Gunther:I think this party has run its course and I'm ready to call it a night.
Maria:But there are still a few stragglers who seem reluctant to leave.
How do we politely tell them to go home?
Gunther:I'll just make an announcement.
Maria:Wait! That seems kind of rude.
Let me try a few hints. I'll tell them that we're out of drinks.
让我试着给他们些提示 。我觉得跟他们讲我们饮料喝光了不错 。
Gunther:If you do that, one of those guys is liable to offer to make a beer run.
That's not going to do the trick.
Maria:What if I go over there, yawn, and comment on the lateness of the hour?
That should be obvious enough without being too rude.
Gunther:Those people aren't going to respond to subtlety.
Let me handle this.
Maria:What are you going to do?
Gunther:I'm going to do what bars do at closing time.
I'm turning up the lights and turning off the music.
Maria:And if that doesn't work?
Gunther:I'm going to yell “lights out, people!” and mean it!
