Carl: No. No means no. Bonjour.
Carl, I know it's you.
Carl: Oh. Hey, man. I was just about to call you. That's so weird. Had your number dialed, was about to press “send”. Did you block your number?
Peter: Yeah, I did. You never answer when I don't. So, what are you doing?
Carl: Oh, just hanging out in my apartment.
Peter: You did get my text, right?
Carl: What? Text? What?
Peter: We're all going out tonight.
Carl: Man, that sounds great. I wish I could join you. I'm just so jammed up. I'm totally off the grid, you know?
Peter: No, I don't at all.
Carl: I got a bunch of stuff going on. There's this thing I gotta do. Any other night would've been great. Darn it to heck.
Peter: Thing? What thing?
Carl: Thing, you know, just a thing. If I had my thing in front of me, I could tell you what it is...but I know there's a thing.
Peter: A thing. I don't think there's anything written down in your fake calendar.
Carl: No, it says specific things.
Peter: Specific things. Like "get in line at the video store "?
Carl: What? What are you talking about? I'm not at the video store. I'm in my apartment.
Peter: I can see you, Carl. I'm outside the video store.
Carl: That's not me.
Peter: It's not?
Carl: Oh, I know what's happening. There is this guy who looks just like me...who goes to a lot of the same stores I do. That's probably who you're seeing.
Peter: Wow, that's amazing...because his mouth is movingin exact sync with what you're saying. Carl, I know you're not saying anything. Carl, get outside. I know you're not talking.
Carl: All right.
Peter: Look who's here.
Carl: Hey. You.
Rooney: I don't believe it.
Rooney: Carl Allen. Never thought I'd see the day, my man.
Rooney: Thought you hung up the spurs, cowboy.
Carl: No, I just got a lot of stuff going on...some things I gotta do, issues pending, keep me pretty busy.
Rooney: Yeah? Oh, I hear you, player.
Peter: So we are really excited for you to be here, Carl...because we have an announcement to make. Honey, show him. Oops, there it is. Deal with it.
Lucy: We're engaged.
Carl: Oh, my God. Come on.
Carl: Big step, huh?
Peter: Yeah, it's a big step. It's a huge one.
Carl: Man. Moving fast. That's okay. What has it been, six months?
Lucy: Two years.
Carl: Oh, yeah. That's about right, then.
Peter: So anyway, we're gonna have an engagement party on the 21st.Open bar.
Rooney: Oh, you bastard. Always knows how to get me.
Peter: Nice. Carl, does that work for you?
Carl: Yeah, we'll figure it out.
Peter: What's there to figure out?
Carl: Oh, God, look who's here.
Peter: I'm not falling for that, Carl. What's to figure out?
Rooney: Carl, it’s an open bar. What's the problem?
Carl: I'm serious. Stephanie's at the bar.
Lucy: The Stephanie?
Carl: Yes, my ex-wife. She's at the bar.
Peter: Oh, God, that is Stephanie.
Rooney: Looks like she's with someone there too.
Carl: They seem to be thriving. Good, Good for her. Oh, look, they're touching each other's genitals. Isn't that amazing? I'm so glad I came out. Love it. Okay, you know what? I gotta go.
Peter: No. No. Carl, you're gonna stay. It's been three years. You can’t leave every time she comes around.
Carl: Totally unrelated. It has nothing to do with Stephanie...
Stephanie: Carl. Peter. Rooney.
Carl: Stephanie, guys.
1. Bonjour: 法语，“你好”。
2. Did you block your number: 你把来电号码屏蔽了？Peter故意这样做，因为他知道如果Carl看见是自己的手机号，他肯定不会接电话。
3. hang out: 闲荡，闲呆着。例如：
do a lot of hanging out in barrooms（常上酒吧泡着）
hang out还有“居住，住宿，经常出没” 的意思。例如：
Do you know where he hangs out?（你知道他住在什么地方？）
4. jammed up: 表示因为压力而感到焦虑和紧张。请看例子：
The stress of this golf tournament has Keith all jammed up.
5. off the grid: 没有上社交网（例如facebook之类）。影片中Carl指他忙得都没时间和朋友交流了。
6. Darn it to heck: 真见鬼，该死！darn的意思是“该死”，是damn一词的委婉表达。heck则是hell的委婉表达，在感叹句中加强语气，表示诅咒、恼怒、厌烦等，可翻译为“真见鬼”。
7. in exact sync with: 与……完全同步。in sync表示“同步的，协调的”。反之，out of sync就是“不同步的，不协调的”。看一下例子：
There was something out of sync with him.（他有点儿别扭。）
8. hung up the spurs: 罢手不干，引退。Rooney因为已经很久没在酒吧看见Carl了，还以为他戒了酒，在家修身养性。
9. pending: 悬而未决的。例如：a pending lawsuit（未判决诉讼案件）。pending还表示“行将发生的，迫近的”。例如：a pending civil strife（即将发生的内乱）。
10. open bar: （婚礼、招待会等的）免费酒柜、酒吧间。
11. fall for: 受……的骗，上……的当，对……信以为真。Peter还以为Carl为了避开当前话题而编谎话。看一下例子：We must not fall for such nonsense.（我们决不能听信这种胡言乱语。）
Dick fell for baseball when he was a little boy. 当迪克还是小孩时就迷上棒球了。
She fell for him at first sight. 她对他一见钟情。
