  5.11 The One With All The Resolutions
  Joey makes it possible for Monica and Chandler to kiss at midnight on New Years, by arranging kisses between Ross and Phoebe, and Rachel and himself.
  Everyone makes resolutions: Ross will do one new thing everyday;
  Chandler will stop making fun of his friends... for at least a week;
  Rachel won't gossip;
  Joey will learn the guitar;
  Monica will take more pictures of everyone together;
  and Phoebe will pilot a commercial jet.
  While on a date with a new girl (Elizabeth Hornswoggle) Ross' new pair of leather pants is so hot and tight that he can't get them back on after taking them off to cool down in the bathroom.
  He calls Joey for advice, which leads to attempts first with powder and then with lotion, which just make things worse.
  Joey's guitar teacher is Phoebe, who doesn't know any actual chord names.
  Rachel finds out about Monica and Chandler, and is dying to tell someone;
  she tries to tell Joey but he's so tired of keeping secrets, he won't listen.
  Chandler can't stand holding in(v.约束 抑制) the wisecracks(n.俏皮话). ________________________________________[Scene: Monica and Rachel's, Monica and Rachel are hosting a New Year's party. So the place is crowded and in a shameless promotion for NBC they're watching Jay Leno's coverage of New Year's from Time Square.]

  NBC:(a former acronym[n.只取首字母的缩写词] for National Broadcasting Company) is an American television network headquartered in(v.总部设在) the GE Building in New York City's Rockefeller Center. It is sometimes referred to as the Peacock Network due to its stylized(adj.程序化的 格式化的)peacock(n.孔雀) logo.The network is now part of the media company NBC Universal, a unit of General Electric (GE) and Vivendi, and supplies programming to more than 200 affiliated U.S. stations.Formed in 1926 by RCA, control of NBC passed to GE in 1986 following GE's $6.4 billion purchase of RCA(Radio Corporation of America n.美国无线电公司). Since this acquisition, the chief executive of NBC (now NBC Universal) has been Bob Wright, until he retired, giving his job to Jeff Zucker.
  Jay Leno (born James Douglas Muir Leno April 28, 1950) is an Emmy-winning American comedian who is best known as the current host of NBC television's long-running variety and talk program 《The Tonight Show》. He also owns Big Dog Productions, a company that co-produces the show.

Times Square is principally defined by its lighted and animated advertisements
  Jay Leno: (On TV to Dick Clark) Is there any entertainment there? What are people doing?
  Richard Wagstaff "Dick" Clark (born 30 November 1929):is an American television personality(n.名人) and businessman, serving as chairman and CEO of Dick Clark Productions.

He is recovering and still needs the help from his wheelchair, but he is able to walk. With some speech ability still impaired(v.削弱), Clark made a dramatic return to his New Year's Rockin' Eve show on December 31, 2005. Subsequently, he has appeared at the Emmy Awards on 27 August 2006 and the New Year's Rockin' Eve show on 31 December 2006.

  [Cut to Elizabeth Hornswoggle's bathroom, Ross frantically pulls his shirt out and drops his pants. He exhales in sheer ecstasy as the coolness of the bathroom envelops his legs. He sits on the cast iron bathtub, again gasping in pleasure. He next grabs a magazine and starts to blow air on his exposed legs, but that doesn't work the way he wants it to. So he throws the magazine down, looks around for another idea, and finds one. He jumps up and hops to the sink. He turns on the water and starts to splash some on his legs, cooling them further.]

  Phoebe: Oh, fine! Take his side! (Storms out.)

  Monica: (on phone) I can't wait to be with you! I'll sneak over as soon as Ross picks up Ben. I'll just tell Rachel I'm gonna be doing laundry for a couple of hours.

  Vaseline:凡士林的发现早在1859年,其原名为“petroleum jelly”,其中“petroleum”是石油,而“jelly”则是像果酱般的胶状物,原本为石油探钻的副产品之一。之后,有一位名为RobertChesebrough的科学家将这些白色的胶状物分离出来,并将之命名为“Vaseline”,在大家逐渐发现凡士林的多种用途后,这位Chesebrough的荣华富贵当然也是享用不尽了。在特性上,凡士林极具防水性,不易和水混合,它的许多应用也正因这项特性而来。所以,如同先前提到的,凡士林的确是一种非常好的保湿用品。加上它本身的味道十分淡,对于对一般润肤产品所添加之香味、酒精过敏的人再适合也不过了。除了脸部、手脚皮肤外,气候干燥时,也可以试着在鼻腔内涂上点凡士林,以避免鼻腔内膜因太干燥而流血。家里有人流鼻血时,也可以凡士林帮助止血。此外,感冒流鼻水时也可以在鼻子周围的皮肤涂上凡士林,以免擤鼻涕擤多了变成个红鼻子。另有一说法是有富贵手困扰的人可以在睡前将双手涂满凡士林,之后戴上薄薄的棉布手套睡觉,据说能有效改善富贵手的情形。其次,凡士林的护唇效果也是无人可比的,它的油脂成份还可以让您的双唇有水亮亮的感觉。有兴趣的话,还可以将凡士林加点您喜欢的口红,放入微波炉稍微加热软化一下,混合均匀后置入一小化妆盒,如此一来,您便拥有个人专属的护唇膏了。如果真是那么爱美的话,建议您在眉毛上涂上一点点凡士林,除了可以顺顺眉毛外,还可以让眉毛的颜色看起来深一点,省去画眉毛的手续。 之前,提到凡士林可以缓和流鼻血的情形,其实任何小伤口涂点凡士林都有止血的效果,轻微的烫伤也可以涂上凡士林来减缓疼痛。家中有小宝贝的人,可将凡士林涂在小宝贝的屁股上来预防尿布疹,在帮小婴儿量肛温之前也可以在温度计上涂点凡士林润滑以减少不适。 除了人体外,凡士林还可以用在许多家具、机械等等来防锈、润滑、补裂痕等,薄薄地涂在相机镜头上竟可以制造出柔焦效果般的朦胧美,不过,这是题外话了。在价钱上,一罐几十块钱的凡士林大概可以让您用个好几年,所以既便宜又好用,称之为神奇的凡士林可说是当之无愧。
  Ross: Ohh, I-I see lotion, I have lotion! Will that work?
  lotion n.乳液
  Joey: Yeah, sure, spread some of that on there.
  Ross: Hold on.
  (Ross proceeds to apply copious amounts of the lotion on his legs. He literally starts spraying the back of his legs with the lotion, and as he applies some to his butt he makes a happy face like he enjoyed that sensation. After using about half the bottle he again tries to pull up his pants, but at the first sign of resistance, his hand slips off of the pants and hits him in the forehead.)

  Rachel: (entering) Joey, do you have a minute你有空吗?

  Joey: And you're not supposed to be gossiping!!
  Rachel: I know, I know! I just can't keep this one in, so I pick up the phone… (Joey in a childish attempt to not hear what Rachel is about to say, puts his fingers in his ears and starts to scream loudly. Rachel turns and walks out upon seeing that Joey's not gonna listen, and as she exits Chandler walks in and sees Joey in his current state.)
  Joey: I'm not listening to you!
  (Chandler seeing that Joey has his eyes closed sneaks over and picks up the chicken. The chicken starts flapping its wings in protest as Chandler holds the chicken inches from Joey's face. Joey stops yelling and upon opening his eyes sees the chicken, screams, and falls to the ground in horror.)

  Ross: All right, I'm coming out. Hey, can you turn the lights off.
  Elizabeth: No, let's just leave the lights on.
  (Ross opens the door and steps into the living room. He has fully removed his pants and holds them wrapped into a ball in front of his crotch. His legs are covered in the powder and lotion paste. He looks terrible.)
  Elizabeth: Oh my God!
  Ross: I had a problem.
  [Scene: Central Perk, Joey is there to apologize to Phoebe.]
  Joey: Hey, Pheebs?
  Phoebe: Oh, I can't talk to you! I don't have a fancy ad in the Yellow Pages!

  Joey: Look, Pheebs, I just, I wanna apologize for, for saying that your method was stupid and-and maybe ask you to be my teacher again. And-and I promise, I won't touch a guitar until you say I'm ready. (After a short pause she hands him her guitar.) You really think I'm ready?
  Phoebe: Uh-huh!

  Joey: Well, then it wouldn't be a secret. So yeah, that would be okay. Yeah. Yeah!

  pry vi.刺探 打听
  Rachel: Come on Joey!!!
  Joey: Rach, I told you everything I knew last night! Look, it's not that big of a deal, so Monica and Chandler are doing it.
  Rachel: I can't believe you would say that!
  Joey: Sorry. Monica and Chandler are making love.
  Rachel: No! I mean come on! This is a huge deal! (She sits next to him on the couch.) Fine I want—I need more details, who-who initiated the first kiss?
  Joey: (thinks) I don't know.
  Rachel: God, just cannot imagine Chandler being romantic.Is he romantic with her?
  Joey: I don't know.
  Rachel: Are they in love?
  Joey: (thinks) I don't know.
  Rachel: You don't know anything.

  Opening Credits
  [Scene: Central Perk, everyone is there as Ross enters.]
  Joey: Hey Ross!
  Phoebe: Hey!
  Ross: (disinterested) Hey-yeah.(He hurries up to the counter.) Hey Gunther, can I have a scone please? (To the gang.) Wanna hear some good news?
  disinterested adj.不感兴趣的 不关心的 冷漠的/A scone:is a bread thicker than a bannock[n.(英国北部的)一种薄麦饼]. It is made of wheat, barley(n.大麦) or oatmeal(n.燕麦片), usually with baking powder(n.发酵粉) as a leavening(n.酵母 发酵物) agent[<化>剂] and usually goes well with fried sausage(n.油炸香肠) in a buttered roll(n.黄油涂层). The pronunciation in the United Kingdom is open to debate. Some sections of the population (nearly two thirds of the British population and 99% of the Scottish population, according to one academic study) pronounce it as /sk&#594;n/ (to rhyme with gone), and the rest pronounce it /sk&#601;&#650;n/ (to rhyme with cone). According to Merriam-Webster, the word scone derives perhaps from the Dutch schoonbrood (fine white bread), from schoon (pure, clean) and brood (bread). <英>烤饼 司康
  Chandler: Is somebody else gonna give it to us? Because you certainly don't seem like you have any.
  Ross: NoNoNo, I do. Someone I know is getting married! Yeah! And weddings are happy occasions! Oh, by the by,it's my ex-wife Emily!
  by the by<俚>Another way of saying "by the way".
  All: What? Oh!
  Chandler: Sorry man.

  pound vi.连续重击/oblivion n.遗忘 失去感觉
  Chandler: Did they teach you that in your anger management class?
  Phoebe: Hey, you know what might help you deal with it? Think of it this way, you and Emily are in the past and you can't be mad about the past. So are you still mad about the Louisiana Purchase?
  Louisiana Purchase:罗斯得知埃米莉马上就要又结婚了非常难受,菲比等人就劝慰他说:一切都过去了?你不应该为过去感到难过。你现在还为“路易斯安那大采购”难受吗?路易斯安那是美国中西部的一大块地方,新生的美国从法国手里以低廉的价格购得,成为了未来美国的发展基础,这次购买行动史称“路易斯安那购地”。这是一笔美国占了超级大便宜的买卖,所以瑞秋就告诉菲比,没有人为这个过去而难过。搞笑的菲比说:“对啊,没有人难过,这正是我想说的.”/The Louisiana Purchase:was the acquisition by the United States of French claims to approximately 530,000,000 acres (828,000 sq mi or 2,100,000 km&sup2;) of territory in 1803, at the cost of about 3&cent; per acre (7&cent; per ha); totaling $15 million or &#8355;80 million. Including interest, America finally paid $23,213,568 for the Louisiana territory.The land purchased contained all of present-day Arkansas[n.阿肯色州(美国中南部的州)], Missouri, Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota south of Mississippi River, much of North Dakota, nearly all of South Dakota, northeastern New Mexico, northern Texas, the portions of Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado east of the Continental Divide, and Louisiana on both sides of the Mississippi River, including the city of New Orleans. (The Oklahoma Panhandle[n.狭长的土地], and southwestern portions of Kansas and Louisiana were still claimed by Spain at the time of the Purchase.) In addition, the Purchase contained small portions of land that would eventually become part of the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The land included in the purchase comprises around 23% of the territory of the modern United States. The purchase was an important moment in the presidency of Thomas Jefferson. At the time, it faced domestic opposition as being possibly unconstitutional(adj.违反宪法的). Although he felt that the Constitution did not contain any provisions(n.规定) for acquiring territory, Jefferson decided to purchase Louisiana because he felt uneasy about France and Spain having the power to block American traders' access to the port of New Orleans.
  Rachel: Pheebs, I don’t think anyone's mad about that.
  Phoebe: Exactly! Because it's in the past!
  Joey: (eyeing the flattened scone) Anybody gonna eat that?
  eye vt.看 注视/flatten v.变平
  [Scene: Chandler's office, Monica and him are at a party his office is throwing.]

  Monica: Look at us all dressed up for the big office party! By the way, what are we celebrating?
  Chandler: Oh, we had a lot of liquor leftover from the Christmas party.
  Monica: I think this is so cool because none of our friends are here and we can be a real couple. We don't have to hide.
  Chandler: I know, I can do this. (He takes her hand.)
  Monica: Ooh, and I can do this. (She kisses him on the cheek.)
  (They both stand real close together.)
  Both: We can't do that. (They separate.)
  (Chandler's boss (Doug) walks up.)
  Doug: Hey Bing! (Slaps him on his ass.) (Sees Monica) Wo-ho-ho, who's the pretty lady and what the hell is she doing with you?
  Chandler: I asked myself that very question, sir. Uh, (Points to Monica) this is Monica. (Points to his boss.) This is my boss, Doug. Doug this is Monica.
  Monica: Hi, nice to meet you!
  Doug: Hi! And this is my wife Kara.
  Kara: Nice to meet you Monica. Bing! (Slaps Chandler on his butt.)
  Doug: Say uh, Bing, did you hear about the new law firm we got working for us?
  law firm<主美>法律事务所
  Chandler: No, sir.
  Doug: Yeah, Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe.(Dick'em, Stick'em & Run.)
  Dewey,Cheatum,and Howe:钱德勒的上司经常开些不着边际的玩笑,这一回他又对着钱德勒和莫尼卡说:“我们最近找到了杜威—奇特姆—豪威事务所。”这是美国一家著名的律师事务所,问题是这并不好笑,所以钱德勒只能露出一脸假笑。
  (Chandler does a fake laugh.)
  Doug: Come on honey, let's go drink our body weight让我们去喝个够吧(这个不是习惯用语 是这位大师的俏皮话).(They walk off leaving Chandler and Monica alone.)
  Monica: What was that?
  Chandler: What?
  Monica: That noise you just made?
  Chandler: Oh, that was my work laugh.
  Monica: Really? Your work laugh?
  Chandler: Oh, believe me, to survive this party, you're gonna have to come up with one too.
  Monica: All right, check me out.
  Chandler: Okay.
  (She walks up to where Doug is finishing another joke to another group.)
  Doug: …says $30 Father; same as in town.
  (Monica does a fake laugh. For the laughs, you'll have to see the episode. I can't describe them.)
  [Scene: Central Perk, Monica is buying a muffin as Chandler runs in.]
  A muffin:is a bread- or cake-like baked good. Muffins resemble cupcakes[n.<美>(波纹)纸托蛋糕]: they have cylindrical(adj.圆柱形的) bases, rounded conical(adj.圆锥的) tops, and are usually sweet, although savory(adj.可口的) varieties (such as cornbread muffins) also exist. They generally fit in the palm(n.手掌) of an adult hand, and are intended to be consumed by an individual in a single sitting. Earlier in the history of the term, muffin was used by British English-speakers to refer to a different baked good, the smaller, disk-shaped English muffin, although in contemporary(adj.当代的) usage, the principal meaning of muffin for most speakers on both sides of the Atlantic is the larger, cupcake-shaped baked good. In modern practice, muffins often have a "topping" baked in, such as blueberries or chocolate chips.
  Chandler: Hey! Everybody at work loved you last night!
  Monica: Really?
  Chandler: And! They like me more just because I was with ya! I think you repaired a lot of the damage from when they met Joey. And Doug wants us to play tennis with them. He's never even talked to me outside of work. Except for that time when we bumped into each other at that strip club. (She glares at him.) Strip church. Anyway, I'm gonna go try and find a racquet.
  racquet n.球拍
  Monica: Hey, I thought you already had one.
  Chandler: Oh I used to, but then Joey thought it would be fun to go to Central Park and hit rocks at…bigger rocks. (He starts to leave and stops an entering Rachel.) Hey Rach, do you have a tennis racquet?
  Rachel: Oh umm, y'know I lent it to Joey and I never actually got it back.
  Chandler: Okay, good luck with that. (Exits.)
  Rachel: (To Monica) Hey!
  Monica: Hi!
  Rachel: What's up?!
  Monica: What are you doing here? I thought you had to do inventory all day.
  inventory n.存货清单 存货盘存(报表) 财产目录
  Rachel: Well yeah, I do, but I decided to take a long lunch and spend some time with my friend Monica. Y'know I-I feel that we don't talk anymore. How are you? What is new with you?
  Monica: Uhh, not much. Uh, work's good.
  Rachel: Oh y'know, we don’t have to talk about work. We can talk about anything!
  Monica: Okay. Umm…
  Rachel: Hey! Y'know what? Let's talk about relationships!
  Monica: Okay, what's going on with you?
  Rachel: Nothing! You go!
  Monica: Well, I-I—there was this guy at the bank that I thought was cute umm, but I don't anymore.
  Rachel: Wow that's uh, juicy. Umm, (checks watch) y'know what though Mon, I actually do have a lot of work to do so if-if—are you sure there's just not anything else?
  juicy <口>生动有趣的 富于刺激性的

  5.14 The One Where Everybody Finds Out
  Ugly Naked Guy prepares to move, and Ross applies to sublet the apartment.
  Competition for the place is fierce, so when a bribe doesn't seal the deal[请你的客户(或交易对象)吃顿饭就搞定一庄买卖(交易)], Ross decides to cultivate and exploit a common interest—nakedness[n.赤裸].
  Phoebe, while looking at Ross' potential new apartment with Rachel, looks out the window and sees Chandler and Monica "doing it."
  Phoebe and Rachel decide to use their knowledge of this romance to play some practical jokes(n.恶作剧) on Monica and Chandler--jokes which include Phoebe making passes at [pass n.勾引手段 过分举动(+at)] Chandler.
  Monica realizes they must know, so she and Chandler play along, and each side tries to see who will crack first.

  Until he gets the apartment, looks out the window, and suddenly has a return of his rage problem.________________________________________[Scene: Monica and Rachel's, everyone is eating some Chinese food.]

A large concentration of them has remained there, especially in Armenia, but many of them are also scattered elsewhere throughout the world (see Armenian diaspora[n.散居在外的人]). In accordance with(adv.依照) most western sources, they have populated Eastern Anatolia for over four thousand years. Some western sources maintain that Armenians appeared in Eastern Anatolia as late as 700-600 BC, when nomadic(adj.游牧的) tribes settled in the former Kingdom of Urartu. Apart from Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, there are a large number of Armenians in diasporan communities scattered around the world. The Armenians have had a significant prescence in countries such as Russia, Georgia (country) and Iran due to their proximity to Armenia. After the Armenian Genocide(n.种族屠杀), a large influx(n.涌人) of survivors fled to France, the United States, Argentina, the Levant and other countries that welcomed the Armenians. There are an estimated 8 to 10 million Armenians around the world. n.亚美尼亚人

  The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey
  Written by: Adam Chase
  Transcribed by: Eric Aasen
  515 敲打乔伊的女孩
  与此同时,乔伊和Katie约会,Katie 撒起娇来喜欢捶乔伊——以此成癖。乔伊觉得无福消受,想和她说再见,但又开不了口。
  5.15 The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey
  Ross confronts Chandler about his relationship with Monica;
  at first Ross is angry, but he quickly sees the good in it.
  Ross, Joey, Rachel, and Phoebe talk about what it will be like if Chandler and Monica have kids.
  Chandler gets a bit freaked out about the idea of a lasting(adj.永恒的 持久的) commitment and ends up in an argument with Monica.
  In a misguided(adj.被误导的) effort to apologize, Chandler proposes marriage--an offer which Monica does not accept.
  Meanwhile, Joey dates Katie, a cute little woman who likes to punch Joey's arm--a lot.
  It gets to be too much for[v.非...力所能及 对某人来说太过火的] Joey, and he decides to break up with her--which he's very nervous about.
  Luckily, Katie nearly gets in a fight with Rachel and threatens to walk out on(v.抛弃) Joey if he doesn't take her side.
  He refuses and the relationship ends.
  Ross moves into his new apartment;
  The president of the tenant's committee asks him to contribute 100 dollars towards the retiring handyman's gift.
  Ross has never even met the man, so he declines.
  Everyone in the building decides(v.认定) Ross is cheap and not their kind of people, so he stubbornly(adv.固执地 顽固地) tries to win their friendship.
  Things just get worse, however, despite (and a little because of) Phoebe's efforts to help him.________________________________________[Scene: The hallway, Ross is running up the stairs. Note: This show continues where the last one left off.]
  Ross: Chandler!!! Chandler!!! (He opens the door to the apartment but is stopped by the chain; Chandler and Monica quickly stop making out and try to get dressed.) Chandler, I saw what you were doing through the window! Chandler, I saw what you were doing to my sister! Now get out here!
  Chandler: (To Monica) Wow! Listen, we had a good run. What was it? Four? Five months? I mean, that's more than most people have in a lifetime! So, good-bye, take care, bye-bye then! (He kisses her and starts to climb out the balcony window.)

  Monica: What are you doing?!
  Chandler: Oh, I'm going on the lam.
  lam v.鞭打 潜逃n.潜逃/大家都知道on the run的意思是“(为逃避警察追捕而)逃跑、躲藏”,可你知道吗,英语中还有一个俚语on the lam,也可以表示此意。Lam起源于挪威词lamja,意思是“使变残废”。16世纪,lam首次出现在英语中,当时它的意思是“使劲地打”。直到19世纪晚期,on the lam才有了“逃跑、躲藏”的意思。那么,lam的意思又是如何从“打”变成“逃跑”的呢?这还得从英语中表示“逃跑”的两个俚语beat it和lam it说起。beat和lam都有“使劲儿敲打”的意思,这样它们就形象地描述了逃跑时的情景:用双脚使劲跺地,飞速拼命地逃跑。还有一个和lam相关的词组lam into,意思是:打击 鞭笞 责骂
  Monica: Come on Chandler, come on, I can handle Ross. (They go to the door. Ross is trying to stick his hand through and undo the chain; Monica pushes his hand back.) (To Ross) Hold on! (She opens the door.) Hey Ross. What's up bro?

  Joey: (panicking) Dude! He's right there!

  mess around v.闲混 胡搞
  Monica: I'm so sorry that you had to find out this way. I'm sorry, but it's true, I love him too.

  big news n.头条新闻
  Rachel: Awww, no, it's okay, we've actually known for a while.
  (There's another pause as Ross gets angry again.)
  Ross: What? What? What?! You guys knew? (Joey and Rachel back up against the door.) You all knew and you didn't tell me?!!
  Rachel: Well, Ross, we were worried about you. We didn't know how you were going to react.
  Ross: (happily again) You were worried about me? You didn't know how I was going to react? (He hugs them both.)
  Joey: Okay, all right, whew! What do you say we all clear out of here and let these two lovebirds get back down to business? (Ross turns and glares at him.) Hey-hey-hey, I-I-I'm just talking here, he-he's the one doing your sister.

  Ross: It doesn't matter! It's my principles! We're talking about my principles!
  Rachel: Okay, I thought it was about your neighbors liking you.
  Ross: Oh, they'll like me. Once they come to my awesome PAR-TAY! Okay, I gotta run. I gotta go get some nametags. (Exits)
  Rachel: And that crazy party animal will be your brother-in-law.
  Chandler: Very, very funny, but don't say things like that in front of Monica. I don't want you putting any ideas in her head.
  Rachel: Umm, Chandler, you do realize that those ideas are probably already in Monica's head.
  Chandler: Wh-wh-why?!
  Rachel: Well, because she loves you and because you love her.
  Chandler: Yeah, so, what's that supposed to mean?!
  Rachel: Hey, Chandler, don't freak out! I'm telling you something you already know! Come on, she broke up with Richard because he didn't want to have babies. And she's a woman, and she's almost 30, and y'know it's Monica.
  Chandler: I don't see it that way. Okay? Because, I see two Monicas, the one that was my friend, who lived across the hall, and wanted to have a lot of babies and then the new Monica, who I just started to date. Now, who's to say what she wants?! I’m right. I'm right. Am I right?
  Rachel: Oh, absolutely.
  Chandler: I'm completely different from Richard. He's an eye doctor, and I don't wear glasses.
  Rachel: Yeah, you're right, you are absolutely right. I mean that makes, that makes everything different.
  Chandler: Okay. It's not different at all, is it?
  Rachel: Not unless different means the same.

  Monica: Oh and you know what I want!
  Chandler: Yes! You want babies! You have baby fever!

  Monica: You don't know everything. Did you know that I'm going out with Rachel tonight instead of you? Hmm? And did you know that the only baby around here is you?! And did you know that I can't even look at you right now?! (She storms out.)
  Chandler: Well, I did not know that.

  Monica: Chandler.
  Chandler: I'm doing this because I'm sorry?
  Monica: Do you umm, you really think the best reason to get married is because you're sorry?

  Monica: Y'know what? Y'know when I said that I want you to deal with this relationship stuff all on your own? Well, you're not ready for that.
  Chandler: I didn't think I was!
  (They hug.)
  Monica: Oh my God, what would've done if I said yes?
  Chandler: Well I would've been happy because I would've be able to spend the rest of my life with the woman that I love. Or, you would've seen a Chandler-shaped hole in that door. (Points at the door.)

  5.16 The One With The Cop
  Joey has a dream that Monica is his girlfriend;
  Monica tells him it just means he wants a relationship with the closeness that he sees between herself and Chandler.
  She suggests he try being friends with a woman before being intimate.
  After hitting on Rachel (unsuccessfully), Joey tries to make friends with new women;
  But they find his friends first approach so enticing(adj.迷人的) that they want the intimacy immediately.
  Phoebe finds a police badge under a cushion at the coffee house.
  She plans to return it but has too much fun pretending to be a cop... until she pulls it on the actual owner of the badge.
  She drops the badge and runs away;
  He tracks her down and asks her on a date.
  Ross (accompanied by Rachel) buys a new couch, but can't get it up the stairs to his apartment.________________________________________[Scene: Chandler and Joey's, Monica and Chandler are sitting on one of the chairs doing a crossword puzzle.]
  Joey: Hey!
  Chandler: Hey!
  Monica: Hey!
  Joey: What are you guys doing up?
  Chandler: Oh, we wanted to finish the crossword before we went to bed. Hey, do you know a six-letter word for red?
  Joey: (thinks) Dark red.
  dark red n.暗红
  Chandler: Yeah, I think that's wrong, but there's a Connect the Dots in here for you later. (To Monica) Hey, how about maroon?
  maroon n.褐紫红色 栗色/Connect the Dots:钱德勒正在做填字游戏,乔伊进来了,钱德勒问他:“6个字母、意思是红色的单词是什么?”乔伊不假思索地说:“深红(Dark Red)。”首先,这不是一个单词,其次它有7个字母。所以钱德勒再也不理他了,说答案错了,但我待会有一些“连点题(Connect the Dots)”可以给你做。连点题是一种4到8岁小孩玩的游戏,把一些数字的点连起来画出一样东西。钱德勒是在嘲笑乔伊的智力低下。/Connect the dots, also known as dot to dot or join the dots is a kind of paper puzzle containing a sequence of numbered dots. The puzzle is completed by drawing lines between the dots in order of the numbers, starting with a line between the dot next to the number one and the number two, and continuing on until the last number is reached. The drawn lines reveal a hidden picture.Most puzzles contain line art to supplement the image created by the lines between the dots.Connect the dots puzzles are generally created for children, though they can also be created for adults.Sometimes, the number order can be replaced with letters or other symbols.The phrase "connect the dots" is sometimes used as a metaphor to illustrate a person's ability (or inability) to associate one idea with another.
  Monica: (checks to see if it works) Yes, you are so smart! (Kisses him.)
  Joey: Aww, you guys are so cute!
  Monica: I know.
  Joey: All right, I'll see you in the morning.
  Chandler and Monica: Okay.
  [Scene: Joey's bedroom, time lapse. He's asleep and dreaming. In his dream he's doing the crossword puzzle with…wait for it…Monica!]
  Dream Monica: Y'know, I love doing crossword puzzles with you honey!
  Dream Joey: Aww, me too. Now let's finish this and go to bed.
  Dream Monica: Okay! There's only one left, three letter word, not dog but…
  Dream Joey: Cat.
  Dream Monica: Yes! You are so smart! (Kisses him.) I love you.
  Dream Joey: I love you too.
  (They hug.)

  Opening Credits
  [Scene: Central Perk, everyone is there but Ross and Joey. Gunther hands them the bill, and Chandler gives some money to pay it.]
  Rachel: (looking at the bill) Uhh, we still need a tip我们还差小费没付.
  Phoebe: All right. Hold on. (She starts digging in the chair.) I got it. Nickel! (Donates it.) How much more do we need?
  The United States five-cent coin, commonly called a nickel, is a unit of currency equaling one-twentieth, or five hundredths, of a United States dollar.The nickel's design since 1938 has featured a profile of President Thomas Jefferson on the obverse. From 1938 to 2003, Monticello was featured on the reverse. For 2004 and 2005, nickels featured new designs to commemorate the bicentennials(n.二百周年纪念) of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition; these new designs were called the Westward Journey nickel series. In 2006, Monticello returned to the reverse, while a new image of Jefferson facing forward was featured on the obverse. n.(美国和加拿大的)五分镍币
  Rachel: A couple of bucks.
  Phoebe: Okay, dime! (Donates that.) You guys should probably keep talking; this could take a while. (Finds something else.) Oh no, wait! Look it! Whoa! (Looks at it.) Oh my God, this is a police badge!
  The dime:is a coin with a face value(n.票面价值)of ten cents, or one tenth of a United States dollar. The dime is the smallest in diameter(n.直径)and the thinnest of all U.S. coins currently minted[v.铸造(硬币等)] for circulation. The 32nd President Franklin D. Roosevelt is featured on the obverse(adj.正面的) of the current design, while a torch, oak(n.像树) branch, and olive branch(n.橄榄枝) covering the motto E pluribus unum are featured on the reverse.Mintage(n.硬币) of the dime was commissioned by the Coinage Act(n.金属货币法规) of 1792, and production began in 1796. A feminine head representing Liberty was used on the front of the coin, and an eagle was used on the back. The front and back of the dime used these motifs(n.图形 主旨) for three different designs through 1837. From 1837 to 1891, "Seated Liberty" dimes were issued, which featured Liberty seated next to a shield. In 1892, a feminine head of Liberty returned to the dime, and it was known as a "Barber dime" (named for coin designer Charles E. Barber). The backs of both of the latter two designs featured the words "ONE DIME" enclosed(v.围绕) in various wreaths(n.花圈). In 1916, the head of a winged-capped Liberty was put on the dime and is commonly known by the misnomer(n.用词不当) of "Mercury dime"; the back featured a fasces[n.(古罗马代表权威的)束棒]. The most recent design change was in 1946. n.<美>一角硬币
  police badge
  Monica: Wow!
  Chandler: Oh that's so cool! Why would a cop come in here though? They don't serve donuts. (No one laughs.) Y'know what actually, could you discover the badge again? I think I can come up with something better than that.
  donut n.油炸圈饼
  Rachel: Phoebe, I bet somebody's missing that badge.
  miss vt.发觉没有 觉得遗失[eg:She did not miss her necklace until she arrived home]
  Phoebe: Yeah, I should probably take it back. Ooh, but you know what? While I'm at the police station, I could check their Ten Most Wanted lists because my friend Fritzy has been like number 11 forever, so this could be her year! (She crosses her fingers in hope.)
  The FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list arose from a conversation held in late 1949, during a game of Hearts between J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, and William Kinsey Hutchinson, International News Service (the predecessor[n.前任] of the United Press International[n.美国合众国际新闻社]) Editor-in-Chief, who were discussing ways to promote capture of the FBI's "toughest guys." This discussion turned into a published article, which received so much positive publicity(n.公开) that on March 14, 1950, the FBI officially announced the list to increase law enforcement's ability to capture dangerous fugitives.

  Monica: I'm sorry, I'll give it back to you.
  Joey: No-no! No! I mean it's gonna be all smelling like Monica!

  Joey: No! No, you smell like a meadow. (Pause.) I'm sorry. (Runs to the bathroom.)
  meadow n.草地 牧场
  Monica: What's with him?
  Chandler: Oh, y'know what? The last time Joey went to a meadow, his mother was shot by a hunter.

  Ross:What's that doing here? I don't see any doughnuts. Cops and doughnuts. Come on.If Chandler had said it you'd all be on the floor.
  The policeman's staple food/在美国常听到,警察爱吃甜甜圈,尤其最爱吃某家的甜甜圈。有位曾担任20多年警管的Mr. Glenn Norstrem退休后架设了网站,里面提到:基本上只是方便,营业时间较长罢了["Do cops really like donuts?" As far as I can tell, almost everyone likes donuts! You always hear stories about seeing cops at the donut shop and it is a typical stereotype(n.陈词滥调) about police officers. I think the stories about cops and donuts comes from the fact that police officers work odd(adj.不固定的) hours when most restaurants and stores are closed. In past years, the donut shops were all that were open at night. When an officer wanted to stop for a break, coffee and donuts were convenient. Since we are available for calls at all times, we may have to run off in a moment's notice. If you have several squads working an area and only one place is open, you are bound to see several officers there throughout the night. The donut shops are almost all gone now. Donuts have been replace with the bagel[n.百吉饼(先蒸后烤的发面圈)] and there are not many all night donut shops open anymore. I wonder what the next stereotype will be? I've never heard the question "Do cops really like bagels?" [Posted 12/3/2004 7:31 AM by Glenn Norstrem]
  Chandler: Cops, doughnuts? Me?
  [Scene: A couch store, Ross is trying to decide on a new couch for his place. He has dragged Rachel along for the trip, and she's not too happy about it. Ross is sitting on it in different ways to see how it feels. He tries to just sit on it normally, and then he tries flopping on it. One thing about this couch, it's huge. It's like twice the size of a normal full size couch. Whoever designed this thing, needs help and fast.]

  add up<俚>To be reasonable, plausible(adj.貌似真实的 貌似有理的), or consistent; make sense[eg:The witness's testimony simply did not add up]
  Rachel: Ross!
  Ross: What's that supposed to mean?

  The Salesman: Well you, her, I mean, she's very…y'know. And you're like…y'know.
  Ross: Not that it's any of your business, but we did go out.
  The Salesman: Really? You two?
  Ross: Yeah! Rach?
  Rachel: Come on, I don't really want to be doing this right now. I am carrying a very heavy couch.

  Ross: No way. They're a rip-off.And you know what else? They check out your stuff and come back later and steal it. It's true. I saw it on Dateline.
  A ripoff (or rip-off) is a bad deal. Usually it refers to an incident in which a person pays too much for something. A ripoff is distinguished from a scam(n.阴谋 骗局) in that a scam involves wrongdoing(n.败坏道德的事) such as fraud; a ripoff, on the other hand, is in the eye of the beholder(n.旁观者). A scam might involve, for instance, a scheme in which a person pays $20 for a startup kit(n.成套用具) related to stuffing envelopes for a living, but the kit never arrives; upon receiving the money, the recipient flees. A ripoff, on the other hand, might be a business opportunity in which a person pays $375 for bulk vending machines worth $75. The fact that the advertised product actually arrives – even though it is worth far less than the purchase price – makes it a ripoff, not a scam n.敲竹杠(的人)
  Dateline NBC, or Dateline, is a U.S. weekly television newsmagazine broadcast by NBC similar to ABC's 20/20 or CBS's 60 Minutes. The show, which has aired since 1992, is currently hosted by Stone Phillips and Ann Curry. Curry first co-hosted on June 24, 2005. Jane Pauley previously co-hosted. Tom Brokaw, Matt Lauer, and Brian Williams are among the NBC News correspondents(n.通讯记者) who occasionally file stories for the program. Contributing Anchors[<美>(电台或电视台)新闻节目主播] were Maria Shriver who left the job soon after her husband became governor of California in 2004. Katie Couric was also a contributing anchor until 2006, when she left NBC News. The program first originated from NBC Studio 3K, using the same set the NBC Nightly News was using at the time. When The Today Show moved to its current sidewalk(n.人行道) studio, Dateline took over Studio 3B with a brand-new set. One of Dateline's most noteworthy(adj.显著的) investigations has been To Catch a Predator, a series of hidden-camera stings focused on catching "sexual predators".
  Rachel: I love Dateline,you know,Jane Pauley is the one woman I would kiss.I don't know,there's just something about her.
  Margaret Jane Pauley (born October 31, 1950, in Indianapolis, Indiana) is an American television journalist, and has been involved in news reporting since 1975.After leaving The Today Show, Pauley hosted Real Life with Jane Pauley and served as deputy anchor for NBC Nightly News.From 1992 to 2003, Pauley co-hosted NBC's Dateline NBC. In 2004, she returned to television as host of The Jane Pauley Show, a syndicated[adj.报业联盟的] daytime talk show. On the show, she discussed, at length(adv.详细地), her problems in dealing with bipolar (两极分化的)disorder.Much like her earlier attempt at solo hosting following her Today tenure, The Jane Pauley Show never gained attraction in the ratings, and was cancelled after one season. Since her talk show's cancellation, she has neither made appearances on television programs, nor announced plans to do so in the future.

  Rachel: Yeah, fine. I listened to your dumb story.

In 1964, King became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (for his work as a peacemaker, promoting non-violence and equal treatment for different races). On April 4, 1968, King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee.In 1977, he was posthumously(adv.死后地) awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Jimmy Carter. In 1986, Martin Luther King Day was established as a United States holiday. In 2004, King was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. King often called for(v.提倡 要求) personal responsibility in fostering world peace. King's most influential and well-known public address is the "I Have A Dream" speech, delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial(纪念活动)in Washington, D.C. in 1963.
  Joey: Well, it involved Monica.
  Chandler: You had a dream about a girl that I am seeing?! Oh, that is so cool! (To Monica) I can't tell you how many times I've dreamt about a girl that he was seeing. (Seeing Monica's stare.) (To Joey) Anyway we're talking about your dream. (To Monica) I love you. (To Joey) Your dream? (Leans in to listen closely.)
  Joey: Don't worry, there wasn't any sex in it or anything. I haven't dreamt about her like that since I found out about you two--ish.
  这个 ish 是sh*t 的意思,起源是因为当时在电视和广播中不允许出现脏字,所以做 rap-songs 的人就把 sh*t 里的字母顺序颠倒组成了 ish ,这样说唱才得以进入电台广播。
  Monica: What was the dream about?

  10-4<俚>APCO (Association of Public Safety Communication Officials)ten-code for "I understand your transmission"/Ten-codes:properly known as ten signals, are code words used to represent common phrases in voice communication, particularly in radio transmissions. The codes, developed in 1937 and expanded in 1974 by the Association of Public Safety Communication Officials (APCO), allow for brevity[n.(话语)简短] and standardization(n.标准化) of message traffic. They have historically been widely used by law enforcement officers in North America, although the trend is away from their use in recent years with more departments discouraging the use of ten-codes and encouraging "clear" or plain language communications.While "ten codes" were intended to be a terse(adj.简洁的 扼要的), concise, and standardized system, the proliferation(n.增殖 激增 扩散) of different meanings has rendered(v.致使) it useless for situations where people from different agencies and jurisdictions(n.司法机构) need to communicate. For this reason its use is expressly forbidden in the Incident Command System.Some organizations and municipalities(n.市政当局) also use other codes in addition to the ten-codes. An example is the California Highway Patrol's use of eleven-codes.[10-4:Message Received ;Affirmative;Ok;Understood]
