Now let's see how Mr Bean does it...

Meeting in a cafe
Mr Bean is at a cafe with his colleague Mr Smith. They are sitting at a table. The waiter comes to take their order.
Waiter: Are you ready to order?
Mr Bean: Yes, I'd like a cup of coffee and a doughnut, please.
Waiter (to Mr Smith): And what would you like?
Mr Smith: Oh, I'll have a pot of tea and a slice of apple pie.
Waiter: Would you like cream with your pie?
Mr Smith: No, thank you. Could I have ice cream with it instead?
Waiter: Yes, of course.
Mr Bean: And may I have a glass of water too?
Waiter: Certainly.
