You're never really done for as long as you've got a good story and someone to tell it to.

从这篇博客的开头,我就能猜出来后面一定会写的很混乱,哈哈,如果你能仔细读完,也许能发现几个之前不曾注意到的彩蛋~

高中第一次看的,那时候就图个乐呵,看斗琴,后来陆陆续续又看了好几遍,看懂些东西,但还是感觉无从下笔。

既然最吸引人的地方是斗琴,那就从斗琴说起,斗琴的时候,他们有很多对话,比如,我已经发现我写的很混乱了,我决定从头说起

当然开篇就是这一句了

You're never really done for as long as you've got a good story and someone to tell it to.

This scene almost across the whole movie.

It happened everytime...  
Someone would look up and see her.  
It's difficult to understand.  
What I'm saying is...  
There were more than a thousand of us on that ship, travelling richfolk, immigrants, and strange people, and us.  
Yet, there was always one!  
One guy alone who would see her first.  
Maybe he was just sitting there eating, or walking on the deck.  
Maybe he was just fixing his pants.  
He'd look up for a second, a quick glance out to sea, and he'd see her.  
Then he'd just stand there, rooted to the spot, his heart racing.  
And every time, every damn time, I swear, he'd turn to us, towards the ship towards everybody and scream...  
America!  

接下来就是 Danny 捡到 1900 了,我神奇的发现一个中国人的乱入,哈哈哈哈

-- Danny, what are you going to call the nino?

-- Hell, I didn't think about that. To start off, I name him after me, Danny Boodman. Then I'll put T.D. in the middle like the rich folks puts on their cuff-links in shirts. That give it class, to put that in the middle, don't you think?

-- All fucking lawyers gots initials in the middle of their names.

-- The one who sent you straight to jail for ten years?

-- You got one good memory, chicky China man!

从下面几个图,我怀疑 1900 应该就是报纸上的这个人不小心丢到船上的,看起来血统挺好,Danny 也是一直害怕自己的孩子被别人抢走,表现的不大自然,当然这和后来的船长想把他送到孤儿院一样

话说 1900 像只小鸡一样被拎起来好有意思 23333

-- Danny, what's an orphanage?

-- Well, a orphanage is like a great big prison where they lock up folks that ain't got kids.

-- So if I wasn't with you they would put you in an orphanage?

-- You got that right, little Lemon. Night-night.

接下来这是这对好基友的见面,sea legs 好贴切

Hey, Conn, what's the matter? You lose your sea legs?

也许这就是天才吧,一个人的孤独

America!

这一句你们知道什么意思吗?

最开始我以为就是跟 「五毛特效」一个意思,其实是这样的,你们看图吧 = =

Hey, You the fish with the twenty-dollar name?

斗琴的时候,他们有很多对话,比如

-- You're the one who invented Jazz, right?

-- That's what they say.

-- And you're the one who can't play unless you have the ocean under your ass? Right?

-- That's what I say.

这段简直给我笑喷了啊哈哈哈哈,老外表达的好有意思。

还有当那个小号手去劝 1900 的时候,真是一副日了狗的表情哈哈哈哈太萌了

-- What is wrong with you?

-- I can't help it. Music makes me cry.

-- The whole crew bet on you!

-- I put a year's pay on the line! And you're crying?

-- Now you cut that out and start thinking your music!

-- Can I bet, too?

-- No! It's bad luck to bet on yourself.

-- I don't want to bet on me. I want to bet on him. He's the greatest.

-- You are crazy, you know that?

-- That way, if you lose I'll get your money back.

-- ...

然后主角放大招了,弹琴那段每一个 frame 都是经典,我就不截图了

You asked for it, asshole.

小号手去借留声机的时候也比较有意思

-- I should have known you're a thief.

-- No, I was looking for this.

-- And what do you need that for?

-- It's a matter of life and death. And I need a phonograph, too.

-- A thief and a liar.

-- Look! Pops, I don't have a whole lot of time here.

-- Well, I do! Seeing as I have a gun.

1900 决定下船,上陆地看看,然而看到一望无际的陆地,又转身回去,这段也给最后埋下了伏笔

接下来是 1900 对人生的思考,There was no end. What I did not see was where the whole thing came to an end, the end of the world. 这段话说的很有深度

......The world would be hangingon your every word, and they'd go crazy for your music. Believe me.

All that city... You just couldn't see an end to it. The end! Please? You please just show me where it ends? It was all very fineon that gangway and I was grand, too, in my overcoat. I cut quite a figure. And I was getting off, guaranteed. That's wasn't the problem. It wasn't what I saw that stopped me, Max. It was what I didn't see. Can you understand that? What I didn't see. In all that sprawling city, there was everything except an end. There was no end. What I did not see was where the whole thing came to an end, the end of the world. You take a piano. Keys begin, the keys end. You know there are 88 of them, nobody can tell you any different. They are not infinite, you are infinite. And on those keys, the music that you can make is infinite. I like that. That I can live by. You get me up on that gangway and you roll out in front of me a keyboard of millions and billions of keys that never end. And that's the truth, Max, that they never end. That keyboard is infinite. And if that keyboard is infinite,then on that keyboard there is no music you can play. You're sitting on the wrong bench. That's God's piano. Christ, did you see the streets? Just the streets. There were thousands of them. How do you do it down there? How do you choose just one? One woman, one house, one piece of land to call your own, one landscape to look at, one way to die. All that world just weighing down on you. You don't even know where it comes to an end. I mean, aren't you ever just scared of breaking apart at the thought of it? At the enormity of living it? I was born on this ship. And the world passed me by, but two thousand people at a time. And there were wishes here, but never more than fit between prow and stern. You played out your happiness on a piano that was not infinite. I learned to live that way. Land? Land is a ship too big for me. It's a woman too beautiful. It's a voyage too long. Perfume too strong. It's music I don't know how to make. I could never get off this ship. At best, I can step off my life. After all, I don't exist for anyone. You're the exception, Max. You're the only one who knows that I'm here. You're a minority. And you'd better get used to it. Forgive me, my friend. But I'm not getting off.

1900 的一生都是在藐视规则,Fuck the law!, Fuck the regulations!, Fuck Jazz, too!, Fuck war。对于他来说,陆地,是 god's piano, not his

最后以 1900 那段调侃结束吧,这篇博客我没讲太多,各位看官自己理解吧,每个人都有不一样的理解。

Hey, Max. Picture the scene at the Golden Gates. Some guy searching a list trying to find my name, not finding it. What did you say your name was again? Nineteen Hundred. Niemann, Nightingale, Ninestock... Nittledeen? Well, you see, sir. I was born on a ship. Beg your pardon? Born, raised, and died on a ship. Maybe I'm not registered there. Yeah, Shipwreck? No, six and a half tons of dynamite. Feeling better now? Yeah, I'm fine, except I lost an arm. An arm? Yes, in the explosion. Well, you should be able to find one over there. Which one did you say you were missing? Left, sir. I'm dreadfully sorry. We only seem to have two rights. Two right arms? Yes. Afraid so. Would you mind awfully if.... If I what? Well, if you take a right arm instead of a left? Well, all things considered, a right arm than nothing, I suppose. Couldn't agree more. By the way, we have one black armand one white arm. Oh, no.... Matching color, please. I have nothing against the other race, but it's just a question of aesthetics. No laughing matter, Max. What a cock-up, spend eternity with two right arms? I mean, how would you make the sign of the cross? Hey, Max. Imagine the music I could play with two right arms. Hope I can find a piano up there.
