DAVID: "Hi Joe. Why are you taking all of your books home?"

DAVID: "Where are you going?"
JOE: "To Disneyland, the amusement park in California."
DAVID: "I know where it is. I've been there before. It's a fun place."
JOE: "This will be my first trip. I'm excited."
DAVID: "There are a lot of fun roller coasters to ride on."
JOE: "My mom can't go on them. She has motion sickness."
