Man: Hey! Nice pants!

Man: Of course I can.
Woman: How can you see my pants?
Man: They’re on your legs!
Woman: Ha. You haven’t been to America recently, have you?
Man: Oh I, er, have actually. I've just got back from LA! That’s 'Los Angeles' by the way ...
Woman: I know.
Man: Yeah, I picked up some of the American words, and now I forget which ones to use! So confusing!
Woman: We call these 'trousers' in Britain.
Man: Of course we do ... you know there are so many things though. It's like a completely different language sometimes!
Woman: Would you like a crisp?
Man: Crisps? In the States, they’re 'chips'!
Woman: Oh. So if I want to order our chips in America, what do I ask for?
Man: French fries!
Woman: I see.
Man: And you know what that is, don’t you?

Woman: Oh really?
Man: You know in the States, you don’t go to watch a film ...

Woman: You walk on the 'sidewalk'!
Man: You got it!
Woman: I’ve watched a lot of films ... oops ... movies!
