经典对白之一:10-17-1 将要失去才知珍惜

故事梗概

在这一集中,Rachel 充满深情地向 Ross 解释了为什么她故意冷落 Ross,没有单独向他道别。那是因为她太在乎他,对Rachel 来说,与 Ross 道别是生命不能承受之别。她的话今 Ross很感动,两人激情拥吻。Rachel 和 Ross 和好了。过夜后,Ross决定和 Rachel 厮守一生,不料 Rachel 却将这一夜看作是最好的告别方式。

Ross: Uh, we, y'know, we worked things out.


Phoebe: What's that smile? Did something happen with you two?


Ross: Hey, I'm not one to kiss and tell, but I'm also not one to have sex and shut up. We totally did it!


Joey: Oh my God. You and Rachel?


Ross: I know, it's pretty great.

讲解

kiss and tell (大嘴巴) 从字面上可以看出,就是男孩子吻了女孩子之后,到处跟人讲,很有些“大嘴巴,无聊”的意思。对应的,许多人在表达 I promise I won't tell anybody.的时候就可以说:I do not kiss and tell.


kiss-and-tell 还可以作名词讲,有些人把自己和名人的罗曼史或绯闻写成文章或书奔走相告,这种文章或书就称为 kiss-and-tell.(a story,article,book etc.in which someone tells the public the secret details ot a romantic or secret relationship that they had with a famous person) 秘密仿佛是一种负担,如果碰到比较 nosy (好打听别人事情的) 的人对你的秘密很好奇,你就可以问一句“Can you keep a secret?” (你能保密么?) 对方肯定会立即回答道“of course! I can” 然后,你就可以调皮地回一句“so can I.” 如此这样,你既保住了你的秘密,而且又幽默了一把。秘密或隐私往往会成为伤害人的武器,所以对秘密一定要严加防守。表示保密的短语有:


Keep something under wraps.(to keep something secret) 例如:The mysterious“Deep Throat” (“深喉”) in the Watergate scandal has been kept under wraps for over thirty years.(水门事件中那个神秘的曾被称为“深喉”的人隐匿了30余年。)
Don't 1et the cat out of the bag.(不要泄露机密。)


还有另外一个短语是:keep a lid on something (to control a situation very carefully.especially so that it does not cause problems)。这个短语除了有“控制”的意思之外,还有“保密”的含义。例如:I won't tell you anysecret anymore,because you could only keep a lid on it for 10 seconds·(我不会再告诉你任何秘密了,因为你只能把一个秘密保守10秒钟。) This film star keeps a very tight lid on her private life.(这个电影演员对私生活很保密。)


此外,看美国连续剧有时可听到一句话,就是:What I’m going to tell you doesn't leave this room.(我告诉你的东西不能离开这个房间,也就是不能告诉别人。)不离开这个房间也不一定安全啊,要知道 Walls have ears·(隔墙有耳。) 告诉别人秘密前还经常说一个短语:Just between you and me.意思是说“秘密不要告诉别人,你知,我知,天知,地知好了。”


对以上所有的告戒,回答可以说:My lips are sealed./My lips are zipped.(我会守口如瓶。) 或 Trust me! I don't have a big mouth.(相信我!我的嘴巴很严实。) 你也可以说:Don't worry.Your secret is safe with me.(别担心。你的秘密在我这儿会很安全。) 或者是 I promise I Won't tell anybody else about it.(我保证不会告诉其他任何人的。)有些人就是嘴巴不严,大嘴巴(kiss and tell),容易说露嘴。表示“泄密”的短语有:spill the beins,以及 let the cat out of the bag,它的意思是“不小心把秘密泄漏出去。” (to tell someone a secret,especially without intending to) 另外还有 kiss and tell 和 big mouth。例如:she has a big mouth.(她嘴巴不严。)当你不小心把别人的秘密说出去,你可以责怪自己 me and my big mouth! (都是我的大嘴巴!) 例如:Oops,I shouldn't have said that.Me and my big mouth.(哎呀! 我不应该把它说出来。瞧我这个大嘴巴!) 同样地,责怪别人嘴巴不严,可说:You and your big mouth.(你这个大嘴巴!)

经典对白之二:10-17-2 龙凤胎

故事梗概


本集中,Erica 临产,Monica 显得比 Erica 还要紧张 、 激动。lonica 和 handler 一同在产房陪伴 Erica 产下一胎男婴。可是出人意料的是,接着还有一个小生命等待着诞生。原来,Erica 怀的是一对龙风胎。Monica 和 Chandlen 刚开始有些惊慌(Panic),因为事先没有任何心理准备。但最终他们决定愉快地接受这个惊喜,欢欣地迎接这一对可爱的龙风胎。

Doctor: Well, you don't have that much time to relax. The other one will be along in a minute.


(Chandler stares at the doctor, completely shocked. Monica just freezes and turns around slowly.)


Monica: I... I'm sorry, who should be along in a what now?


Doctor: The next baby should be along in a minute.


Monica: We only ordered one!


Doctor: You know it's twins, right?

讲解

order 这里是指“订购,订单;预定;点菜”。又如:Hamburgers are ordered through a window in the restaurant.(通过餐馆的窗口可以订购汉堡包。) Can I have the menu? I wonld like to order now.(把菜单给我好吗? 我想现在点菜。) Owing to so much luggage,you’d better order a taxi (行李太多,你最好还是去预定一辆出租汽车。)

同形异义词 (homonym),是指发音和拼写都相同,但意义不同的词。同形异义词在文学作品中常用作双关语 (pun) 的基础,而且,是制造幽默的好素材。例如:A professor said:“Order,please.Let's begin our class Order!”Then some naughty students responded:“Beer,please.”(这里,教授的意思是:“安静,别说话了。我们开始上课。”但一些调皮的学生却“巧妙,,地运用了双关语,故意把 order 的意思扭曲为:“订购,点菜”。既然教授让点了,那就不客气了,来杯啤酒吧!)


此外,如果你看到自动售货机或厕所上贴着“out of order.”的话,就不要再用了。因为,“out of order.”的意思是“坏了,失灵了,不能用了”。相反,in good order 则意为“有条不紊,整齐,情况正常”。例如:His room is very tidy.Everything is in good order.(他的房间很干净整齐。每一样东西都整理得有条有理。)


我们常把 order 用到表目的的短语中:in order that (为了,目的在于……),in order to (为了……起见,以便) 例如:In order to catch the train,she hurried through her lunch.(为了赶火车,她匆匆吃完了午餐。)

经典对白之三:10-17-3 想说爱你不容易

故事梗概

在这一集中,得知 Rachel 要离开,在Central Perk 工作的Gunther 向 Rachel 表白他的爱意,但 Rachel 委婉地拒绝了他。Ross其实当时也打算向 Rachel 表白他的爱意,但当他目睹了 Gunther被拒一幕之后,他就没有勇气说出口,因为,他怕自己会落个与 Gunthet 同样的下场。

Ross: Because she's just going to shoot me down. You guys saw what happened with Gunther. That did not look like fun.


Phoebe: How can you compare yourself to Gunther? I mean, sure, he's sexy in a more obvious way. You have a relationship with her, you slept together last night.


Ross: Yeah, and she still wants to go! It's pretty clear where she is.

讲解

shoot down 这里不是“击落,击毙”或者“击败,驳倒”的意思,而是指“断然否定,坚决拒绝,彻底否定” (reject badly without any sympathy)。

例如:
My heart was broken,because I plucked up courage to ask her out,but she shot me down.(我的心都碎了。因为,我鼓起勇气约她出去,却被她断然拒绝。)

下面再介绍几个表达“拒绝,不接受”的词和短语,以及它们的不同。

首先,refuse (通常隐含着坚决和不太友善的味道。) 例如:The superstar refused to discuss questions of privacy.(这个超级巨星拒谈隐私问题。)


其次,reject (表示因为不令人满意、有缺陷或无用而抛弃。它暗示无条件的拒绝。) 例如:He again offered himself for enlistment and was again reiected.(他再次要求应征入伍,结果再次被回绝了。)


下一个,spurn (to spurn is to reject scornfully or contemptuously; 指轻蔑或鄙视地拒绝)。例如:The more she spurns my 1ove,the more it grows.(她越是轻蔑地拒绝我对她的爱,这爱便越是增长。)


如果我们想表达“委婉地拒绝,婉言拒绝,有礼貌地拒绝”,可用“to decine”或“to turn down”,decline 意为“有礼貌地拒绝” (to decline is torefuse courteously)
例如:
I declined their warm invitation,in that I really COUldn't make it.(由于实在脱不开身,我婉言拒绝了他们的热情邀请。) 又如:I don't mean to hurt him,but he is realy not my type,and I gotta turn him down.(我不是有意要伤害他,但是他真不是我喜欢的类型。我必须婉言拒绝他。)
