Carlos: Listen, Sarah, I just don’t get what the problem is! I’m only helping out here in the café. It’ll only be for a bit, Tony’ll be back next week.
Sarah: I just thought you wanted more than to make sandwiches in a little café.
Carlos: It’s quite a nice café!
Sarah: Well, yeah, I know it is. I mean, it’s a good place for us all to meet up and hang out, but, well, you know ... I thought you wanted to own a proper restaurant.
Carlos: I do!
Sarah: And when’s that going to happen?
Carlos: I ... I don’t really know ... when I’ve got enough money.
Sarah: And when will that be?
Carlos: Don’t really know ... soon – I hope!
Sarah: Well, let me know when it happens!
Carlos: Sarah – I’m not sure what you mean.
Sarah: I just, I just think perhaps we should take it easy for a bit, maybe stop seeing each other for a while.
Carlos: Oh. Well ... OK ... I guess ... Whatever.
Sarah: Bye now ... I’ll see you around, OK?
Fadi: Hi, Carlos!
Carlos: Hello there.
Fadi: What’s up, mate?
Carlos: Oh ... Nothing.
Fadi: Don’t believe you. Go on!
Carlos: I’m just a bit fed up of working here.
Fadi: Well, Tony’s back next week, isn’t he?
Carlos: Yeah. That’s not all.
Fadi: What else?
Carlos: Sarah doesn’t want to go out with me any more.
Fadi: Oh. Sorry to hear that ... Well, never mind. Perhaps you’ll make it up.
Carlos: Yeah. Maybe. Hope so.
Fadi: Olivia! Hi! Just the girl I wanted to see!
Olivia: Why’s that?
Fadi: Well, a couple of reasons ...
Olivia: Go on.
Fadi: First, you know the business me and Harry and Johnny are starting?
Olivia: “FindLondon”? The tourist help service?
Fadi: Yeah, that’s it. Well, we need some more capital. I wondered if you wanted to be in on it.
Olivia: Thanks, but no thanks! Like I already said, Fadi, I’ve got enough to do running my own business!
Fadi: OK, fair enough.
Olivia: What was the other thing?
Fadi: Oh, yeah. I was wondering if you wanted to come out on Friday night? Go see a movie, go for a drink maybe ...
Olivia: Oh ... Thanks, Fadi, but it’ll have to be a no on that one too – I’m looking after Joe on Friday.
Fadi: Joe, your nephew? Oh. He’s always around, isn’t he?
Olivia: Family is important, Fadi!
Fadi: You sound like my dad.
Fadi: Listen, you do want us to carry on seeing each other, don’t you?
Olivia: Yeah ... But nothing serious, eh? Let’s just keep it casual.
Fadi: OK ... Hey, Carlos! I think that’s two of us!
