Dave: Zina? Zina the Snake?
Zina: I got your e-mail a couple of months back.
Dave: Yeah? Which one was that?
Zina: The one that said, ＂You're a 1) creep. / From me you won't hear another 2) peep. / I hope you 3) wreck your jeep.＂
Dave: Right. That one. 4) Did it work?
A: I told dad you wrecked the car!
B: You're not going to get away with this. It was your fault, not mine.
【Did it work? 灵验了吗？】
A: My brain doesn't seem to work well today.
B: You're better take a walk outside. But be back soon. We have a lot of work to do this afternoon.
A: I understand you had a bad cold yesterday.
B: It's gone. My grandma's prescription really works.
