Frank: Yep. You’ll love it. I’ve heard the food here’s amazing!
Waitress: Hi! Welcome! Is this your first time here?
Waitress: Okay, so my name’s Emily and I’ll be your server for the night. Um, so, everything here is à la carte, and I’ll be happy to make a few suggestions if you want me to.
Frank: Actually, we’ll have one of everything.
Waitress: One of- everything?
Frank: Yes, we’d like to try everything.
Waitress: Okay, no problem. Here’s the wine list. I’m going to bring out the appetizers right away.
Frank: Actually can you bring everything out all at once?
Waitress: Um, okay. Yeah, sure.
Mia: My goodness, you weren’t kidding when you said you were a foodie.
Frank: Yeah, what can I say?

Frank: I’ve got to take a picture first! I need to post them on my Instagram.
Mia: Oh. Okay. Can I-
Frank: No, I have to edit them first. Here, have some bread.
Frank: And this is the last one. Oh my gosh, look! The cheese balls already got 200 likes. Ready to eat?
Mia: Yes, please.
Frank: Oh no…
Mia: What? What’s wrong?
Frank: They filet mignon bites. They’re not cooked right. And look, the cheese balls aren’t perfectly round. Plus, everything else is cold.
Mia: Yeah, because it took you 30 minutes to post all those pictures.
Frank: I’m sorry. I’m going to have to send them back.
Mia: No, please. I’m starving!
Frank: We can’t eat this… Uhm, excuse me! Emily!
Mia: Fine, pass me the bread…
