影片对白

Mary Alice Young: When I was alive, I maintained many different identities: lover, wife, and ultimately, victim. Yes, labels are important to the living. They dictate how people see themselves. Like my friend, Lynette. She used to see herself as a career woman. And a hugely successful one at that. She was known for her power lunches... her eye-catching presentations... and her ruthlessness in wiping out the competition. Lynette gave up her career to assume a new label: incredibly satisfying role of full-time mother.

Lynette: Scavo residence. Yes, this is me.

Mary Alice Young: But, unfortunately for Lynette, this new label frequently fell short of what was advertised.

Lynette: How in the world did they... 

Ms. Butters: I left the door to the art supply cupboard open for five minutes. That's all.

Lynette: Five minutes. The little girl. Why didn't she say anything?

Ms. Butters: Your boys work quickly.

Lynette: Well, obviously, they will be punished for this. Severely.

Ms. Butters: I hesitate bringing this up since you got so ugly about it last time.

Lynette: They don't have attention deficit disorder. And I'm not going to drug my boys just to make your job easier. I'd rather change teachers.

Ms. Butters: The boys are in my class because I'm the only teacher who can handle them.

Lynette: What if we separate the twins? Put them in different classes. They're much calmer when they're not bouncing off one another.

Ms. Butters: We can try that. But if it doesn't work, we may not longer be able to accommodate them.

Mary Alice Young: It suddenly occurred to Lynette her label was about to change yet again. And for the next few years, she would be known as the mother of the boys who painted Tiffany Axelrod blue.

Mary Alice Young: It looked to be an interesting afternoon on Wisteria Lane. A mysterious cassette tape had been discovered by my friend, Bree. She had stolen it from her marriage counselor. A counselor I'd once spoken to in strictest confidence.

Dr. Goldfine: So, how have you been?

Mary Alice Young: I had the nightmare again.

Gabrielle: It's so weird to hear Mary Alice.

Dr. Goldfine: Still the same one.

Mary Alice: Yes. But this time, I was standing in a river, and I saw the girl under the water. She kept screaming Angela over and over again.

Dr. Goldfine: So what do you think the significance of the name Angela is?

Mary Alice: Actually, that's my real name.

Gabrielle: Her real name? That doesn't make any sense. I've seen her driver's license. It did not say Angela.

Susan: Bree, what does it say on the rest of the tape?

Bree: Just more about her nightmares and this girl she was afraid of.

Gabrielle: So what the hell do we do now?

Susan: I think we should show Paul the note.

Lynette: Are you sure? He's gonna freak.

Bree: Well, it's now or never. I mean, I saw what he's asking for the place. It's gonna sell quickly.

Gabrielle: Can I say something? I'm glad Paul's moving.

Bree: Gabby!

Gabrielle: I'm sorry. He's just always giving me the creeps. Haven't you guys noticed? He's got this dark thing going on. There's something about him that just feels...

Lynette: Malignant?

Gabrielle: Yes.

Susan: We've all sort of felt it.

Bree: That being said, I do love what he's done with that lawn.

妙语佳句,活学活用

1. Wipe out
想象一下,一块脏兮兮的玻璃,你用抹布,蘸上清洁剂,几下就抹得干干净净,和污渍的斗争大获全胜。引申为把对手“彻底击败,彻底消灭”。例如:The gangsters threatened to wipe him and his family out. 歹徒们威胁要把他和他的家人全部除掉。
