VICKI: Hey Matt, are you feeling ok? I don't think you're looking too well today. Are you okay?

MATT: Am I okay? No, not really. I've got a temperature, a headache, a sore throat. I think I'm going down with something.

VICKI: Oh dear. I'd say you're going down with the flu!

VICKI: So poor Matt is not very well.

MATT: Yes, I think I'm going down with the flu. But I've got to fight it off Vicki! We've got a programme to do.

VICKI: What a professional, trying not to let yourself get ill, trying to fight it off.

MATT: The show must go on.

VICKI: I've got some pain killers in my bag somewhere. Here.

MATT: Oh. Thanks, that should bring my temperature down.

VICKI: Yes, hopefully it'll reduce your temperature.

VICKI: And here's some water.

MATT: Thanks. Cold water will cool me down too.

VICKI: Yes, if you're feeling hot and unwell, drinking water will stop you being so hot.

MATT: (drinks) Argh. That hurts my throat!

VICKI: Hmm, you're a difficult patient! Why don't you go and have a bit of a lie down?

VICKI: So, Matt, how are you feeling now?

MATT: Oh,…I'm feeling much better thanks! I think I'm getting over it all.

VICKI: Well that's a relief.
