  • handsome = bonito
  • how would you like to be my partner...? = o que você acha de ser meu parceiro...?

Shroder: Forget it! We hockey players wouldn’t be caught dead in a pair of those tippy toe skates.
Lucy: And a Merry Christmas to you, too!

  • we wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of those skates = [literalmente, não seríamos encontrados mortos em um par destes] não usaríamos estes patins nem mortos

  • tippy toe = [forma informal de se dizer "tiptoe"] na ponta dos dedos [Shroder usou o termo como adjetivo, então seria "patins para andar nas pontas dos dedos"]

Rerun: We really didn’t talk that much. He seemed pretty busy.

  • how did it go? = como foi?

Lucy: I don’t know, Linus. To me, ‘Oh, Susannah’ just doesn’t sound very Christmassy.

  • it doesn't sound very Christmassy = não parece muito natalino; não tem um som muito natalino
