Scene: The front of an Italian restaurant. There is a big sign in the window saying: TODAY - ALL THE PASTA YOU CAN EAT FOR £2.50.
The owner is standing in front of the shop. He is moustauchioed and smiling, the stereotypical Italian restaurateur. Two young men approach the door; he smiles at them and opens the door.
Owner: (In thick Italian accent) GOOD AFTERNOON, GENTLEMEN.
(Two middle aged men walk up to the door talking to each other; they are wearing suits. The owner opens the door for them).
Owner: GOOD AFTERNOON, GENTLEMEN.
(A young couple walk up to the door arm in arm. The owner opens the door for them).
Owner: GOOD AFTERNOON SIR, MADAM.
(The owner stands smiling for a few seconds, then his eyes bulge and his face becomes a mask of horror. He rushes into the restaurant, puts up a closed sign, and stares through the window. The scene changes to a road shot. A coach has just pulled up. On the side is emblazoned the legend: JAPANESE NATIONAL SUMO TEAM: WORLD TOUR. A number of giant sumo wrestlers have already left the coach and are walking quickly towards the restaurant. [Alternatively it can be a coach with KENT WEIGHT GAINERS CLUB written on the side, etc]).
