    What does “Earth to Rachel” mean?

    如 taboleh 所說, "Earth to Rachel" 引用自太空用語, 確為要引起 Rachel 注意, 要開始談話的起頭語.

    中文譯為: 呼叫 Rachel

    "Earth to (NAME)" 在日常生活中用作呼叫某人, 像是有人 (Jimmy) 在作白日夢, 你可以說 "Earth to Jimmy, Earth to Jimmy, wake up!" (呼叫吉米, 呼叫吉米, 醒醒吧!), 或是當有人提出不切實際的建議, 你可以說 "Earth to Jimmy", 藉以提醒他 (Jimmy) 回到現實吧.

    It's probably originated from movies on NASA space missions, but don't quote me on this.

    For example, "13, Houston. Jim, we just had a bottoming out on your biomeds."

    "13" identifies the addressee, and "Houston" identifies addresser. The rest is the message to Jim on Apollo 13.

    In this question, earth identifies addresser (very much in the same way Houston is used), and Rachel is the addressee. You can think of it as "from Earth to Rachel." It's just a way to get Rachel's attention to start a conversation.
