W: Hello, Steve?
M: Hi, Veronica. What's going on?
W: Oh, my car's having problems again,but I don't have the time or the money to get it fixed.
M: Is it really bad?
W: (1) _______________________________________,and two days ago I had to pull off the expressway and wait until the engine cooled down.
M: Have you taken it into a shop?
W: Well, I went to two different places yesterday;one mechanic said he'd check the coolant level and look for fluid leaks;the other guy said he thought it was the thermostat.(2) ___________________________,though, because I didn't have a ride back.
M: What are you going to do?
W: I really don't know. I'll have to figure out something;the bus service is terrible around where I live.Anyway, could I ask you for a favor?
M: Of course, what is it?
W: You know, tomorrow's Monday and we're supposed to turn in our homework in English,but I've only gotten halfway through it—I've just been too busy.If I came over, would you help me finish it?
M: Sure, I'll be here all evening.And actually I haven't finished the homework either;(3) ________________________________,so it's good you're coming over—I need someone to motivate me.
W: Thank you so much, Steve. It's so nice of you. See you later.
