(Cheryl calls a car rental agency to rent a van for Paul.)
Cheryl: We’re going to need a van this afternoon. You’re taking the tourists from Chile to the museum. I’ll call the rental company.
Bob: Are you hungry? Want some of my fish sandwich? Oh, sorry. Guess not.
Cheryl: Hi. Is this AutoRent? I need a rental car.
Paul: A van.
Cheryl: Do you rent vans? That’s great. We’ll need to pick it up right away. We’ll probably need it for two weeks. Could we return it on the fifteenth of the month? Great.
Paul: Four-wheel drive. We could take the group from France to the mountains.
Cheryl: Do you have any four-wheel drive vans? (to Paul) They don’t have four-wheel drive vans.
Paul: How about a luxury van with DVD player and stereo?
Cheryl: Do you have any luxury vans with DVD and stereo? (to Paul) Stereo, yes. DVD, no.
Paul: How about a convertible van? Ask them!
Cheryl: Do you have any convertible vans? (to Paul) No. What color do you want?
Paul: Blue. No, red. No, green.
Cheryl: White will be fine. Insurance? Yes, we’d like insurance. Lots and lots of insurance, please.
