夜鹰社阅读活动进入四月份，正巧有人选择阅读《查理和巧克力工厂》（Charlie and the Chocolate Factory），因此本次“夜鹰看片会”选择了由约翰尼·德普主演的这部真人电影。
- Or are you pulling my leg?
pull someone's leg 戏弄；捉弄
- It’s my secret hoard.
- And now, you and I are going to have one more fling at finding that last ticket.
a fling 短暂的放纵；一时的尽情享乐
- They looked at each other, and both started giggling nervously.
- What on earth's going on!
其实就是What is going on! 中间加了个 on earth。表示一种惊叹“怎么啦？”其实有个粗口的表达方式更常见，但是这个是给孩子们看的童话嘛。
- The reason for this was that the toothpaste factory, the place where Mr Bucket worked, suddenly went bust and had to close down.
- And every day, little Charlie Bucket, trudging through the snow on his way to school, would have to pass Mr Willy Wonka’s giant chocolate factory.
- It seemed doubtful whether he could go on much longer like this without becoming dangerously ill.
- Several people went hurrying past him on the pavement, their chins sunk deep in the collars of their coats, their feet crunching in the snow.
- none of them was taking the slightest notice of the small boy crouching in the gutter.
- He held it tightly between his shivering fingers, gazing down at it.

- The fat around his neck bulged out all around the top of his collar like a rubber ring.
- The sheer blissful joy of being able to fill one’s mouth with rich solid food!
- There was a peculiar floating sensation coming over him, as though he were floating up in the air like a balloon.
- I'll be seeing you soon.
- Mrs Bucket simply stood and stared, while the four old grandparents, who were sitting up in bed balancing bowls of soup on their laps, all dropped their spoons with a clatter and froze against their pillows.
- The others watched him, waiting for the verdict.
- The colour was rushing to his cheeks, and his eyes were wide open, shining with joy, and in the centre of each eye, right in the very centre, in the black pupil, a little spark of wild excitement was slowly dancing.
- You must start making preparations at once! Wash your face, comb your hair, scrub your hands, brush your teeth, blow your nose, cut your nails, polish your shoes, iron your shirt, and for heaven’s sake, get all that mud off your pants!
cut your nails 剪指甲
- And don’t fluster poor Charlie.
- Provided, of course, that he feels well enough...
He kept making quick jerky little movements with his head, cocking it this way and that,
The next two children, Violet Beauregarde and Mike Teavee, came forward to have their tickets examined and then to have their arms practically pumped off their shoulders by the energetic Mr Wonka.
- I shouldn’t like to lose any of you at this stage of the proceedings!
- ‘Here we are!’ cried Mr Wonka, trotting along in front of the group.
- They’d perish if they went outdoors in this weather!
- We’ll never get round today if you dawdle like this!
- The place was like a gigantic rabbit warren, with passages leading this way and that in every direction.

- This is the nerve centre of the whole factory.
- There were green meadows on either side of the valley, and along the bottom of it there flowed a great brown river.
- They were completely bowled over by the hugeness of the whole thing.
be bowled over by 使…印象深刻；使…很惊讶
原文中这整个一段都是各种震惊的单词，flabbergasted staggered dumbfounded bewildered dazzled
- It churns it up!
- A whang-doodle would eat ten Oompa-Loompas for breakfast and come galloping back for a second helping.
- the Oompa-Loompas spent every moment of their days climbing through the treetops looking for other things to mash up with the caterpillars to make them taste better
mash up 捣烂,弄碎(食物);把…捣成糊状
- But oh, how they craved them.
How they craved them.
- You can gorge yourselves silly on them!
gorge on 贪婪地吃；狼吞虎咽
- I must warn you, though, that they are rather mischievous.
- cried Mr Wonka, hopping up and down and waggling his stick in the air
