Friends: Joey writes a letter

Adesso vediamo una clip da Friends dove Joey cerca di scrivere una lettera “intelligente”.

Ross: What’re… what’re you working on?
Joey: Oh, Monica and Chandler’s recommendation. I want it to sound smart but.. I don’t know any big words or anything, so…
Ross: Why don’t you use your thesaurus?
Joey: What did I just say?
Ross: Watch. Here, you uh, you highlight the word you wanna change. Go under Tools and the thesaurus generates… ‘gives’… ‘gives’ a whole list of choices. You can pick the word that sounds smartest.
Joey: Oh, my God, that’s great! I’m smart! No no, I’m… “brainy, bright, clever”, I love this thing!


Joey: Hey, finished my recommendation. Here. And I think you’ll be very, very happy. It’s the longest I ever spent on a computer without looking at porn.
Chandler: I don’t… uh… understand.
Joey: Some of the words are a little too sophisticated for ya?
Monica: It doesn’t make any sense.
Joey: Well of course it does! It’s smart! I used the the-saurus!
Chandler: On every word?
Joey: Yep!
Monica: Alright, what was this sentence originally?
Joey: Oh, ‘They are warm, nice, people with big hearts’.
Chandler: And that became ‘they are humid prepossessing Homo Sapiens with full sized aortic pumps…?
Joey: Yeah, yeah. And hey, I really mean it, dude.
Monica: Hey, Joey, I don’t think we can use this.
Joey: Why not?
Monica: Well, because you signed it baby kangaroo Tribbiani. Hey, why don’t you stop worrying about sounding smart and just be yourself!
Chandler: You know what? You don’t need a thesaurus, just write from here, your full sized aortic pump.
Joey: … and hey, I really mean it dude.
