Emily: At the sports meeting today, which sport are you planning to participate in?
Peter: I'm in the 400 meter relay. I'm really nervous.
Emily: Why so nervous?
Peter: I don't want to do badly and let my team-mates down.
Emily: I think you can do it. No need to worry. You've been practising hard and I'm sure you'1l win if you just focus.
Peter: You're right. I need to be confident. But the relay is a team sport and that requires cooperation.
Emily: That means everyone should work together and try their hardest. You'll win or fail as a team, not just because of one
Peter: Yeah, I know, but I can't help but feel a little nervous anyway.
Emily: Show some courage! I'm sure your team will do fine and win. I believe in you, so you should too.
Peter: I know. We'll try our best. Thanks for your support. It really helps.
Emily: Besides, I'll be there watching and cheering you on.
Monitor: Kate, could you do me a favor?
Kate: What's that? I can help with just about anything.
Monitor: Stay and clean the classroom.
Kate: Why me? Just get Arthur to do it. He won't care. He loves to help.
Monitor: But just now you said you'd help.
Kate: That was before I knew what you wanted. Ask Arthur.
He's a saint. He'll do whatever you ask him to.
Monitor: But Arthur did that last time.
Kate: Yeah, but he still won't say no to you. Besides, you could even ask Casper if you wanted to.
Monitor: But you're the only one who has never done it. I think it's about time you contributed to your class. Everyone has
to take a tum, and it's yours.
Kate: Yeah, OK. You're right, I'll help. But next time just ask one of the boys to help.
Son: Mom, can I play ball for a while outside?
Mother: Your father is in the study working hard. You can't make any noise or you might make him angry. He has some
important work to do and he needs to get it done.
Son: I promise I'll be quiet. Please!
Mother: Behave yourself! Don't make any noise! Have you finished your homework?
Son : Yes. I've finished.
Mother: Then let me see.
Son: Mom, I promise. I won't make any noise at all.
Mother: All right then, just 5 minutes. Make sure you are quiet.
Son: OK. I won't get into trouble.
Mother: Be careful!
Son: Thanks, mom. You're the best.
Lady: You again! Don't push me again, or I'll smack you!
Frank: Don't threaten me. I'll bust your face!
Lady: Look, I told you my daughter isn't interested in you. She doesn't want to see you, so screw off! I'll call the cops if
you don't leave right now!
Frank: I'm not breaking any laws. Mind your own business. Call the cops. and I've done nothing wrong!
Lady: Why can't you just accept the fact that my daughter isn't interested in you? She has someone else, someone nice. If you
don't leave, you'll have to pay for that.
Frank: Someone else? I don't believe it. She said she loves only me! She said I was the only person she could ever love.
Lady: You are living some kind of lie. She hates you and wishes you were dead! You won't leave her alone and she's scared of
you. If I have to solve this problem, I promise you'll wish you had listened to me the first time I told you to leave.
Frank: That's a lot of talk. I'll be back and when I come I expect to see her.
