I was looking for the Weekly Volcano office.
I wish to see Mr. Dashwood.
A friend of mine desired me to offer a story by her.
She... She wrote it.
She'd be glad to write more if this suits.
Not a first attempt, I take it.
She has sold to Olympic and Scandal,
and she got a prize for a tale at the Blarneystone Banner.
We'll take this.
With alterations. It's too long.
But you've cut...
I took care to have a few of my sinners repent.
The country just went through a war.
People want to be amused, not preached at.
Morals don't sell nowadays.
Perhaps mention that to your friend.
What compensation...? How do you...?
We pay 25 to 30 for things of this sort.
We'll pay 20 for that.
You can have it. Make the edits.
Should I tell my... uh, my friend
you'll take another if she had one better than this?
We'll look at it. Tell her to make it short and spicy.
And if the main character's a girl,
make sure she's married by the end.
-或者死了 两者择一 -什么
- Or dead. Either way. - Excuse me?
What name would she like put to the story?
对了 不署名 劳驾了
Yes. None at all, if you please.
Just as she likes, of course.
早安 先生 再见
Good morning, sir. Good day.
My Beth would like you very much.
I'd like a room for two.
Perfect. That's 4.50 a week.
And that's a good price.
Isn't that a little expensive?
This is a boardinghouse, not a charity.
I need the rent on time.
Good afternoon, Miss March.
You're on fire.
You're on fire!
-谢谢 -我也有同样的毛病 你瞧
- Thank you. - I have the same habit. You see?
Kitty and Minnie are waiting.
- My students need me. - Always working.
Money is the end and aim of my mercenary existence.
No one gets ink stains like yours
just out of a desire for money.
My sister Amy's in Paris,
and until she marries someone obscenely wealthy,
it's up to me to keep the family afloat.
The Decadents have ruined Paris, if you ask me.
These French women couldn't lift a hairbrush.
I said, these French women couldn't lift a hairbrush.
是的 太对了 马奇姑妈
Yes. Very true, Aunt March.
Don't humor me, girl.
What do they write, your troublemaking family?
Mother doesn't say anything about Beth.
I feel I should go back. They all say, "Stay."
You can do nothing if you go back.
The girl is sick, not lonely.
And you shouldn't go home until you and Fred Vaughn
are properly engaged.
Yes, and until I've completed all of my painting lessons, of course.
-停车 是劳利 -你要干什么
- Stop the carriage! Is Laurie! - What are you doing?
-劳利 劳利 劳利 -艾米
- Laurie, Laurie, Laurie! - Amy!
How are you?
My, you've grown so much.
You wrote you'd meet me at the hotel.
I couldn't find you.
You didn't look hard enough.
I didn't recognize you. You're so beautiful now.
- Stop it. - I thought you liked that sort of thing!
-才没有 你爷爷呢 -他在德国
- No. Where's your grandfather? - He's in Germany.
He's still traveling.
I'm traveling on my own now, just relaxing.
-调调情 赌赌博 喝喝酒 -是的
- Flirting, gambling and drinking. - Yes. Well...
don't tell your mother.
Are you chasing some young girl across Europe?
I couldn't believe Jo turned you down. I'm so sorry.
别这样 艾米 我...我不遗憾
Don't be, Amy. I... I'm not.
- You come back here right this instant! - Oh, Aunt March.
Come. Come on.
- Aren't you looking grand? - Get him off me!
We need to be somewhere. Off you go!
Laurie! Come to the New Year's Eve party.
是个舞会 大家都会来 包括弗莱德
It's a ball, and everyone will be there, including Fred.
Pick me up at the hotel at 8, The Chavain.
还有 劳利 穿得喜庆点
And, Laurie, dress for festivities!
Top hats and silks!
I will. I'll wear my best silk.
Twenty yards of the blue silk, as well as pink.
Someone will be by for it later.
Meg, that would look so lovely on you.
I know just the dressmaker to send you to.
You'll be the prettiest wife in Concord.
I... John needs a new coat for winter,
and Daisy and Demi need new clothes.
And his wife needs a new dress.
I can't. It's... I just can't.
He'll be so pleased with how you look,
he'll forget all about the expense.
I don't suppose it's too much of an extravagance.
Will 20 yards do?
- Yes. - Very good.
Fifty dollars? What was I thinking?
- Mommy! - Mommy!
