If you like eating outside with the ants and the bugs, you’ll love this episode on having a picnic. Slow dialog: 1:14 Explanations: 3:39 Fast dialog: 14:42 Bill: Surprise! I brought you here to this beautiful spot for a romantic picnic. I have a very special question to ask you. Madison: Oh, that’s so sweet. Did you remember to bring a picnic blanket? Bill: I did. I have everything we’ll need in this picnic basket. Madison: Don’t put it down there. There are ants. You should put it on the blanket. Bill: Yes, you’re right. Madison: And I hope you remembered to bring something to drink. I’m thirsty. Bill: I brought both food and a bottle of champagne. Madison: Well, I hope the food isn’t too cold and the champagne isn’t too warm. You know how I hate warm champagne. Bill: Actually the food is cold because I brought chicken sandwiches and potato salad. Madison: Oh, I thought you would have brought something a little more, well, gourmet or lavish, something a little special. Bill: That’s why I brought the champagne. It’ll make this picnic extra special. Madison: I guess we’ll have to make do with warm champagne and sandwiches. I hope you remembered to bring a corkscrew and some dishes and silverware. Bill: I bought paper plates and plastic utensils. Madison: Paper and plastic? I guess we’ll have to make do with those, too. Okay, now, you said you had a special question you wanted to ask me. What is it? Bill: Question? Oh, never mind. It’ll keep. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
