Waiter: Good evening, sir and madam. Shall I take your coats?
Mr. Adams: Thank you. Where shall we sit, Barbara?
Waiter: Oh, would you like to sit over here, sir? Near the window?
Mr. Adams: Ah, yes… Could we see the menu?
Waiter: Certainly. Here it is.
Mr. Adams: Do you fancy a starter?
Mrs. Adams: Mmm… I think I’ll have the prawn cocktail. I’m very fond of prawns. What about you?
Mr. Adams: I’m not sure… I can’t decide.
Mrs. Adams: Oh. I’d have the trout, if I were you. You always say that you like trout, and you haven’t had it for a long time.
Waiter: Are you ready to order yet, sir?
Mr. Adams: Yes, a prawn cocktail for my wife, and the trout for me.
Waiter: And the main course, sir?
Mr. Adams: Veal for my wife.
Waiter: It’s the specialty of the house. What would you like with your veal?
Mr. Adams: Two mixed salads, please.
Waiter: Any vegetables, sir?
Mr. Adams: Yes, some cauliflower and some boiled potatoes, please.
Waiter: Anything to follow?
Mr. Adams: Can we order it later?
Waiter: Of course, sir!
