PAGE 3 (Four panels)

Panel 1: ELIZA FANSHAW (“Eliza”) sits in a big wicker chair in a kind of hippie-ish apartment. She’s a bubbly-sexy blond girl. She wears thin cotton tie-dyed shirt that stretches a bit over her breasts (she’s obviously braless) and a floral skirt and sandals. Her posture indicates she’s being interviewed.

Eliza (1): People ask me, “What on earth do you think you’re doing, Eliza?” and “Don’t you know you have your whole life ahead of you?”

Comment (1): The material in quotation marks are things that Eliza has been hearing about her plans and which she is quoting back to the interviewer. The expression “what on earth” is a figurative expression meant to express incredulity or surprise. It shouldn’t be translated literally – substitute an equivalent expression if one exists in the target language.

Translation (1): Die Leute fragen mich “Was denkst du eigentlich, was du da tust, Eliza?” oder “Weißt du nicht, dass dein ganzes Leben noch vor dir liegt?”

Eliza (2): And I see their point but, the thing is, about me…

Translation (2): Und ich weiß, was Sie meinen, aber es ist so…

SUBTITLE (3): Eliza Fanshaw, prospective subject.

Translation (3): Eliza Fanshaw, Potenzielle Versuchsperson

Panel 2: Close-up on Eliza’s smiling face, which should emphasize that she has a cute little snub nose.

Eliza (4): …is that I think that the most amazing thing about being alive…

Translation (4): …ich finde einfach, dass das absolut Beste am Leben…

Eliza (5): … is sex!

Translation (5): …Sex ist!

Panel 3: View of Eliza (in very soft focus, to the point that we can scarcely identify her as Eliza) naked, seen from behind on top of a guy).

CAPTION – ELIZA NARRATING (6): I’m not supposed to say things like this, but ever since I was fifteen, I have been seeking out sexual adventure.

Comment (6): “Ever since I was fifteen” is short for “ever since I was fifteen years old.”

Translation (6): Ich sollte das wohl nicht sagen, aber seit ich fünfzehn war, suche ich sexuelle Abenteuer.

CAPTION – ELIZA NARRATING (7): I’ve even acted in some experimental adult films, just to see what it would be like.

Comment (7): “Adult films” here is a semi-euphemism for pornographic films, or at least films with explicit sexual content.

Translation (7): Ich habe sogar bei einigen experimentellen Erotikstreifen mitgespielt, einfach um zu erfahren, wie das so ist.

Panel 4: Eliza, back in the same pose as in Panel 1.

Unseen interviewer (out-of-panel balloon) (8): And what was it like?

Translation (8): Und wie war es?

Eliza (9): It was awesome!

Translation (9): Es war fantastisch!

Eliza (10): But I don’t think anything could compare with those movies I saw in Anthro.

Comment (10): “Anthro.” This is a colloquial way for Eliza to say that she saw the movies in a college-level class in Anthropology.

Translation (10): Aber nichts kann mit den Filmen mithalten, die ich in den Vorlesungen zur Anthropologie gesehen habe.
