  • Hey, Alison. Hey, Nicole. What's up?

  • Just hanging out. Talking about something other than a man.

  • It's called the Bechdel test. We learned about it when we were studying feminism. We'd tell you more, but we'd fail.

feminism [ˈfɛməˌnɪzəm]

n. 女权主义、争取女权的运动

  • Cool, cool. So, Alison, my parents are throwing a dinner after Emery's graduation, and they said I could bring a date.

  • Great! I'm so excited to finally meet your mom.

  • Oh, Mrs. Huang? You're gonna love her. I hung out with her when I babysat Eddie.

  • We were more like co-babysitters.


n. 临时照顾幼儿者

  • No, she paid me to watch you. Later.

  • Don't be nervous. Parents love me...

  • My mom wants me to date a Chinese girl.

  • What? She said that?

  • She's been saying that for a long time.

  • If we talk to our baby, he'll learn the sound of our voices. Hey, little baby, this is your baba. Uh, that must be your buffalo wings. Be right there!

  • Baby, this is your mother. You're going to date a Chinese girl.

  • I thought she'd gotten over that, but I guess she didn't understand we were dating.

  • How can she not understand?

  • I don't know! I said you were my boo, my fly girl, my fine shorty. I don't know how much clearer I could have been.

  • So, is she gonna hate me?

  • I really would love to say no here. Well, maybe it won't be tha bad. I mean, once she meets you at the dinner, I'll bet...

  • No. No way. Now that I know this, I can't meet your mom for the first time at a graduation dinner. It's too much pressure.

  • What if I set up a casual hang at my place? Then you can meet her in a controlled setting!

  • Yeah, that's good. I'll bring her a lemon cake. Everybody loves lemon cake, right?

  • I don't. I wouldn't. Mnh-mnh.
