Man: Parkinson's, right?

Jamie: Oh, no. No.

Man: No, your wife.

Jamie: Girlfriend. Stage One.

Man: Good days and bad days, huh?

Jamie: Mostly good days. You?

Man: Wife. Since '73. Stage Four.

Jamie: You got any advice?

Man: You don't need my advice.

Jamie: Come on. I'm very trainable.

Man: My advice is to go upstairs, pack your bags, and leave a nice note. Find yourself a healthy woman. I love my wife. I do. But I wouldn't do it over again. The thing nobody tells you, this disease will steal everything you love in her. Her body, her smile, her mind. Sooner or later, she'll lose motor control. Eventually, she won't even be able to dress herself. Then, the fun really begins. Cleaning up her shit. Frozen face. Dementia. It's not a disease, it's a Russian novel. Look, I'm sorry. I'm out of line. Hang in there.

Maggie: Did you realize there are other people with Parkinson's? How remarkable! Amazing people. People doing things. Like this one woman runs marathons, and another one scuba dives. And they're pissed off and they're tired of being marginalized. Oh, my God, they are so cool! I feel good. I feel really good. I feel better than I have felt in a long time, and you brought me here. I mean, okay, whatever, it was the wrong convention, sure, but...Jamie, I... Jamie. I have been such a bitch to you.

Jamie: Oh, no.

Maggie: And you didn't even run away. How is that possible? It's like, this is...Like, the first time in my life that I've ever not felt alone. That someone is there for me. Do you know what that means? Oh, my God. I love you. I do. I love you. I love you, I love you. I really love you.

妙语佳句 活学活用

1. motor control: 运动控制,这里指行为失控

2. frozen:僵硬的,惊呆的。

Frozen一般表示“冰冻的、冷冻的”,比如frozen food(冷冻食品)。


3. dementia: 痴呆;精神错乱。senile dementia就是指“老年性痴呆”。

4. out of line: 举止不当,令人难以接受。类似于out of place

例如;The last remark was out of line.(最后一句话是不得体的。)

I never said anything to her that was out of place.(我从没跟她说过什么出格的话。)

out of line还可以表示“不相符”,比如:Prices and wages were badly out of line.(物价与工资非常不协调。)

5. Hang in there: 坚持下去

6. scuba dive: 戴水肺潜水,这里的scuba指的是“自携式水中呼吸器,水肺”

7. marginalize: 边缘化。marginalized group就是指“非主流群体”
