Series Two, Episode Twelve: Something in Common

Olivia: Hi Sarah!

Sarah: Hi!

Magda: How are you?

Sarah: Oh, not bad, I suppose…

Bindyu: What’s up?

Sarah: Nothing really...just that...well, I hope Carlos isn’t coming in today...

Olivia: Why not?

Sarah: Well, he took me out on a date last night.

Magda: Great!

Bindyu: That’s the second time you’ve been out together, isn’t it?

Sarah: Yes – and it’ll be the last!

Olivia: Oh no! What happened?

Sarah: Well, he asked me to go out with him, but didn’t tell me where we were going...

Magda: Ooh...a surprise – how great!

Sarah: No – it wasn’t great!

Olivia: Where did he take you?

Sarah: To a football match!!!

Magda: Oh. I didn’t know you liked football...

Sarah: I don’t! I hate it!

Olivia: Who was playing?

Sarah: I don’t know...one team in red, the other team in blue...it was so boring!

Olivia: Why did he take you there?

Sarah: I don’t know – the stupid thing is, he doesn’t like football either!

(door)

Olivia: I think I know why he took you...hello Fadi! Hello Johnny!

Fadi/Johnny: Hi all!

Olivia: Can I ask you two a question?

Fadi: Sure...

Olivia: Was it your idea for Carlos to take Sarah to a football match?

Fadi: Erm, er...

Johnny: It was Fadi’s idea...

Fadi: No it wasn’t! It was your idea!

Olivia: Ok, ok, enough.

Fadi: So, Sarah – did you have a good time?

Sarah: Hmmmphhh.

Johnny: I think that means no.

Sarah: It was awful.

Fadi: Poor Carlos.

Johnny: Yeah – he’s crazy about you!

Magda: I think he’s so sweet.

Bindyu: Yeah, he is. You should try going out with him again...

Sarah: No way.

Magda: Go on! Give him another chance!

Sarah: I don’t know...I’m not sure...

(door)

Bindyu: Oh...here he is now!

Carlos: Hello everyone!

All: Hi Carlos!

Carlos: How are you all today?

All: Great! Fine! Not bad...

Olivia: So – I hear you and Sarah went out again last night?

Carlos: Oh, erm, yeah...I don’t want to talk about it...

Johnny: Sorry – perhaps our great idea wasn’t so great after all...

Carlos: No. It wasn’t.

Olivia: Never mind – ask her out again.

Carlos: No way.

Olivia: Ok. I’ll do it for you then!

Carlos: No!

Olivia: Yes!

Carlos (to himself): Oh no...

Olivia: Hey, Sarah – I’ve just seen there’s a great new film coming out this weekend...

Sarah: Oh yeah? Sounds good – I love cinema. Why don’t we go together?

Olivia: Ok...oh! No...I’ve just realised – I can’t go to the cinema this weekend. I have to look after Joe...

Bindyu: I’d love to come, but I’m helping Olivia with Joe...

Johnny: I’m working all weekend...as usual!

Fadi: Yeah – I’d go, but I’m playing football with Harry.

Carlos: I’m not doing anything. I love cinema.

Sarah: I didn’t know you liked cinema! You never told me...

Olivia: Excellent! Carlos can go with you! You have something in common.

Sarah: Oh well...erm...ok then...

Carlos: Great – I’m looking forward to it!

All: (laughter)

Olivia: Fadi – are you really playing football with Harry this weekend?

Fadi: Yeah...only on Saturday afternoon though...

Olivia: So you’re free on Saturday night?

Fadi: Erm, yeah...

Olivia: You’re not going out with one of your girlfriends?

Fadi: Erm, no...

Olivia: Well, Bindyu will look after Joe on Saturday night.

Fadi: So?

Olivia: So I’m not doing anything on Saturday night...

Fadi: Oh...

Olivia (sighs): Look – I mean – why don’t we go out together?

Fadi: Us? Me and you?

Olivia: Yes.

Fadi: Erm...er...ok... yeah! Great! Let’s go out for something to eat!!!

Olivia: Finally! I thought you’d never ask!!!

All: (laughter)
