Extra English 14 - Changes
This is the story of Bridget and Annie,
Nick and his friend Hector, from Argentina.
I'm so glad you like it, Nick.
there's plenty more where that came from.
- How long have we been together now?
We've been together two days, Nick.
Will you treat me like a lady?
Bridget darling, just call me Gentleman Nick.
Let's see what sort of gentleman you are.
Here's a little test. Follow me.
Oh, come on, Ziggy, we'll be late.
Is just you and Ziggy doing this protest?
Yes, but when other people see how important
it is, they'll join us. We must stop…
- Oh, look! There's Ziggy. Must dash.
- This is not fun. This is serious.
I want you more…like David Beckham.
- Really, Bridget, I don't think…
You have a lot of anger in there.
Well, yes, I am wearing this stupid hair band.
So, we must work on your inner calm.
- Hello, Bridget. Where is Hector?
Do you remember Nick, Mrs Romero?
Come on, Nick, I'm taking you shopping.
- Oh? So you want some more acupuncture?
OK, OK, I'm coming, I'm coming.
I want you more like David Beckham.
Mother, when in London, we speak English.
Yes, we must. English is the language
of high class, so I must teach it…
- You must learn it, not teach it.
So your father has found you a wife.
He told me. He must stop shopping on eBay.
Look, Mum, I don't want a wife.
This girl is from a good family.
She's so clever, so kind, so happy!
Ziggy and I were in a field lying down.
Now, listen, Mum, I've told you I love Annie.
If you knew Annie, you would love her.
Well, I'm going home tomorrow.
Look, Mum, come to dinner tonight
and you will meet the real Annie.
And if you don't like her, then…
then I might marry the princess Dad has found.
- If that's OK with your mother.
Oh, Annie, she's gone to her hotel now.
Look, she's going home tomorrow
we would invite her to dinner tonight.
But you must do one thing for me.
So am I. Well, I can't put these
in the washing machine. They're filthy.
- When my mother comes to dinner.
Nick is pretending to be someone different.
Nick isn't pretending. This is the new Nick.
You can pretend to be what my mother wants.
What, Princess Caroline of Monaco?
As you can see, I'm a talented stylist.
Could I have some more cola, please, sweetie?
My mother is coming to dinner tonight.
What sort of food does your mother like?
I don't know. A traditional English dish.
I am not going to pretend to eat meat.
What about sweet and sour prawn balls?
And Nick will look after your mother
because he's such a gentleman now.
I will pretend to be the perfect girlfriend.
Your mother's right. Don't touch me!
- You can pretend to be what my mother wants.
What? Princess Caroline of Monaco?
Have you enjoyed your visit to London,
We often visit our friends, Liz and Phil.
Oh, you are so handsome, Nick.
Annie has had an interesting day today, haven't
tell Mother about your interesting day.
OK. Well, our GM protest went very well today.
- It means genetically modified.
Anyway, he told us to go away,
- Where did you learn your beautiful manners?
And then the police arrested us,
but I escaped prison so I could be here tonight.
So, Annie, Hector tells me you like animals.
Oh, I love them, but I don't eat them.
why are they made of meat, then?
Yes, the dogs, the handsome men in red coats.
You are not from a good family.
There's nothing wrong with my family.
I don't believe that Hector is your son.
You won't need hounds on a hunt.
When the fox sees you coming, he'll run!
Hector, I shall see you in Argentina
Well, that went rather well, didn't it!
- Oh, that's Charley. Charley belongs to A…
who's this Latin American princess?
Well, my father wants me to marry her,
Well, if you don't want her, I'll have her.
If your name's not on the guest list,
and Hector wants to be a tough guy.
