Mike: Are you ready to go to the pharmacy, Janet?
Janet: Let me just say a few words to Maria before we leave. You can go wait in the car.
Mike: Alright then.
(Mike sighs and goes to wait in the car for Janet. Janet goes to the kitchen to speak to Maria.)
Janet: Maria, I need to ask you something important.
Maria: Yes, mother, what is it?
Janet: How has Mike been treating you? Are you happy living with him?
Maria: Yes, mother, I truly am. Believe me when I say that Mike is the sweetest, most thoughtful man that I have ever met. Why do you even ask such questions?
Janet: It's nothing personal towards Mike. He seems like a fine responsible gentleman. A mother just has her worries.
Maria: I love you, mom. You have nothing to worry about. I'm in good hands. Please trust me.
Janet: I do, Maria. I love you too. I'll be back within an hour.

Maria: Okay, mom.
Janet: Is that husband of yours a good driver? I don't want to get into a collision.
Maria: He is a fine driver, and I thought I told you already, mom. We are not married.
Janet: Not yet? The man'd better ask you soon. You are not getting any younger.
Maria: Mother!
(Janet gets in the car with Mike, and they both drive away.)
Mike: It's really nice to see you again, Janet. You look great.
Janet: Thank you, Mike. You don't have to flatter me. It's not necessary.
Mike: I was just trying to give you a compliment.
Janet: Well, save them for my daughter.
Mike: So how's your husband?
Janet: Bill is doing alright. He had to stay home.
Mike: Tell him hello for me when you return.
Janet: Sure thing, Mike.
(Mike and Janet arrive at the pharmacy. Janet tells Mike to stay in the car. Mike does as he is told and stays in the car.)
