摩登家庭笔记, by 李志萍.

Jay, I’m home. Did Manny call?

Jay: No, because he’s fine. It was a slumber party, not a gang fight.

Gloria: I just want him to fit in. I'm gonna take a shower. Do you care to join me?

Jay: You know, honey, there's a gun in the footlocker in the garage. If I ever say "no" to that question, I want
you to use it on me.

With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For 50 cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And they didn't come back, back, back
Till the 4th of July, ly, ly!

Claire: Why aren't they trying to hurt each other?

Phil: I don't know, but I'm afraid to move.

Phil: What is happening, Claire?


Cameron: Mmm.

Mitchell: What do you think?

Mitchell: No butter, nonfat.

Cameron: Shut up. I'm gonna go check on Lily.

Dede: Surprise!

Mitchell: Mom!


Gloria: What's that?

Jay: Sounds like a bird hit the window.

Gloria: Oh, God, that's a bad sign.


Haley: Ow! That hurt, jerk!

Luke: Ow! I'm gonna kill you, stupid!

Haley: Ow!

Luke: Ow!

Claire: What happened?

Phil: Now I'm sad.


Dede: Hi, honey.

Mitchell: Hi. I-I didn't know you were in town. You didn't call.

Dede: Well, I couldn't wait to see your new baby. Where is she?

Cameron: Mitchell, who was that?

Mitchell: Uh, it's my Mom.

Cameron: Oh, yeah, right, 'cause the last time she was here, the refrigerator magnets rearranged
themselves into a
penta– Grandma!

Cameron: Mitchell's mother has a problem… with me. Last Christmas, for example, she gave me a
piece of exercise equipment and a lettuce dryer. So, to recap, I gave her a gorgeous pair of diamond
earrings, and she gave me a hint.


Dede: And living in Sedona has been transformational. I get up every morning, and I go to a vortex

somehow get past… the incident.
awakening [ə'wekənɪŋ]: an occasion when you realize something or become aware of something 唤醒;觉醒

Cameron: Oh, no.


Mitchell: The incident.

Cameron: Oh, boy.


Dede: I would like to congratulate Jay and the lovely Gloria. I'm very happy for them.


Gloria: I wanted a big, beautiful wedding with Jay because my ex-husband and I got married in a tiny, little
office of a judge in Colombia.


Mitchell: My mother wanted to go to the wedding to show everyone how okay she was with all of it, so I
convinced Dad and Gloria to invite her.

Cameron: Who warned you that that was the worst idea ever? Anyone? Anyone? Oh. [chuckles]


Dede: Of course, I've — I've moved on. [chuckles] I was supposed to come with a date, but he just hurt his
back, which is very ironic because he's young and — and healthy.


Claire: My Mom started drinking these cocktails called "Horny Colombians" with some of Gloria's uncles,
whom, apparently, the drink was named after.

Phil: Oh, come on, they were funny. [laughter]

Phil: [chuckling] Somebody's full of herself. It's a — it's a Colombian wedding tradition, they said. 
full of yourself: very proud; thinking only of yourself 自高自大,目空一切


Dede: [glass clinking] I would like to make a toast.


Haley: Yeah, nana got totally wasted. Uh, it was really funny. Then it was gross.


Dede: To the bride and the groom — my ex. 35 years we were together, and he couldn't wait 10 minutes to
run off with Charo.
 That’s a joke. [rimshot] Seriously, I knew they were perfect for each other when I saw his
wallet and her boobs. [laughs] Take your hands off me.

Claire: Mom.

Mitchell: Mom. Mom.

Dede: Oh, relax, Mitchell. What, did you take your Claire pill?

Phil: No, no, no, no, no.

Mitchell: Let's just go get a little fresh air, okay? Come on.


Cameron: And then it got weird.


Dede: [Hispanic accent] I'm Gloria. I'm Gloria. Kiss me. Oh, hey, kiss me. [guests gasping, murmuring]
Hispanic [hɪˈspænɪk]: of or connected with Spain or Spanish-speaking countries, especially those of Latin America

Mitchell: No! Oh, Geez.


Luke: Nana is really strong.


Dede: Ayayayayay! Ooh! Ayayayayay!


Gloria: During my vows to my first husband, drug dealers burst in and assassinated the judge. This was
way worse.

Jay: What can I say? I drive women crazy. [laughs] It's too soon, I guess.


Haley: Everybody is going to be there, Mom.

Claire: I don't care. Your father and I are not about to let you drive two hours to go to a concert and then
spend the night with a bunch of boys, especially that 17-year-old hormone you're dating.

Haley: It's totally supervised.
supervise [ˈsupərˌvaɪz]: to be in charge of somebody/something and make sure that everything is done correctly,

Haley: You know Spencer — the guy with the arm.

heart broken when Dylan goes off to college next year.
step in: to help somebody in a disagreement or difficult situation 介入;干预;插手

Haley: He's not going to college.

Claire: That's not what I'm even think– He's not going to college?

Haley: He's in a band, okay? They're going on tour.

Claire: Oh, this just gets better and better.

Haley: Why are you always on me about everything?
on: 针对

Claire: Because you need to understand –

Phil: Okay, now, everybody, calm down. Let's start from the beginning. What's wrong with Spencer's arm?

Haley: Ugh!
