Edward Perriman Cole died in May.
It was a Sunday afternoon, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
It's difficult to understand the sum of a person's life.
Some people will tell you it's measured by the ones left behind.
Some believe it can be measured in faith.
Some say by love.
Other folks say life has no meaning at all.
I believe that you measure yourself
by the people who measured themselves by you.
What I can tell you for sure is that, by any measure
Edward Cole lived more in his last days on Earth
than most people manage to wring out of a lifetime.
I know that when he died, his eyes were closed
and his heart was open.
" Name the five presidents whose last names begin with the letter H."
Warren G. Harding, Rutherford B. Hayes, Herbert Hoover
华伦·吉·哈丁 罗斯福·彼·海耶斯 赫伯特·胡弗
and the two Harrisons, Benjamin and William Henry.
Thought I'd get you with the double Harrisons.
Ha-ha-ha. -You're sick, you know?
You think that's sick, can you name their wives?
-No. -Neither can I.
Yo, Cartey-car! -Yo!
-When they need the Camaro, man? -Yesterday.
-All right, I got one for you. -All right.
-行啦 我又找到一个难题 -好吧
Who invented the radio?
-What do you know, I finally got you. -No.
-你知道吗 我终于难住你了 -我不是这个意思
I don't know if you want who they think invented the radio
or the person who actually invented the radio.
Well, in here it says
Yeah, it ain't him?
He's the one they generally think invented the radio.
In fact, he got a Nobel Prize for it in 1909.
Truth is a guy named Nikola Tesla
patented the basic idea for the radio in 1896.
Same idea Marconi used for his patent several years later.
Tesla fought Marconi till the day he died in 1943.
Same year the Supreme Court ruled
that Marconi's patent was invalid
recognizing Tesla as the inventor of the radio.
You really are sick.
Well, good. About time. What did they say?
好吧 那时间呢 他们怎么说
All right, what does that mean?
Kopi Luwak. The rarest beverage in the world.
Uh, Mr. Cole, the board is ready to hear your proposal.
Hold on just a second.
Do you know what a Philistine is, Jim?
Sir, it's Richard.
That's right, Phil. Give them the spiel.
好吧 真是没药救了 开讲吧
Thank you, Mr. Chairman, fellow supervisors.
We at the Cole Group feel the decline of the Winwood Hospital
is a direct result of significant fiscal mismanagement.
-I beg your pardon, this hospital -Overhead costs are nearly double.
-您是说 这间医院 -医院的支出超出了预算
Your lease and land costs were similarly overbid.
Donations have atrophied to the point you've fallen far behind the curve
in Research, Pediatrics, Oncology and MRI.
医学研究方面 儿科 肿瘤科 以及核磁共振的预算
The Cole Group has privatized 15 public hospitals in seven years
each of which now provides, or will soon provide
the highest standard of medical care to their communities.
-Despite being grossly understaffed? -The better the doctor, the need
What about beds? There are rumors
you increased the number of patients to the point of overpopulation.
Patient density has always been
And your emergency rooms, I mean, they are known
而你们的急诊室 我是说 他们
I run hospitals, not health spas.
Two beds to a room, no exceptions.
Look, I passed up a lunch with Michelle Pfeiffer to be here
so can we desist from all of this inane posturing?
Boys and girls, you need me.
I do not need you.
Now, there's a sizeable check in this envelope
let me know if you decide to cash it.
Mr. Cole, are you all right?
What are you doing here?
Oh, you know, fighting for my life. You?
天知道 垂死挣扎吧 你呢
Uh, no, I was just surprised
and I don't care about the insurance!
And tell Dr. Shit-for-Brains
I wanna know everything about this bleomycin drip he wants to get me on.
I hear it eats your lungs.
When I address Congress next month
I don't want to do it breathing through a hole in my throat.
-That's not exactly what happens. -Who the hell is this guy?
-其实也不完全是这样 -该死的 那家伙到哪去了
-Where's Thomas? Tom! -In plain view, sir.
-托马斯呢 汤姆 -在这儿呢 先生
-Hi, Tom. -We're gonna move you into the bed.
I can do it myself. I ain't dead yet.
Have I fired you lately?
Not since the Oprah incident.
-That was a good one. Ha-ha-ha. -Yeah, it's good stuff.
-那还不错 -是啊 真不错
Who the hell is that?
Who the hell are you?
He said, "Who the hell?"
Oh, God. What am I, in the morgue?
噢老天 我这是算啥 在太平间里
That was the first time I laid eyes on Edward Cole.
An inauspicious beginning, to be sure.
Oh, spare me. Sweet Jesus.
噢 可怜可怜我吧 老天
I hate these I hate tubes!
I'll be damned if I'm gonna spend the next three weeks laying next to this guy.
Zombie boy. Looks half-dead already.
You can't have your own room. It would create an enormous PR problem.
I don't give a shit about PR.
I want my own room. It's my hospital, for chrissake.
我就是要单人间 这可是我自己的医院 老天爷
Don't tell me I can't have my own room.
No offense, pal.
You have publicly defended this policy countless times.
You run hospitals, not health spas. Two beds to a room, no exceptions.
你开的不是疗养院而是医院 一间房两张床 绝无例外
I've never been sick before.
Okay, Dr. Eldridge will be in in a minute to dot you up, okay?
好啦 艾尔德利杰医生一会儿回来看护你的 行了吧
don't let me wake up paralyzed.
I'll do what I can.
This really your hospital?
Might wanna do something about the pea soup.
By the morning of the surgery
the cancer had spread so far throughout Edward's body
that the doctors gave him only a 5 percent chance to survive
but then, they didn't account for how pissed off they'd made him.
No visitors come in to see him?
He's been sleeping a lot since they brought him back.
That's another reason I don't miss nursing.
It's always so sad seeing a patient like that, all alone
after that kind of surgery.
At least he's quiet.
Day after day, out of sight, and almost out of
日复一日 游离在我们的视线之外 几乎一直是这样
Rachel called this morning.
Really? How's she doing?
She's auditioning for first violin in next semester's symphony.
Need any more books?
Got your meds for the night?
Mm-hm. I already took them.
How about pillows?
I'm fine, Virginia, really. Thank you.
我很好 弗吉妮娅 真的 谢谢你
You know, I could stay a while if you want me to.
No use both of us being useless in the morning, right?
As something of a public health expert
I believe more people die from visitors
"It's the Berries," for 600.
This Swedish berry is also known as the cowberry.
-What is a lingonberry? -Uh, what is a lingonberry?
-什么是林肯浆果 -嗯 什么是林肯浆果
Correct! -"It's the Berries," for 800.
回答正确 -下一题 这次是八百美元
In a Top 40 hit of 1956, this "Berry" told Beethoven to roll over.
Who is Chuck Berry?
Who is Chuck Berry? -Yes.
-What is the Mariana Trench? -What is the Mariana Trench?
Good morning, Edward.
-Morning. -How you feeling?
How's that catheter?
Don't know how I ever did without it.
Ah, humor is a good sign.
As is surliness. It's one of your favorite flavors, right?
-Yeah. -Let's see what we got here.
All right, so the operation went well, okay?
好吧 手术很顺利 明白吗
All the post-op brain scans are clean.
Now we go after the sarcoma in the rest of your body.
Now, unfortunately, your blood markers are extremely high
so I would like to begin chemo this morning.
Love the smell of chemo in the morning.
Apocalypse Now, right?
Makes me feel like victory!
-I'll check in with you later. -All right.
You think you could just take a look at?
-Sorry, I'm late. Who's your doctor? -He's Dr. Gibian.
-抱歉我赶时间 你的主治医生是 -吉本医生
I'll let the nurse know.
Bitch, ain't it?
-What are quarks? -What are quarks?
-How long you been here? -Oh.
In and out over the past few months. Got me on an experimental treatment.
-What is the quadratic equation? -What is the quadratic equation?
If you don't mind around-the-clock vomiting
watching your veins turn black
and feeling like your bones are made of napalm
it's a day at the beach.
Of course, I hear people react to it differently.
You'll know by tonight.
you don't mind my asking
what is that contraption you got over there?
It's a siphon. Makes coffee.
What else does it do?
What else does it have to do?
Did you know that coffee was originally discovered by a shepherd in Ethiopia?
-You don't say. -It's true.
Seems his goats were eating berries from an unfamiliar bush.
Before long, they were running and jumping all over
having a gay old time.
So the shepherd took some of the branches to the local monastery
where the abbots decided to roast them.
When the berries burned
the beans inside gave off such a pleasant aroma
they brewed them into a stew.
And over the next few hundred years, it spread to Arabia, Europe
之后过了好几百年 传到了阿拉伯 欧洲
even Sumatra, like that hooch you got over there.
It's called Kopi Luwak.
I know what it's called.
Never catch me drinking that shit.
Have you ever tried it?
No. I'm more of a instant-coffee man.
Here, here we are.
-Thanks. -No problem.
You always had those freckles?
Okay, we got prosciutto and melons, some burrata mozzarella
好吧 我们有小牛肉 一点儿水果
and a veal paillard.
The folks at Toscana send their best.
You sure you wanna eat all that?
You want Thomas to make you a plate?
Tommy, uh, fix a plate for, uh
汤米 添一盘给 那个
So you want, uh? Might cheer you up.
No, thanks, I'll pass.
不 谢谢 我不要了
It ain't the best in L.A. no more.
Maya made the honor roll again.
Bet your ass she did.
Somewhere, some lucky guy's having a heart attack.
Don't pay any attention to me. I'm just, uh, talking to myself.
Says he wants to be a mechanic like his granddad when he grows up.
I hope you talked him out of that.
What do we got here?
It's a Shelby 350.
-I always wanted one of those. -Yeah.
-Kai remembered. -Hmm.
Mom seems to think you're not getting enough rest.
She loves you, Pop.
You'll, uh, call us when you get your test results, huh?
If that day ever comes.
-Take care. -Okay.
-Roger's a tax attorney. -Oh.
His brother, Lee, is an engineer.
Who's the pretty little lady?
That's Rachel. Youngest of the three.
Big age difference.
Yeah, well, she was a surprise.
是啊 怎么说呢 她是意外降临的
We'd hardly gotten the boys out of the house when she came along.
She's an outstanding violinist.
-Never stayed married long enough. -Oh, well
-婚姻都是不长久的 -噢 好吧
don't worry, I've been married long enough for the both of us.
How's that going?
Well, that's why they invented light switches.
Don't get me wrong, I loved being married, been there four times.
别误会 我还是想结婚的 之前结过四次
Problem is I love being single too.
Hard to do them both at the same time.
Well, nobody's perfect.
Only successful marriage I had was me and my work.
I started making money when I was 16
and that was that.
I wanted to be a history professor.
I made it through two months of City College
before Virginia gave me the news.
And then, you know
young, black, broke, baby on the way
又年轻 又是黑人 还是个穷光蛋 又有了孩子
Take the first decent job that comes along.
I always meant to go back
but 45 years goes by pretty fast.
Like smoke through a keyhole.
Don't give me the morphine while I'm sleeping. It's a waste.
Maybe she's trying to kill us both. You ever think of that?
What are you, the devil?
What if I lost my mind already?
No. No, no Jesus, this is not praying.
I'm talking to myself out loud, that's
You ever think about suicide?
Suicide? Me? -Yeah.
-自杀 我 -是啊
Thought so. Stage one.
The five stages, but
Then anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.
接着说愤怒 抵抗 抑郁 最终自我认同
So of course you're not thinking of suicide.
You're in stage one. Denial.
What stage are you in?
And thinking about suicide.
Yeah, okay. It's just a frame of
Well, it looks like you won't be needing this anymore.
-That's it? -Yep, fourth and final.
-就这样 -好 第四个也就是最后一个疗程
They have to run all the tests first, see where we stand.
-Well, how long? -Takes a while.
I'll get Dr. Gibian to schedule them when I see him.
I'm on for another hour, anything you need?
Clean bill of health if you got one.
Hang in there, Carter.
That's what I do.
And line to center, base hit
Kent will have to play it on three bounces
and Alou will score. The throw goes to the back
Hit the cutoff man, for crying out loud.
that's the problem with the game today:
Did you ever read The Time of Your Life?
-William Saroyan. -Yeah.
"No foundation. All the way down the line. "
When we were growing up What are you doing?
Nothing. Just scribbling.
Oh, sure, that's what you wanna do
bounce a slider with a man on third.
These kids today, they
Earphones. I'm talking to myself, again.
How's it going there?
I got the test back.
I'll just lay it out, huh?
A year if we're lucky.
There is an experimental program that we've been conducting
and I don't wanna get your hopes up
but I think you would be an excellent candidate
You're blocking my view.
Anyway, if there's any questions
day or night, you know where to find me.
Carter, you wanna ask Dr. Hollins something?
I mean, I'm not familiar with Mr. Chambers'
Well, get familiar.
I just wanted to know how I stand, that's all.
Sure. How about I'll go take a look at your chart, okay?
好吧 我会去看看你的报告的 如何
There was a survey once.
A thousand people were asked, if they could know in advance
would they want to know the exact day of their death.
Ninety-six percent of them said no.
I always kind of leaned toward the other 4 percent.
I thought it would be liberating
knowing how much time you had left to work with.
It turns out, it's not.
We're pretty much out of options.
You want to play cards?
Thought you'd never ask.
call Marie at Christie's.
Tell her I won't be bidding this season.
Uh, sir, I don't mean to sound indelicate
那个 先生 我无意冒犯
but how do you want me to handle your?
Treat it as if it were your own.
So leave all the money to my assistant?
Go get me one of those almond croissants that I like.
And don't buy any green bananas.
-What are you doing? -What is this?
-Come on, give it back. -What is it?
It was on the floor. I didn't know it was a state secret.
Well, my freshman philosophy professor
assigned this exercise in forward thinking.
He called it a "Bucket List. "
We were supposed to make a list of things we wanted to do in our lives
before we -Kicked the bucket.
Anyway, I wrote things like "make a million dollars"
"first black president," you know,
young man's wishes.
I was gonna redo the list, but then
"Help a complete stranger for the good. "
"Laugh until I cry. "
Not to be judgmental, but this is extremely weak.
Well, it's pointless now.
I would argue the exact opposite.
All right. That's it.
What are you doing?
A little rewrite, that's all.
I mean, don't you want to go out with some balls? Guns blazing?
我是说 难道你不想参加舞会 玩玩枪之类
Have a little fun?
It was not supposed to be about guns blazing or anything like that.
You're missing the point.
What the hell is "witness something majestic"?
Have you ever been to the Himalayas?
"Drive a Mustang Shelby. " Not bad.
I got one. All right. How about skydiving?
Now we're onto something.
-Uh-huh. -Let me see that. Come on.
"Kiss the most beautiful girl in the world"?
How do you propose doing that?
"Get a tattoo. " Is that the sum of your ambition?
Edward, I've taken baths deeper than you.
爱德华 连我家的浴盆都 比你的理想有深度
It's easy to be deep in freshman philosophy.
What's Dr. Hollins say?
We got months, right?
You think 45 years went by fast?
We should do this.
Don't think about money. That's all I got is money.
别顾虑钱的问题 我什么都没有 就是钱多
But I don't know. I
但是 我不知道 我
What don't you know?
It was meant to be metaphorical.
-I'm just trying to get a handle on -Blah, blah, blah.
You're the one crying you never took a shot. Here's your chance.
My chance to what? Make a fool of myself?
What do you think happens now?
I go back and sit around listening to people
talking about mezzanine financing and subordinated debt
pretending that I care about dead money.
You go home to some ceremonial procession into death
with everyone standing around watching you die
while you try to comfort them.
Is that what you want, to be smothered by pity and grief?
Well, not me.
And in your heart, Carter, I believe not you either.
We're both in the same boat. How's that for a metaphor?
We got a real opportunity here.
That is real twisted, even by your standards.
We still feel good, right? Energy's coming back a little bit.
Asymptomatic, the doc says.
The way I see it, we can lay around here
hoping for a miracle in some bullshit science experiment
or we can put some moves on.
What kind of hospital is this? There isn't an M.D. within a mile.
Virginia, we have to talk.
Uh, Mrs. Chambers, I'm gonna give you two a little quiet time.
唔 钱伯斯太太 你们两个单独谈谈吧
I knew we should have gone to UCLA.
The surgeons are better. Post-op is better.
-Wouldn't have mattered. -You don't know that.
We're not giving up. I want another opinion.
Yes, Oncology, please. Dr. Veteri's office.
Let me handle this.
Dr. Veteri? Virginia Chambers.
I'm going away for a while.
What are you talking about?
I'm talking about Edward and I are going away.
I don't expect you to understand.
You're damn right I don't understand.
I don't understand how you can just give up like this.
How you can just quit Quit fighting.
-Virginia. -Why don't you tell our children that?
See what they say when they find out you've given up on them.
Given up on them?
I've got 45 years greased up under the hood of a car
so that they didn't want for anything,
and they didn't.
I think I've earned some time for myself.
To do what? Run off with a total stranger?
He's not a stranger.
And I'm your husband. And I'm their father.
And I'm a grandfather. And I'm a damn mechanic!
You're a fool who thinks he's figured out a way how not to have cancer.
My husband is not for sale.
I've always been afraid to go up in an airplane
now I'm gonna jump out of one at the whim of a maniac!
How do you suggest we do that?
Back to the seat, Kyle.
You'll have to forgive him, Kyle. He's worried about the little woman.
This has nothing to do with my wife.
Thirty seconds to drop.
The Sequel was like that.
She never backed me up on anything.
The second Mrs. Edward Cole.
God, that woman hated me.
Maybe because you called her The Sequel.
Jeez, Kyle, I never looked at it that way.
天啊 凯尔 我怎么从来都没想到
-Fifteen seconds. -No, no.
-15秒 -不 不
-Wait! Wait, I can't do this. -Sure you can.
-等等 我做不到 -你一定行
No. I can't. Really.
It's not the jump you're afraid of.
You're just afraid your chute won't open
and you'll show up at your own funeral as a Denver omelet.
No, I'm pretty much just worried the chute won't open.
Man's got some lungs, huh?
Let's hit the silk!
Oh, yeah, beautiful!
Pull the thing! Pull the cord!
How about this, huh? This is living.
I hate your rotten guts.
Surrender to the void!
Which one of these damn cords do you pull?
Don't touch it. We're not in the drop zone yet. We could wind up in the
Okay. Let's deploy.
I got a feeling I'm falling
We're in the red zone. Pull the cord.
I got a feeling I'm falling in love
I was in love once.
Tommy, we live to die another day.
No jokes, Thomas, remember the will. You're so close.
别开玩笑了 托马斯 想想那遗嘱 你可离死不远了
Let me ask you something.
Uh, is it Tommy or Thomas?
Um, it's actually Matthew, but he finds that too biblical.
Let's eat something. Come on!
No, I couldn't think of anything I wanted to be stuck with permanently.
What's permanently? We're gonna be dead in five minutes.
-What? -Figure of speech.
So no Confederate flag, no black Jesus.
Pass. Yeah, sure.
Well, I never agreed to desecrate my body.
You worried they won't bury you in a Jewish cemetery?
It's not like you're dumping her for another woman.
I never been with another woman.
That's gotta be on the list.
No, no. I don't think so.
Man, oh, man. We ought to have a big orgy.
Orgy's not even being unfaithful.
It's just, like, professional.
I don't even have to be there.
-You gonna drive it or buy it a dress? -Ha, ha.
Just getting to know each other.
You sure we're cleared for this?
Of course we're cleared for it. What if we weren't?
Come on! Tap it, baby! Let's see what she's got.
来啊 跟上 宝贝儿 让我们瞧瞧她能开多快
Ah, we're doing just fine.
You sound like some kid going to the junior prom.
You sound like someone looking for an ass-whupping.
-You got nothing! -Ha, ha.
Got enough for you, Sunny Jim, dangling.
Did you just make a penis reference?
Jesus! You're gonna kill us both!
What if I do?
You're breaking evil on me.
Evil? I'll show you evil.
I'll show you Evel goddamn Knievel.
Pick up on this, chicken man!
You can run, but you cannot hide!
What do you wanna do next?
How much money do you have anyway?
Didn't anyone ever tell you
that it's rude to talk about someone else's money?
I never knew anyone with enough to ask.
It's indescribably beautiful.
I love flying over the polar cap.
Above the desolation.
it's really one of God's good ones.
So you think a being of some sort did all this?
You mean, do I believe if I look up in the sky
and promise this or that
the Biggie will make all this go away?
Then 95 percent of the people on Earth are wrong?
If life has taught me anything
it's that 95 percent of the people are always wrong.
I honestly envy people who have faith. I just can't get my head around it.
Maybe your head's in the way.
Carter, we've all had hundreds of these discussions
and every one of them always hits the same wall.
Is there a sugarplum fairy or not?
And nobody has ever gotten over that wall.
So, what do you believe?
I resist all beliefs.
No big bang? Random universe?
And the wheels on the bus go round and round.
What if you're wrong?
I'd love to be wrong.
If I'm wrong, I win.
I'm not sure it works that way.
Well, you're not claiming you know something I don't.
I just have faith.
and pass the mustard.
Know how they harvest caviar? -Hit me.
When a female sturgeon is caught
the fisherman has to take great care to see she dies peacefully.
-Mm-hm. -If she feels the least bit threatened
she secretes a sour chemical that ruins the eggs.
Sounds like my third wife.
Woman thought mayonnaise came from a plant.
I could get used to this.
Also sounds like my third wife.
Thirty years I've been coming here.
First time with a guy.
Well, I'm flattered.
Emily's 10th birthday was the best, though.
Well, she's not so little anymore.
You have a daughter?
-But I thought you said -Yeah, well
I didn't know you then.
Make a long story short, uh
I don't see her.
What are you doing?
-No, no, no. Cross that off. -Why not?
-不 不 把它给划掉 -为什么
-Cross it off. -Why?
-What's the matter? -Excuse me.
sometimes I get a little overbearing and I
-It's all right. It's okay. -What? What?
-没关系的 -怎么了 怎么了
The top on the catheter came loose, that's all.
Well, maybe we should get you to a hospital, Carter
-I just busted out of the hospital. -Huh?
It's all right. Look, it's already stopped, see? Let's get out of here.
已经没事了 看 血已经止住了 我们走吧
It looks wonderful. Uh Uh
-Maybe I'll get the -Let's just go.
-You go straight to the car. -Come on. Come on.
-你快上车 -快点儿 快点儿
-Where's? Where's Tommy? -In the salon, monsieur.
How much money do you have?
Well, I wouldn't bleed on the rugs.
I'm gonna find someplace where I can take a nice hot bath.
Be as good as new afterwards.
-Tom -Okay, we're all set, then? Okay, good.
-汤姆 -好的 稍等片刻 好吗
All right, it took some doing, but, uh, I rearranged everything.
好的 虽然绕了点路 但我都重新安排好了
Cairo tomorrow, Tanzania for two days, then Johannesburg on Saturday.
And, as previously directed, no bullfight, no tiger hunt.
事先申明 不准斗牛 不准猎虎
Thomas, I'd really like to say you're irreplaceable
And I'd really like to say you're a gracious man, and I love my job
我想说 你是个不错的人 我也很喜欢我的工作
but I, too, would be lying.
Turnabout is fair play.
I believe you learned that from the master.
Hey, look! They got Jeopardy! in the bathroom!
嘿 快看 他们有《冒险者》 在浴室里
On the TV. Jeopardy!
Jeopardy!? In French?
Mr. Cole? Virginia Chambers.
Oh. Yeah. Um, hi.
噢 我是 你好
Let me get Carter for you.
Well, actually, I called to speak to you.
Oh, yeah. He's He's fine.
May I ask where you are?
France, actually. Uh, tomorrow
Give him back to me.
Virginia. May I call you Virginia?
I'm not sure that I can make
I'm not asking for his sake.
I've been a nurse my entire adult life.
Had a ringside seat to more human tragedy
than any woman should ever have to bear.
Now, I'm prepared for my husband to die.
I'm just not prepared to lose him while he's still alive.
-Who is Howdy Doody? -You got it.
-You pick. -"TV Puppets," for 400.
-你选吧 -"电视木偶" 四百美元
These two Muppets
are roommates on the long-running show Sesame Street.
-Who are Bert and Ernie? -Who are Bert and Ernie?
the son of a Greek immigrant
was born in Towson, Maryland.
Who is Spiro Agnew?
you're looking, uh
This is the first time I was ever in a tub with no corners.
You know, ahem, Carter, uh, I've been thinking
what with the catheter and everything
maybe we should put this on hold for a while.
Come on, now, I told you, stop worrying. I'm fine.
别这样 我说过我没事的 别担心了
No, no, it's not that. It's not that.
It's just, I mean, if you're worried about letting me down
you know, it's a lot easier for me.
You talked to Virginia, didn't you?
Why do you think I'm doing this?
Because I talked you into it.
Edward, you're strong, but you're not that strong.
爱德华 我承认你很厉害 但绝对没那么厉害
After Rachel left for college, there was a hole.
I mean, you know, no more homework, no more Little League
recitals, school plays
kids crying, fights, skinned knees.
And for the first time in 40 years, I looked at Virginia
without all of the noise, without all of the distractions
and I couldn't remember what it felt like
when I could not walk down the street without holding her hand.
I mean, she was the same woman I fell in love with,
she hadn't changed.
But somehow everything was different.
We'd lost something along the way.
"TV Puppets," for 600.
Ventriloquist Edgar Bergen hosted a show named for this dummy.
Who is Charlie McCarthy?
Sandy? -Who's Charlie McCarthy?
I was very pleased when Edward decided
to eliminate item number nine from his list:
"Hunt the big cat. "
Of course, he did insist on discharging a few rounds from the big gun.
One proved to be enough.
-Gin. -Of course, gin, why not?
-赢了 -当然了 当然会赢
that the only dog ever struck by lightning was right here, in Egypt?
I wish I'd met you before we were dead.
You know, technically
we could cross off two items:
"See the pyramids"
and "witness something majestic. "
This is about as majestic as it gets.
Wait till you see my mountain.
Still, this ain't half bad.
You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death.
When their souls got to the entrance to heaven
the gods asked them two questions.
Their answers determined whether they were admitted or not.
Have you found joy in your life?
-Me? -Yeah, you.
-我吗 -是的 就是问你
Answer the question, "Have I found joy in my life?"
Has your life brought joy to others?
Ah, this type of question, I
I don't think about how other people gauge, uh
Let me put it to you this way.
After the breakup, and the ensuing fleecing of the dad
Emily went to live with her mother.
You know, you try to stay close, but it gets down to holidays
phone calls, birthday cards, you know.
Emily goes to college, joins one of her "Save the Poor People"
the animals, whatnot
meets a guy, decides she loves him.
Good-looking kid, driven, smart.
挺帅气的 有抱负 也聪明
But there was something about him
so when she said they were engaged I told her I was against it
but being my daughter, naturally
she went ahead and married him anyway.
Needless to say, I wasn't invited to the wedding.
That must have hurt.
First time he hit her, she came to me.
I wanted to bash his brains in.
She wouldn't let me.
Said she loved him, said it wasn't his fault, he'd had a few drinks
还说她有多爱他 说那不是他的错 他只是多喝了几杯
she was the one picked the fight.
Next time it happened, she didn't come to me.
The ex told me. Nice to hear her voice again.
What any father would do.
I took care of it.
I called a guy who called a guy who handles these kinds of things.
I don't know what he said, don't know what he did
all I know is he didn't kill him
and my daughter never heard from him again.
How did she react?
Called me names you wouldn't believe, and worse
她指着我大骂了一通 你不会相信的 还有更糟的
Said I was dead to her.
I'm not proud of everything I did
but I'm pretty sure I'd do it all again
so if they don't let me into Egyptian heaven because my daughter hates me
well, then I guess that's just the way it goes.
However you answer your two questions.
How do we get down from this tomb?
The empress was the wife of Shah Jahan,
the fifth Mogul emperor.
Although it was an arranged marriage, they were deeply in love
and remained inseparable until
she died giving birth to their 14th child.
Do you mind if I call you Ray?
Are you listening to anything I'm saying?
Fourteen kids. I'm with you.
It took 20,000 volunteers 22 years to complete this structure.
Every square foot designed by the shah himself.
So that's true love.
Don't know if I buy the whole "20,000 volunteers" business.
Funeral plans tend to confuse me.
Specifically, buried or cremated.
Now, I know it shouldn't matter, but I'm claustrophobic.
What if I wake up underground and nobody can hear me?
Do they still make those coffins with the bells?
Uh I don't believe they do.
Then cremated. What do you do with the ashes?
Do you bury them, scatter them, put them on a shelf?
是埋了好 还是撒了 或者放在架子上贡着
Float them down the Ganges on a bed of flowers?
What if I feel the flames?
Well, I definitely want to have myself cremated.
Maybe we should go frozen like Walt Disney.
Ashes put in a can, buried some place with a view.
Yeah. I never liked the sound of the word urn.
Really? Got any special feelings about crypt?
No, an old Chock Full o'Nuts can will do me just fine.
Chock Full o'Nuts, "the Heavenly Coffee. "
Better coffee even your money can't buy, my friend.
What do you got against Kopi Luwak?
Too fancy for my tastes.
Oh, yeah. Too fancy for my main man, Ray.
-Gin. -Goddamn it.
You get all the cards.
This is China for you, baby.
Be a lot more majestic if we could see it.
See that old woman?
Odds are we're gonna be dead before her.
Of course, she's probably got reincarnation going for her
however that system works.
Ah, the Buddhists believe you keep coming back.
Moving up or down a level, based on how you lived your life.
See, that's where they lose me.
I mean, what would a snail have to do to move up in the lineup?
Lay down a perfect trail of slime?
So shitty news, or really shitty news?
There's a storm up there.
Well, thanks for the bulletin, Tom, we can't even see the goddamn thing.
谢谢提醒 汤姆 我们连暴风雪的影子都看不见呢
They won't let us fly up until the weather clears.
Well, when do they expect it to clear?
Uh, next spring, sometime.
That's the really shitty news, in case you were wondering.
Well, maybe next time.
Well, maybe your mountain's trying to tell us something.
Maybe we've been gone long enough.
Gone long enough? Gone long enough for whom?
Oh. No, I get it.
噢 不是的 我知道了
The mountain isn't telling us it's time for us to go home.
The mountain is telling you to tell me it's time for me to go home, right?
-Yeah. -You shit.
Why don't you worry about your life, and let me worry about mine, okay?
Okay, okay! You don't have to get chippy with me.
好的 好的 你别发火啊
What's next? -Next, Hong Kong.
Silk suits and black walnut ice cream.
Tibetans call it Chomulungma, "Goddess Mother of the Snows. "
"Goddess Mother of the World," actually.
In the traditional Tibetan translation.
Pinot Noir, please.
I take it you've been there?
Uh Uh Um I just left, actually.
We tried to go up, but it wasn't
You're a little late in the season.
-My name's Angelica. -Yeah, Carter.
I'm sorry if this sounds terrible
but aren't you a little developed in years to be running up a giant mountain?
"Developed," now that's certainly one way of putting it.
Well, I've been up there, you know.
I made it to 26,000 feet before we had to turn back.
During the day, the sky is more black than blue.
There's not enough air to reflect the sunlight.
But at night, you've never seen so many stars.
Seems like they're just out of reach, and so bright.
They're like little holes in the floor of heaven.
-Did you hear it? -Hear what?
I read an account of a man who made it to the summit
and standing there at the top of the world
he experienced this profound silence.
It was like all sound just fell away.
And that's when he heard it.
The sound of the mountain.
He said it was like he heard the voice of God.
I've never done this before.
That sounds like such a clich?..
but I have a room upstairs.
I appreciate that.
She's a very lucky woman.
Well, I rather think I'm the lucky one.
Three things to remember when you get older:
Never pass up a bathroom
never waste a hard-on, and never trust a fart.
拉不出来 千万不要勉强 放屁也不代表一定想上厕所
I'll keep that in mind as I approach decrepitude.
Heh-heh. That's a good one there.
I want to go home now.
But I thought that What about the silk suits?
That was very clever of you, Edward.
How'd you know I wouldn't go through with it?
Nobody cares what you think.
Hey, Tommy, this isn't the way to Crenshaw.
嘿 汤米 这不是去克兰肖的路啊
There's an accident on the 10. We're taking the surface streets.
Why are we, uh?
He's kept tabs on her. Just in case you decided to
This was your idea, Tom?
No, it was my idea. I talked him into it.
不 这是我的主意 是我让他这么做的
-Yeah, talked him into it. -Hey.
Wait a minute. Edward. Edward? Wait a minute.
等等 爱德华 等等
Edward. What are you so afraid of?
Just because I told you my story does not invite you to be a part of it.
Oh. Like the lady in the bar?
-That's different. -Tell me how.
-Because it is! -How is it different?
You have no fucking idea who I am!
I built a billion-dollar business up from nothing!
Presidents have asked my advice.
I have dined with royalty and I'm supposed to make out like, what
this trip was supposed to mean something to me?
Like it was gonna change me?
How did you see it playing out, Carter? I knock on the door, she answers.
你觉得我们见面能怎样呢 我去敲门 然后她来应门
She's surprised and angry
but I tell her how much I love her and miss her.
And, " Oh. By the way, I'm gonna be dead soon
然后说"噢 对了 我马上就要死了"
so I'm reaching out to you because I don't wanna die alone"?
Everyone is afraid to die alone.
This was supposed to be fun.
That's all it ever was.
No, you don't get in. Call a cab.
Dear Heavenly Father, we Just want to thank you for this day
for having our family here together, once again.
And, Lord, we just want to thank you for returning my husband
their father, Lord, to us.
He's usually so much fun.
-Wait a minute. -What?
-I got something for us. -Oh?
I wasn't sure I'd need it.
You know how long it's been?
Well, it's been longer than that.
You know, I feel like a teenager.
Like our first time.
Uh, if we were teenagers, we never would've gotten out of that living room.
I remember the first time.
There was no tiptoeing around.
You were on me like that.
Oh, you playing hide-and-seek now, huh? Okay.
-which resulted in a 15 percent increase in cash assets
following the sale of the recovery center to Phillips Medical.
You ever read The Divine Comedy?
The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri's journey into hell.
Maybe we should take a break.
We don't need a break.
I'm in remission. I'm a goddamn medical miracle.
I'm simply asking
if you ever read The Divine Comedy.
Sir, you have a phone call.
Tommy, not now.
I really think you should take this.
What's the prognosis?
It's metastasized to his brain.
The odds aren't what we'd like them to be.
Uh, he wanted me to give you this.
I was supposed to wait until after
She never listened to me before.
Why change a winning formula?
You look like shit, Ray.
How they treating you?
Pea soup still sucks.
I'll have a word with the owner.
Can I have some water?
You can't have water, but I'll get you some of those lemon swabs, okay?
You still drinking that fancy coffee?
What are you, obsessed?
"Kopi Luwak is the world's most expensive coffee.
Though for some, it falls under the category of 'too good to be true. '
In the Sumatran village where the beans are grown
lives a breed of wild tree cat.
These cats eat the beans, digest them and then
The villagers then collect and process the stools.
It is the combination of the beans and the gastric juices of the tree cat
that give Kopi Luwak its unique flavor
You're shitting me.
Cats beat me to it.
-You got a pen? Give me a pen. -What?
-你有笔吗 给我一支笔 -怎么了
It's not finished.
It's not a one-man deal.
I'm afraid it'll have to be.
I'll be here when you get back.
Dear Edward, I've gone back and forth the last few days
trying to decide whether or not I should even write this.
In the end, I realized
I would regret it if I didn't
I know the last time we saw each other
we weren't exactly hitting the sweetest notes.
It certainly wasn't the way I wanted the trip to end.
I suppose I'm responsible, and for that I'm sorry.
But, in all honesty, if I had the chance, I'd do it again.
但是 如果重来一次 我还是会这么做的
Virginia said I left a stranger
and came back a husband.
I owe that to you.
There's no way I can repay you for all you've done for me
so rather than try, I'm Just going to ask you to do something else for me.
Find the Joy in your life.
You once said you're not everyone.
You're certainly not everyone.
But everyone is everyone.
My pastor always says:
" Our lives are streams
flowing into the same river
towards whatever heaven lies in the mist beyond the falls. "
Hello, sweetie. Hi.
Find the Joy in your life, Edward.
close your eyes and let the waters take you home.
Good afternoon. My name is Edward Cole.
I don't know what most people say at these occasions, because
I've tried to avoid them.
The simplest thing is
I loved him and I miss him.
Carter and I saw the world together.
Which is amazing
when you think that only three months ago
we were complete strangers.
that it doesn't sound selfish of me
but the last months of his life
were the best months of mine.
And he knew it before I did.
I'm deeply proud that this man
found it worth his while to know me.
I think it's safe to say that we brought some Joy to one another's lives.
So, one day, when
I go to some final resting place
if I happen to wake up next to a certain wall with a gate
I hope that Carter's there
and show me the ropes on the other side.
Edward Perriman Cole died in May.
It was a Sunday, in the afternoon
and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
He was 81 years old.
Even now, I can't claim to understand the measure of a life.
But I can tell you this:
I know that when he died, his eyes were closed
and his heart was open.
And I'm pretty sure he was happy with his final resting place
because he was buried on the mountain
and that was against the law.
