I just want to be able to make my own decision.Philip: You're a real Stewart!Robbie: And if I think about it long enough, you never know …Philip: Never know what?Robbie: If I make my own decision, I might choose Michigan.Philip: Robbie, you're something! You know, when I was your age, I said exactly the same thing to Grandpa.

【语言点精讲】

1. Well, I wasn't clear about my future, but I knew engineering was not for me. 嗯,我当时对自己的未来也不很清楚,但我知道我不该学工程。be clear about: 对…清楚,关于…很明白。not for me: 这里指“某事不适合我”。

2. I suppose you want to apply to Columbia. 我猜想你想申请上哥伦比亚大学。I suppose : 我猜,我认为,我推想。apply to: 正式申请,向…要求

3. You're a real Stewart! a real Stewart: 真是Stewart家的人。Philip是指Robbie有自己的主见。从这点来讲,他和Stewart家的人具有同样的个性。

4. And if I think about it long enough, you never know …再说,如果我考虑的时间够长的话,说不定……you never know: 说不定,说不准。

5. You're something! 你真了不起!something 在 you're something 中,表示某种了不起的给人以深刻印象的物或人。

6. You know, when I was your age, I said exactly the same thing to Grandpa. When I was your age: 当年我像你这么大的时候。I said exactly the same thing: 我说的话跟你现在的一模一样。
