(At the Browns' house)
Dad: Let's do some shopping for our trip to the USA next week.
Amy: Great! I need a new pair of pants and a sweater.
Meg: Hey! It's my turn to buy new clothes! I can't wait to try on the pink jacket at Bruno's Department Store.
Dad: We will shop for clothes, but not for you girls. I plan to buy a qipao for Grandma's dog, Skippy.
Meg: What? Why does Skippy need a qipao?
Dad: She'll join the pet contest in Roswell.
(Meg is looking at a red qipao.)
Meg: This qipao has a nice color. It'll look great on Skippy.
Dad: How much does it cost?
Amy: It costs two thousand dollars.
Meg: It's not a bad price. Can we take it, Dad?
Dad: I don't think so. I'm not going to spend that much money on a pet costume.
Amy: Dad's right. What are we going to do next?
Dad: We're going to buy some drinks ﬁrst. I'm tired and thirsty.
