Get the latest, best machine in this episode - and learn how to talk about it to your friends! Slow dialog: 1:36 Explanations: 3:23 Fast dialog: 18:47 Oleg: Geez, look at that dinosaur. Raquel: This is not a dinosaur. It’s a classic. It will never go out of style and it’s built to last. Oleg: It’s an antique and belongs in a museum. You’ve got to get with it and get one of these. Raquel: What’s that? Oleg: It’s the latest model, with cutting edge design. It’s brand spanking new. Raquel: That’s all right. This machine is tried-and-true and it never lets me down. Oleg: Why don’t you take this for a test drive? It’ll be an eye-opening experience for you. Raquel: No, thanks. Oleg: You don’t know what you’re missing. Raquel: That’s true, but I’m happy with my machine. Oleg: Fine. I’m just trying to help you move with the times. Raquel: Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll stick with what I know and love. Oleg: It just goes to show there’s no accounting for taste. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
