Lesson 08 Ted Forms a Rock Band

泰德组建摇滚乐队

Ted plans to become a successful musician. First, he needs Susan to loan him money for a guitar. Susan suggests that Ted bake cookies to earn the money.

泰德想要成为一名成功的音乐家。首先,他需要苏珊借钱给他买吉他。苏珊建议泰特靠烤饼干来挣到买吉他的钱。

Susan: You're in good spirits today, Ted.

泰德,你今天心情不错啊。

Ted: I've got great news, Mom.

妈妈,我有个好消息要告诉你。

Susan: What is it?

什么好消息?

Ted: Amber and I are going to start a rock band!

安布尔和我要成立一个摇滚乐队!

Susan: Good for you!

那不错啊!

Ted: Mom, I'm not going to beat around the bush. I need to borrow $1,000 for a new guitar.

妈妈,我就不跟你兜圈子了。我想借1000块钱买把新吉他。

Susan: Ted, your father and I can't shell out that much. We aren't made of money.

泰德,你爸爸和我可付不起那么大一笔钱。我们都没钱。

Ted: You're not. I thought you were millionaires, like Donald and Ivana Trump!

你没钱?我一直都以为你跟川普父女一样是百万富翁呢。

Susan: Ha ha. This is no time to be a wise guy.

哈哈。这会儿卖乖可没用。

Ted: I promise I'll pay you back.

我保证我会还你的。

Susan: How?

你拿什么还?

Ted: We're going to take the music world by storm and make lots of money.

我将来会横扫音乐界,大赚特赚的。

Susan: That sounds like a pipe dream. Aren't high school rock bands a dime a dozen?

听起来就是白日梦。高中摇滚乐队不是一毛钱找一打吗?

Ted: Yeah, but we are different. With my guitar playing and Amber's beautiful voice, we're sure to make a splash.

是很多,但我们是不一样的。有了我的吉他加上安布尔美妙的嗓音,我们一定会大放异彩的。

Susan: Well, we are going through hard times. You are going to have to work for that $1,000.

可是我们正经历困难时期。你得干活来挣那1000美元。

Ted: How?

干什么?

Susan: You can bake cookies.

你可以烤饼干。

Ted: I bet Mrs. Clapton never made Eric Clapton bake cookies, but I guess those are the breaks.

我敢打赌克莱普顿太太肯定美让埃里克烤过饼干,不过我想这都是命啊。
