Woman: Excuse me?

Man: I said nice pants.

Woman: You can’t see my pants, can you?

Man: Of course I can.

Woman: How can you see my pants?

Man: They’re on your legs!

Woman: Ha. You haven’t been to America recently, have you?

Man: Oh I er …I er actually just got back from LA! That’s “Los Angeles” by the way....

Woman: I know.

Man: Yeah, I picked up some of the American words, and now I forget which ones to use! So confusing!

Woman: We call these “trousers” in Britain.

Man: Of course we do...you know there are so many things …that’s it’s exactly a completely different language sometimes!

Woman: Really?

Man: Yeah!

Woman: Would you like a crisp?

Man: Crisps? In the States, they’re “chips”!

Woman: Oh. So if I want to order our chips in America, what do I ask for?

Man: French fries!

Woman: I see.

Man: And you know what that is, don’t you?

Woman: A fizzy drink.

Man: That’s a “soda”!

Woman: Hmm…

Man: You know the lift over there?

Woman: Yeah?

Man: That’s an elevator.

Woman: Oh really?

Man: You know in the States, you don’t go to watch a film...

Woman: You “watch a movie”!
