    1. sucker 爱上当的人 
    Rachel哄骗着菲比给她跑腿儿,然后低声说说菲比是sucker. 
    Sucker 在美语里首先是容易上当的人,另外还可以指对某种东西特别迷恋的人,
    比如我的一个加拿大小提琴家朋友经常说I am a nice hotel sucker. 因为他特别看重酒店星级。


    Rachel: Pheebs? Could you get that? Please?
    Phoebe: Why? Just 'cause you're too lazy to get up off your touchie?
    Rachel: No! No! It's just that all the people in the entire world that I want to talk to are right here.

    Rachel: (under her breath) Sucker!

    Chandler: What-what Richard thing?
    Phoebe: Oh no. 
    Chandler: What Richard thing?
    Phoebe: Simmons! Go with Simmons!
    Monica: Okay, I umm, I ran into Richard yesterday and he asked me if I wanted to go for a bite and I did. The only reason I didn't tell you is because I knew you'd get mad and I didn't want to spoil our anniversary.
    Chandler: I'm not mad.
    Monica: Really?!
    Chandler: Oh yeah! Yeah, so you-you bumped into Richard! You grabbed a bite! It's no big deal. 
    Monica: Great!
    3. dice out 买定离手

    Ross给Rachel的脸上画了胡子,菲比认为他们参加了化妆舞会,Rachel扮演Pancho Villa. 墨西哥革命英雄,1923年遭暗杀。他的特点就是两撇小胡子。
    菲比说Ross像Bob Saget, 曾经是《美国家庭滑稽录像》的主持人,在美国家喻户晓。现在是美剧《老爸老妈浪漫史》中2030年Ted的配音。

    Friends S05E22: 激怒关闭回原点 重大突破见世面

    Friends S05E22: 激怒关闭回原点 重大突破见世面

    1. push one's buttons 故意的激怒某人 
    Phoebe对Ross生气了,但其实她自己也不知道是为什。她说Ross的时候用了这样一句话That guy can push my buttons.
    Push(press) one’s buttons 故意的激怒惹恼某人。 
    Don’t push my buttons. 你可别惹我
    「buttons」是表示「惹某人生氣的按鈕」,也就是你明明知道做什麼、說什麼會讓某人生氣,又偏偏去做、去說;而且,這些事情可能別人覺得沒什麼,但對這個人而言就是挑釁的行為。因為這個慣用語有「A 了解 B 的情緒弱點」的意義,所以也經常用「A really knows how to push B's buttons.」的方式來表達。

    Phoebe: (after he's gone) I am so sorry you got caught in the middle of that. I didn't mean to be so out there. I am furious with him!
    Chandler: Wow umm, calm down.
    Phoebe: I'm trying, but man that guy can push my buttons!
    Monica: Why are so mad at him?
    Phoebe: Look, I don't wanna talk about it. Okay?
    Monica: Well, it just seems that…
    Phoebe: You wanna be on my list too? Keep talking! Has anyone seem my list by the way?
    Chandler: Uh, no Pheebs. What's it look like?
    Phoebe: Uh, it's a piece of paper and it says, "Ross" on it.
    2. I've been around 我是见过世面的 
    Joey要去拉斯维加斯问Phoebe最佳路线,Phoebe说自己I've been around. 
    I’ve been around 从字面上看就是我哪儿都去过,也可以引申为我见过世面。

    Phoebe: Oh hey Joey! What's up?
    Joey: I can't decide which route to take to Vegas. Hey, you've traveled a lot right?
    Phoebe: Yeah, I've been around.
    3. tic tac toe 三连棋游戏 
    Phoebe给Joey规划去维加斯的路线,南北两条路都不行,Phoebe给出了奇怪的原因。说路上有一只会玩tic-tac-toe的小鸡。
    Tic tac toe 三连棋游戏,两人轮流在一有九格方盘上划加字或圆圈, 谁先把三个同一记号排成横线、直线、斜线, 即是胜者。

    4. back to square one 回到原点 
    同一个对话,按照Phoebe说的,Joey还是不知道该走哪条路,所以说back to square one. 
    Square one 原点,起点。
    back to square one 回到原点,重新开始。

    Joey: Okay, so-so which route should I take the northern route or the southern route?
    Phoebe: Ooh, if you take the northern route there's a man in Illinois with a beard of bees. 
    Joey: Great! Problem solved!
    Phoebe: But on the southern route there's a chicken that plays tic-tac-toe.
    Joey: Well, back to square one.
    5. heinie 屁股 
    在这集里Phoebe和Ross算是杠上了,Phoebe骂Ross fat ass, 事后道歉时说了这样一句话。
    You have a tiny sweet heinie. 
    Heinie在俚语里相当于ass, bottom, 屁股。另外还有德国佬的意思。

    Phoebe: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't see you there.
    Ross: Phoebe, are you, are you mad at me, or something? 'Cause if are please, tell me what it is I did!
    Phoebe: Well, if you don't know I can't help you.
    Ross: Well, I don't know.
    Phoebe: Well, I can't help you.
    Ross: Well, whatever it is I'm-I'm very, very sorry. Okay?
    Phoebe: Apology accepted.
    Ross: Okay. So we're, we're good?
    Phoebe: Uh-huh.
    Ross: All right. (Gets up.) I'll uh, I'll see you later, okay?
    Phoebe: (quietly) Bye, fat ass.
    Ross: ALL RIGHT!! Phoebe now come on! Will you please tell me what it is I did that mad you so mad at me!
    Phoebe: I don't know! I don't remember!
    Ross: Well if you can't remember, can't we just forget about this?
    Phoebe: Oh no, I am mad at you. I know that much. But, I am sorry about the fat ass thing. You actually have a very sweet little heinie.
    6. shut down 关闭了 
    Joey的电影被Shut down 
    shut down 停止了,关闭了。在口语了Shut down 也有拒绝的意思。
    The computer is shutting down. 电脑在关机。

    Joey: Hey-hey! Stanley! Hey-hey! You're leading man is here! Let's get to work.
    Stanley: Umm, slight change of pla

    Rachel拿来一只猫叫做Sphinx Cat 斯芬克斯猫,俗称加拿大无毛猫,专门为对猫毛过敏的爱猫人士特地养殖的,比较罕见,被称为世界上最丑的动物之一,所以Ross和Joey不认为这是只猫。

    1. flirt with someone 跟某人调情

    Rachel: I am so proud of Joey, I can't believe he's going to be on Law & Order!
    Phoebe: I know. But don't you think that it should be called Order and Law?
    Rachel: No because first they arrest the guy and then they try him.
    Phoebe: Don't get me started on that
    3. Tri State Area 纽约都会区 
    Chandler说Monica和所有Tri State Area的人都flirt. Tri state area 指纽约市和纽约州,新泽西,康涅狄克州交界处,这三个州靠近纽约,所以说到Tri state area指的就是纽约地区, 也叫纽约都会区。

    Chandler: So uh Monica, do you, do you like the Law & Order?
    Monica: Yeah, it's good.
    Chandler: See, I'm finding out all this stuff about you today, like you like the Law & Order and that you flirted with every guy in the Tri-State area!
    Monica: Chandler! Okay, let me get this straight, it's okay for you to flirt, but not for me.
    Chandler: Oh, I'm so glad we cleared that up. Look, I'm sorry, some things are different for men and for women.
    Monica: Go on, teach me something about men and women.
    Chandler: Okay, I've already taught you so much already, but whatever. See when you flirt with a guy you think, "I'm just flirting, no big deal." But the guy is thinking, "Finally! Somebody who wants to sleep with me!"
    Monica: No way!
    Chandler: It's true.
    Monica: Well that's pathetic!
    Chandler: Again true.
    Monica: And this goes for all guys?
    Chandler: All guys that are awake. Then we go to sleep and then all the guys from the other end of the world wake up and behave the exact same way.
    4. gas 天然气,汽油 
    Pizza delivery girl说我们的披萨是gas做的,在这里gas 指天然气,瓦斯。
    美国口语里gas是汽油。
    在俚语gas当中还有空谈,吹牛的意思。

    Ross: (He opens the door while faking a laugh.) Hey! Oh, we-we can't keep eating like this. 
    Caitlin: It's uh, $12.50.
    Ross: Okay, (gets the money) so, do you make the pizzas in one of those uh, wood-burning ovens?
    Caitlin: No actually umm, I think that they're umm, gas.

    Bum
    当名词是流浪汉,懒汉,吊儿郎当的人。当动词口语里是
    乞讨,白吃,白拿
    的意思。所以Rachel 跟旁边的人要烟时说Can I bum one of those.? 能白给我一根么

    Rachel: Excuse me, can I, can I bum one of those? (He holds up his pack.) Y'know what, actually… Okay, okay, okay, what's so funny over here?
    Nancy: I thought you didn't smoke.
    Rachel: Oh, I thought you guys meant marijuana cigarettes, y'know? Y'know what I mean, like dubbies? And I actually, I thought to myself, "Wow, those guys are crazy!" But no, I actually smoke the regular ones all, all the time.
