14. Police Stop (B)

Repeat

Mike: What did you think of the movie?

Maria: It was alright.

Mike: You didn't like it?

Maria: I didn't dislike it.

Mike: I thought it was great. What didn't you like about it?

Maria: There was too much action going on. It made me feel dizzy at some points.

Mike: Too much action? Maria, it was an action movie! That's what they should have.

Maria: I know. I'm just not too crazy about action films. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Mike: I really did. I'm sorry you didn't.

Maria: Don't feel bad. The next time we go to the theaters, we're watching a movie that I like.

Mike: Alright, you got it.

(Mike and Maria are driving down the highway when a police car sounds the siren behind them. Mike pulls up to the right and parks his car. The police officer exits his vehicle and walks up to their window.)

Mike: Hello, officer. What can I do for you this evening?

Police Officer: Sir, do you know why I stopped you?

Mike: No, I'm sorry. Why?

Police Officer: Your taillight is not working. Were you aware of this?

Mike: No, I'm not. I'm sorry, officer, for not noticing this sooner.

Police Officer: That's alright. Please be more aware of your vehicle next time. I'm going to let you off with just a warning.

Mike: Thank you, officer.

Maria: Thank you.

(The police officer notices Maria in the passenger seat.)

Police Officer: Ma'am, your seatbelt is not fastened.

(Maria notices she forgot to put on her seatbelt, and feels embarrassed.)

Maria: I'm sorry, officer.

(She immediately fastens her seatbelt, and smiles at the officer.)

Police Officer: Please be safer when driving out on the weekend. You never know what could happen.

Mike: We will, officer. Thank you.

Police Officer: You folks have a good night, and drive safely.

Mike: Thank you. You too, officer.

Maria: Good night.

(Mike and Maria drive away feeling a little scared.)
