Man with rimless spectacles: Have you got any Tom Clancy?
Emily:
Not at the moment, I’m afraid.
Man with rimless spectacles:
How about The Sum of All Fears by Tom Clancy?
Emily:
We don’t have any Tom Clancy.
Man with rimless spectacles:
Because I’m looking for Tom Clancy first editions.
Emily:
Well, sorry, we don’t have any at the moment.
Man with rimless spectacles:
: Are there other bookshops round here?
Emily:
Yes, if you turn right when you leave the shop, there are several more.
Man with rimless spectacles:
Is that going back the way I’ve just come from?
Emily
: I don’t know where you’ve just come from.
Man with rimless spectacles:
Right.
