2、to be unable to answer a question or solve a problem because it is too difficult.

 欧文点评:作为一部以女性为焦点的肥皂剧,《绝望的主妇》中的男性配角在这部剧当中活得很压抑、撇屈、很没有范儿。通常是处于被主导、被牵制的地位。我们从这一段Tom被老板辞退这段,可以看到他的命运完全不由自己把控。那个口口声声鄙视女人之间使用阴谋诡计操纵竞争和战斗的Lynette,有意无意地搅黄了大夫的职场升迁之路。基于对Tom的商业才能设定,做到公司副总裁的位置已经到了瓶颈。Tom自己在第一季第15集中坦言:”I am 41 years old. If I don’t make vice president now, it’s never gonna happen. This is my career. It’s important to me.”

而我们从Lynette在之前剧集中所展现的商业才能、处理问题的有效手段和之前同事的下面反馈来看,她才是那个在职场上如鱼得水、前途无量的广告界精英,为了让自己的三个顽皮的孩子平安过渡,她选择了牺牲自己的职业生涯,做起了全职家庭主妇,在抚养和陪伴孩子成长的过程中,尽到做母亲的职责。

我们从Tom公司的Spotless scrub清洁剂广告营销策划案例中,不难发现:Lynette非凡的商业才智、敏锐的洞察力以及对于职场生活的狂热倦念。

Tom vs Lynette

编剧对于Tom怒怼老板,愤然辞职和Lynette重返职场的剧情铺设可谓是下足了功夫。给人的感觉是:一切既在情合之中,又出乎意料之外。这里稍作解释:Lynette本打算通过Nat这层关系,为Tom找好下家,以切断他与旧爱Annabel死灰复燃的可能性,结果Nat坦言Tom不是她要找的得力干将。为达目的,Lynette紧接着顺手推舟把Annabel介绍给了Nat.

Tom的老板为了留住Annabel,不得不许以高薪要职,而Tom这个已经在接手副总裁职位的老将,突然得在被他引荐过来的新人手下做事,导致愤恨难平,他火冒三丈、理直气壮地去找老板理论,结果发现始作俑者竟是自己的妻子。整个剧情虽然相当的戏剧化,但是并不显得突兀和狗血,编剧对主要人物行事的手腕、情绪的渲染以及人性的思考方面可谓是精益求精,值得看官慢慢挖掘和细心品味。
