Mary
Oh hi Peter.

Peter
Hi.

Mary
Are you ok?

Peter
Yes... Perfect.

Mary
It doesn't look very perfect.

Peter
Well it is. It's just something took me by surprise. Look...

Mary
£10?

Peter
Yes. It's my first ever tip.

Mary
Oh how sweet. Oh and it's a really big tip too - well done. You deserve it. But you'd better get back out there and earn some more...

Peter
Oh yes... ok... thanks Mary.

Gordon
Ah Mary. I'll need you to wash those pans as quickly as possible please.

Mary
OK.

Ceilia
Gordon. Could you lend me £10? I need it for the milkman.

Gordon
Oh... very well. There you go: £10.

Ceilia
Thank you!

Peter
Mary. I can't believe it. I've lost that tip that I was given. I thought I'd put it in my back pocket and then I went into the restaurant...

Gordon
Oh dear Peter. A tip?! How very touching.

Mary
It was his first ... and it was a nice touch. Hang on Gordon, didn't I see you pick something up off the floor a minute ago?

Gordon
Well... I... no, I don't think so.

Ceilia
Hmm... I see Gordon. Seeing as you're a kind and generous... and well paid man, you could give Peter £10... just out of the goodness of your heart. 

Peter
Thank you.
