Fadi: OK,OK... Happy New Year to you too, then!

Fadi /Johnny: Hi!
Magda: Happy New Year!
Fadi: Oh, please!
Magda: I’m only trying to be friendly...
Fadi: Yeah, sure, sorry... Can we think about something else now please?
Magda: Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?
Johnny: New Year’s what?
Magda: New Year’s resolutions. Olivia told me about it - at the beginning of the year, you should decide to do something, and do it all year.
Johnny: What kind of thing?
Fadi: Something like stop smoking, or go to the gym every day, or study more...
All: Hi Olivia! Hey! Hello!
Olivia: Hmmph. Tony – could I have a large coffee please? Make it extra strong!
Fadi: Looks like someone’s having a bad day!
Olivia: Oh shut up Fadi!
Magda: What’s up, Olivia?
Olivia: My website isn’t working properly. I need to fix it.
Fadi: Here’s the right man to help you!
Harry: Hello there! Are you talking about me?
Olivia: I’ve got problems with my website again...
Harry: I told you I should have set it up the first time! You should have asked me!
Olivia: OK, OK... you were right...
Harry: So what’s the problem?
Olivia: The online sales page doesn’t work. People can’t buy my shoes!
Harry: I’m sure I can help fix it.
Olivia: Go on then. Come over to my flat tonight, and we’ll have a look.
Bindyu: Oh, sorry Olivia. I’m not sure he can come to your flat tonight.
Harry: Yeah, I can. I’m not busy tonight.
Bindyu: I thought we were going to the cinema?
Harry: Were we? Sorry, I didn’t know. I’d like to help Olivia, if I can...
Olivia: Oh, listen Harry... don’t worry if you can’t come and help.
Harry: No. I’ll come. I love websites – you know!
Johnny: Here’s another one of our friends... Thank goodness for that...
