Julia: Well, you do have a flaw after all.

Harrison: Oh yeah? What's that?

Julia: Your job.

Harrison: I thought women liked doctors.

Julia: We do like lab coats, but the flying around everywhere is not so good.

Harrison: I'm only going to San Francisco for one night.

Julia: Couldn't somebody else do it, just tonight?

Harrison: No, I'm the best. If it's any consolation, when I'm fixing his heart...you can hold mine.

Julia: Oh. Thank you. Thank you.

Harrison: Hey, what are you doing? No. I can't miss my plane. No.

Julia: I can't believe you're leaving me on Valentine's Day.

Harrison: You said you had something to do.

Julia: I do have something to do. I do have something to do. I just don't know that I wanna do it. You know my friend Kara?

Harrison: Which one's Kara?

Julia: Neurotic, hot mess. She throws this annual "I Hate Valentine's Day" dinner. It's a bit of a downer, actually.

Harrison: What's there to hate?

Julia: Nothing, if you're a handsome, divorced doctor. But for the rest of us single women, it's kind of a giant cosmic bitch slap. It's the universe saying, "Look, remember when you were 14, and you had cystic acne and braces, and you played the saxophone in the marching band, and no one would invite you to the winter formal? Well, nothing's changed."

Harrison: I would crawl over cut glass to take you to the winter formal. And then I would prescribe Retin-A for your skin.

Julia: That's why you're my valentine.

TV: (Kelvin says) So we have a professional here. I'm sure you've heard a lot of stories on Valentine's Day. Do you still believe in love? (Reed answers) Hell, yes. Love is the only shocking act left on the planet. (Kelvin says) Well, if he said it, folks, it must be true, because he is a florist.


Jason: What is it?

Liz: You're up.

Jason: Did you get my good side?

Liz: I don't know. Roll over. Last night...

Jason: Was...?

Liz: Amazing.

Jason: Okay, thank you.

Liz: Well, I used to be a gymnast.

Jason: Well, that explains a lot.

Liz: Yeah, I didn't hurt you, right? You're so cute.

Jason: I thought you wanted to be a poet...not a photographer.

Liz: A girl can change her mind, Jason. That's how last night happened. Anyway, I could not write that photo.

Jason: Okay, yeah...Is my nose kind of--? It looks kind of big for my face.

Liz: I think that's L.A. talking. I think you have a great nose. My God. Is that the time?

Jason: What? What? No, it's 3 minutes fast. I don't like being late.

Liz: I have to go. I just--

Jason: Just like that?

Liz: Yeah, I'm sorry. I just--Skirt? Skirt, skirt, skirt. What? Oh right. I think I half-remember that. 3 minutes? Why not 5 minutes ahead?

Jason: I don't wanna seem eager. But, yeah, you know what? Stay. Hang out for a little bit. Maybe we can grab breakfast.

Liz: I knew it. Oh, I knew it.

Jason: What is that, techno?

Liz: What?

Jason: The ring.

Liz: Oh. No, I think it's, like, a little more retro. It's kind of '70s. Thank you so much for last night. I had a blast. And there is fresh coffee for you in the kitchen.

Jason: I think I'm out of coffee.

Liz: Yeah, you were. I borrowed some from your neighbor. By the way, she was very surprised you had female company, she thought that you were gay. Don't worry, I set her straight.

Jason: Bye.

Valentine's Day《情人节》精讲之二

Liz: Hi. Oh, I was thinking about you all night long. I'm sorry I didn't answer on the first ring. It's not my fault. I was thinking about what you were gonna do to me and I just couldn't wait. I didn't have a free hand. Oh, baby. You know just how Katia likes it. Well, it's Valentine's Day, sugar. How about something special? My roommate just gets home. Do you wanna have a threesome?

Woman: If he says yes, it'll take me a minute to change.

Liz: Ooh. I think that's a very good idea.


Estelle: Edgar, we said we were not gonna give each other presents this year.

Edgar: I know, I lied.

Estelle: So did I.

Edgar: Wow.

妙语佳句 活学活用

1. neurotic: 神经质的。

2. downer: 令人悲哀(或沮丧)的经历。看一下例子:The news of his friend's death was a real downer.(他朋友的死讯确实是个令人沮丧的消息。)downer也可以表示“令人沮丧的人或事物”或“连连失败”,例如:The team is on a real downer.(这支球队连战连败。)

3. cosmic: 无比巨大的,无限的,无穷尽的。和前面的giant合在一起,加重了语气。影片中Julia说情人节对于那些大龄单身女子来说无异于一个巨大的耳光,是一种耻辱。看一下例子:cosmic loneliness(无限寂寞)。

4. cystic acne: 囊肿性痤疮。

5. braces: 牙箍。

6. prescribe: 开(药方)。请看例子:The doctors prescribed some pills for my cold.(为治感冒,医生给我开了些药片。)prescribe还有“规定,指定”的意思。例如:Do not prescribe to me what I'm going to do.(不要规定我做什么事。)

7. L.A. talking: 洛杉矶说法。因为洛杉矶人以注重人的外表著称,所以按洛杉矶人过于苛刻的标准,Jason的鼻子也许有点大。

8. techno: 泰克诺音乐(一种利用电子技术演奏的节奏鲜明的舞曲)。

9. retro: 前不久刚流行过的,再度流行的。

10. have a blast: 玩得很开心。blast的意思是“欢乐,满足”。看一下例子:We had a blast at the party last night.(昨天的晚会上我们玩得很热闹。)

11. threesome: 床上三人行。
