[00:00.00]Wouldn't it be possible for me to take the day off this Friday?
[00:03.63]I think we need to buy a new copier.
[00:07.31]You did say next Tuesday at 2:00 p.m.,didn't you?
[00:10.81]I had a feeling he was in favor of the plan.
[00:14.08]Could you tell me about him?
[00:16.04]Bill,could you help me move this table?
[00:18.81]How's your schedule today?
[00:20.87]I have a tight schedule.
[00:23.12]Do you want me to help you?
[00:25.10]We need to meet with Mr.Johnson from ABC Company.
[00:28.76]It would be a big help if you could arrange the meeting.
[00:32.21]If you could help me with the presentation,I'd be grateful.
[00:38.14]Did you get that OK?
[00:40.23]Please finish this assignment by Monday.
[00:42.89]The finance director should be there.
[00:45.61]The meeting should be held at the Ark Hills Center.
[00:47.22]会议应在Ark Hills Center举行。
[00:48.82]If there are any problems,please let me know.
[00:52.64]Be careful not to make the same kind of mistake again.
[00:58.49]Palmer:How's everything going,Tom?I know you've been pretty swamped lately.
[01:02.80]Yang:Everything's going well,Mr.Palmerexcept for one thing.
[01:06.40]P:Oh?what is it?
[01:08.02]Y:This copier.I really think we need to buy a new one.It's been breaking down about twice a week.
[01:14.63]P:Is that so?That must really make things difficult.I'll have Pauline take care of it right away.
[01:23.04]P:By the way,there's another change I want to make,if it's okey with you.
[01:29.76]P:That's it -"Mr.Palmer."I'd feel much more comfortable if you'd call me Don.Everyone else does.
[01:36.65]Y:Oh-certainly,Mr.-uh,Don.I guess I'm still not used to calling my superiors by their first name.In our country,we sometimes work with people for months before we even learn their first name.
[01:49.98]P:Well,this is L.A.Here,we can go for months without learning a person's last name.
[01:57.32]Y:Oh,Diane,I'd appreciate it if you could help me with the presentation I'm giving next week at Radco Electronics.How's your schedule today?
[02:06.30]Newton:Well,it's pretty busy this morning,but I'll have some time between two and three.Would that be okay?
[02:11.74]Y:Yes,that'd be great-thanks.I'm going to talk about the marketing strategy for the new EBP,and I think you have an excellent grasp of the subject.
[02:21.19]N:Thank you.Oh,by the way,how was the response last week at Intertech?
[02:26.16]Y:Well,there seemed to be a lot of interest in the EBP,but I don't know if they're ready to put in an order yet.Intertech tends to be pretty cautious.
[02:36.06]N:Yes,that's true...but I'm sure you'll win them over,Mr.Yang.
[02:40.39]Y:Diane,you don't have to call me Mr.Yang.Everyone goes by first names here.
[02:46.69]N:Well...actually,I'm from Boston,and I guess I'm still not used to how informal people are here in L.A.
[02:54.05]Y:I know what you mean.
[02:55.39]N:Besides...to tell you the truth,Mr.Yang...I find your first name kind of hard to pronounce.
