【知識點】

1.????? Fall? off

脫線被芬恩和霍莉錯認為是美國的特工,他們一同來到了飛機上,芬恩經歷了之前的事之后,感嘆道,只有面對死亡時才會覺得充滿生機。霍莉關心設備的安全,說道,但愿設備沒有掉下。而毫不知情的脫線以為自己還在坐機場的飛機。說這是趕航班最千鈞一發的一次了。Fall? off表示“摔倒,跌倒”的意思,在這里是指掉下來,設備從脫線身上掉下來。

2.????? First-class

脫線以為芬恩和霍莉互相不認識,他給他們互相介紹。他首先向霍莉介紹芬恩,說這位是芬恩,是機場頭等貴賓什么的。他向芬恩介紹霍莉說,這位是我的約會對象,然后問霍莉叫什么名字。First? class是最好的; 第一流的; 優秀的意思,這里表示現代的頭等艙候機室和公司商務飛機。

3.????? Metric & inch

他們三個人在一起分析案子,霍莉展示出照片,脫線說,這是他見過的最差的系統,其中惠特沃斯螺栓最麻煩了,它們的單位既不是米,也不是英寸。Metric是度量標準,表示米;inch是英寸的意思。一米大約是四十英寸。
