"What was it?"

"...umm, it had something to do with...uhh, something about my...dang it, it was important too...Can you help me?"

"Why don't you sit here with me for a few minutes and think about it. Maybe that'll help you remember it. Your purse maybe?"

"No, I left it at...somewhere...not here...uhh..."

"Oh, gosh yes...uhh...he and I...uhh...had five, or was it nine. Sometimes it escapes me."

"Hi, give me two orange juices please, and keep an eye on her while I make a 911 call."

"Right."

"Hi, I'm in Rigg's park by the juice cart and there's a woman here who's very confused...I'm Dan...yeah, I'll wait."
