1,039 - Taking a Test Drive

October 3rd, 2014

Episode 143 of 489 episodes

Slow down or you’ll miss this great episode about driving cars. Slow dialog: 1:26 Explanations: 3:33 Fast dialog: 16:51 Mario: I’d like to test drive the new Racer. Leah: Sure, all prospective buyers can take one of our cars for a test drive. May I see your driver’s license? Mario: Here it is. Leah: Okay, come with me. Why don’t you get into the driver’s seat and I’ll get into the passenger seat? All right, please buckle up and you can drive it around the block. Mario: I think I may need to drive it a little farther to get a feel for the car. Leah: That’s fine, but you’ll need to slow down! Mario: Slow down? How will I know if this car is right for my driving style if I don’t put the pedal to the metal and put it through its paces? Leah: I understand you want to get a complete driving experience, but unless you stop driving recklessly, we’ll need to return to the car lot. Mario: You call this reckless? This isn’t reckless. It’s how I always drive. If you don’t hear the tires screeching, you’re not driving a car the way it should be driven. Leah: Well, an interesting way of looking at it. Uh, I think we’d better head back to the car lot. I’m feeling a little nauseous. Mario: Let me guess. You’ve never ridden in a car driven by a racecar driver before. Leah: That’s right. Mario: Then this is your lucky day! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
