1,149 - Delaying Making a Decision

October 24th, 2015

Episode 310 of 489 episodes

I can’t decide how to describe this episode. I know, I know, you’re waiting for me, but I promise I’ll tell you . . . later. Slow dialog: 1:30 Explanations: 3:19 Fast dialog: 14:44 Thomas: You’ve hemmed and hawed for weeks. It’s time to make a decision. Eugenia: I know, but I need to sleep on it. This is a very big decision. Thomas: You’ve dragged your feet for far too long. Are you having second thoughts? Eugenia: No, no second thoughts. I just want to be absolutely sure I’m making the right choice. I’m on the fence between two options. We’ll have to live with this decision for years. Thomas: I thought you’d already made a tentative decision days ago. Eugenia: No, no, no. In my mind, the jury is still out. Thomas: You can’t leave everyone hanging. Eugenia: I know that, but how can I choose if I’m not 100% positive about either option. Thomas: I understand that, but it’s now down to the wire. You’ve got to bite the bullet and decide. Eugenia: I know. If only I had a few more days to think about it… Thomas: Too late. They’re here. Eugenia: The painters are here? Thomas: Yes. So will this be a blue or green house? Eugenia: How about stripes? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
