1,125 - Serving Alcoholic Drinks

July 31st, 2015

Episode 274 of 489 episodes

Have another round of drinks before you listen to this episode (that is, if you’re old enough to drink). Slow dialog: 1:30 Explanations: 3:04 Fast dialog: 14:04 Bethany: Where is everybody? Nathan: While you were in the bathroom, the other guys left. Bethany: In that case, I should go, too. It’s getting late. Nathan: The night is young. Let me get you a refill. Bethany: No, I really shouldn’t have another drink. I had a neat drink after dinner and I’m still feeling the effects. I’m a lightweight and I’m not normally a drinker. Nathan: What’s the harm? Have one for the road. I’ll serve this one straight up and with a twist of lemon. It’s my specialty. I could also mix you a cocktail, if you prefer. Consider it a nightcap. Bethany: No, I really shouldn’t. Nathan: All right, I’ll just top off that drink in your hand. Bethany: No, it’s late, I’m tired, and I have to go. Nathan: Don’t rush off. You wouldn’t want to get a reputation for being a spoilsport, would you? Bethany: I prefer that to the alternative! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
