To live in Australia permanently is rather like going to a party and dancing all night with one's mother.

在澳大利亚永久居住,就好比参加一个聚会,和母亲跳一整晚的舞。

I'm approaching 70. Unfortunately, from the wrong direction.

我快70岁了。不幸的是,我走错了方向。

What is extraordinary about the character of Edna - and I speak as though I am completely outside this character and I am talking to you - I'm, as it were, in the wings, and she's on stage, and every now and then she says something extremely funny, and I stand there and think: 'I wish I'd thought of that.'

埃德娜这个角色有什么特别之处——我说话的时候好像完全置身于这个角色之外,我在和你说话——我,就像是,在翅膀里,她在舞台上,时不时地她说一些非常有趣的话,我站在那里想:‘我希望我能想到这一点。’

Now the point of comedy is not just looking funny, it's use of language. We have at our disposal a great language... and the imaginative, creative use of that language can be at the service of humour.

现在喜剧的重点不只是看起来滑稽,而是语言的运用。我们有一门很棒的语言。。。而这种语言的富有想象力和创造性的运用可以为幽默服务。

Glamour comes from within. My beauty regime begins with my personality.

魅力来自内心。我的美丽始于我的个性。

In Edna, I created a satiric portrait of my hometown of Melbourne, a large provincial English city paradoxically in far Southeast Asia. She's a theatrical figure, related to vaudeville in some respects. She inhabits a world in which there are comparatively few female exponents of comedy.

在埃德娜,我为我的家乡墨尔本创作了一幅讽刺性的肖像画,这是一座位于遥远东南亚的英国大城市。她是个戏剧人物,在某些方面与杂耍有关。她生活在一个女性喜剧倡导者相对较少的世界里。
