  感谢各位宝宝对“Monica带你浅撩《生活大爆炸》中的那些GRE词前几期的支持,今天是这个系列的第五期作品啦~今天Monica老师带你开船,边浪边撩《生活大爆炸》中的那些GRE词)努力每周产粮!

  Leonard失恋33天之round 4: 振作

  - Sheldon: Oh, come on. Leonard...this is obviously about Penny.

  -Leonard: It doesn't matter. The woman's not interested in me. The woman rejected me.

  - Sheldon: Okay, look, I think that you have as much of a chance of having a sexual relationship with Penny as the Hubble telescope does of discovering at the center of every black hole is a little man with a flashlight searching for a circuit breaker.Nevertheless, I do feel obligated to point out to you that she did not reject you. You did not ask her out.

  -Leonard: You're right. I didn't ask her out. I should ask her out.

  -Sheldon: No, no, now that was not my point. My point was don't buy a cat.

  -Leonard: No, but you're right. I should march over there and ask her out.

  -Sheldon: Oh, goody, we're getting a cat.

  失恋中的Leonard各种走调地唱悲伤情歌甚至打算养猫,暗中观察的谢耳朵试图说服Leonard不要养猫,并且指出Leonard失恋的原因是因为他从来没有约会Penny(重点: 劝说Leonard不要养猫)。Leonard突然醍醐灌顶,觉得自己应该去大胆约会Penny(重点: 纯纯的暗恋似乎出现一丝曙光)。

  场景词汇:我们一起来学习对话中出现的【nevertheless】这个词。(nevertheless经常作为GRE填空中的线索词,表转折,转折前后取反)【类似功能的词还有: but, yet, however, nonetheless】

  Leonard失恋33天之round 5: 约会Penny

  -Penny: Oh, hey, Leonard.

  -Leonard: Good afternoon, Penny. So, hi... hey. Uh...I was wondering if you had plans for dinner.

  -Penny: Uh, you mean dinner tonight?

  -Leonard: There is an inherent ambiguity in the word "dinner”. Technically it refers to the largest meal of the day whenever it's consumed, so to clarify here, by dinner I mean supper.

  -Penny: Supper?

  -Leonard: Or dinner. I was thinking 6:30 if you can go. Or a different time.

  -Penny: Uh, 6:30 is great.

  -Leonard: Really? Great.

  -Penny: Yeah, I like hanging out with you guys.

  -Leonard: Us guys?

  -Penny: Yeah, you know, Sheldon, Howard, Raj,who all's coming?

  -Leonard: They... Might all be there? Or a subset of them might be there. Algebraically speaking, there are too many unknowns. For example, Sheldon had Quiznos for lunch. Sometimes he finds that filling, other times he doesn't. It's no fault of Quiznos- they have a varied menu.

  -Penny: Okay, whatever. It sounds like fun.

  鼓足勇气的Leonard来到了Penny家门口,邀请Penny一起共进晚餐,并向Penny解释什么是“dinner”。然而Penny把Leonard两人单独共进晚餐的请求误认为是一群好基友一起聚餐。

  场景词汇:

  我们一起来学习对话中出现的【ambiguity】这个词。【n. 模棱两可,含糊】【词根拆解: ambi-“两边”+ ig-“做”+ uity】【派生词: ambiguous adj. 模棱两可的,不明确的 unambiguous adj. 清楚的,明确的】【同义词: equivocal adj. 模棱两可的,含糊的】【反义词: settled adj. 确定的】

  Leonard失恋33天之round 6: 约会前综合症-Leonard: How do I look?

  -Sheldon: Could you be more specific?

  -Leonard: Can you tell I'm perspiring a little?

  -Sheldon: No. The dark crescent shaped patterns under your arms conceal it nicely. What time is your date?

  -Leonard: 6:30

  -Sheldon: Perfect. That gives you two hours and 15 minutes for that dense molecular cloud of aromas to dissipate.

  -Leonard: Is it too much?

  -Sheldon: Not if you're a rugby team.

  -Leonard: By the way, if it should ever come up, you didn't join us because you stuffed yourself with a chicken carbonara sub at Quiznos.

  -Sheldon: Why would I join you?

  -Leonard: No reason. Oh, you know what, maybe this isn't such a good idea.

  -Sheldon: Oh, no, well, now there's always the possibility that alcohol and poor judgment on her part might lead to a nice romantic evening.

  -Leonard: You're right. Alcohol, poor judgment—it could go well.

  -Sheldon: Of course there is the other possibility that this date kicks off a rather unpleasant six months of the two of you passing awkwardly in the hall, until one of you breaks down and moves to another zip code.

  -Leonard: You could've stopped at it could go well.

  -Sheldon: If I could've, I would've.

  赴约前的Leonard十分紧张,汗流不止,甚至有了取消约会的念头。谢耳朵不动感情的“安慰”道:酒精和糊涂可能会让约会十分顺利。Leonard听完觉得很有道理的样子,谢耳朵继续补充道,也有可能约会失败,导致两人在之后的6个月很难熬,在走廊里只能尴尬得擦肩而过,直到其中一人崩溃,并搬到别的州。

  场景词汇:

  1)注意对话中出现的【specific】这个词。【adj. 明确的,特定的】【派生词: specialization n. 专门化】【反义词: nebulous adj. 模糊的】

  2)注意对话中出现的【conceal】这个词。【v. 隐藏,掩盖】(这个词经常作为GRE填空中的线索词,连接的前后两个对象之间取反)【类似功能的词还有: belie, mask, veil, obscure】

  3)注意对话中出现的【lead to】这个短语。【导致】(这个短语经常作为GRE填空中的线索词,表因果,因与果的部分同义对应)【类似功能的短语还有: result in, result from, stem from, derive from】
