Don't even start.

啥意思啊?


broke its fall = stopped it from falling further =  阻止了它的下跌

I guess the mother was saying "The bigger the better" sarcastically, actually trying to say "礼物不是越大越好的". So the husband warned her  "别找架吵"

看明白在哪里?是否可以把意思梳理一遍给我们听听?

世上就怕“认真”二字,I'll try my best:

Is my present okay?
(你给)我的礼物没事吧?

Don’t worry, I broke its fall.
别担心,我没让它掉下来。

Are you okay?
你没事吧?

I’m fine. The sidewalk broke my fall.
我没事。我没摔到。

What is it, Dad?
是什么呀爸爸?

It’s heavy when you’re under it.---这句应该说还有点不理解
你在下面的时候很重。

The bigger, the better.
(讽刺地说)越大越好。

How big?
多大?

Don’t even start.
别找架吵。

You’re the one who started it.
你先吵的。
我能做什么?

好像不是很通。
Is my present okay? 应该是说:我的礼物准备好了么?OKAY 应该是好了的意思吧?
sidewalk 怎么解释?为何这么说?BREAK ONE'S FALL 是防止跌落,摔倒的意思。是否有双关呢?暗示礼物是什么。
It’s heavy when you’re under it. 是否也是暗示礼物是什么。
所以,妻子要补充说,The bigger, the better.
还是说,丈夫一直强调带这个礼物来是多么辛苦,又怕被摔坏,又差点自己被摔倒,这么重。然后妻子就讽刺他,就这点事情也叫苦,所以说,再重点,再大点的礼物更好,累死你。
所以,丈夫就说妻子找架吵,妻子就说是丈夫先挑起的,带个礼物来还说这说那。不过,这样理解,好像漫画就没有幽默感了,只是描绘一种现状。
