Collette: Hello!
Michelle:
Ah, daddy!
Dan:
It's ok Michelle, this is that lady I was telling you about. Hi, I take it you are Collette right?
Collette:
Yeah, that's me!
Dan:
This is Michelle, my daughter.
Collette:
She's adorable.
Dan:
(Laughs) Yeah, some of the time...
Collette:
Nice house.
Dan:
Thanks. Come on in.

Dan: Welcome to our home. It's a bit small and cramped but it does the job.
Collette:
It's... nice.
Dan:
Thanks. Dinner will be ready in a few minutes, so take a seat on the sofa and I'll just check on it.
Collette:
Ok.

Collette: Are you on your summer holidays at the moment?
Michelle:
Yes. I'm going back to school on Monday though. Boo!
Collette:
I didn't like school much either (Laughs).
Dan:
Dinner is served!

They've been eating dinner for 6 minutes. Collette and Dan have hardly spoken to each other.
Michelle: I'm getting a new teacher too when I go back to school!
Collette: Are you!? Are they nice?
Michelle: I think so.

Collette: So what's your favourite subject at school?
Michelle:
Art.
Collette:
Oh, I like Art too!
Dan:
Michelle, go and play with your toys now.
Michelle:
Collette's finished too! Can't she come and play with me?
Dan:
No. Off you go.
Michelle:
It's not fair!
Dan:
Now!

Dan: Right, you haven't got an excuse to not talk to me now.
Collette:
What do you mean?
Dan:
All through dinner, you've just been talking to Michelle!
Collette:
I could hardly ignore her, could I?
Dan:
You kept asking her more questions!
Collette:
I'm sorry, but I just think she's lovely.
Dan:
Well, we are supposed to be on a date.
Collette:
I know, I'm sorry.
Dan:
(sighs) Ok. Well, should we have a chat on the sofa?
Collette:
Sure.

Dan: So...
Collette:
So..
Dan:
Where do you work?
Collette:
In an office.
Dan:
What's that like?
Collette:
A bit boring, stressful, but it pays well.
Dan:
Yeah... I work on a ranch.
Collette:
Oh yeah? What do you do there?
Dan:
Look after cattle mostly.
Collette:
Interesting.

Dan and Collette have been talking on the sofa's for 12 minutes.
Collette:
We've got to have more in common.
Dan:
Music?
Collette:
Oh, I like lots of music!
Dan:
Western?
Collette:
Erm... no.
Dan:
Films?
Collette:
Not really my thing.
Dan:
I like action films.

Collette: Science? Any interest in science?
Dan:
No. Erm... how about animals?
Collette:
Not really. Travelling?
Dan:
No, I like it here.
Collette:
(Laughs) We've got nothing in common!
Dan:
I know! Wait a minute, children!
Collette:
I like kids.
Dan:
I like kids too!
Collette:
Yeah, but it's all we've got in common. Were never going to work out.
Dan:
I know... the viewers made a mistake pairing us up.
Collette:
(Laughs) They defiantly did! Thanks for the meal and everything, your a nice guy and I'm sure you'll find someone right for you soon.
Dan:
I hope so. I hope you find someone you like too.
Collette:
Oh, Thank you! I'll just say goodbye to Michelle.
Dan:
Yeah, she really likes you.

Collette: Bye Michelle, I'm off now.
Michelle:
Already!?
Collette:
You dad and I are two very different people. We don't really like the same things.
Michelle:
But my dad really needs someone!
Collette:
He'll find someone soon enough.
Michelle:
I hope so!
