The script of this programme 本节目台词
Neil: Hi, I'm Neil and this is Helen!
Neil: What's wrong Helen? You're looking rather sheepish.
Helen: Sheepish? 像只羊？我的毛衣是羊毛的。
Neil: I don't mean you look like a sheep. I mean you look sheepish, which is quite different!
Helen: 当然了，looking like a sheep 和 looking sheepish 是完全不同的两件事儿！
Neil: Yes. If I say you look like a sheep, it means, well, you look like a sheep. But if I say you look sheepish, it means you look embarrassed or ashamed about something.
Helen: To look sheepish 意思是看起来难为情，局促不安，好像做了什么亏心事一样。
Helen: Ah, yes.
Neil: Listen to some examples:
- Tom walked into the room looking sheepish.
- Emily grinned sheepishly as she closed the door behind her.
James gave her a sheepish look.
Neil: So, come on, why are you looking sheepish today?
Helen: Ah, well...
Helen: Well, 你还记得你借我的那本书？
Neil: My favourite book of all time – the original edition of The Private Lives of the Greatest Cats in History?
Neil: OK Helen, now you're looking very sheepish indeed, so you'd better hurry up and tell me what happened to it.
Neil: You dropped it? Well I hope it's not damaged, otherwise I'll have to -
Neil: In the river! You dropped it in the river!
Neil: Oh no!
Helen: 非常抱歉。I'm so sorry! That's why I'm looking sheepish.
Neil: You should be looking even more sheepish than that. In fact, I expect you to look sheepish for several days. It was the best book in the world! 'Sheepish' doesn't do it justice...
