摩登家庭笔记, by 李志萍.

[phone ringing]

Phil: Night.

Claire: No.

Phil: Middle of the phone. I got it.

Claire: Get it.

Phil: Oh! My arm's asleep! My arm's asleep!
asleep: If you say that your arm or leg is asleep, you mean that it is numb, for example because you have been
sitting in an awkward position.

Claire: Get the phone. Phil, get the phone.

Phil: Oh!


Claire: That's me. Hello! Hi. Yes, this is she.

Phil: Who is it?

Claire: Okay. Oh, God.

Phil: Tell me what's happening here!

Claire: Haley has been arrested.

Phil: What?


[phone ringing]

Cameron: Phone! Phone. I bet that's mama. I was just dreaming it was raining chickens! Mitchell,
answer the phone!

Mitchell: Look what I am doing. Look what I am doing, huh? Hello?

Claire: Hey, Mitchell. I'm sorry to wake you up, but Haley got arrested.

Mitchell: Oh, God. Haley got arrested.

Cameron: That explains the chickens.

Mitchell: It does. It adds up. What did she get arrested for?

Claire: Oh, she got caught drinking at some party. Look, could you drive up to the college with us?
I think we're gonna need a lawyer.

Mitchell: Yes, of course. And Cam and Lily can come over and stay with Alex and Luke.

Cameron: I'll guard them with my life.

Mitchell: Yeah, yeah.

Claire: I hate to bother him.

Mitchell: No, no, don't be silly. He's happy to do it. Okay, we'll be over in a little bit. [beeps] Okay. 

Cameron: Oh, I get it. When you told Claire I would come over and watch the kids, she was resistant
because she doesn't trust my parenting skills.
resistant [ri'zistənt]: Someone who is resistant to something is opposed to it and wants to prevent it. 抵制的

Mitchell: No. Don't be silly. She just didn't want to put you out.

Cameron: She's got a daughter behind bars and she's got the nerve to say I'm a bad parent? You didn't
defend me.

Mitchell: Because she didn't say anything.

Cameron: Why are you protecting her?

Mitchell: Why is no one protecting me? No.


[phone ringing]

Gloria: Ay! Answer! Answer!

Jay: [beeps] This better be good.

Claire: [groans] Haley got arrested for drinking. We gotta go bail her out. Do you still have a connection
to that judge

Gloria: Ay! Who died?

Jay: An old friend of mine.

Gloria: Ay, Jay, I'm so sorry.

Jay: He died five years ago.

Gloria: Then why are they calling us in the middle of the night to wake us up?!

Jay: Nobody died. Haley's in jail.

Gloria: Okay. That makes more sense.

Jay: Claire has to go bail her out.

Gloria: Okay. Give me that. Claire, listen to me… Take a lot of cash. And when you flash it to the police,
do not speak about it. Let the eyes do all the talking, okay?
flash: to show something to somebody quickly 快速亮一下(证件等)

[door opens]

Manny: I heard the phone. Who died?

Gloria: Jay's friend.

Manny: Oh, Jay, I'm so sorry.

Claire: Okay. I can't do this again. [beeps]


Cameron: [singing] It's breakfast. It's breakfast time. It's breaky breaky time.

Alex: Uncle Cam. I thought I heard your voice. What are you doing here? Where are my parents?

Cameron: Well, the school called, and your sister won a big award.

Alex: Nice try. The only person who would believe that would be Haley.

Lily: She's in jail.

Alex: Jail?

Cameron: Lily, what did I say?

Lily: That it was only a matter of time.
only a matter of time: 只是时间问题

Cameron: Okay, no. Didn't say that. Okay, so here's the truth. Your sister was caught drinking. But it's

on that plate you like a lot.


Alex: Is this bacon?

Cameron: Of course it is, silly.

Mitchell: That one. That one. Still that one.


Luke: This is the best bacon I've ever had.

Cameron: Oh, well. [chuckles] I can't wait to tell your Uncle Mitchell that you love it.

Alex: Why would Uncle Mitch care?

Cameron: Because, my dear, that bacon you're eating isn't bacon at all, no, no, no. It's made entirely
of soy.

Alex: Luke's allergic to soy! His throat closes! He can't breathe!

Mitchell: Hello?

Cameron: Never mind! Okay, okay. We have to, uh, get you to the, uh, hospital!


Alex: Lily! Come on, baby.

Cameron: Okay, Luke! Put the fakon down!

Luke: I'm using it to scratch my throat!

Cameron: Okay. Okay. Let's go. Come on. Go.

sunglasses, huh?

Phil: Honey… Try to relax.

Claire: I don't feel like relaxing, Phil! She has been in college for six weeks.

Claire: I'm not gonna lie. Sometimes it bothers me how calm Phil is under pressure. It's like… like I'm
the one who's overreacting.

Phil: That's good. Let it out. It's g…

Claire: I'm going to kill you.


Gloria: Jay, do you have some time today? We need to go and pick out a stroller.

Jay: Just get whatever you want. I mean, it's what you're gonna do anyway.

Gloria: What I want is a husband who likes to go shopping for a stroller with me.

Jay: If you had a husband who liked picking out strollers, you wouldn't be having a baby.

Gloria: Maybe because I'm turning food into a human! Jay will take you.
