12 Things You Didn’t Know About Prince Charles

Marissa Laliberte

Learn some little-known secrets about the heir to the British throne.

He was bullied in school


Even royalty isn’t immune to the taunting of schoolchildren. Prince Charles went to boarding school at Gordonstoun in Scotland, and he didn’t have the best experience. His classmates picked on him, which would drive him to isolation. When a classmate would talk to him, bullies would start making slurping sounds to imply his peers were “sucking up,” according to Robert Jobson in Charles at Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams. The teenager kept a stiff upper lip in school, but he didn’t hide his pain from his family. “The people in my dormitory are foul,” he wrote in a 1963 letter. “Goodness, they are horrid. I don’t know how anybody could be so foul.”

boarding school =寄宿制[全寮制]の学校
pick on=〔からかうようなことを言って〕いじめる
suck up=吸い上げる、〈俗〉おべっかを使う、ごまをする
keep a stiff upper lip=気を落とさずに頑張る、くじけない

He’s a huge fan of leftovers


Piling leftovers into Tupperware seems undeniably un-royal, but Prince Charles’ disdain for food waste trumps any desire for fresher grub. “If we made roasted lamb and there were leftovers, we’d probably go and make Shepherd’s pie the next night,” former royal chef Carolyn Robb told a biographer. “The prince was very economical and very much believed that nothing should go to waste. If there were leftovers, they’d be used one way or another. If not for him, then rehashed and used for a meal the following day.” Prince Charles would even pack up leftovers from tea time and reuse them day after day until they were gone, his former private secretary Clive Alderton added. You won’t believe these other 15 surprisingly frugal habits of the British royal family.

Shepherd’s pie=マッシュポテトで作るパイ皮と牛肉(または羊肉)で作るイギリスのミートパイ
If not for=もし~がなかったら

He’s a proponent of organic eating


For 28 years, Prince Charles has managed the Duchy Home Farm, where he raises cattle, pigs, and sheep using organic farming methods. He’s been vocal about the need for a shift in agriculture, announcing during a Soil Association event that “the very future of humanity may depend to a very large extent on a mainstream transition to more sustainable farming practices, based of course on organic principles.” And the Prince of Wales practices what he preaches. He’ll always bring a pile of organic food to the royal family’s Christmas celebrations, according to former royal chef Darren McGrady.

Soil Association=【組織】土壌協会

He’s a workaholic

Being a prince isn’t all about tea time and strolls through sprawling estates. Prince Charles works seven days a week, generally starting after breakfast and often working past midnight, according to BBC documentary Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70. “He does need to slow down,” Prince Harry said of his father in the documentary. “This is a man who has dinner ridiculously late at night, and then goes to his desk later that night and will fall asleep on his notes to the point where he’ll wake up with a piece of paper stuck to his face.” Wife Camilla Parker Bowles blames his sometimes overzealous work ethic on the fact that “he would like to change the world.”

work ethic=労働倫理

He supports hundreds of good causes

good cause=慈善、大義、正義

It’s no surprise that Prince Charles keeps such long hours, given that he’d patron or president of more than 400 organizations. He supports everything from horticulture and hospices to rugby clubs and orchestras. Learn about the 13 secrets Queen Elizabeth II would prefer we don’t know about Prince Charles.

keep long hours=長時間働く
given that~=~だということから考えると

He has written a children’s book

Prince Charles wrote the 1980 instant-classic The Old Man of Lochnagar based on a story about a Scottish man that he told his little brothers, Andrew and Edward, when they were little. The picture book has since been adapted into an animated film, a musical, and a ballet, with proceeds benefitting Charles’ charity for at-risk kids and young adults, The Prince’s Trust.

at-risk kid=〔非行に走ったり虐待を受けたりするなどの〕危険な状態にある子ども
young adult=10代後半の若者

He’d fallen for Camilla before meeting Diana

fall for=~を好きになる、~にほれる[ほれ込む・恋する・首ったけである]

When Prince Charles was 23, one of his friends from university introduced him to Camilla Shand, hoping the two would hit it off, according to Charles at Seventy. The two became fast friends, and Charles fell hard for Camilla. Unfortunately for the prince, his love interest was still in love with her own former flame, Andrew Parker Bowles. When Parker Bowles’ Army duties sent him to Germany, Charles seemed to have a chance with the girl of his dreams—that is, until Charles himself left for an eight-month Navy duty in 1973. By the time he came back, he’d missed his chance. Camilla was engaged to Parker Bowles. Don’t miss these other 15 things you never knew about Duchess Camilla.

hit it off=〈話〉仲良くする[なる・やる]、折り合う、気[そり・うま・意見]が合う、意気投合する、相性が良い
fast friend=親友
love interest=恋愛の対象

He didn’t really want to marry Diana

How could the fairytale romance between Prince Charles and Princess Diana go so wrong? Blame the affairs, blame the terror of the paparazzi—or just accept that their romance wasn’t what it seemed. The two had only met a dozen times before they married, and even after they were engaged, Prince Charles started regretting the proposal. He told his friends at the time that he wanted to get out of the wedding because he hadn’t really gotten to know his fiancé, according to Charles at Seventy. So why get married, if not for true love? “Things were very different in those days,” the Prince of Wales later told close friends. “The power and influence of the media driving matters towards an engagement were unstoppable.” Check out these 15 little-known facts about past royal weddings.

n’t what it seem=見かけと違う

He has performed in Shakespeare plays

Prince Charles is a supporter of the arts, especially when it comes to classic Shakespeare works. He even made an appearance in a skit for BBC’s Shakespeare Live in 2016, and in a 1991 speech he referred to the Bard as “the world’s greatest playwright—perhaps the world’s greatest poet.” His soft spot for Shakespeare might go back to his teenage years when he stole the show playing Exeter in his school’s play of Henry V and later landed the lead part in Macbeth.

the Bard (of Avon)=エイボンの詩人 《Shakespeare のこと》
(have a)soft spot for=~に弱い、~が大好きである、~が好みである
lead part=主役

Some fear his strong opinions could get him into hot water

hot water=〈話〉困った状況、窮地

Part of the royal family’s involve supporting public causes, but for the monarch (currently Queen Elizabeth II), it’s unconstitutional to express any political opinions. Prince Charles has a history of veering into the realm of politics—he condemned a number of government-backed London building projects in the 1980s, and these days he passionately discusses climate change—which some fear doesn’t bode well for the next in line for the crown. But in a recent BBC documentary, he brushed aside fears that he wouldn’t be able to separate his political ideals as prince from his need for neutrality as king. “I’m not that stupid,” he explained. Find out which 10 rumors about the royal family are totally false.

climate change=気候変動
n’t bode well=幸先が悪い、先が思いやられる。
for the next=今後
in line for=~の候補で、~を約束されている
brushed aside=払いのける、無視する

He has open-minded views on religion


Ever since Henry VIII split with the Catholic church in 1530, English and British monarchs have been deemed “Defender of the Faith” during their coronations—a promise to uphold the Church of England. Queen Elizabeth II is a devout Anglican, but her son Prince Charles has hinted that he might veer away from a single-religion view. He said in a 1994 interview that he’d prefer to be “Defender of Faith” over “Defender of the Faith.” He’s later said he’ll stick to the traditional wording when he’s crowned, but that won’t stop him from promoting inter-faith dialogue, according to Charles at Seventy. He’s studied the Koran and Judaism in depth, attended Catholic Masses, and made a point of visiting Christian, Sikh, Muslim, and Hindu communities during official visits. “The future surely lies in rediscovering the universal truths that dwell at the heart of these religions,” he has said.

split with=〔…と〕仲たがいする
Defender of the Faith=信仰の擁護者
the Church of England=英国国教会
Anglican=英国教会の、英国教会系の、聖公会の◆英国教会=the Church of England、《英国》イングランドのプロテスタント
make a point of=努めて[必ず・決まって・忘れずに]~する
lie in=〔手掛かり・問題などが〕~にある
universal truth=普遍の真理

He can laugh at himself

Prince Charles once asked some staff what they thought of several busts of him that had been given to him as gifts over the years, according to Robert Jobson’s Charles at Seventy. When the staff responded “Very good likenesses, sir,” Prince Charles responded with a humorous touch of self-deprecation: “Yes, but they always get one thing right: my bloody ears.” You won’t want to miss these other 50 things you never knew about the British royal family.

How Princess Diana Forever Changed How Royal Women Give Birth

Marissa Laliberte

Will Meghan Markle follow suit?

follow suit=〈話〉先例に倣う、後に続く   

Princess Diana left an undeniable mark on the royal family, especially when it came to her role as the mother of two princes. From sending William and Harry to nursery school instead of having them home-schooled, to letting them eat pizza and potato skins, she paved the way toward making royalty more like any ol’ family (that just so happens to live in a palace). And her just-a-typical-mom mentality shone through even before her kids were born.

nursery school=保育園◆3~5歳の子どものための学校
potato skins=ポテト・スキン◆加熱したジャガイモを切り分けて中身をくりぬき、薄く身を残した皮の部分だけを焼き上げて味を付けた前菜。

”ポテトスキン (Potato skins) は、皮つきのジャガイモを半分に切り、穴を開けてベーコン、チェダーチーズ、ワケギ等をトッピングしたスナック、オードブルである。この料理で有名なティージーアイ・フライデーズ等のカジュアルダイニングのメニューで良く見られる。レストランで食べられる他、アメリカ合衆国中の家庭で手作りもされる。スーパーボウル等の大きなイベントの際にもよく食べられる。”

pave the way=道を開く

Home births were the norm for royal and non-royal families alike until the 20th century, but royals being royals, they weren’t about to change tradition just because hospital deliveries were becoming popular. George VI was born at Sandringham Estate in 1895, Queen Elizabeth II was born at her grandparents’ home in 1926, and Prince Charles was born in Buckingham Palace in 1948. So when Princess Diana headed to the hospital to give birth, it caused quite the stir.


Prince William was the first future monarch to be born in a hospital when his mother opted for the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in 1982, following the footsteps of her sister-in-law, Princess Anne. That day also set the precedent for future royal births. Not only did Diana go back to St. Mary’s to give birth to Prince Harry, but Kate Middleton welcomed all three of her and William’s children in that same hospital. Find out which other 14 pregnancy rules royal women have to follow.

Lindo Wing=Frank Charles Lindo, a businessman and board-member of the hospitalが資金を出した個室のウイング

But that wasn’t the only way Diana changed royal birth traditions. Queen Victoria had given six natural births before discovering anesthetics—chloroform, at that point—in 1853. She famously hated pregnancy but loved the modern medicine, declaring it “that blessed Chloroformsoothing, quieting, and delightful beyond measure.” Queen Elizabeth II is said to have continued the tradition with three of her four babies by using drugs to enter a “twilight sleep” that would keep her from being fully awake during their births.

beyond measure=非常に
twilight sleep=《医》半麻酔状態

Diana, meanwhile, had “the first active royal birth” and delivered Prince William while standing up, natural childbirth Sheila Kitzinger, who attended to the birth, wrote in her memoir, which was published in excerpt form on the Daily Mail. Kate Middleton followed Diana’s footsteps, opting for a “natural birth” for all of her kids. Check out these 21 adorable royal baby photos from throughout history.

Sheila Kitzinger=シェイラ・キッチンガー(作家)
the Daily Mail=1896年創刊のイギリスでもっとも古いタブロイド紙

With a new royal baby on the way, only time will tell if Meghan Markle ends up following in Diana’s footsteps or taking on the tradition of earlier royal women. Rumors are circulating that she’s considering either Frimley Park Hospital or a home birth. Whatever she and Prince Harry decide, they can thank Diana for the fact that either choice will be perfectly acceptable. Don’t miss these other royal rules Princess Diana changed for good.

changed for good=改善する

The Real Reason Prince Charles Always Wears a Ring on His Pinky

Claire Nowak

Why have we never noticed this before?!

When it comes to royal fashion, the women tend to take the spotlight: Queen Elizabeth and her brightly colored outfits; the Duchess of Cambridge and her call-backs to Princess Diana’s classic styles; the Duchess of Sussex’s way of bending royal dress protocol. Check out these things you didn’t know about Prince Charles.

take the spotlight=世間の注目[スポットライト]を浴びる
the Duchess of Cambridge=ケンブリッジ公爵夫人
the Duchess of Sussex=サセックス侯爵夫人




Yet there’s one royal fashion statement that few people are talking about, but still has us puzzled: the ring Prince Charles wears on his left pinky finger.

It’s not his wedding ring, although he also wears that piece of jewelry on his left pinky. This large gold band is called a signet ring, or a gentleman’s ring, and is often worn on the pinky of one’s non-dominant hand. Bloomberg reports that signet rings have been used since Old Testament times. They are engraved with a family crest or personal signature, which can reflect the owner’s social status. Beatrice Behlen, senior curator of fashion and decorative arts at the Museum of London, told Bloomberg that members of the middle class would use signet rings to signal that they were of a higher class because they did not have coats of arms.

signet ring=印章指輪◆認め印付きの指輪
non-dominant hand=非利き手
Old Testament=旧約聖書
engraved with=~を彫り込んだ
family crest=家[氏族]の紋章、家紋
Beatrice Behlen=ベアトリス・ベエレン
middle class=中流階級
coat of arms=紋章

So if anyone had any doubt that Prince Charles was in fact royalty, they’d need only check for the official signet of the Prince of Wales on his left hand. By the way, this is what Queen Elizabeth would prefer we not know about Prince Charles.


The prince has been photographed wearing his ring since the mid-70s, Good Housekeeping reports, and Princess Diana had one of her own. Since Kate Middleton’s family was granted a coat of arms before her marriage to Prince William, members of her family have also been spotted wearing signet rings bearing their crest.

Kate Middleton=キャサリン妃の旧名

Signet rings are not required for the members of the House of Windsor, but they are a subtle way to boast their status and familial pride. On the other hand, these are the dress code rules everyone in the royal family must follow.

House of Windsor=ウィンザー朝、1917年に始まる現在のイギリスの王朝
subtle way=さりげないやり方
dress code rule=ドレスコード、服装規制[規定]◆通例、正式さの度合いが高い順に、formal wear, semi-formal wear, informal wear, casual wear, sportswearと分類される

[Source: Good Housekeeping]

Pinky ring, from Wikipedia

Use in the British Royal Family

The use of the left-hand pinky finger as the wedding ring and royal signet or initial ring of the British Royal Family is an ironclad tradition dating back to the sons of Queen Victoria, who favored pinky rings in imitation of their mother as well as following German custom. Queen Victoria's son Prince Leopold wore many rings on his left pinky, as did all of the sons of King George V. King Edward VII did not assign any special significance to his left pinky as later generations did, and his son George V wore no rings at all. The best example of such a ring was the one worn by King George VI. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, consort to Queen Elizabeth II, wore his father's signet ring until sometime in the 1970s, when he ceased to wear any signet.  Prince Charles wears the official signet of the Prince of Wales, which ring is nearly 175 years old and was last worn by the former King Edward VIII (styled as the Duke of Windsor following his abdication) when he was still Prince of Wales. Prince Charles, as well as the other men in the family, wear their signets on top of their wedding bands.

consort= (特に王族の)配偶者

Ext. Villa Garden - Med. Long Shot - Day

Terry and Nickie come up the steps and look around the garden.  Nickie is
carrying a gift-wrapped package.


Terry         Oh, what a divine place!  Perfect.  I'm beginning to think you
                 have a grandmother.

Nickie        You do?  Just a minute -- I'll see if she's there.

He hurries toward house.  Terry follows slowly.

Int.  House - Reverse Angle

Nickie  (calling)
           (he turns, calls again)

Not getting an answer, he places the package on the piano, then walks outside
to meet Terry.

Ext.  Garden - Terry and Nickie

Nickie       She's not here...Oh, she must be in the chapel.

He goes toward chapel.  Suddenly a large dog comes bounding out, barking a
welcome.  Nickie stops to pet him.  Camera pans up:

Nickie       Hello - hello, Jacques -- still remember me?

Terry        What is it about this place?  Something about it makes you feel
                  you want to whisper.  There's such peace here -- it's like another

Nickie         My grandmother's world.

Terry          Tell me a little more about her.

Nickie         My grandfather was in the diplomatic service.  They lived all over
                  the world.  This was his last post.  He died here...so she stayed on
                  to be near him.  He is buried there beside the chapel.  She must be
                  waiting - I think a little impatiently - for the day she will join him.

The door opens disclosing GRANDMOTHER.  She sees Nickie.



Nickie runs in and they hug each other.

GRANDMOTHER  (in French)
                 Nickalo, my dear!  Why didn't you tell me you were arriving?
                 (Nickolas, mon petit, pourquoi ne m'as tu pas prevenue?...)

Nickie  (in French)
                 I wanted to surprise you.
                 (Je voulais te faire une surprise.)

GRANDMOTHER  (in French)
                 So you are going to be married!
                 (Alors, c'est vrai, cela, tu vas te marier?)


Nickie  (in French)
                 Married?  I don't know...But you are getting younger -- you're
                 ten years younger!  How do you do that?

GRANDMOTHER (laughs, hugs him seeing Terry over his shoulder - in French)
         Is this the girl?

Nickie  (in French)
           (breaking embrace, starting forward with Grandmother - in English)
                 May I present Terry McKay --

Med. Close Shot - Including Terry


Nickie  (to Terry)
                 She thought you were the girl I'm going to marry.

Nickie        How do you do?

Terry        How do you do?

GRANDMOTHER (to Nickie -  in French)
                 She is charming.  I like her very much.
                         (to Terry - in English)
                 Oh, pardon.  I was only saying I liked you very much.

Terry        Thank you.  I'm glad. 

If you'll excuse me, I'll sit down for a moment.

Nickie        Oh, pardon --

I'm longer at my prayers nowadays --
                 (sitting down)
                 -- and my knees -- well, they're as old as I am.
                  (to Terry)
                 Are you English?

Terry        No, I'm American.

American!  Do you know, my dear, I have a special fondness
                  for America.  It was my husband's first post after we married.

Terry        Really?

Yes...In fact, we went to Washington on our honey moon. 
                  Mr. Theodore Roosevelt was your President.  His daughter Alice
                  was married in the White House, and we all went to the wedding.
                  I remember the bride - she was lovely...and caused such a
                  sensation - she did not wear a bustle.
                  (she smiles, remembering)
                  It was the second American revolution.


Terry        You have such a lovely place here.

Thank you.

Terry        I could stay on forever.

You are too young for that.  It is a good place to sit and remember,
                  but you still have to create your memories.

Terry walks toward the chapel a little.

Would you like to go inside the chapel?

Terry        May I?

Terry starts for the chapel, and Grandmother rises.

How long has it been for you, Nickalo?

Nickie         Well - er --

Since you were an altar boy.  Then you'd better go in, too.  It won't
                  hurt you.
                  (as Terry starts inside)
                  I'll prepare tea.

Bartender  The cigarette stand, sir.

Nickie  (starts - stops)
                 Have you got pink champagne?

Bartender  Oh, yes.

Nickie exits.  Terry enters from outside and camera pans her over to bar.


Terry       Champagne cocktail, please.

Bartender Yes, madame.


Terry  (as bartender brings up second glass)
                Have you any pink champagne?

Bartender  Oh, yes.

The bartender mixes drinks.  Nickie re-enters and picks his drink up.
Nickie and Terry turn to each other and smile, then drink.

Nickie        I changed my table to a table for one.

As he speaks a blonde moves in and sits next to Terry, leaning over to
hear them speak.

Terry       So did I.

Nickie  (in a low voice)
                It's too bad it had to be like that -- after such a delightful
                dinner last night --

Terry becomes conscious of people all listening, turns to Nickie.

Terry        Do you speak Gaelic?   


Nickie      Fluently.

Terry  (in Gaelic)
               Let's leave here.
Terry smiles, then gives the blonde a dirty look, leans over and blows into
her ear softly.  She rises and Nickie walks with her to the door - Camera
panning with them.  They look at each other, then exit in opposite direction.

Ext. Sun Deck - Day - Traveling Shot

Nickie enters and walks past the row of deck chairs in which women of
all ages and sizes are stretched out with a lot of legs showing.  He
finally stops in front of one deck chair in which a woman has a hat
pulled down over her face.

Nickie       I never forget a face.

The woman pushes back the hat, revealing herself to be Terry.

Terry (looking up at Nickie)

Nickie sits down in the chair next to her.

Nickie        Didn't your mother warn you about sun decks?

Terry       Yes, she told me to 'Watch out for -- freckles.'
                                            (=~に注意する)  (=そばかす、染み)

Nickie (looking at her)
                Any place in particular?

A Page Boy comes along the sun deck with a sheaf of radiograms,
calling:                                                     (=〔まとめた〕束)

Page Boy   Signore Ferrante --

Nickie (stopping him)
                 That's me, boy.
          (he tips him, and takes the radiogram)
                 Pardon me, Miss McKay.

Boy (turning back)
                 McKay?  I have a radiogram for you too.

Terry (taking radiogram)
                 Pardon me, Mr. Ferrante.

Both Terry and Nickie stand back to back reading their radiograms.
As they finish they turn facing each other.

Nickie and Terry (in unison)
        From him?
                 From her?

Both nod.


New Angle

Nickie        Now, where were we -- you were about to tell me
                 where you were born.

Terry         Boston...

Nickie        And from there...?

Terry         I grew up quickly, went to New York and got a job singing
                 in a night club from ten to three in the morning. Then the
                 manager used to chase me around his office till about four
                 - then I went home.  One night, Ken came along...

Nickie        Oh, yes...

Terry       And he said I didn't belong in a place like that...he said that...

Nickie       I didn't say anything.  But where did he say you belonged?

Terry        Well, he said that - er - well, he said I belonged on Park
                Avenue with a lovely view of...

Nickie       Of him?

Terry       Well, in a way...

Nickie       And of course he was in business?

Terry       Sort of...

Nickie       And a penthouse on Park Avenue was an ideal place for you
                to improve yourself?

Terry        Yes...so I studied hard.

Nickie      Singing?

Terry       Various things.

Nickie      So that one day you'd make a charming and lovely wife.

Terry        That was the general idea.

Nickie       And then you discovered he was married.

Terry        No.

Nickie       Not married?

Terry        Separated.
         ( a pause)
                Well, that sort of brings us up to date.  Now my life's an open
                book.                (=~に最新の情報を伝える)

Nickie       That's only one page.

Terry       That's the only page.

Photographer (off)
I beg your pardon!

They both turn and look off and see the ship's photographer with camera
raised.  He snaps it.

Grazia -- thank you very much.

Nickie turns back to rail.

Terry        Oh -- that's bad...ah --
         (she pantomimes them together)

Nickie       Oh --
          (to photographer)
                That's a beautiful camera you have there.

                Oh, yes --

Nickie  (taking plate out and pulling inside out and walking back to rail)
                Takes very clear pictures, eh?

                Oh, very clear - yes -
                   (as he sees what Nickie is doing)
                Oh, please, Signore -- stop!

He grabs plate and holds it behind him - Terry grabs it, and as he turns
to her, she drops it overboard - he glares, then exits, furiously.
                           (=船外へ)      (=にらみつける)


Terry      I guess it's no good for either one of us to be seen together. 
               Right or wrong, people will talk.  It had better be goodbye.

Nickie     What's the matter - afraid?

Terry      Of you?  No.

Nickie     But after all, we're on the same ship - there are still five
               days - you know.

Terry       Oh, you can take long walks in the sunshine --

Nickie      What'll I do if it rains?

Terry      No - it's no good.

Nickie     I see -- it's particularly no good for you.

Terry      Yes, that's right.  Being seen with you is news, and I don't
               want to get my picture in the paper.  So I guess we'd better
               - sub-divide...

He nods, she smiles and they exit in different directions.

Int. Dining Room - Night


Terry and Nickie are seated at a table.  People are having dinner
in the background.

Terry (sweetly)And when you were little - what did your nurse read
                     to you at bedtime...the memoirs of Casanova?

Nickie (solemnly)
                     Every night and then we'd turn out the light.

Terry reacts - Nickie adds hastily.

Nickie            I was only so big --
          (he indicates a little tot)
               (=表す)            (=〈話〉小さい子ども)

Terry (insidiously)
                     You must have had a happy childhood.

Nickie beams.

Terry           And women - you've known quite a few,
                     haven't you?                     (=かなりの数)

Nickie          Mmmm...

Terry  (helpfully)
                     Or maybe few is the wrong word?

Nickie           Let's say it's not precise.

Terry  (calculating)

Nickie  (a vague gesture)   

Terry          Would an IBM machine help?

Before he can answer the waiter enters.

Waiter         I beg pardon, Signore Ferrante - would you like me
                    to reserve this table for you every night?

Nickie looks at Terry - she nods.

Nickie(a smile)Why not?

The waiter exits.

Terry (picking up where she left off)
                    And I suppose they've all been madly in love with you...
         (he agrees)
                    But, of course, you haven't much respect for them...
         (he agrees to this, too)
                    ...Still, you've always been fair in your judgment.

pick up=〔会話を〕再び始める
leave off=〔仕事・話などを〕やめる、中止する

Nickie         I've been more than fair. I idealize them...Every woman
                    I meet I put up there -
           (holding his hand up high)
                   But the longer I know her - the better I know her...

more than=~どころではない、非常に~で、この上なく

His hand has dropped below the table. He seems surprised to find it
missing.  He discovers it below the tablecloth.  He shrugs. 


Nickie        Now, let's talk about you.

Terry          No-ooo...not tonight.   The statistics wore me out.  We'll
                  talk about me some other time...We've nothing planned
                  for tomorrow.

wear out=疲れさせる

Nickie         I have.

Terry        No -  we'll talk about me tomorrow.

Int. Terry's Suite - Med. Shot - Night
                            (=medium shot ミディアム・ショット◆long shotと

The door opens and Terry, followed by Nickie, enters as she speaks.

Terry         It's just that my mother told me never to enter a man's
                   room in months ending in "R".

Nickie          Your mother must be a very clever woman.  What is
                   your name?

Terry           Terry McKay.  Terry McKay, and I'm traveling alone.
                   (as he starts into room)
                   Was that by any chance what was troubling you? 

Nickie (stops and turns to her)
          (walks back and looks around)
                   Oh, this is fine -- You saved my life, you know - I was
                   bored to death -- I haven't seen one attractive girl on
                   this boat since we left -- not one.  It's terrible -- it's
                   not for me -- Life should be bright -- it should be
                   beautiful and bubbly, like champagne.  I got scared - I
                   said to myself "Don't beautiful women travel anymore?
                   Evidently not."  And then I saw you and it was all right
                   -- I was saved - I hope.
          (offering her case)



Terry           No thanks.
          (walks back toward chair)
                   Have you been getting results with a line like that?
          (sitting on arm of chair)
         Or would I be surprised?


Nickie (sitting down)
                   If you were surprised, it would surprise me.  

Terry           That sounds like a nasty crack.  I could make a few
                   too if I felt like it.


Nickie          I'm sure you could.

Terry           I know I can.

Nickie          That's what I said.

Terry          I think I will -- Does your fiancee know the 'lady of
                    the yacht Gabriella'?

Nickie         Yes - it was her best friend.

He rises and goes toward veranda as she speaks.

Terry          Friendly group.

Nickie          The boat is going awfully fast.
          (he starts back to her) 
                   Only six and one-half days till we get in. Is there any
                   reason why - from now on...it shouldn't be pink

She looks at Ken's picture which is on a table with a huge vase of
fresh cut flowers,  So does he.  Then, crosses and sits on the other
arm of chair. 

Nickie (indicating picture)
                   Is that him?

Terry         Uh-huh.  Flowers every day.
          (indicating vase of flowers) 

Nickie          Nice - mmm?
          (she nods yes)
          (she nods and fingers her pearls, which does not escape
           Nickie's notice)
                   He looks healthy, too.

Terry         Handball -  twice a week... 

Nickie (he winces at the handball)
                  And a massage - before he sees you?

Terry         Four times a week.

Nickie        Where is he now?

Terry         Reno.  

        カジノで知られ「世界で一番大きな小都市(The Biggest Little
        City in the World)」の愛称で呼ばれる。

Nickie         Business?

Terry          Not exactly.

Nickie         Pleasure?

A beat.

Terry (slightly turning her head)

Nickie (his eyebrows arch)
                  And he suggested a trip to Europe while...

Terry          Messy, isn't it?

He nods. A beat.

Nickie         And I suppose he wouldn't approve of pink cham...?

Both         No-ooo...

He examines the picture again.

Nickie         Very touching - I mean, his trusting you alone...in Europe.

Terry          Isn't it?

Nickie         He must feel very sure of himself.

Terry        Horribly.

Nickie (a beat - hopefully)
                  No mistakes?  No little slips?  Tiny errors?


Terry (sadly)Not one.  Five years.  Isn't it awful?

Nickie looks at Ken's picture again.

Nickie        He looks very engaging.

Terry         You can imagine how attractive he is when I can resist
                 so charming a person as ---
          (she indicates Nickie)   

Nickie (rising)
                 I think I'll go now.
          (he edges back toward door)
                 Well - there's still deck tennis - Keno - Shuffleboard...
                 and an early plunge in the pool...

Terry (astonished)
                 Don't tell me you're embarrassed?

Nickie        Yes.  Yes, as a matter-of-fact, I am.  And if you don't mind,
                  I'll take my pride for a walk...
           (opens door - hesitates)
                  Unless,  you care to have...

Terry          Dinner with you?  I'd love to.

And goes out.  He closes the door behind them.

Med. Shot - Shooting Toward Door

Nickie enters, goes through door, looks around, then disappears
inside as camera moves forward along windows.  Camera stops as
Nickie comes out of door and looks around deck for Terry.  Then he
paces back and forth.  Terry comes out from inside and watches
him pace a moment.

Terry       What's the matter - did you lose it again?

She grins and walks out.

Nickie      Look -

Camera pans him to her.

Nickie           I am in trouble -- serious trouble.

Terry              Well,  I could have told you -- playing around yachts. 
                       The poor thing!

Nickie           I must talk to someone.

Terry            Well, I'm not very good at that sort of thing - I talk
                      a lot - I'm trying  to break myself of the habit.

Nickie             No -- you have an honest face.  I can trust you,
                      can't I?

Terry           (taking small mirror from her purse and looking into it)
                      Yes, I guess so.

Nickie (taking her arm)
                     Come with me.

He starts leading her to door as she speaks:

Terry             Yes, but the captain has an honest face, too -- why
                     don't you tell him your troubles?

They exit inside.

Int. Ship's Corridor - Dolly Shot - Night

Nickie and Terry come around the corner and start forward as camera
moves back with them.  Halfway down, he turns to her.

Nickie            Shall we go to your cabin or mine?

Terry (hesitating in her walk)
                     Oh -- m-mine.

Nickie (as they walk on)
                     Maybe mine is closer - it's just -

Terry  (crossing to door behind him)

She opens door and enters as he reacts, then goes to door, gives little
look back toward his room, then follows her through door as she says:

He starts to close door after himself.

Long Shot - Ship At Sea - Dusk

Ext. Promenade Deck - Steamship - Dusk

Passengers are strolling in evening dress, having their after dinner
smokes on the balmy deck as the camera trucks up to the
entrance to the ship's interior as a page boy steps onto the deck,
takes another look at the name on his list, reflects interest and
pride in his mission, takes a deep breath and calls out:

page boy=ボーイ、給仕

Page Boy    Signore Ferrante?

A Man              No.

The man, with his lady friend, exits as the boy turns and calls again:

Page Boy    Signore Ferrante!

He starts down the deck, camera following him as he speaks to
another man. 

Page Boy    Signore Ferrante?

Second Man     No -- is he on board?

The boy grins as he goes on down the deck, calling:

Page Boy    Signore Ferrante! Signore Ferrante!
          (stops at stairway and looks up questioningly)
             Signore Ferrante?

Nickie comes down the steps and stops.

Page Boy    There's a phone call, from Paris, Signore.

Page boy exits as three middle-aged school teachers rush in
to Nickie surrounding him.

First Woman  Oh, Mr. Ferrante - will you autograph this
picture of you, please? Write something we'll always remember.

Second Woman
          Something sizzling!

Nickie      I'll have to postpone this pleasure until later
          - I'm wanted on the telephone---if you will

He bows and exits.

Gabriella is lying on her bed, scantily clad in sheer negligee. 
She is very angry and volatile.

                     the things you did - and you about to be

As Nickie comes out of the booth, a large man and his wife

                   it in the -- wait a minute --how do I know it's yours?


Nickie (impressed)
           There is an inscription to me on the inside.
                                    (= 〔贈呈された本に書かれた〕献辞)

Closeup - Terry

She opens the case.

Terry (reading)
                   To Nickalo --

Terry looks at him with slightly arched eyebrows, but with a serious


Terry     Don't tell me you're the famous --
                  (Nickie looks embarrassed)
                  -- I've read so much about you!
                  Let's see, was it in Life or Look -- ?

Nickie (embarrassed)
                  Woman's Home Companion.

Terry          Oh.

Closeup - Nickie

Nickie (in mock embarrassed)
                  Now, may I have my cigarette case?

Two Shot - Featuring Terry

She starts to read the rest of the inscription - then:

Terry    This is frightfully intimate.  I just know enough French
                  to be embarrassed.  Can you clean it up a little and tell
                  me in effect what it says?

be embarrassed=恥ずかしい思いをする
clean up=整理する
in effect=要するに

Nickie    In French?

Terry  (smiling)
                  No, in English.

Nickie         Well, it says, in effect, 'in memory of three wonderful
                  nights on La Gabriella' --
                  - that's the name of her yacht.

Terry (nodding)
                  I guess that's you all right.

She hands him the cigarette case.


Two Shot From Nickie's Angle

He studies her a long moment.  Her face is still dead serious.

Nickie    Did you write the song 'I'LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN'?

Terry's manner softens and she gives him an infectious smile. 


Terry    No -- but I may write one called "MOON OVER LA
                 Do you think it will ever take the place of night baseball?

She humorously shakes her head negatively and exits. 
Nickie watches her off, very much intrigued.

182   EXT. CENTRAL PARK - DAY                                     182    Christina is running.  She sees a good-looking
MALE RUNNER coming toward her.  She has no hope
that he will notice her, and starts to look away
as they get close to one another. MALE RUNNER  Hi. CHRISTINA   Hi. He passes her.  Christina can't believe it. She does a little dance of joy. Camera pulls back as we see her by the reservoir
on a beautiful morning doing her little
celebratory spin.

Then she resumes her morning exercise, running on.

183   INT. THE SINGLES TEMPLE - FRIDAY EVENING                    183    Patricia comes in.

The place is packed.  There are hundreds of young
Jewish New Yorkers singing folk songs and dancing
the hora.  The Rabbi is dancing among them.


Patricia sees the rabbi, leading the dance. The rabbi whirls madly toward her, like a human


RABBIT     Shabbat shalom!

Shabbat shalom=good wishes、幸せを祈る気持ち、幸運を

He grabs Patricia's hand, and to her surprise, they
go whirling off together. 184   INT. KATHLEEN'S BEDROOM - DAY                               184    Kathleen at the computer, typing. KATHLEEN (V.O.)I have been thinking about this and                I think we should meet. She clicks the send button and then exits from
America On Line. On her computer screen we now see the standard
screen with several icons: American On-Line, Word,
Recycle Bin, etc.

She clicks Word. She goes to File: New. There are several choices of format. She stares at the choices.  Then she clicks Book
format. A blank page appears in the computer. She starts to type:  "Once upon a time there was
a little girl named..." She pauses for a moment and looks around the room.
She sees the flowers that Joe brought her. And then she types: "Daisy." As she goes on typing... 185   INT. JOE' BOAT - NIGHT                                      185    On Joe typing.

JOE (V.O.)   We should meet.  And we will meet.                 But I'm in the middle of a project                that needs...                (he pauses to think of the right word)                ... tweaking.

A look of calculation on his face.

186   EXT. STARBUCKS - DAY                                        186   

We can see Kathleen through the window, drinking 
a cup of coffee. And now we see Joe walk into Starbucks.  He waves at
her, pretending surprise at seeing her.  Has he been
watching the store and waiting for her to come in? 
We'll never know. 187   INT. STARBUCKS - A FEW MINUTES LATER                        187    He's sitting next to her at the counter in the window. JOE            Tweaking? KATHLEEN       That's what he said. JOE            He's probably married. KATHLEEN       That's a terrible thing to say.                 It's not possible. JOE            Have you asked him if he's married?                 Have you said, "Are you married?" KATHLEEN       No. Joe looks at her, shrugs. 188   INT. KATHLEEN'S BEDROOM - NIGHT                             188    AS SHE TYPES: KATHLEEN (V.O.)I know this is probably a little                late to be asking, but are you                married? 189   INT. JOE'S OFFICE - NIGHT                                   189    AS HE ANSWERS: JOE (V.O.)   Am I married?  What kind of a
               question is that?  How can you ask
               me that? Don't you know me at all? 
               Oh wait, I get it.  Your friends
               are telling you the reason we
               haven't met is that I'm married. 
               Am I right? 190   INT. SIDEWALK CAFE - ANOTHER DAY                            190               (=

Kathleen and Joe having nachos


JOE            So he didn't exactly answer. KATHLEEN       He did too.  He nailed me.  He knew                exactly what I was up to.  Which is                just like him.

JOE            But he didn't exactly answer, did                he?  Did he? KATHLEEN       No. JOE            Maybe he's fat. KATHLEEN       I don't care about that. JOE            You don't care that he might be one                of those guys who's so fat he has to                be removed from his house with a                crane? KATHLEEN       That's very unlikely. JOE            Why else do you think he's putting                off meeting you?  Although... maybe                that's not it.  Maybe...
KATHLEEN       What? JOE            Never mind. KATHLEEN       What???? JOE            He could be waiting til he's paroled.

KATHLEEN       Oh, you won't believe this, there                was a moment when George thought he                might be the rooftop killer, which                was completely ridiculous -- Her voice trails off, as she considers whether it
could be true.

trail off=〔音声などが〕次第に小さくなる

JOE            What's his handle? She shakes her head.
JOE (CONT'D)   Come on, I'm not going to write him.                 Is that what you think? KATHLEEN       NY 152. JOE            One five two.  One hundred fifty                two.  Very interesting.  He's 152                years old.  He has 152 hairs
               remaining on his head.  He's had
               152 moles removed and now he has
               152 pockmarks.


191   EXT. FARMER'S MARKET ON BROADWAY - LATER                    191    As they walk past tables of bread and flowers, etc. JOE            His combined college board scores.                   (=総計の)(=米国大学協議会)

KATHLEEN    His IQ. JOE            The number of women he's slept with. KATHLEEN       The number of times he's seen The                Godfather.

JOE            That's the first good thing I've                heard about him. KATHLEEN       His address.  No, no, no.  He would                never do anything that prosaic.                                       (=平凡な)

On Joe, looking a little wounded.

KATHLEEN       The only thing I really care about                besides the married thing... and the                jail thing... is the boat thing.

JOE      The boat thing? KATHLEEN    I could never be with anyone who has                a boat. JOE            Oh. KATHLEEN       So that clinches it.  We'll never be                together.  I'll take care of these.


He picks up a mango, squeezes it. JOE      I could never be with anyone who                likes Joni Mitchell.                (singing, imitating Joni)                "It's cloud's illusions I recall, I                really don't know clouds at all."                What does that mean? Joe waits for Kathleen to say she likes Joni Mitchell. But Kathleen doesn't say anything. She starts intently picking over apples, trying to
find some she wants. pick over=選び分ける、選り抜く

JOE (CONT'D)   How's your book coming? 192   EXT. BROADWAY - DAY                                         192    As they walk away from the market, going uptown.                                     
KATHLEEN       There's a children's book editor I                know, from the store, and she's                excited to read it.  When I finish                it.  Who would ever have thought I'd                write?  I mean, if I didn't have all                this free time, I would never have                discovered -- She stops, realizing what she's saying. KATHLEEN       The truth is, he was the one who                made me start thinking about writing -- JOE            Mister 152 Felony Indictments --


KATHLEEN       Mister 152... insights into my soul.                              (=物事の本質を見抜く力)

JOE      Yes.  Well.  Can't compete with that. KATHLEEN    Well.  I keep bumping into you.                 Hope your mango's ripe.

bump into=…にドンと突き当たる、…にばったり出会う
JOE            I think it is.  Want to bump into me                Saturday?  Around lunchtime? 193   EXT. COMPUTER SCREEN - NIGHT                                193    As Joe types.

JOE (V.O.)     How about meeting Saturday?  The                first day of spring.  4 P.M.  There's                a place in Riverside Park at 88th                Street where the path curves and                when you come around the curve, you'll                find me waiting. 194   INT./EXT.

JOE            Isn't that amazing?  Maybe I've seen                him, and I don't even know it. 195   EXT. COLUMBUS AVENUE - DAY                                  195    As they walk uptown, eating their hot dogs and
drinking papaya drinks. JOE            He could be the Zipper Man. KATHLEEN       Who's that? JOE            This guy on Amsterdam who repairs                zippers.  You'll never have to buy                new luggage.                    (=

KATHLEEN       Stop teasing.                     (tease=からかう)

JOE      Timing is everything.  He waited                until you were primed.  Until you                knew there was no other man you could                ever love.

KATHLEEN    (almost believe it)                Yes. JOE            Sometimes I wonder... KATHLEEN       What? They stop walking, they look at each other. JOE            If I hadn't been Foxbooks and you                hadn't been The Shop Around the Corner                and we'd just met -- KATHLEEN       Don't. JOE            I would have asked for your phone                number and I wouldn't have been able                to wait 24 hours before calling and                asking, "How about coffee, drinks,                dinner, a movie, for as long as we                both shall live?" KATHLEEN       (almost a swoon)                Joe...   (=うっとりすること) JOE      And then we would never have been at                war.
JOE            The only fight we'd ever have is                what video to rent on Saturday night. KATHLEEN       Who fights about that? JOE            Some people.  Not us.
KATHLEEN       We would never. A long beat. JOE            If only...
KATHLEEN       Please.  I have to go. She doesn't move.
JOE            Let me ask you something?  How come                you'll forgive him for standing you                up and you won't forgive me for a                little tiny thing like putting you                out of business
Kathleen looks at him.  Shakes her head.
They look at each other. JOE (CONT'D)   Oh how I wish you would.
It's all Kathleen can do not to forgive him. It's all Joe can do not to kiss her. KATHLEEN       I really do have to go.
JOE            You don't want to be late. She's in agony.

He turns and walks away. After a moment, she does too.

She comes to a stop. Looks around. A young woman in running clothes passes by. A young father pushing a baby in one of
those strollers runners use to push babies in. Kathleen looks at her watch. Suddenly she hears a noise.  A dog barking. And Brinkley comes around the corner. VOICE          Brinkley!  Brinkley! And hold on Kathleen as she sees JOE And she starts to cry. And he comes to her.  And puts his arms around her. JOE            Don't cry, Shopgirl, don't cry. KATHLEEN       I wanted it to be you.  I wanted it                to be you so badly. And as they kiss, we hold on them. And crane up and away as we see them, a couple
kissing in the park on a beautiful spring day. A dog is leaping around them. And as we get further and further away from them,

Kathleen is in bed with a huge box of Kleenex.  
She has a terrible cold.  Her nose is red, her
eyes are watery.  On the bedside table are a huge
assortment of atomizers, pills, etc.

We hear the sound of computer keys clicking. JOE (V.O.)     Why haven't you written? KATHLEEN (V.O.)I have a cold. 169   INT. JOE'S OFFICE - DAY                                     169    We see Joe on his computer. JOE (V.O.)     How's your cold?

170   INT. KATHLEEN'S BEDROOM - NIGHT                             170    She's drinking cranberry juice.  Joni Mitchell
on the stereo.


The sound of computer keys clicking again. JOE (V.O.)   Are you feeling any better? KATHLEEN (V.O.)I'm lying in bed listening to Joni                Mitchell and drinking cranberry juice                which I am sorry to say is the exact                same color as my nose.  I keep                thinking about my future.  What                future?  What am I going to do? 171   EXT. 79TH STREET BOAT BASIN - LATE AFTERNOON
                171    As Joe is walking Brinkley back to the boat.
A limousine has pulled up near the pier and
the driver is unloading bags.


Joe stops to see the passenger: his father,
Nelson Fox.

JOE            What are you doing here? 172   EXT. 79TH STREET BOAT BASIN - DUSK                          172

NELSON     To us. JOE            Father and son, together at last.                 That happened with Gillian? Nelson ignores the question. NELSON         I've stayed here after, let's see,                your mother, Laurette that ballet                dancer --

let's see=ええっと、どれ

JOE      -- the nanny -- NELSON     Was she the nanny?  I forgot that.                 How ironic.  Then there was the ice                skater -- JOE            -- also the nanny -- NELSON         Really.  How amazingly ironic.  Sybil                the astrologer.

JOE      Whose moon turned out to be in                somebody else's house, as I recall.

NELSON     Just like Gillian. JOE            Gillian ran off with someone? NELSON         The nanny. JOE            Nanny Maureen?  Gillian ran off with                Nanny Maureen?  That's incredibly                ironic. NELSON         True true.
JOE            There's no other word for it.

NELSON         Who did you break up with? JOE            Patricia.  You met her. NELSON         Would I like her?                (cracks himself up)                Just kidding.  Isn't this great?                 Have some peanuts.  Of course I have                to live out of a suitcase for a least                three weeks, and then there's the                inevitable legal hassle, more of                your inheritance down the drain.

JOE      Don't worry about it. NELSON         I won't.  But then I get to meet                someone new.  That's the easy part. JOE            Oh, right, a snap to find the one                single person in the world who fills                your heart with joy.


NELSON         Don't be ridiculous.  Have I ever                been with anyone who fits that                description?  Have you?

Kathleen practically jumps out of her skin.  She looks
through the peephole.  There he is.

JOE            Kathleen?
KATHLEEN       Just a second. She puts on a robe, runs frantically about picking up

KATHLEEN       That's too bad.  You seemed so perfect                for each other.                (she claps her hand over her mouth)                I don't mean to say things like that.                 No matter what you have done to me,                there is no excuse for my saying                anything like that.  But every time                I see you -- JOE            Things like that just seem to fly                out of your mouth.
KATHLEEN       Yes.  I'm sorry.  I'm starting over.                (sharply)                Thank you for coming.  Goodbye.                (she says it again, a little more nicely)                Thank you for coming. Goodbye.

start over=もう一度やり直す

She starts to the door. JOE      I bought you flowers. KATHLEEN    Oh.                (trying as hard as she can)                Thank you. (=言葉などがきつい) She takes them. He takes them back. JOE      Why don't I put them in water?        (=私がしましょう)

He heads for the kitchen.  A beat, while she stares
after him. Then follows. 179   INT. KITCHEN - DAY                                          179    When Kathleen gets to the kitchen, Joe is checking
the kettle for water.  Turns on the stove. JOE            You're sick.  Sit down, please.
He pulls out a kitchen chair.  Kathleen sits. She's
a little woozy.

JOE (CONT'D)   Vase? KATHLEEN       Upper left. He gets out a vase.  Fills it with water. JOE            George says hello.  He told me you                weren't feeling well. KATHLEEN       How is George? JOE            Great.  He's revolutionizing the                place.  No one is allowed to work in                his department who doesn't have a                Ph.D. in children's literature. He unwraps the paper around the flowers.  Daisies. 
Puts them in a vase. KATHLEEN       I love daisies. JOE            You told me. He puts the vase on the kitchen table.  Kathleen
plays with the petals. KATHLEEN       They're so friendly.  Don't you think                they are the friendliest flower? JOE            I do. KATHLEEN       When did you break up? JOE            Oh, a couple of weeks ago. KATHLEEN       Everyone is breaking up.  You.  Me.                 This other person I know broke up                with someone in an elevator.  I think                it was in an elevator.  Or just                outside it.  Or after it.  It got                stuck.  I think.  And suddenly                everything became clear.  When I saw                you, at the coffee place, I was                waiting for him and I was -- JOE            -- charming. KATHLEEN       I was not charming. JOE            Well, you looked charming. The teakettle whistles.  Joe turns off the burner. JOE (CONT'D)   Tea? KATHLEEN       Upper right. He gets out mugs and teabags and pours the water. KATHLEEN       I was upset.  And I was horrible. JOE            Honey? Kathleen nods.  He puts in two spoonfuls, gives it
to her. JOE (CONT'D)   I was horrible. KATHLEEN       True.  But I have no excuse.                             (=弁解の余地はない)

She picks up the daisies and carries them into: 180   INT. KATHLEEN'S LIVING ROOM - DAY                           180    Joe follows her.  They both sit. JOE      Whereas I am a horrible person and                have no choice but to be horrible,                is that what you're saying? KATHLEEN       No I am not saying that because I am                done saying horrible things, even to                you. JOE            You did it again. She claps her hand over her mouth. JOE (CONT'D)   I put you out of business.  You're                entitled to hate me.                (=~する資格がある、権利がある)

KATHLEEN    I don't hate you -- JOE            But you'll never forgive me.  Like                Elizabeth. KATHLEEN       Who? JOE            Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and                Prejudice.  She was too proud -- KATHLEEN       I thought you hated Pride and                Prejudice.

JOE            -- or was she too prejudiced and Mr.                Darcy too proud?  I can never                remember.

                           (BEAT)                It wasn't personal -- KATHLEEN    -- It was business.  What is that                supposed to mean?  I am so sick of                that.  All it means is it's not                personal to you, but it's personal                to me, it's personal to a lot of                people.                (she shrugs helplessly)                What's wrong with personal anyway? JOE            Nothing. KATHLEEN       I mean, whatever else anything is,                it ought to begin by being personal. Kathleen stands up, picks up the daisies. KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                My head's starting to get funny.  I                have to go back to bed. They walk to... 181   EXT. KATHLEEN'S BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS                        181    Kathleen puts the daisies next to the bed and gets
into it. She fluffs up the pillows, pulls up the blankets,
surrounds herself with Kleenex and Evian and
sneezes a gigantic sneeze. fluff up=
~をフワッと膨らませる                          sneeze=くしゃみ

KATHLEEN    Why did you stop by?  I forget.                            (=人の家に立ち寄る、訪れる)

JOE            I wanted to be your friend. KATHLEEN       Oh. JOE            I knew it wasn't possible.  What can                I say?  Sometimes a person just wants                the impossible.  Could I ask you                something?
KATHLEEN       What?
JOE            What happened with that guy at the                cafe? KATHLEEN       Nothing. JOE            But you're crazy about him -- KATHLEEN       Yes.  I am. JOE            Then why don't you run off with him?                 What are you waiting for?
run off with=(人)と駆け落ちする    

A long beat. KATHLEEN       I don't actually know him. JOE            Really. KATHLEEN       We only know each other -- oh God,                you're not going to believe this -- JOE            Let me guess.  From the Internet.   KATHLEEN       Yes. JOE            You've Got Mail.
KATHLEEN       Yes.

JOE            Very powerful words. KATHLEEN       Yes.

Joe sits on the edge of the bed. JOE            I'm happy for him.  Although -- could                I make a little suggestion?  I think                you should meet him.  No.  I take it                back.  Why meet him?
KATHLEEN       (starting to get sharp again)                I hardly think I need advice from                someone who -- He reaches out and gently claps his hand over her
mouth. And holds it there.  It's unexpectedly tender
and sexy. JOE            I concede I bring out the worst in                you, but let me help you not to say                something you'll just torture yourself                about for years to come.


She starts to smile and he removes his hand.

They look at each other. JOE (CONT'D)  I hope you're better soon.  It would                be a shame to miss New York in the                spring. Joe stands.
KATHLEEN       Thank you for the daisies. He starts for the door. JOE            Take care. KATHLEEN       I will. JOE            Goodbye. KATHLEEN       Goodbye. We hear the door close. Hold on Kathleen.

sitting on little itty-bitty chairs too.


GEORGE         Then, in the 19th century,

with Annabel and Matt:


JOE            What about going to the Children's                Zoo?

ANNABEL        I don't want to go to the Children's                Zoo.

JOE            Okay.  The Staten Island Ferry.

Staten Island Ferry=スタテン島フェリー、ニューヨーク市

ANNABEL        I want to go to the Storybook Lady. MATT           I want to go to the Storybook Lady. JOE            Well we can't go to the Storybook                Lady. 166   INT. JAPANESE NOODLE RESTAURANT - DAY                       166    Annabel is sitting in her chair, staring glumly at
a bowl of Japanese soup and noodles.

JOE      I'll read you a story. ANNABEL        Where did she go? JOE            She had to close her store. ANNABEL        Why? JOE            She didn't have enough business. ANNABEL        Why? JOE            Well.  Her store was very close to                our store, and you know our store                sells books at a slightly lower cost -- ANNABEL        Why? JOE            Why do we sell at a lower cost?  So                more people can buy books. ANNABEL        Why couldn't she sell that way too? JOE            Because she's small and we're big.                 How about we go get some candy? ANNABEL        So now she's gone and it's all your                fault.
JOE            It's business, Annabel.  It's not                personal.  How about we go get so                much candy you'll be bouncing off                the walls for days?

MATT           What's personal?
ANNABEL        Personal means that she's gone                forever, and now we'll never get                another book from her as long as we                ever live.

153   EXT. JOE'S STREET - NIGHT                                   153   

As a taxi comes down the street and stops in front of 
Joe's building. PATRICIA (V.O.)What I was thinking was she'd probably                make a great children's book editor. JOE (V.O.)   Why would you think that? They get out of the cab. PATRICIA       She knows everything.  She has                flawless taste.  She's famous for                it.  The salesmen swear by her.  If                she likes it, it sells.  Period.

swear by=~を絶対に信用する

154   INT. JOE'S LOBBY - CONTINUOUS                               154    As they enter the lobby and walk toward the elevator. JOE            So you're going to offer her a job? PATRICIA       Why not?  What else has she got to                do?   JOE            Now that she's destitute --                               (=貧窮した)

PATRICIA    Thanks to you.
JOE            Well, I can't imagine her working                for you. PATRICIA       Why not? JOE            She has a horrible personality,                she's...  nice to everyone all the                time.  It's exhausting.  And her                staff turnover is ... non-existent.                 They've been there forever.  Until...                recently, when they all found out                they were going to lose their jobs.

PATRICIA    Thanks to you. The elevator door is closing. PATRICIA       Hold the elevator! They get in. 155   INT. ELEVATOR - CONTINUOUS                                  155    JOE            Hello, Charlie, Veronica. PATRICIA       Last time, we rode in an elevator,                we made the deal of the century.                 What is going to happen this time? CHARLIE        Miss Grant's going to get me a part                in one of her movies, that's what's                going to happen.

VERONICA       In your dream, Charlie. PATRICIA       (back to the conversation with Joe)                I love how you've totally forgotten                you had any role in her current                situation.  It's so obtuse.  It                reminds me of someone ... Who?  Who                does it remind me of?                     (thinks for a moment)                Me!


The elevator suddenly stops.
PATRICIA       Shit.
VERONICA       Shit. JOE            It is stuck? CHARLIE        Could be.
He pushes the open button. Nothing. Turns the key,
hits the open button, flicks the emergency switch. 
Then he starts hitting the buttons in every
possible combination.

JOE            Charlie, what are you doing? CHARLIE        Bang the door.
PATRICIA       Really. Joe bangs the door.  Nothing. CHARLIE        I hope this thing doesn't plummet to                the basement.
VERONICA       Can it do that? JOE            No. He picks up the phone. JOE (CONT'D)   This is Joe Fox.  Who is this?  Hi,                Juan. We're stuck on the sixth floor.                 There are four of us --

PATRICIA       (grabs the phone)                -- and if you don't get your ass up                here in two shakes and get us out --                     (=すぐに) He hangs up.

JOE  (to Veronica)                Are you all right? VERONICA       It's hot. Joe hands her his handkerchief. CHARLIE        Everyone should jump in the air. PATRICIA       What?

CHARLIE        We jump.  The elevator thinks that                no one is here and it opens. Everyone stares at each other. JOE            One -- two -- three -- They all jump into the air. They all land. Nothing happens. 156   INT. ELEVATOR - A LITTLE LATER                              156    Patricia is sitting on the elevator floor,
polishing her nails. We hear the fire department banging outside... VERONICA       If I ever get out of here, I'm going                to start speaking to my mother.  She                slept with Oscar, and maybe it was                Oscar's fault, I don't know, and                then she sold the story to Inside                Edition.  That could have been Oscar's                idea, too.  Who knows?  But I divorced                him.  I wonder what she's doing right                this minute.  I think of her...                whenever I hear about a new pill.                 Ecstasy, Zoloft, Fenphen, I just                think, I hope Mama knows about that.

Who knows?=わからない、何とも言えない



She takes out a tissue and dabs at her eyes.                            (=軽くたたく)

PATRICIA    Maybe you can make up on Rosie.                 That would be so great for the book. CHARLIE        (trying to figure it out)                If I ever get out of here...
figure it out=どうしたらいいのか考える

PATRICIA    If I ever get out of here, I'm having                my eyes lasered. CHARLIE        I'm marrying Oreet.  I love her.                            
CHARLIE        I should marry her.  I don't know                what's been stopping me. He takes out his wallet and looks at a picture of
Oreet, shows it to Joe. JOE            If I ever get out of here, I'm going                to -- He stops, he looks at Patricia who is fishing
through her purse. PATRICIA       Where is my TicTacs?                     (looks at Joe)                What?



The firemen crowbar open the elevator door.             (=バール、かなてこ)

157   EXT. 79TH STREET BOAT BASIN - NIGHT                         157                           (=マリーナ)

Joe and Brinkley walk out on the dock toward
Joe's boat. Joe is carrying Brinkley's pillow,
his laptop and a suitcase. He boards his boat and goes below.  A light
goes on.  We hear the sound of the computer. JOE (V.O.)     I came home tonight and got into
               the elevator to go to my apartment.
               An hour later, I got out of the
               elevator and Brinkley and I moved
               out. Suddenly everything had become
               clear. 158   INT. BOAT - NIGHT                                           158    A small sleeping area with a berth and a little table,
where Joe's laptop has been hooked up to the phone.


Joe is on the narrow berth, as is Brinkley. JOE            It's a long story.  Full of the                personal details we avoid so                carefully... Joe puts Brinkley on the floor, on his pillow. 
Brinkley jumps back onto the berth with Joe. 159   INT. KATHLEEN'S APARTMENT - DAY                             159    Kathleen is making tea.  She starts toward the
bedroom.  We see her computer, now hooked up
in the living room, where all of Frank's
typewriters used to be.

hook up=接続する

KATHLEEN (V.O.)I wonder whether change isn't a
        kind of infection.  You start with
               one thing -- something you never ever                thought would change and it does --


160   INT. KATHLEEN'S BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS                        160    KATHLEEN    and the next thing you know even                your bed is in a different place. Kathleen enters the bedroom and we see the entire
room has been rearranged. She gets into bed and turns on the television set. 161   EXT. SHOP AROUND THE CORNER - DUSK                          161   
The bookshelves are empty. KATHLEEN       Six months ago, when you and I first                met, I knew everything about myself --                what I would be doing for the rest                of my life and even the person I                would be doing it with.  Now I know                nothing. On the door is a small sign.  "After 42 years, we
are closing our doors.  We have loved being part
of your lives." Kathleen turns out the light in the store and
opens the door. The little bell over the door jingles. Kathleen reaches up on her tiptoes for the bell
and detaches it. Then she comes out of the store, carrying the bell.
Kathleen locks the door and reaches down to operate
the grate for the last time. The grate starts to lower. Kathleen looks at her store, one last time.  Then
she walks off, carrying the bell.  We hear it
jingle in the night. And hold on The Shop Around the Corner, and it
slowly turns into a computer-enhanced version of


And then, suddenly, it vanishes with a poof
leaving an empty screen.

135   INT. KATHLEEN'S APARTMENT - NIGHT                           135   

As she types.  And we cut from her face to the screen as we 
hear a voice-over:

KATHLEEN (V.O.)And as I waited, someone else showed 
               up, a man who has made my professional 
               life a misery, and an amazing thing 
               happened -- I was able, for the first 
               time in my life, to say the exact 
               thing I wanted to say it.  And of 
               course, afterwards, I felt terrible.  
               Just as you said I would.

136   INT. JOE'S APARTMENT - LATER                                136   

The E-mail from Kathleen continues as Joe reads.

KATHLEEN (V.O.)I was cruel, and I'm never cruel.  
               And even though I can hardly believe 
               what I said mattered to this man -- 
               to him, I'm just a bug to be crushed -- 
               but what if it did?  No matter what 
               he's done to me, there's no excuse 
               for my behavior.  Anyway, you are my 
               dear friend, and I so wanted to talk 
               to you.  I hope you have a good reason 
               for not being there last night, but 
               if you don't, and if we never really 
               connect again, I just want to tell 
               you how much it has meant to me to 
               know you were there.


Joe sits there a second. A moment of intense


Then he hits the Menu key and signs off.

sign off=〔テレビ番組などを〕締めくくる、終了する

COMPUTER       Goodbye. Joe stands and leaves the room. The computer sits there. Hold on the computer.  We hear him open the
refrigerator door. We hear him close the
refrigerator door. He passes the den without
even looking into it.  A moment later he comes
back into the room, stares at the computer. 
He starts for the bedroom, changes his mind. 
Circles the computer. (=~の周りをまわる)

He's going to go cold turkey if it kills him.

go cold turkey=きっぱりやめる、完全に断つ  Fuck it. He sits down. Sign on. Starts to type.

JOE (V.O.)   I am in Vancouver. He stops... Hits the delete button and erases the

I couldn't get out of it.  Joe sits there thinking
for a moment.  Then he starts typing.

He clicks the Yes box. Then he starts to type again. JOE (V.O.)

He deletes "for not being there." Then types again, after "to forgive me".

JOE (V.O.) (CONT'D)                -- for what happened.  I feel terrible                that you found yourself in a situation                that caused you additional pain.                 But I'm absolutely sure that whatever                you said last night was provoked,                even deserved.  And everyone says                things they regret when they're                worried or stressed.  You were                expecting to see someone you trusted                and met the enemy instead.  The fault                is mine.

CHRISTINA      Did he say anything about meeting                again? KATHLEEN       Not really.  It doesn't matter.                 We'll just be like George Bernard                Shaw and Mrs. Patrick Campbell and                write letters our whole lives --

CHRISTINA    Where was this taken, Birdie? BIRDIE         Seville.
              (セビリア《スペイン南西部の都市》) KATHLEEN       When you had the thunderbolt? BIRDIE         Yes.  What did you decide, dearie?

KATHLEEN       Close.  We're going to close. CHRISTINA      Close.

KATHLEEN       Although it feels like such a failure.                 It feels like I'm quitting.  It feels                like... Mom...    (=放棄する) She closes her eyes. Birdie sits down on the loveseat next to Kathleen,
puts her arms around her.  Hold on them.

BIRDIE         Keeping the store open doesn't keep                your mother alive, although sometimes                I think we all think it does. Christina looks over at the picture of Birdie. CHRISTINA      Who was it, Birdie?  That you had                the thunderbolt over?

thunderbolt=落雷、(まったく)思いがけない事柄 Birdie shakes her head. She's not going to tell
them. CHRISTINA (CONT'D)                It's so romantic. BIRDIE         But it wasn't meant to be.
CHRISTINA      Why not? BIRDIE         He ran Spain.


CHRISTINA      Spain? BIRDIE         The country.  He ran it.  That was                his job.  And then he died.  Just as                well.

way to a movie.

FRANK          She fell in love with Generalissimo                Franco?
KATHLEEN       Don't say that.  We don't know that                for sure. FRANK          Who else could it have been?  It was                probably around 1960 -- KATHLEEN       I mean, it's not like he was something                normal, like a socialist or an                anarchist or something --

FRANK     It happened in Spain.  People do                really stupid things in foreign                countries. KATHLEEN    Absolutely.  They buy leather jackets,                they go see Flamenco, they ride in                gondolas, they eat in restaurants                where guitarists sing Malaguena sola                Rosa, but they don't fall in love                with fascist dictators.


They enter one of the theatres. 140   INT. THEATER - CONTINUOUS                                   140    As they find seats and sit down. A trailer is playing.


KATHLEEN       Birdie is a very kind person, she's                practically my surrogate mother.                               (=母親代わり)

FRANK     Well she's out of her mind.                           (=正気じゃない、まともじゃない)
KATHLEEN    She is not. FRANK          I could never ever be with anyone                who doesn't take politics as seriously                as I do. The person in front of them turns around.

PERSON IN FRONT OF THEM                Do you mind? FRANK          A hot dog is singing.  You need quiet                while a hot dog is singing? The two of them sit there. KATHLEEN       I have something to tell you.  I                didn't vote. FRANK          What? KATHLEEN       In the last mayoral election, when                Rudy Giuliani was running against                Ruth Messinger, I went to get a                manicure and forgot to vote.

run against=~と対立する

FRANK     Since when do you get manicures? KATHLEEN    Oh, I suppose you could never be                with a woman who gets manicures. FRANK          Forget it.  It's okay.  I forgive                you. PERSON IN FRONT OF THEM                Shhhhhh. KATHLEEN       You forgive me.
Hold on them a beat.

FRANK     Look, this has been a big week, you're                closing the store -- KATHLEEN    It's not that, Frank, really it's                not.  It's just... Frank... FRANK          I know, that was terrible of me. KATHLEEN       What was? FRANK          To jump all over you when I'm the                one who's really...  Oh, God, I don't                know how to say this --

144   INT. COLUMBUS AVENUE RESTAURANT - NIGHT                     144    As Kathleen looks at Frank, waiting for him to begin. FRANK     You're a wonderful person, Kathleen. KATHLEEN    So are you. FRANK          And I'm honored that you want to be                with me because you would never be                with anyone who wasn't truly worthy -- KATHLEEN       I feel exactly the same way about                you.

FRANK          Oh, God, don't say that, please,                that just makes it worse. KATHLEEN       What?                    (he shakes his head)                You don't love me? Frank shakes his head no. KATHLEEN       Me either. FRANK          You don't love me?

KATHLEEN    I think she's a Republican. FRANK          I can't help myself. Kathleen pats him. FRANK (CONT'D) What about you?  Is there someone                else?

telling a customer she's planning to travel,
Christina saying she's finally going to have
to finish her dissertation, George saying he's
been offered a job at Foxbooks but even though
it's okay with Kathleen, he wouldn't work there
if it were the last place on the earth.


There is a frantic, rummage sale atmosphere.


rummage sale=がらくた市

Kathleen, busy at the cash register, looks up
for a minute at her beautiful store being ravaged
by vultures.  We hear the sound of the computer
and hear her voice-over:

ravage=荒らす、破壊する vulture=ハゲワシ、(弱い者を食い物にする)強欲な人間

KATHLEEN (V.O.)My store is closing this week.  I                own a store.  Did I ever tell you                that?  Probably not.  It's a lovely                store -- As a woman dumps a huge stack of books on the
checkout table.
WOMAN SHOPPER  This is a tragedy.                 (yelling across the                     shop to her husband)                Honey, grab a copy of The Trumpet of                the Swan. KATHLEEN (V.O.,CONT'D)                --and in a week,it will be something                really depressing, like a Baby Gap.                 I am being amazingly brave --

Gap=アメリカの最大の衣料品の小売店の一つ WOMAN SHOPPER What are you going to do with                yourself?

KATHLEEN     I don't know.  I'm going to take                some time.  I have a little money                saved.  I'm almost looking forward                to it -- KATHLEEN (V.O.)I am so cheerful I would make                Pollyanna throw up.

SECOND SHOPPER I came here every Saturday when I                was a little girl.  I remember when                your mother gave me Anne of Green                Gables.  "Read it with a box of                Kleenex," that's what she told me. THIRD SHOPPER  She's looking down on you right now. KATHLEEN       I'm sure she is. KATHLEEN (V.O.)I have promised myself I'm not going                to cry. A FORTH SHOPPER approaches the counter with a stack
of books up to his chin, and manages to slide the
stack on the counter. FOURTH SHOPPER We should bomb Foxbooks. KATHLEEN       It's not their fault. The truth is,                the world is just... different. She starts ringing up the sale.

KATHLEEN (V.O.)Soon we'll just be a memory.  In                fact, someone, some foolish person                will probably think it's a tribute                to this city, the way it keeps                changing on you, the way you can
               never count on it, or something.
        I know, because that's the sort of                thing I'm always saying.  But the                truth is, I'm heartbroken.  I feel                as if part of me has died,  and my                mother has died all over again, and                no one can ever make it right.

completely wilted.            (=しおれた)

SALESPERSON    The "Shoe" books?  Who's the author? WOMAN SHOPPER  I don't know.  My friend told me my                daughter has to read the "Shoe" books,                so here I am.

KATHLEEN (CONT'D)(she starts crying as she tells her)                I'd start with Skating Shoes, it's                my favorite, although Ballet Shoes                is completely wonderful. SALESPERSON    Streatfeild.  How do you spell that? KATHLEEN       S-T-R-E-A-T-F-E-I-L-D. WOMAN SHOPPER  Thank you. As she walks away. KATHLEEN       (to herself)                They know nothing, they know                absolutely nothing. ON JOE as he watches her.  We hear the sound of the computer.

Kathleen comes down the street.  She drops the rose in the 
trash can.

130   INT. KATHLEEN'S APARTMENT - A MINUTE LATER                    

Kathleen comes in, drops the book on the table, takes off 
her coat and goes immediately to the computer.  She clicks 
on American Online.  Waits impatiently to connect.  Looks 
with anticipation at the mail box.


Hold on Kathleen as a tear starts down her face.

She takes her handkerchief out of her sleeve and wipes her 
face and blows her nose.  Then looks at her handkerchief and 
tosses it over her shoulder.

She goes over to the bed and turns it down and slips out of 
her shoes.

Then she lies down on the bed, fully clothed.  She reaches 
up to turn out the light.

131   INT. JOE'S APARTMENT - NIGHT                                   

As Joe turns on his closet light and hangs up his jacket.

The computer is on the desk, and the light on it illuminates the room. Patricia is in the next room, eating matzos.


PATRICIA (O.S.)So I said to her, "If you think I                will even talk to you about paying                that kind of advance for an author                whose last book is being used as                trivets all over the world, you are                completely crazy."


On Joe's face, barely bearing.                (=かろうじて耐えている)


As Kevin and Joe walk through the store. KEVIN     But underneath that disagreeable                exterior she could turn out to be --


JOE      A real bitch.  Let's not talk about                it.  I'm going back to the office.                 You must have work to do.

               something terrible and unexpected
               that made it impossible for him --
George walks in.
GEORGE         What happened?

KATHLEEN       He wasn't able to make it,

make it=無事にやり遂げる[実行する]、都合がつく

GEORGE         He stood you up. KATHLEEN       What could have happened? George looks suddenly stricken.
KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                Why didn't he come?  Maybe he showed                up, took one look at me and left.
CHRISTINA      Not possible. KATHLEEN       Maybe there was a subway accident.
CHRISTINA      Absolutely. KATHLEEN       A train was trapped underground with                him inside. CHRISTINA      And no phone. George continues to look stricken.  He's starting
to shake his head. KATHLEEN       Or an automobile accident.  Those                cab drivers are maniacs.                                (=狂人)

CHRISTINA   They hit something and you slam right                into that plastic partition.

KATHLEEN    His elbows could be in splints -- so                he can't really dial --

CHRISTINA      Or he could be in the hospital in                one of those semi-private room with                like --      
(=準個室の) CHRISTINA & KATHLEEN(together)                -- no phone. They look at George.  Still shaking his head. KATHLEEN(to George)                What? George hands them a New York Post.  They look
at the cover: COPS NAB ROOFTOP KILLER      (=逮捕する)                            
KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                What are you saying? GEORGE     It could be. Dead silence. GEORGE (CONT'D)He was arrested two blocks from the                cheesecake place. CHRISTINA      Is there a picture? There it is.  It's of a man with his jacket pulled
over his head. They all look at it. CHRISTINA (CONT'D)                So that explains it. GEORGE         He was in jail. CHRISTINA      And there was a phone -- GEORGE         -- but he got only one call and he                had to use it to call his lawyer. CHRISTINA      You are so lucky.

GEORGE         You could be dead. KATHLEEN       Are you crazy?  This man couldn't                possibly be the rooftop killer. CHRISTINA      Remember when you thought Frank might                be the Unabomber?
Unabomber=《the ~》ユナボマー◆1978~1995年の間に、
          テッド・カジンスキー(Ted Kaczynski)に対して
          and Airline Bomberから。

KATHLEEN       That was different. CHRISTINA      How long did you sit there all alone? KATHLEEN       Not that long.  Joe Fox came in -- CHRISTINA      Joe Fox! KATHLEEN       I don't want to talk about it.                     (closes her eyes)                Let's get to work. They look around.  There's no one in the store and
nothing to do. A pause. KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                There must be something to do.                 There's always something to do. They hear the jingle of the front door.  They look
hopefully toward it.  It's only Birdie. CHRISTINA      He stood her up. Hold on Kathleen as the computer sound begins. KATHLEEN (V.O.)I have been thinking about you.                 Last night I went to meet you and                you weren't there.  I wish I knew                why.  I felt so foolish.

KEVIN          What mice in Cinderella? JOE            Gus-gus and oh shit, I can't remember                the other one.  Why am I compelled                to meet her?  I'm just ruining a                good thing.

KEVIN     You're taking it to the next level.                 I always do that.  I always take a                relationship to the next level, and                if it works okay I take it to the                next level after that, until I can                finally get to the level where it                becomes absolutely necessary for me                to leave. JOE      I'm not going to stay long anyway.                 I already said that, didn't I.                 Christ.  I'm a total wreck.

      AS THEY REACH: 126   EXT. CAFE LALO - CONTINUOUS                                 126    Joe stops and looks at Kevin.
JOE            Kevin, this woman is the most adorable                creature I have ever come in contact                with.  If she turns out to be even                as good-looking as a mailbox, I will                be crazy not to turn my life upside                down and marry her.
turn my life upside down=人生を一変させる
I will be crazy not to~=~しなかったら気が狂って

KEVIN     She could be a real dog.                (=ひどい代物) JOE      (a total panic)                You go look.                                         KEVIN     Me?
JOE      Just go to the window and check her                out. KEVIN     You're pathetic.

Kevin goes to the window and looks inside. 127   EXT. CAFE LALO - NIGHT                                      127    Joe and Kevin in front. Kevin looks in the window. JOE      See her? KEVIN     There's a beautiful, whoa, a very                beautiful girl.

JOE            Yes.
KEVIN          But no book.  Let me see, let me                see...  Wait a minute.  There's a                book with a flower, so it must be                her.

let me see=ええっと

JOE            What does she look like?

KEVIN          There's a waiter blocking, I can't                see her face.  He's serving her a                cup of tea and she's putting in three                spoonfuls of sugar -- JOE            Well, why shouldn't she? KEVIN          No reason.  Unless she has                hypoglycemia.  Oh, he's moving.

JOE            Can you see her?

KEVIN     Yes. JOE      And? -- KEVIN     (clearly frustrated)                She's very pretty. JOE      She is.  I knew she would be.  She                had to be. KEVIN     She looks... I would say she has a                little of the coloring of that                Kathleen Kelly person. JOE      Kathleen Kelly of the bookstore. KEVIN     Why not?  You said you thought she                was attractive.

Why not=もちろんさ。

JOE      So what?  Who cares about Kathleen                Kelly?

So what?=それがどうした?
Who cares=知ったことではない、どうでもよい、知るか

KEVIN     Well, if you don't like Kathleen                Kelly, I can tell you right now you                ain't gonna like this girl.
ain't=are not
gonna=going to

JOE            Why not? KEVIN          Because it is Kathleen Kelly. Joe elbows Kevin aside and looks.     (=人を肘で押しのける)                            
JOE      Oh, God.
A long beat. KEVIN     What are you going to do? JOE      Nothing. KEVIN          You're going to let her just wait                there? JOE            Yes.  Yes I am.  That's exactly what                I'm going to do.  Why not? KEVIN          But she wrote the letters.
JOE            Good night, Kevin.  I'll see you                tomorrow. He walks away, leaving Kevin. Kevin stares after him.  Then he walks away in the other direction. 128   INT. CAFE LALO - CONTINUOUS                                 128    Kathleen, sitting alone, at a table for two, is drinking her tea.  She's starting to feel a little foolish.  She checks her watch. A loud, boisterous group comes in and sits at the table next to hers.  They're laughing.  A man from the group grabs the empty chair at Kathleen's table.

MAN            Do you mind?
Kathleen jumps up. KATHLEEN       Oh, yes.  I'm expecting someone.                 Please. She takes the chair back.  Sits down again.  She watches the group as they playfully fight over the menus.

take back=元の位置に戻す

She checks her watch again.  Then she opens her copy of Pride and Prejudice and looks at it.  She can't focus. A man comes into the restaurant and she looks up hopefully at him.  But he's going to meet another group of people. As he passes her table, he knocks the book and the flower onto the floor.
KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                Oh!

She jumps up and rescues the book and flower as if they were precious china. In the window, now, behind her, Joe appears.  He watches, as she rearranges the book and the flower. He disappears from sight. A beat... He walks in the door. JOE      Kathleen Kelly.  Hello.  What a                coincidence.  Mind if I sit down? KATHLEEN    Yes I do.  I'm expecting someone. Joe picks up her book, looks at it. JOE            Pride and Prejudice. Kathleen grabs it back. KATHLEEN   
  Do you mind?

She places it back on the table, puts the rose into it. JOE      I didn't know you were a Jane Austen                fan.  Not that it's a surprise.  I                bet you read it every year.  I bet                you just love Mr. Darcy, and that                your sentimental heart beats wildly                at the thought that he and whatever                her name is are really, honestly and                truly going to end up together.

KATHLEEN    Would you please leave? Joe sits down. KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                Please? JOE            I'll get up as soon as your friend                comes.  Is he late? KATHLEEN       The heroine of Pride and Prejudice                is Elizabeth Bennet and she's one of                the greatest, most complex characters                ever written, not that you would                know. JOE            As a matter of fact I've read it.
KATHLEEN       Well, good for you. JOE            I think you'd discover a lot of things                if you really knew me. KATHLEEN       If I really knew you, I know what I                would find -- instead of a brain, a                cash register, instead of a heart, a                bottom line.

bottom line=(決算書の)最後の行、収支決算、(計上された)純益、損失

Kathleen is shocked at herself. JOE            What is it? KATHLEEN       I just had a breakthrough, and I                have to thank you for it.  For the                first time in my life, when confronted                with a horrible, insensitive person                I actually knew what I wanted to say                and I said it.

JOE      I think you have a gift for it.  It                was a splendid mixture of poetry and                meanness.


KATHLEEN       Meanness?  Let me tell you -- JOE            Don't misunderstand me, I'm just                paying you a compliment.


He lifts the book off the table.  Kathleen grabs for it. KATHLEEN    Why are you doing this? She manages to get the book, leaving Joe with the rose.

JOE            What have we have?  A red, no, crimson                rose, tucked into the pages.                 Something you read about in a book,                no doubt.  One of those books with a                lady in a nightgown on the cover                about to throw herself off a cliff.

She holds her hand out for it. KATHLEEN       Give it to me. Joe puts it between his mouth and his nose like a mustache. JOE            It's a joke to you, isn't it?                 Everything's a joke to you. She grabs the rose.  Puts it back in the book. KATHLEEN       Please leave.  I beg you. He stands up, walks from the table, sits down at the very next table, with his back to her. The door to the restaurant opens.  Kathleen looks at it hopefully.  A pleasant looking man, who's immediately
joined by a pleasant looking woman.
For a moment, Kathleen looks just a little droopy,as if
the wind has just gone out of her sails.  She takes out
her compact, looks into her mirror.  She slides it over
to look behind her, at him, just as he's looking sideways
at her. He turns away suddenly.


Then she blots her lipstick with her handkerchief.


JOE            You know what the handkerchief reminds                me of?  The first day I met you -- KATHLEEN       The first day you lied to me -- JOE            I didn't lie to you -- KATHLEEN       You did too --

JOE            I did not --

KATHLEEN       I thought all that Fox stuff was so                charming.  F-O-X. JOE            I never lied about it -- KATHLEEN       "Joe.  Just call me Joe."  As if you                were one of those stupid 22-year-old                girls with no last name.  "Hi, I'm                Kimberley."  "Hi, I'm Janice."  What's                wrong with them?  Don't they know                you're supposed to have last names?                 It's like they're a whole generation

               of cocktail waitresses.

a whole generation=〔ある〕世代全ての人
cocktail waitress=〈米〉バーのホステス

She stops herself -- it's a tangent she never meant
to go off on.  But Joe has stood up and seated himself
back at her table.

go off on=(人)に怒りをぶつける[腹を立てる]

JOE      I am not a stupid 22-year-old girl -- KATHLEEN    That's not what I meant -- JOE            And when I said the thing about the                Price Club and cans of olive oil,                that wasn't what I meant either --

Price Club=プライスクラブ:米国の The Price Co. が

KATHLEEN       Oh, you poor sad multimillionaire.                 I feel so sorry for you.


The door opens and a large and very attractive
TRANSVESTITE in a boa comes in the door.


JOE            I am going to take a wild guess that                this isn't him, either.  Who is he,                I wonder.  Not, I gather, the world's                greatest living expert on Julius and                Ethel Rosenberg, but someone else                entirely.  Will you be you be mean                to him too?  Will you start out sweet                as sugar candy and then suddenly,                miraculously, like a bolt from the                blue, find that sharp little tongue                of yours?
wild guess=おおざっぱな推測                                                      (CONTINUED) gather=〔that以下だと〕推測[推量]する
Julius and Ethel Rosenberg

start out=~し始める
bolt from the blue=青天のへきれき

KATHLEEN       No, I won't.  Because the man who's                coming here tonight is completely                unlike you.  The man who is coming                here is kind and funny -- he has the                most wonderful sense of humor -- JOE            But he's not here.
KATHLEEN       If he's not here, he has a reason,                because there is not a cruel or                careless bone in his body.  I can't                expect you to know anything about a                person like that.  You've nothing                but a suit.                      (=スーツ)

A beat.  Joe gets up. JOE            That is my cue.  Good night.

Joe leaves.

As we see Kathleen flip the open sign to closed.

118   INT. SHOP AROUND THE CORNER - DUSK                          118   

George is talking to Kathleen and Birdie, who is toting 
up the week's receipts.

GEORGE     And I can't decide whether to put                sausages into the meat sauce or just                chopped meat.  Last time I made it,                Detective Carter and I never even                sat down to dinner because --                (he makes some sort of hand gesture                 indicating that sex prevented them from                 dining)                -- and last night, I made margaritas                in the blender, and I took the ice                cube and --

Detective Carter=テレビドラマに出てきた黒人の女性刑事の


BIRDIE         Spare us.                (=~を勘弁する) George goes out the door. Birdie looks at Kathleen. KATHLEEN       Don't tell me.  Not the slightest                difference? Birdie can't bring herself to answer. KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                How could that be?  All this publicity                and not one bit of difference?  Oh                Birdie, what am I going to do?  What                would Mom have done?


BIRDIE         Let's ask her. She opens the locket hanging around her neck.  There's a
picture of Kathleen's mother inside it.  Birdie holds the
locket up to her face. BIRDIE (CONT'D)                Cecilia, what should we do?

Birdie holds the locket to her ear and listens.  A pause. KATHLEEN       Birdie?
BIRDIE         Shhhh.                (after a beat, shrugs)                She has no idea, but she thinks the                window display is lovely.  Good night                dearie. Birdie smiles and picks up her shopping bag, goes out the
door. 119   EXT. SHOP AROUND THE CORNER - NIGHT                         119    It's starting to rain.  Kathleen lowers the grate over the
store.  As she turns to walk away, William Spungeon steps
in her path out of the shadows. KATHLEEN       Oh my goodness, hello.  What are you                doing here.
SPUNGEON       Loitering.  Lurking.  Skulking.                 Stalking.


He laughs.  So does she.  Dramatically, he whips out an umbrella and opens it over the two of them. SPUNGEON (CONT'D)                You look very beautiful. KATHLEEN    Thank you.  But I'm a wreck.                                     

He touches her cheek suddenly.  Kathleen starts.  Then
he blows on his hand.    (=息を吹きかける)

SPUNGEON    An eyelash.  It's gone. Kathleen relaxes.  They start walking. KATHLEEN       Are you writing another book? SPUNGEON       I'm in the home stretch.  I'll be                done in approximately six more years.
in the homestretch=〔仕事などの〕最終段階[最後の追い込み]
KATHLEEN       Should I discount? SPUNGEON    It's about a man on a quest for                knowledge who meets a woman he cannot                resist.


KATHLEEN       If I discount I have to fire someone                because I can't discount with this                overhead but whom could I fire?  I                couldn't fire anyone.


Spungeon suddenly puts his hand through Kathleen's hair.  She stops, frozen in place. SPUNGEON       You have your mother's hair.  Thick,                wild, the color of Nebraska wheat. He grabs her and tries to kiss her.
KATHLEEN       What are you doing?  Let me go. He backs her into a wall. KATHLEEN (CONT'D)                Stop it.  Are you crazy? She kicks him in the shins, wiggles free and runs away.

SPUNGEON(calling after her)                If you change your mind, you can E-                mail me.  Hermit@AOL.com. 120   INT. COMPUTER SCREEN - NIGHT                                120    The mail form says "To:" and Kathleen types in "NY 152". The form says "Re:" and Kathleen types in:  "Advice" 121   EXT. KATHLEEN'S APARTMENT - NIGHT                           121    Rain is falling. KATHLEEN (V.O.)                I need help.  Do you still want to                meet me? 122   EXT. JOE'S APARTMENT - NIGHT                                122    Rain is falling. We hear the sound of the computer. JOE (V.O.)     "Where?  When?" 123   INT. NUT SHOP OF BROADWAY - DAY                             123    George, Kathleen and Christina in the shop.  Kathleen is buying more lollipops. KATHLEEN       We're meeting in a public place. CHRISTINA      Well don't go anywhere with him.                 Don't even go out to the street with                him afterwards.  Get a dial cab to                just sit there and wait for you.


GEORGE     Did you tell Frank? KATHLEEN       There's nothing to tell. CHRISTINA      But did you tell him? KATHLEEN       He's away.  At the 32nd anniversary                of the Chicago Seven trial.

Chicago Seven=シカゴ・セブン、シカゴの7人◆1968年シカゴの
       (Chicago Eight)のうち法廷侮辱罪で有罪になった

GEORGE     And he's gone to a place where there                are no phones.  Do you even know                this guy's name? Kathleen shakes her head no. CHRISTINA      And you're going to meet him in a                bar?
KATHLEEN       Not a bar.  That place on 83rd with                the cheesecake.

GEORGE         And he will wear a flower in his                lapel, and you will be carrying a                copy of Anna Karenina with a rose in                it.


No answer. CHRISTINA      Oh God, no. KATHLEEN       Not Anna Karenina.  Pride and                Prejudice.

105   INT. THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER - DAY                       105   

It's January.  The store is more crowded than 
we've seen it. Frank is there with several copies of the Independent.
The phone is ringing off the hook.  Christina and
George are fielding calls.  Birdie is reading Frank's

off the hook=〔固定電話機の受話器などが〕外れて

BIRDIE   (reading)            "Kathleen Kelly and her mother Cecilia             Kelly have raised your children.  If             this precious resource is killed by             the cold cash cow of Foxbooks, it             will not only be the end of Western             civilization as we know it, but the             end of something even dearer: our             neighborhood as we know it.  Save             the Shop Around the Corner and you             will save your own soul."  Frank,             that's charming.

cash cow=お金を産む牛、金になる乳牛、〔企業の〕もうかる

You think it's a little over the top?

BIRDIE  Just say thank you. FRANK    Thank you. CHRISTINA(calling to Kathleen)              Channel 2's outside. 106   INT. BACK ROOM - THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER -

Kathleen is primping in a tiny wall mirror.  She
takes a deep breath.


KATHLEEN     In a second.
GEORGE   (from the other room)             The Village Voice is coming.

KATHLEEN   Omigod. Frank sticks his head in. FRANK     (in shock)           It's him. KATHLEEN     Who? FRANK     God. It is God. 107   INT. SHOP AROUND THE CORNER - CONTINUOUS                    107    Kathleen comes out of the storage room. William Spungeon is standing there. WILLIAM SPUNGEON              I'm William Spungeon.
KATHLEEN     I'm very pleased to meet you.  I'm              Kathleen Kelly. Frank is practically levitating.


SPUNGEON   I knew your mother.  Although she               knew me only as W.  That enormous               bookstore is obscene. obscene=

FRANK     I'm Frank Navasky.  I carry your           picture in my wallet. He pulls it out.  Spungeon looks at him like he's
crazy. KATHLEEN     We've organized pickets.  Channel 13              is doing a special. SPUNGEON     I'd be glad to talk to the press if              it's all right with you.  They've              been trying to interview me for years. FRANK      The press?  I'm the press.
the press=新聞、雑誌、報道陣

KATHLEEN       You'd allow that?  For me?  For the                store?  That's incredible.  Although                you wouldn't have to be photographed.                 I respect that.  If it's television,                they could just put one of those                blurry dots in front of your face.


SPUNGEON    No television. CHRISTINA      (referring to the TV crew)                They're waiting for you --

FRANK      I know all your books.  Phaelox the            gnome, the little man who comes from            nowhere... and is going nowhere...            (quoting)            "Where did you come from?"  "Nowhere."            "Where are you going?"  "Nowhere."


SPUNGEON       Cool it.  I'm starting to break out                in hives.                     (to Kathleen)                Here's my phone number.

break out in hives=蕁麻疹が出る

KATHLEEN    I had no idea William Spungeon had a                phone. SPUNGEON       Adios. He gives a little wave and leaves.

give a wave=手を振る

FRANK   This is historic.            (beat)            Do you realize what I've done?  By            writing that piece, do you realize?             I've brought William Spungeon in            from the cold. Holy shit.  I am            completely amazing.

KATHLEEN     They have to have discounts and              lattes, because most of the people              who work there have never read a              book.

      エスプレッソコーヒー And pull back now to reveal that we're in:

110   INT. GYM - NIGHT                                            110    Five TV sets are on, over adjoining treadmills,
Joe and Kevin are on two of the treadmills, walking
and watching.

JOE     She's not as nice as she seems on television. KEVIN     You've met her? JOE     She's kind of a pill.


KEVIN      She's probably not as attractive as            she seems on television either.

JOE     No, she's beautiful.  But a pill. KEVIN      So you don't feel bad about basically            destroying her livelihood not to            mention her legacy not to mention            her raison d'etre. livelihood=
not to mention=
raison d'etre=〈フランス語〉レーゾンデートル、存在理由

It's not personal -- KEVIN    It's business. JOE      Right.  Exactly. They look up at the television. 111   INT. TELEVISION SCREEN - CONTINUOUS                         111    Joe onscreen, with a super: Joe Fox, Vice-President


JOE      I sell cheap books.  Sue me.  I sell          cheap books, and as a result -- listen          to this, because it's really bad -          more people can buy books.


The show immediately cuts back to the newscaster. On Joe and Kevin. KEVIN      That's what you said? JOE     (outraged)         That's not all I said.  I said -- I         can't believe those bastards -- I         said we were great, I said people         can come and sit and read for hours         and no one bothers them, I said we         stock 150,000 titles, I showed them         the New York City section.  I said         we were a goddamn piazza where people         could mingle and mix and be.

goddamn=[強意語として] 《口語》 ばかに,とても piazza=〔特にイタリアの都市の〕広場

KEVIN     A piazza?

JOE      I was eloquent.  Shit.  It's just          inevitable, isn't it?  People are          going to want to turn her into Joan          of Arc --

Joan of Arc=ジャンヌ・ダルク

KEVIN   -- and you into Attila the Hun.
Attila the Hun=アッティラ大王◆中央アジアの

JOE   Well it's not me personally, it's          more like it's the company -- KATHLEEN(on the television)                And I have to say, I have met Joe                Fox, who owns Foxbooks, and I have                heard him compared his store to a                Price Club and the books in it to                cans of olive oil.

Price Club=プライスクラブ、
米国の The Price Co.

On Joe, reacting. 112   EXT. SHOP AROUND THE CORNER                                 112    A small rally is taking place, with picket signs. 
Kathleen is standing on a small speaker's platform,
along with the Borough President.

Borough President=区長(Borough President,非公式の略称は

KATHLEEN       My mother used to say to me that                every book you sell is a gift from                the heart... 113   EXT. FOXBOOKS - DAY                                         113    As 20 CHILDREN march in front of the store, holding
little makeshift picket signs and singing songs.
"One, two, three, four, we don't want this Superstore."


Customers go right through the line and into the store.

114   INT. FOXBOOKS SUPERSTORE - DAY                              114    We can hear the pickets marching and singing outside--
although the store is full of customers anyway. The
Fox men -- Joe, Nelson and Schuyler -- are sitting in
the cafe.

Nelson is holding a copy of a weekly newspaper, which
has the old high-school yearbook picture of William
Spungeon on the front page and a headline: William
Spungeon Emerges from Hiding to Support Bookstore.

SCHUYLER      Who is this Spungeon anyway? JOE      He's a writer. NELSON      Well, I've never heard of him.  And             neither has anyone else in this place. 115   INT. TV SET - NIGHT                                         115    As we see SIDNEY-ANN STRONGIN, a young and attractive
PBS talk show hostess for a show called Inside Media. SIDNEY-ANN     The New York Literary world was                shocked this week when William                Spungeon, the most famously reclusive                author since J.D. Salinger, announced                that he was coming out of hiding                because of his loyalty to a small                children's bookstore on the West                Side of Manhattan.  Discussing this                tonight is a man I happen to think                of as one of this city's most                underappreciated assets, Frank                Navasky.

J.D. Salinger=ジェローム・デイヴィッド・サリンジャー


FRANK      Thank you.

SIDNEY-ANN     This all happened because of you,                didn't it -- FRANK      Well, I knew William Spungeon loved            children's books so I wrote a provocative
           column --


SIDNEY-ANN   Your specialty.                     (=専門、本職、得意)

Frank laughs.  Sidney-Ann laughs. FRANK      And it kind of smoked him out.

As she and Frank watch the television show.
FRANK ON TELEVISION                Technologically speaking, the world's                out of hand.  Take the VCR.  The                whole idea of a VCR is that it makes                it possible for you to tape what's                on television while you're out of                the house.  But the whole point of                being out of the house is so you can                miss what's on television.  Radio.                 Now there's a medium I can get behind.

out of hand=手に負えなくて
get behind=~を後援[支持]する

SIDNEY-ANN ON TELEVISION                Well, we're on television... and                you're good at it. FRANK ON TELEVISION                Thank you. Another little moment between them. SIDNEY-ANN ON TELEVISION                The bookstore.  Tell us about it. FRANK ON TELEVISION                Are you planning to collect radios? SIDNEY-ANN ON TELEVISION                Do you think I should?
FRANK ON TELEVISION                The Shop Around the Corner is a true                New York treasure. SIDNEY-ANN ON TELEVISION                As are you.  I'd love to have you                back. FRANK ON TELEVISION                Any time.  Are we done? SIDNEY-ANN ON TELEVISION                Not at all.
FRANK ON TELEVISION                Because I just want to say that the                only show I do watch is yours. KATHLEEN    (appalled)
               (=がくぜんとする)                Omigod. FRANK     Hey, I was just being polite.  Okay,                I admit, I slobbered all over her. slobber=よだれを垂らす、だらしなくやる

The show continues.
