(Mike and Maria enter the electronic store where they are greeted by a salesperson.)
Salesclerk: Good afternoon! How are you two doing today?
Mike: We're fine, thank you.
Maria: Good, how are you?
Salesclerk: I'm doing great. Are you two married?
Mike: No, not yet.
(Maria blushed.)
Salesclerk: How can I help you today?
Mike: Our television broke down today, and we are looking to buy a new one. Is your store having any specials for televisions today?
Salesclerk: Yes! We actually have a great deal for our best television. Let me show you. Follow me this way, please.
(Mike and Maria followed the man to the television section.)
Maria: Wow, look at all these televisions.
Mike: We don't want to buy an expensive television.
Salesclerk: Let me just show you our best television.

(Mike and Maria are shown the television. Mike is impressed by the size and sound of it.)
Salesclerk: For only a minimum down payment, you can take this beauty home today. What do you two say?
Mike: I really like it. But I think it's too much for our budget.
Maria: I agree with Mike. We're just looking for something more affordable.
Salesclerk: I hear what you two are saying. Let me show you our more reasonably priced televisions.
(The Salesclerk shows Mike and Maria an aisle of affordable televisions.)
Mike: This is more like it. Thank you.
Salesclerk: You are welcome. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions. When you two are ready to buy a television, please let me know.
Mike: I think I want this one. What do you think, Maria?
Maria: It's inexpensive. I like it.
Mike: We'll take it.
(Mike and Maria purchased the affordable television.)
