B: You're welcome.
A: Thanks, Dick, for helping me with my English.

B: Well, I think I should take your advice this time. You have been very helpful. Thanks.
A: Good morning. I would like to read some novels in the original to improve my English. What books would you recommend?

A: Really? Is it going to rain?
B: He said that there would be 60 percent chance of rain this afternoon, and it would be windy, too.
A: Well, I think I shall take my umbrella with me just in case it rains.
A: Brrrr! I'm cold, I thought it was supposed to get warmer today.
B: Yeah, I thought so, too. That's what the weatherman said.
A: It must be the wind that makes it feel so cold. I'm freezing!

B: Yes, My classmates will be waiting for me at 8:
  30.

A: That sounds quite reasonable. Do you need a deposit?
B: Yes, the contract calls for a deposit of 10 dollars. It'll be credited to your final bill.
A: I see. I'd like to rent a compact car.
B: We have some VWs.
A: That will be fine. Do I turn in the car at this office?
B: If you want to. But we have offices throughout the states. You can turn in the car at any of the offices.
A: Great! There is the information desk... How do we get to the 65th street, please?

A: What's the fare?
B: A dollar sixty.
A: Which way do we go for the York Line?
