Narrator: Later, they're sitting on the terrace of a café.
Daniel: I'm inviting you. What are you having?
Julie: I’d like a strawberry tart.
Daniel: That looks good. And to drink?
Julie: An orange juice.
Daniel: I am going to have an espresso. Sir!
Waiter: Yes. What can I serve you?
Daniel: Two strawberry tarts, please.
