJ: Ah, c'mon, stop it, will ya? Cesar: But I've seen you fly on a skateboard. It's amazing. TJ: Yeah, well, things have been goin'good. You'll never believe what the latest is. Cesar: What? TJ: Nike wants me to do a commercial. They've been calling my agent. Cesar: Wow! I don't believe that. TJ: You best believe it, my friend. I'm going to get some big bucks for doing it, too. Cesar: You're going big time now. I can't believe I even know you. TJ: Great, huh? I‘m gonna be on TV! Cesar: Yeah! Pretty soon you‘re not going to have time for someone like me. TJ: No way, Cesar. You know my friends are important. Cesar: Yeah, but now you‘re hitting the big time. Everything‘s gonna change. 1

TJ: You know I‘m just a regular guy. Cesar: No, you‘re not. TJ: Yes, I am. I‘ve got parents and a bratty sister, just like you. I took piano lessons when I was little, and I go to church on Sundays. I like watching cartoons, and my mom makes me take out the trash. And I worry about not having a girlfriend. See? I‘m just like everybody else. Cesar: I don‘t think so. Nobody else I know is doing a Nike commercial. You‘re got it made, TJ. TJ: Yeah, but the problem is my parents. Cesar: What‘s up? TJ: To really make it big , I‘ve got to go on the pro tour ,and the only way I can go pro is to drop out of school ,but they don‘t want me to. They say I‘m ruining my future. But I may not get another chance — two years from now may be too late. Cesar: So what‘re you gonna for? TJ: I‘ve got to go for it. I‘m at the top of my game right now ,and that‘s what counts. Cesar: Yeah, you gotta do what you gotta do. Script Kara: Steve, remember the older couple that I rent my apartment from? Steve: Yeah? Kara: Well, the woman has been coming up to see how I'm doing. At first I was really appreciative, you know, it's nice to feel that people are concerned when you live alone. Steve: Yeah, it is nice. Kara: Now, though, she comes every day… sometimes more than once! She always brings me homemade soup… Steve: Homemade soup! That is so great! I wish someone cooked for me. Kara: Sure, having some home-cooked food is a treat, but she sits and watches me to make sure I eat it! Last time, I had just eaten dinner when she came over and insisted that I finish a whole bowl. She wouldn't leave until I did! Steve: Oh, c'mon, you could have it much worse. Kara: And, every time I go out she leans out the door to ask where I am going. It's like I'm 17 again! Steve: Would you rather have loud neighbors who kept you up all night? Kara: Well, it's not only her. It's the old man, too. He is such a flirt, and I've always thought it was cute. Ya' know, an old man ,80 years old , still flirting. Steve: Uh huh… Kara: So, today when I got home, he came up to me, gave me a hug… Steve: Yeah, so what…? Kara: And then, he kissed me on the cheek…! Steve: Oh no! Well, maybe you remind him of his granddaughter. Kara: Well, yeah, but don't you think it's kind of weird for him to kiss me? Script Rachel: So, Susie, how was the plane ride from London? Susie: Oh, I don‘t know…all I could think about was getting here and going shopping. Rachel: Hmmm. 2

Susie: Rachel, what‘s wrong? Rachel: Susie, I thought you came to see me! Isn‘t that more important than shopping? Susie: Oh c‘mon, Rachel. Shopping is so bonding! Rachel: All right, I‘ll take you to the stores. What are you looking fly? Susie: Well, I want a handbag from Prada, and maybe one of their black leather dresses… Rachel: Oh no… Susie: …a couple of skirts from Donna Karan, you know, the ones that are really fitted, a pair of jeans… Rachel: Whoa! How much money do you have, anyway? Susie: Oh, Rachel, you know I save up to come to New York every year to go shopping. Now that you‘re studying here, I want to go with you. So what are you going to get? Rachel: Are you kidding, Susie? I‘ve got two words for you: ―student budget.‖ I can‘t afford to buy any clothing! Susie: Well, you‘re just a jeans and T-shirt person, aren‘t you? I am going to enjoy myself no matter how much it costs. I‘m on holiday. Look, Rachel, I‘ll buy you something, a new blouse , or skirt, whatever you want. Rachel: Well, I don‘t want anyone to buy me something I can‘t afford myself. Susie: Oh, don‘t worry about that. And, there is no need to thank me. It‘s the least I can do since you‘ll be cooking dinner every night while I‘m here. Rachel: Dinner? What are you talking about? Script Richard: Hello? Irma: Hi, it‘s me. Richard: Oh, hi! How was the job interview? Irma: Well, he hired me. Richard: You got the job? The management job? Oh, Irma: No, I didn‘t say I got the management job. He hired me for a job in customer service, selling hired me for a job in customer service, selling tours to Asia. Richard: Just customer service? But what about the management position? You were perfect for that job. You can supervise people. You understand the business. Irma: I know. I showed him my resume. I told him that I worked in travel management for five years back home, and that I even got a degree in Business Management here in the U.S. Richard: Oh, I can‘t believe that. You‘re perfectly qualified for that management position. Irma: That‘s what I thought. It‘s not fair! Why did I bother going to college here? Richard: Wait, wait a minute. Did he know that you were applying for the management position. Irma: Of course. And you know what he said? Richard: What? Irma: He said that everyone really expects the manager to be someone from the local community. But the person they hired is from New York. And she‘s a woman, too, so it‘s not because I am a woman. So that means the problem is my English. Richard: But your English is fantastic! Irma: But I‘m not a native speaker, and I guess that‘s what they want for the management job. 3

Richard: Well, you know, you spend a little time at the customer service job and then you can work your way up to the management position… Script Amy: I know I have a picture of Luis around here some-where. Oh, here it is. Erika: wow! He‘s so handsome! He looks like a Greek statue. Amy: Yeah, he is very attractive. But I didn‘t think so when I first met him. Erika: You didn‘t? Amy: No. You know what I noticed when I first met him? He has really hairy hands. Erika: What? Amy: Yeah. His hands are just really hairy. Plus, his clothes were way more fashionable than I usually like. He just wasn‘t my type. And on top of all that, he was shorter than me. Erika: So how come you went out with him? Amy: Well, he was just really sweet and funny and I was so comfortable just hanging out with him. And the first time we went out he just swept me away with his personality. Erika: Really, how? Amy: He was just really easy to talk to. Erika: But still, if all those things bothered you, about his hands and all… Amy: well, you know, none of that was important once I got to know him more. His personality and the way we got along just made it clear to me that he is ―the one.‖ Erika: So, when‘s the big day? Script Eddie: Hey, what‘s up with you, Marty? You look kind of bummed out. Marty: You haven‘t heard? Eddie: Heard what? Marty: Kristy and Shawna are moving in with us. Eddie: Yeah, I heard. Simon got transferred to Florida, right? Marty: Yeah, so he and Lily got to go there first and do a whole bunch of stuff. That means that we get stuck with the twin brats. Eddie: Ah, come on, Marty. They aren‘t brats. Marty: Yeah, but you know what it‘s going to mean? Mom and Dad aren‘t going to have any time for us anymore. And it‘s going to get even more crowded here. Just one big happy family! Eddie: Yeah, there‘s a lot of us now, that‘s for sure. I hear we‘re going to have to sleep in the living room so that Kristy and Shawna can have our room. Marty: I wish we were back in our old house—just us, Mom and Dad. Eddie: Yeah, sometimes I do, too. Marty: And I wish Mom and Dad wouldn‘t try to solve everybody‘s problems. Eddie: I don‘t think that will change. You know your mom wants to take care of everybody. She doesn‘t want to say no if anybody needs he. Marty: But nobody ever asks me what I want! Eddie: Kids never get to say what goes on in their house. That‘s the way it is. Marty: Yeah, you‘re right. But now everything in this house is going to be Kristy and Shawna, Kristy and shawna. Or else Grandma. Eddie: Hey, don‘t get mad at your grandma. She‘s in a lot of pain, you know. 4

Marty: I know. I‘m not really mad at her. I‘m mad at Mon and Dad. They used to always have time to help me with my homework, or play games with me, but they‘re always too busy. And now it‘s going to get even worse. Eddie: Hey, maybe I can help you with your homework. Bring it here. Marty: Really? You mean it? I‘m really stuck on this math. Eddie: Sure. While things are kind of tough around here, I‘ll help you out as much as I can. Script Steve: I can‘t believe these people. I can‘t believe what they do. Trish: Calm down, Steve. What are you talking about? Steve: Look at this. I just bought a donut. I‘m so sick of the clerk wrapping each pastry individually, then taping the bags shut, then putting those bags in another bag, folding it down, and then taping that bag shut. I can‘t take it anymore. It‘s crazy and it‘s bad for the environment. Trish: How long have you been living here? Don‘t you know that‘s the way it is? Steve: I just want them to stick ‗em in a napkin for me , so I can eat while I‘m walking to class. Trish: There you go again. Don‘t you know it‘s rude to eat while you walk? Steve: I‘m so tired of this place. I don‘t have time to sit down and eat. People here are too inflexible, and they have too many rules. Trish: Yeah, right, Steve, so you‘re gonna convert everybody here to your way of doing things? Steve: Yeah, there has to be more individual freedom to do whatever you want. Trish: Why don't you just relax and go with the flow? Steve: Go with the flow? The whole system is a waste of my time. The clerks here should learn how to be more efficient, like in the U.S. Trish: What are you talking about? When I was in the U.S., the clerks were really rude. They just ignore you, and seem offended if you want anything. Don't you think it‘s better this way? Steve: Are you kidding? Trish: Well, I kind of like it. It‘s nice to relax and enjoy the moment while your packages are being wrapped. I like all of the traditions, and the care and attention that people give you, and the manners. To me, it‘s a wonderful place to live. Steve: I think you‘re nuts. Trish: You‘re not gonna last long, mate. Script Andy: Hey, Bob. How are ya? Come and see what I‘ve got. Bob: Is that another new computer? Andy: Yeah. Look how fast it is. Bob: Wow! I can‘t believe it. And I thought your other computer was fast! Andy: It is fast, but this one‘s like lightning. Bob: And the picture‘s so clear. Andy: Mmm. Isn‘t it? The color is pretty impressive, too, don‘t you think? Bob: Yeah. You always have the latest, don‘t you? Andy: You bet. This machine is right on the cutting edge of technology. You wouldn‘t believe how much it can do. Apart from e-mail and free Internet service, I can watch TV on it while surfing. With this new desktop program, I can watch TV, e-mail, streamline videos, and scan artwork. And it‘s not that expensive to upgrade, either. Uh, speaking of computers, how‘s yours? 5

Still like it? Bob: Yeah, it‘s fine. Thanks! Andy: I know I gave you a good deal. It was only a year old. Still, are you sure it meets all your needs? Maybe you should think about upgrading. Bob: you know me – the only things tat I need a computer for are e-mail and word processing. Andy: Yeah, but does it give you room to expand? If you want to be able to do more two years from now, will your computer be able to handle it? Bob: Well I don‘t know. But I kind of doubt that I‘ll need a new one anytime soon. Andy: Yeah, but with computers, there‘s always a new model coming out that can do so much more. If you don‘t keep up with technology, you'll get left behind. Bob: well, what‘s wrong with that? Script Doctor: Hi, Julie. How are you? Julie: Her, Dr. Cassidy. I‘m actually fine. It‘s just that I‘ve been a little tired the last few days, and my stomach is kinda upset. Doctor: Well, that doesn‘t surprise me. I have some news that you might find exciting. You‘re pregnant. Julie: No way! Doctor: Yes, you‘re going to have a baby. Julie: Are you kidding me? Ah, I need a cigarette. Doctor: That‘s the last thing you need. You need to stop smoking, and immediately. Julie: But I can‘t stop smoking. Doctor: For your baby‘s health, Julie, I‘m afraid you have to. Julie: But smoking is the only way I can relax! It helps me when I‘m stressed out. Doctor: Now, there are a number of things that are extremely important for pregnant mothers, and not smoking is only one of them. Another is to stop drinking alcohol. Do you drink? Julie: Well, I have a glass of wine with dinner, but I‘m not an alcoholic. And I thought a little bit was supposed to be good for you anyway. Doctor: If you drink while you‘re pregnant, your child could have birth defects. I cannot emphasize enough, Julie, the importance of quitting. Julie: Okay, then. What else is there? Doctor: Well, coffee. Julie: Do I have to give up everything I enjoy? I need coffee to wake me up in the morning. Doctor: I‘m afraid, Julie, you‘ll have to stop drinking that, too. Caffeine affects the baby‘s heart rate. And, it‘s also important to get regular exercise. Julie: You‘re kidding! I have to quit smoking, stop drinking alcohol and coffee, and on top of all that, I have to start exercising? Boy, it is amazing that anybody ever gets pregnant. Doctor: I really hope you‘ll take this seriously, Julie. Script Sue: Randy, what‘s going on in this picture? It looks like you have blood all over your shirt. Randy: No, that‘s not blood. It‘s ketchup. Sue: Ketchup? What happened? Randy: This happened when Tim and I were traveling around Asia. We were in Bangkok. 6
