Simone: So, what did you think of Bruce? Isn't he great?
Dirk: Well, he's certainly direct and forthright with his opinions. I don't think I've ever met anyone who speaks his mind the way he does.
德克：是的，但他说话直接，总是对自己的观点直言不讳 。我从来没遇到像他那样表达自己的人 。
Simone: Yeah, isn't that great? I've never liked a guy who straddles the fence or has namby-pamby opinions. I've always liked guys with strong opinions.
西蒙：是的，这样不是很好吗？我不喜欢那些犹犹豫豫、无病呻吟的人 。我一直很欣赏能坚持已见的人 。
Dirk: Well, there's strong and there's pigheadedness. Don't you think?
Simone: What?! You think Bruce is pigheaded, just because he doesn't budge when other people try to sway him? I think that's an admirable trait.
Dirk: I think being blunt can be admirable under the right circumstances, but being stubborn as a mule can make it hard on other people, don't you think?
Simone: No, I don't. Other people can pull their punches if they want to, but a man who'll speak up about what he believes in and stand by it is a real man to me.
西蒙：不，我不这样想 。如果别人愿意，说话可以有所保留，但是对我来说，一个人能表达自己的想法，并坚持自己的立场，那就是真正的男子汉 。
Dirk: I can see why you two make a perfect couple. I hope never to be on the wrong side of an argument with either one of you.
德克：难怪你们俩是一对完美的夫妇 。我希望你们俩永远不要对立起来争吵 。
