翻译:静若处子,动若疯兔

Recommended Posts

From this section of 爱情公寓.

 

人们都亲切地用八个字来形容她:静若处子,动若疯兔。

 

Tried Google Translate, MDBG, and nciku.

 

Google Translate:

Static if the child

If crazy rabbit moving
 
My guess is:
Still as a disciplined child,
Moves like a crazed rabbit.
 
This is contradictory, which is why it gives me pause. If you watch a few more moments from the clip, you'll see that the "crazed rabbit" description is accurate, but perhaps "strict mother" would be better than "disciplined child".
 
 
Thank you in advance!
 
 
My best guess is that it's a typo in the subtitles and is supposed to be 致敬 or "Greeting Department".

Thank you, Ms. Zhou. You are the only one who responded, and I was quite curious about the phrase. :)

 

脱兔 does make more sense, however the actor clearly says " fēng tù ", and 疯兔 is written below in the subtitles. Also, the next scene is of this " 疯兔 " woman shouting at everyone like crazy, so perhaps it is a joke on the word 脱兔 !

 

 

谢谢!
