A: I’m going this show next week that Whoopi Goldberg is in.
B: Do you know what it’s called?
A: No. Someone from work organized it. I mean, it’s not like work is paying for it, but…oh here. Xanadu.
B. Xanadu? Are you sure?
A. Yeah.
B. You know who was in the movie, don’t you? Olivia Newton John. Is Whoopi in the lead?
A. I’m sure she would be.
B. Wow. She is a far, far cry from Olivia Newton John.
