Show host: Good evening, C3PO! I´m glad to see you here at “Don´t be afraid of robots”! How are you today?
C3PO: Good evening, madam! Thanks for asking! I feel very well and I´m ready to answer all of your questions!
Show host: Great! So let´s begin. My first question is: How many languages do you speak?
C3PO: To be precise: 6, 000, 321.
Show host: Wooooow. That´s a lot! Tell us something in one of these languages!
C3PO: Quabbadida dab baba di bou.
Show host: Haha, that sounds like you´re vomiting oil!
C3PO: That was in no sense polite or funny, madam. You have to be respectful! The Quibbies are a very intelligent and hospitable species!

Show host: OK OK, it was worth a try. Haha. Unfortunately our time is up. The next guest is already waiting in front of the door.
C3PO: Now I am sad, madam. I could have told you so much about how I work. The cables, the oil, the-
Show host: That´s not necessary. I don´t think we need to know everything about you…But it was an honor to get to know you! Thank you very much! Applause for C3PO!
C3PO: I am profoundly emotional, madam! I wish you and the audience a very nice day! (C3PO leaves the stage.)
Show host: And now our next guest: He is big, he is black, he is mean, he is all metal. The father you never wanted to have. Here is Darth Vader…
