小编摘要：Oodles means lots of something，and to chuck something is to throw it out.
LL: Oh! I forgot about this closet. Whoa. There are oodles of things in here I don't need.
LH: Oodles? 你是说面条，noodles?
LL: No, no. Oodles and noodles may rhyme, but oodles means lots of something.
LH: 噢，oodles和noodles虽然押韵，但是oodles和面条毫无关系。Larry，你壁橱里怎么会有那么多东西呀？ 看来今天我们要扔很多东西。That means there will be oodles of things to throw away!
LL: Yes, like the oodles of old tennis balls I'll never use again.
LL: You know, Li Hua, those are magazines I have had since I was a kid. I would love to look through them, but we don't have oodles of time.
LH: 你小时候的杂志一直保留到现在， 难怪这么多。对了，你为什么说我们没有很多时间来收拾？我们今天还有别的事吗？
LL: Well, I arranged for a local charity to stop by at 5:00 and pick up the things I don't need. We've got oodles of work to do before they come, and time is running out.
LL: The problem is that I want to give them useful things. I know I have oodles of things to throw away, but I am not sure I'll have oodles of things to give to charity.
LL: Say, are you hungry? Why don't we make some lunch?
LL: I really need to go to the grocery store, but I DO have oodles of noodles.
LL: I'm so glad you came by to help out, Li Hua. You've made cleaning my apartment oodles of fun!
LL: Okay, now that we've collected everything, I need to decide what I'm going to give to charity and what I'm going to chuck.
LH: Chuck? chuck又是什么意思?
LL: To chuck something is to throw it out.
LH: Oh, chuck就是扔掉。那我们把不要的东西分成两堆， 怎么样？ 一堆捐献， 一堆扔掉。
LL: Okay, I am definitely going to chuck these old magazines.
LH: 这些旧杂志一定要扔掉，那这些毛衣呢？ Do you want to chuck these sweaters?
LL: No, I don't want to chuck those. I will give those to charity.
LL: I don't think I'll change my mind, Li Hua. Most of the things I am chucking, I haven't used in months.
LL: It just feels good to chuck a bunch of stuff you don't need. My apartment will be neater after we are done, and I'll have more room.
LH: 没错，东西扔了以后房间也会整齐一些，地方也会显得大一些Larry, 这个炒菜锅也要扔掉吗？
LL: Well, the handle came off, and I bought another one. So, I just thought I'd chuck it. Since the pan is broken, I didn't want to give it to charity.
LH: 锅子的把手掉了？让我看看。Larry，我喜欢这个炒菜锅。把它扔了还不如给我算了。 我可以修理。
LL: Li Hua. I'd be happy if you got some use out of it. Giving the pan to a friend is much better than just chucking it in the trash can.
LH: 谢谢你， Larry。 你没听说吗？ 一个人的垃圾是另一个人的宝贝："One man's trash is another man's treasure."
今天李华学到了两个常用语。一个是oodles, 意思是很多。还有一个是chuck, 意思是扔掉。
