triangle Language Review (idioms)


Directions: 1) Read the script and choose the idiom or phrasal verb that best matches the meaning of the underlined expressions. 2) Listen again and check your answers.

  • Look, I don't encounter (come across) many words in the field other than "Hyah!" or "Giddy up!" But that rat's always bringing (dragging in) trash with writing on it.
  • I agree. It's about time Templeton started doing more work (pulling his weight) around here instead of just eating it. I bet he could bring us some choice words.
  • I've got a choice word for you. A little word called, "Uh-uh."
  • Well, that's two words.
  • And here's a few more. Negative. No way. Nothing doing. I ain't doing a lot of work (breaking my back) to try and save "some pig," no matter how "terrific" you think the little lunch meat is.
  • You'll change your mind (sing a different tune) when he's gone and nobody brings around those scrumptious buckets of slop.
  • And three, two... Cue the rat!
  • Let's agree on one point (get one thing straight) . I don't care about the pig. What I care about is the slop.
  • Of course.
  • And since I'll be at the dump anyway, and it won't take any extra effort, maybe, maybe I'll bring something back for you (pick something up) .
  • You're very kind.
  • Don't go telling everyone about it (spreading it around) . What? What do you want?
  • You'll need your strength.
  • Thanks.
  • "Radiant." This might just work.
  • Might? Oh, for the love of Lucy!
  • Here it comes. It did this yesterday. Look that way, everyone! Right towards that cloud!
  • Good gracious. Has it always done that?
  • No, it can't have.
  • Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!
  • Wow!
  • Oh, yes. This word will work quite nicely.
  • Then my work is done. And now for the fruits of my labor. And the vegetables! And the gravy!

Templeton: I've got a choice word for you. A little word called, "Uh-uh."

Charlotte: You'll sing a different tune when he's gone and nobody brings around those scrumptious buckets of slop.

Sheep: And three, two... Cue the rat!

Templeton: Let's get one thing straight. I don't care about the pig. What I care about is the slop.

Charlotte: Of course.

Templeton: And since I'll be at the dump anyway, and it won't take any extra effort, maybe, maybe I'll pick something up.
