1,238 - Making Accusations

August 29th, 2016

Episode 440 of 463 episodes

Did you steal my lunch today? Learn about blaming other people for something they may not have done in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:13 Explanations: 3:49 Fast dialog: 17:40 Pierre: What happened here?! Marie: It looks like somebody trashed your experiment. Pierre: It’s ruined, completely ruined. Marie: Who could have done this? Why are you looking at me like that? Pierre: Very few people have access to this lab and even fewer know which of these experiments is mine. Whoever did this knew how to do maximum damage. Marie: And you’re accusing me? I helped you with that experiment. I’d sooner ruin my own work than intentionally damage someone else’s, much less yours. What would be my motive? Pierre: Maybe you gave me a little too much help and now my work is outshining yours. Marie: Your suspicions are completely unfounded. I’ve never been jealous of any attention you’ve received. You’re totally off base. Pierre: Maybe you’re right. I’m sorry. I just can’t believe what’s happened. Marie: I’d be upset, too, but let’s not do any more finger-pointing. We need more information before we accuse or exonerate anyone. Let’s try to stay calm. Pierre: Yes, of course, you’re right. Hey, what happened to your workspace? It looks like it’s been tampered with. Marie: What?! I’ll kill whoever did this! I’ll kill them! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
