"Could we fly with them?" asked Dorothy.
He could not do that.
"Maybe we could get a van," Carmen suggested.

Alex helped the man get the luggage into the trunk and then hurried to assist Carmen into the car before the man could touch her.
We could say he has excellent taste.
The doctor thought I could not live.
