  • MIKE: OK. How about a pool? At your sister's place, there's a pool, right? You're (going to) (want to) find a place that has one too, (aren't you) .

  • ARON: I (don't know) . I (have to) find a cheap apartment. All the apartments with pools seem out of my price range.

  • MIKE: OK. (Don't you) worry. I'm sure you will find just what you're looking for sooner or later. You just (have to) be patient.

  • ARON: Thanks Mike. I will.
