At last Herr Klueber returned, announced that dinner would be ready in half an hour, and proposed their employing the interval in a game of skittles, adding that this was very good for the appetite, he, he, he!
Наконец г-н Клюбер вернулся, объявил, что через полчаса обед будет готов, и предложил до тех пор поиграть в кегли, прибавив, что это очень хорошо для аппетита, хе-хе-хе!

('Now,' thought Mr Boffin, 'if he proposes a game at skittles, or meets a country gentleman just come into property, or produces any article of jewellery he has found, I'll knock him down!'
("Ну, - подумал мистер Боффин, - если он предложит мне сыграть в кегли, или познакомиться с джентльменом из провинции, недавно получившим наследство, или купить у него случайно найденную золотую цепочку, я ему дам в ухо!"

Skittles he played in masterly fashion; as he threw the ball, he put himself into amazingly heroic postures, with artistic play of the muscles, with artistic flourish and shake of the leg.
В кегли он играл мастерски; бросая шар, принимал удивительно молодцеватые позы, щегольски играл мускулами, щегольски взмахивал и потрясал ногою.

But you," breathlessly recovering his mildness of speech as Judy readjusts the cap on his skittle-ball of a head, "you, my dear Mr. George, are likely to have some letter or paper that would suit the purpose.
Но у вас, – он снова сбавляет тон, еле переводя дух, в то время как Джуди поправляет ермолку на его голом, словно кегельный шар, черепе, – у вас, дорогой мистер Джордж, наверное осталось какое-нибудь письмо или документ, которые нам пригодились бы.
