  • Thank you for driving me to work.

  • You know this is my day off, Sheldon.

  • Oh, good. I’m not keeping you from anything. Your check engine light is on.

  • Mm-hmm.

  • Typically that’s an indicator. To, you know, check your engine.

indicator [ˈɪndɪˌketɚ]

n. 指示器、[化]指示剂、指示者

  • It’s fine, it’s been on for, like, a month.

  • Well, actually, that would be all the more reason to, you know, check your engine.

  • Sheldon, it’s fine.

  • If it were fine, the light wouldn’t be on. That’s why the manufacturer installed that light, to let you know it’s not fine.

manufacturer [ˌmænjəˈfæktʃəɚ]

n. 制造商,制造厂、厂主、[经]厂商

  • Uh, maybe the light’s broken.

  • Is there a “check the check engine light light”? O-o-o-oh!

  • What?

  • Studies have shown that performing tasks such as eating, talking on a cell phone or drinking coffee while driving reduces one’s reaction time by the same factor as an ounce of alcohol.

  • Do you have any alcohol?

  • Of course not.

  • Too bad.
