  • DAD
    Hello? 992846.
    HANNAH
    Dad? Is that you?

    DAD
    Hannah?
    HANNAH
    Dad. I'm phoning ...

    DAD
    The line isn't very clear.
    HANNAH
    Yes, I know, I'm on a mobile and the signal isn't very good. I'll see if I can move ... is that any better?

    DAD
    Yes. That's much better. Just don't move.
    HANNAH
    I'll try not to.

    DAD
    Have you found a place to live yet?
    HANNAH
    Yes! I think I have at last.

    DAD
    Wonderful!
    HANNAH
    I'm relieved, because I'm fed up looking. I didn't think it was going to take me three weeksQ1.

    DAD
    It hasn't been easy for you. I suppose it's the beginning of the academic year and you have all the new students looking for places as well.
    HANNAH
    Yes, that's one reason. But this place is also full of new technology companiesQ2 and there are lots of young people looking for somewhere to live. And you know what that means?

    DAD
    Higher rents as well.
    HANNAH
    Yes. Much higher.

    DAD
    Well, tell me, how much is it?
    HANNAH
    It isn't cheap for this areaQ3. It's 400 pounds a month.

    DAD
    That is much more than you had expected.
    HANNAH
    Yes, it is, but I can't face looking any more. I want a place where I can put my things, instead of living out of a suitcase. I don't want to stay in this hotelQ4 any longer.

    DAD
    I guess not. So what's the new place like?
    HANNAH
    Oh, it's really, really nice.

    DAD
    Oh, good.
    HANNAH
    It's in a very quiet street. It's a second-floor flatQ5 with one double bedroom, a large living room, kitchen and toilet and bathroom.

    DAD
    Sounds very nice.
    HANNAH
    Oh it is. And guess what?

    DAD
    Yes?
    HANNAH
    It's got a small roof terrace looking on to the garden at the back.

    DAD
    Great.
    HANNAH
    And it's big enough to have my plants and a small table and chairs.

    DAD
    Brilliant.

    DAD
    Now, what's the address?
    HANNAH
    It's 22bQ6 Whitehart Road.

    DAD
    22e.
    HANNAH
    No, 22b. B for ... banana.

    DAD
    Right. And it's Whitehart Road.
    HANNAH
    Yes.

    DAD
    And the postcode?
    HANNAH
    You know, I don' t think ... I've ... got it.

    DAD
    Okay.
    HANNAH
    No ... here it is. It's EX15 9RJ

    DAD
    This line is bad. Is that EX50?
    HANNAH
    No it's EX15Q7.

    DAD
    Okay. I don't think I know the road.
    HANNAH
    It's a side road. But you do know the area because it's off Garret Lane.

    DAD
    Oh right. Which end?
    HANNAH
    The other end from the stadium.

    DAD
    So it won't be too noisy then.
    HANNAH
    You can still hear it from here when there's a match on.

    DAD
    Mmm. When are we going to see you?
    HANNAH
    Well, I was going to come down on Friday evening after workQ8. And then we could bring my things by van on Saturday afternoon. I want to move all of my stuff out to give you and Mum more space.

    DAD
    We'll need to hire a van then.
    HANNAH
    It's okay. I'll pay for it.

    DAD
    No. No. Don' t worry. It'll be a gift from your Mum and me.
    HANNAH
    Oh, Dad. It's okay I ...

    DAD
    No, I won't hear of it. We'll pay.
    HANNAH
    Oh, all right. Thanks, Dad.

    DAD
    And if you're taking everything we might need to hire a container lorry.
    HANNAH
    Oh, Dad!!

    DAD
    I'm only joking.
    HANNAH
    I know.

    DAD
    I'll hire the van for the Saturday then. I can pick it up first thing in the morning.
    HANNAH
    Right.

    DAD
    And then return it in the eveningQ9.
    HANNAH
    Are you sure you don' t want to stay overnight?

    DAD
    No, I'd best get back the same day. You know what your Mum's like. She'll only worry. If I remember rightly, it's about three hoursQ10 by road?
    HANNAH
    Yes, roughly.

    DAD
    Well, if we leave by lunch time, we'll be there mid-afternoon.
    HANNAH
    Okay.

    DAD
    Then a couple of hours to unpack.
    HANNAH
    Then ...

    DAD
    We could go to a nice restaurant round the corner.
    HANNAH
    Definitely. My treat!

    DAD
    You're on. But I'll have to be away by about seven-thirtyish.
    HANNAH
    Okay.

    DAD
    Right then. Ahm ... Mum wants to have a word. I'll see you Friday.
    HANNAH
    Bye, Dad.

    DAD
    I'll hand you over to her ... bye.
