In the worst wayDesperately and with an extreme desire. (非常迫切、极度渴望)

Narrator:Since she was a little girl, 苏珊·梅尔

——>> And from the first day 从她把茱莉从医院

——>> she brought Julie home from the hospital… 带回家的第一天起

——>> she was. 她确实做到了。

这里的“In the worst way”是一个双关语,它的字面意思是“以最坏的方式”,还有一层意思是:极度渴望。注意这里的“she was”出现得很诡异,通过情节诠释,它表达了两层意思:

  • Susan的确是极度渴望扮演好母亲的角色,
  • 但她却是以最糟糕的方式做砸了。

NarratorDespite her desire to do well by her daughter… 尽管她非常渴望好好照顾她的女儿

No room for sthIf you say there is no room for a feeling or type of behaviour, you mean it is not acceptable. (做某事是不被接受或行不通的)

以“Despite”开头的让步状语从句加上肯定结构“Of course”渲染气氛,再通过“but”引导的原因状语进行转折,为引导下面的精彩演出作铺垫。
