Esther: We'll need a big bird. I'd better order it this week.
Sidney: I just hope it fits in the oven this year. Do you remember...?
Esther: Don't remind me! Will you do the stuffing?
Sidney: Of course. That's my specialty.
Esther: And I need you to serve the drink, too.
Sidney: Ah, yes. We need some booze. What will people be drinking?
Esther: Everything. And don't forget the port for Uncle Maurice.
4 Over the Moon 乐疯了
Jenny is showing her sister Susan what she's bought for Amelia.
Jenny: I've got her these earrings. I hope she'll like them.
Susan: Oh, she'll love them.
Jenny: They go in this little box.
Susan: She's been going on about getting jewellery for weeks. She'll be over the moon. They'll be her favourite present, I'm sure.
Jenny: Well, it's nothing special.
Susan: No, they're lovely. There isn't a necklace that goes with them, too, is there?
5 Buying Nothing 无消费
Sarah is on the phone to her sister Dinah.
Sarah: "Buy Nothing Day"? What's that?
Dinah: It's supposed to make you think about what you consume.
Sarah: That's silly. You still need to buy food, don't you?
Dinah: Yeah, but it's only one Saturday a year.
Sarah: Well, a friend of mine is buying her family a goat this Christmas.
Dinah: Did you say a goat?
