Why did I come here?
The script of this programme 本节目台词
Feifei: Hello everyone. Hello Rob. I'm here.
Rob: Oh, hello Feifei. What are you doing here?
Feifei: You told me to come by. Here I am and... well, why do you need me here?
Rob: Well Feifei, I wanted to... I needed to.. well... you had to come here because...
Rob: I don't know! My mind's gone blank!
Feifei: Your mind's gone blank! 你脑子突然一片空白？我真是服了，你把我叫过来，就告诉我这个？
Rob: Yes. When you say 'my mind's gone blank' it means that suddenly you've completely forgotten what you were about to do or say. Here are some examples of how to use this phrase.
I didn't do well in the job interview. When they asked me why I wanted to work there my mind went blank. I wasn't sure why I'd applied for that particular job at all!
Alan failed the exam. He studied hard but when he got into the classroom to take it he was so nervous that his mind went blank. But he is a good student so his teacher might give him a second chance.
Rob: Yes! Yes! That's it! I remember it now!
Rob: I called you here for us to present Authentic Real English!
Feifei: Great, Rob! So I can leave now.
Rob: Why do you want to leave?
Feifei: Because the programme's finished. 节目做完了，还不走？
Rob: How come?
Feifei: “My mind's gone blank 脑子一片空白”就是本期《地道英语》教给大家的表达。
Rob: I see. OK.
