Ben tries to get a reservation at a popular Korean restaurant -- a transcript

Woman who answers phone: [Incomprehensible Korean]

Me: Yes, I'd like to make a reservation for tonight.

Woman: Busy!

Me: Yes, that's why I'd like a reservation.

Woman: Dinner!

Me: Er, yes, for dinner.

Woman: Very busy tonight!

Me: Yes.

Woman: How many?

Me: Four.

Woman: Eight?

Me: Four. Four people.

Woman: Eight?

Me: No, just four.

Woman: What name?

Me: Ben.

Woman: Pao?

Me: Ben. B-E-N.

Woman: [uncomfortable silence]

Woman: What time you come?

Me: Eight fifteen.

Woman: Six?

Me: No, 8:15.

Woman: Six?

Me: No. How about 8 pm?

Woman: Six?

Me: Eight!

Woman: Ok, see you.

Excellent! And they had our reservation, which was good, because the place was packed.
