Waiter: Oh, yes. Table numer eight. This way, please.

Guest: May we sit here? We'd like a table in the corner.

Waiter: I'm sorry, Sir. This table is reserved.

Guest: All right then. Could we have the menu, please?

Waiter: Would you like anything to drink?

Guest I: We'd like a bottle of red wine, please.

Waiter: How about dessert?

Guest I: Let me see... Peaches and cream for me. What about you, darling?

Guest II: Custard and fruit would be nice, I think.

Waiter: Is that all?

Guest I: Yes, that's all.
