Dialogue 16

laurance--Can you get a baby-sitter for tonight?
soony--I don't know.Why?
laurance--Well,I thought we could go out for dinner
          and then go to a movie afterward.
soony--I can call Debbie and see if she's available.
       She usually doesn't like to sit during the week,
       but she might make an exception.
laurance--Well,do that,and then call me at the office if
          you have any luck.
soony--Okay,but don't get your hopes too high.It's hard
       to find a good baby-sitter these days.
