核心句型:
You must have overplayed your hand.
你一定是做得太过火了。
overplay one's hand这个习语源于扑克游戏,意思是过高估计对手手中的牌或自己的牌,结果却输了。此习语作为比喻,常用于形容过分自信或胃口太大而做出超越自己能力的事以及把话说过头的场景之中。这个短语的正确意思是:“做得过火,做得出格了。”因此,当美国人说"You must haveoverplayed your hand."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"Youmust have overdone it."、"What you have donemust have gone too far."。
情景对白:
Todd: Ben, my assistant wept this morning for my criticism.
