Sarah:
I’ll get it!
Hey, Tsutomu!
Wow!
It’s cold outside.
Tsutomu:
Tell me about it! 
Can I come in?
Sarah:
Of course.
Tsutomu:
Thank you so much for inviting me, Sarah!
My parents are really happy that I have a friend like you.
Sarah:
A friend … .
Tsutomu:
Is something wrong?
Gary:
Honey, is that Tsutomu?
Tsutomu:
Hi, Gary!
Gary:
Come on in before you catch a cold.
Thank you so much for coming, Tsutomu!
Welcome to your first American Thanksgiving dinner!
Tsutomu:
Wow, it sure smells good.
Monica:
It does, doesn’t it?
Come on.
Let’s eat.
Tsutomu:
All right!

RoboCorpus'Eye
Wow!
I want to spend Thanksgiving in America, too.
Then I can have delicious turkey as well.
Oh, right.
I’m a robot.
I don’t eat.

Tsutomu:
Hey, Sarah!
Are you keeping warm?
Sarah:
Yes, Tsutomu.
Thank you for asking.
I have a question.
Do you celebrate Thanksgiving?
Tsutomu:
Not really.
Sarah:
Do you want to come and celebrate Thanksgiving with us?
Tsutomu:
Sure, but... I thought Thanksgiving was celebrated by families.
Sarah:
It is, but we would like you to celebrate with us as our guest.
Tsutomu:
Wow, thanks.
I’d love to come!
Sarah:
Great!
Come over at about 4 p.m.
The turkey should be done by then.
Tsutomu:
Why don’t I come earlier?
I can help you all in the kitchen.
Sarah:
Don’t worry about it.
Just come on over.
Tsutomu:
Great!
I’ll see you tomorrow, Sarah.
Sarah:
See you tomorrow!

RoboCorpus'Eye
Oh, Boy!
Tsutomu gets to spend his first Thanksgiving in America.
They should be a lot of fun.
I hope he eats a lot.

Mr.Rowland:
So, what is everyone going to do for Thanksgiving?
Amber:
Eat turkey with my family.
Sarah:
Me, too.
Pa:
Hmongs don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but we do at my house.
Monzong brings the turkey over, and I prepare it.
Thanks to him, I’m getting interested in turkeys.
Jose:
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Mexico, either, but we still eat turkey.
If it tastes great, why not?
Mr.Rowland:
Amiir.
What about you?
Amiir:
We’re Muslim, so we celebrate Mawlid.
Mr.Rowland:
What is that?
Amiir:
Well, we do everything from singing to gathering with family members.
So, it’s like Thanksgiving, only… it’s not.
Jose:
Hey, This is America.
Everyone is free to celebrates in their own way.
Mr.Rowland:
How right you are!

RoboCorpus'Eye
Wow! Everyone’s got their own plans for Thanksgiving.
I’m sure they will all enjoy time with their families!

Mr. Rowland:
Morning, class.
As you all know, this week we are celebrating Thanksgiving.
Does anyone know the meaning behind Thanksgiving?
Sarah:
One second.
According to this website, it began as a day of giving thanks for the harvest, and for the previous year.
Families get together to give thanks to each other and show their support for one another.
Mr. Rowland:
That’s correct, but next time, try answering without checking the Internet.
Amiir:
Well, we're all from America, Mr. Rowland, so we just accept the holidays for what they are. I’m sure there are many English holidays you don’t know the history behind.
Mr. Rowland:
Well, that’s not quite… You’re right, Amiir.

RoboCorpus'Eye
Amiir is right.
If you’re from somewhere, you accept everything around you.
That’s just human nature.
Hmm... I wonder what a robot nature is.

Tsutomu:
Hi, Grace!
I just finished my report for tomorrow’s show.
Take a look.
Grace:
“On December 7th, 1955, St. Paul and Nagasaki became the first American and Japanese cities to heal the wounds of war by becoming sister cities, with the help of the United Nations.
This created a friendship that has lasted for over 60 years.
When I went to the Charlotte Partridgee Ordway Japanese Garden in Como Park, I could see this friendship.
Thank you, St. Paul, for welcoming me as your guest.
I am proud to live in the first American city with a sister city in Japan.
St. Paul is in my blood, and Japan is in St. Paul’s blood. ”
This is perfect.
Thanks!
Tsutomu:
You’re welcome!

RoboCorpus'Eye
Great job, Tsutomu!
It’s good to feel proud to be in a city like St. Paul.
I should develop friendships with American robots now!

Jose:
Wow, Amber!
Your manga is really coming along!
Amber:
Thanks!
I’m spending all my free time on this.
Pa:
Is it a love story?
Amber:
Sort of.
The main character, a teenage girl, likes a boy in her class.
At first, they don’t get along , but they slowly start to get to know each other.
In the end, she falls in love with the boy because he knows so much about so many things.
Pa:
I’ll bet.
Knowledge is attractive.
Jose:
You think?
Pa:
Mm-hmm.
Don’t you think so, Sarah?
Sarah?
Are you OK?
Sarah:
Huh?
Oh.
Yeah, I’m… I’m fine.
Is this boy Tsutomu?

RoboCorpus'Eye
Great, Amber!
You seem better balancing with school and passion than Amiir.
Let’s hope he can learn to do the same!

Amiir:
So, Wanda, I want to ask you…
Wanda:
How I juggled comedy and academics, right?
Amiir:
How did you know?
Wanda:
Every aspiring comic in school goes through that.
You're not the only one.
Amiir:
I know, but... I don’t want to go to school anymore.
This is what I want.
Wanda:
Amirr, you have your whole life to pursue comedy, but you only have seven more months before you graduate.
Just be patient.
Graduate, and then you can focus all your time on comedy.
One job at a time.
Every job a success.
Amiir:
Why does that sound familiar?
Wanda:
Probably because you’ve heard it before.

RoboCorpus'Eye
Just like Sarah, Wanda also believes in “One job at a time. Every job a success!".
Great minds do indeed think alike!

Amiir:
Thank you, everyone!
You’re an amazing crowd.
I’m Amiir Mahad.
Good night!
Jose:
Amirr, that was so funny!
Pa:
How do you even come up with these jokes?
Amiir:
I spend every hour of the day thinking of them.
Jose:
Yeah, I think Mr.Rowland is getting annoyed about that.
Amiir:
I know, but I can’t help it.
I only get to perform once a month.
I have to make it count.
Wanda:
Hey, Amiir.
Amiir:
Wanda!
Thanks so much for coming.
I really need your help right now.
Wanda:
Sure thing!
Ask away.
Jose:
We’ll be on our way.
Great job, Amirr!
Amiir:
Thanks!

RoboCorpus'Eye
I’m glad Amiir’s stand-up comedy is going well, but I'm worried about him paying little attention in class.
Maybe Wanda can help.

Jose:
That’s really good, you guys!
Monzong:
Thanks!
Pa and I wrote it last week.
It will be our first single.
Jose:
That’s great !
Good luck with that.
Monzong:
Thanks!
Pa told me you still haven’t heard anything about your scholarship.
Jose:
Yeah.
I don’t know if I can wait until March.
Monzong:
Listen, Jose.
Go ahead and apply to a few colleges, and ask them for financial aid.
Remember, one way or another, you will be going to college.
So, explore as many options as you can.
Jose:
OK.
I really appreciate your help, Monzong.
Monzong:
No problem.
So, do you want to join Pa and me for some malts?
Jose:
Let’s do it!

RoboCorpus'Eye
Great advice, Monzong.
It is important to explore as many options as possible.
Jose, you’re still in high school, so do as much as you can.

one way or another:いずれにせよ

Pa:
Hey, guys.
Look who I brought.
Monzong:
Jose!
Great see you.
Welcome to the Pov Pobs’ rehearsal!
Jose:
The Pov Pobs?
Pa:
Pov pob is a common game among teenage Hmongs.
A boy and a girl toss a ball to each other.
The player who drops the ball has to give the other player something.
To get the given object back, the player has to sing a love song to the other player.
Jose:
Sounds like a great game.
We should play it on one day.
Pa:
Um…
Jose:
Sorry.
It was just a joke.
Pa:
Oh, OK.
Shall we start playing?
Monzong:
Yeah.
Let’s do it!

RoboCorpus'Eye
The Pov Pobs’!
That’s quite an interesting name!
If I started a band, what would I call it?
Hmm...how about "The Corpus Quartet"?
