The script of this programme 本節目台詞

Helen: Rob, I'm so excited! Justin Bieber 隨時都有可能離開酒店。我真等不及他從酒店大門出來的那一刻。我要他的簽名 autograph, 好好珍藏起來!

Rob: I have to say that his music is not to my taste, but it is fun to be in a place where things are happening, I suppose!

Helen: …it's him! 是他!快拍照!Rob. 看我!朝我這兒看! I'm here! 我在這兒!

Rob: Who's this, Helen? This isn't Justin Bieber. This guy is much taller and his hair is very dark and… it's much longer too.

Helen: No Rob, this is not Justin Bieber. This is Forest Trunk!

Rob: Forest who? I've never heard of him! …

Helen: I bet you have, Rob! 你可能在流行雜誌上看到過他!是八人組合 Wild Boys 的成員之一。 我可喜歡他了!I love him! 他可是個名人,a celeb.

Rob: A celeb?! That's not quite right, Helen. Celeb is an informal abbreviation of the word 'celebrity', which is used in English to refer to people who are actually famous, especially in show business. Let's listen to some examples:

  • "Elizabeth Taylor was a celeb most of her life. She was taken to Los Angeles as a child and began her film career at the age of nine."
  • "I've been taking singing lessons and one day I'll record a song with Justin Bieber and become a celeb like him!"
Justin Bieber

Helen: Ah, Justin Bieber! Okay Rob, a celebrity or a celeb, 意思都是指娛樂圈裏的名人,像那個人… 就像她!

Rob: Her who?! Who is that woman… who might have forgotten to put her skirt on! She is wearing a shirt and a belt.

Helen: Rob 那不是腰帶。It's her skirt – 是她的裙子。真夠短的!你瞧,這不是另一個娛樂圈的 celeb 嗎?It's Margot Marigold!

Rob: Marigold? I've never heard of her.

Helen: 她是 Forest Trunk's girlfriend! 既然是女友,穿著就得講究一點兒。這條裙子 skirt 肯定會暢銷。She is a celeb!

Rob: Well, that's the trend nowadays. In our society everything is fast, the world is getting smaller and there is a tendency for people who are not really well-known to be called 'celebs'. So I wouldn't be surprised to find this word everywhere.

Helen: Don't be sad, Rob. 不過對我們 Learning English 來說,你可是我們的 celeb! 記得去年的聖誕晚會上你大展歌喉,連大樓裏其他公司的人都認識你了!

Rob: Don't remind me of that. They are making fun of me to this day because I was so out of tune.

Helen: 所以說,你也出名了!你是 a celeb, 儘管不是所有的人都欣賞你的歌喉,Rob.

Rob: I might ask Justin Bieber for some pointers. And, by the way, here he comes!

Helen: That's him! Justin Bieber 從酒店出來了。Justin, here! I'm here! 我在這兒呢!

Rob: Justin, teach me to sing! Justin, teach me to sing, lah lah lah…
