The script of this programme 本節目台詞
Jen: Hi I」m Jen and with me today is Li. Did you get my text message this morning?
Li: Hi Jen, yes I did, and I」ve brought everything you mentioned.
Jen: What, I didn」t ask you for anything?
Jen: Er… No thanks… But Li, I didn」t tell you to bring anything today.
Li: But you did! 你看這不是你發給我的短信嗎？ –你說
Li: 沒錯吧？一醒來就能聞到咖啡味兒, to show him I can wake up and smell the coffee.
Jen: I didn」t mean it literally. When we say 「wake up and smell the coffee」 in English, it means that you need to pay attention because you」re missing something that」s really obvious.
Li: 所以當你告訴我要 "wake up and smell the coffee," 這句話的時候你的意思是我要清醒點兒，對嗎？
Jen: Exactly. Let」s hear some examples:
Wake up and smell the coffee – she doesn」t want to go out with you!
My girlfriend wants me to buy her some diamond earrings, but I」ve got no money! She really needs to wake up and smell the coffee!
Li: 看來這位女朋友需要知道他的男友買不起她想要的耳環，對嗎？ "wake up and smell the coffee".
Jen: Now you」ve got it!
Li: Ok, so in your text message you said that I need to wake up and smell the coffee because the boss wants to see me?
Jen: Think about it… he said he loves your work, he is always talking about how talented you are, how he wants to reward his staff… wake up and smell the coffee, Li!
Jen: I mean I think he」s going to give you a pay rise.
Li: Really! Wow, that would be fantastic! I never would have thought I」d get a pay rise, he must think I」m really good!
Jen: Well, don」t forget me if you suddenly become really rich.
Li: Of course I won」t forget you.
Jen: You can buy me something nice.
Li: I」ll tell you what – I」ll buy you a coffee!
