Larry: OK... and we’re off the air. Good show.
SFX: Office sounds. Sound of box placed on table.
Kathy: (VO) Well, here you go, Max.
Max: What’s that box for?
Kathy: It’s for all this extra paper. We can use most of this stuff again.
SFX: sound of paper being gathered and put in box
Max: (VO) You’re right. Most of this paper is from the computer printer.
The other sides are blank.
SFX: door opening, footsteps
Kathy: (VO) I got this box in the lobby.
They think we waste too much paper.
Eliz: What are you guys doing?
Max: We want to get rid of this extra paper.
What should we do with these old newspapers?
Eliz: Oh, put them in the recycling bin.
Max: Where’s that?
SFX: footsteps, door opening
Eliz: It’s right here in the hallway.
It’s new. They just set it up.
Newspapers go in the blue bin.
Then, once a week, they will be picked up for recycling.
Max: Now I’ll have to clean up my office!
SFX: sound of large bundle being tossed into bin
Larry: OK. Quiet, please, everyone. Ready for Functioning in Business.

If you remember, Mr. Blake expected to meet Mr. Chapman.

He was called out of town on a personal matter very suddenly.
And he does assure me he is looking forward to meeting with you as soon as he gets back.
Gomez: In the meantime, I’m quite familiar with International Robotics and your products...
...and so I’d like to work with you, if that would be all right.
Blake: Okay, sure. And I understand about Mr. Chapman’s absence.
It’s no problem.
