Series Two, Episode Ten: A Date

Carlos: I can’t believe Sarah said ‘yes’!

Fadi: Well done mate!

Johnny: So where are you going to take her?

Carlos: Oh..I don’t know...we didn’t decide where to go...

Fadi: Take her out for dinner, somewhere nice...

Carlos: Yeah, that’s a good idea...

Johnny: I know a great Chinese place...

Carlos: Yes, but she always eats Chinese food – perhaps she’d like a change, try something different...?

Fadi: All the restaurants Johnny goes to are really expensive! Take your credit card if you go there!

Johnny: I like to spend my money well!

Carlos: I thought I could cook something for her...I want to be a chef, you know.

Johnny/Fadi: Yes, we know...

Fadi: Don’t invite her to your house on a first date, though.

Carlos: No? Why not?

Fadi: It looks too pushy, too forward.

Carlos: Oh, I see...

Johnny: Yeah...take it slowly!

Carlos: Oh, ok. She’s coming to the café soon, so we’ll talk about it then...

(door)

Olivia: Hello guys!

Harry: Alright!?

Fadi: Yeah, I’m fine mate. You?

Harry: Hmm...not so great...

Fadi: What’s up?

Harry: Bindyu’s really angry with me.

Johnny: Why’s that?

Harry: She thinks I’m spending too much time with Olivia.

Olivia: But it’s work! I told Bindyu that Harry’s helping me to fix my webpages.

Fadi (laughing): Is she jealous?

Harry: Shhhh! Be quiet! Here she is now!

(door)

Harry: Hi!

Bindyu: Hello Harry! Hi all!

All: Hello!

Bindyu (coldly): Hello Olivia.

Olivia: Hello.

Bindyu: Did Harry help you to fix your website?

Olivia: Well, not quite. He still needs to do some more work.

Bindyu: Hmmppph.

Olivia: Listen, I’ve got an idea – why don’t you both come to my flat this evening? Harry can do some work for me, and I’ll make dinner for everyone.

Harry: Ok! What do you think Bindyu?

Bindyu: Well, ok, I suppose so...

Olivia: Erm, there is just one problem – I have to look after my nephew Joe this evening. He’s very, erm, energetic....

Bindyu (happier): Oh...that’s ok...I love children!

Olivia: Great! Well, I’ll see you all this evening!

Bindyu: We’ll come about seven o’clock! Come on Harry, we have to go now...

Harry: Er, ok, yeah...bye everyone!

All: Bye!

(door closing)

Fadi: So Olivia, you’re spending a lot of time with Harry!

Olivia: Oh shut up you! Are you jealous as well?

Fadi: Me? No! No way!

Olivia: Good. You’ve got lots of girlfriends, haven’t you?

Fadi: Me? Oh yeah. Hundreds!

(door)

Carlos: It’s Sarah...!

Sarah: Hello all!

Carlos: Hi there!

Sarah: Hi Carlos!

Carlos: Hey!

Sarah: Listen, I’ve only got a minute, I can’t stay…

Carlos: Er, ok...

Sarah: I just wanted to say, I’ve got an invitation to a new art gallery opening this evening.

Carlos: Great.

Sarah: Would you like to come with me?

Carlos: Erm, er, yeah! Sure!

Sarah: Great! I’ll meet you here at six!

Carlos: Ok...see you later then. Bye!

Sarah: See you later! Bye!

(door closing)

Fadi: Hey! That’s your date!

Johnny: Now you don’t have to worry about where to take her!

Carlos: But...but...I am worried! I don’t know anything about art! What will I say?

Fadi/Johnny (laughing): You’re going to find out!!
