Slow dialog: 1:12 Explanations: 3:24 Fast dialog: 17:13 Jim: We only have three minutes before the movie starts. You grab two seats and I’ll hit the concession stand. ... Suki: Can I help you? Jim: Yes, I’d like a large popcorn and a hot dog with the works. Suki: Anything else? Jim: Yes, I’ll also take an order of nachos and a pretzel. Suki: Sorry, we’re out of pretzels right now, but we have cotton candy, snow cones, and pizza. Jim: All right, then give me a slice of pizza. Suki: Will that be all? Jim: No, I’d also like a box of licorice, a package of beef jerky, and an ice cream sandwich. Suki: Anything to drink? Jim: Yes, I’ll take two large sodas. Suki: All right, that’ll be $84.50. Jim: What?! That’s highway robbery! Suki: Our prices are posted on the board. You can see them right up there. Do you still want all this? Jim: Just give me the soda and popcorn. Suki: Are you sure you’ll make it through the movie with just that? Jim: I have no choice. I’d have to commit robbery if I wanted anything else! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
