Feifei
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。Hi Rob, how are you?

Rob
Hi Feifei… I'm fine but I just can't understand why you've brought me to a railway station.

Feifei
Isn't that obvious?

Rob
No. And what's that piece of paper you're waving in your hand?

Feifei
Oh this? 我手里拿着一张票。 

Rob
A ticket. Why would you bring me to a railway station and show me a ticket? It's cold and we could be in a warm studio presenting this programme. And anyway, don't you know it's my birthday and we're supposed to be going out to celebrate later?

Feifei
我知道是你的生日,你上周告诉我了,你还说要一个“just the ticket”的礼物。这不,我就带你来车站了。

Rob
Oh Feifei – I didn't want a ticket – when I said 'just the ticket' I meant I wanted something that was exactly what I wanted or needed: A camera, a computer game or maybe a nice bottle of whisky.

Feifei
啊,原来是这个意思。Just the ticket 这个短语实际要表达的意思是“正是所需要的东西,求之不得的东西”。我觉得可以这样理解帮助我们记忆:比如过年回家“一票难求”,终于买到票后感叹“This is just the ticket!这正是我想要的票!” 

Rob
Oh dear, what a wasted trip Feifei. Now we're here, let's hear some more examples of this phrase 'just the ticket'.

Examples
Oh I feel terrible: I've got a cold and my nose is blocked but a drink of hot honey and lemon would be just the ticket to make me feel better.

I think a new art gallery will be just the ticket for improving the image of the town and encouraging more people to visit.

Our car has got seven seats, so it's just the ticket for taking all the kids to football practice every week.

Feifei
好了,just the ticket 就是本集节目中介绍给大家的表达。它可以用来表示一件正是某人想要的或需要的物品。OK Rob, so you wanted something for your birthday that was 'just the ticket' – well you're looking at it.

Rob
You, Feifei?

Feifei  
No Rob. This ticket in my hand - have you actually looked at it?

Rob
OK let me see… Wow! A train ticket to Paris, for me? That's really generous of you. Thanks Feifei! When do we go?

Feifei
We? No, it's just one ticket – I couldn't afford two. Now look, the train's about to leave so you had better go. 祝你玩得开心!

Rob
Oh right. Well I will be off then. See ya. 

Feifei
Bye Rob. Phew, two days in the office without Rob – that is just the ticket for me!
