克莱夫.哈里斯:重要的是他们能多快供货。

DEREK JONES: MAGL certainly claim to be the fastest.

德里克.琼斯:MAGL一定是宣称供货最快的。

But I' m worried that although they are fast they may not have the best quality control.

但我担心,虽然他们是供货最快的,但他们可能没有最好的质量控制。

CLIVE HARRIS: And quality control was the problem with Southford Components.

克莱夫.哈里斯:质量控制正是Southford零配件公司出问题的地方。

DEREK JONES: Exactly. Although they have promised that their system is improved.

德里克.琼斯:一点也不错。尽管他们承诺质检系统已有改善。

DON BRADLEY: Looking at these quotations, I don' t think Parkview are the best option.

堂.布拉德利:看一下这些报价,我认为Parkview不是最好的选择。

They offer a very fast delivery time, they have a very high reputation and they are the nearest supplier to the assembly line.

他们提出的供货时间很快,他们的声誉很好,他们是离装配线最近的供应商。

But they are very expensive compared with Southford.

但与Southford 相比,他们的价格很高。

DEREK JONES: Don, price can' t be a factor at this stage.

DON BRADLEY: I don' t agree with you.

堂.布拉德利:我不同意。

I think we have to get the best service at the best price.

我认为我们必须以最好的价格获得最好的服务。

CLIVE HARRIS: I think we can re-negotiate a far better deal with Southford Components.

克莱夫.哈里斯:我认为,我们可以和Southford零配件公司重新谈判获取一个更好的协议。

But we must move fast...Come in.

但我们一定要快……进来。

KATE MCKENNA: Clive, what on earth' s going on?

凯特.麦凯纳:克莱夫,到底出了什么事?

CLIVE HARRIS: Welcome back, Kate.

克莱夫.哈里斯:欢迎你回来, 凯特。

KATE MCKENNA: I' ve just spent weeks selling Big Boss in the States and now I find out there' s something wrong with it.

凯特.麦凯纳:我刚在美国花了几周时间销售“大老板”,现在却发现出了问题。

Why didn't anyone tell me?

为什么没人告诉我?

CLIVE HARRIS: We only discovered this yesterday.

克莱夫.哈里斯:我们也是昨天才发现问题的。

And we' re fairly sure that none of the defective circuits went to the States.

我们很确信没有缺陷电路流入美国。

Now, I spoke to New York ten minute ago.

我10分钟前跟纽约通过话。

They' re running a check.

他们在开始检查了。

They' re ringing back tomorrow.
