4.12 The One With The Embryos

The guys’ chicken is becoming a rooster.

Phoebe undergoes the procedure to implant embryos in her uterus;

the pressure is high as Frank Jr. and Alice can only afford the procedure once.

Monica and Rachel bet that they know Chandler and Joey better than Chandler and Joey know them;

Ross writes the questions (game show style) and eventually the stakes are raised: If the girls win, the chick and the duck have to go.

If the guys win, they get the girls’ apartment.

[Scene: Monica and Rachel’s, it’s 0-Dark:30, in other words it’s really, really early. Everyone’s asleep, and all through the apartments not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. That is except for the chick, who turns out to be a rooster and is crowing in the sun. Needless to say, this awakens Monica and Rachel who rush into their living room, searching for the cause of the sound.]

Dr. Zane: No, I’m sorry.

Phoebe: Wow! You guys really don’t know anything!

Frank: I know! Why don’t you get drunk! That worked for a lot of girls in my high school.

[Scene: Monica and Rachel’s, the game is about to begin.]

Monica: So how’s the test coming?

Ross: Hey, you’re touching the game board.

Monica: Sorry. You freak. You guys! Do you realize that any minute now, Phoebe can be pregnant?

Joey: Huh.

Rachel: I know! I know, it’s such a huge, life-altering thing.

life-altering adj.改变生活的

Joey: I know.

(They all pause and think about it.)

Ross: The test is ready.

All: Yeah! Yes! (They all right into the living room, all excited.)

Ross: Okay, each team will answer ten questions. The first team that answers the most questions wins. Okay, the categories are, Fears and Pet Peeves, Ancient History, Literature, and It’s All Relative. Now, the coin toss to see who goes first. (He flips the coin and they all watch it hit the table and stop. Then they all look up at him, to see who goes first.) Okay, somebody call it this time.

category n.种类 部属 类目/peeve n.气恼  使人气恼的事/ancient history <>刚刚发生但不成为新闻的事 家喻户晓的故事/toss v./Do you have any pet peeve? 你有什麽样的怪毛病吗? 所谓的 pet peeve 就是个人生活习惯上的一些小毛病, 例如有些人不喜欢别人碰他的电脑, 要是你碰他的电脑他就会不高兴, 这就是所谓的 pet peeve (而非 bad habit.) 通常 pet peeve 都是比较无伤大雅的小毛病, 几乎每个人都有属於他自己的 pet peeve。 所以就有老美跟我说过, “Everybody has his pet peeve.” 当然 pet peeve 也常常成为老美谈话之间彼此开玩笑的话题。 记得 “Friends” 有一集就是两边人马在比快问快答, 而其中有一类的问题就是 pet peeves,蛮有意思的。 如果是这个坏习惯大到会影响别人,像是在公共场所老是讲话很大声, 这就不是 pet peeve, 而要用 annoying 来形容。 例如我就常听老美抱怨, “Don’t you think he is annoying?” (你不觉得他很烦吗?) /学过一点英语的人都知道Pet这个词是宠物的意思。可是如果你想当然认为Teachers pet是“老师的宠物”的意思的话就错了,Teachers pet 是指老师最喜欢的学生。由此引申出了下列的说法:比如,Bosss pet 老板的红人;My pet brother 我最喜欢的兄弟;Johns pet project 约翰最看重的项目。Peeve 这个词的意思是不快、反感或不满。比如,The situation put him into a peeve. 见此状况,他恼羞成怒。可是,如果一个美国人问你,“What is your pet peeve?” 这又是什么意思呢?原来,在peeve前面加了pet,意思就不同了。比如,It rains a lot where Tom works. Bad weather, it seems, is Toms pet peeve. 汤姆工作的地方常下雨。因此,坏天气就似乎成了他喜欢抱怨的话题。再比如,My pet peeve is ants which are all over my place. 我最讨厌的是蚂蚁,我们家到处都是。所以,Pet Peeve 的意思是“最讨厌(嫌)的东西”。这样说,一方面可以说是习惯,一方面也能看出美国人的诙谐。

All: Oh yeah!

(Ross flips the coin again.)

Rachel: Tails!

tails n.(常用复数)(硬币)反面辫子[反义词:heads]

Ross: It’s heads. (The guys celebrate.) Gentlemen, pick your category.
