Marie: We’re running out of time. Oh, there she is.
Cheryl: I’m sorry I’m late. I couldn’t find a parking space. Have you been here long?
Bob: Since yesterday. But it’s no problem. The waiter brought us food and we slept on the floor.
Cheryl: Have you chosen a movie yet?
Marie: We’ve been trying. Unfortunately, these guys have seen almost everything.
Paul: We like the movies.
Marie: What about the action film The Last Train to Hong Kong?
Bob: “Where is this train going?”
Paul: “Believe me, you’d rather not know.”
Bob: "We’re going to Hong Kong, aren’t we?”
Paul: “Would you rather stay here and fight the 100 men?”
Bob: “No. And I’ve always wanted to see Hong Kong.”
Paul: “Look out!”
Marie: They’ve been doing this for a half hour.

Cheryl: How about the horror movie The Hand?
Paul: “I’ve just returned from the train station. Have you seen anything lately?”
