The script of this programme 本節目台詞
(Feifei and Finn playing cards)
Finn: I'm laying an eight.
Feifei: Hmm, 那我就來張丁鉤。
Finn: (Faster pace) Queen!
Feifei: Ace! 尖兒！
Finn: OK OK, you go again!
Feifei: 哈哈, 這次我出 three sevens 三個七。
Finn: Wow, going bigger, are we?
Feifei: Absolutely! Come on then, what have you got?
Finn: I've got three kings! I bet you can't beat that?
Feifei: Hahaha! Check this out Finn - three Aces! (Very happy) 怎麼樣，我贏了吧，今天晚飯你請啦。
Finn: (Frustrated) Yes, yes, I know. I didn't know you were an ace card player, Feifei!
Feifei: What do you mean 'an ace' card player? I play other cards too! 我沒有只出尖兒呀，剛才我不是先出了張五、一張丁鉤、然後一個圈兒、倆四、還有三個...(interrupted)
Finn: No, no, no. I didn't mean literally 'an ace' card player. In English, we can use the word 'ace' as an adjective to mean 'very good, excellent, and awesome'.
Feifei: 噢，原來你是在說我的牌技很好。Thank you Finn, very kind of you. 在英語裏，單詞 ace 可以當形容詞使用，意思是非常好、一流的。
Finn: Here are some examples using the word 'ace'.
- This is an ace idea!
- That is an ace laptop you've got!
- Have you listened to Arctic Monkeys' new album? It's ace!
- I'm ace at cooking!
- Andy Murray is an ace tennis player!
Finn: So we can use 'ace' to describe an idea, a thing or a person. And you can say you're ace at doing something. So Feifei, do you like 斗地主？
Feifei: Yes, it』s ace!
Finn: Shall we have a game? I'm pretty ace at playing 斗地主。
Feifei: But it's time for dinner and you are paying!
Finn: One more game, then we'll go...
Feifei: No, let's go now, I'm hungry! Can we go to the new Thai restaurant that's just opened? I heard they serve ace tom yum soup!
Finn: OK, in that case, let's go now.
