Do you feel safe in your own house? If not, learn how to protect yourself in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:29 Explanations: 4:03 Fast dialog: 18:27 Martin: Why do you look so upset? Joselyn: Our neighbor’s house was broken into last night. The burglar stole her laptop and some jewelry. Like us, she doesn’t have a security system. Martin: Burglar alarms aren’t foolproof. Well, I’m not letting any burglars get close to our house. Let’s go. Joselyn: Where are we going? Martin: To the home improvement store. We need to buff up our security. I want to install motion detectors, floodlights, and security cameras to the outside of the house. Joselyn: I suppose that’s a good idea. Martin: I also want to put a timer on our indoor lights and a better deadbolt for the front door. Joselyn: Those will probably help. Martin: We can find out the cost of metal bars for the windows and a security door. Joselyn: Whoa, I think that might be a bit much. Martin: Nonsense. If we’re going to do something, we’re going to do it right. Barbed wire on top of our fence would probably be next… Joselyn: That’s not a good idea… Martin: And last but not least, we’ll need an attack dog. Joselyn: An attack dog?! This is sounding more like a military compound than a home. Martin: That’s right. When I’m done, Fort Knox will have nothing on us! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
