Lesson 25 Ted Brings Home More Good News

泰德给家里带来更多好消息

Ted tells his family that a talent agent wants to meet with him. The agent will fly Ted and Amber to New York. Nicole announces that she's been named president of the Spanish Club.

泰德告诉她的家人,一位经纪人想跟他见面。经纪人安排泰德和安布尔坐飞机去纽约。妮可宣布她已经被任命为“西班牙俱乐部”主席。

Ted: Amber and I are going to break into the music business. Last night after our concert, a talent agent asked us to meet with him in New York.

安布尔和我打算进军音乐行业。昨晚我们演唱会结束后,一位星探邀请我们去纽约和他见面。

Susan: Congratulations! We'll give you some spending money for your trip.

恭喜你!我们会给你们一些旅行用的零用钱。

Ted: No need. The agent is footing the bill for everything. And when we get there, he's going to wine and dine us.

不用了。经纪人所有花费全包了。等我们到了那里,他会好好招待我们。

Susan: He must think you're the cream of the crop.

他一定觉得你们出类拔萃。

Ted: He thinks we sound like the Goo Goo Dolls

他觉得我们听来像咕咕娃娃乐队。

Nicole: Who are they?

咕咕娃娃乐队是谁?

Ted: You're really out of it. They're a popular rock band.

你可真是落伍。他们是非常受欢迎的摇滚乐队。

Nicole: Our family is certainly on a winning streak. I was elected president of the Spanish Club today.

我们家真是好事不断。今天我当选西班牙俱乐部主席。

Ted: The Spanish Club? Big deal!

西班牙俱乐步?有什么大不了的。

Nicole: You don't get it, Ted. This is only the beginning. Today, president of the Spanish Club. Tomorrow, ambassador to Spain!

你不明白,泰德。这只是一个开始。今天当西班牙俱乐部的主席,明天就能当驻西班牙大使。

Ted: Well, Ambassador, you'll need to wrap up my chemistry homework before you leave for the Spanish Embassy.

哦,大使,在你上任去西班牙大使馆前,先把我的化学作业搞定再说吧。

Susan: A rock star and a diplomat---I'm so proud of both of you!

一个摇滚明星加一个外交官,我真为你俩感到骄傲。
