[Scene: Joey is watching Wheel of Fortune, the puzzle is showing _oun_
Joey: Fortune! This guy is so stupid. It's Count Rushmore!!
Chandler: You know, you should really go on this show. All right, listen, I
got three tickets to the Rangers tonight. Whaddaya
Joey: I say, "I'm there!" Cool! Aw, is Ross going too?
Chandler: No, Janice.
Joey: Jan-ice. 'Cause I, just, I feel bad for Ross, you know, we…we always go
together, we're like the three hocke-teers.
Chandler: You know, I may be way out on a limb here, but do you,
do you, have a problem with Janice?
Joey: No, Yeeees. God, how do I say this? Oh, hi, you know that girl from the
Greek restaurant with the hair?
Chandler: Ooh, that girl that I hate, eww, drives
me crazy, eww, eww, oh!
Joey: Look, I don't hate Janice, she's... she's just a lot to take, you know.
Chandler: Well, there you go.
Joey: Oh, hey. Come on man, don't
look at me like that, she used to drive you
nuts before too, remember?
Chandler: Well, I'm crazy about her now. I think this could be the real
thing. Capital "R"! Capital "T"! Don't worry. Those are the right letters.
Joey: Look, what do you want me to say?
Chandler: I want you to say that you like her!
Joey: I can't. It's like this chemical thing, you know. Every time she starts
laughing, I just wanna pull my arm off just so that I can have something to
throw at her.
Chandler: Thanks for trying. Oh, and by the way there is no Count
Joey: Yeah, then... then who's the guy that painted the faces on the
(Chandler gives him a look like "You stupid idiot!")
1. Whaddaya say：实际上是“What do you say?”，意思是问别人“这事你意下如何？”这里的ya是you的缩读，ya也可以是are
you的缩读。比如ya going to the party? 在不太正式的场合或者刻意要营造一种“土得掉渣”的气氛时，我们经常可以听到诸如betcha(bet
you), gotcha(got you)以及see ya等等片语。当别人说一个什么事儿我们表示不屑或不信任时，也可以反问“Says who?”。
2. out on a limb：limb原意是小树枝，悬在小树枝的边上是一种什么感觉？其实就是alone and without help or
support，类似汉语里说孤立无援。Chandler这里用be out on a
limb是指“说这话要冒点风险”，换句话说就是“可能Joey会不爱听”。类似的，go out on a limb
可以表示冒险做某件事情。比如他甘愿冒风险帮助我们就可以说“He'd gone out on a limb (=taken a risk) to help
3. drive somebody crazy：make someone feel very annoyed，都快把我给逼疯了！我们也可以用drive
somebody nuts/mad/insane。比如说“咳嗽把我弄得快受不了”，就可以说“This cough is driving me mad!”
5. There you go：也是出现频率极高的词组，很多情况下相当于That's it。
6. come on：这里注意听Joey说come
Joey和Chandler在看Wheel of Fortune 这个电视节目时，Joey作为一个美国人竟然不知道Mount Rushmore
National Memorial，难怪被Chandler看作是"stupid idiot"，还讽刺他真该上电视。
Mount Rushmore National Memorial was authorized in 1925.
Located in the Black Hills of SW. South Dakota the memorial features the heads
of United States presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln
and Theodore Roosevelt carved into a granite bluff. The massive sculpture was
carved into the rim of Mount Rushmore 150 m (500 ft) above the valley floor and
each face is 20 m (60 ft) tall. The memorial cost nearly $1 million to create.
The idea for the sculpture came from South Dakota historian Doane Robinson in
the early 1920s. American sculptor Gutzon Borglum designed the memorial and
supervised its construction. Borglum envisioned a monument to the growth of the
United States and its most important leaders and chose Mount Rushmore as the
site. Borglum's original design was a sculpture of the four presidents down to
their waists. Construction of the memorial began in 1927. The head of Washington
was completed first, followed by Jefferson and Lincoln. Roosevelt's head was
unfinished when Borglum died in 1941 and his son Lincoln completed the work
later that year.
