  影片对白

  Martin Luther King, Jr. : The motor is now cranked up and we are moving up the highway of freedom toward the city of equality. And we can't afford to stop now, because our nation has a date with destiny. We must keep moving. I have a dream this afternoon that one day right here in Detroit, Negroes will be able to buy a house anywhere that their money will carry them, and they will be able to get a job.

  Woman: Made my peach cobbler!

  Effie: Curtis!

  Curtis: Hey, baby, you know my sisters.

  Effie: Tell me something. Do you think it's right to promote an amateur performer over a professional?

  Curtis: I don't know what this is about.

  Effie: It's about fairness, Curtis. It's about people paying their dues. Ain't that what you keep telling me? "Get in line, Effie. Wait your turn." So why am I sitting here without so much as a B-side on the 45 when an amateur like Martin Luther King, Jr. Gets his own freakin' album? I mean, can he even sing?

  Curtis: All right, that was a good one.

  Effie: You're a great man, Curtis. Isn't your brother a great man?

  妙语佳句,活学活用

  1. Crank up

  这里的意思是"Get started",例如:The theater season is cranking up with four benefit performances. 这是一个1930年代的俚语,来自于"转动曲柄以发动汽车"。

  2. Pay one's dues

  意思是"Earn something through hard work, long experience, or suffering 获得自己应得的",例如:She'd paid her dues in small-town shows before she finally got a Broadway part.

  3. In line

  这里的in line 是指"prepared; ready",get in line 的意思就是get prepared。

  4. B-side on the 45

  A 45 was an old fashioned record album in the US in the 1960s. The B-side was the second side of the album, where less popular tunes were put. Effie 意指自己的"不受重视,不得意"。
