今天李华要做心理学实验,骗Larry说她中了一百万美元,看Larry会有什么样的反应。李华会学到两个常用语:grand和catch。

LH: Larry, Larry!!

LL: Hi Li Hua. Why are you so excited today?

LH: 我中乐透了!一百万!我发财了。

LL: Oh really? Are you going to take me out to dinner?

LH: 请你吃饭?你的要求还真不高,我决定啊,分你一半!

LL: You're giving me half a million?! What's the catch?

LH: The catch...那是什么?

LL: A catch is any tricky or concealed drawback to a deal. You're definitely not giving me half a million dollars for no reason. It's okay, tell me. What's the catch?

LH: A catch是指某件好事的附带条件?哦,我明白了,你是不相信我会因为友谊分一半奖金给你,你觉得这么好的事情一定有catch, 对吗?

LL: Of course. I wouldn't give my own brother that much.

LH: 好吧,我交待。其实我没中奖啦,是心理学课要做研究。我才想要试探试探你的反应。

LL: So this is all for your Psychology class. I knew it! What if you really won a million dollars? Would you share the money?

LH: 如果我真中了奖,当然会分你一点喽。嗯,一千块!怎样,我这朋友够意思吧?

LL: You'll only give me one grand?! That's one-thousandth of a million, Li Hua! I thought our friendship was worth more than that...

LH: One ground...是一千块钱的意思吗?

LL: Yup. One grand is equivalent to one thousand dollars.

LH: 喔。所以one grand是一千块钱的意思。

LL: Yes, that's right.

LH: 那我就可以把五千块钱说成five thousand grands咯?

LL: No, no, no. "Grand" replaces "thousand dollars", so you would say five grand.

LH: 原来如此。五千块要说five grand, 因为grand代替了thousand dollars这两个词。但为什么是说five grand而不是 ive grands呢?

LL: Even though five is more than one, you still say grand because the word is already in its plural form.

LH: 喔。因为grand已经是复数了, 所以要说five grand而不是five grands, 那我懂了。

LL: Hey, so back to the topic. You're only giving me a thousand dollars?

LH: Yeah, one grand is a lot of money. 那换做是你,你会给我多少钱呢?

LL: I would give you 10 grand.

LH: 你会给我一万?你真好!Wait, what would be the catch?

LL: There would be no catch! I treat you as a very close friend.

LH: 真的?我不信。不过,catch还可以怎么用? Larry, 能不能多给我几个例子?

LL: Sure. A catch is any benefit that comes with a drawback. For example, when you go on a web site, and they tell you you have a chance to win a laptop, there's usually a catch.

LH: 你是说,某些网站如果说你有机会赢一台手提电脑,通常都要回答问卷,订阅周刊等等好多好多条件,所以这些条件就是the catch吗?

LL: Exactly. So whenever someone tells you you've won money, or a laptop, don't believe them. Or else, you're going to have to expect a big catch that goes with the benefit.

LH: 难怪有一种说法是 "天下没有白吃的午餐"。 Everything that sounds too good has a catch to it.

LL: That's very true.

LH: 但我给你一千块钱绝对没有别的企图喔!There is no catch.

LL: But I'm willing to give you ten grand!

LH: 那我也给你ten grand怎么样?

LL: Ten grand. That sounds a lot better...

LH: 那就好。对了,你等下有事吗?请我去吃牛排吧!

LL: You want me to treat you to steak? A minute ago you were only willing to give me one grand, and now you want me to treat you to steak. Ai, Li Hua!

今天李华从arry那儿学到两个常用语。一个是grand, 是一千美元的替代说法。另一个catch, 指某种好处所附带的条件。
