29. "Mother-in-Law" (B)

ESL Robot 4.0 (Android) - an AI-powered English tutor. For years, the idea of computers serving as human-like tutors to aid in English learning has been a distant dream. Now, with the arrival of "ESL Robot 4.0," that dream has become a reality.

Mike: Why, hello there, Janet. How have you been?

Janet: Mike … where is your shirt?

(Mike looks down at himself and remembers he had not fully changed after he has showered.)

Mike: It's … It was really hot, so I decided to take it off.

Janet: But it's only ten o'clock in the morning. The sun isn't even fully out yet.

Mike: Good point. Please come inside while I go put a shirt on.

(Mike escorts Janet inside to the living room and heads into the bedroom to put on a shirt. He comes back to the living room, where Janet is now sitting.)

Mike: That's better. I hope I didn't offend you.

(Janet answers Mike by not answering him.)

Janet: Where's Maria? Is she home?

Mike: Yes, she is. She's just... in the restroom. She'll be out in a minute. Can I get you anything to drink? Some juice, maybe?

Janet: Water will do.

Mike: One glass of water coming right up.

(Mike gives Janet a glass of water from the kitchen. Maria comes out of the restroom and into the living room.)

Maria: Mother! How have you been? It's so good to see you.

Janet: I've been good, dear. How are you?

(Maria and Janet hug each other.)

Maria: How long are you staying?

Janet: For the whole weekend.

Mike: Oh, goody.
