I promise you that you will learn all about how to break a promise on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 3:43 Fast dialog: 17:56 Jean-Paul: What’s going on? I thought it was a done deal. Charlene: I think you misunderstood. The last time we talked, I said I would think about partnering up, but now that I have, I’m going to beg off. Jean-Paul: What you said was that you were agreeable to the idea and that we would work out the details later. Now you’re backtracking? Charlene: I would never renege on a promise. If I gave my word, I would follow through. In this case, I didn’t. Jean-Paul: I’m really surprised by your denial. I didn’t have you pegged as someone who backs out of deals. Charlene: All I can say is that we don’t see eye to eye. Let’s agree to disagree and leave it at that. Jean-Paul: That’s easy for you to say. Your failure to honor your promise is going to put me in a very awkward position. Charlene: How’s that? We only spoke yesterday. Jean-Paul: I may have made some promises of my own and now I’ll have to get out of them somehow. Charlene: May I make a suggestion? Jean-Paul: What? Deny, deny, deny? Charlene: Well, it’s worked for me. Jean-Paul: Oh, the nerve of some people! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
