Episode 7. Come to Lunch
SARAH invites ANNE to meet her family.
SARAH and ANNE taste a sample of wine.
ANNE Mmm. It’s very smooth. Good flavour too.
SARAH It sells well in restaurants here. I think these’ll sell well in Singapore.
ANNE The samples you sent me were very popular with our staff. You seem to understand our tastes in Singapore.
SARAH Thankyou. It’s my job to know what my clients like.
ANNE seems distracted. SARAH observes her for a moment.
SARAH So, are you enjoying the city?
It’s very nice.
SARAH What are you going to do tomorrow?
ANNE I don’t know. I’ll probably stay in the hotel and relax.
SARAH Why don’t you come to lunch with us at home?
ANNE Oh thankyou, but you have your family.
SARAH Yes, and they want to meet you. We’re going to have roast chicken – traditional Aussie food.
ANNE Sounds good. Alright, I’ll come.
ANNE What time?
SARAH We eat at about one-o-clock. So about twelve-thirty? I’ll show you the house.
ANNE Okay. Thankyou
SARAH I’ll get my brother to pick you up.
ANNE No that’s okay. I’ll get a taxi.
SARAH Alright then. That’s settled!
