时光机终于搬回来了, 大家又开始纠结时光机的归属问题, 然后又讨论想去哪个时间, 其实想去什么时间还不都去不了,自娱自乐也不错.
HOWARD: You can't just keep it here. What if I meet a girl and say:” You wanna come up and see my time machine? It's at my friend's house." How lame is that?
RAJ:He’s got a point.
SHELDON: All right. I think we're going to need some ground rules. In addition to the expected “No shoes in the time machine." and "No eating in the time machine." I propose that we add:" Pants must be worn at all times in the time machine."
HOWARD: I was gonna put down a towel.
RAJ: I still want it on my balcony. I say we move it on a bimonthly basis.
LEONARD: That sounds fair.
SHELDON: Hold on. Bimonthly is an ambiguous term. Do you mean move it every other month or twice a month?
RAJ:Twice a month.
SHELDON: Then no.
RAJ:Okay, every other month.
LEONARD: Sheldon, you can't be selfish. We all paid for it, so it belongs to all of us. Now get out of the way so I can sit in my time machine. Okay. I am setting the dials for March 10th, 1876.
HOWARD: Good choice. Alexander Graham Bell invents the telephone and calls out for Doctor Watson.
SHELDON: Wait a minute. I wanna see that too.
LEONARD: so when it's your turn, you can.
SHELDON: But if we all go back to the same point of time, Bell's lab's going to get very crowded. He'll know something's up.
RAJ:Since the time machine doesn't move in space. You’ll end up in 1876 Pasadena.
1 He’s got a point 他说的有道理.
2 ground rules基本法则, 规则.
Everyone should observe ground rules in the team meeting.每个人应该遵守团队会议的基本规则.
3 Seconded附议, 支持的.
4 bimonthly有两个意思,隔月地,一月两次地.结果Sheldon都不愿意,Raj表示很无语.Bimonthly还有双月刊的意思,Daily日报,Weekly周报,周刊, Quarterly季刊.
5 something's up发生了一些事;发生了点儿事;有点事.
