1,122 - Making Peace

July 20th, 2015

Episode 268 of 489 episodes

Come on, people now! Let’s try and love one another right now. Learn how in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:24 Explanations: 3:16 Fast dialog: 16:38 Vladimir: We need a ceasefire. The violence is escalating and we need to put a stop to this. Hilary: I agree, but do you think our enemies will agree to a truce? Vladimir: They’re as embattled as we are. They may welcome a suspension of hostilities until we can agree on a peace treaty. Hilary: I hate to think what their conditions will be for an armistice. This war has dragged on for so long. Vladimir: I suspect they feel the same as we do. If we make a conciliatory gesture, I think they’ll respond in kind. Hilary: Do you really think so? We won’t come off as weak? Vladimir: I don’t think so. We’re taking the first step to peace. They’ll see that. Hilary: If you say so. All right, let’s do it. This war with our neighbors is getting old. Do you want to bring them this fruitcake or should I? Vladimir: I’ll take it, but first I’ll make sure their ugly, dirty, mean barking dog that wakes me up in the middle of the night is tied up. I don’t want to become a casualty while bringing them this peace offering! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
