Six people are talking about two pie shops in a TV program.

Lily: I’ve been going to Pie House for twenty years. Now Marie’s son is taking care of the business, and he makes pie as good as his mother’s.

Olive: I went to Pie Corner once. Their pie were great, too. But I feel more comfortable at Pie House.

Ned: Uncle Roy used to work for my mom, later he opened Pie Corner on the next block after he got married.

Marie: Roy was already quite avant-garde when working with me. I mean he had different, sometimes even strange, ideas about pies. There were times I thought his pies wouldn’t taste good, but they turned out magically delicious.

Lee: Ned has done quite well with Pie House. His pies make you feel warm. But if you want to try something interesting, you should go to Pie Corner.

Chuck: If eating Roy’s pies is like taking an exciting trip, then Ned’s pies are just like a sweet home you go back to after a long trip.
