It is 7 o’clock in the evening. Whale is watching a soap opera on television; the soap opera is called Four Lovers in Vienna.
Hot Dog: What is the soap opera about, Whale?
Whale: It is about four couples and the challenges which they experience in life and their relationships.
Hot Dog: What kind of challenges?
Whale: Many kinds! In today’s episode, for example, one of the couples – Cedric and Blaire, are talking to each other about eloping because their parents are against their relationship.
Hot Dog: Why?
Whale: Because Cedric is from a well-to-do middle class family and Blaire is a working class girl who is employed by Cedric’s mother as a maid. Both their parents think that it would be best if they were in a relationship with somebody from their respective classes instead.
Hot Dog: Oh no!
Whale: Yes! Horrible, isn’t it?
Hot Dog: Yes, it is! So, how did Cedric and Blaire fall in love?
Whale: After Blaire worked in the house which Cedric lived in for four years, he began noticing that she is a very good maid. So, post that, Cedric began spending time with Blaire every evening and soon after that, the two developed feelings for each other and thus, started dating.
