暮光之城,暮光之城电影,暮光之城简介

Bella: Hi.

Alice Cullen: Hi. You do smell good.

Edward: Alice, what are you...

Alice Cullen: It's okay. Bella and I are gonna be great friends.

Carlisle Cullen: Sorry, Jasper's our newest vegetarian. It's a little difficult for him.

Jasper: It's a pleasure to meet you.

Alice Cullen: It's okay, Jasper. You won't hurt her.

Edward: All right, I'm gonna take you on a tour of the rest of the house.

Bella: Okay.

Alice Cullen: Well, I'll see you soon.

Bella: Okay.

Alice Cullen: Cute!

Esme: I know.

Carlisle Cullen: I think that went well.

Esme: Clean this up. Now.

Edward: Was that as weird for you as it was for me?

Bella: I don't know. Graduation caps?

Edward: Yeah. It's a private joke. We matriculate a lot.

Bella: That's kind of miserable. I mean, repeating high school over and over.

Edward: True, but the younger we start out in a new place, the longer we can stay there.

妙语佳句 活学活用

1. moat: 深沟。从影片的对白我们可以知道,Bella虽然没有把Edward的家想象成深沟,但是在她的想象里,吸血鬼的居所与棺材和土牢也差不多。

2. non-stick saute pan: 不沾炒锅。non-stick pan就是我们所熟知的“不粘锅”。saute的意思是“炒的,煸的,嫩煎的”,saute也可以作名词用,意思是“嫩煎的菜肴”。

3. get a whiff of that: 闻一下那个气味。影片中Rosalie指的是Bella散发出的活人的气味。whiff的意思是“一阵(微弱的)气味”。请看例子:

Something good must be cooking; I got a whiff of it.

一定在做什么好菜,我已闻到味道了。

whiff也可以用来修饰气味之外的东西,意思是“一点点”,例如:

There is a whiff of sarcasm in it. 这里面带有一点点讥讽的味道。

4. Italiano: 意大利语,意思是“意大利的”,在文中是“意大利菜”的意思。

5. go public: 曝光,把秘密公开。影片中Emmett指Edward和Bella已经公开在一起了。看一下例子:

Before he goes public, he's got to convince everybody that he's telling the truth.

在公开秘密之前,他必须使大家相信他是准备说实话的。

6. implicate: 牵连;连累。影片中Rosalie担心如果Edward和Bella将来情感破裂的话,这个吸血鬼家族的秘密就会被世人知道,从而遭到牵连。请看例子:

His enemies tried to implicate him in the murder.

他的仇人竭力想把他牵扯进谋杀案中.

7. graduation cap: 毕业帽。美国高中毕业时也有毕业帽。

8. matriculate: 被录取入学。影片中Edward上了很多次高中,参加了很多次高考,并多次被大学录取。请看例子:

Every fall hundreds of thousands of young people matriculate in colleges and universities. 每年秋季成千上万的青年考入高等院校。

matriculate还可以作及物动词用,意思是“录取……入大学;准许……注册入学”。例如:

He had been matriculated in the university. 他已考上这所大学。
