OK. I’ll ring round some of the local hotels.

Thanks. It’ll be good to see some new places.
To the future.
Good morning, Zoe, Julia.
– Morning, Ted.
Oh, Zoe, I’ve got a package for you here and you need to sign for it.
Well, I wouldn’t have believed it, if I hadn’t heard it from Martha.
– See you later, Zoe.
– So he’s definitely going to Australia
– Yes, to Kangaroo TV.
Hello. Tim Barnes.
What!? Is she all right?
The General Yeah, I’m on my way.
Julia, are you all right? What happened?
You may well ask, Tim Barnes. This is all your fault.
If you hadn’t decided to go off to Australia, this wouldn’t have happened.
You should have told me, Tim.
Could somebody please tell me what’s going on
I was in reception and I heard Abigail saying that you were definitely going to Australia.
She said that I was going to Australia
Well, she didn’t actually mention your name, but I don’t think it’s very funny.
If that driver hadn’t stopped so quickly, Julia would have been killed.
She wasn’t talking about me.
She was talking about Frederick. I’m not going to Australia.
Let me get this straight.

Frederick’s going to be Managing Director of Kangaroo TV and Martha’s taking over
Managing Director: the person who is in overall charge of the running of an organization or business
Then Simon Fletcher is taking Martha’s place and they’ve offered me Simon’s old job as foreign reporter.
So as soon as you’re well again, we can get married.
But nothing’s really changed, has it, Tim?
What do you mean?
You wouldn’t have asked me to marry you if you hadn’t been offered the job in Australia.
And you would have gone, if Simon’s job hadn’t come up.
No. I’d already turned the Australian job down.
turn sth/sb down: a phrasal verb – to refuse an offer or request
I don’t believe you.
How’s the patient?
Look, I’ll show you.
Oh, no. I put it under your door.
Is this what you want?
You really turned it down?
I e-mailed that yesterday before I knew anything about the job at Apex.
It’s true, Julia. I saw him typing it.
It must be nice being a foreign reporter going to all those different places.
It is. I’m off to Barbados today.
Barbados: an island in North Atlantic Ocean
Oh really!? So am I. I’m staying at the Honeymoon Hotel.
Perhaps I’ll see you there, Mr Barnes.
Perhaps you will, Mrs Barnes.
