Dialogue - Part two

Max and Sarah arrive back from work

Max: What a day! The traffic was worse than ever.

Edith: Sit down, both of you. Do you want juice?

Sarah: Oh, thank you, Edith. I'm worn out.

Daniel: Why, have you had a busy day?

Sarah: Yes, I've been shopping with Annick. She asked me to help her choose her wedding dress.

Edith: Did you have any luck?

Sarah: Yes, finally. You should see her, Daniel. She looks gorgeous.

Daniel: Oh…good. I…I've got to go out. See you later.

Dialogue - Part three

Edith, Max and Sarah in the kitchen…

Sarah: What did I say?

Edith: Listen, there's something you should know.

Max: What's the matter? Mom are you all right?

Edith: Yes, I'm fine, dear. It's Daniel - he says he's having doubts about Annick.

Max: What! What does he mean?

Edith: He's seen Katy again.

Max: Katy? I thought she was married to somebody else. Anyway, it's too late to cancel the wedding now.

Sarah: Oh, but Max, if Daniel's still in love with Katy….

Max: I don't care who he's in love with, the wedding is going ahead.
