Zina: He's on the phone right now. I 1) imagine he's finding out.
Dave: What's he going to say?
Zina: He might find it a little 2) awkward, but he's going to thank me.
Dave: Are you sure?
Zina: Yes. Because I'm going to help him become a very, very rich man.
A: What would you do if Matt Daemon asked you out?
B: I can't even imagine that he would talk to me...
【On the phone 在电话上】
与phone搭配的动词包括answer, speak on ,talk on。要注意phone之前要有定冠词the。“接听电话”是answer the phone，绝不可误用receive, speak/talk on the phone是“在电话中讲话”。而“你的电话”在英文里绝非your telephone，应说It's for you或You are wanted on the phone。
A: Janet, you are wanted on the phone.
B: I'm sorry. I Just can't answer the phone right now.
1) imagine (v.) 想像
2) awkward (a.) 感到尴尬的,令人尴尬的
