In her room, ANNE is looking through some wine catalogues. The PHONE rings.

Oh, Steve! Hello Steve.
STEVE Hi. What are you doing?
ANNE Oh, working. I’m planning a trip to the wineries later in the week.
STEVE Oh. When are you going?
STEVE Oh, good. What are you doing tomorrow?
ANNE Nothing. Why?
STEVE Well I have the day off, and I was just wondering... well I was just wondering whether you wanted to go to a wildlife park... with me. You said you’d like to go to the zoo.
ANNE That’s right, I did. Yes, thankyou Steve, I’d love to go.
STEVE Alright! I’ll meet you in the foyer. Ten o’clock?
ANNE Okay, ten. I’ll see you then.
