影片对白


Effie: I'm sorry I'm late.
C.C. : Effie.
Effie: C.C., sorry I missed rehearsals. But I went to the doctor, and I am feeling much better now.
C.C. : Look, don't try to make it tonight.
Effie: What are you talking about, baby? It's New Year's Eve.
C.C. : Yeah. Curtis just stepped out to make a call. Why don't you go up to your room and later he'll come up and talk to you?
Effie: I said, I'm fine. Excuse me. I have to get dressed now.
Woman: Oh, God, I'm so nervous. I got all the steps down, but those harmonies...
Effie: C.C., what's going on? Lorrell, what's going on?
C.C. : Effie, Curtis was supposed to...
Effie: Love me. Curtis was supposed to love me.
Curtis: There you are, Effie. I've been looking all over.
Effie: I turn my back and find myself out on the line
You could have warned me
But that would have been too kind
Curtis: I've been warning you for months toclean up your act.
You've been late, you've been mean,
Giving all kinds of bullshit flack.
Effie: That's a lie, that's a lie
It's just I haven't been feeling that well
Curtis: Effie, please!
Stop excusing yourself.
You've been late, you've been mean,
And getting fatter all the time.
Effie: Now, you're lyin', lyin'
I've never been so thin!
You're lyin', you're lyin'
'Cause you're knocking off that piece
Who thinks she's better than everybody
She ain't better than anybody!
She ain't nothing but common!
Deena: Now, who you calling common
You self-indulgent, self-absorbed, non-professional?
Effie: You! I'm calling you
I'm calling you the common piece he's knocking off
Deena: Now, you listen to me
Miss Blame It On The World
See, I've put up with you for much too long
I have put up with your bitching
I've put up with your nagging
And all your screaming, too
Lorrell: Now, when are you two gonna stop all this fighting?
Effie: Stay out of this, Lorrell.
This is between Deena and me.
Lorrell: Yeah? Well, it's between me, too!
I'm as much a part of this group as anybody else
And I'm tired, Effie, I'm tired
Of all the problems you're making us
Effie: I always knew you two were together
Lorrell: What?
Effie: I always knew you two wereganging up on me!
Deena: She had nothing to do with this change
It was you, it was you
Always thinking of you!
Always thinking of you!
Curtis: I knew you were trouble from the start
Effie: Trouble?
Curtis: You were real bad trouble from the start
Effie: Curtis, I'm your woman.
Curtis: But you're getting out now
I'm not building this group
To have you tear it apart
Go ahead and rant and scream and shout!
Don't worry, baby, I'll buy you out
Effie: There's no money dirty enough to buy me out. You remember that, Curtis.
C. C. :Lay off, Effie
Just take the money and run
Effie: You're in this with him, C. C.?
C. C. : Cool it, Effie
This time you know what you done
Effie: So they bought your black ass, too, huh?
C. C. : I said, cool it, Effie
This time you've gone too far
Effie: Oh, I can go further! I can go further!
Woman: I don't want to stay around this
I'm just breakin' into this business
This is between all of you
This is none of my affair
Effie: Yeah?
Well, it's between you, too
Now, little sister
This snow job is as much your sin
Look at me! Look at me!
How much did you put out to get in?
Woman: Now, you watch your mouth
Watch your mouth, Miss Effie White
'Cause I don't take that talk
From no second-rate diva
Who can't sustain
Effie: I'm not feeling well, I've got pain
All: Effie, we all got pain!

妙语佳句,活学活用
1. Clean up one's act
意思是"to stop doing things that other people do not approve of and start to behave in a more acceptable way",例如:There's a very strong anti-press feeling at the moment. A lot of people think it's time they cleaned up their act.
此外,clean up 还可泛指一切"bring to a certain standard of order or morality"的行为,例如:This script won't do; we'll have to clean up the language.
2. Gang up on someone
Gang up 的意思是"联合起来一致行动,通常是对抗/攻击另一方",例如:The older children were always ganging up on the little ones.

3. Lay off
这里的意思是"Stop doing something, quit",例如:Lay off that noise for a minute, so the baby can get to sleep. C.C. 这里的意思是要Effie 不要再纠缠不清了。
Lay off 在俚语中还可以用来警告别人"不要再烦我":Lay off or I'll tell the teacher.

考考你
用今日所学将下面的句子译成英语
1. 他得修正自己的行为,遵守规定。
He'll have to clean up his act and obey the rules.
2. 各个机构联合起来对抗非法药品的使用。
Various agencies gang up to combat the use of illicit drugs.
3. 她下定了决心戒烟。
She resolved to lay off smoking.
Dreamgirls《追梦女郎》(精讲之四)考考你 参考答案
1. I know what you cats are trying to do, and you can forget it. James Early ain't no street-corner punk looking for his first date. He's an established artist with a recording contract.我知道你们这些人想干嘛,你们还是算了吧。詹姆斯·厄里可不是业余歌手,他是个有名望的签约艺术家。
2. All I'm asking is one record, man. One song with a simple hook. "Look at me in my pretty car, makes me feel like a movie star." You know where all the hits happen these days? In cars, man. Songs that make you feel good while you're driving your automobile. 我要求的只是一张唱片,一首简单的、能让人们记住的歌。"驾着美丽的车,感觉自己像个电影明星"。你知道这年头排行榜首的都是些什么歌吗?都是关于汽车的,朋友,都是那些让你在开车时感觉良好的歌。
