Melissa:This is a disaster!
If we have to recall 100,000 units, we'll take a huge loss this year.
Lee:We have no choice. The product defect poses a safety hazard.
李:我们别无选择 。产品缺陷造成了安全隐患 。
If we don't act quickly, we'll have a huge liability issue on our hands.
Melissa:I think we're blowing this out of proportion.
Only a small amount of our June product run was affected.
Lee:Yes, but even one case of someone getting hurt because of the defect would be a PR nightmare, and that's on top of the charges of negligence we'd have to face in court.
We need to get ahead of this now.
Melissa:All right, all right.
I guess we have no choice. Should we hold a press conference to announce the recall?
Lee:We'll send out a press release first and then hold a press conference.
Melissa:I'm putting you in charge of it. Get it done.
梅丽莎:我交给你全权负责 。你去搞定 。
Lee:You mean in charge of getting the press release sent out?
Melissa:I mean that and the press conference.
You can face the press and answer their questions.
Lee:You're throwing me to the wolves?
Melissa:Not at all. I'm helping you raise your profile in the company.
梅丽莎:正相反 。我在帮助你提高你的公司形象 。
You should be thanking me.
Lee:Somehow I don't feel so grateful.
