Kara: l've been looking all over for Lois.
Have you seen her?

Jimmy: You'll need a telescope.
New editor sent her to the City of Angels Los Angeles?
to get a quote from the DUl of the week. To take an interview from drunk drivers?

Kara: Bummer. Damn it?
l heard that she snuck into a grain silo
and took some videos of a spaceship.
l was kind of hoping l could sneak a peek. Take a look?
Bit of an ET junkie. She's into aliens?
Jimmy: Unfortunately, Lois' video's nothing
to phone home about.
Not so interesting?
Tech guy couldn't get anything off it but static. There was only blank screen?

Kara: Well, you know your way
around cameras, right?
You know how to operate a camera?
And l bet you're a lot smarter than he is.

Jimmy: What the heck? lt's not like l'm doing anything else
tonight. Yeah, l'll crunch a few pixels, Filter the video?

I take it I'm right on all the blues by the lack of relies.
Kara: Bummer. Damn it?

It's less severe than "damn it". More like "darn". "Damn" is a bad word, "bummer" isn't.

Almost like a blank screen.

The typical phrase is "crunch a few numbers". Meaning, do some calculations. He's modifying the phrase a little but basically he's going to take a look at the video and see if he can get it to work.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
The other little reference in there was the line about ET.

The movie ET was about a cute little alien and one of the lines in the movie was "phone home" so there is a play on words. "Nothing to phone home about" does mean "nothing special" but it played on that catch line from the movie.
Thank you, guys! So the first two blues are right then.
Yeah, except I don't know what the "DUI of the week" means. DUI does refer to drunk driving, but it's not clear what they meant. Perhaps another celebrity who was arrested for it?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I don't know. They never showed more about the DUI.
Anyway, thank you, Barbara!
