July 15th, 2016

Episode 426 of 489 episodes

Not everyone would put their own lives in danger to help others. Find out more on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:39 Explanations: 3:21 Fast dialog: 14:57 Ana Maria: Did you see this news article about the Good Samaritan who stopped to help a stranger and died? Gio: That’s his own fault. Who told him to meddle in other people’s business? Ana Maria: He wasn’t meddling. He saw that a fellow human being was in distress and was selfless enough to try to help. Gio: Doing a good deed, was he? Going out on a limb to help someone in need, eh? Ana Maria: Exactly. I call him a hero. Gio: I call him a fool. You don’t put yourself in danger to help a stranger. That’s just common sense. Ana Maria: So you would have just walked right by and done nothing to help. Gio: If it meant putting myself in jeopardy. You should always look out for yourself, no matter what the situation. Ana Maria: Great, remind me never to get into a lifeboat with you! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
