Clip 3

Once upon a time, there were four little rabbits. Their names were... Flopsy, Mopsy... Cotton-tail and Peter. 'Now, my dears, said old Mrs Rabbit one morning, 'you may go into the fields or down the lane, 'but don't go into Mr McGregor's garden.' 'Why not, Mother?' 'Because your father had an accident there. He was put in a pie by Mrs McGregor.' Peter, who was very naughty, ran straightaway to Mr McGregor's garden, and squeezed under the gate. But round the end of the cucumber frame, whom should he meet, but Mr McGregor! Peter was out of breath and trembling with fright, and he had not the least idea which way to go. Mr McGregor caught sight of him at the corner, but Peter did not care. He slipped underneath the gate and was safe at last in the wood outside. When Peter came home his mother put him to bed with a tablespoonful of camomile tea. But Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail had bread and milk and blackberries for supper.
This book, it's changed things for me, Mr Warne.
How so?
For one thing, it's given me the chance to prove to my mother that an unmarried woman of 32 can do more than attend tea parties and smile at dull conversations.
-Yes, indeed. You know, my family never wanted me to get into publishing either. We do make rather a good team, don't you think?
Provided, of course, we prove them wrong.

“Peter was out of breath and trembling with fright, and he had not the least idea which way to go.” 彼得喘不过气,惊惶得全身颤抖,完全不知道该跑往哪个方向
Tremble To shake, as from excitement, weakness, or anger; quake. 因激动、虚弱或生气等原因而不由自主地抖动;
I tremble at the very thought of it. 我一想到这件事就不寒而栗

“For one thing, it's given me the chance to prove to my mother that an unmarried woman of 32 can do more than attend tea parties and smile at dull conversations.” 其中一样,它给了我机会,向我母亲证明…一个32岁的未婚女子能够做的,不光是出席茶会…对着无趣的会话面带微笑;
Dull  Arousing no interest or curiosity; boring  乏味的:
a dull play. 一出乏味的戏
