【美剧】The Big Bang Theory (生活大爆炸) 学习笔记
[pic]

花了两个星期时间补习TBBT,今天总算是看完了第三季,第四季就只能one episode a week的追了。在看的过程中,很努力地想一边做笔记,可惜经常看着看着就笑颠了给忘记了。不过断断续续的,还是记了一些个人觉得都是比较常见实用的口语,那些什么复杂的词,一个都没记,反正也没怎么用(我态度很不端正)。很抱歉没时间没耐心也没有那个能力对每一个知识点进行专业地分析拓展哈,都是一些个人的理解,而且当时做笔记的时候只记了英文,结果有些中文意思都忘了,bummer,我尽量回忆吧。这些东西其实都非常基础,但能把他们都记住并用于实际应用就已经很不错了。笔记不太全,基本按着个人喜好记的,哪顺眼就记哪个。也许有一天兴致来了还会把TBBT从头再看一遍,那时再补充吧。(这份笔记整理的都是一些日常用语,没有像其他笔记那么多的专业东西哦)

boarding school 寄宿学校

I think I made my point. 我觉得我说得很清楚了.

(还有一种说法是 My point exactly, 可以翻译成“我就说嘛/我说得对吧”)

You heard me.

(这个短语不知道要怎么解释,“你听到我说什么了”,这样翻译好像很奇怪。给个场景:两个人吵架,你骂了对方一句“you moron”,对反很愤怒的回了一句“what did you just say?(你再给我说一遍!)”,于是,你就可以用“You heard me(你知道我在说什么,老娘懒得再讲一遍)”回骂了)

Can I ask you a favor? 能请你帮个忙吗?

(还有好多种说法:Can you do me a favor / give me a hand? ect. 挑一句顺眼的记就够了)

I learnt my lesson.我得到教训了.

out of my league 我高攀不上

(有部电影就叫"She's out of my league",当时看了一点点就没心情看下去了,不评论)

Don't take it personally. 别往心里去, 这不是针对你

spare key 备用钥匙

(老外经常会把自己家的钥匙备份一份给邻居,或者是在家门口的某个位置藏一把sapre key,门框上或花盆下等。所以我觉得国外的home security 很不安全,这会不会就是有那么多罪案片的原因?CSI 系列,CM,Bones ,Closer ,好多好多,每一集都要翘上几个人.)

chaos 混乱

(读音挺有意思的一个次,和mess是近义词)

break in one's house 闯入某人家里

chatty 爱闲聊的;爱说话的

Here is the thing. 事情是这样的

(一般用于一个conversation的开头,特别是要对某人解释某件事情的时候,貌似都是不怎么好的事)

pepper spray 胡椒水喷剂(防狼工具之一,taser也是一种,但是女性一般用的是pepper spray)

Mahalo 谢谢(不知道是哪里的语言)

(如果你要讲一些会让对方unpleasant的话,就用这个短语开头把)

in my defence 为自己辩解

(很常见的说法,吵架或起冲突时为自己辩解的时候会用到)

never mind 没关系,不用担心, 算我没说(有褒义也有贬义)

buick 别克

tampon 月经棉塞

(个人理解,tampon是那种那种内置式的,chinese比较常用的那种叫做pad,然后我就联想到Ipad。。。囧。。。)

one-month supply 一个月的储量

what's with ...? 什么什么怎么了?

a dead end 死胡同,没有结果

scrambled eggs 炒蛋 (煎蛋或荷包蛋是 fried eggs)

dork 书呆子 (nerd,geek 意思也差不多)

heads-up 小心!警示。

give you a hint 给你点提示

warrior 勇士,战士

dwarf 矮子

I got your back. 我支持你。

There,there. (这个要怎么解释?只可意会啊。就跟“好了好了,没事了”意思差不多吧,在安慰别人的时候用)

blow off one's head 炸掉某人的头

(突然想起有一个短语叫blow my mind,是让我受益匪浅、让我很惊喜的意思)

be skilled at 对什么什么很在行

tech support 技术支持(人员)

(比如电脑或者软件之类的出现故障,打电话去寻求帮助的对象就叫tech support,CM有一集就是一个患有多重人格的tech support通过远程控制监视客户的生活,murder了好多人)

see through one's lie 识破某人的谎言

shotgun 1. (双管)猎枪, 霰弹枪, 鸟枪2. (因女方怀孕而)不得不举行的婚礼 -----爱词霸
(其实听到这个词我想到的是《老爸老妈浪漫史》里有一集Ted买了一辆新车,Barney抢先说了“I call shotgun for eternity!”结果其他人都大叫惋惜,嫌弃Barney不厚道。在这里,"I call shotgun "是偶要坐副驾位!的意思)

rehab 戒毒/戒酒中心或机构的意思

(第一次知道这个词是看GG的时候,Queen B 以为S 消失是因为进了rehab,还有,House大叔在第五季的结尾就是因为摄入过多的vicodin导致产生delusion而去了rehab)

catchy 容易记住的,朗朗上口的

Big Bang and Theory

...Question 1: The Big Bang Theory, a television show, follows many management concepts. In the episode, “The Bus Pants Utilization”(See Appendix), Leonard comes up with an idea to create a smartphone application will help solve differential equations. This episode conveys the disadvantages of team decision making and correlates directly with Ben Schneider’s ASA theory. As Leonard came up with the idea, Sheldon cannot let go of the fact he’s not in control of the situation nor the leader of the gang. Ultimately, most time is spent on the power struggle between Sheldon and Leonard, and Sheldon naming the device after his initials, rather than working with the group and developing a business strategy. Another disadvantage of team decision making in the episode is displayed through Raj and Howard’s indecisiveness and compromise with the decisions of both leaders. In the end, Leonard emerges as the natural leader, as he displays that he can hold the group together and his ability to work with team. As in Ben Schneider’s ASA model, the team attracted a leader that seemed to embody the team’s objectives, then selected the leader that embodied the team’s objectives, then Leonard fired Sheldon as did not embody the team’s objectives. This episode is a direct correlation of art reflecting the finance business. Usually there is not group decision making as it’s too costly and the power struggle for leadership takes too much time. The key in finance is to make money. If you can emerge...

The Big Bang Theory

...Inflation is one of the leading theories explaining the structure of the cosmos, first proposed in 1979 by Alan Guth as a major refinement of the Big Bang theory. In this post, I will explore the basics of inflation as well as how it resolves some problems with the Big Bang theory. The basics Cosmological inflation proposes that between 10−36 and 10−33/32 seconds after the Big Bang singularity, there was an inflationary epoch wherein the universe underwent an immense, exponential expansion of gargantuan scale. In a trillionth of a trillionth of a second, the universe expanded more rapidly than the speed of light itself- this does not violate Einstein’s dictum that light-speed is the universal speed limit, however, because it is empty space...

Big Bang Theory

...------------------------------------------------- Freshwater ecosystem From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Freshwater angelfish Freshwater ecosystems are a subset of Earth's aquatic ecosystems. They include lakes and ponds, rivers, streams, springs, and wetlands. They can be contrasted with marine ecosystems, which have a larger salt content. Freshwater habitats can be classified by different factors, including temperature, light penetration, and vegetation. Freshwater ecosystems can be divided into lentic ecosystems (still water) andlotic ecosystems (flowing water). Limnology (and its branch freshwater biology) is a study about freshwater ecosystems. It is a part of hydrobiology. Original efforts to understand and monitor freshwater ecosystems were spurred on by threats to human health (ex. Cholera outbreaks due to sewage contamination). Early monitoring focussed on chemical indicators, then bacteria, and finally algae, fungi and protozoa. A new type of monitoring involves differing groups of organisms (macroinvertebrates, macrophytes and fish) and the stream conditions associated with them. Current biomonitering techniques focus mainly on community structure or biochemical oxygen demand. Responses are measured by behavioural changes, altered rates of growth, reproduction or mortality. Macroinvertebrates are most often used in these models because of well known taxonomy, ease of collection, sensitivity to a range of stressors, and their overall value to the......

Big Bang Theory Weakness

...weakness of the big bang Theory Submitted By Nyasha Deredza Id Number: 2012050156 Instructor: Ps. C. Thebe Date: 29 June 2015 Introduction Philosophers and General people have come up with many theories, in an attempt to explain the origins of the earth. They have tried to come up with models which try to explain how the earth came into being, and its future. One of the popularly known theory is the Big Bang theory, which presupposes that for the universe to originate ,all matter that we know was contained in a tiny speck which went on to explode. The theory continues to develop and evolve from the time it was conceptualized. Scientists have taken part in contribution to this. For a long time now people have upheld various ideas of what the universe is like, from the Aristotelian to the Copernican universe among other ideas. Soon after the inventions of physics by Isaac Newton, philosophers began to think that there was a time when planets and perhaps stars did not exist but only a cloud of matter. Shortly after that it is believed that gravity pulled the matter into clumps, forming stars and planets. This sounds absurd of course, at least in my opinion because it is not possible that the universe and its complexity were as a result of a coincidental mistake .The big bang theory has some advantages and disadvantages as well, however he aim of this research paper is to examine the weaknesses of the Big bang theory and its flaws. The theory does not......

Gender Theory in the Big Bang Theory

...Gender Theory role in The Big Bang Theory In today’s society, technology plays a major role in ones day to day life, especially television. Each television show has its own theme, plot, and setting, which appeals to a particular audience. A popular comedy sitcom, airing on CBS, is The Big Bang Theory. The Big Bang Theory centers around two physicists, Leonard and Sheldon, that are roommates, and their neighbor, Penny. Leonard and Sheldon are extremely socially awkward, and so are their friends, Howard Wolowitz and Raj Koothrappali. The television show displays the interaction between these four geeky friends with Penny and other women. Throughout the show, the audience recognizes that many of society’s stereotypes on gender are portrayed through these characters. To thoroughly analyze gender stereotypes and its role in The Big Bang Theory, one must first understand what gender theory is, and its role it plays in society. Gender theory began as the Feminist movement, which was started around the late eighteenth century. The Feminist theory was a proponent of gender equality. Mary Wollstonecraft played a prominent role in this movement (Allen and Felluga). The Feminist movement originally started with women wanting rights with education; but women realized just how unfairly they were being treated. Now they wanted the right to own property, which would come with the right to vote. The movement then went from public to private; women wanted equal rights in home and work......

An Analysis of the Ideology and Messages About Culture in Prime Time Television

...Ideology and Messages About Culture in Prime Time Television Seven days a week, 24 hours a day there is something to watch on television. There are reality shows, newscasts, news programs, dramas, sitcoms, the list is endless. The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, Law & Order: SVU, and Blue Bloods are all part of the prime time lineup of shows throughout any given week. The Big Bang Theory, airs on CBS and was created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. It is the story of two brilliant physicists that work at CalTech in Pasadena, CA. Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper are co-workers, best friends and roommates. Sheldon is “regimented, deeply eccentric, and non-conventional” in his thinking which is a consistent hardship on the relationship between these two friends (“Plot Summary”). They are friends with colleagues Howard Wolowitz, a mechanical engineer, and Rajesh Koothrappali, an Indian immigrant who works as an astrophysicist. The foursome are “self-professed nerds, [with] little or no luck with popular women” (“Plot Summary”). A neighbor, Penny, is of average mind but compared to this brilliant squad she’s made to seem of less than average intelligence. Leonard’s goal is to get Penny to be his girlfriend. Immediately following Big Bang is The Millers created by Greg Garcia and starring Will Arnett.

Interpersonal Conflict in Levision

...Interpersonal Conflict In Television George Morgan COM200: Interpersonal Communication Instructor, Elizabeth E. Nelson January 1, 2016 Relationship conflicts happen in television, just as they happen in everyday life. As in life, one can see interpersonal conflict in television that could have been resolved in a better way. I noticed interpersonal conflict in a television episode of "The Big Bang Theory" titled "The Empathy Optimization". Kaplan, E., Holland, S., Molaro, S., Lorre, C., & Cohen, R. (Executive producers).

The resolution to the conflict could have been resolved better by using efficient methods of communicating between the actors. Verbal and non-verbal communications were not used to the scripts best advantage. The ability to listen, along with the use of problem solving skills, were not used effectively. We must remember this is a comedy series, involving several characters with different perceptions of what reality is. The conflicts in this particular episode revolves around empathy, and the actions and reactions, involving one of the characters temporary sickness. The sick persons’ empathic friends took into consideration their sick friends perspective, as well as his thoughts and feelings.

Worldview Assignment

...APOL 104 Everette Beverly Worldview Assignment Part I. What is Worldview? Worldview as defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary is “the way someone thinks about the world.” I define it very logically. It is broken up into rich and poor. Beautiful and ugly. Moral or Amoral. Ambition or contentment. Very simplistic. Part II. The question of origin. Where did I come from? There is no doubt in my military mind who is the creator of all things. He is the creator of the Heavens and Earth. (Genesis 1:1). Why do we doubt these things? The Big Bang theory can be easily explained. He who creates something as wonderful as the world we live does it with a bang, literally and figuratively. One as powerful as God also has the wherewithal to create man and woman. (Genesis 2:7). There has always been dispute, but no real worthy explanation. Again, I am a very logical & practical person so I choose to believe in the divine creation. The question of identity. What am I? Who am I? I have contemplated these questions over a 50yr. life. I was taught that I was created in his own image that I am supposed to care for and be fed by his creation. (Genesis 2:5-7) Should this not be the views of every Christian, not just mine? To be honest, I stray. But I ask for forgiveness and keep on going. The question of meaning/purpose. What am doing here on earth? I was also taught to follow God’s will and he will give me purpose. (Romans 8:28) “To live a worldview, a person must......

Psychological Disorders

...Psychological Disorders Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs when someone has gone through or experienced a traumatic event in their life. The person suffering from PTSD experiences reoccurring episodes of the traumatic event they experienced. There are many different types of traumatic events that could trigger this disease. Some examples that may lead to PTSD are witnessing a crime, domestic abuse, and war. The most experience I have had with PTSD is learning about soldiers who have been affected by fighting in war. I’ve read several fiction novels that display a soldier dealing with PTSD. In Tim O’Brien’s fiction novel The Things They Carried, many soldiers are affected by fighting in the Vietnam War. The book takes the reader through the soldiers’ experiences while fighting, and then fast-forwards to years down the road when the veterans are much older. The reason for this is to show how the veterans are still affected by the war many years later. One particular soldier, Norman Bowker, spent his late years reflecting on his time in the war. He blamed himself for what happened to his fellow soldiers. He first handily watched one of his good friends die in combat. Bowker had the chance to save his friend, but he was unable to do so. Norman had reoccurring episodes where he found himself in the middle of combat, not knowing what to do. After these episodes occurred, he felt no purpose of living anymore. The aftermath of the war is what got to Bowker...

Smoking

...Smoking Advertisements and Commercials For this assignment, I will be writing about anti-smoking advertisements and commercials that I see a lot on television while I am trying to watch the Big Bang Theory and sometimes banners on an Internet page. Lately, I have been noticing a lot of anti-smoking commercials from the CDC interviewing people whom have been smoking for a long time. People, whom are being interviewed, have serious health problems due to the effects of smoking. These ads will explain how the ex-smokers live their life’s differently because of the damage from smoking. Terrie Hall was the most well known person in these CDC commercials. Terrie started smoking when she was in high school, and now she is facing the consequences for doing it for so long. Terrie was working with the CDC to show not only to teens but also to adults what smoking did to her. Terrie’s condition with cancer was getting worst and she requested the CDC to interview her while on her deathbed to show that smoking took her life away. Terrie Hall died in September of last year. It has been said that the last commercial of Terrie made a big impact to society because the emotion appeal it delivered to the audience. The emotional appeal was evoking negative emotions like fear, guilt, sadness, and anger towards smoking. The audience might develop the fear of smoking, knowing what kind of damage it can do to someone’s body. Audiences might build up the emotion guilt for the current smokers.......
