Rose is charmed by Jack's attempts to speak French and tries to politely correct him.
Hi Maria, would you introduce me to your friend?
Bonjour Madame, Comment allez vous?
Sure, this is Rose. She's visiting from Paris.
Rose, I present Jack.
Bonsoir! It's a pleasure to meet you. You don't have to be so formal. We are the same age!
I'm going to get a soda. What would you ladies like?
I'd like one too.
I demand a coke.
I've got a pocket full of money for tonight and I'm a gentleman, but you could still ask nicely.
Trouble is brewing as Jack and Rose silently try to understand what the other had said. Maria, has travelled a lot and does not take words too literally. Therefore, she is absolutely content and has no idea that there was even a conflict.
I don't understand what happened?
He must be in a bad mood and having difficulty finding work to have only a pocket full of coins.
Why is she so commanding? I've just met her. I'll be polite but don't ever want to see her again.
Isn't this so much fun?
He's so nice, I hope I have the chance to see him again. Maybe next time he won't have to look for coins to go out. We can always find ways to have fun!
Jack learns the value of paying attention in class and doing his French homework.
