Manny: My backpack's definitely not in there.

Jay: Well, they're not picking up their phone.

Manny: He must've brought it inside.

Jay: Sorry, kid. Looks like you're out of luck.

[door opens]

Gloria: Come.

Jay: Don't they have a burglar alarm?

Gloria: Ay, please.

Manny: Okay, everybody, split up and search. Jay, you look in the bedroom.

Jay: I'm not looking in their bedroom.

Manny: Fine. Mom, I don't think my backpack is in Cam's bag.

Gloria: I was just closing it for him. I heard a noise.

Jay: Looks like the guys threw a little party.

Gloria: I noticed. They brought out the guest soaps.

Jay: How long have you been in here? Hey. This is that bottle of wine I bought Phil when he started
his company.

Gloria: And Claire's lipstick is on many of these wine glasses.

Jay: Pictionary. They had game night? 

2. 绘图猜词(Pictionary)由图片(picture)+词典(dictionary)组合而得,发明于1985年,目前是孩之宝的产品。游戏参加


Gloria: But we always go to game night.

Jay: Son of a bitch. They snubbed us.

them. 冷落;怠慢

best in class.
floor routine: (体操)地板动作

Mitchell: Oh.

Cameron: She's our competition. I've never wanted to beat a kid so badly.

You said that she could stick the landing, right?

dismount: 下马;下车

Cameron: Yeah, as long as she breathes, relies on her training and stays in the zone.

Mitchell: We are talking about her stepping off a six-inch beam.

parent of a child who wasn't just participating but
thrive [θraɪv]: to become, and continue to be, successful, strong, healthy, etc. 健康成长;茁壮成长


Cameron: Okay, here comes her dismount.

Mitchell: Stick it, Lily. Stick it! [applause] She stuck it! [applause] She stuck it. Whoo!

situation 支持;给…打气;为…加油

[people gasping]

Mitchell: Yes! I don't know why I said that. I don't I'm sorry.

Cameron: Yeah. He didn't mean it.

Mitchell: I didn't mean it.

Cameron: No, um, he just got caught up. And, uh, you know, we all know competition makes people
do crazy things, so-
got caught up: 入迷

Abby's Mom: Look at this! Her bun fell apart during the floor exercise. Her hair got in her eyes, and she
couldn't even finish.

Abby: You did it on purpose!

Cameron: No!

Lily: Daddies! I'm in first place.

Mitchell: Yay. That's great.


Jay: Did you offend them?

Gloria: Me? They love me.

Manny: Can we go now? I have a poetry reading tonight. And speaking of that, are you sure you guys
really want-

Gloria: It makes no sense. We're always the life of every party.

Manny: A trait normal parents would value.
trait [treɪt]: a particular quality in your personality 特征;特点;特性

Gloria: Jay, I think you're right about him. He's been too good lately for a teenager. It's not normal. I am
afraid that the world is going to-

Jay: Oh, hell, no. This is too far. Look at this.

Gloria: Is that supposed to be-

Jay: That's us. Not only do we get blown off, now they're making fun of us. Well, I'm just gonna leave
them a little message. As far as I'm concerned, they can all- Ha!

Gloria: Horse mouth! That's a good one!

Jay: Horse mouth is not an expression. You can't get this? Look. Donkey.
donkey [ˈdɑŋki]: an animal which is like a horse but which is smaller and has longer ears 驴

Gloria: That's not a donkey.

Jay: Look at the ears.

Gloria: Okay. Donkey mouth.

Jay: That's a terrible guess.

Gloria: That's a terrible drawing!

Tony: Hello?

Jay: We weren't invited because you stink at this game.

Gloria: At least I can draw.

Tony: Excuse me. Just need a signature.

Jay: Yeah, sure. Okay. Here we go. There. Thank you.

Tony: Yep. That's not a signature. You drew a cat.

Jay: Thank you.

Claire: Perfect freaking harmony. That's when it hit me. Maybe it's not the cold confines of a moving

Phil: Are you really not gonna do anything?

Claire: Oh, Phil, you must have known this was gonna happen.

Phil: I know that tone. You're making a point.

Claire: It's better that you find out who they are now than when you're halfway across the country.

[tires squeal] [screaming]

Phil: I guess I'm just a naive boob who thought we liked each other. Obviously, it was too much to ask
