A few questions

Posted by Tomoya on February 16, 2004

I'm translating "CSI" for Japanes fans.
I think there may be some fans here.
Can I ask you some expression from that show?

I think you need some context to fully understand
a particular phrase, therefore I put some dialogues
together, sorry for posting too long:

1) "Turf club after the seventh":

HORATIO CAINE:
Turf Club after the seventh. You are a sure bet, Jimmy.
(When Horatio finds a suspect who likes to go to hoarse track to bet, and says like this:)

2) " Worls collide"
HORATIO :
Okay. Her ten card as soon as you can.
(ten card: fingerprints)

ALEXX WOODS:
If you tell me your theory.

HORATIO CAINE:
'Kay. Pretty girl. Two taps to the back of the head. "World's collide".

3)"I'm just taking one day at a time."

PATRICIA CUSACK:
[INTO PHONE] Of course it's beautiful.
"I'm just taking one day at a time."

GINA CUSACK
[INTO PHONE] One day at a time in paradise. Come on, Mom, you gotta admit. This beats wearing three layers just to get out to your mailbox.

(It's a dialogue between a mom and a daughter on the phone when mom moved to a bigger house in Florida from
Pennsylvania.)

I'm sorry for bothering you guys with these questions,
but please help me. Thank you.
