Am I right?

Yay! Lucky I watched 'Shindig' today, huh?

Not too tough, I don't think...

It's all cool.;)

Here's a big one:

...When there us arrives time, the patient is the blue and purple and, uh... is insensitive. We have attempted, but we cannot revive them -- to recover them -- although we are best diligently ... Them to kick.


XD I love the beginning of this quote, I had to put it up;P

"Ooh girl, you are so dirty..."
"Jayne, you're aware your radio's transmittin'? 'Cause I don't feel particularly girlish or dirty at the moment."

Easy:
by the time we got there, the patients were cyanotic and, uh non-responsive. We tried, but we
couldn't revive them, resuscitate them despite our best efforts. They kicked.

"Nothing worse than a monster who thinks he's right with God. We might turn [Burgess] away once, but he'll keep comin' -- won't stop 'till he gets what he thinks is his."

Easy peasy, but too funny to miss: "Leg. Oh. Must definite say this is her leg. You can invest that to strike but actually."

"The legs. Definitely would have to say it was her legs. You can put that down."

This one might be a bit harder:
"You saw the shape hanging lamp, it circles!"

Love keeps her in the air when she outta fall down, tells you she's hurting before she keels. Makes her a home.

"Kaylee, grab the kid who's taking a dirt nap with baby Jesus, we need a hood ornament."

Try this one: "That there? Accurate we could use this transformed."

I've decided these things fall into two categories: ones I get instantly, and ones I never get at all.

...and so, as our Translation Quote Game sinks slowly into the sunset (or at least off the first page), we bid a fond farewell to these hi-larious mistranslations of perfectly good, if idiomatic, English expressions.

Until the next time: aloha!
