In this dialog, Peter,the non-dealer, is talking with Paula. He remained firm. Peter needs the deal as much as Paula and after several hours of stalled talks, he sees Paula won't give any more,so he makes a counter offer.
Peter:I still don't see why you don't just accept the deal.It's a good one.
Paula:I don't think so.
Our counter offer is more than generous and I don't know why you insist on this ridiculous price your formula gives you.
Peter:It's not ridiculous; it's fair.
Paula:I don't think so.My client is firm on this point.If that's your best offer,we'll take the matter to arbitration.
Peter:There is no reason why we would agree to arbitration.
Paula:Whatever, then,we'll wait until you come down to a more reasonable price. All I know is this price is not going to fly.
Peter:Very well,I'll tell you what I'll do.
You can have the property for 20% off our asking price. That's my best price.
Paula:All right,I'll talk to my client and get back to you.内容来自 听力课堂网：http://www.tingclass.net/show-8543-243829-1.html
