Presenter
여러분 안녕하세요 English Expressions 에 오신것을 환영합니다. 저희 프로그램은 여러분들에게 새로운 영어표현들을 소개해드리고 쉽게 배울 수 있도록 도와드리겠습니다. 저는 ____입니다.

오늘 이 시간에는 ‘to put all your eggs in one basket’ ‘계란을 모두 한 바구니에 담다’라는 표현을 배우겠습니다. 무슨 뜻일까요? 자 그럼 더 들어보면서 한번 알아보겠습니다.

Feifei와 Rob이 투자 계획에 대해 대화하는 것을 들어봅시다.

Feifei
Rob, what are you doing?

Rob
(counting out money) Oh hi FeiFei, I'm just counting up all my money… actually, Feifei, could I borrow £100, please?

Feifei
£100? That's a lot of money. What do you need it for?

Rob
Well, with all my savings plus your £100, I'll just have enough.

Feifei
For what?!

Rob
To invest in this new company my friend is setting up. He's invented this machine where you can talk to people anywhere in the world and there are no wires or cables. It's going to be a huge success.

Feifei
Rob, that sounds to me like a mobile phone – that's already been invented.

Rob
Yeah but you can also type messages on it and send them to other people. Absolutely amazing! If this is successful my investment is going to make me millions of pounds!

Presenter
Rob은 친구 회사에 투자 ‘invest’를 하며 매우 흥분합니다. 성공하면 그 투자액 ‘investment’가 그에게 많은 돈을 가져다 줄 것이라 생각하기 때문이죠. Fefei는 이 생각에 동의 할까요? Feifei가 Rob에게 어떠한 조언을 줄지 들어보겠습니다.

Feifei
Err, Rob calm down. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Rob
What? I'm not investing in eggs – this is real money. And what do you mean about one basket? I wasn't going to put the money in a basket!

Feifei
It's a saying! Don't put all your eggs in one basket – it's an expression that means you should never rely on just one plan because it could go wrong. Rob, don't use all of your savings on this one idea – it might fail.

Rob
Fail? Do you really think so? Are you really saying putting all my eggs – or my money - in one basket is too risky?

Feifei
Exactly.

Presenter
Feifei는 Rob에게 ‘put all his eggs in one basket’을 하지 말라고 조언합니다.

‘Eggs’는 계란을 뜻하고 ‘basket’은 바구니를 의미합니다. 그러므로 ‘don’t put all your eggs in one basket’이라고 하는 것은, 일이 잘못 흘러갈 수도 있으므로 한 가지 계획에만 의존하면 안된다는 뜻입니다. 모든 계란을 담은 바구니를 떨어뜨리면 전부 깨져 버리기 때문이죠.

그럼 예문을 들어보겠습니다.

Examples

My dad says I should buy shares in a lot of different companies, and not put all my eggs in one basket. He said my money would be safer that way.

You shouldn’t just apply for one job. What happens if you don’t get it? Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Feifei
So, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Have you got the message Rob?

Rob
Yes so I mustn't depend on one idea to make me rich. I'm not so sure about my friend's new idea anyway, but does that mean you won't lend me £100?

Feifei
No.

Rob
What about for my other cracking good idea - one that you really will need a basket for?

Feifei
What is it?

Rob
I’ve bought a chicken. It means I won't have to buy eggs at the supermarket anymore. It will save me lots of money. Oh look, she's just laid her first egg… here, Feifei, catch. Can you put that in the basket for me?

Feifei
Watch out, that nearly hit me.

Presenter
그래서 결국 Rob은 계란을 한 바구니에 담지 않기로 결정했군요. 여러분은 “계란을 한 바구니에 담은”적이 있나요? 바구니에 무슨 일이 생긴 건 아니겠죠? ? 그럼 다음 이시간에 ‘English Expressions’ 에서 다시 만나겠습니다. See you next time!
