Diego:That's three in six months!
Natalie:What's three in six months?
Diego:That's three of this company's employees who have been hired away by other companies. First, there was Lamar. I wasn't surprised that headhunters were interested in Lamar, since he was clearly a rising star.
迭戈：公司里有三名员工被其它公司聘走了 。第一个是拉马尔 。猎头公司对拉马尔感兴趣，这并不让人意外，因为很明显他是行业里的后起之秀 。
Natalie:Yeah, Lamar was a tough loss. His unique set of skills is hard to duplicate.
娜塔莉：是的，拉马尔是个很艰难的损失 。他独特的技能很难再被复制 。
Diego:You're telling me! We haven't been able to find a replacement. After Lamar, there was Sariah. Sariah is a classic case of brain drain. There are great jobs in McQuillanland, with lucrative pay and a low cost of living. I'm not surprised Sariah took that job.
迭戈：这还用你说！我们还是没能找到下一任适合的人选 。继拉马尔之后，萨拉也跳槽了 。萨拉是人才流失的典型案例 。麦克奎蓝岛上有很多好的工作机会，报酬很诱人，消费水平却很低 。萨拉接受那份工作，我也不感到意外 。
Natalie:Sariah was very talented. We couldn't match the offer she received and she took the better deal.
娜塔莉：萨拉很有天赋 。我们给的待遇不如别人，她选择了更好的交易 。
Diego:And today, Melinda tells me that she's probably going to accept an offer from a startup that's made her an offer she can't refuse.
Natalie:Not Melinda, too! You know what, I think I'm finally catching on. Maybe we should be putting out feelers for better job offers ourselves.
娜塔莉：不止是梅琳达！你知道吗，我觉得我最终也会顺应潮流 。也许我们应该自己去试着寻找更好的工作机会 。
Diego:No, not you, too! Before long, I'll be the only one left here. I thought you'd help me talk Melinda into staying.
迭戈：不，你不行！不久之后，这里就只剩下我一个人了 。我想你应该帮我劝说梅琳达留下 。
Natalie:No, not me. You know what they say: If you can't beat them, join them!
娜塔莉：不，我不去 。你知道有句名言：不能与之为敌，便与之为伍 。
