hear the neighbors' phone.
Laurance-Well, I'm expecting an important phone call, and
I don't want to miss it.
Soony- Is it anything I should know about?
Laurance-Not really. It has something to do with work and
doesn't really affect us here at home.
Soony- Well, why don't you go ahead and do what you wanted
to do outside. I'll call you if the phone rings for you.
