P: Let's go sailing, Yang Chen.
Y: Sailing，玩帆船，太棒了。哎呀， 是要坐这条破船去吗?
P: No, it's not a破船. It only has a few small holes. And besides, I have you to help me bail it out.
Y: You are not serious.
P: I'm serious. The 'bail out' I'm talking about is when water comes in the boat and we take it out, because if we don't it's going to sink.
Y:你是说，因为这条船上有窟窿， a few small holes，所以要我一直不停地往外舀水。
P: That's right, Yang Chen. But you can also say you bailed someone out any time you help them avoid a disaster.
P: Then the government bails them out.
P: A boat's flag is called its colors. The flag gives other boats information about what kind of boat it is, like where it is from.
Y: Hmmm, 那我们应该挂一块破布。
P: Why our flag should be be a piece of rubbish?
P: Very funny. Let me tell you something about flags. You know, sometimes pirate boats put up a fake flag to disguise themselves. Then when they attack, they put up a pirate flag.
P: Well, you've got two eyes, Yang Chen.
P: So when people pretend to be one thing but then they reveal their true character, you can say they showed their true colors.
Y: Hey, Patrick, 我们挂一面海盗旗怎么样?
P: So we are not just go sailing, we are going to attack another ship?
Y: Show me the money!
P: You showed us your true colors.
