На русский язык перевод

Bernard Berg

Well, we've got a very interesting invitation.

I've received a letter.

"Dear Bernard, I live in a Moscow suburb now.

It's called Peredelkino (Kiev Railway line).

Please note my new address and my telephone number.

Why not come and see me?

Expect you any day, any time.

You might as well bring your friends.

Give me a ring, please.

Hope you can come.

Yours Helen"

Shirley Pearl

Who is Helen?

Bernard Berg

She's an old friend of mine, my colleague and the translator of my publications.

Wesley West

So, will you go?

Shirley Pearl

Well, I'd like to see a Moscow suburb.

(At Helen's house.

The guests ring the bell.)

Helen (from behind the door)

I'm coming, just a minute.

(Helen opens the door.

She is an elderly woman.

She is wearing a dark blue blouse and a grey skirt.)

Hullo. Ah, it's you Bernard!

How lovely to see you!

Bernard Berg

We aren't intruding, are we?

Helen

No, not at all. You are welcome.

Come in, everybody.

Bernard Berg

These are my friends.

(They introduce themselves...

Bernard gives Helen a box of chocolates and a bunch of flowers.)

Helen

Thank you.

Fresh roses!

What a sweet smell!

You can hang up your hats, coats, and umbrellas here.

This way, please.

Will you go into the living-room?

I'll be back in no time.

Shirley Pearl

What a cosy place!

Maurice Morgan

There isn't much furniture.

Shirley Pearl

Nothing superfluous.

Maurice Morgan

What a lovely combination of colours: gold, brown, white, a little red and black.

And then that green pot-plant!

Win Lynn

The room looks cheerful!

Helen (coming)

Make yourselves comfortable.

There aren't enough chairs here.

Bernard, could you fetch some more from the next room?

Bernard Berg

You've moved in recently, haven't you?

Helen

Yes, I have.

But I haven't had the time to furnish the rooms.

My son has some very good ideas!

He follows the principle: "If you can't have the best, make the best of what you have".

Maurice Morgan

Where does your son work?

Helen

He's an interior designer.

He works for a big firm of designers in Tverskaya Street.

Maurice Morgan

Does he like his job?

Helen

"Like" is not the right word. He loves it there.

Nora North

You've got some lovely paintings.

Helen

My son paints in his free time.

By the way, this is his plan for furnishing my living-room.

Take a look at it.

Russell Brundon

The room faces south-east.

Helen

There's to be a fireplace in the left-hand corner.

Russell Brundon

Are these built-in bookcases in the right-hand corner?

Helen

Yes, they are. I haven't got many books.

But I'm rather choosy.

Arthur Clarke

Choose an author as you choose a friend.

Helen

You read my mind.

Opposite the window there'll be a sofa, three arm-chairs and a big carpet on the floor.

Nora North

The view is wonderful!

Helen

It's very beautiful when it snows.

Maurice Morgan

And when it rains?

Helen

It's beautiful practically in any season: in spring, in summer, in autumn, and in winter.

Shirley Pearl

What's the winter like here?

Helen

You should see it for yourself.

Tony Dakota

I like all sorts of weather, when it's hot, warm or cold, frosty or cloudy, except windy weather.

It gets on my nerves.

Russell Brundon

The English say: there's no bad weather, there are bad clothes.

Nora North

Is the house large enough for your family?

Helen

Oh, quite.

There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two lavatories, a living-room, a study and a kitchen.

Russell Brundon

Is there a garage?

Helen

Yes, on the north side of the house.

Nora North

Is the house convenient to live in?

Helen

Oh, yes. It's an easy house to live in.

I've got all the modern conveniences: electricity, gas, central heating and a telephone.

Arthur Clarke

How long have you been living here?

Helen

For about half a year.

Steve McQueen

Do you work in Moscow?

Helen

Yes, I go to town three days a week: on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

On Monday and Thursday I stay here and work in my study.

Saturday and Sunday are my days off.

Wesley West

How long does it take you to get to your work in the city?

Helen

If I go by local train it takes me more than an hour.

If I go by car it saves a lot of time.

Wesley West

Do you drive?

Helen

Yes, I do.

I type my lectures and articles.

I clean the rooms, cook and wash up.

I can do everything myself, except for some repairs, of course.

Wesley West

Your son doesn't live here, does he?

Helen

No, he doesn't.

He's a city lover.

He's got a three-room flat in the centre of Moscow.

He and his family often come over here for the week-ends.

I have a pet, a very clever cat.

His name is Bartholomew.

So, I'm never lonely.

I'm never idle, you know.

Shirley Pearl

Who takes care of your garden?

(They hear the whistle.)

Helen

The tea is ready.

(Helen wheels a trolley with the tea things.)

Helen

Help yourself, please.

These cakes are home-made.

Shirley Pearl

Delicious.

Tony Dakota

Fantastic!

Helen

Will you pass me the teapot, please?

I'll pour the tea.

Maurice Morgan

Yes, please.

That would be nice.

Helen

Some more tea?

Arthur Clarke

No, thank you.

Bernard Berg

What about your latest research work?

Have you finished it yet?

Helen

Unfortunately, not yet.

I have a lot to do.

Bernard Berg

We wish you success.

Everybody

Thank you very much for having us.

Helen

The pleasure was all mine.

All the best!

Bernard (to Helen)

Take care! See you soon.
