1,005 - Complimenting Your Host

June 6th, 2014

Episode 92 of 489 episodes

Did I mention that I think you’re a wonderful cook, and that you look beautiful today? You should definitely listen to this episode about giving compliments. Slow Dialog: 1:26 Explanation: 3:25 Fast Dialog: 15:27 Anton: Jenny, you’ve outdone yourself. This is quite a spread. Jenny: Thank you. I’m glad you approve. Anton: Approve? I think everything on this table looks exquisite and mouthwatering. Jenny: That’s nice of you to say. I wanted everything to be perfect. Anton: You’ve surpassed all expectations. If this food tastes even half as good as it looks, you’ll wow every guest. Jenny: If you don’t stop complimenting me, I won’t be able to stop blushing. Anton: I’m only just beginning, because you’re a vision in that dress. Jenny: Oh, it’s nothing special. Anton: Of course it’s special, but you could wear a sack and look ravishing. Jenny: Okay, now I know you’re buttering me up. What gives? Anton: Nothing, nothing at all. You’re so suspicious. I’m just giving you my candid opinion. Jenny: If you say so. Where’s the camera you borrowed from me for your trip? Did you bring it? Anton: Ah, the camera. Did I mention how much I admire that necklace you’re wearing? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
