Donny: Come on, we need to buy our subway tickets at that ticket machine.
Cayla: Why can’t we just get them at the ticket window? I’m not sure what the fare is.
Donny: There’s a long line and we need to catch a train right now.
Cayla: I’ve never taken the subway before. I don’t know how it works.
Donny: Just follow me. Here, take this card and walk through the turnstile. Put your card in this slot and then retrieve it as you pass through.
Cayla: Okay, now where do we go?
Donny: Let’s look at this subway map showing all of the lines. That’s the station we want.
Cayla: Don’t we need to get transfers?
Donny: We don’t need transfers to take connecting trains. Let’s see, we want the express, not the local train...
Cayla: Are you sure we shouldn’t just ask somebody, like a station agent?
Donny: Good luck finding one. And plus, I don’t need one. I can figure it out. Follow me. I think that’s the right platform.
Cayla: Are you sure that’s the right train?
Donny: Yes, and if you ask me another question, you can continue this conversation with those tracks!
