Helen: All the trimmings? I don't understand.

海伦:所有的饰物!我不明白。

Rob: All the trimmings–it means all the extra things that traditionally come with something to make it more special.

罗布:All the trimmings的意思是和某样东西搭配的额外的东西,会使那个东西更加特别。

Helen: I see. Like all these decorations?

海伦:我明白了。就像所有的这些装饰品?

Rob: Yes. In my family, we have always had Christmas with all the trimmings, so we have a Christmas tree, decorations, gifts, Christmas songs, silly Christmas games and, most importantly, Christmas lunch. Now, come this way!

罗布:对,我家经常会用各种配饰来装饰圣诞节,所以我们有圣诞树、装饰品、礼物、圣诞歌曲、愚蠢的圣诞游戏,最重要的是,我们有圣诞午餐。现在,过来这边吧!

Helen: Roast turkey for lunch!

海伦:午餐吃烤鸡!

Rob: Now that is a roast turkey with all the trimmings! Not only is it a turkey, but we're eating it with all the things you traditionally eat with Christmas roast turkey: cranberry sauce, roast potatoes, gravy, stuffing, carrots-

罗布:是烤鸡和其他的配菜!并不是仅仅有烤鸡,还有我们通常在圣诞节会和烤鸡一起搭配吃的各种菜肴:蔓越橘酱、烤土豆、肉汁、馅料胡萝卜……

Helen: Mmm, I'm very hungry now!

海伦:嗯,我现在非常饿!

Rob: All the trimmings!

罗布:所有的配菜!

Helen: I think I understand what 'all the trimmings' means now.

Rob: It's an expression usually used with food, especially at Christmas and for the big roast dinners that we like to eat here in Britain. I adore Sunday lunch with all the trimmings: roast meat, along with lots of vegetables and sauces and other traditional accompaniments. Mmmmm....

罗布:这个短语通常和食物一起使用,尤其是像我们英国在圣诞节吃烧烤晚餐时会使用的短语。我喜欢有各种配菜的周日午餐:有烤肉、还有许多蔬菜和酱汁,还有其他的传统配餐。嗯……
