Are you trying to —— me?

I heard a brilliant ad on Classic FM radio this morning on the way in to work.

Anne Bancroft: Please wait till my husband gets home.

Dustin Hoffman: When is he coming back?

Anne Bancroft: My husband will be back quite late. He should be gone for several hours.

Dustin Hoffman: Oh my god.

Anne Bancroft: Pardon?

Dustin Hoffman: Oh no, Mrs. Robinson, oh no.

Anne Bancroft: What’s wrong?

Dustin Hoffman: Mrs. Robinson, you didn’t – I mean, you didn’t expect –

Anne Bancroft: What?

Dustin Hoffman: I mean, you didn’t really think that I would do something like that.

Anne Bancroft: Like what?

Dustin Hoffman: What do you think?

Anne Bancroft: Well, I don’t know.

Dustin Hoffman: For God’s sake, Mrs. Robinson, here we are, you’ve got me into your house. You give me a drink. You put on Classic FM.

Anne Bancroft: So?

Dustin Hoffman: Mrs. Robinson – you are trying to relax me …. Aren’t you?

Ha ha!

(Disclaimer: I obviously didn’t remember the radio ad verbatim so I nicked the original film dialogue from Wikiquotes. Equally obviously it wasn’t Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman doing the ad but voice-actors.)
