Often, things lead up to one moment known as the moment of truth. You may have been studying for weeks, but the test is the moment of truth. Maybe you have been planning for months to ask a girl you like on a date. When you finally talk to her, that’s the moment of truth.

The moment of truth is the time when you can wait no longer. You must take the test. You must make a decision. You must either succeed or fail.

These last weeks, Devan has been planning to offer Amanda a job. Meanwhile, Mason has learned that Vanessa is cheating on him. Suddenly, everyone finds themselves in the office, and at the moment of truth, at the same time.

通常事情会一直发展到关键时刻。你可能已经学习了数周,但是考试就是关键时刻。可能你准备了好几个月,想跟喜欢的那个女孩约会。当你最后告诉她的时候,那就是关键时刻。

关键时刻就是你不能再等下去的时刻。你必须考试。你必须做决定。你必须成功,或是失败。

最后几周,德凡一直计划给阿曼达安排一个工作。同时梅森发现瓦内萨在欺骗他。突然,办公室的每个人都在同一时间发现自己处在关键时刻。

Devan:  Thanks so much for coming down, Amanda.

Amanda:  Oh yeah, totally. No problem. The pleasure was actually all mine.

Devan:  Well, I brought you here because I wanted to tell you that the job is all yours. Congratulations!

Amanda:  Thank you. I’ve gotta be honest with you. I just don’t know if I can work with someone I love that I can’t have.

Mason:  Trust me, you get used to it.

Vanessa:  Oh, hi. I didn’t…

Mason:  You didn’t what, Vanessa? You didn’t expect me to be here? Well, I am here. We’re all here, and that makes this the moment of truth. I’ve heard there might be some things happening behind my back, and I want to know about them!

Devan:  Yeah, I want to know about them too. And, Amanda, I want to know if you’re going to take the job or not because I’ve got a lot of other applicants to call back if you’re not.

Amanda:  Well, this is kind of like the moment of truth, you know? I mean, if you’re cheating on you, I might actually have a chance at getting back together with Mason, so, I don’t know.

Vanessa:  Can’t we talk about this another time?

Dale:  Yeah!

Jason:  No!

Devan:  This has to be decided right now.

Devan offers Amanda a job. Amanda says she is not sure if she can accept because she doesn’t want to work with Mason if she can’t have him back.

Just then, Vanessa walks in, and Mason confronts her about cheating on him. Amanda says this is the moment of truth. All will be decided now. If Amanda has a chance of being with Mason, she will take the job. If not, she will leave.

Vanessa asks if this can be discussed later. Everyone agrees that it cannot.

What do you think will happen next? When was the last time you found yourself at the moment of truth?

I find the future tenses in English language as being the most easy of all. There are not many confusions among them. I read few important lines about that on this custom writing service resource, it really helped me see things a lot better.

I love it when the moment of truth happens. i finally figure out what is gonna happen to me. for instance, when i take a test and i see my score, that is the moment of truth. oh wow! i wonder what will happen! i hope mason will still accept vanessa and love amanda! the moment of truth can be very exciting if you don’t know whats gonna happen. but it wouldn’t if you know you’ve done something bad, something very, very, bad…
