Varianta original
Fear.
Jake: Gosh! My tooth has been killing me.
Anna: You might have a cavity. You should go to the dentist as soon as possible.
Jake: No way. I'm afraid of seeing the dentist. I always get a bad feeling. I try to avoid it like the
plague.
Anna: Come on. Don't be a chicken! It won't be that bad!
Jake: I'm not a chicken! But I'll do anything to stay away from a dental clinic.
Anna: Even let the cavity eat your whole tooth?
Jake: Dentists scare me more than the cavity.
Anna: You can't be serious!

Anxiety.
Joanne: Hey, you look very upset. What's going on?
Harry: I'm anxious about the final exams. I don't know if I can pass them.
Joanne: Aren't you studying?
Harry: I am! But I don't take exams well. I always panic.
Joanne: Well, don't worry too much. You still have three days ahead.
Harry: Yeah, but three days aren't enough to cover the entire syllabus. These days will be gone in the
blink of an eye.
Joanne: I think the best thing to do now is try to remain calm.
Jealousy and Anger.
Jake: What's happening between your girlfriend and you? You guys fight all the time these days.
Harry: What are you saying?
Jake: Well, the whole office is talking about it. Why do you fight in public places?
Harry: I can't stand her anymore. She's a crazy woman. Even a bit of friendly advice sets her off.
Jake: So, what did you tell her?
Harry:I told her she had to stay away from the new assistant manager. He's not a nice guy to hang
around. She thought I was being jealous of her friendship with him. Can you believe that?!
Jake: Well, I can. You do sound a bit jealous.
Harry: And you sound like her!
Suspicion.
Anna: Why were you oddly looking at him while he was talking?
Joanne: Well, I'm sure he lied to me about last night. I was trying to read his face.
Anna: Why do you say that?
Joanne: He wasn't looking at me while talking. I'm sure he was hiding something.
Anna: Well, you shouldn't be so suspicious of people. Just relax and stop thinking that there's always
something wrong!
Joanne: Perhaps you're right. Maybe I think too much about things.
