摩登家庭笔记, by 李志萍.

Mitchell: Hey, guys.

Lily: Hi, Daddy.

Cameron: How was lunch?

Mitchell: Oh, it was fine. Hey, when did salmon become a thing that we put on salad?

Cameron: 2008 in the city, 2011 in the suburbs. How was Brett? What's the drama du jour?
suburb [ˈsʌbɜːrb]: an area where people live that is outside the centre of a city 城郊;郊区
du jour [duː ˈʒʊr]: currently very fashionable or popular (置于所修饰名词之后)时下流行的,时髦的 

Mitchell: Nothing.

nobody will date you when you work at the
I.R.S. I hate it. What was it this time?
I.R.S.: Internal Revenue Service (the bureau of the Treasury Department responsible for tax collections) 国税局

on there.

Cameron: Okay, why are you being so evasive?
evasive [ɪˈveɪsɪv]: not willing to give clear answers to a question 避而不谈的

Mitchell: I'm not being evasive. I– check out this new tie.

want to answer and just throw a doll in her face.
redirect [ˌriːdəˈrekt]: If you redirect your energy, resources, or ability, you begin doing something different or trying
to achieve something different. 使转向

Lily: Wait a minute.

press: (especially in compounds) a piece of equipment that is used for creating pressure on things, to make them
flat or to get liquid from them 压平机;压榨机;榨汁器

Mitchell: What's that?

Cameron: Oh, it's got to be good.

Mitchell: What?!

Cameron: Tell me.

Mitchell: No, nothing.

Cameron: Tell me.

Mitchell: There's nothing to tell!

Cameron: Tell me.

Mitchell: There's nothing to tell!

Cameron: Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me.

Lily: Here. Answer me. How does Santa Claus get to all of those houses?

Cameron: Okay, sweetie, the adults are talking right now, and look what Daddy brought you.

Lily: Whoo!

Cameron: Whoo! Mitchell, when somebody tells me something, I can't wait to get home and tell
you. Don't you feel the same?

Mitchell: Of course I do. But he — he made me promise.

Cameron: Well, you know what? We don't have to share secrets. We don't. We already share a
house, a life, a daughter. You know what? I don't — I don't know why I care so much.

Mitchell: Okay, all right, okay. He got calf implants.

Cameron: Okay, this is huge. This is huge. Who all knows? We have to host a brunch.

Mitchell: Don't you dare tell a single person, okay? He made me promise not to tell anyone,
especially you.

Cameron: Especially me?

Mitchell: Oh, please. Everybody knows you're terrible at keeping secrets.

Cameron: Okay, well, I didn't know that was my reputation. Maybe that's a secret people have
been keeping from me.

Mitchell: I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.

Cameron: Well, you did. And you know what the sad thing is? We could be laughing at someone's
calf implants right now.


Haley: Hey, what are you doing?

Alex: I'm just watching you sleep. You look so pretty.

Haley: Okay, but don't breathe so loud. Hey, where are you going?!

their photographs, and Haley was one of them.

Claire: Amazing! Are there more than five people in the class?

Alex: Yes. That's the first thing I checked.

Claire: Wow. Then we really do have to be there. Call Uncle Mitchell and grandpa and see if they
can join us. She didn't catch you snooping, did she?

Alex: No. She's taking a nap.

Claire: She's been taking a lot more naps lately. See what you can find out about that.

Phil: This is so wrong.

high. They're making a movie… without me!

Claire: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Then why would Luke have lied about going to Sammy's, huh?

Phil: Honey, look.

Claire: Oh, God. Well, he's still our little boy. Oh, we got to get out of here. He cannot know we
were spying on him. Come on.
