Scene 1 Video Script
In the office, Bob troubleshoots computer problems for Marie, Paul, and Cheryl.

Marie: Bob, can you help me with something?
Bob: Sure.
Marie: I’m trying to print a file, but the printer won’t work.
Bob: Push the green button on the printer.
Marie: Why?
Bob: To turn it on. It won’t print unless it’s on.
Marie: Oh, right. Silly me. Thank you.
Paul: Hey, Bob. My laptop crashed, and I can’t get it to do anything. I type on the keyboard and nothing happens.
Bob: Stick this here.
Paul: Why?
Bob: To restart the computer.
Paul: You sure? OK. Thanks.
Cheryl: Bob, I could use a hand with something.
Bob: What is it?
Cheryl: Somebody sent me an e-mail, but I think it has a virus in it.
Bob: Don’t open the attachment. Click on the No-Virus icon on the toolbar.
Cheryl: Why?
Bob: To clean the computer and stop the virus.
Cheryl: Thanks!
Marie: Bob, can I ask you another question?
Bob: I’m sorry, but I can’t get any work done with all these questions! Please. I have some very important stuff I need to finish right now.
Marie: Very important stuff?
Bob: How can I help you?
