Mea Culpa: Chyby v textu

Závěrečné úpravy podle očekávání vyústily v občasnou informační disonanci. (Za každou chybu se samozřejmě hluboce kaju.)

— na jedné kartě je úplně dole v nápovědě slovo SERIOUS, ale jako ideální překlad jsem nakonec zvolil “Do you mean that?” namísto “Are you serious?”

— "Jde ti to skvěle..." má být vytučněno "Jde ti to skvěle" namísto "Vydrž."

* zatím dobrý

white 1-a

Leave me alone. Can’t you see I’m trying to focus? Scram.
Excuse me? You seriously think I should hear him out?
Can I interrupt you for a second here? — Sure. Go ahead.
Good job. I could never explain it so well myself.
You can’t be serious. How many times have I warned you?

Go ahead.      Sure.
Good job.
You can’t be serious.      You have got to be kidding me.      You’re joking, right?      Are you serious?
Leave me alone.      F*** off.
Excuse me?

white 1-b

Holy crap! Did you see that hornet? It was the size of a bat.
Apparently, he’s not interested in working for us anymore. — How come?
I mean it. If you don’t cut it out, I’m calling the police.
I was numb for almost a month afterwards. — Oh yeah? What’s it like?
Oh come on, take it easy. They were just messing with you.

How come?      Why would she do that?
What’s it like?
Holy crap!      Oh my God!      Jesus Christ!
Take it easy.      Calm down.      Chill.      Relax.
I mean it.      I’m serious.      I’m not kidding.

white 2-a

Oh stop it! You’re being ridiculous.
I miss you more than I do soccer. — Do you mean that?
Calm down. They’ll be fine. It’s not a big deal.
What’s it called? Does it even have a name?
You ok? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.

It’s not a big deal.      What’s the big deal?
Stop it!      Cut it out!      Knock it off!      Enough already!
What’s it called?      What do you call that?
You ok?      Are you all right?      Everything all right?
Do you mean that?      Are you serious?

white 2-b

You’re back from the interview already? How did it go?
Is everyone here? We got the tools ready? Ok, let’s roll.
Women are crazy about him. Get used to it.
I don’t get it. Why should it bother us?
Tell you what, let me pack you a change of clothes. Just in case.

Let’s do this.      Let’s roll.
I don’t get it.      I’m confused.
Just in case.
How did it go?
Get used to it.      Deal with it.      Suck it up.

white 3-a

Why are you wearing the green badge? — No reason.
I want there to be a movie about the case. Make it happen.
Let me ask you something. And don’t take it personally, please.
Oh, I get it now. You’re trying to get rid of me.
It would give you one more shot at this thing. — Ok, makes sense.

No reason.      For no reason.      No particular reason.
Make it happen.      Get it done.
Let me ask you something.      I was wondering.      Here’s a question.
Makes sense.
I get it now.

white 3-b

I really was going to tell her. I just couldn’t do it. I’m sorry.
There’s still some stuff you’re keeping from me, though. — Like what?
Do your parents still live in the same place? — Not anymore.
So what did you think? Is it as good as people say it is?
What’s the matter with him? Why does he keep insulting people like that?

Not anymore.
What did you think?
What’s the matter with him?      What’s wrong with him?      What’s his problem?
I couldn’t do it.
Like what?

white 4-a

What’s the point? They’re just going to keep denying it.
Are you done? If not, you don’t have to hand it in just yet.
Despite all that she still loves you, man. — You think so?
You did it! I’m so proud of you.
I put together an apology. — Let me see. Not good enough.

You did it.
Not good enough.      You’re going to have to do better that that.
What’s the point?
Are you done?      You done?
You think so?

white 4-b

When I go, she doesn’t. And vice versa.
I did it! And you all thought I couldn’t pull it off.
My wife and I are trying to get pregnant. — About time.
You have been cleaning his messes for years. Don’t you ever get tired of it?
What difference does it make? Either way, we’re done here.

What difference does that make?      What does it matter?      Who cares?
About time.      It’s about time.
Don’t you ever get tired of it?
I did it!
And vice versa.

white 5-a

It’d be nice if you remembered. But don’t worry about it, it’s not a big deal.
Listen, I was wondering if... you know what, never mind.
I tried it one time and it was awkward. — That’s too bad. You’d make a nice couple.
It never even occurred to me to call them. Do you want me to? I will.
Hey, don’t freak out. It’s fine. I did it, too. It’s no big deal, really.

Do you want me to?      Would you like me to?
It’s no big deal.
Don’t worry about it. It’s not a big deal.      It’s not that big of a deal.
You know what, never mind.      Forget about it.
That’s too bad.      That’s a shame.      That’s a bummer.      That sucks.

white 5-b

That girl’s parents did a great job raising her. — They sure did.
Problem is, I don’t like feeling insecure. — Who does?
One thing you need to know is that he’s a bit of a pig. — So am I.
You can’t lift a dishwasher. You’re not strong enough. — Well, neither are you.
That app of yours helps a lot of people. — Does it, though?

So am I.
Neither are you.
Does it, though?
They sure did.
Who does?      Does anyone?

white 6-a

Everyone seems to think she did it on purpose. — I don’t.
Oh my God, you’re so cute, sweetheart. — I am, aren’t I?
If you’re serious about it, I’d be willing to teach you. — I’d love that.
Hard work always pays off in the long run. — Does it really?
You guys were so lucky. — We sure were.

We sure were.      No doubt about it.      Oh, absolutely.
Does it really?      Does it, though?
I’d love that.      That’d be great.
I am, aren’t I?      I know, right?      Right?
I don’t.      Not me.

white 6-b

I hear she was really nice and a good person growing up. — I doubt that.
Turns out we’re one movie extra short. Wanna help? — Sounds great.
My mom’s such a drama queen. Every day is the end of the world. — Well, that sucks.
What do you think, was she able to get away? — Let’s hope so. We can’t do it without her.
But I’m not going to leave her alone with you. — Oh come on. That’s ridiculous.

That’s ridiculous.      You’re being ridiculous.
Let’s hope so.
I doubt that.      I doubt it.
Sounds great.
Well, that sucks.      That’s messed up.      Sorry to hear that.

yellow 1-a

Don’t give up. You’re doing great. Just one more hour. Hang in there.
Don’t mind me. Let me just grab some stuff and I’ll be out of your hair.
I’m not telling you shit. You’re a blabbermouth. — Fair enough.
Why are you even asking that question? — Just wondering.
Don’t worry, you can do it. You’ve been practicing since summer. It’ll show.

Hang in there.
Don’t mind me.
Fair enough.
Just wondering.
You can do it.

yellow 1-b

I’ll bring my credit card with me, though. Better safe than sorry.
I’m going to present a couple new ideas to him. — Don’t bother.
I can’t take it anymore. The lack of privacy, the stream of insults...
Isn’t that beneath you? — Possibly. But hey, it pays the bills.
An abacus? Seriously? Give me some credit, will you?

Better safe than sorry.      I’m not taking any chances here.
Don’t bother.      It’s pointless.
I can’t take this anymore.
Pays the bills.      Beggars can’t be choosers.      Puts food on the table.
Give me some credit.

yellow 2-a

Screw them. They wouldn’t lift a finger to help you, either.
So he lied to you one time. Big deal.
But the cold isn’t all bad. Like, I ... — Get to the point.
Calm down. I’m just messing with you. I’d never call you that.
I mean, you play with the young kids these days, right? — It’s not the same.

Screw them.      F*** them.      To hell with them.
Big deal.      Boo hoo.
Get to the point.
I’m just messing with you.
It’s not the same.

yellow 2-b

Don’t get too excited just yet. Things change at the drop of a hat.
But I certainly didn’t expect you to doubt me. — Can you blame me, though?
I believe I can get those two to make up. — Good luck with that.
You can’t outrun a bear. — Well, lesson learned.
Cognitive dissonance, eh? Sounds familiar.

Don’t get too excited just yet.      Don’t get your hopes up.
Can you blame me, though?      How could I not?
Good luck with that.      Yeah, right.      I don’t see that happening.
Lesson learned.
Sounds familiar.      Rings a bell.

yellow 3-a

I know, it could have been a lot worse. But still. It sucks.
Here’s what we are going to do. First, get some sleep.
So far I have put together about three sentences. — It’s a start.
Everyone did what they were supposed to do. What went wrong?
Why the long face? You did great.

But still.      Still, though.      Still.
Here’s what we are going to do.
It’s a start.      Gotta start somewhere.
What went wrong?      Where did it go wrong?
You did great.

yellow 3-b

So he’s experimenting. Nothing wrong with that.
Every road in the city is impassable at this point. — Tell me about it.
Don’t be ridiculous. Of course we all love you.
It makes the kids uncomfortable. — That’s the whole point.
I have a huge exam (coming up) tomorrow morning. Wish me luck.

Nothing wrong with that.
Tell me about it.      Don’t get me started.
Don’t be ridiculous.      Don’t be silly.
That’s the whole point.
Wish me luck.

yellow 4-a

Who did she go with anyway? — You don't want to know.
Don't worry about it, we'll fix it for you. — Thanks, I owe you one.
I would be much better off without you. — Likewise. / Same here.
Do apply, though. Worth a shot, right?
I'm going to make an amazing dad. What, you don't think so?

You don’t want to know.
I owe you.      I owe you one.
Likewise.      Same here.      Ditto.
Worth a shot.      Worth a try.
You don’t think so?

yellow 4-b

You of all people should pay attention. — Why is that?
When's our complaint going to be dealt with? — One thing at a time.
It's getting dark. Can we go? — I'm all set. Let's go.
You have nothing to apologize for. You did the right thing.
Oh give me a break. You've never even been to India.

Why is that?      How come?
One thing at a time.
I’m all set.      I’m good to go.
You did the right thing.
Oh give me a break.      Oh for crying out loud.

yellow 5-a

And then the other event fell through as well. That's just my luck.
Looks like there will be a kidney available. — Great. Fingers crossed.
Where are we supposed/going to get so much cocaine? — I got this.
Turns out they won't be pressing charges after all. — Whew. What a relief.
And you'll be stuck with the great-grandparents? — Looks like it.

That’s just my luck.      Story of my life.
Fingers crossed.
I got this.
What a relief.
Looks like it.      Apparently.

yellow 5-b

I don't get how you can settle for a rank and file position. You can do better than that.
Well, that's how it works around here. Suck it up.
We don't know which one of us was right. — What does it matter?
This is not easy for me to say, but... you don't have what it takes.
So what do you say? We could pull this off, right?

You can do better than that.
Suck it up.
What does it matter?      What difference does it make?      Who cares?
You don’t have what it takes.      You can’t do this.
What do you say?

yellow 6-a

What's the matter with you? Why are you lashing out like that?
Would you rather drink or drive tonight? — Depends.
This generation has never even heard of it. — That's a good point.
Holy crap! She punched him! Her own father!
How about fireworks and a plane with a banner? — That could work.

What’s your problem? / What’s wrong with you?
Good point.      That’s a good point.
Holy crap!      Holy shit!      Oh my God!      Jesus Christ!
That could work.

yellow 6-b

Wanna grab a beer after work? — Sorry, I wish i could.
Oh, grow up. Everyone I know is dealing with the same stuff.
And today he ran into her in a store. — It's a small world.
By that time you're here all alone, right? — Works for me.
A company like that can't be interested in her. — You'd be surprised.

I wish I could.
Grow up.      Get real.      What are you, ten?
It’s a small world.
Works for me.      I don’t mind.
You’d be surprised.

yellow 7-a

How do you know they copy from each other? — I can tell.
I was a little rattled by his attitude, to be honest. — Join the club.
If neither of us is married at that point, sure. — Ok. Deal.
That's more like it. All right then, I'm in.
The guy's totally winging it. — How can you tell?

I can tell.
Deal.      It’s a deal.
How can you tell?      How do you know?
I’m in.      Count me in.
Join the club.      That makes two of us.

yellow 7-b

Wow, that's impressive. I didn't think he had it in him.
I hear you're mooching off your parents. — Actually, it's the other way around.
But that must be so humiliating. — I'll live.
They promised to get back to us, but never did. Oh well.
Would you do me a favor? Explain to him that he can't come in.

Wow, that’s impressive.      I’m impressed.
I’ll live.      I’ll be fine.      I’ll survive.
Actually, it’s the other way around.
Oh well.      What are you gonna do.
Would you do me a favor?      Can I ask you a favor?

yellow 8-a

He says you're ruining his life? What a horrible thing to say.
They must love you where you work. — I wish.
Stay out of it. This has nothing to do with you.
You made it all the way to the top, right? — Just barely.
I do 500 squats a day. — It shows. / You can tell.

What a horrible thing to say.      Shame on (him).
I wish.
Just barely.
Stay out of it.
You can tell. / It shows.

yellow 8-b

What were you thinking? You were supposed to bring it in.
Ok, let's do this. At three, we'll let go of the rope.
Any complaints will be addressed directly to me. Understood?
And despite all that he was your best man? That's messed up.
I accidentally sent it to my whole address book. — These things happen.

What were you thinking?      Are you out of your mind?
Let’s do this.
Understood?      Is that understood?
That’s messed up.
These things happen.      Shit happens.

yellow 9-a

Hey, watch it! You almost scratched my car!
Careful. This spells trouble. — I'll take my chances.
I don't want your advice, keep it. — Your loss.
And I also want a new stove. — One thing at a time.
Just sign this piece of paper... and we're done. — That's it?

Hey, watch it!
I’ll take my chances.
Your loss.      Your funeral.      Suit yourself.
One thing at a time.
Is that it?      And that’s it?

yellow 9-b

Relax. Take your time. It'll be done when it's done.
This drawing is priceless! — It'd better be.
You'll always be the low guy on the totem pole here. Deal with it.
How are you going to finish it without us? — I'll manage.
Watch where you're going. — Sorry, my bad.

Take your time.
It’d better be.
Deal with it.      Get used to it.      That’s just the way it is.      Suck it up.
I’ll manage.      I’ll be fine.
Sorry, my bad.      Sorry, my mistake.

yellow 10-a

You're doing the right thing. Keep it up. We're rooting for you.
What the hell?! Are you spying on me in my own bathroom?
Why don't we do it a little earlier? — Fine with me.
There's no need to hurry, you're both young. There's time.
I'm out of here. I'm not talking to these people.

What the hell?!      WTF?!
Fine with me.
Keep it up.
There’s time.
I’m out of here.

yellow 10-b

What the hell possessed me to call her? What was I thinking?
Screw this. I'm taking a cab. This is ridiculous.
If you need help, give me a call. — Don't worry. I'll be fine.
People are looking at me. Do you want me to stop? — Keep going.
There's just too much information. — All right. Let's take five.

What was I thinking?
Screw this.
I’ll be fine.      Don’t worry about me.
Keep going.
Let’s take five.

yellow 11-a

So you'll get a B on your report card. What's the big deal?
Keep it short. We have to be there in an hour.
Take your time. I'm not going to need it until Friday anyway.
Hurry up, we need you here asap. — Gotcha. I'm on my way.
Relax. It'll pass. Most women feel that way before their wedding.

What’s the big deal?
It’ll pass.
Keep it short.      Make it quick.
I’m on my way.
Take your time.

yellow 11-b

Oh man. Why do I even bother?
Don't pressure her. It's a major decision. These things take time.
I'll reimburse you. It's the least I can do.
In the meantime they raised the price again. — Oh well. What are you gonna do?
Oh wow. I'm impressed. I didn't think she could pull it off, to be honest.

Why do I bother?
It’s the least I can do.
These things take time.
Oh well. What are you gonna do?
I’m impressed.      Kudos. That’s impressive.

yellow 12-a

On second thought, I think I'll join them. Is that ok? — Suit yourself.
But then it becomes totally pointless. — Good point.
Everyone, just keep working. Don't mind me.
You were way out of line. Yes, she's strict, but that was uncalled-for.
Thanks. I couldn't do it without you. I owe you one.

Suit yourself.
Good point.
You were way out of line.
Don’t mind me.
I owe you.      I owe you one.

yellow 12-b

Keep it down! Stop yelling! We’re putting our kids to bed.
Wanna play the new game? — I don’t know. Is it any good?
No, nothing’s wrong. I’m just checking in.
What’s (the deal) with the badges? Why’s everyone wearing one all of a sudden?
I can’t do this. You’re gonna have to do all the driving, I’m afraid.

Keep it down.
Is it any good?
What’s the deal with...?    What’s with the … ?
Just checking in.
I can’t do this.

yellow 13-a

Let’s get started, all right? We have a lot of catching up to do.
I’m coming with you. I want to see that. — No way. / Absolutely not.
She’s a teenager. — So? Doesn’t mean she has to act out. (can’t behave)
They had a $20 Hermes scarf. It’s a steal, right?
Halfway through the race, my belt fell off. — Happens all the time.

Let’s get started.
So?    And?    What does that have to do with anything?
No way.    Absolutely not.    Out of the question.
Happens all the time.    That’s not uncommon.
It’s a steal.    It’s a bargain.

yellow 13-b

You’re doing great. Hang in there. We’re all rooting for you.
I’m so glad she made the team. I’m really happy for her.
Careful now. (Easy now.) Watch your hands. And watch the steps, too.
Which one of them would you eliminate? — Huh. Let me think.
Where are you off to? — I got tons of errands to run.

You’re doing great.
I’m so happy for her.    I’m excited for her.
Easy now.    Careful now.
Let me think.    Let’s see...
Where are you off to?    Where are you headed?

yellow 14-a

Thanks, but I think I’ll get a delivery tonight. (I’ll order in) — Suit yourself.
Guess who’s hooked on contemporary Irish fiction? Me, that’s who! — Well, good for you!
Do you mind if I take your bike out for a spin? — Go ahead. / Knock yourself out.
I know what you mean. I also believe in lots of things. — Like what?
Sorry about last night, I was a mess. (not in a good state of mind) — Don’t worry about it.

Don’t worry about it.    It’s ok.
Suit yourself.
Go ahead.    Knock yourself out.
Good for you.    Good on you.    Well, more power to you.
Like what?    Such as?

yellow 14-b

My husband and I are getting a divorce. For real this time. — Sorry to hear that.
Is this what a midlife crisis looks like? — Pretty much, yeah.
Would you do me a favor and get everyone’s address? — You got it.
Do you want me to proofread it for you? — Oh, that’d be great.
Can you pick up the pace so I can get back to work? — I’m afraid not.

You got it.    Will do.    Consider it done.
I’m afraid not.
That’d be great.    That would be cool.    I’d like that.
Pretty much.    Kind of, yeah.
Sorry to hear that.    That’s a bummer.    That sucks.

yellow 15-a

Just go along with it. (play along.) It’ll be totally worth it. — It’d better be.
Bad news. I’m afraid I’ll be working late today, too. — That’s a shame. / That’s a bummer.
What if I hurt someone’s feelings, though? — Who cares?
Hey, why don’t you come see us play tonight? — I’d love to.
Thanks for helping me get rid of her. — Happy to help. / You’re welcome.

It’d better be.
Who cares?
That’s a shame.    That’s too bad.    That’s a bummer.
I’d love to.    Sounds great.
Happy to help.    You’re welcome. / Anytime.

yellow 15-b

Is there any way I could help you with that? — I’m afraid not.
Maybe they were able to get out of there. — I doubt it.
Don’t worry. This car’s not going to break down. — It’d better not.
Looks like they’re on to you. — I guess (so).
Wanna get a cup of coffee with me some time? — I don’t think so.

I’m afraid not.
I doubt it.
I guess.    I guess so.    Looks like it.
It’d better not.
I don’t think so.

yellow 16-a

The guy was staring at my cleavage the whole time. — Can you blame him?
It’s like he doesn’t have an off switch. — Nothing wrong with that. He’s a kid.
Let me sign you up. What’s your name again? — You know what, never mind.
Has it ever occurred to you that you could handle all this yourself? — What do you mean?
Why do you always come here and try to take over? — What are you talking about?

You know what, never mind.    Fuhgeddaboutit.
Can you blame him?
Nothing wrong with that.    Makes sense.    Of course he doesn’t.
What do you mean?
What are you talking about?    I’m not following you.

yellow 16-b

Sure, we could wear masks, but then no one would know it’s us. — Good point.
You know what they say, it ain’t over til it’s over. Hang in there. — I know. Still.
Dinnertime! Who’s setting the table today? — I know, I know. Coming!
Why would you study something you don’t enjoy? I mean, what’s the point?
That girl is way out of your league. — Excuse me? What’s that supposed to mean?

Good point.
Still.    Even still.    But still.
What’s that supposed to mean?
What’s the point?

Coming!    On my way.

yellow 17-a

So I posted a picture of the two of us. What’s the big deal?
You know what? I can’t take it anymore. I feel trapped here.
Vinnie and I are getting married! — Congratulations. I’m so happy for you guys!
Just fill out this report, please. — That’s it? That’s all you’re gonna do?
I said, no more fighting! What’s wrong with you people? Enough already!

What’s the big deal?    Get over yourself.
I can’t take it anymore.
That’s it?
What’s wrong with you?    What’s the matter with you?

yellow 17-b

He doesn’t love me, he just wants me for my money. I can tell.
Hey! What’s the matter with you? I have never seen you act like this.
That was supposed to be me on that stage. — Well, shit happens. Suck it up.
What? I don’t believe this. Are you saying there’s been a blackout again?
Of course the maps confusing. That’s the whole point. (That’s what it’s supposed to do.)

What’s the matter with you?    What’s wrong with you?
I don’t believe this.
I can tell.
That’s the whole point.
Suck it up.

yellow 18-a

So he looked at a girl. Big deal. I mean, it was your first date. — So?
There’s nothing wrong with that woman’s legs. — How can you tell?
And one last thing. You may want to brush your teeth more often. — You done?
Why don’t we just forget about presents this year? — Fine with me.
Why are you so interested in the guy’s name all of a sudden? — No reason.

No reason.    Just wondering.
You done?
How can you tell?
Fine with me.    I don’t mind.
So?    What does that have to do with anything?

yellow 18-b

You threw your best friend under the bus. What were you thinking?
Could you excuse us? We have a private matter to discuss. — Sure. Take your time.
I guess I’m not strong enough. — Give me a break. You’re the strongest guy I know.
Let me show you how to shut this thing off, before I leave. Just in case.
Ugh, why do I bother? You’re going to do it your way anyway.

What were you thinking?    Are you out of your mind?    What’s wrong with you?
Why do I bother?
Give me a break.    Don’t be ridiculous.
Take your time.
Just in case.

yellow 19-a

I would bring her over tonight so you two could discuss it. Would that be ok?
Maybe you’d like to tell me what I’m doing wrong here. — Do you really want me to?
Do you want me to take notes? I don’t mind. I’m happy to do it.
Why don’t you leave the dogs at home? They’ll be fine. — I’d rather not.
So, I hear you work at a brothel. I’ve never even been to one. What’s it like?

Would that be ok?    Would that work?
I don’t mind.    I’ll be happy to.
What’s it like?
Do you really want me to?
I’d rather not.

yellow 19-b

You want me to tell you about a dream I had? You were in it. — I’d rather you didn’t.
The guy is still running the Mob, even from prison. — What makes you think so?
Aren’t you curious to see if there’s a chapter about you? — There’d better not be.
There’s a new small part and I got you an audition. — Oh my God, are you serious?
Other than that, just keep on keeping on. It does get better. Hang in there.

I’d rather you didn’t.    Please don’t.
It’d better not.
What makes you think so?
Oh my god, are you serious?    You have got to be kidding me.
Hang in there.

yellow 20-a

Would you rather teach math or gym? — Either is fine. I really don’t mind.
My brother-in-law makes three times as much. — What does that have to do with anything?
What? I thought you’d gotten her off your back once and for all. — I wish.
Goddamn it! I almost lost my leg doing that! What was I thinking?
Honestly, you are making too much of a fuss about this. Just deal with it.

I don’t mind.
I wish.
Deal with it.    Suck it up.
What does that have to do with anything?
What was I thinking?

yellow 20-b

Do you think they’ll try to get back at you somehow? — I hope not.
I wonder, would you rather be married or single? — Depends.
I taught math at an art school for a year. — Oh. Sounds awful.
Look, white guys just aren’t as good at basketball. — How come?
Let me try something else. Here we go. Well? Is this better? — Not really.

I hope not.
Not really.
Sounds terrible.    Sounds awful.
How come?    Why is that?

yellow 21-a

I love taking care of kids, and I do it well. So stay out of it, ok? I got this.
Are you done? Or do you want to judge the plate it’s on as well?
We’re going to get rid of all that crappy art from when you were kids. — No way!
Just so you know, I’m never gonna ask you to do this again. Really, I mean it.
Screw this. I don’t need this. You think you can do a better job? You coach.

I got this.    Let me handle it.
No way!    Are you serious?!
Screw this.    To hell with this.
You done?
I mean that.    I’m serious.    I’m not kidding.

yellow 21-b

Could all of that really be a coincidence? — I don’t think so.
Are we still hanging out this weekend? Is that still on? — Absolutely.
Why don’t you all come to my house? I’ll make lasagna. — Sounds good.
It’s really none of your business. Leave us alone.
By the way, you might want to check tomorrow’s paper. — Oh yeah? Why’s that?

I don’t think so.    I doubt it.
Sounds good.
Why is that?    How come?
Absolutely.    You bet.
Leave us alone.

yellow 22-a

Ok, so it does count as a win then. — I guess (so).
Visiting my fiance’s family for the first time tomorrow. Wish me luck.
Don’t worry about us, honey. We’ll just stay at a motel. — Absolutely not.
What the hell? Get off him! What’s wrong with you? Stop it!
You keep getting asked the same questions. Aren’t you tired of it?

I guess so.    I guess.    Looks like it.    Apparently.
Absolutely not.    No way.
Aren’t you tired of it?    Aren’t you sick of it?
Wish me luck.
Stop it!    Knock it off!    Cut it out!

yellow 22-b

You thought getting married was going to fix everything? — Kind of.
I don’t care how you do it. Just make it happen. (Just get it done.) Tomorrow.
He might have had a heart attack on the way out of here. — I doubt it.
If they want to talk trash about us, to hell with them. Let’s get out of here.
Ok, here’s how it works. You have basically two options to choose from.

I doubt it.    I don’t think so.
Kind of.    Sort of.
To hell with them.    Screw them.
Make it happen.    Get it done.
Here’s how it works.

yellow 23-a

I don’t get it. Why would she want to work for someone she knows is a bully?
No, they’re right, the store is closing down. — You have got to be kidding me!
Just so you know, I don’t want our wedding to be like that. — Me neither.
How’s business? — It’s going great. Knock on wood.
Is everybody ok? Whew. What a relief.

Me neither.    Neither do I.
I don’t get it.
You have got to be kidding me.    Are you serious?
How’s business?
Is everyone ok?

yellow 23-b

Sorry, I didn’t mean to do that. You ok? — Don’t worry about it.
Hang on a second. What’s a ‘hashtag’?
Hey! Look me in the eye while I’m talking to you. — I’d rather not. (Do I have to?)
Why don’t we start right away? Let’s get it over with.
Do me a favor and help her carry it up, will you? — Happy to.

I’d rather not.
Don’t worry about it.
Happy to.    I’ll be happy to.    You got it.
What’s a “…”?
Let’s get it over with.

yellow 24-a

That’s wonderful! Good for you! But we don’t want to jinx it, do we?
Don’t worry about us. We got everything we need right here.
Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. — You’re welcome. Happy to help.
Wait, is that the time? Sorry, gotta go. Take care, you guys.
Why don’t we discuss it over coffee tomorrow? — Sounds good.

Don’t worry about us.
I really appreciate it.
Good for you!
Gotta go.    I really have to get going.    I need to be on my way.
Sounds good.    That could work.

yellow 24-b

Thanks for letting me play, you guys. — You’re welcome. Anytime.
Oh come on. What’s the big deal? It’s just one email.
He’s more experienced and he kicked your butt. Deal with it.
Why do I bother? No one appreciates what I do anyway.
Sorry, I wish I could help you. But this is a bit out of my wheelhouse.

What’s the big deal?    You’re making too big of a deal out of this.
I wish I could help you.    Sorry, can’t help you there.
You’re welcome.    Happy to help.    Anytime.
Deal with it.    Suck it up.
Why do I bother?

yellow 25-a

Do you want me to help you deal with it? — No, I’ll be fine.
My parents are in town and I was thinking maybe you’d like to meet them. — I’d love to.
Wanna join us for a game of Monopoly? — Sorry, I wish I could.
Here’s an idea. Why don’t you spend the night and ride with me tomorrow?
Would you do me a favor and drive them there? — Happy to.

I wish I could.    I’d love to, but I can’t.
I’ll be fine.
I’d love to.    That’d be great.
Here’s an idea.
Happy to.    You got it.

yellow 25-b

Serves them right. They were asking for it. Karma’s a bitch, eh?
You’re pretty confident, but ok. Bring it on.
Knock it off! You’re being very distracting.
I’d like you to deliver these today. That ok? — Do I have a choice?
Don’t worry, you’re gonna have a great time. — I’d better.

I’d better.
Bring it on.    Show me what you got.    Let’s do this.
Serves them right.    What goes around comes around.    They had it coming.
Knock it off.    Cut it out!    Stop it!
Do I have a choice?

Oh man, those kids are driving me bananas. — Ugh. Don’t get me started.
Why don’t you have an affair then? — Easier said than done.
He says he’d rather live out in the country. — To each his own, I guess.
By September we could be getting married. — One step at a time.
There’s fewer and fewer customers. — Why do you think that is?

Don’t get me started.    Tell me about it.
To each his own.
Easier said than done.
One step at a time.    Slow down there, cowboy.
Why do you think that is?

blue 01-b

The hell with them. We have done more then enough favors for them.
Hey, why don’t I borrow dad’s suit? — Don’t even think about it.
Ideally, she’ll confess. (come clean) — Nah. I don’t see that happening.
I wish I could be part of that. — What’s stopping you?
And this morning she moved out altogether. — Maybe it’s for the best.

The hell with them.    To hell with them.    Screw those guys.
Don’t even think about it.
I don’t see that happening.    Not gonna happen.
Maybe it’s for the best.    It’s just as well.
What’s stopping you?

blue 02-a

I think you’re betting on the wrong horse. — What do you care?
How about we ask them to help us out? — Out of the question.
She needs to get this information asap. — I’m on it.
I kind of hung you out to dry there. — It’s ok. No hard feelings.
A job, huh? Well, there goes my free weekend.

What do you care?    What’s it to you?
Out of the question.    Absolutely not.    No way.
I’m on it.    You got it.
No hard feelings.    Water under the bridge.
There goes (my free weekend).

blue 02-b

Here we go again. Another lecture on the importance of saving money.
Looking back, it probably was a mistake. But hindsight is 20/20.
The cars are all being recalled now. Good riddance, if you ask me.
I don’t want to be the reason you feel depressed. — Don’t flatter yourself.
Just leave it outside overnight. What’s the worst that can happen?

Here we go again.
Good riddance.    They won’t be missed.
Hindsight is 20/20.
Don’t flatter yourself.
What’s the worst that can happen?

The girl’s doing the best she can. Cut her some slack.
I hear they’re going to get you an assistant. — Can’t be soon enough.
Go get them! Destroy those bastards! Kick their asses from here to Timbuktu.
But there probably won’t be anything to sleep on. — Oh. That’s a bummer.
All of this is for me, I assume. — You wish.

Cut her some slack.    Don’t be so hard on her.    Go easy on her.
Go get them!    Give them hell!
Can’t be soon enough.
You wish.    Nice try.
That’s a bummer.    That sucks.

blue 03-b

You’re one to talk. You never even ran a business of your own.
Why did you think he was overpaying you? Do the math.
Eight years of expensive studies and what do I have to show for it?
Did he ever cheat on his girlfriend? — Not that I know of.
Why don’t you leave it here with us? — Yeah, might as well.

You’re one to talk.    Who are you to talk?
Do the math.
And what do I have to show for it?    And I got nothing to show for it.
Not that I know of.    Not to my knowledge.
Might as well.

blue 04-a

My brother? Top of his class? Wow. Go figure. / Who would have thought?
Our son fought back and punched the kid in the nose. — Attaboy.
So far I can do a minute. — That’s pretty good. Baby steps.
Come on, don’t leave us hanging. Who will you be playing for next year?
Remember, the kid is a star. — What does that have to do with anything?

Go figure.    Who'd a thunk it?
Atta boy.    Good for him.    That’s the spirit.
Baby steps.    One step at a time.
Don’t leave us hanging.
What does that have to do with anything?    And?    So?

blue 04-b

Hang tight. We’re working on getting you out of there.
Credit where it’s due. He may be a jerk, but he’s a natural at this.
Maybe he’ll put two and two together. But I’m not getting my hopes up.
Did you guys like the first tune I sent you? — We did. Keep them coming.
I think this means we’re doomed. — Not necessarily.

Hang tight.    Hang in there.
Credit where it’s due.    You gotta give credit where credit is due.
I’m not getting my hopes up.
Keep them coming.
Not necessarily.

blue 05-a

You’re not going to do this by yourself, are you? — What choice do I have?
What, set you up with her? No way. I wouldn’t dream of it.
A shot of whiskey? Can I skip this one? — Sorry, can’t be helped.
Hopefully I’ll get rid of the house soon. — Be careful what you wish for.
Hold that thought. I gotta take this call.

What choice do I have?    Do I have a choice?
I wouldn’t dream of it.
Be careful what you wish for.
Sorry, can’t be helped.
Hold that thought.

blue 05-b

What was the question? Oh, does he take drugs? Not that I know of.
And we only have three weeks to get it done? We got our work cut out for us.
Your wife runs her own business and supports you? I should be so lucky.
Hey! Language! You kiss your grandma with that mouth?
You wanna prove you can handle it better than I did? Knock yourself out.

We have our work cut out for us.
I should be so lucky.
Knock yourself out.
Not that I know of.    Not as far as I know.

blue 06-a

And you said yes to that? — Of course I did. Beggars can’t be choosers.
Also, I wasn’t enjoying myself. — What difference does that make?
We can keep our phones on the desk, right? — Nice try.
Ok, let’s get this over with. What is it that you need to know?
Takes some getting used to, sure. But pretty soon you won’t even notice it.

What difference does that make?    What does that have to do with anything?
Beggars can’t be choosers.
Nice try.    You wish.
Let’s get this over with.
Takes some getting used to.

blue 06-b

Cool. And I would also like a company car. — Don’t push it.
And next thing you know, he’s a minister. Makes you wonder, huh?
That’s kind of complicated, isn’t it? — Well, beats doing it by hand.
Could it be that they’re right about this? — Nah. It’s just sour grapes.
There’s something I’d like to apologize to you for. — Well, that’s a first.

Don’t push it.    You’re pushing it.
Beats ...
Makes you wonder.
That’s a first.
It’s just sour grapes.

blue 07-a

But I’m not getting a raise. — Oh well. Can’t win them all.
I wish I could get my hands on those scumbags. — Get in line.
We will have to change the name, though. — Small price to pay.
She’s going to complain anyway. Damned if I do, damned if I don’t.
I don’t get it. All it is is a faster sled. What’s the appeal/attraction?

Get in line.    You and I both.    That makes two of us.
Small price to pay.
Damned if I do, damned if I don’t.    I can’t win.
Can’t win them all.
What’s the appeal?    What exactly is the attraction?

blue 07-b

Get a move on, people. Chop chop. Move it. I haven’t got all day.
You got the ring and you have picked the venue. What’s the hold-up?
Was it just a hoax or were those actual aliens? The jury’s out on that one.
You haven’t been interrogated by this guy? Well, brace yourself.
Lighten up. I’m just messing with you. Don’t be so damn earnest.

Move it. / Chop chop.
What’s the hold-up?
The jury’s out on that one.
Lighten up.
Brace yourself.

blue 08-a

But the vet’s going to cost us an arm and a leg. — Comes with the territory.
If it wasn’t for me, she wouldn’t have been fired. — Don’t beat yourself up.
The best way to do this will be by slashing our prices. — Agreed.
I would rather she didn’t work here. — That can be arranged.
Serves you right. You got greedy and it came back to bite you in the ass.

Don’t beat yourself up.
Comes with the territory.    Can’t have one without the other.
That can be arranged.
Serves you right.    You were asking for it.    You had it coming.

blue 08-b

Our parents hate to see us fight all the time. — What do they care?
We have a yoga class later today. Is that still on? — Uh... raincheck?
Alternately, we could sell it to a museum. — I could live with that.
You know what, let’s agree to disagree on that one. Let’s move on.
And now I’d like you guys to shake hands. See? That’s more like it.

Let’s agree to disagree.
Raincheck?    Can we take a raincheck on that one?
What do they care?    What’s it to them?
I could live with that.
That’s more like it.    That’s the spirit.    Attaboy.

blue 09-a

Make it quick, all right? Throw out a number and let’s get busy.
You want to add a sauna, too? — Sure. Go big or go home, right?
And on top of all that, we had the accident. When it rains, it pours.
Can I bring my husband with me? — Of course. The more, the merrier.
I totally get why you don’t want to give her up. Been there, done that.

Make it quick.
When it rains, it pours.
Go big or go home.    In for a penny, in for a pound.
The more the merrier.
Been there, done that.

blue 09-b

Oh for crying out loud. What is it that’s bugging her this time?
I just want the people here to respect us. — That ship has sailed, I’m afraid.
And now I’m expected to take care of two more. Something’s gotta give.
No further changes unless they have been run by me. Understood?
I hear your party is going to join forces with the Greens. — Not if I can help it.

That ship has sailed.
Something’s gotta give.
Oh for crying out loud.    Oh for Christ’s sake.
Understood?    Capisce?    Are we clear on that?
Not if I can help it.    Over my dead body.

blue 10-a

She can be pretty talkative, yes? — That’s an understatement.
But once again, someone else got all the credit. Story of my life.
And they share the same name, too? Gee, what are the chances?
But I guess it won’t hurt to give it a shot. — Now you’re talking.
Will you find out where she lives now? — Yes. But it’ll cost you.

That’s an understatement.    (Talkative) doesn’t begin to describe it.
What are the chances?    What are the odds?    Go figure.
Story of my life.    That’s just my luck.
Now you’re talking.    That’s more like it.    That’s the spirit.
It’ll cost you.

blue 10-b

I may have one or two objections, though. — That’s a given.
What is it about me that people find so annoying? — Where do I start?
He ate all the food and fell asleep. Could it be him? — Sounds about right.
No one even knows we are here. — Let’s keep it that way.
But I’m not going to get her involved. That’s not how I roll.

Where do I start?    I don’t even know where to start.
That’s a given.
Sounds about right.
That’s not how I roll.
Let’s keep it that way.

blue 11-a

I think it’s genius. — I don’t know. Genius is a bit of a stretch.
What goes around comes around. He got what was coming to him.
I kind of missed the mark with this gift. — It’s the thought that counts.
But I haven’t seen Greg in... Who’s there? Well, speak of the devil.
Loosen up, man. You’re all wound up. Let me get you a drink.

What goes around comes around.    Karma’s a bitch.    Payback’s a bitch.
That’s a bit of a stretch.
Loosen up.
It’s the thought that counts.
Speak of the devil.

A weak wifi? Seriously? That’s the least of your worries right now.
I have never skated in my life. — Well, there’s a first time for everything.
It’s called The Grapes of Wrath. — Oh yeah. Rings a bell.
Sorry, no can do. Can’t snitch on a buddy like that. Nuh uh.
Mom’s crying, dad’s furious, Kev’s passed out. — I see. What else is new?

That’s the least of your worries/concerns.    You got bigger fish to fry right now.
What else is new?
There’s a first time for everything.
Sorry, no can do.    I wish I could help you.
Rings a bell.    Sounds familiar.

A party for the childless? I like the sound of that.
Come to think of it, my brother lives there and likes it. — Well, there you go.
I was sorry to hear you got evicted. — Well, it was a long time coming.
Free-spirited? That’s one way to put it, I guess.
How come no one has any idea we even exist? — You tell me.

I like the sound of that.    I’m intrigued.
It was a long time coming.
Well, there you go.    Well, there you have it.
That’s one way to put it.
You tell me.

blue 12-b

Well, that was a close call. We almost got caught.
But you made some poor choices, too. — No argument there.
Apparently, you can cure it with honey. — Says who?
Can I ask you a really dumb question? — Shoot.
A guest threw out a waiter? Oh man. What is the world coming to?

That was a close call.    We dodged a bullet there.
No argument there.    Guilty as charged.
Says who?
What’s the world coming to?

Don’t get your hopes up just yet. This can easily go south.
Are you relieved it’s over? — You have no idea.
You seem to be getting along great. Enjoy it while it lasts.
I see flowers, decorations, glasses. What’s the occasion?
Was it really a smart move to hire her? — Time will tell.

Don’t get your hopes up.    Don’t get too excited just yet.
You have no idea.
Time will tell.    I guess we’ll wait and see.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
What’s the occasion?

They left, huh? I can’t say I blame them, to be honest.
Suck it up and put up with her a while longer. — Easy for you to say.
You would make an amazing lawyer. — I don’t know about that.
And other times you’ll feel frustrated. Comes with the territory.
Get over yourself. Not everything has to revolve around you.

I can’t say I blame them.    Can you blame them?
Easy for you to say.
I don’t know about that.
Get over yourself.    Oh, cry me a river.
Comes with the territory.

That was a pretty low blow, man. You can do better than that.
Hey, watch your mouth. We go to that school too, you know.
Those three are beginning to get on my nerves. — Don’t get me started.
I think I’ll take my chances. After all, what do I have to lose?
Being the gullible person that I am, I fell for it. Lesson learned.

You can do better (than that).    That’s beneath you.
Watch your mouth.    Watch what you say.
Don’t get me started.    Tell me about it.
Lesson learned.    Not gonna do that again.
I’ll take my chances.    I’ll roll the dice on this one.

Relax. I got this. You go get some sleep so you’re well-rested tomorrow.
We will grade each other as fairly as we can. — Yeah, right. Nice try.
Outsiders aren’t supposed to understand. That’s the whole point.
That’s not how I would go about it. But to each his own, I guess.
Money’s tight these days, you see. But ok, I’ll see what I can do.

Nice try.
I got this.
To each his own.    Suit yourself.
That’s the whole point.
I’ll see what I can do.

You snooze, you lose. If you’d gotten here earlier, you would have gotten a discount.
Ok, so he probably got that off my report. What difference does that make?
Sure, there are some rough edges still, some kinks to work out. But it’s a start.
Hey, relax. I’m just kidding. I would never actually tell her.
I couldn’t agree more. You can’t do this unless you’re passionate about it.

You snooze, you lose.    First come, first serve.
It’s a start.
What difference does that make?    What does it matter?    Who cares?
I couldn’t agree more.
I’m just messing with you.

Thanks, but I’d rather not cut in front of anybody. — I insist.
Look, no hard feelings. You had to fire someone and you did.
I’m impressed. I would have had a nervous breakdown in there.
Of course it’s not a dream job by any stretch. But it pays the bills.
Didn’t you hear what I just told you? Knock it off!

No hard feelings.    We’re good.
I’m impressed.    That was impressive.    Kudos.
Pays the bills.    Beggars can’t be choosers.

Grab it, pull it through, tighten it. That’s all there is to it.
And now we’re asking you to repay the favor. Fair’s fair.
You’re the most stubborn person I’ve ever met. — Damn straight.
These schmaltzy tearjerkers aren’t really my thing. — Since when?
And the daily torture. How horrible. I can only imagine.

That’s all there is to it.
Damn straight (I am).    Damn right.
Fair’s fair.    It’s only fair.
I can only imagine.
Since when?

Pack your bags and get the hell out of here. Come on, move it.
Five minutes in front of your friends. How bad can it be?
I’m lowering myself into your chair... oh, I could get used to this.
So which one of us was right? Me, right? Yes! In your face!
How’s the shared household coming along? — So far so good.

In your face!
How bad can it be?    What’s the worst that can happen?
I could get used to this.

So far so good.

People in town are giving me a wide berth. — Nah. It’s all in your head.
Have you two talked it out? Cleared the air? — Not even close.
Maybe it’s time you faced this issue head-on? — Meaning... what?
You screwed up, man. — I know I did. No need to rub it in.
We should be totally honest with each other. — I couldn’t agree more.

No need to rub it in.
I couldn’t agree more.    Oh, absolutely.
Meaning... what exactly?    What’s that supposed to mean?
It’s all in your head.

We were only doing it to protect you. — What a load of crap.
Wow, you can hardly tell they’re not real. — I know, right?
And we could grab a beer before we go in. — Now you’re talking.
But I have already told all of my friends. — You what?!
Don’t worry, it won’t happen again. — I wish I could believe that.

What a load of crap.    Bullshit.
I know, right?    You can’t, can you?    What did I tell ya?
You what?    You have got to be kidding me!
Now you’re talking.
I wish I could believe that.    Why do I have trouble believing that?

They got what was coming to them. — My sentiments exactly.
I’m not following you. How exactly did I embarrass you?
You have to show them what you’re good at. — What’s that?
I’m going to drink you under the table. — We’ll see about that.
Maybe you’d like to give a speech. How about that? — Pass.

My sentiments exactly.    Couldn't have said it better myself.
I’m not following you.
What’s that?    Which is what exactly?
Pass.    Hard pass.    That would be a no.
We’ll see about that.

First, you’re all in, then all of a sudden you’re out. What gives?
Keep it bottled up and it’ll blow up in your face. I’ve been there.
You’re very naïve, or you’re a liar. Either way, shame on you.
Well, it did come from her computer. — That can’t be right.
Our daughter starts kindergarten this fall. — Time flies, huh?

What gives?    What am I missing here?
I’ve been there.
Shame on you.    You should be ashamed.
Time flies, huh?
That can’t be right.

Wow. I didn’t know you had it in you. Mom would have been so proud.
If I was your wife, then maybe. I’m not, though. — What’s your point?
It’s humiliating to just sit there and take the abuse. — No kidding.
Don’t you get it? They’re trying to take you for everything you’re worth.
You got some nerve. First you talk trash about us and then you...

No kidding.    No shit.
What’s your point?
You got some nerve.
I didn’t know you had it in you.    I’m impressed.
Don’t you get it?    Can’t you see what’s going on here?

Let me see if I can play it without sheet music. … Ok. Nailed it.
We’ve been over this before, haven’t we? Education comes first.
I made a total fool of myself. — It’s fine. Happens to the best of us.
Yes, Larry and I are still in touch. That’s beside the point.
How do you think we will do? — I like our chances.

I like our chances.
We’ve been over this.
That’s beside the point.    That’s neither here nor there.
Nailed it.    Knocked that one right out of the park.
Happens to the best of us.    These things happen.

Don’t be such a baby. Just suck it up and stop whining.
Lay off her. The poor thing has been to hell and back.
What, cat got your tongue? No more funny remarks?
Good job. I’ll take it from here. You go get some rest.
I’ll give everyone here a raise. — Ok. It’s your money.

Don’t be such a baby.    Oh grow up.
Cat got your tongue?
Lay off her.    Leave her alone.    Give her a break.
It’s your money.    It’s a free country.    Suit yourself.
I’ll take it from here.

Why don’t we spice it up a bit? — What do you have in mind?
It wasn’t me who blabbed. It really wasn’t. Scout’s honor.
I would like you to invite my ex, too. — Like hell I will.
But with her gone, this project stands no chance. Just saying.
We thought they’d throw in the towel, and they didn’t. Now what?

What do you have in mind?
Scout’s honor.    I swear.    I promise you.
Like hell I will.    No f***ing way.    Out of the question.
Just saying.
Now what?

It’s seven. Rise and shine, people. We have a bus to catch.
I’m not gonna steal money from the piggy bank. — You’d better not.
They go there to get free food? Seriously? Who does that?
Don’t call me a psychopath. — That’s not what I said.
I have my standards and this is over the line. I’m out.

Rise and shine!
I’m out.
You’d better not.
That’s not what I said.
Who does that?    What’s the matter with these people?

Hold still, please. This tube tends to fall out pretty easily.
It’s a no-brainer. Don’t tell me you still haven’t made a decision.
And on top of that, I gave her access to my account. Fool me once...
Would it kill you to wear a tie? Is that really such a big deal to you?
You’re being a little greedy here. Can’t have your cake and eat it too.

It’s a no-brainer.
Can’t have your cake and eat it too.    Can’t have it both ways.
Would it kill you to...?
Fool me once...    I was asking for it.
Hold still.    Stay still.

Don’t change the subject. We’ll talk about that later. This is about you.
Get real, man. That girl is way out of your league.
You’re both fired, effective immediately. — You can’t do that.
And the rest of the family hates me, too. Happy now?
I can’t believe what I’m hearing. You’re thinking of calling it off?

Get real.    Let’s not be kidding ourselves here.
Don’t change the subject.
Happy now?
You can’t do that.
I can’t believe what I’m hearing.    I can’t believe my ears.

Seems to me like you’re leading us on. (playing us) — Why would I do that?
Tell me. You know I won’t tell a soul. — Don’t make me laugh.
I’m so excited about the trip. I can’t wait. — Right. About that...
But I’ll get to spend a whole day with my son. Can’t put a price tag on that.
Except the next day it dropped back to zero. Oh well. Easy come, easy go.

Don’t make me laugh.    Do I look like I was born yesterday?
Why would I do that?
About that...
Can’t put a price tag on that.
Easy come easy go.

Hey, slow down. One thing at a time. The other stuff can wait.
But make it quick. My battery’s dying.
Get real. You’re not a nerd. Have you ever seen a nerd?
You know what, maybe it’s for the best. That’s money saved.
By the end of the day? Sounds like we have our work cut out for us.

Get real.
Make it quick.    Keep it short.
We have our work cut out for us.
Maybe it’s for the best.    It’s probably just as well.
One thing at a time.

It’s kind of depressing, sure. But I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
Now push it back. Nice and easy. Careful now. Easy does it.
You have to think long term. — Oh yeah? How’s that working out for you?
Way to go. You tore the whole thing out of the wall. God damn it.
It does sound like something I might enjoy. — Is that a yes?

How’s that working out for you?
Way to go.    Now look what you have done.
It wasn’t meant to be.    It wasn’t in the cards.
Nice and easy.    Careful now.    Easy does it.
Is that a yes?

One day I’ll get you to come to a soccer game with me. — Not a chance.
Back then there were huge crowds welcoming us. — Those were the days.
There was this tall redhead who... — Oh yeah. It’s all coming back to me now.
Oh no. Not again. You know how many shrinks I’ve seen on your account?
She didn’t even give you a hug on the way out. What’s that all about?

Those were the days.    Oh yeah, good times.
It’s all coming back to me now.
Not a chance.    Not gonna happen.    Don’t get your hopes up.
What was that all about?
Not again.

Who’s going to pay for all the drinks? — Actually, those are on the house.
Speak up, please. I have a hard time following you.
Should I write back and suggest that we meet up? — Sure. Go for it.
Let me just get some stuff. Make yourself at home. I’ll be right back.
Ok, here we go, wish me luck. — You can do this. Break a leg.

Speak up, please.
It’s on the house.
Make yourself at home.    Make yourself comfortable.
Break a leg.    Good luck.
Go for it.    Give it a shot.    Worth a try.

And in return, you’ll get to stay at our summer house. Do we have a deal?
Shall we? Don’t forget I have a train to catch and you’re on bedtime duty.
I haven’t even had breakfast yet. — Let’s get dinner then. My treat.
Let me drive over and we’ll go together. — Sounds like a plan.
Where were we? I seem to have lost my train of thought there.

Where were we?
Shall we?
My treat.
Do we have a deal?    Deal?
Sounds like a plan.    Sounds good.

I need to meet with her asap. — You’re in luck. She’ll be here tomorrow.
She’d appreciate if you let her know in advance. — I guess I could do that.
The guy bailed on us and left us high and dry. — Told ya.
We’re shopping for kids’ summer clothes. — Oh. Anything in particular?
Understood. All right, let’s do this. — Ready when you are.

You’re in luck.
I guess I could do that.
Anything in particular?
Told ya.    Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
Ready when you are.    I’m all set.
