轻松日记商务职场篇 第40期:患难见真情

时间:2017-03-16   栏目:商务英语对话  点击:
核心句型:
When push comes to shove, only your true friends will still stand by you.
当事态严重时,只有真正的朋友还会支持你。
push和shove都是推的意思,但是shove的程度要更深一些,表示“用力推”。所以when puch comes to shove这个短语的意思是:“当事态严重或情况危急时”。因此,当美国人说"When push comes to shove, only your true friends will still stand by you."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"When things become worse, only your true friends will support you."、"When you get into trouble, only your true friends won't betray you."。
情景对白:
Terry: I know you are in trouble now, but I will do my best to help you at any time.
泰瑞:我知道你现在有麻烦,但是我在任何时候都会尽力去帮助你的。
Benjamin: I really appreciate that. When puch comes to shove, only your true friends will still stand by you. That's so true.
本杰明:太感谢了。当事态严重时,只有真正的朋友还会支持你。这句话说得真对啊!
