Feifei

大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
… and don’t you know who I am?! I’m Rob. 

Feifei
Yes, we all know that, Rob.

Rob
Yes, but I am the Rob – Rob of Authentic Real English. There is nobody else like me.

Feifei
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Don’t milk it!

Rob
Eh? Come on, show me some respect. Oh, Ouch! I seem to have pulled a muscle – oooh, that hurts.

Feifei
Come on, Rob - you hardly moved.

Rob
Ouch! It’s in my lower back. It’s so painful. Oh, I don’t know if I can carry on. 

Feifei
You are milking it again!

Rob
Feifei – what am I ‘milking’ exactly?

Feifei
Everything! “Milk it” 这个表达的意思是 “充分利用一件事情、一个处境,从而获得同情、尊重或骗取他人的善意”。Rob 就经常假装可怜,获取同情,所以我才对他说 “You are milking it!”。

Rob
Are you talking about me?

Feifei
Of course I am, Rob. Let’s hear some examples of other people ‘milking it’.

Examples
OK, don’t milk it, Sam! You’ve told me a hundred times you’ve got tickets for the World Cup final.

Tom’s had a week off with a cold? I think he’s milking it now.

Since her promotion, Freya keeps bossing us around and telling us to call her ‘Miss Brown’ – she’s really milking it!

Feifei
这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语”。刚刚我们讲过了 “milk it” 这个动词短语的意思。我们通常用 “milk it” 来描述一个人充分利用一件事情,一个处境,来从中获取同情、尊重或好处。So Rob, have you got what ‘milking it’ means?

Rob
Yes, I do, and I seem to have recovered from my pulled muscle, but I’ve become so… thirsty, I was wondering…

Feifei
… if I could get you a drink of milk?

Rob
No, Feifei. I was thinking of a cup of coffee. You are so very kind and generous.

Feifei
You’re milking it again, Rob. Actually, I’ve got just the thing for you. Hold on…

… meet Daisy.

Rob
A cow! How do I milk that?

Feifei
I’d start down there somewhere. Good luck. Bye.

Rob
Bye.
