影片对白

monalisa smileBetty Warren: All her life she had wanted to teach at Wellesley College. So when a position opened in the Art History department, she pursued it single-mindedly until she was hired. It was whispered that Katherine Watson, a first year teacher from Oakland State, made up in brains what she lacked in pedigree, which was why this Bohemian from California was on her way to the most conservative college in the nation...

Katherine Watson: Excuse me, the bus?

Train Attendant: Keep walking, ma'am.

Katherine: Thank you.

Betty: ...But Katherine Watson didn't come to Wellesley to fit in. She came to Wellesley because she wanted to make a difference.

Bill Dunbar: Violet.

Violet: My favorite Italian professor.

Bill: Nice summer?

Violet: Terrific! Thanks!

Bill: Who's that over there?

Violet: Where? Oh, Katherine Watson, new teacher, Art History. I'm dying to meet her.

President: Who knocks at the door of Learning?

Joan Brandwyn: I am every Woman. 

President: What do you seek?

Joan: To awaken my spirit through hard work and dedicate my life to knowledge.

President: Then you are Welcome. All women who seek to follow you can enter here. I now declare the academic year begun.

妙词佳句,活学活用

1. pedigree

这是一个相对比较正式的单词,意思一般是“出身;家族;血统;门第”等。当然在指动物时一般是指“纯种”。这种词在题材相对严肃的影片中比较容易遇到。给大家举几个例子以便更容易记住它:
1) A penniless lass with a long pedigree and a sweet face, she had been raised by a scheming aunt to find a million dollars and marry it.
这位小姑娘虽然一贫如洗,却是世家出身,由姑母抚养大,长得俏丽动人。这位长辈颇有心计,一心想让侄女嫁个百万富翁。
2)He comes from a family of pedigree.
他出身名门。
