Trendy Italian in Groucho Marx glasses: Excuse me, can I talk to the manager?
Emily: Sure, I’m the manager.
Trendy Italian: Would be be OK to do some filming in the shop for the short film I’m making?
Emily: Possibly – what would be involved?
Trendy Italian: Well, it’s a science fiction story, about a man from the future who travels back in time and arrives in a bookshop? But he’s from the future, so he doesn’t know what books are? But, like, every book he picks up, the knowledge in it is transferred directly into his brain?
Trendy Italian: Yeah.
Emily: Well, we wouldn’t be able to close the shop, so you’d have to do it while we’re open.
Trendy Italian: That’s fine.
Emily: It should be no problem then.
Trendy Italian: Great! I’ll be in touch.
Emily: OK, fine.
Trendy Italian: Oh, one thing I forgot. The actor will be naked.
