Hassan: I want to be a stuntman.

Oliver: Then you absolutely get thousands of money.

Louise: I want to learn more about Robert Burns. I want to learn how he died. We used to learn it in P2 and I want to learn more.

Hassan: We just learned about three people - Robert Burns, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Mary Queen of Scot.

Oliver: Scots!

Hassan: They died because Robert Burns was too sick, Mary Queens of Scots got her head chopped off and Bonnie Prince Charlie ...

Oliver: Yeah, she got her head chopped off by a lawyer.

Hassan: Bonnie Prince Charlie, he died because he lost in a battle.

Oliver: No, because a lady took him and he had to dress up in her clothes. I want to learn about lizards, frogs, all those little things.

Louise: I don't want to learn about maths.

Hassan: Oh, I don't want to learn about maths.
