Dialogue Script 3 对话原文 3
Jack: Emily will need photos of her dad's family, too.
Sally: I know. You'll have to find those.
Jack: OK. But I don't know if I have photos of all her dad's brothers and sisters.
Sally: How many did he have?
Jack: Three brothers and two sisters.
Sally: That's a lot. Oh, look. Here's a picture of Mom's brother, Uncle Thomas.
Jack: And he's making a face. You know, you look a lot like him.
Sally: Only without a mustache! You know, it's fun to look at old pictures.
Jack: It is. You can see how people change.
Sally: Look how we've changed.
Jack: We sure have. I'm not as thin as I used to be.
Sally: Neither am I. But we still look pretty good.
Jack: Time does go by fast, doesn't it?
Sally: Yes, especially when you're old like us!
Jack: Speak for yourself!
1. 对话中Jack和Sally在感叹时间流逝以及人们的巨大变化。他们找到了一张Uncle Thomas的照片，Jack觉得Sally长的很像他，长的像可以用look like sb，也可以用take after 这个词组，比如说：She takes after her mother. 她长得像她妈妈。Sally也承认长的像Uncle Thomas，不过得把胡子去掉。翻看老照片确实挺有趣的，可以看出人们是如何变化的。
2. It's fun to do something，做某事很有意思。Jack觉得自己没有以前那么瘦了，Sally也说自己变胖了，但是看起来还不错。Jack感叹说Time does go by fast. 时间真是过得飞快啊。助动词do在句子中起到了强调的作用，同时do 也要有时态和数的变化，后面的动词要用原形，比如：I do want you to come.我确实希望你能来。He did do a better job than last time. 他这次做得确实比上次好多了。
3. Sally也觉得时间过得很快，特别是等Jack跟她一样大年纪的时候，感觉时间就过得更快了。Jack可不同意，他说 speak for yourself! 说你自己吧！speak for yourself表示“你只能代表你自己，你不能代表别人”，例如：-We all played very badly. –Speak for yourself! I think I played quite well! ---我们在场上表现得都很差劲。--你在说你自己吧，我觉得我表现得挺不错的。
