F：Yes, you are. And this is your secretary, Jane Borromeo. She is a Filipina but was born and brought up here and is completely bilingual.
S：Hi. How do you do? Just holler if you need anything.
C：Thanks.（to Buchwald）She is a very attractive girl.
F：And capable, too.
C：Gee, my nameplate's already on the desk. Everything is so neat.
F：Feel free to drop by my office if you have a question.
C：Even a silly one?
F：How do you know it's silly if you haven't asked?
C：My former colleagues told me three secrets of success in foreign-affiliated companies. First, the ability to speak English well.
C：Second, an outgoing and sociable wife. And third, not getting involved in office politics.
F：I aGREe with the first and the last. You have to be careful when you step into the executive jungle and it's best to stay away from office politics, especially in a big organization like ours.
F：The English ability is helpful but you already have a fine command of it. I'm not so sure about the second.
F：I have a good idea. Why don't you bring your wife to our place for dinner next week? She can compare notes with my wife.
