Natural speed and loud voice, please. Please do not read the name of the characters (Amy and Tony; Jackie and Lana). Thank you very much.
Amy: I wonder what's taking Talia so long.
Tony: Maybe it's time for us to call her.
Amy: Don't worry. She has a really good plan. I think it's going to work.
Tony: I'm happy to hear that.
Amy: Why didn't you air the story about Nick on the news tonight?
Tony: I made the decision to wait because I wanted to speak to Talia first.
Amy: She and Nick are having dinner at Valentino's.
Tony: That's a nice place to eat, but I just hope this plan of hers works!
Amy: Do you think the Federation will let Nick play again?
Tony: It's hard to say. It depends on the proof Nick gives them.
Amy: What will happen if Nick can't play?
Tony: It's impossible for them to win without Nick.
Jackie: Hi, Lana. It's Jackie. Look, I've got to talk to you. Do you have time to talk now?
Lana: Sure. What's the matter? You sound ready to cry.
Jackie: I'm so angry at Dean. He promised to introduce me to this director friend of his, but there is no director.
Lana: I'm not surprised to hear that. Dean's always disappointing you.
Jackie: I know. I'm embarrassed to admit that, for some reason, I believed him this time. I was a fool to believe him.
Lana: Well, it's always a good idea to be skeptical when you're dealing with your brother. But don't worry. You're a great actress, Jackie. You don't need Dean's help.
Jackie: Thanks, Lana. I'm lucky to have a friend like you!
