思想火花 功败垂成的Julianne VS 爱到放弃自尊和一切的Kimmy

影片对白

Michael: Wow. You look beautiful.

Julianne: Thank you.

Michael: You have a date later or something?

Julianne: Never can tell. Hi.

Michael: "Just the way you look tonight." Remember? Okay, kid. You're up.

Kimmy: Well, it's really my father who needs the favor. You see. He's... reorganizing some of the divisions of the company. Public relations is a real problem area for him. It would only be, six months? Maybe. Or three or four?

Michael: (to Julianne) And you knew about this.

Julianne: I think you ought to listen to her, Michael. It's her life, too.

Michael: Well, you gonna tell me that Walter thought this one up? Why don't you start by being honest for one second, Kim?

Kimmy: I am being honest. All of a sudden, I'm supposed to drop out of school, forget my family, forget my career, forget about all the things I had planned for my life.

Michael: Well forgive me for screwing up your plans! I'm sure glad I'm hearing all this now, before it's too late!

Kimmy: What is that sup...

Michael: And what am I supposed to do with my life, huh? I work in a low-paying, zero-respect job. Which, unfortunately, I happen to love.

Julianne: Michael, it sounds like a great opportunity.

Michael: Does it, really? How come you never took some sellout establishment job? Huh? I'll tell you why. Because that isn't you. And guess what? Kim. That's not me, either.

Kimmy: Okay, if that's the way you feel...

Michael: Damn straight that's how I feel! Just come out and say it, my job is not good enough! I am not good enough!

Kimmy: Michael, I never said that.

Michael: Yes, you did. Great, Kim, you wait till two days before our wedding to drop this on me, and I'm just supposed to roll over and drool!

Kimmy: No.

Michael: All right. I am an asshole. I am an insensitive sexist asshole. you'd better...

Kimmy: No, Michael! No, Michael! You are so... so right. And I am so wrong. We've settled this. And I reneged. That wasn't fair. You have to forgive me, and forget this ever happened... Okay? Or I'll die. Please!

Michael: I am sorry, I am sorry... I'm so... I love you.

妙词佳句,活学活用

1. Never can tell.

“谁都没法说,你永远都不会知道”。其实像这种表达方式。我们已经学过好多,比如:you never know,God knows,nobody knows等等。

2. You're up.

You're up. 在这里意思是“go ahead”,“go for it”,用汉语讲就是“你说吧”。

3. Thought this one up

其实这个短语中有thought 就够用了,但是说话者偏偏在后面加一个up,意为加重语气,与此同时,来强调一下“编造”的事实。仔细回想一下,我们曾讲过 You made this up. (你自己编的吧。)不难看出,此句后面结尾的部分同样也是up,代表编造的意思。
