三、二、一,开始。

What? Abe, what are you doing with that? I thought you quit cold turkey.

Abe, 你干嘛呢?我以为你当时就下定决心戒烟了。

Seriously, Abe. I thought you quit smoking.

说真的,我也以为你戒烟了。

Yeah, I did. But I do smoke once in a blue moon when I am invited out or grab a beer. That's it. I don't pipe them any more.

话是不错。不过碰上朋友小聚或者喝酒的时候我还是偶尔会抽上两根。仅此而已,我现在没整天整天抽了。

Dude, that's one of the most harmful things you can do to yourself. Just quit! Tell him, Tomas!

兄弟,最伤身的事儿里头就有吸烟。戒了吧。Tomas你快劝劝他!

Listen up, Abe. Smoking is one of the leading causes of cancer, lung disease, and long-term respiratory diseases. And then...

我跟你说啊,Abe。吸烟可是人们患癌症、肺病和慢性呼吸道疾病的罪魁祸首。还有......

You sound like my girlfriend right now. I really don't want to listen to your lecture.

你说话的语气像极了我女朋友。我现在实在没心情听你长篇大论。

No, no. Smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable death. You should stop it and you are ruining yourself.

不行,你听我说。吸烟是致死的一大原因。如果你不吸烟,那种厄运就可以避免了。你真该戒烟了,别毁了自己。

OK,OK,OK. I'll quit.I'll quit. God!

行行行,我戒还不行吗?天啊!

You heard it? I heard that. You heard it? I heard that.

你听到他说什么了吧?听到了。 你真听到了吧?对,我听到了。

I'll bet you of 100 bucks that you won't be able to quit smoking.

我拿100块打赌你肯定戒不了烟。

I'll be the referee.

我来当裁判。

Hey, this is gonna be be the easiest bet I have ever made.

嘿,这会是我赢得最轻而易举的一个赌。

For real?

你当真这么觉得?

For real.

当然!

Oh my! This is a real bet. Don't look down on me. Really!

哼,这次打赌可是来真的了。别小瞧了我,我是说真的。

You got it. You got it.

你算是拿住他了。



Hello, you guys. Welcome to another lesson at JAT English. We have new terms for you to learn and to use.

大家好,欢迎来到杰特英语。这一集我们准备了新的表达供大家学习和运用。

They are “cold turkey”, “once in a blue moon”, “grab a beer”, “make a bet”, “bucks”, and “don’t look down on me”.

这些表达包括“cold turkey”, “once in a blue moon”, “grab a beer”, “make a bet”, “bucks”, 以及“don’t look down on me”

The first term “cold turkey” was used by Jay to tell Abe that he had quit cigarettes “cold turkey”, meaning that Abe had quit smoking on the spot, immediately, right away. There was no hesitation. And he didn’t try to go back.

第一个表达是 “cold turkey”。对话中Jay对Abe说他以为Abe“当时就下定决心戒烟了”,这时候Jay用上了 “cold turkey”。意思就是Abe在当初说要戒烟的时候当场就下定决心了,而且毫无犹豫,一言九鼎,决不反悔。

The next term “once in a blue moon” is the term used by Abe to explain how rare it is for him to smoke cigarettes. That’s what the term means. “Once in a blue moon” means that it’s rare.

接下来这个表达叫 “once in a blue moon”。对话中Abe说这话是解释他只是偶尔地抽抽烟。“once in a blue moon” 就是偶尔、不经常的意思。

The following term “grab a beer” is used between friends when they want to go out and just grab a beer, to just hang out and drink a beer together and share each other’s company.

接下来是“grab a beer”。如果朋友之间想相邀出去走走、逛逛、喝点儿啤酒,或者享受欢聚时光,就可以用上这个表达。

The following term “make a bet” is gambling. It is the gamble between people where the winner shall obtain the prize. In this situation, it was “bucks”, which is our following term. “Bucks” is another way of saying “money”.

接下来的表达是“make a bet”。这个短语的意思是“打赌”,赢的人可以拿走赌注。在短片里,赌注就是100块钱,这就引出了下一个表达 “bucks”,“bucks” 是“钱”的另一种说法。

Our final term “don’t look down on me” was used by Abe to tell Jay that he should not change his opinion about him in a lesser form because Jay was so confident that he would win the money. Abe replied back by saying “don’t look down on me ”, which meant you should not think of me as someone who can not win this bet, or someone who can not overcome this unfortunate habit, that he happens to be engaged in.

最后一个表达是“don’t look down on me”。短片里Abe对Jay说了这句话,因为他觉得Jay不应该认为他没法儿成功戒烟。Jay 很自信自己能打赢这个赌,这个时候Abe对他说“don’t look down on me”。意思就是你不该认为我没法儿戒掉吸烟这个坏习惯,不该觉得我在这次打赌中会成为输家。

I hope you guys enjoyed these terms. Once again, I hope you don’t use these terms once in a blue moon, but you will use them while grabbing a beer. Thank you guys. Remember to practice. And I’ll see you guys later at JAT English. Thank you.

节目最后,希望大家能喜欢这些表达,而且不要只是偶尔用用,朋友出去聚会的时候多用上这些表达吧。记得要多加练习。咱们杰特英语再见!谢谢大家!
