I never should have put it in my purse. I’m sure a pickpocket took it. Serge: Calm down. Maybe you just misplaced it. Let’s turn out all of your pockets and search for it before we panic. Nina: I know it’s gone. I know it! Flag down the police. We have to file a police report. Serge: If your passport has been stolen, we need to find the U.S. embassy. Nina: We’re supposed to continue on to the next country on our tour tomorrow. We’re going to get left behind! Serge: Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. If we need to find a U.S. embassy and apply for a temporary passport, we’ll do that. Nina: It’s Saturday! We won’t get any help at the embassy until Monday. We’ll be stuck here. Serge: It’ll take as long as it takes. Now, let’s search through all of your belongings before we do anything else. Nina: I just thought of something. Serge: What? Nina: I think I may have left it in the hotel room. Serge: You think you may have left it in the hotel room. Nina: Isn’t that good news? All that worry for nothing. Serge: Let’s not count our chickens. You might have another inspiration. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
