Coupling – Flushed (1×01.3)


Продолжаем разбор первой серии Coupling. Разбираем минуты 7-10, со слов Jane “We can work on your problems”.

Транскрипт.
Но лучше первый раз смотрите не читая.

We can work on your problems.

I can’t believe you!
I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings.
I just never thought it’s a relationship as such.
I just thought we’re having a bit of fun, a bit of sex.
Ah, yeah.
That’s what I thought. I mean, that’s pretty much, pretty much the way I see things…
– Well, you’re alright?
– Yeah.
I mean, it’s not as if we’ve been faithful or anything.
Oooops!

You’ve got to let me out, please!
Look, why don’t we give it … a year?
Because if we give it a year, I will end up horribly murdering you and hacking up your body.
Okay. How long do you suggest?

– I’m so sorry. I have no idea.
– It’s fine.
We are only seeing each other once a week.
That’s not exactly a sex life.
You must be doing a lot of, um, solo flights.
– No, I wasn’t!
– Oh, come on!
I certainly was not.
I was saving it all up for you.
No. Really?
Ooooops!

Some relationships are supposed to end;
there are some relationships the world is better off without.
Remember Crippen?
Here we go.
Bring up Crippen again.
You seem to forget the Crippens enjoyed many happy years of marriage before he murdered her.

Please, listen to me.
They didn’t just give it up straight away.
They worked at it.
That’s the real lesson of the Crippens.
He killed her and was hanged for her murder.
Yes. Eventually.

Look, I’m not saying it wasn’t good.
I’m just saying it didn’t seem like a week’s worth.
No. Don’t look like that.
Not everyone has my level of sex drive.
– I mean, for start, you’re a bloke…
– All right! All right.
I wasn’t gonna say anything, but actually, I’ve been seeing someone else, too.

You’ve been cheating on me?
– What?
– Is this true, Patrick?
– But you were cheating on me!
– I wasn’t cheating.
I wasn’t being faithful.
You are being faithful,
and that means you are cheating.
And I thought I knew you.

Do you know what I’m going to do?
I’m gonna walk out of here.
Whether you accept it or not,
I’ll never speak to you or see you again.
That is it. Over.
– Steve, we just …
– Don’t, Don’t, Don’t!
Stop suggesting things, or telling me what you are wearing,
or doing anything with your breasts.
Going.

Look, I just wanted you to know something.
Not like something to work, Jane.
I experienced the passionate connection with you that I’ve never encountered before.

Ты должна отпустить меня, пожалуйста!
Слушай, почему бы нам не подождать еще годик?
Если мы подождем еще годик, кончится тем, что я убью тебя и разрублю тело на куски.
Ну хорошо. Ну а сколько ты предлагаешь?

Грамматика

Present perfect continuous

You’ve been cheating on me?
Form: [has/have + been + present participle]
We can use the present perfect continuous to:
1. talk about an activity which started in the past and is still going on now:

He has been working here for three years. He started working in McCarthy’s in 2003 and now (in 2006) he’s still working there.
She‘s been living in London since 2000.

2. talk about a past activity which has a result in the present:

Have you been decorating? Your clothes are covered in paint!
He‘s been working all day so he is tired now.

be being

I wasn’t being faithful.
You are being faithful.

The verb ‘to be’ is, in most cases, what we call a stative verb. These are verbs which refer to states rather than actions, and are hardly ever used in continuous (progressive) verb forms.
I am sad at the moment (NOT I am being sad …)

However, some verbs that are usually stative can be used in continuous verb forms when they have certain meanings. Be is one of these verbs.

The following sentences are correct because be is used to describe an action and not a state:
The children are being very naughty (= They are doing naughty things)
He was being careless (= He was doing something carelessly)
