Helen: Oh, no. It’s that time of the month again — time to pay the rent.
Tim: Comes round fast enough, doesn’t it?
Alice: Yeah, and I am so broke just now. I don’t know where my money goes.
Tim: You need to tighten your belt, Alice. Well, I’m fairly flush this month. Want me to lend you some cash?
Alice: Tim, would you?
Tim: Sure, you know me, always willing to help a friend in a difficult situation. I think this is what friends are for.
Alice: Thank you, Tim, my dear friend!
