Verna: There are a lot of good shows on television these days!

Lena: Yeah, I know! Did you see the show “Doctors” last night?

Verna: Of course I saw “Doctors”! I always watch “Doctors” on Thursday night. I love that show!

Lena: Me, too.

Verna: But my favourite show is “Beautiful Neighbours”.

Lena: On Sunday nights?

Verna: Yeah. That’s a great show.

Lena: I like that show, too. But my favourite show is “We’re Lost!”, on Wednesday nights.

Verna: Oh, yeah, I love that show, too.  You know, I watch television too much! Three shows every week! That’s bad!

Lena: Oh, don’t worry about it, Verna! Television is good entertainment! Just enjoy it!

Everyone: Hi guys ... Hi everyone ... Hey, how’s it going?

Verna: Did you have a good game?

Charlie: We had a great game! Ted won — he plays really well!

Ted: Charlie plays well, too! I won this time, but Charlie played a great game!

Charlie: Thanks, Ted.

Jay: Well really, you both won, because you enjoyed the game.

Charlie: That’s right, Jay.

Charlie: Hey, Ted — Lena’s alone over there. Go talk to her!

Ted: Mmmmm...

Charlie: Go! Go! Go talk to her!

Ted: Okay, okay!

Ted: I really like doing exercises.

Lena: I enjoy exercising, too. I do exercises every day.

Ted: Me, too.  Uh, Lena ... do you want to go see that new movie with me? You know, that movie called “Die Fighting”?

Lena: Oh, no, Ted, I don’t like that kind of movie. I want to see that other new movie ... you know ... the movie called “Funny Love”.

Ted: Oh. Hmm. I don’t want to see that movie. But I’d like to do something with you. We always exercise together. Let’s do something else!

Lena: Okay, Ted.

Ted: Would you like to meet me at the Sports Bar for a drink tonight?

Lena: Sure!

Ted: Eight o’clock?

Lena: Great! I’ll see you there!
