Y: Hi, this is Yang Chen.
P: And I'm Patrick.
(Splashing, pool sounds)
P: Yang Chen, do you know why we are at the swimming pool?
Y: We are going to talk about swimming.
P: But we aren't just talking about swimming. We are going to be talking about the Olympic sport of synchronized swimming.
Y: Synchronized swimming? 花样游泳！！！Do we have to talk about it. Patrick?
P: Yes, we do. Synchronized S-Y-N-C-H-R-O-N-I-Z-E-D swimming, Yang Chen. You know, the sport that combines swimming, gymnastics and dance. Why do you ask?
Y: 我告诉你一个秘密，你可保证不能告诉别人。我特别不喜欢Synchronized swimming. What a dumb sport!
P: How can you say that, Yang Chen? Those swimmers work really hard to get their routines in perfect unison. It is a very demanding sport, requiring strength and artistry.
Y: Strength力量，artistry 艺术，少拿这些大词儿吓唬我。 It's a dumb sport. It's dumb. I just don't get it.
P: Oh, come on, Yang Chen. It is like ballet in the water. In fact, the sport is sometimes called "water ballet". (Nutcracker music?)
Y: "Water Ballet" 水上芭蕾？噢，这下我明白我为什么不喜欢Synchronized swimming了，因为我不喜欢芭蕾！
P: Well, then I guess I am just going to have to show you how demanding a sport synchronized swimming is. Let's try to synchronize some of our moves.
Y: Do we have to, Patrick?
P: Yes, Yang Chen. We have to. Okay-- Raise your right hand in the air, then reach down and touch your left foot like I am doing, while lifting your right foot.
Y: So, I raise my right hand,抬起右手touch my left foot, 摸左脚，then lift my right foot. 抬起右脚。喂，喂Patrick, 你开什么玩笑。这太难了！I am losing my balance! Ooooh, noooo! (Splash!) Help!
