Slow dialog: 1:30 Explanations: 3:47 Fast dialog: 16:18 [doorbell rings] Otto: Hi, I’m Otto from Windows-R-Us. I’m here to show you the window treatment options we offer and to take measurements for installation if you decide to order from our store. Jean: Hi, Otto. I’m Jean. Come on in. I want to get some new window treatments for the living room. Can you show me what you have? Otto: Sure. For the living room, I would recommend these beautiful wooden shutters. Opening the slats allows light to filter in and closing them blocks light and gives you privacy. Jean: They’re nice, but I think they may be a little too expensive for me. Otto: In that case, you might like blinds, mini blinds or vertical blinds. They have the same function as shutters at a fraction of the price. Jean: Those are still a little bit pricey. Are there any other options? Otto: Well, you could go with curtains. You can choose the type of curtain rods that match your decor and any kind of fabric. With a valance, they would look very nice. Jean: Nice fabric could cost a lot of money. Any other suggestions? Otto: Do you have a bed sheet? Jean: Yes. Otto: Nail it over your window and call it a day. Have a nice day, ma’am.
