“Nobody’s bought the dress yet?” Said Dave from the doorway.
“Not yet, Mr. Parker,” replied Iris, working at the counter.
“It’s a great dress.”
“It certainly is.”

“That’s great, Mr. Parker.”
“That dress is magical. It could make a lady out of anything.”
As Dave left the shop, he glanced at the mannequin wearing Gloria’s dress.
