(Splashing, pool sounds)
P: Yang Chen, do you know why we are at the swimming pool?
Y: We are going to talk about swimming.
P: But we aren't just talking about swimming. We are going to be talking about the Olympic sport of synchronized swimming.
Y: 花样游泳！！！Do we have to talk about it. Patrick?
P: Yes, we do. Synchronized swimming, Yang Chen. You know, the sport that combines swimming, gymnastics and dance. Why do you ask?
Y: 我特别不喜欢Synchronized swimming。What a dumb sport!
P: How can you say that, Yang Chen? Those swimmers work really hard to get their routines in perfect unison. It is a very demanding sport, requiring strength and artistry.
Y: Strength力量，artistry 艺术，少拿这些大词儿吓唬我。 It's a dumb sport.
P: Oh, come on, Yang Chen. It is like ballet in the water.
Y: 水上芭蕾？噢，这下我明白我为什么不喜欢Synchronized swimming了，因为我不喜欢芭蕾！
P: Well, then I guess I am just going to have to show you how demanding a sport synchronized swimming is. Let's try to synchronize some of our moves.
Y: Do we have to, Patrick?
P: Yes, Yang Chen. We have to. Okay-- Raise your right hand in the air,
P: Come on, raise it up, then reach down and touch your left foot .
Y: Ooooh, noooo! (Splash!) Help!
