What did you have in mind? A day trip to Atlantic City by train. The casinos are fun. A boat trip around Manhattan. The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and all the bridges! The Metropolitan Museum of Art. And the Cloisters. Well, he must have forgotten. When will you be here? You won't get that for less than two hundred dollars. How does Shakespeare translate into Japanese? No, I enjoy it. It's my hometown. JFK will be packed!

I'm not really sure.

But I'm not sure I'll have time for that, unless I can reschedule a couple of meetings. I'll see what I can do for you. That shouldn't be too hard to organize. That shouldn't be necessary. I'm sure we can work around your schedule. Miss Peking is supposed to be very good. There aren't any good hotels around here. How does Shakespeare translate into Japanese? O.K. Have a safe trip. We always use a company called "See New York".

Could you? Really? Really?

I'm not really sure.

I'd appreciate that. Also, I'm hoping to get away to the country after taking care of business. Can you recommend anything? The Catskills are a favorite of mine. The scenery up there is just gorgeous. Cape Cod is worth a visit. I'm sure you'd love the beaches. Maine is quite beautiful at this time of year. That sounds wonderful! We could get you a ticket for Tosca at the Met. Well, it'll be nice to meet her too.

That sounds interesting.

That sounds interesting.

That sounds interesting.

She's really looking forward to the trip.

I think the Johnson would be your best bet. Hello, can I help you?

Is there anything I could bring you from Japan, as a way of saying thank you? Honestly, it's a pleasure to help out. I'm just happy being able to help. You don't have to go to any trouble. The Central Hotel should fit the bill. Miss Peking is supposed to be very good. How does Shakespeare translate into Japanese? In that case, we're talking two hundred dollars a night. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. And the Cloisters.

No, I insist. No, I insist. No, I insist.

After all, you're doing so much for my wife and me. It's only natural. Well, I wouldn't mind a couple of video games. An anthology of Basho's poetry would be wonderful. I like Rumiko Takahashi's work. I wouldn't mind her latest manga. Got it. Which terminal are you arriving at? If you like, I can show you around the city myself. I'm looking forward to meeting you, Mr. Yamamoto. I'll see what I can do for you. I think the Johnson would be your best bet.

Email me your console reference and I'll see what I can do. Yes, I heard you liked haiku. I'll see what I can do. Yes, she's very popular in the States. I'll see what I can do.

Likewise. Could you?
