Gill knocks on the neighbors' door
C: You're the downstairs neighbor--Gill, right? How's it going?
A: Could be better. Would you mind keeping it down?
C: I'm sorry. We're working as fast as we can to get it done.
A: We can't get any shuteye down there. And Sunday is our only day to sleep in.
C: All right. I'll start later, at ten, OK?
A: Actually, I don't think it's appropriate to make noise like that on a Sunday.
C: I can't do it any other day. I'll be done soon. Don't worry.

A: 可以更好的。能不能请你小声一点?
C: 我很抱歉。我们正在努力尽快搞定。

C: 好吧。我晚点再开始,十点,可以吗?

重点解说:

★ keep it down 小声一点,保持安静
★ can't get any shuteye 不能睡觉。get some shuteye是「睡觉」的口语说法
★ sleep in 睡懒觉,睡到比平常晚
★ appropriate (a.) 适当的,合适的
