Francesca: (Phone rings) "Johnsons.
Robert: Hi it's Robert.
Francesca: Oh hi. Listen I'm running a little late, but I'll still be there.
Robert: I don't want this to sound the wrong way, but I'm wondering if this is such a good idea.
Robert: Yeah I had lunch in town today and I crossed paths with that Redfield woman."
Francesca: Oh, I guess you got the whole story.
Robert: Yeah, the cashier at the grocery store was most generous.
Francesca: Yeah, he's running for town crier next year.
Robert: I learned more about the Dellaney affair than I knew about my own marriage. If it's gonna be a problem for you to see me tonight, don't feel pressured to do so. I'm sometimes not too bright about other people's reactions and I wouldn't want you to be put in an uncompromising situation.
Francesca: Yeah I understand. It's very kind of you to think of that. Robert, I want to come. Ok? So I will meet you at the bridge like we planned so don't worry about the rest of it, I'm not.
Robert: Alright. I'll see you then.
Francesca: Ok. Bye.
