Wait. Wait. Who the hell was that?
My physics teacher's husband.
What kind of school do you go to?
Why was the husband of your physics teacher trying to strangle you?
If you want to blame somebody,
you can blame my mother.
Oh, I'd love to,
But what exactly would I be blaming her for?
Ezra taught me how to drive,
but he never taught me how to get away from our family.
I thought you liked your world. I thought so too.
When Ezra left home, our mom was furious. So was I.
以斯拉离开后 妈妈很生气 我也是
It took me a long time to realize
I wasn't angry at him for leaving.
I was pissed because he didn't take me with him.
Why did you want to go with him?
Because he's not the only one with dreams.
But if I was gonna get free, I'd have to do it on my own.
So I thought getting thrown out of prep school
would be a good start.
If I failed enough courses, broke enough rules...
What happened? My mother made every infraction disappear
with the wave of her checkbook.
But what exactly would I be blaming her for?但我要怪她什么
blame someone for something:把某事的责任归咎于某人,因某事责怪某人
I don't blame her for dumping me.
I blame him for not observing the rule.
But if I was gonna get free, I'd have to do it on my own.但我必须要靠自己来获得自由
How can I get free of my vexation?
on one's own:独自地； 独立地； 主动地
I was able to finish the job on my own.
He can be left to work on his own.
on one's own initiative主动地
She helped her students on her own initiative.
on one's own account为自身利益

stand on one's own feet独立自主
