摩登家庭笔记, by 李志萍.

Wow. Really? No, it's just a shock, is all.

Gloria: Jay?

Jay: So Celia's carrying the judge's baby. No wonder she shot him. She's hormonal.
hormonal [hɔ:'məunl]: relating to or involving hormones 荷尔蒙的;激素引起的

Gloria: Who are you talking to?

Jay: The housekeeper. Maria, I've gotta go. Thanks a lot.

Gloria: Jay, I need you to talk to Manny.

Jay: What?

Gloria: Well, if he's doing what you think he's doing, then he needs to talk to a man. I don't want him to be
ashamed of anything.

Jay: Then you don't want to send me in there.

Gloria: Yeah, but what if… if he has questions? What if he doesn't know how to…

Jay: Gloria, Gloria, whatever he's going through, he can work it out himself.

Manny: Help! I'm stuck!

Gloria: Ay, no, Jay, go. I beg of you! Go! Go! Go!
beg of: (正式用语)求(人),拜托(人)(用于第一人称,通常用现在时态,不用被动语态)

Jay: Gloria. I'm extremely reluctant to do this.

Manny: Please hurry!

[door opened]

Gloria: Ay, no. I cannot look at this.

Jay: What the hell?

Manny: I can't get down, Jay.

Gloria: What? What happened to Manny?! Ay, somebody say something to me!

Jay: Gloria, it's okay. Come on in.

Gloria: Okay.

Jay: He was hanging from that bar up there.

Gloria: What? Why? What do you have on your head?

Manny: It's a weighted helmet to stretch me so I can get taller.
weighted ['weitid]: 加重的

Jay: Whoa.

Gloria: Manny! Why do you have to get tall now?

Manny: Love, Mom. Why else? I lost Bella to Durkus because, in her words, "He's tall." Everybody else is
getting taller but me. You think it's the coffee?

Gloria: No. Maybe. But… but hanging downside up is not gonna help you.

Manny: The website said it would.

Gloria: Listen, Manny, you're already intelligent and beautiful and funny. If you get tall, you're going to have
everything, and those poor boys are not gonna have anything to compete with you. Look at this. You have
a mark on your head now. I'm gonna go get you some ice, okay?

Manny: That's a lot of pretty words, but they don't help me tomorrow.

Jay: Sorry, kid. It's just one of those things. You get taller when you get taller. Why don't you get ready for
bed? Ah, jeez. You know, when I was your age, I started working out to get the girls.

Manny: You think that would help?

Jay: Yeah. So tomorrow, we start working out. Okay? Maybe I'll even show you a few pull-ups on, uh, this
bad boy here, huh? You see that?
 Pretty soon, that's how strong… you're gonna be.


Luke: Thanks, Mom.

Claire: Shh. I don't want them to know I was here.

Luke: Okay.

Holly: Oh, Claire, I thought that was you. Thank God. Come in.

Claire: I can't. 'Cause I'm sick, remember? Sorry.

Holly: Well, my DVD player just broke, and none of us know how "Gone with the Wind" ends. But you
saw it, right? I…

Holly's Friend: Oh, is that Claire?

Holly: Yeah.

Holly's Friend: Can you tell us what happened?

Claire: I could, but I don't want to ruin it for you.

Holly: Claire. Just tell us.

Claire: Um… Scarlett is… really mad at Clark Gable because, um, he says so many bad things. And
didn't he, um, burn down a farm or something?

Holly: Claire, have you been drinking?

Claire: Um… I had a hot toddy. Made one for my throat.

5. 热托蒂(hot toddy),源于苏格兰,通常由酒、水、蜂蜜、草药、调味料混合而成。传统上,是在晚上休息之前,或在

Holly: Pretty dressed up for a night in bed, right?

Bethenny: Yeah.

Claire: Yeah, I-I just threw on the first thing I could find… when Luke called, and it was just right there on
the chair.

Bethenny: She has a stamp on her hand.

Claire: Okay. All right. Before we bust out the pitchforks and the torches, may I remind you that I've driven

Julian: I-I'm not gay.

Claire: Yes, you are.

Julian: I-I'm not gay. I'm… I'm French. You thought I was gay?

Claire: Are you serious right now?

Julian: Well, are you? You've been throwing yourself at me all night.

Claire: No, no. No, I have not.

Holly: Bethenny, grab the Pinot.

Claire: Bethenny, do not grab the Pinot.

Julian: You undressed in front of me. You squeezed my arm. You asked me for a massage. What was
all that?
undress: to take off your clothes 脱衣服

Claire: That was… that was me safely objectifying a gay person.

Holly: Wow, Claire! When I wrote "don't ever change" in your yearbook, I didn't mean it like this.

Holly: It's short.

Claire: Yeah.


Phil: [running] Please? Please, just listen to me for one second.

Haley: Go away! Stop following me!

Policeman: Hey, you wanna tell me why you're bothering this young lady?

Phil: Oh, no, no, no, no. Officer, this is my daughter. Tell him.

Haley: Tonight, I don't know who you are.

Phil: She's… she's joking. I'm not dangerous. In fact, I-I-I helped to put all the lights on this path. 20 years
ago, some friends and I
 took back the night. So… I-I think I just… I embarrassed her a little.

Policeman: Yep, that's a daughter.

Haley: Tonight was insane. Why did you have to act like that?

Phil: You were at that party. I see you talking to frat boys, and…

Haley: Isn't that why we're here, so I can experience college? I mean, what are you gonna do when I actually

Phil: I don't know. Freak out, I think. Look… your whole life, my job has been to protect you… A job I kinda
love. Now I feel like I'm being forced into early retirement. I just needed to find you and make sure you were
For as long as I still get to do that.

Haley: Oh. Just like you… piss me off and then say something sweet. I'm not leaving until the fall.

Jay: And some we're not.


Manny: I'm so embarrassed I did that.

Gloria: I'm just so happy that that was all it was.

Manny: Why? What'd you think I was doing?

Mitchell: Yeah, I feel that's not the way it's gonna happen.
