Some people collect stamps. Other people collect CDs. I collect movies. I’m a film buff and I have a collection of my favorite movies of all time. I usually buy a movie when it comes out on DVD, even if I’ve seen it aly on the big screen. I have a high definition TV and I like watching movies in the comt of my own home. I prefer the widescreen editions and the DVDs with a lot of bonus features. I pride myself on finding every Easter egg on every DVD I own. My friends think I’m crazy. Even if I aly own a movie, I’ll buy it again if there’s a special edition or box set with extra bloopers or deleted scenes. Even when I’m on vacation, I look DVDs. Last year, I was traveling abroad and I bought some DVDs. When I got home, though, I found out that I couldn’t play them in my DVD player because they had a different region code than the one we use in the U.S. I also bought a bootleg DVD on the street and the quality was terrible. I really learned my lesson on that trip! 81Edgar: What a crock! Ann: What is it? Edgar: I’m ing an about successful business people who were self-made men and women. I don’t believe a word of it. Ann: What don’t you believe? Edgar: These people didn’t pull themselves up by their bootstraps. They were all born with silver spoons in their mouths. Ann: Not all successful people were born into money and privilege. Edgar: That’s true, but it gets me riled up when people who grew up at the country club claim to have had humble beginnings. Ann: Just because some people were born with a leg up doesn’t mean they didn’t work hard to get where they are. Edgar: Where would that hard work have gotten them if they didn’t have backers with deep pockets, or if they didn’t know people in high places? I know plenty of hard-working people who aren’t hobnobbing with the rich and famous. Ann: That’s true enough. Who needs the rich and famous? I’ll take my hard-working man over any of them any day. Edgar: That’s why I married you – a woman with beauty and brains! 7979The apartment manager asked all of the tenants to come to a short meeting to learn about fire safety. I didnt want to go, but the manager said that there would be free food, and who am I to turn down free pizza?公寓经理要求所有的房客来参加一个简短的会议,以了解消防安全知识我不想去,但公寓经理说会提供免费食物,而我无法拒绝免费的披萨Apartment manager: Thank you all coming to this meeting about fire safety.

Woman: So you have a half day, a full day and a day and evening tour of London?Man: That's correct.Woman: Well, as we're only here a few days, I think perhaps we should take the full day and evening tour. Give my children the opporty to see everything.Man: Won't that be a bit tiring them?Woman: Yes, you're right. It's probably better if we don't include them on the evening part of the program.Man: Not the theatre and the dinner entertainment?Woman: Yes, that's what I mean. The hotel will take care of them.Man: Yes, I'm sure that can be arranged.Woman: Now, can you tell me what the cost will be?Man: the full tour? Seventy pounds per head.Woman: So that would be 0 pounds myself and my husband. What about the children, is there any reduction them?Man: Certainly, we have half price children and if they're not going to the theatre or the dinner, I think we could let them have the full day tour thirty pounds each.Woman: That's fine. Could you tell me more details of the tour? I mean, what will we be actually seeing and so th?Man: Well, here's a brochure you to , but I can quickly run through the main items of the tour with you. Now, as you see, you're picked up from your hotel at 8:30, so you must be sure to order an early breakfast.Woman: Yes ...Man: Then you're taken to see the Changing of the Guard and you'll see Buckingham Palace at the same time of course. After that you'll be taken down Whitehall to see the House of Parliament, Big Ben, you know the famous clock, and nearby Westminster Abbey. Now from there we have a river trip down the Thames towards the Tower of London. During the river trip you'll be provided with sandwiches and coffee, orange juice the kiddies. When you get to the Tower, you'll see the Beefeaters, the traditional guards of the Tower and then you'll be shown the Crown jewels.Woman: And will we have a guide during all this?Man: Of course. There's an official guide who will explain the sights to you and give a short of their historic associations in three languages, English, German and French. If you have any further questions he'll be only too pleased to answer them.Woman: Oh, that sounds perfect.Man: Now in the afternoon, you'll be taken to London Zoo a couple of hours. We try to arrange this to coincide with the monkeys' tea party. The children always enjoy that.Woman: Oh, I'm sure mine will.Man: And from there we just go round the corner to Madame Tussaud's to see the waxworks and after that right next door to the London Planetarium where you'll see the stars simulated by laser beams.Woman: That sounds very exciting. What a full day.Man: Yes, well we do let you have a couple of hours' rest bee taking you on to the theatre and dinner in the evening.Woman: Oh, that's good. I'll be able to get the children off to bed or settled down watching television or something. Well, that sounds marvellous. Thank you very much.Man: Not at all. Er ... there is just one thing, madam.Woman: Oh, what's that?Man: The cheque.Woman: (laughs) Of course. I have always been interested in making things. When I was a child I used to enjoy painting, but I also liked making things out of clay. I managed to win a prize one of my paintings when I was fourteen. That is probably the reason that I managed to get into art college four years later. But I studied painting at first, not pottery. I like being a potter because I like to work with my hands and feel the clay; I enjoy working on a potter's wheel. I'm happy working by myself and being near my home. I don't like mass-produced things. I think crafts and craftspeople are very important. When I left college I managed to get a grant from the Council, and I hope to become a full-time craftswoman. This workshop is small, but I hope to move to a larger one next year.Mr. Hanson: Could I have my bill, please?Waitress: Yes, sir. One moment, please.(She brings the bill and the customer looks at it carefully.)Mr. Hanson: Could you kindly explain this to me? What is item 6?Waitress: Perhaps I cou1d go through it you. The first item is the cover charge. Number is the beer. Then your starter, your main course and the vegetables. The main course was .50 not 3.50, so item 6 is the difference.Mr. Hanson: Oh, I see. But how was I expected to know that?Waitress: Yes, sir. They are a bit hard to follow sometimes. Number 8 is your dessert and number 9 the cigarettes. Oh, and number 7 is your second beer.Mr. Hanson: And what about the service, is that included?Waitress: Yes, that's marked down here, per cent service.Mr. Hanson: Good. Thank you. Now, can you take my credit card?Waitress: I'm afraid we don't accept credit cards.Mr. Hanson: Oh dear. What about a cheque with a banker's card?Waitress: Yes, sir. That will be all right.Customer: Can you bring me the bill, please?Waiter: Certainly, sir.(He brings the bill.)Customer: I think there has been a mistake.Waiter: I'm sorry, sir. What seems to be the trouble?Customer: I think you have charged me twice the same thing.Look, the figure of 5.50 appears here and then again here.Waiter: I'll just go and check it you, sir.(He returns a few minutes later.)Waiter: Yes sir, you are quite right. The cashier made a mistake. I think you will find it correct now.Customer: Thank you.Waiter: We do apologize about this, sir.Customer: That's all right. No harm done. Now, can I pay by traveler's cheques?Waiter: Certainly, sir. We'll give you the change in local currency if that's all right.Customer: You needn't worry about that. There won't be much change out of twenty-five dollars.Waiter: Thank you, sir. That's most kind of you.—Waiter, there's a fly in my soup.—Shh, don't do too loud. Everyone will want one.—Waiter, there's a fly in my soup.—There is a spider on the b. It'll catch it.—What's this fly doing in my soup?—I think it's doing the backstroke, sir.—There is a dead fly swimming in my soup!—That's impossible. A dead fly can't swim.—There is a dead fly in my soup.—Yes, sir. It's the hot liquid that kills them.—Waiter, there is a fly in my soup.—Yes, sir. We give extra meat rations on Fridays.—Waiter, there is a fly in my soup.—Don't worry, sir. There is no extra charge. A strange thing happened to Henri yesterday. He was on a bus and wanted to get off. So he stood up and rang the bell. To make sure the driver heard him he rang it twice, but the bus didn't stop, and the conductor came and shouted at him. The conductor was so annoyed, and spoke so fast, that Henri didn't understand a word. The bus stopped at the next bus stop and Henri got off. As he got off he heard someone say, "I think he's a eigner." When Henri got home, he told his landlady about the incident. "How many times did you ring the bell?" she asked. "Twice," said Henri. "Well, that's the signal the driver to go on," his landlady explained. "Only the conductor is allowed to ring the bell twice. That's why he got so annoyed." Henri nodded. "I see," he said.(A and B are a married couple. C is a travel agent.)C: Good morning.A and B: Good morning.C: Can I help you?A: Yes, we're thinking of going on holiday somewhere, but we're not sure where.C: I see. What sort of holiday did you have in mind?A: Lots of sunbathing.B: (at the same time) Lots of walking.C: Mm. (looking puzzled) So you'd like somewhere warm?B: Not too warm.A: Yes, as sunny as possible.C: And are you interested in the night-life at all?A: Yes. It'd be nice if there were some good discos and clubs we could go to.B: Oh, no! Surely that's what we're trying to get away from!A: What do you mean? We never go out at all, so how could we get away from it?B: Well, what's the point of going somewhere where there are lots of people just like here?C: (interrupting) Could I just ask what sort of price you want to pay?B: As cheap as possible.A: What do you mean? We want a top hotel.B: But we can't afd it.A: Of course, we can. We've been saving up all year.(Their voices rise as they argue. The travel agent looks bemused.)C: Just a minute, please. I think I can make a suggestion. Why don't you try the South of France? Then one of you can go to the beach and the other can walk in the mountains.A: That sounds like a good idea. And there are some good hotels there.B: No—there are too many English people there!A: Well, then at least we'd have someone to talk to.B: But, there's no point in going abroad to meet English people there!C: (interrupting again) Excuse me.A and B: Yes?C: Well, my wife and I have the same trouble as you. I like hot, lively places and she prefers a bit of peace and quiet and we always disagree about how much to spend. We usually split up and go to different places, but this year I've got a better idea.A and B: What's that?C: Well, I could go on holiday with you (indicates one of them) and you could go with my wife.A: That's an interesting idea.B: I'm not so sure ...C: Look, why don't you come round now and meet my wife and we can see what we can arrange ...The scene is at an airport. A man and a woman carrying several cases approach a customs officer (C.O.).Man: (whispering) Don't worry. Everything will be all right.Woman: I hope you know what you're doing!(They put their bags down in front of the customs officer.)C.O.: Good morning, sir, madam. Just returning from a holiday, are you?Woman: That's right.C.O.: And how long have you been abroad?Woman: Two weeks.Man: Yes, not very long. Not long enough to buy anything anyway. (laughing)C.O.: I see. Have you got anything to declare?Man: I'm sorry, I don't really know what you mean.Woman: Harry!C.O.: Come on, sir. I'm sure you know what I mean. Have you got anything to declare?Man: Well ... yes. I would like to declare that I love my wife.Woman: Oh, Harry. You've never said that bee.Man: Well, it's true! It's just that I've never been able to tell you bee.Woman: And I love you too!C.O.: (clearing throat) I'm sorry to interrupt, but I must ask you whether you have any goods to declare.Man: Ah, well I do have a record-player, a fridge and something my wife's birthday that I'd rather not tell you about.Woman: Harry! And I thought you'd gotten again!Man: Of course not, dear!C.O.: (annoyed) What I want to know, sir, is whether you have any goods in that bag that I should know about.Man: Well, let's have a look. (opens bag) We've got some bars of soap, a tube of toothpaste, clothes, a jar of cream ...C.O.: (angry) I only want to know if you have anything liable tax, like cigarettes, perfumes or bottles of anything.Man: Well, we do have a bottle of shampoo.C.O.: Okay. I've had enough. You can go.Man: You mean that's it?C.O.: Please go away!Woman: Come on, Harry. He just told us we could go.(Takes hold of the suitcase and the contents spill out.)C.O.: Just a minute. May I see that jewellery, please?Man: Oh, my God! You great clumsy idiot!Woman: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to.Man: You never do anything right. I don't know why I married you in the first place!Woman: But Harry! You just said you loved me.Man: Not any more.C.O.: And now what have you got to declare, sir? Sam Lewis was a customs officer. He used to work in a small border town. It wasn't a busy town and there wasn't much work. The road was usually very quiet and there weren't many travelers. It wasn't a very interesting job, but Sam liked an easy life. About once a week, he used to meet an old man. His name was Draper. He always used to arrive at the border early in the morning in a big truck. The truck was always empty. After a while Sam became suspicious. He often used to search the truck, but he never found anything. One day he asked Draper about his job. Draper laughed and said, "I'm a smuggler." Last year Sam retired. He spent his savings on an expensive holiday. He flew to Bermuda, and stayed in a luxury hotel. One day, he was sitting by the pool and opposite him he saw Draper drinking champagne. Sam walked over to him.Sam: Hello, there!Draper: Hi!Sam: Do you remember me?Draper: Yes ... of course I do. You're a customs officer.Sam: I used to be, but I'm not any more. I retired last month. I often used to search your truck ...Draper: ... but you never found anything!Sam: No, I didn't. Can I ask you something?Draper: Of course, you can.Sam: Were you a smuggler?Draper: Of course I was.Sam: But ... the truck was always empty. What were you smuggling?Draper: Trucks! The first thing they do is to put out an APB and this goes to all the police stations in the country. Next we contact the hospitals. Often the person we are looking has been in an accident. Then we might try parents, friends or relatives they might be with. We try to follow their movements and to find the last person they saw or were with. Then we try the media. We put photographs in local or national papers—especially papers they might . There are other things we can do: put posters in places they might be, go on television. Here in America there is a magazine in which there are photographs of missing children. This is often the last hope. Of course, with nearly two million missing children every year, we can't do all these things everyone. We haven't got the time, the money or the staff. Are you a morning person or an evening person? That's the question. When do you work best? me the answer is easy. I work best in the morning. All my creative work is done bee lunchtime. I get up at about eight, and then have breakfast. I listen to the radio a bit, and the papers. And I start. Usually I work from nine or nine thirty until twelve but after that I'm useless. On a good day I write fifteen hundred words or more, sometimes two thousand words, in the morning. Then after lunch I go a walk, or . In the evening I like to relax, go to the pub or go out and meet people. If you're a writer you need self-discipline. But if you're tired, it shows: the mind and body must be fresh.1. Add two and four; eight and ten; fourteen and seven.. Subtract six from eighteen; four from eleven; five from nineteen.3. Multiply two by eight; five by three; six by four.. Divide six by three; eight by two; twenty by five.1. I'll take a commission of ten per cent.. The current rate of interest is twenty-three per cent.3. I only get three-eighths of the total.. It's only a fraction of the cost, about a sixteenth.5. Divide nine by two and you get four point five.6. You only get two point four six per cent.1. I have to get a new pair of Jeans. Is there anywhere ...? Do you know a, a good shop where I can get a pair?. Look, er, I want something interesting. All I've eaten since I've arrived here is junk food. I want some good local food. Where should I go and what shall I ask ?3. The car's giving problems again. I had it serviced last week but it's as bad as it was bee. I don't know what to do about it.. Ooh, yes, I need your advice. The problem is that I have to go to this very mal dinner party next week and I haven't got a dinner suit here. I really don't want to buy one. What do you suggest?5. Ever since I've been here I had this stomach problem, you know. I mean, it's not serious. Well, I don't think it is. I mean, you often get these things when you travel. Must be the different water or something. But it rea1ly is a nuisance and it seems to be getting worse ...6. Damn! I've lost my wallet!Man: Telegram, miss.Jean: Oh, thanks.Jean: I wonder who it's from. Oh, it's Helen. Helen, there's a telegram you.Helen: me? Oh, Jean, will you open it? I hate opening telegrams.Jean: Do you? Why?Helen: Well, it's just that I think a telegram must mean bad news.Jean: I'm just the opposite. I love opening telegrams because I'm sure they must mean something exciting.Jean: Helen, you'd better sit down. You aren't going to believe this. It says, 'Congratulations, Nurse of the Year. Letter follows.'Helen: It can't be true.Jean: Here. You it. Hello. This is Sophie Peter's ringing from the Brook Organization. Um, we got your job application and I'm ringing just to arrange an interview with you. How about Monday morning at, er, :30? Would that be all right? That's Monday morning of the th of August. Um, if you can't make that time, could you please give us a ring? The interview will be with myself and Brian Shaw, so we, um, we look ward to seeing you then. Bye-bye. "Henry!" "Yes, dear?" "I'm going up to bed now. Don't get to do your little jobs." "No, dear." Henry turned off the television and went into the kitchen. He fed the cat, washed up several dishes, dried them and put them away. Then he put the cat out, locked all the doors and turned out all the lights. When he got to the bedroom, his wife was sitting up in bed ing a book and eating chocolates. "Well dear, have you done all your little jobs?" "I think so, my love." "Have you fed the cat?" "Yes, dear." "Have you put him out?" "Yes, dear." "Have you washed up the dishes?" "Yes, dear." "Have you put them all away?" "Yes, dear." "Have you tidied the kitchen?" "Yes, dear." "Have you turned out all the lights?" "Yes, dear." "Have you locked the front door?" "Yes, dear." "Then you can come to bed." "Thank you, dear." After a little while they heard a gate banging downstairs. "Henry." "Yes, dear." "I'm afraid you've gotten to shut the garden gate." "Oh dear! ..."—Ladies and gentlemen, it's the Lake Late Talk Show, with your host, Dickie Reeves. (applause)—Nice to be with you again, folks. And among the line of interesting guests I'll show you tonight is the lady you've all been ing and hearing about recently. She is beautiful. She is clever. And she is brave. She is the lady who makes friends with monkeys. She is with us tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, the apewoman herself, Josephin Carter. (applause) Hello, Josephin, or can I call you Joe?—Please do.—The first question that I know everybody has been dying to ask you is, how long have you been living with monkeys?—Apes actually. Well, I've been studying apes quite a long time, ever since I was at university. But I've only been actually living with them five years.—Five years in the African jungle, with only monkeys to talk to.—Apes actually.—Oh, with only apes to talk to. That's fantastic! And I know you're going back to your monkey colony ...—Ape colony actually.—... to finish your work.—Oh, yes. I haven't finished it yet. Although I have been recording their behavior and watching their movements very closely, I still haven't finished my work. I've also been training my husband to work with me.—Your husband?—Yes. He's come with me tonight. Let me introduce you to Tarsan!—Hi, everybody. 197

They were pushed aside. 他们被推到一旁,They complained of their lot. 嘴里还抱怨自己的命运不济,They bewailed the ingratitude of their children, but when the last wagon pulled out of the village, they stopped the driver and ced him to take them along.诅咒孩子们忘恩负义下过,最后一辆马车驶出村子时,他们叫住了车夫,强迫他把他们带走The flight into the unknown had begun.这样,投奔陌生世界的旅程开始了It was many years since the Wanderer had returned. 离那个漫游者回来的时间,已经过了很多年,It was no easy task to discover the road he had mapped out.所以要找到他开辟的道路并非易事Thousands fell a victim to hunger and thirst bee the first cairn was found.成千上万人死了,人们踏着他们的尸骨,才找到第一座用石子堆起的路标From there on the trip was less difficult.此后,旅程中的磨难少了一些The careful pioneer had blazed a clear trail through the woods and amidst the endless wilderness of rock.那个细心的先驱者已经在丛林和无际的荒野乱石中用人烧出了一条宽敞大道By easy stages it led to the green pastures of the new land.它一步一步把人们引到新世界的绿色牧场Silently the people looked at each other.大家相视无言He was right after all, they said. He was right, and the Old Men were wrong…归根结底他是对了,人们说道他对了,守旧老人错了He spoke the truth, and the Old Men lied…他讲的是实话,守旧老人撒了谎…His bones lie rotting at the foot of the cliffs, but the Old Men sit in our carts and chant their ancient lays…他的尸首还在山崖下腐烂,可是守旧老人却坐在我们的车里,唱那些老掉牙的歌子He saved us, and we slew him…他救了我们,我们反倒杀死了他We are sorry that it happened, but of course, if we could have known at the time…对这件事我们的确很内疚,不过,假如当时我们知道的话,当然就…Then they unharnessed their horses and their oxen and they drove their cows and their goats into the pastures and they built themselves houses and laid out their fields and they lived happily a long time afterwards.随后,人们解下马和牛的套具,把牛羊赶进牧场,建造起自己的房屋,规划自己的土地从这以后很长时间,人们又过着幸福的生活A few years later an attempt was made to bury the brave pioneer in the fine new edifice which had been erected as a home the Wise Old Men.几年以后,人们建起了一座新大厦,作为智慧老人的住宅,并准备把勇敢先驱者的遗骨埋在里面A solemn procession went back to the now deserted valley, but when the spot was reached where his body ought to have been, it was no longer there.一肃穆的队伍回到了早已荒无人烟的山谷但是,山脚下空空如也,先驱者的尸首荡然无存A hungry jackal had dragged it to his lair.一只饥饿的豺早己把尸首拖入自己的洞穴A small stone was then placed at the foot of the trail (now a magnificent highway). 人们把一块小石头放在先驱者足迹的尽头(现在那已是一条大道),It gave the name of the man who had first defied the dark terror of the unknown, that his people might be guided into a new freedom.石头上刻着先驱者的名字,一个首先向未知世界的黑暗和恐怖挑战的人的名字,他把人们引向了新的自由And it stated what it had been erected by a grateful posterity.石上还写明,它是由前来感恩朝礼的后代所建As it was in the beginning-as it is now-and as some day (so we hope) it shall no longer be.这样的事情发生在过去,也发生在现在,不过将来(我们希望)这样的事不再发生了 568
