a family yet right?
小弟啊,你不明白的啦,你没有家人要养,对吗?

My name is Wendy. How about you?

73
00:03:34,560 –> 00:03:38,920
爱好或许能带给人微笑

74
00:03:38,920 –> 00:03:42,360
但微笑不能让你生存

75
00:03:46,640 –> 00:03:49,080
(十分钟后到,会给现金)

76
00:04:00,280 –> 00:04:04,840
但你一旦牺牲了爱好

77
00:04:08,680 –> 00:04:13,480
你永远不会再微笑

78
00:04:13,560 –> 00:04:16,640
I just got my private hire driving licence
我刚考到了私人租车驾照

79
00:04:24,840 –> 00:04:29,760
饭碗或许能让你生存

80
00:04:33,960 –> 00:04:38,760
但你会为那微笑而活

81
00:04:39,560 –> 00:04:44,080
让你的生命驱动你的爱好,不要让爱好驾驭你的生活

82
00:05:07,200 –> 00:05:08,640
You sure you remember how to drive or not?
你还记得怎么驾车吗?

83
