Emma: Where can we get some more wa­ter? Ricky: There’s a pump down the road. Take the con­tainer hooked on the back of the truck with you.

Emma: This job will be a snap. I’ll show you that I’m no­body’s fool.

(Emma re­turns from fetch­ing the wa­ter.): I’m back. Ricky: What were you do­ing on the way back? The con­tainer is half empty.

Emma: What? Hey! You sent me on a fool’s er­rand. This con­tainer has a hole in the bot­tom!

Ricky Sorry about that. I hope your shoes aren’t soaked.

Ex­pla­na­tion: No­body’s fool - not stupid Ex­am­ple: You can’t put any­thing over on Ryan – he’s no­body’s fool.
