It is seven sharp. Pete and David are in the lounge.
Pete: Good evening, David.
David: Good evening, Pete.
It is two minutes past seven. They see Nick.
Nick: Good evening. I'm late, I'm afraid. I do apologise.
David: Good evening. That's all right.
Pete: Good evening. Follow me please, gentlemen.
They go to the restaurant. The head waiter comes up to them and offers them one of the vacant tables.
Pete: Do you like this table, David?
David: It looks all right.
Pete: Then let's take it... Here is the menu...
David: Oh, it's in English too. How very nice.
Pete: What would you like to drink?
David: Gin and tonic for me, please.
Nick: And what would you like as a starter?
David: Your English is very good. Some cold fish, I think.
Nick: Thank you for the compliment. I'll tell my teacher about it. And what would you like as a hot meal?
David: Some meat and vegetables.
Pete: And here are our drinks... I'm very glad to see you in Moscow, David. I still remember my Christmas days in London. Now you are welcome to Moscow. To our good business!
David: I do hope our business will be beneficial for all of us.
