The script of this programme 本节目台词
William: Hi I"m William and welcome to Authentic Real English.
Feifei: Don"t you think Brad Pitt is lovely?
William: Brad Pitt?
Feifei: Yes he"s tall, handsome… and of course an amazing actor.
William: Yeah and I"m sure he"s worth a few bob too.
Feifei: A few bob?
William: Yeah I think Brad Pitt is worth a lot of money.
Feifei: So a few bob means a large amount of money?
William: Well a few bob actually means a small amount of money but it"s usually used in an ironic way, to mean a lot of money.
Feifei: A few bob 的意思就是一点儿钱。通常使用这个短语时都带有讽刺的意味，表示很多钱。
William: Here are some examples.
A: She"s has got the brand new phone I want!
B: Yeah and look at that designer handbag, she definitely looks like she"s got a few bob.
A: Did you see John"s new car?
B: Yes it"s amazing! He"s definitely not short of a few bob.
William: In that last example the speaker said not short of a few bob.
Feifei: Not short of a few bob 的意思就是他非常富有。
William: Sometimes instead of saying a few bob people will say a bob or two.
Feifei: 有时候我们也可以说 a bob or two 来表示 a few bob. I definitely think Brad Pitt is worth a bob or two.
William: Feifei, I think you"re getting obsessed with Brad Pitt!
Feifei: I"m not obsessed 痴迷的！ I just think he"s a very good actor!
William: Yeah yeah yeah! Anyway back to today"s phrase, here is an example using the phrase a bob or two.
A: Did you sell your old furniture?
B. Not yet, but I"m hoping to make a bob or two out of it.
Feifei: So William, are you worth a bob or two?
William: I couldn"t possibly answer that Feifei!
