核心句型:
He leans over backwards to please his immediatesuperior.
他拼命讨好他的顶头上司。
lean over backwards字面理解就是:“身体使劲地向后倾斜”,这种姿势对于一般人来说应该很难做到,而且做起来也很难受。由此引申而来的意思就是,为了做某事而把自己置于不舒服的位置,也就是我们说的“竭尽全力、拼命地”的意思。因此,当美国人说"He leans over backwards toplease his immediate superior."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"He tries to please his boss tooth andnail."、"He tries his best to please his boss."。
情景对白:
Terry: I saw Jack driving the boss home yesterday.
