Carlos: Hi, Tony! Could I have a coffee, please?
Tony: OK ...
Carlos: What food have you got on today?
Tony: The usual – I’ve got some sandwiches – you can have tuna, chicken, cheese or ham. I can do some fried eggs, or an omelette. I’ve got some nice sausages, some chicken curry ...
Carlos: Erm, that’s OK, thanks. I’ll just have the coffee.
Tony: Fair enough. Suit yourself.
Olivia: Hi there, Carlos! Come and sit over here!
Carlos: OK. Thanks!
Olivia: You didn’t fancy anything to eat then?
Carlos: No. I don’t want to sound rude, but ... well l... the food here isn’t very good!
Olivia: Go on ... It’s not bad! Just standard British food, that’s all.
Carlos: Yeah. Exactly.
Olivia: Oh, don’t be such a snob! We eat pretty well in Britain!
Johnny: Hi, all! Mind if I join you?
Carlos/Olivia: Hey! Oh hi!
Carlos: No, not at all.
Olivia: Pull up a seat!
Johnny: What’s going on?
Olivia: Carlos was just saying how much he hates British food.
Johnny: Yeah. He’s got a point.
Olivia: Oh, don’t you start as well!
Johnny: There are some good Chinese places in Soho.
Carlos: Yeah – there are some good restaurants in London, but they’re so expensive.
Olivia: If you eat fresh, seasonal, local food in Britain, it’s great.
Carlos: Maybe, yeah – but you can’t always find it.
Johnny: Shhh! Here comes Tony now!
Tony: Here you go, Olivia – that egg sandwich you ordered!
Olivia: Thanks, Tony!
Tony: No problem!
Carlos: See what I mean?
Olivia: OK, OK. Maybe you’ve got a point.
Johnny: Oh no ... Here comes Tony! He must have heard you complaining about his food!
Tony: Erm ... listen, guys ... erm ... I’m not feeling too well ... not good at all ... I think I’ll have to go home. There’s no one else in today, so I’m afraid you’ll all have to go home.
Olivia: Oh no! I’m sorry, Tony – don’t worry.
Carlos: No, don’t worry! I’m a trained chef!!!
Johnny: That’s true – he is!
Carlos: I’ll take over for you! I love cooking!
Olivia: I guess this is your chance, Carlos!
Tony: Er ... Are you sure?
Carlos: Yeah, it’s no problem. I’ve worked in restaurants before – I’ll make sure the café stays open, and then you won’t lose a day’s business!
Tony: Oh ... er ... well ... erm ... yeah ... I guess so. Yeah. I mean, thanks!
Carlos: No problem!
Tony: I’ll just show you where everything is, then you can get on with it!
Sarah: Hi, all!
All: Hi, Sarah ...
Tony: Right then, Carlos, I’ll be off. Hope everything goes OK!
Carlos: I’ll be fine!
Carlos: Hi, Sarah!
Sarah: What are you doing there?
Carlos: I’m the new chef in Tony’s Café!
Sarah: Oh no!
