How do you make the lemonade?
ELINOR: Real lemons, real sugar, and ice.
Do you sell anything else?
ELINOR: We sometimes tell people’s fortunes.
What kinds of fortunes?
ELINOR: We usually pick bad ones. Like this woman walked up and we said, “You’re going to grow a beard.”

OLIVER: In a jar, but you have to hide it under the table. Otherwise, they will say, “Oh, you already have too much money! We’re not going to buy lemonade!”
