Since the 1970s, home video games
have been coveted by children around the world.
I was not one of those children.
What do you think? I won it bowling.
It was either that or a Crock-Pot,
and I already got three of those,
so I thought I'd surprise you.
No, thank you. Video games are for children.
不了 多谢好意 游戏机是给小孩玩的
Sheldon, you are a child.
I just blew the hot off your SpaghettiOs.
I'm sorry, Meemaw,
I just don't think it's a very productive use of my time.
You're a man of science.
Aren't you interested in doing a little research here?
"Brave adventurer, prepare to enter a world
beyond your imagination.
Where the only sound you'll hear is your own heart pounding
as you race through the dark woods."
- This sounds terrifying. - Really?
You don't even want to try it?
Honestly, I'd have more fun with the Crock-Pot.
Fine. I'll just play by myself.
- That's amusing. - Why?
I guess it's the juxtaposition of an old person using new technology;
What if this old person really tickles you?
I'll play! I'll play!

I'm not getting any younger.
I have to read the instructions first.
Did you know this document gives us specific legal rights?
We may also have other rights which vary from state to state?
- All right, I'm ready. - Great!
-好了 我准备好了 -太好啦
To read the manufacturer's warranty.
Oh, you're killing me.
Hey, George, how y'all been?
Good, good. Hey, fixed your place up, looking snazzy.
Ah, thanks. Even got a new water cooler.
It's got those pointy cups, look like Madonna's bra.
So, what's going on with your truck,
other than the fact it's got 130,000 miles on it?
She been running hot. I'm worried I need a new radiator.
As your friend and neighbor, I hope not,
but as a businessman, that'd be pretty sweet.
It could just be the thermostat not opening right.
How'd you know that?
I took auto repair last year.
And you actually paid attention?
I'm as surprised as you are.
Now we need to put in a name before we start.
What are you thinking?
We should combine the letters in our two names,
Sheldon and Meemaw.
Like, uh... ShelMaw?
No, using all the letters, like...
不是 得用上所有字母 比如...
Did you just do that in your head?
Never mind, just put it down.
All right, here we go.
I thought I was playing.
You don't know how to play; you didn't read the manual.
You're in charge, Emelda.
Should I go left or right?
Why don't you try going in that cave?
Why would I do that? It's probably dangerous.
Sheldon, they wouldn't have put the cave there
if they didn't want you to go in it.
Seems unnecessarily reckless, but okay.
Dark and dangerous.
Just keep going.
The box was right, my heart is pounding.
Well, the kid was right--
it's just the thermostat.
Yeah, yeah. So how long to fix it?
- Nothing, 20 minutes. - Can I help?
-很快 20分钟就好 -能让我帮忙吗
Well, sure. Grab yourself a pair of coveralls and have at it.
I'm paying you so my own son can fix my truck?
Well, we could have my son do it,
but we know how that's gonna end.
What are you doing?
- Kill him! - I'm trying!
Well, what's the problem?
I seem to have weak thumbs.
I'm a little winded.
Why don't you let the old person give it a shot?
Would you like me to give you a tutorial first?
Give it to me. I'll figure it out.
We are such different people, Meemaw.
Die, you sumbitches, die!
死吧 你们这群狗逼 死吧
- Very different people. - Die, you son bitches!
-非常不一样 -死吧 你们这群狗逼
When I grow up, will I be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader?
"Not likely." Darn it.
Why don't you tell her?
Herschel offered me a part-time job.
and football practice, when would you do your homework?
When does he do it?
Are you okay with this?
Yeah, I think it'll be good for him.
I don't know, I think his education should come first.
Come on, Mom. It's not like I'm gonna graduate
拜托 妈 我又不是能以
Fine, but I want you here for dinner every night,
and if your grades slip, you are done.
- Thank you. - Now go wash up.
And don't get grease all over my towels.
He really did know his stuff at the shop. It was impressive.
All right, well, maybe it'll be a good thing.
How about a Houston Oilers cheerleader?
"Signs point to yes." I'm gonna marry a quarterback.
Over the next few days,
I ran to my meemaw's house
so we could save the 8-bit princess.
And if it's unclear how important this was,
let me say it again: I ran.
Right behind you, monster, monster!
在你后面 有怪兽 有怪兽
You're losing life points, do something!
Calm down, I've got this.
No, no, no, you're going to die!
不行 不行 你要死了
We're going to have to restart this level!
Okay, we need to set a few ground rules.
Mazes, puzzles, panic attacks,
迷宫 解谜 恐慌症发作
Whooping monster butt, that's my purview.
Excuse me. Is there a monster on that screen?
- And can two players swing the magic sword? - No.
So what does that mean as we go forward?
I have to shut my yap.
Can I still have a panic attack?
If you do it quietly.
So me and Herschel dropped the engine on this Pacer today.
I had a buddy in high school had a Pacer
with the flames painted on the side,
which was funny 'cause the damn thing caught fire
during the Homecoming parade.
Too bad he didn't know Herschel.
He can fix anything. Guy's a genius.
You mean a car genius.
Is Dad getting his feelings hurt? "Yes."
The ball don't lie.
There it is! The cyclops!
- I see it! - Get it, get it!
-我看到了 -干掉它 干掉它
I'm trying! Use the sword!
- Use the sword! - Your yap is open again.
It's past his bedtime. Let's go.
Oh, come on, five more minutes?
No. Now say good night to your grandson.
You'll play with him again tomorrow.
Good night, Sheldon.
Good night, Meemaw.
Don't play without me.
And I got my answer.
Hey, neighbor, what's up?
Sorry to bother you so late,
but one of my guys called in sick tomorrow...
So we couldn't find the key to the palace,
but then I figured out it was in the hay behind the stables.
- Hey, Herschel. - Mary.
-你好啊 赫歇尔 -玛丽
I also found us extra life points inside a demon.
There are demons in this game?
Don't worry, Meemaw cut his head off.
Anyhoo, uh, I was wondering
if Georgie could come by after school tomorrow and help me out.
Oh, I don't know, Herschel, he's got football practice.
我说不好 赫歇尔 他还有橄榄球训练
Herschel's asking if you want to work after school.
Great, I'll be there.
- What about football? - What about it?
I mostly sit on the bench all day.
That's because you got to earn your way on to first string.
Or I can earn some money working for Herschel.
Why don't you and I talk a bit before you make a decision?
Sorry, I-I didn't mean to cause a problem.
I'll find somebody else. Y'all have a good night.
- Night, Herschel. - Night.
-晚安 赫歇尔 -晚安
You really want to quit football to go work in a garage?
I thought you loved the game.
I do, but look at me. I weigh 125 pounds.
我是喜欢 但你看看我 只有56公斤的小身板
- That's not important. - It's not?
Every time I get tackled, somebody's got to run over
with smelling salts just to wake me back up.
Well, this isn't your decision. You're gonna play football.
Oh yeah? Wait and see.
Even while sleeping,
my quest to save the princess continued,
which was quite a departure from my usual dreams,
such as determining the coolest prime number--
which, by the way, is 73.
Kill it, Meemaw! Kill it!
杀了它 姥姥 杀了它
What do you think I'm trying to do? It won't die.
Maybe you need a different weapon.
I already tried the slingshot and the boomerang.
All I have left is the damn flute.
It's a piccolo. Didn't you pay attention
when the old lady gave it to us?
- Hello? - Meemaw.
I'm sorry for waking you, but I know how to kill the cyclops.
We have to play the piccolo.
Ooh. What a great idea, moonpie.
We'll try it tomorrow.
How'd you answer your phone so fast? It's not next to your bed.
Uh, well, actually, I was on my way to the bathroom.
You know us old people and our bladders.
I'll call you right back.
You're playing the game right now.
I saw you with my binoculars.
Oh. How about that.
You promised not to play without me.
We're a team. Emelda Showmen, remember?
我们可是搭档 艾默达·休曼 记得吗
I'm turning off the game and going to sleep right now.
I love you, good night.
Binoculars for his birthday.
What was I thinking?
Don't worry about it.
I was practicing chitchat.
Your mother's taking him to school.
That's not very efficient. Our car's already going there.
Not that it's any of your business,
but I needed a break from your brother.
I certainly understand that. He's an acquired taste.
The first time I tried it, I thought I was eating gravel.
But then I put a little sugar on it and let it get soggy.
Now it's in my top six cereals.
I'll try soaking Georgie in a bowl of milk.
The clue was you don't normally put people in bowls of milk.
I'm Sheldon Cooper's grandmother
and, uh, I need to take him out of school today.
Sure. What's the reason?
His Aunt Emelda's not doing well,
and has asked to see him 'fore she goes.
Does she want to see his older brother also?
Nah. She doesn't like him as much.
Okay. I'll just track down Sheldon, then.
Boy, do I love a pop quiz.
Will Sheldon Cooper please come to the main office?
This is hooky, Meemaw.
Hooky is a serious offense.
You're messing with me, right?
Any other kid would be thrilled their grandma
took them out of school to play a video game.
You've known me ten years.
When have I ever messed with you?
I didn't see your kid at practice today.
Everything all right?
That's it? You're not gonna ask me what's going on?
I just did. You shut me out.
Well, it doesn't mean you can't persist a little.
You know, this is the kind of crap I get from my wife.
I do not need it from you.
You're really not gonna ask?
Well, moonpie, this is it.
Our final dungeon.
Would you like to fight the last boss?
You think I'm ready?
We couldn't have gotten here without you.
Well, except for the part you did when I was sleeping.
We're having a moment here. Don't ruin it.
I've fought many digital battles in my life,
but none are as memorable as this first one with my meemaw.
By handing me the controller,
she was telling me she believed in me.
That inside my small, fragile frame beat the heart of a hero.
Behind you, behind you! What're you doing?
在你后面 在你后面 你在瞎搞什么
- Hit the A. Hit... - I know, I'm pressing it.
-按A键 快按 -我知道 我按了
- Hit the A button. - I'm pressing it.
- Throw a bomb, throw the bomb! - Which way?
-扔炸弹 快扔炸弹 -朝哪边
Hey. You up for some company?
Sorry about the light beer,
but Brenda's got me on this health kick.
You are melting away.
Shut up. So, listen...
I feel bad about Georgie and this whole football thing.
Thanks, but it's not on you.
I appreciate that, but you got to know
there's an upside to this.
Your son has got a special gift.
We are talking about Georgie, right?
Yeah. I mean, first off, the kid really knows his way
是啊 首先 这孩子对引擎
around an engine, which is all well and good.
But when it comes to fixing tires,
I swear, I've never seen anything like him.
Tires? How do you mean?
George, I've been patching flats for 25 years.
You know, slap some soapy water on them,
look for the air bubble.
But your son, he doesn't need any tricks.
He knows where the puncture holes are.
He's got a sixth sense for tire damage.
I mean, you got to see him in action.
I-It'll give you chills.
You know, now that you say it,
whenever we had a leaky football,
he knew exactly where the hole was.
I am telling you, your boy's got a future in the tire business.
Goodyear, Firestone, somebody's gonna scoop him up first round.
固特异 风驰通 一定会有大公司抢着挖他去
Thanks, Herschel. That does my heart good.
谢了 赫歇尔 我听了很欣慰
So I guess you got two geniuses in the family.
Who knows, maybe Missy'll make it three.
I won. I saved the princess.
I knew you could do it!
Yes! We saved her!
We saved the princess! We did it!
- We did it. - Yep.
We just return to our ordinary lives?
Or... we could just go to the store and buy another game.
或者 我们可以到店里 再买一个游戏
Since that night, I've battled orcs, zombies,
从那晚开始 我对战过半兽人 丧尸
Nazis, Nazi-zombies, a dinosaur in a go-kart,
纳粹 纳粹丧尸 坐卡丁车的恐龙
and played Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher"
on a stringless, plastic guitar.
But nothing would ever compare
to that first quest with my meemaw.
Although Leonard pulling a groin muscle
doing Dance Dance Revolution was a close second.
Unchained Melody - Alex North
Talk to me. Tell me where it hurts.
I got goosebumps.
谢尔顿在《生活大爆炸》第四季第10集说过"73是第21个质数 把73反过来的37是第12个质数把12再反过来就是21 而21正是7乘3的积另外 二进制中73是1001001 这数字是正看反看都一样的回文"
