Malcolm:Do we really need to start doing spring cleaning today?
Lorna:We really should. The drapes need to be washed, the walls need to be wiped down, and the attic needs cleaning out.
洛尔娜:肯定要干啊 。帘子要洗,墙壁要清洁,阁楼也该收拾收拾了 。
And we really should clean the upholstery on the sofa and dining chairs.
Malcolm:That's a lot of work for two people.
Lorna:And I haven't even mentioned what needs to be done in the kitchen.
We need to defrost the freezer, clean the oven, clean out the cabinets, and scrub the floors.
Malcolm:I'm not sure I have the energy for all that.
Lorna:We also need to wash the windows, window screens, and windowsills, steam clean the carpets, and sweep out the garage.
洛尔娜:我们还需要清洁窗户, 纱窗和窗台,清洁地毯,打扫车库 。
Malcolm:If we hope to do all of that this weekend, then I think we need reinforcements.
Lorna:What do you have in mind?
Malcolm:I'm not the high school football coach for nothing.
Malcolm:I think the guys need an extra hard workout this weekend.
