  【片段剧情介绍】

  Sheldon 为了晋级宽带说服Leonard去赚“外快”, 可是Sheldon却暂时改主见了。

  SHELDON: I don’t think I can do this.

  LEONARD: are you kidding? You’re a semi-pro.

  SHELDON: No. We are committing genetic fraud. There's no guarantee our sperm's going to generate high-IQ offspring. Think about that. I have a sister with the same basic DNA mix who hostesses at Fuddruckers.

  LEONARD:Sheldon, this was your idea. A little extra money to get fractional T1 bandwidth in the apartment?

  SHELDON: I know. And I do yearn for faster downloads. There's some poor woman who's gonna pin her hopes on my sperm. What if she winds up with a toddler who doesn't know if he should use an integral or a differential to solve for the area under a curve?

i-pro: 半作业选手.这儿Leonard说Sheldon 常常来这儿, 都赶上半作业选手了.semi- 标明“半,不完全地”之义如semi-automatic 半主动的、semi-final 半决赛;pro为professional的缩写.

  2. Committing …fraud: 欺诈. 英语中犯…罪用”commit”这个词.如commit a murder谋杀

  3. There's no guarantee that:不必定. There’s no guarantee that the richest is the happiest.

  4. yearn for盼望, 期望. 在写作文时,不要老是用hope和wish.留心yearn for表达的盼望之情很激烈.

  5.pin one’s hope on:把期望寄予在.Parents always pin their hope on children.

  6.wind up with以…而告终.Their seeming perfect plan winds up with failure.

  I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up. --Jack Dawson,Titanic(我喜爱早上起来时,悉数都是不知道;不知会遇见啥人,会有怎样的结局。《泰坦尼克号》杰克)

  7.solve for求出,解出. Solve for y in terms of x,用x求出y.
