Location, location, locomotion!
Good morning, sir, and and congratulations on your new restaurant!
Thank you! You’re my first customers.
We’d like your finest table.
You must sit over here, then. It has our very best view!
Thank you. View of what?
Why, these long metal things with wooden cross-ties. It’s quite a phenomenon – they seem to stretch out forever! Plus, if you enjoy background music you can hear a whistle off in the distance!
You haven’t been here long, have you? Maybe we’ll move over to…
STAY! I insist! You shall have our two-hour breakfast special! Chew! Chew!
