(In the restaurant)

 

Russell Brundon

Aren't you hungry?

 

Cora Grant

Oh, yes, we are.

 

Russell Brundon

And I'm awfully thirsty.

 

Cora Grant

Would you like a glass of orange juice?

 

Russell Brundon

Thanks, I'd love one.

I like orange juice very much.

 

Cora Grant

And I prefer apple juice.

 

Russell Brundon

All juices are good for you: tomato, apple, apricot and, of course, pineapple juice.

 

Cora Grant

I like pineapples best of all.

 

Russell Brundon

What shall we have?

 

Cora Grant

The three-course meal, I suppose.

 

Russell Brundon

Well, you choose.

 

Cora Grant

Let's start with salad, then chicken soup, fish and chips.

 

Shirley Pearl

I think, I'll have some peas, fruit and a cup of tea without sugar.

 

Win Lynn

Are you slimming?

 

Shirley Pearl

Yes, I am.

 

Win Lynn

What does your diet allow you?

 

Shirley Pearl

Well, a little meat or fish, eggs, perhaps some cheese or milk, a lot of vegetables: lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, very few potatoes, a lot of fruit.

No cakes, no ice cream, no chocolate and very little salt.

 

Win Lynn

I bet your producer only likes slim actors and actresses.

 

Shirley Pearl

He does indeed.

I have to be on a diet.

I don't live to eat but I eat to live.

 

Tony Dakota

Do you want dressing with your salad?

 

Kate Pagan

No, no, thanks.

 

Tony Dakota

Tastes differ, of course.

 

Kate Pagan

Are you a vegetarian?

 

Maurice Morgan

I don't think any of us is a vegetarian.

 

Tony Dakota

Good roast-beef is much tastier than watery vegetables.

 

Maurice Morgan

I'd order steak.

 

Kate Pagan

Do you like it rare, medium or well done?

 

Maurice Morgan

I must confess I like good food, an occasional beer, cheerful people, theatres and lively music.

 

Arthur Clarke

Is this your keep-fit programme?

 

Maurice Morgan

Yes, it is. My motto is: "Eat at pleasure, drink with measure and enjoy life as it is".

 

Cora Grant

You're not a fitness fanatic, are you?

 

Bernard Berg

The advice of our doctor is quite different.

Don't take a taxi, he says. Walk to your work each day.

Ignore the lift.

Climb the stairs.

Don't eat bread and butter.

Take two cold showers a day.

Do plenty of housework.

Stop drinking. Give up smoking. Exercise your memory. And train your body.

 

Cora Grant

Your recommendations are very useful, Doctor.

 

Arthur Clarke

Glad you think so.

 

Cora Grant

In short, early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

 

Arthur Clarke

You're quite right.

I usually get up at 6.30 and do my morning exercises.

It takes me half an hour.

 

Cora Grant

How many meals a day do you have?

 

Arthur Clarke

I have four meals a day: a light breakfast, lunch, dinner - the heaviest meal, and a cold supper.

As a rule, I don't eat sweet things.

They are fattening.

 

Maurice Morgan

Have you ever tasted Mexican dishes?

 

Arthur Clarke

No, I haven't. I've never been to Mexico.

 

Dulcie Dutchman

What do you think of spicy food?

 

Arthur Clarke

I avoid it.

I prefer good plain food, nothing fancy.

 

Russell Brundon

A cigarette?

 

Arthur Clarke

No, thanks.

 

Tony Dakota

A drop of brandy?

 

Arthur Clarke

I'm off alcohol.

 

Tony Dakota

Isn't it boring sometimes to follow these strict rules?

 

Arthur Clarke

They are not strict.

If you're in perfectly good health, you can enjoy life more and work better.

 

Cora Grant

I agree with you.

Health is the greatest wealth.

 

Maurice Morgan

But it is so difficult to resist temptation.

This apple-pie looks so inviting.

Can I have a piece of it?

 

Cora Grant

Here you are.

 

Maurice Morgan

Thank you.

 

Arthur Clarke

I invite you to my lecture on Thursday evening at the Polytechnic Museum.

It starts at 7.30.

 

Cora Grant

With pleasure.

 

Tony Dakota (Sarcastically)

The more we learn, the less we know.

 

Nora North (Taking up a photo from the floor)

Whose photo is this?

 

Steve McQueen

Heavens! It's mine.

How careless of me!

 

Cora Grant

You have a large family.

 

Steve McQueen

Not very large.

I have a wife, a son and a daughter.

 

Nora North

And who are these young people?

 

Steve McQueen

They are my nephews and my nieces, my sister's and my brother's children.

I have a lot of relatives.

This is my father-in-law.

 

Pat Harris

The young man on the left is your son, isn't he?

 

Steve McQueen

How do you know?

 

Pat Harris

Why! He looks like you.

 

Steve McQueen

But he takes after his mother in character.

He's very hot-tempered.

 

Pat Harris

How old is he?

 

Steve McQueen

He is twenty-one.

He's two years younger than my daughter.

She's in the middle next to him.

I'm missing my children.

 

Mona Doan

Your daughter looks like a film star.

 

Steve McQueen

Does she?

Children adore her.

She teaches French.

She's devoted to her work.

I attended one of her classes once.

The children read and spoke French, wrote a little, sang and played a lot of games.

Now I know learning can be fun.

 

Pat Harris (Addressing the astronaut)

You're single, aren't you?

 

Tony Dakota

Yes, I am.

I've watched the married lives of my friends.

If you don't mind I'll tell you what often happens.

The wife usually complains: "When we sit in the living room you always watch TV and never look at me.

When we eat breakfast together you always read newspapers and never talk to me.

When we go to parties you usually sit with your friends and rarely dance with me.

And you're lazy!

You never help me with the housework.

When our windows are dirty you never wash them.

When our car breaks down you never fix it.

You never play with the kids.

Sometimes I think you don't love me.

Do you call that a happy family life?"

 

Shirley Pearl

Don't be so pessimistic.

 

Tony Dakota

I am not pessimistic.

I'm being realistic.

 

Shirley Pearl

I'm afraid you exaggerate the difficulties of married life.

Love conquers all.

And if wife and husband share...

 

Cora Grant

Excuse my interrupting you but we're running short of time.

 

Tony Dakota

(Addressing the waiter)

Can we have the bill, please?
