1. keep a low profile
所谓“做人要厚道，行事要低调”，keep a low profile 就是“Stay out
of public notice, avoid attracting attention to oneself.保持低调”。例如：
The government is trying to keep a low profile on this issue.
Keep a low profile until the trouble over your activities is past.
2. stick with
stick with 通常的意思是“坚持做……”，例如：
-Shall we change the plan? -No, we'll stick with the original one.'
-我们变动一下计划好吗? -不行, 我们要按原计划行事。
Hang on, can we stick with that point
而在这个片断中，stick with 的意思是stay with， John的意思是“他将继续和Danielle 谈恋爱”。
