Brown Field, south of San Diego has an 8,000-foot runway offering multiple intersection departures for smaller aircraft (and exits for larger ones)...

Experimental: Brown Tower, experimental ###, holding short of 26R on Bravo. Running late and ready to go.

Tower: Experimental ### hold short landing traffic ... Citation on four mile final.

Experimental: Hold short 26R, ###.

Tower: Experimental ###, can you make room over there on Bravo for the Citation coming off the active?

Experimental: We'll pull off into the run-up area, ###.

Tower: Thank you.

Experimental: Yup. But if there's anything else we could do ... like if they decide their limo needs shining ... please find someone else.
