On camera: Wearing casual clothes and with bags slung over their shoulders, Caleb and Katie wander into Katie's flat.

Noise: Water dripping steadily.

Caleb to Katie: I just don't want to fail the assignment, that's all.

On camera: Caleb stares at a large yellow bucket on a table which is catching a steady stream of water from above.

Katie to Caleb: Well, this is it...

On camera: Katie's forced smile begins to fade.

Caleb to Katie: Whoa, that’s a leak.

On camera: Water dripping from the bucket seeps off the wooden table into a stainless steel pot which sits on the carpet.

Katie to Caleb: Oh, yeah. We had to put a bucket under the leak, and then the bucket got a leak, so then we had to put another pot under that.

On camera: Caleb's brow furrows as he stares at the pot which has drips splashing into it.

Caleb to Katie: Should we just go and see your room, then?

Katie to Caleb: This is my room.

On camera: Clutching textbooks to her chest, Katie looks hopefully at Caleb, whose eyes widen.

Caleb to Katie: Oh. Cool, cool.

Katie turns to the camera: Just wait until he sees the bathroom.

Energetic pop music.
