DARREN: So, you have three days off. What are you going to do?
SCOTT: I don't know. Probably I'm just going to hang around here and relax.
DARREN: Watch MTV, huh?
SCOTT: Not just MTV. I will probably rent some movies with Sylvia.We'll order some pizzas. Just relax.
DARREN: That's pathetic1.
SCOTT: Huh? What do you mean "pathetic"? What's wrong with it?
DARREN: Spending three days like that is a kind of vegetable life.
SCOTT: Hey, listen. I work hard. If I want to relax on a long weekend, that's my business.
DARREN: Of course it's your business. But you should have better recreation2 than TV.
SCOTT: Yeah? Like what?
DARREN: You should get out of the house. Go out into nature.Or you should learn to play an instrument or something. Or learn to draw.But just sitting here and watching TV--that's idiotic3. You're wasting your life.When you are older, you will have no memories. Your whole life will be all TV.
SCOTT: And you, Mr. Righteous, what do you do on the weekends?
DARREN: Well, this weekend Betty and I are going to a wine tasting on Saturday.And you know I'm in an archery club. Probably I'll do some practice on Sunday.And maybe I'll do some windsurfing with my friend Lou on Sunday or Monday.But the weather might not be good, so I don't know.
SCOTT: And you think all that is better than watching TV?
DARREN: Of course. For one thing, it requires some movement.For another, I do those things with my wife or my friends. There is some activity together.That's what recreation should be. Not just sitting in front of a screen.Sometimes I think TV is a kind of parasite4.It attaches5 to people's brains, and sucks6 away their lives. SCOTT: I don't know.I don't watch much TV during the week. So I think it's all right on the weekend.
DARREN: But three days, Scott. You have three days here.You should have some better plans. SCOTT: I'll think about it.
戴伦:你有三天的假期,要做什么?
史考特:我不知道,或许在这里闲晃,休息休息。
戴伦:看音乐电视吗?
史考特:不只是音乐电视,也许和丝维亚去租电影。订披萨,好好休息。
戴伦:真是可怜。
史考特:什么?你说“可怜”是什么意思?有何不对吗?
戴伦:三天那样过,真的是活得很乏味。
史考特:嘿,听着,我工作得很辛苦,如果我要休息一整个周末,那是我的事。
戴伦:当然是你的事。但是你应该有比看电视还要好的消遣。
史考特:是吗?像是什么?
戴伦:你应该离开屋子,走向大自然。或者学点乐器之类的,或是学画画。单单坐在这里看电视是很蠢的,是在浪费生命。等你再老一点,你将没有回忆。你的整个人生就是电视。
史考特:那么你呢?正义之士,你周末都做些什么?
戴伦:这个星期六贝蒂和我要去品酒。而且我也参加了箭术俱乐部,星期天可能要去练习。还有星期天或星期一要和我的朋友鲁去冲浪。但是天气可能不乐观,还不知道。
史考特:你认为那些比看电视更有益吗?
戴伦:那当然。理由之一,那需要运动。理由之二,我和太太或朋友一起做那些事,一起活动。消遣活动理当如此,而不是干坐在屏幕前。
有时候我觉得电视是寄生虫。它附着在人的大脑,并且榨干人的生命。
史考特:我不知道。我平常工作日不太看电视,所以我觉得周末看看还好。
戴伦:但是三天耶,史考特,你三天都在这里。你应该有更好的计划。
史考特:我会考虑看看。
