A Box of Memories 3
I mean, would you look at us! Are we rich, or what?
Kevin, we're not rich. Dad's insurance money will barely pay for college for one of us. Not to mention the rent, and bills, and...
Are you kidding me?... Fifty thousand dollars! I could get a motorcycle... a laptop....
你跟我开玩笑？… 50000美元！我能得到辆摩托车… 一部手提电脑…
Kevin, try to remember why we're getting this money.
I remember... So what are we gonna do?
First, we cash in these savings bonds.
Next, we'll call the life insurance company and see how we can cash in the policy.
Oh, no. One of those automated answering services.
Yeah, where did all the human operators go?
They put me on hold. Maybe we should talk to Uncle Brendan and ask what would be better--CD or some other kind of investment.
Yeah, especially for the big money from the insurance policy.
Wait a minute.
For information on redeeming an insurance policy, please press three now.
Yes, hello... my father died recently and I'd like to cash in his insurance policy.
One moment. Can you hold, please?
Yes, I can hold...
Boy... beneficiary, fiduciary, underwriting. . . Every word they use is a mile long.
天哪 … 受益人，执行人 ,赔款… 他们用的每个词都太长。
I have a feeling this is gonna take some time...
Yes... yes, I understand. Can I have your name please? Joan... Thank you very much, Joan... Bye.
对 … 对，我明白了。请问您叫什么名字？琼… 非常感谢你，琼… 再见。
It's not a big deal. They said we'd probably get the money in two to three months.
One minute we're broke, and the next minute we're loaded.
Look, I've been thinking about what you were talking about...
Me too. I think that...
Let me go first, OK?... Rebecca, I want you to go back to college. That's what Dad would want, too.
I've been doing some thinking, too. I've decided that I can't leave you here alone.
I know this is hard for you to believe, but I'm not a little kid anymore.
Kevin, I don't think of you as a little kid, I...
Sure you do... Look, I've been talking to a few of my friends, and they all have jobs. Three of them want to move in here with me. We'd split the rent four ways.
当然 … 哦，我已和我的几个朋友谈过，他们都有工作。他们其中的3个人愿意搬来与我同住。我们四人平分房租。
Sounds like a great idea, but aren't these the same guys that got thrown out of that apartment on Gardener Street?
It wasn't their fault. The landlord was a creep.
Sure. And what happens if you and your friends can't cover the rent?
We'll pay the rent. You'll see.
I don't think it's such a smart idea to live with these guys. It could lead to trouble.
That's what I'd be there for--to keep them in line.
Oh, Kevin, be serious for once. I mean really...
'Kevin, what happens if you do this? Kevin, what happens if you do that?' When are you going to stop acting like my mother?
Kevin, let's not start that again.
No, let's get this out in the open, once and for all. You don't think I can do anything by myself. Rebecca, why don't you just go back to San Francisco and let me live my own life?
Kevin, I don't want to start another argument. I am too tired. I don't have time for this.
Rebecca... admit it. You just don't want to go to San Francisco.
丽贝卡 … 承认吧。 你只是不想回旧金山。
Kevin, that's not it.
Sure it is. You're using me as an excuse because you don't want to go to college.
Kevin, I want to go back. I should be there. I need to be there for a hundred reasons.
Then go back, Rebecca, go back... I can take care of myself, believe it or not.
You're all the family I have. We'll be thousands of miles apart.
What's a few thousand miles? I mean, they have phones there, don't they?
Yeah, well... let me think about it...
对，好 … 让我想想 …
