我很喜欢This Is Us，因为这就是生活最真实、纯粹、温暖的模样。
Robbie Weaver: Welcome, class of 2011. Our time as middle schoolers has
come to an end. We can’t fight it anymore, we’re getting old
[there’s mumbling of laughter from the crowd]
Robbie Weaver: All my life I wanted to grow up. I wanted to appear
older, so people would take me seriously. It all sounded so good to me.
Growing up, getting a job, getting married, but it’s all a scam. And
love, that’s the biggest scam of all. I was in love, and I…I know that
makes some of you laugh, cause I’m only thirteen. But, whatever, I was.
And I used to think, I really believed that there was one true love for
everyone and if you fought hard enough for that person, your one true
love would always work out. It sounded good to me when I younger, but it
just doesn’t work that way. There is no such thing as one true love.
suddenly Cal stands up from his place in the audience
Cal Weaver: Stop!
[everyone in the crowd turns and looks at Cal]
Cal Weaver: Shit!
[after interrupting Robbie’s speech Cal faces the crowd and looks at
the panel of teachers and notices Kate discreetly giving him the
Cal Weaver: Well, here’s the thing. My son’s graduation speech sucks.
That’s not a joke. In fairness, I didn’t know where he was going with
that, but I think we can all agree it was headed in the kind of
depressing um…way. My son, not him, my actual son believes in grand
romantic gestures. He believes in the existence of one soul mate. And
it’s easy to just look at a thirteen year old and say; ‘You don’t know
what you’re talking about. You are wrong.’ But I’m not so sure. I met my
soul mate when I was fifteen years old. We went out for ice cream. After
my dad started teasing me about my first date, the way dads do, and I
told him; ‘Dad, it’s no big deal. I’m gonna be going out with a lot of
different girls on a lot of different dates.’ And that is the first time
that I ever lied to my father. I met my soul mate when I was fifteen
years old and I’ve loved her every minute, every day since I first
bought her that mint chocolate chip cone. I have loved her through the
birth of our three perfect children. I have loved her, even when I’ve
hated her. You married couples will understand that one. And I don’t
know if it’s gonna work out, I don’t know what’ gonna happen.
[turns to Robbie]
Cal Weaver: I’m sorry, Robbie. I can’t give you that. But I can promise
you this, I will never stop trying. Because when you find the one, you
never give up.
Whatever ups and downs, or twists and turns, we can always find our way
back to life. And life will always spread arms to hold us tight and bond
us with our beloved ones. 想以此贴记录This Is

Us”。修改的冲动来自于重看William对How does it feel like
Lines I try hard to capture here are moments. Every single moment tells
a story about the past, the present or the future and it connects all
the people that are part of the immensity of life. Whatever it might
taste, I wanna feel the moment and seize it in my own life. That’s what
make me who I am and that’s what make “This is me”.
E01 #Dr. K Maybe one day, you’ll be an old man like me, talking a
younger man’s ear off, explaining to him how you took the sourest lemon
that life has to offer and turned it into something resembling lemonade.
If you can do that, you will still be taking three babies home from this
hospital, just maybe not the way you planned.
#Family – Dad: First came… – Kevin: Me! – Dad: And dad said… –
Kevin: Gee! – Dad: And then came… – Kate: Me! – Dad: And mom said… –
Kate: Whee! – Dad: And then came… – Randall: Me. – Dad: And we said –
Randall: That’s three. – Dad: Big three? – All: BIG THREE!
#Randall&Beth – Eight years ago, I was pregnant for the first time and
Randall was vying for partner at his firm. We just bought this house on
faith, even though it needed a lot of work, even though we couldn’t
afford it whatsoever. Then Randall made partner. He did all the work
himself in the house so we didn’t have to spend a penny. And he made
sure I didin’t lift a finger during my pregnancy. – He is a good man. –
No. He’s not good. He’s perfect. ….. – Randall is not free of vices,
William. His vice is his goodness. It’s his complusive drive to be
perfect. It’s why I love him, but it’s also why I have to protect him
#Kevin&Dad – Sorry, I shoud have been watching you. Okay? – You should
have. – And I said I was and I should have been watching you, pal. – I
know trying, okay? Look, I know that I’m bigger than you. I know that
I’m an adult, but… this is my first time, okay? This is my first time
too. I got three and I’m trying. I’m sorry. I should’ve been there and
I’m gonna be there, okay?
#Kate&Dad – I’m gonna go princess. – I want you to know that daddy
already sees you that way without the shirt, okay? You don’t need it. –
Thanks, daddy, but I’m gonna wear it anyway.
#Randall&Beth – You know, a son wouldn’t totall suck. – We do make good
kids. – That we do, that we do. – The girls will love it. – Oh, they’ll
go nuts. – Hey, who has two thumbs and loves his wift so much it hurts?
- Oh, it does work better with two thumbs. – Nah I like the way you do
it. – Mm. Well… I like your face. – Shall we do this? – (Nod)
#ThisIsUs Life is full of color. And we each get to come along and we
add our color to the painting. Even though it’s not very big, the
painting, you sort of have to figure that it goes on forever, in each
direction, like infinity. Coz that’s kind of like life, right? It’s
really crazy, if you think about it, isn’t it, that a hunderd years ago,
some guy that I never met came to this country with a suitcase. He has a
son, who has a son, who has me. So at first, when I was painting, I was
thinking maybe up here, that was that guy’s part of the painting and
then down here, that’s my part of the painting. And then I started to
think, well, what if we’re all in the painting, everywhere? And what if
we’re in the painting before we’re born? What if we’re in it after we
die? And these colors that we keep adding, what if they just keep
getting added on top of one another, unitl eventually we’re not even
different colors anymore? We’re just… One thing. One painting. I mean,
my dad is not with us anymore. He’s not alive, but he’s with us. He’s
with me every day. It’s all just sort of fits somehow, and even if you
don’t understand how yet. People will die in our lives, people that we
love. In the future. Maybe tommorrow. Maybe years from now. It’s kind of
beautiful, if you think about it, the fact that just because someone
dies, just because you can’t see them or talk to them anymore, it
doesn’t mean they’re not still in the painting. I thik maybe that’s the
point of the whole thing. There’s no dying. There’s no you or me or
them. It’s just us. And this sloppy, wild, colorful, magical thing that
has no beginning, that has no end, is right here. I think it’s us.
#Kevin – You have a lot of pickles. – I hate pickles. But he loves
them. Yeah, he eats them in bed. Ate. He is now past tense. He used to
be “is”. Now he is “was”. – Hey, I like pickles. – Good. Here. … – My
dad and I used to build model together, when I was a kid. We’d build
planes and boats. I used to pick the most complex ones, B-52s, aircraft
carriers, because they took the longest, you know? See, I was one of
three kids, so you really had to strategize to get your alone time with
dad. And then eventually, we had a whole fleet of them. We had just rows
and rows, shelves of them. And then when he died…when…when he died,
I, um, I threw all the models away. I threw every one of them away. I
don’t konw why.. why I did that. – You were how old? – Uh, it was a long
time ago. – I have this. This necklace, this is his and it’s the only
thing I have left of him. At first, I didn’t want to wear it. I wouldn’t
wear it. I wouldn’t even look at it, but now it’s… it’s all I have and
I can’t take if off now, so… – It’s okay.
#Kevin – Why are you mad at me? – Because we shouldn’t have been here.
This is not a play. She’s a real person. I’m a real person. – Yeah, I
can see that, maybe for the first time. What happened to you? – What
happened to me is my dad died. That’s what. And I hated him for it. And
I couldn’t eat for a month, and I used to wake myself up crying, so I
could cry myself back to sleep again. That’s what happened. – Why do you
push all of that away? You can’t just kill the feelings, like they’re
creature that you’re afraid of. That pain is a part of you. I can see it
now. I can feel it.
#Dad&Randall – Why are you pretending not to know all this stuff, huh?
Getting B in maths? And not letting everyone see how smart you are? – I
don’t want to be different from them. – Different from who? The kids at
school? – If I get an A, I’ll get ice cream and Kate and Kevin won’t and
then they will hate me. – Can I be honest with you? Man to man? You
know, your mom and me, we always try to treat you kids same. Always
have. Hasn’t always worked, because, well, you are not all the same.
You’re adopted, and we don’t talk abou it that enough. Becuase to me,
you are every part of my son. Maybe I don’t want you to feel like you
stand out. But I need you to know something. I want you to stand out. I
want all of you to be as different as you can possibly be, in all the
best ways. I love you as much as a human heart can, kiddo. You are an
exceptional yound man.
#Kevin&Randall – You’re right. Mom did favour me. She did. Showered me
with attention. Took my side often than not. And I ate every bit of her
love up. Ate it up like Pac-Man. You know why? Because the one person I
wanted it from the most… You know, back there with those people, it’s
the first time in36 years, you’ve said the words, “He’s my brother.” –
Come on, Randall, that can’t be… – Claiming me. My brother.
#William – How does it feel to be dying? – It feels like all these
beautiful pieces of life are flying around me and I’m trying to catch
them. When my granddaughter falls asleep in my lap, I try to catch the
feeling of her breathing against me. And when I make my son laugh, I try
to catch the sound of him laughing, how it rolls up from his chest. But
the pieces are moving faster now and I can’t catch them all. I can feel
them slipping through my fingertips. And soon where there used to be my
granddaughter breathing and my son laughing, there will be nothing. I
know it feels like you have all the time in the world. But you don’t. So
stop playing it so cool. Catch the moments of your life. Catch them
while you’re young and quick, because sooner than you know it, you’ll be
old, and, slow. And there’ll be no more of them to catch. And when a
nice boy who adores you offers you pie, say thank you.
#Jack&Rebecca – I am thankful for my family. I’m thankful that
everyone’s safe. And there is no one in the whole world I’d rather be
too hot or too cold with.
#Rebecca – She has three wilding different kids, along with their own
sets of problems. Our marriage wasn’t always perfect. I certainly
wasn’t. And she had her own things to deal with, too. But she kept
everything out. She always made sure we were all safe.
#Dad – Randall, how old are you, son? – Nine. – Nine years old. Fine
age. – Do you think you have a good life? – Yes, I think so. – Good.
Good. I hope you always have a good life. But as you get older, you
might start to find that things get harder. The world isn’t always a
kind place. Especially… for men like us… (Look to Jack) As Randall’s
father, you’re his foundation. Come lie down, as if you’re gonna do a
push-up. Randall, climb on your father’s back. Jack, your back was built
to carry your son through life. Are you willing to hold him up no matter
what comes his way? – Yes. – Show him. – Good. Now keep going. – Are you
willing to raise this yound boy into a strong man? – Yes. – Are you
willing to push him to be the best man in the world he can be? – Yes.
(We need to be enough for him – Rebecca) – Are you willing to lift him
to greater heights, even if it hurts? – Yes. – You can stop. I think
it’s enough. – No, I won’t. (Dear William, I’m sorry for the pain it may
cause, but… you cannot meet Randall. This is for the best for him.
Because he has an extraordinary father who gives him everything he
needs. I hope you take comfort in knowing just how loved Randall is.)
#Rebecca Nothing bad will happen on Christmas Eve.
#Dr. K – I take it you’re Randall. – My dad said you’re the reason they
adopted me. So thank you. – Oh would you look at that. That’s a fine
snow globe. I love that. Thank you Randall. But you know, the only thing
I did that day was nudge a man in a direction he already wanted to go.
If at some point in your life, you find a way to show somebody else the
same kindness that your parents showed you, that’s all the present I’ll
#William Now I can’t even say for sure if it was real, but like him, I
knew in general, if you’re out on the street at 3:30 in the morning, at
some point, you realize you made a very wrong turn. So I stopped the
drugs and learned to tame the wildness from the inside, until I could
eventually walk in the daylight. That’s why, when a man knocked on my
door one day, I was there to open it. I don’t know if it was from God or
what. I did not expect God’s grace. But now I had to open myself to the
pain of it, to feel the joy of it. And that’s a word we use around the
holiday times: joy. Coz the holidays are hard times. But tonight I’ll go
back to my son’s house, have Christmas with his beautiful family and
stay up late enough to feel Christmas Eve turn into Christmas day, one
亚洲城，E12 #Rebecca I’ve been acting out lately. I’ve been terrible to your
dad, who is just perfect. He is so perfect. Oh my god, you guys are
going to freak out when you see how awesome your dad is. Honestly,
you’re gonna be huge fans. #Rebecca I’m impatient. I’m stubborn. I’m
terrified that I’m gonna make a hundred wrong decisions and ruin the
chances that you guys have to lead the perfect lives that you deserve,
but.. I will protect you fiercely. And I will always sing to you when
you can’t sleep. And I will always be excited to hear you laugh. I bet
you guys are gonna have wildly different laughs, huh? I love you so much
it hurts, and I haven’t even met you yet. It’s crazy. So I guess
what…I’m trying to say is, um… you are gonna to have to take the
good with the bad when it comes to me.
E13 #Randall – Bud, I’m sorry that more people didn’t come to your
birthday party. I bet they wanted to come but they probably had other
things going on that they couldn’t get out of. – No, they didn’t.
They’re just not my friends. But I don’t care. I have three really good
friends. That’s a lot. And they all came to my party.
E14 #Migual We stopped noticing each other. We stopped trying to make
each other happy. When we realized that, we know it was over.
#Jack&Rebecca – Rebecca, saying I do means saying I will. I will love
you today and every day for the rest of my life. I’ve been trying to
focus on all of the little moments that I don’t want to forget. But the
moment that burned into my brain and heart is the first time I saw.
Rebecca, you have changed the way I think about love. I know things may
not always be easy, but our love has always been worth it. I will
encourage you, trust and respect you. I will create a home with you,
full of laughter and compassion. I will raise a family with you. I will
grow old with you. I will share my dreams with you. So, today, in front
of everyone here, I pledge myself to you. – Jack, I fall a little bit
more in love with you every day. In you, I have found my soul mate, my
best friend, my lover, my partner, my safe place. You are my greatest
love story. And Jack Pearson, our story is just getting started.
E15 #Kate&Toby – I love learning that about you. – I love telling you
that about me. #Migual&Kevin You remind me of him. You know that? The
way you move your hands when you talk. The way you walk aross the room.
Sometimes you remind me of him so much that the hair on my arm stands
up. That’s why it breaks my heart that you don’t like me, Kevin. Because
when I’m around you, I feel like I get a little piece of my best friend
back. Now, you are Jack Pearson’s son. You have him inside of you. When
you are nervous or you’re at your most nerve-racking moment – the
curtain’s about to go up – all you have to do is remind yourself of
that. Think about what he’d do and you will be fine.
E16 #Randall&William – What was he like? Your father. – Larger than
life, I guess. He had this really great laugh. It’s like when he
laughed, like it almost surprised him, you know? Like it surprised him
that he could laugh so freely. #Randall&William – I’m gonna call Beth.
I’ll have the girls here hugging you within hours. – No, no, no. I sail
goodbye when they were laying down. I want them to remember looking up
at me, not down. Up. Man, that was a hell of a thing you did, knocking
on my door that day. – Come on, man. – Roll all your windows down,
Randall. Crank up the music. Grow out that ‘fro (formula). Let someone
else make your bed. – I like making my damn bed, old man. – Then you
make it. You deserve it. You’ve deserve the beautiful life you’ve made.
You deserve everything, Randall. My beautiful boy. My son. I haven’t had
a happy life. Bad breaks and bad choices. A life of almosts and
could-haves. Someone would call it sad, but I don’t. ‘Cause the two best
things in my life were the person in the very beginning and the person
at the very end. That’s a pretty good thing I’d be able to say, I think.
- I think so, too. – I’m a little scared. – You’re okay, dad. You’re
good. Just breathe. Come on, now, breather with me. There you go. There
E17 #William Dear Tess and Annie, I know you’re probably feeling a
little sad right now, and I’d like to get you back to smiling, because
you have two of my all-time favourite smiles. That’s why I’d like you
two to plan my memorial. Adults make these things sad, and I want you
two to make it fun. Fill it with things that make you smile, and make
sure your mom and dad help you execute your vision. No questions asked.
#Rebecca&Randall – I love you, mom. – I love you more. – I love you
most. #Randall You see, for days, I’ve been thinking about the question
“How do I honor my father’s legacy?”. Then I realized, I honor it by
taking what I’ve learned from how he lived his life and having it shape
the way I go on living mine. And so, here it is. I quit. I came. I saw.
I conquered. (What are you gonna do?) I don’t know. Maybe instead of
running in the morning, I’ll go for a walk. Slow it down a little. Talk
to my mailman. That seems like a good way to start the day. #William
Told you I’d sent you a postcard. Goodbye, my dearest Beth. The daughter
I never had. Love, William.
E18 #Jack&Rebecca – What do we tell the kids? – Tell them the truth,
that we had a fight and that we both need a minute to catch our breath.
- We are gonna screw them up. – No. No, we’re not. The kids are gonna be
fine. We’ve shown them a healthy marriage. This is just gonna be a blip
on their radar years from now. We are their parents, Bec. We do the best
we can, but at the end of the day, what happens to them, how they turn
out, that’s bigger than us. Sometimes, they’ll make good decisions.
Sometimes bad decisons. And every once in a while, they’re gonna do
something that’s gonna knock us off our feet, something that exceeds
even our wildest dreams. Our kids’re gonna be fine. But me, I can’t go
back to who I was before I met you. I mean, we all want to own the whole
thing in the end, right? You asked me a question before. What is it that
I love about you now. So I’m gonna start with the obvious. I love the
mother that you are. I love that you’re still the most beautiful woman
in any room. And that you laugh with your entire face. I love that you
dance funny, and not sexy, which makes it even sexier. But most of all,
I love that you are still the same woman who, all those years ago, ran
out of a blind date because she simply had to sing. You’re not just my
great love story, Rebecca. You were my big break. And our love story, I
know it may not feel like it right now, but baby, I promise, it’s just
