Explanation:

释义:

Kenny: Let's talk about the idiom 'dig your heels in' today. 

肯尼:今天我们来聊聊习语"dig your heels in"。

Ross: Yes Kenny, 'dig your heels in' means that you refuse to change your opinion or plan, even if someone is really trying to make you do so.

罗丝:好的,肯尼。"dig your heels in"是指即便有人想要改变你的想法或是计划,你仍旧坚持己见,不妥协不让步。

Kenny: Right! If you dig your heels in, it means you are stubborn about your own decision. 

肯尼:正确!如果说你“dig your heels in”,意思就是说你固执己见。

Ross: That's it! For example: we wanted to go out on Freda's birthday, but she dug her heels in and we had to celebrate it at home.

罗丝:对,就是这样。例如:我们想出去为弗雷达的庆祝生日,但是因为她的坚持我们不得不在家庆生。

Kenny: Hmm...I don't see a problem. After all it's her birthday! We should not dig our heels in when it comes to deciding about someone else's party.

肯尼:嗯……我认为那不是个问题。毕竟那是她的生日!既然是别人的聚会,我们不应该固执己见。

Ross: Maybe. Anyways, 'to dig one's heels in' means to resist something very firmly, especially when somebody is insisting that you should do something else.

罗丝:或许吧。不管怎样,“to dig one's heels in”这个习语表示某人坚决抵触某事,特别是当有人坚持你应该做某事时。

Kenny: Should we listen to some conversations now? 

肯尼:现在让我们听些情景对话吧。

Ross: Absolutely!

罗丝:好的!

玛丽亚:你没听到我一开始说的话么?我今天哪儿都不去!

Jim: C'mon honey! Don't dig your heels in like that! You know the guys will be waiting for us...

吉姆:别这样,亲爱的!不要那么固执嘛!你知道他们在等我们……

Maria: This is so unfair! I want to go out on Saturday, not today!

玛丽亚:这太不公平了!我想周六出去,而不是今天!

Jim: Alright! I give up. We won't go out today. 

吉姆:好吧!我妥协了。我们今天不出门。
