  4. 4. Romance 7.4 Reading and writing Unit7 1 Read this dialogue between the famous gangsters Al Capone and Bugs Moran. Then decide who says what. BUGS MORAN: Everybody thinks Valentine’s Day is supposed to be romantic, right? Everyone loving each other and sending flowers and everything! Well, I tell you, in the cold snowy morning of February 14, 1929, I didn’t feel that anyone loved me! AL CAPONE: Yeah, the most famous Valentine’s Day present in history — and I nearly got you, too! I still don’t know how you escaped! BM: Well, that’s a secret, and I’m not going to tell you after all these years. AC: But my plan was so perfect. My right-hand man, Jack ‘Machine Gun’ McGurn had planned everything. BM: Yes, your men had convinced me to go to a warehouse in North Clark Street in Chicago. We thought we could get some illegal whisky. I should have known the price was too good to be true! AC: Well, you fell for the trick — perhaps you were a little too greedy in those days. And my men were waiting for you … BM: Yes, I admit it was a good plan. They were all dressed as policemen, and my men thought they were going to be arrested because of the whisky. But instead your men shot all my men — seven of them. AC: And all the time I was on the beach in Miami! BM: Yes, the police never arrested anyone, but I knew it was you! AC: OK, I admit it was me. So, now are you going to tell me how you got away? BM: Let’s just say I’m glad the traffic was bad that morning ... Who says… Al or Bugs? a the weather was very bad? Bugs b he didn’t think anyone loved him? c he doesn’t know what happened to the other man? d the plan was very good? e it was his men who committed the murders? f he was on holiday when it happened? g nobody was caught for the crime? h he had transport problems? © Richmond Publishing, 2004 PHOTOCOPIABLE 35
