Scene : A man and his wife are arguing. The man is drunk. The wife is angry. "Glub-glub" is the man's nick-name.

 

+ Is there soju in that glass?

- No, of course not. It's water.

+ But you never drink water.

- What do you mean, I never drink water?

+ Glub-glub, I've watched you for ten years. You never drink water.

- I always knew you were a spy. Anyway, you're wrong.

+ What do you mean I'm a spy?

- You are sneaky. You watch me.

+ Glub-glub, you are breathing soju fumes.

- What do you mean I'm breathing soju fumes?

+ If I light a match under your nose, you'll catch alight.

- Go away spy! Leave my water alone.

+ What's that bottle behind your chair?

- It's mineral water. Go away!

+ What do you mean it's mineral water? Let me see it.

- Mind your own business.

+ Alright, goodbye. I'm going.

- Good riddance, spy.

+ I'm taking the car. I have the keys.

- What do you mean, you are taking the car? It's MY car.

+ You can't drive. Glub-glub, you are too drunk to walk!

- What do you mean, I can't walk. Just let me finish this water and I'll run.

+ Catch me if you can Glub-glub. Goodbye!
