《破产姐妹花》自播出以来一直因抵死搞笑毁三观的台词为各位美剧迷所称道,请大家继续关注。

C:Hmm, caught you dreaming.
嘿,让我逮到你有梦想了吧!
M:All right, so maybe I thought about it for, like, a second when we first became a team. But then I remember the world's a dead-end and nothing good happens ever to anyone. There's a gun in the drawer. Do you want to just kill ourselves?
行吧,我是曾经想过有那么一秒钟,在我们刚刚组队那会。但我想起人生就是个死胡同,好事永远也不会降临。柜子里有把枪,不如现在就饮弹自尽吧。

MAX和CAROLINE讨论上电视参加烘焙蛋糕比赛博取一夜成名。catch sb. doing sth.,逮到某人做某事。如:Joan was caught cheating in the exam.Joan考试作弊被逮住了。

dead-end,口语常用词,形容”无出路的、棘手的“,常常喻指“没有出路的死胡同“。如:He was in a dead-end job however, doing accounting work that became routine. 不过他遇到了工作的死胡同:做着例行公事的会计工作。

S: You have huge opportunity with duza day. but you pass on the real job waiting for your big break on the TV show, just like everyone else in America. So you tried to take a shortcut to success, and you end up with a mouth full of confetti.
本来你们有大好的接活机会,但你们不干这正经话选择不切实际的上电视找突破。你们美国人都这样。想靠旁门左道,走捷径取得成功,下场就是满嘴的碎纸花。

姐妹上电视参加蛋糕比赛铩羽而归,SOPHIE撒碎纸花讽刺她们不切实际。小编觉得这番话虽然简单,但还是挺有哲理的。pass on, 正式语中指传递、转给,美俚中表示”放过…不要“,这里是放过的意思。如:I'll pass on the fried potato crisp, but take the porridge.
炸土豆片我不吃了,粥还是要喝的。

take a shortcut,走捷径、旁门左道;end up with sth.以……告终、以……结束(常常指不好的结果),如:As a woman, once you fall in love with someone married, no matter how much the man loves you, you are doomed to end up with tragedy. 作为一个女人,一旦你沦为别人的情妇,做别人婚姻的第三者,不管那个男人多么爱你,你最终都注定以悲剧收场。

These little changes will really add up over time, and you’ll end up with major changes in your life after a year or two. 随着时间的推移,这些小小的改变累加起来在一年或两年后就会给你的生活带来较大的变化。

C:We went on television with the ridiculous expectation to make it over night. But that's not who we are. We're gonna have to do it the hard way. Slow and steady.
我们上电视就只是心里想着能不努力就成功。但这条路不适合我们。我们只能靠苦干实干,稳扎稳打。

CAROLINE觉得SOPHIE说得对,决定还是回归原始稳扎稳打的方式继续小蛋糕生意。make it over night,一夜成功、一夜成名。
