影片对白

Jack: Somebody finally arrived. You finally got here. Mr. Prompt.

Mrs Erganian: Oh, remember my kids? Alex, Helen?

Miles: Hi. How areyou?

Mr Erganian: We were thinking maybe you went the wrong way, you went to Tijuana…

Miles: Right.

Mr Erganian: And they don't let you back.

Miles: Yes! Yes! I had to bribe them.

Chiristine: Hey, Miles.

Miles: Hey. How are you, Christine? Yeah, the freeway was unbelievable. Unbelievable. It was bumper-to-bumper the whole way. People getting an early start on the weekend, I guess. Granted, I got a late start, but--

Chiristine: Well, we're just glad you made it.

Miles: Yes.

Mrs. Erganian: Christine, why don't you ask Miles about the cake?

Christine: Oh, good idea. Come with me.

Miles: What's this?

Jack: We don't really have time for that, 'cause we gotta hit the road.

Christine: Oh, come on!It's just gonna take a second!

Mrs. Erganian: Yeah. Jack tells us you are publishing a book. Congratulations.

Miles: Uh.

Mr Erganian: Yes, congratulations.

Miles: Yes, well, uh, it's not exactly finalized yet. So-- There has been some interest, and—

Mrs. Erganian: Your friend is modest.

Jack: Oh, come on, Miles. Don't be so modest. Indulge them. Don't make me out to be a liar.

Mr Erganian: What is the subject of your book? Nonfiction?

Miles: Uh,no. It's-- It's a novel. Fiction.

Mr Erganian: Yes.

Miles: Oh. Although there is quite a bit from my own life, so I suppose that, technically, some of it is nonfiction.

Mr Erganian: Good. I like nonfiction. There is so much to know about this world. I think you read something somebody just invented it, waste of time.

Miles: That's an interesting perspective.

Chiristine: So, which one do you like better?

Miles: Oh, well, I like them both. But, um, if pressed, I would have to say that I prefer the dark.

Jack: Told ya! Bye-bye.

Mr Erganian: Bye.

Miles: Bye.

Jack: Bye. Where the fuck were you, man? Huh? I was dying in there. We're supposed to be a hundred miles away by now.

Miles: I can't help the traffic.

Jack: Oh, come on. You're fucking hungover. You know you are.

Miles: Okay, there was a tasting last night, yes. But I wanted to get us something nice for the ride up. Check out the box. Why did you tell them that my novel was being published?

Jack: 'Cause you said you had it all lined up.

Miles: No, I didn't. No. No. What I said was that there was some interest at Conundrum.

Jack: Yeah. Conundrum.

Miles: And that one of the editors was passing it up to a senior editor.

Jack: Sounds pretty good to me. Sounds like you're in.

Miles: No. It's a long shot. Besides, Conundrum, it's just a small specialty press. Anyway, I'm not gonna get my hopes up. You know? I've stopped caring. The hell with it. I have stopped caring.

Jack: It sounds like it's gonna happen this time. I mean, I can feel it.

妙语佳句,活学活用

1. Mr. Prompt.

这是一个开玩笑的说法,prompt 有“敏捷的,迅速的,及时的”意思,这里Jack 用来讽刺Miles,因为他很晚才到。

2. It was bumper-to-bumper the whole way.

Bumper-to-bumper 指“(汽车)拥塞的,拥挤的”,自然也就是交通拥堵了,比如: bumper-to-bumper traffic 拥塞的交通。

3. hit the road

意思是“开车上路”,例如:Come on, it's time to hit the road. 快点,该上路了。

4. It's just gonna take a second!

表示“只要很短的时间”,a second 极言时间之少,是夸张的说法。

5. if pressed

“如果非要……样的话”

6. Told ya

Ya 是 you的一种口语形式。

7. I can't help the traffic.

这里的意思是“我左右不了路况啊!”

8. line up

这里的意思是“organize, make ready, make the arrangements for组织好,准备好,安排好”,比如:They lined up considerable support for the bill. 他们召集了很多人支持这个提案。

9. get one's hopes up

Don't get someone's hopes up是一个习惯用语,当你委婉地拒绝别人,不想让别人期望太高的时候,就可以用到这句话。比如:---How did your finals go? 期末考试的结果如何?---It went well, but I don't want to get my hopes up. 还不错,不过我不会寄太多希望。
