Jim: We only have three minutes before the movie starts. You grab two seats and I’ll hit the concession stand.
Suki: Can I help you?
Jim: Yes, I’d like a large popcorn and a hot dog with the works.
Suki: Anything else?
Jim: Yes, I’ll also take an order of nachos and a pretzel.
Suki: Sorry, we’re out of pretzels right now, but we have cotton candy, snow cones, and pizza.
Jim: All right, then give me a slice of pizza.
Suki: Will that be all?
Jim: No, I’d also like a box of licorice, a package of beef jerky, and an ice cream sandwich.
Suki: Anything to drink?
Jim: Yes, I’ll take two large sodas.
Suki: All right, that’ll be $84.50.
Jim: What?! That’s highway robbery!
Suki: Our prices are posted on the board. You can see them right up there. Do you still want all this?
Jim: Just give me the soda and popcorn.
Suki: Are you sure you’ll make it through the movie with just that?
Jim: I have no choice. I’d have to commit robbery if I wanted anything else!
