All: Hooray! Welcome back, Tony!
Tony: Erm, cheers, thanks.
Magda: How are you feeling?
Tony: Much better, thanks. All well now.
Johnny: Good to hear!
Harry: Carlos will be happy! He doesn’t have to work here any more ...
Tony: Actually ...
Tony: I was wondering, sometimes it’s useful to have an assistant, you know, someone to help out from time to time ...
Tony: So, would you like to stay on for a bit?
Carlos: Just part-time?
Tony: Just part-time, yeah.
Carlos: Well, you know that really I want to open my own restaurant.
Tony: Yeah ... Well, this will give you good experience!
Carlos: I guess so. Why not? Sure!
Tony: Great! Thanks, Carlos!
Olivia: That is the first time I’ve ever heard Tony say “thanks” to anyone!
Harry: So, Fadi, how’s our business coming along?
Johnny: Yeah – are we millionaires yet?
Fadi: Erm ... Well, I’ve got a bit of news for you there ...
Harry: Doesn’t sound good.
Johnny: What’s going on?
Fadi: Well, I’ve had a bit of a problem raising the initial capital ...
Harry: So we can’t start?
Fadi: Well, not exactly ... I mean, I have invested – that is, spent – some of the money already.
Johnny: What on?
Fadi: Publicity, setting up the website, you know – important things!
Harry: But ...?
Fadi: Well – it’s business, isn’t it? If we don’t get more money, we can’t go on ...
Johnny: And in the meantime you’ve spent the money we gave you to invest!
Fadi: You’ve got to speculate to accumulate! Be patient – we’ll still be successful!
Harry: If we don’t, I’ll be joining Carlos working in this café!
