# video script
(Paul enters the apartment to show his new cell phone.)
Cheryl: Hi, Paul
Paul: Wait ‘til you see what I’ve got.
Bob: What is it?
Paul: Well, I have this problem with my cell phone. Whenever I’m traveling with a group, I can never hear it ring or feel it vibrate. So I got this thing that lets me know whenever my phone is ringing.
Marie: How does it do that?
Paul: It buzzes me.
Marie: Buzzes?
Paul: You know, buzz, buzz. So I can feel it.
Cheryl: Does it work?
Paul: I don’t know. No one’s called me yet ... Ow!
Marie: What?!
Paul: Someone’s calling me! Hello? Hello? No one’s there. Wow. That was a big buzz. That almost hurt.
Cheryl: Maybe it isn’t working right.
Paul: It’s working fine ... Ooh! Ow! Another phone call. Hello? Hello? That’s strange. Man, if I ever get used to that, I’ll always know whenever my phone is ringing ... Ahhhhhh! Stop calling me!
Marie: Paul. If I were you, I would take that thing back to the store before you hurt yourself.
Paul: I’m going. I’ll see you later.
Marie: I hope he can drive OK.
Bob: He’ll be fine.
Cheryl: How do you know?

Bob: I’ll stop calling him.
