Series Two, Episode Twelve: Something in Common
Olivia: Hi Sarah!
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.
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!
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?
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?
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...
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 (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!
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.
Olivia: So I’m not doing anything on Saturday night...
Olivia (sighs): Look – I mean – why don’t we go out together?
Fadi: Us? Me and you?
Fadi: Erm...er...ok... yeah! Great! Let’s go out for something to eat!!!
Olivia: Finally! I thought you’d never ask!!!
