对话

In the police station

在警察局

Sergeant: Any news on the Jones Case, detective?

有琼斯案的消息吗,警探?

Detective: I followed up on an idea that one of the neighbors gave me. He told me that Mr. Jones had recently lost a lot of money in a business deal. But the money he lost was actually borrowed from a friend. Maybe this friend wanted to get even with Mr.Jones.

我跟进了一个邻居给我的主意。他告诉我琼斯先生最近在一笔生意中损失了很多钱。但是他损失的钱实际上是从一个朋友那里借来的。也许这个朋友想报复琼斯先生。

Sergeant: Any idea who the friend was?

知道那个朋友是谁吗?

Detective: Up to now, we have found more than eight letters from a woman named Martha Dixon. And several of the letters mention an "investment" of $10,000.

到目前为止,我们已经发现了来自一位名叫玛莎·迪克森女士的8封信。其中几封信提到了一笔1万美元的“投资”。

Sergeant: Jones lost $10,000 of Dixon's money? No wonder she was mad at him!

迪克森把琼斯的一万元钱亏了?难怪她生他的气!

Detective: In light of what I have learned, I think we should ask Martha Dixon some questions.

据目前的线索,我认为我们该找玛莎·迪克森问话。

Sergeant: At her home or here in the sation? It is up to you.

在她家里还是在这里?你来定。

Detective: Let's visit her at home.

我们去她家吧。

Idioms in Context

上下文中的习语

One day a man was preparing to leave on a trip. He often traveled on business back and forth between New York and his home in Boston. His wife was carrying out his suitcase to the car when it suddenly opened. Inside were shorts, shirts, sandals, and a swimming suit. In light of the fact that her husband had packed all of his casual clothes, she started to doubt that he was going on a business trip.

一天,有个人正准备出门旅行。他经常出差往返于纽约和他在波士顿的家。他的妻子正把他的手提箱搬到车上时,箱子突然打开了。里面有短裤、衬衫、凉鞋和游泳衣。考虑到她丈夫已经把他所有的便装都打包好了,她开始怀疑他是不是要出差了。

The next day, she fallowed up on her suspicion by calling the airline that her husband traveled on. She asked the man at the airline, "Can you tell me how many frequent flyer miles my husband and I have?"

第二天,她因为怀疑而打电话给她丈夫乘坐的那家航空公司。她问航空公司的工作人员:“您能告诉我我和我丈夫的飞行里程是多少吗?”

The man looked up their account and told the woman, "Up to now, you have almost 100,000 miles if I include your husband's most recent flight."

男子查了一下他们的账户说:“到目前为止,如果算上您丈夫最近乘坐的航班,你们已经飞行了近10万英里了。”

The woman was surprised. She said, "That doesn't make sense. How did my husband collect so many miles flying to New York?"

女人很惊讶。她说:“这没道理。我丈夫怎么飞了这么多英里到纽约?”

The man at the airline told her, "Those miles include his flights to New York and his flight to the Bahamas."

航空公司的那名男子告诉她,“这些里程包括他飞往纽约和巴哈马的航班。”

The Bahamas! the woman thought. "No wonder I can't find the sunscreen!" The woman knew just how to get even with her husband. Now that she knew her husband was having fun without her, she would also go on vacation! She wanted to use up all of the frequent flyer miles by going as far as she could.

“巴哈马!”她心想。“难怪我找不到防晒霜!”这个女人知道怎样报复她的丈夫。现在她知道她的丈夫没有她也会玩得很开心,她也会去度假!她想用完所有的飞行里程,去得越远越好。

I'd like to reserve a ticket for myself, please she said, "When is your next flight?"

她说:“我想为自己订一张机票,下一趟航班是什么时候?”

There are two flights leaving this afternoon: one to Chicago and one to Paris. It's up to you.

“今天下午有两个航班起飞:一个去芝加哥,一个去巴黎。您要哪一班。”

Paris would be perfect! the woman smiled.

“那就去巴黎吧!”女人笑了。
