Sheila: Where are you going? 你要去哪儿? Rudy: I’m going to the video store to rent a movie for tonight. Do you want to come? 我去音像店租个电影今晚看。你要来吗? Sheila: You don’t need to do that. We can watch nearly any movie you want online. 你不必这样做。我们在线可以观看任何你想电影。 Rudy: Oh, you mean we can pay to download it?
哦,你的意思是,我们可以付费下载吗?

Sheila: Yeah, we can download it, but we don’t have to pay for it.
是的,我们可以下载,但我们并没有为它付出。

Rudy: What do you mean? You’re not using a file-sharing site, are you?
你是什么意思?你不使用文件共享网站,是吗?

Sheila: Of course, I am. Everybody is doing it.
我当然用文件共享网站。每个人都这样做。

Rudy: Aside from the ethical issues, it’s so frustrating watching videos online. The ones that stream are constantly pausing to buffer. The interruptions drive me crazy!
不说道德问题,在线看电影很烦人。要不停地缓冲。视频中止会让我发疯!

Sheila: Yeah, sometimes, but there’s usually a workaround.
是啊,有时,但通常都有一个解决办法。

Rudy: Even so, the movies are usually pirated and they’re so grainy. I want to watch something in high definition. Come on, let’s go to the video store. It’ll be my treat.
即便如此,电影通常都是盗版的,影片不清晰。我想看高清晰的电影。来吧,让我们去音像店。这次我请客。
Sheila: All right, if you insist, but why can’t we just pay to download it right here at home?
好吧,如果你坚持,但我们为什么不能付费在家下载呢?
Rudy: We could do that, but where would we get the popcorn?
我们可以那么做,但我们去哪里弄爆米花呢?
