在这则对话中,Rocky Simons 是一家制造休闲快艇小公司的业主。他正和另外一个国家一家海滨度假地的业主Jacques Riviera在电话里交谈。

Rocky: 早上好,Jacques,很高兴又和你谈话。你们那儿的天气怎么样?

Jacques: 再好不过了,Rocky。晴朗,29度,微风……

Rocky: 别说了!我受不了了。我能为你做什么吗,

Jacques: 我需要两只你们生产的SB2000快艇租给游客。你能给我个报价吗?

Rocky: 让我想想……呃,报价单上是6,500美元。您是我们的一个重要客户,我会给你10%的折扣。


Rocky: 当然有!我们去年建立了新的存货控制系统,所以我们不再有很多的积压订单。


Rocky: 可以在2-3周内准备好装船。

Jacques: 棒极了。到岸价格是多少,Rocky?

Rocky: 稍等……价格是15,230美元,到原先的港口。成交吗?

Jacques: 当然!给我发一份所有相关信息的传真,我会立即下订单。我会按惯例以不可撤销信用单方式付款。按照一惯的条款吗?

Rocky: 当然。

Jacques: 好极了!很高兴再次和你做生意,Rocky。那再见了,带我问你家人好。

Rocky: 我会的,也带我问侯你家人。再见,Jacques.
