Grandpa: Hello. Hello there. Are you ready for lunch with your grandpa?
Susan: Oh! Hi, Grandpa. Yes, of course, I am, but my mind isn't.
Grandpa: What's the matter, Susan?
Susan: A real dilemma.
Grandpa: Does it have anything to do with you and Harry?
Susan: Yes, but I don't know where to start.
Grandpa: Maybe I can help. Tell me what it is, Susan.
Susan: Thanks, Grandpa. Please sit down, Oh! Harry has been offered a job in Los Angeles.
Grandpa: Well, this something to think about.
Susan: There are so many things to consider. There's Michelle. I wonder if a move would be a bad thing for her. And my job. I don't know if I can get a good job in Los Angeles. And what about our family?
Grandpa: Can I tell you what I think?
Susan: Tell me.
Grandpa: I think that you're very successful and that you have a fantastic reputation in the toy industry. I think you could talk to Mr. Marchetta, and I think he could help you find a real good job in Los Angeles. He was very helpful to me, remember?
Susan: I suppose I could call him. But I'm not so sure that I want to leave New York, you, and the rest of our family.
Grandpa: Well, I'm not going to kid you, Susan. You know we'd all miss you. But this should be your decision. It's something that only you and Harry can work out.
Susan: If moving to L.A.is in Harry's best interest, I have to do what I can do to support him.
Grandpa: In every marriage, sacrifices have to be made by one partner from time to time.
Susan: And what about Michelle?
Grandpa: Well, What do you think?
Susan: I think Michelle is better off staying where she is.
Grandpa: What does she think?
Susan: I don't know for sure.
Grandpa: Well, you'll have to ask her.
Susan: I think I'm going to have a talk with Mr. Marchetta and get his feelings about my leaving. And about helping me find a job in Los Angeles.
Grandpa: Good idea.
Susan: I'll call him right now. No point in delaying. Thanks.Grandpa.
Bill: Harry, it's the perfect job for you. You'll love it.
Harry: It's a big decision for me, Bill. And I have to discuss it with my wife. I don't know if it's right for her.
BIll: She'll love it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime offer, Harry.
Harry: OK. Tell it to me again.
BIll: The company is Craft and Craft, the biggest accounting company in the country.
Harry: I know the company well. It's big.
Bill: The biggest.
Harry: Yeah, yeah. The biggest. When do I have to let you know?
Bill: Talk it over. Think it over. Let me know by the end of the week.
Harry: When would we have to move?
Bill: As soon as possible.
Harry: I also have my daughter to consider. I don't want to interrupt her school year.
Bill: Let me know by the end of the week. It's a great opportunity for you, Harry. Believe me.
Harry: I know.
BIll: Craft and Craft is the biggest in the country.
Harry: Yeah, I know. The biggest.
Susan: I think Michelle is asleep now. Let's talk.
Harry: I met with Bill York today.
Susan: And I talked with Mr. Marchetta. Did York make the offer?
Harry: Yup. He asked me if I want the job.
Susan: That's exciting, Harry. What was it?
Harry: A vice-presidency with the biggest accounting company in th country-Craft and Craft.
Susan: Aren't you excited about that?
Harry: Sure I am. But there's so much more to consider.
Susan: I talked to Mr. Marchtta.
Harry: What did he say? Did you tell him about me?
Susan: Of course, Harry. I want what's best for you, and I think I can get a good job through Mr. Marchetta inoios Amgeles also.
Harry: You're kidding.
Susan: No, I'm not kidding. I talked with him, and he understands completely. He has a major toy buyer in Los Angeles, and he's pretty sure that I can get a good job there.
Harry: Unbelievable!
Susan: But I think we should talk to Michelle about all of this.
Harry: You're right. We'll talk to her about it.
Susan: And how do you feel about taking the job in Los Angeles?
Harry: How should I feel? It's the biggest company in the country.
Susan: Well, then you feel good about taking it?
Harry: Well... I feel fine about it. Why shouldn't I?
