Dialogue 4: Airport Bus

  • Stan:       What time does the bus leave for the airport?

  • Stan:       Do you know the telephone number to call?
  • Harry:     It’s Enterprise 7-4700. At least that’s what it used to be.
  • Stan:       Yeah, I’ll try it. (Pause) They don’t seem to answer.

  • Paul:       Okay. I’ll pick you up at your house.
  • Drew:      See you tomorrow, then, about nine-thirty.

Dialogue 6: Catching a Bus

  • Steve:     Is this where I catch the bus for the zoo?
  • Alan:       You can take a T-30 from here, but then you have to walk about six blocks.
  • Steve:     That doesn’t sound too bad.
  • Alan:       Actually, if you go to the bus stop in the next block, you can take a Z-8 which will let you   right off in front of the zoo.
  • Steve:     Maybe that’s what I’ll do. Thanks a lot.
