Amanda:  Hey! Hey! Hey! Jason! Here! Oh my God! Sit down! Lay down, sit down, whatever.

Jason:  Oh, OK. Yeah.

Amanda:  Here. How’s it going?

Jason:  Uh, good.

Amanda:  I was just thinking about you…like, a lot.

Jason:  I haven’t seen you for a while. What’s up?

Amanda:  Not much. Do you want…do have somewhere to be or can you have a drink with me and some dinner and maybe hang out?

Jason:  I have to me somewhere in a minute, but I can hang out for a little bit, yeah.

Amanda:  A minute?

Jason:  Well, I mean, just in a little while, a few minutes.

Amanda:  OK. You look great because that coat is just very slimming and form-fitting. You look like you’ve been working out and stuff.

Jason:  I thought it was very “Thriller.”

Amanda:  Yeah, I can see that. Yeah. And the pants look great on you. I can see the definition in your legs.

Jason:  What are you doing here just hanging out on a…

Amanda:  You know. Just kind of thinking.

Jason:  Oh OK.

Amanda:  Kind of alone with my thoughts, so I thought I’d enjoy a pint and kind of take in the view and just clear my mind.

Jason:  That’s good. People don’t slow down enough to clear their minds.

Amanda:  I completely agree. Because there’s so much going on and you’re usually with somebody and how often are you by yourself?

Jason:  Totally. Just in the middle of the day…

Amanda:  Though I would totally pick hanging out with you over being by myself.

Jason:  Wow, thanks.

Amanda:  Just FYI. I wanted to put that out there. You look really good. Your hair is really thick today.

Jason:  Oh, wow. Thanks. That’s awesome. I worry about that.

Amanda:  You shouldn’t. Ever.

Jason:  I’ll grab a beer. I’ll be right back.

Amanda:  OK. Great. Hurry, OK?

Amanda is sitting at an outdoor table at a restaurant when Jason walks by. She flags him down and he says he can stay for a few minutes.

Amanda compliments everything from Jason’s hair to his jacket to his muscles. He laughs nervously because he’s not sure what’s going on.

Do you have any idea what’s going on? Is Amanda being nice or does she have an axe to grind? Should Amanda leave Mason for Jason? Is it wrong of her to be so flirty with him while she and Mason are still together?

Haha..the reaon for Amanda flirts with Jason just because she is fighting with Mason. She does not like Jason, but she might want Mason to feel jealousy or she just wants to relieve her bad mood due to the fighting between her and Mason.  Girls are just like that way. 

Anyway she has an axe to grind.

Well, I think the girl is fall in love thats why she flirting him alot ,yeah i know this is just a scene but thats happening in fact .I think the aim of this topic apart of enrich your vocabulary is to teach girls how to flirt when they want attracted someone, dont puch him to escape.

Amanda loves Jason~ anyway..I think there is wrong subtitle.  Isnt it correct 'be' instead of 'me' on the sentence of ''I have to me somewhere in a minute…''?

yeah, cool lesson :)

Ohhh Amanda falls in love with Jason. You can see it clearly. But this flirt is quite… boring. 'Ohh you are wonderful guy, u have nice jeans, nice coat, nice everything' ;] He should tell her some kind of compliments! ;]

I liked this lesson very much, Amanda is kind of desperate and everything goes for her. my students enjoyed the lesson. My students think that Amanda wants to be filled like an application form by Jason


Very funny

Actually when you said flirty it was not really mean bad. Sometimes people used to flirt just for fun not for something serious in this article or dialoge between amanda &  jayson it was just a simple conversation, amanda was just trying to compliment some thing about jayson she maybe tell  it in a flirty way but maybe for here it's a real thing. maybe he just notice a lot of changes to jayson anyway people are changing right? so i think thats what really happening to them. So dont just her guys im sure you love when girls used to flirt you. lol

I don't think it is a kind of Firty , and i also don't think Amanda haa a special axe to Janson .  It is just someone, when she is alone , She would like to find some pepole for chatting .
