Joey: Oh, like you've never gotten a little rambunctious with Ross.

Monica:Joey, this is sick, it's disgusting, it's, it's—not really true, is it?

Joey:Well, who's to say what's true? I mean...

Monica:Oh my god, what were you thinking?

Joey:All right, look, I'm not proud of this, ok? Well, maybe I am a little.

Monica:(hits him lightly) Oh!

Joey: Ow!

Monica:(leaving) I'm outta here.

Joey: Wait, wait, wait. You want him, I want her. He likes you.

Monica: Really?

Joey:Yeah. I'm thinking, if we put our heads together, between the two of us, we can break them up.

 

【口语讲解】

1.It's like...cocktails in Appalachia :太离谱了!Appalachia是美国东部的山区,比较保守,在那里出现鸡尾酒就像可就像乱伦一样了,monica只是有点夸张的比喻那“兄妹”的行为。

2.I'm not proud of this:我也不喜欢这样。

3.I'm outta here:我要走了。

outta= out of

例:outta control= out of control

comin = coming

wanna= want to

be gonna = be going to,口语常见用法。注意前面要be,后面跟动词原形。

例一:Are you gonna be there if I was down? 我失意的时候你会在吗?

例二:I'm gonna run away and never say goodbye. 我要逃掉,不辞而别。

例三:I am gonna be there at 3:00. 我三点时会到那。

(这句话也可以说成。"I am going to be there at 3:00." 或是"I will be there at 3:00." 也是蛮常用的。此外,老美也喜欢说,"I will catch you there." 例如二个人约好要在体育馆见面,你就可以说,"I'll catch you in the gym.")

gotta=got to (相当于have to 不得不、必须)

例一:There's something I gotta tell ya. 我有点事要和你说。

例二:I've gotta get outta here .我得离开这儿了。

例三:I've gotta catch the bus. 我要去赶公共汽车了。

我们在一起商量了一下,订出了一个计划。

例句二:If we put our heads together we can probably thresh out a workable scheme.

如果我们集思广益,也许能琢磨出一个切实可行的方案。
