Restaurant conversation Video Script

It’s busy here tonight. I hope the waiter comes soon. I’m hungry! Ah, here we go. Now what shall I have? A steak, perhaps – medium rare. Or maybe the turkey. No, no, give me another minute. I haven’t decided yet. Ah, dear. Decisions, decisions. OK, I’m ready to order. I’d like a bottle of white wine, please – the chablis. And then, I’ll have the turkey, please. Yes, that’s it. OK. Let me check. Is this the one? Yes, that’s the one. Good. A little more please, I’m very thirsty. Great. Oh yes, that’s very good. Not too sweet and not too dry. Dinner, mmmm, that’s very good. A little more wine I think. Oh, this turkey’s great. Just what I wanted. Very tasty! What’s he bringing now? Oh, it’s the bill. So, how much is it? That’s not too bad. I’m going to leave a big tip. I think I’ll come here again.
