Series Two, Episode Nine: New Year’s Resolutions

Johnny: Happy New Year!

Fadi: Stop, please! Enough New Year!

Johnny: It’s the first time I’ve seen you this year! You’re supposed to say ‘Happy New Year!’

Fadi: Ok, ok...happy new year to you too, then!

Johnny: It will be Chinese New Year soon – then we can do it all again!

Fadi: Fine, ok, let’s wait until then, though, eh?

(door)

Magda: Hello eveyone!

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 everyday, or study more...

(door)

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!

Fadi (sarcastically): Sorry!

Magda: What’s up Olivia?

Olivia: My website isn’t working properly. I need to fix it.

(door)

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: 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...

Bindyu: Hmmphh.

Olivia: Oh listen Harry...don’t worry if you can’t come and help.

Harry: No. I’ll come. I love websites – you know!

(door)

Johnny: Here’s another one of our friends...thank goodness for that...

All: Hello Carlos!

Carlos: Hello there!

Magda: We were talking about new year’s resolutions. What’s yours?

Carlos: New year’s what?

Magda (sighing): New year’s resolution - at the beginning of the year, you should decide to do something, and do it all year.

Carlos: Oh, I see...well I want to be a chef...

Fadi: We know that, it’s not new.

Johnny: It has to be something new!

Magda: Yes – something you want to do this year!

Carlos: Oh..ok...I see, well...let me think...something I want to do this year...I know, I want to ask Sarah out on a date!

All: Wow!

(door)

Magda: Oh...well...it looks like you have a chance right now, Carlos!

Sarah: Hello everyone! Were you talking about me?

Carlos: Well, no, erm yes, I mean...

Magda (whispering): Go on, Carlos!

Fadi: Carlos has got a question to ask you...

Sarah: Oh yes?

Carlos: Oh, yes, erm...well...I was wondering if...erm...

Sarah: If?

Carlos: Yes, if you’d like to...erm...I don’t know...perhaps..erm...go out some time?

Sarah: Go out with you?

Carlos: Well, yeah, I mean, if you want to...

Sarah: Oh well...erm...what I think is...
