The script of this programme 本节目台词

William: Hi I'm William and welcome to Authentic Real English.

Feifei: Ahhh…

William: Feifei?

Feifei: Don't you think Brad Pitt is lovely?

William: Brad Pitt?

Feifei: Yes he's tall, handsome… and of course an amazing actor.

William: Yeah and I'm sure he's worth a few bob too.

Feifei: A few bob?

William: Yeah I think Brad Pitt is worth a lot of money.

A Few Bob 一点儿钱

Have you got a few bob?

Feifei: So a few bob means a large amount of money?

William: Well a few bob actually means a small amount of money but it's usually used in an ironic way, to mean a lot of money.

Feifei: A few bob 的意思就是一点儿钱。通常使用这个短语时都带有讽刺的意味,表示很多钱。

William: Here are some examples.

A: She's has got the brand new phone I want!

B: Yeah and look at that designer handbag, she definitely looks like she's got a few bob.

A: Did you see John's new car?

B: Yes it's amazing! He's definitely not short of a few bob.
William: In that last example the speaker said not short of a few bob.

Feifei: Not short of a few bob 的意思就是他非常富有。

William: Sometimes instead of saying a few bob people will say a bob or two.

Feifei: 有时候我们也可以说 a bob or two 来表示 a few bob. I definitely think Brad Pitt is worth a bob or two.

William: Feifei, I think you're getting obsessed with Brad Pitt!

Feifei: I'm not obsessed 痴迷的! I just think he's a very good actor!

William: Yeah yeah yeah! Anyway back to today's phrase, here is an example using the phrase a bob or two.

A: Did you sell your old furniture?

B. Not yet, but I'm hoping to make a bob or two out of it.
Feifei: So William, are you worth a bob or two?

William: I couldn't possibly answer that Feifei!
