"Adiós Saigon! Así es, soy historia ... Me voy de aquí. Tengo el boleto de la suerte en casa, mantenlos en carretas rodadas, cuero crudo! Sí, así es ... la transmisión final ... y esta es presentada por nuestros amigos en el Pentágono. ¿Recuerdas a las personas que te trajeron Corea? Así es, el ejército de los EE. UU. Si se está haciendo correctamente, aquí o en el extranjero, es probable que el Ejército no lo haga."

"Goodbye Saigon! I am now history. I am leaving this place. Got complaints about crude language. This is my final broadcast...something something…"

Am gonna go out a limb. This must Robin Williams in "Good Mourning Vietnam" when his character, the radio personality guy, gets kicked off the air by the Army brass for being too edgy, and he is bidding farewell to his listeners.

Correct! :)

The actual quote is:

"Good bye Vietnam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army."

Your turn!

It's from Jaws and the quote is: "You're going to need a bigger boat."

"En serio, mi amor, no me importa."

Its the "single greatest line every spoken in cinema" according to AFI!

For the whole time weve been doing this I have been trying to figure how to translate this from the American English idiomatic original (SO idiomatic that its makes no literal sense in English). You beat me to it. Not a bad way to translate it. I notice that you swapped out the lady's name for the phrase "my love" because her name would be a dead giveaway. I was toying with renaming her "Rosalita" ( kinda the same thing as "Scarlet"). But your solution works well. :D

Its Clark Gable to Vivian Leigh at then end of "Gone With The Wind"

"Frankly Scarlet I Don't give a damn".

Correct! :)

Clues for this quote:

This quote is from a cult film often called "The Citizen Kane of bad movies."

The director is often compared to Ed Wood.

The movie's production budget was $6 million, but nobody knows where the money came from.

"ME ESTÁS LAMENTANDO, LISA!"

Okay. It has to be from "The Room". The notoriously good bad movie of the early 2000s.

"Me" (pronounced "May") is just "me" in English. Its the object, and not the subject.

"Lamentando" looks a lot like our word "lament".

So I am guessing that its: "You made me sad, Lisa", or "You hurt me, Lisa".

You got most of it right! :wink:

The actual quote is (caps lock intentional) is when Johnny accuses his girlfriend Lisa for cheating on him.

"YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!"

Your turn!

You still there?

This is not from a movie, but is the intro to a TV show that ran for about three seasons in the 1970s.

"Buenas tardes, y bienvenidos a una muestra privada de tres pinturas, que se exhiben aquí por primera vez. Cada uno de ellos es un elemento de coleccionista a su manera, no por ninguna cualidad artística especial, sino porque cada uno captura en un lienzo, suspendido en el tiempo y el espacio, un momento congelado de una pesadilla."

"Are you crying?

Don't you know that the first rule in baseball is 'No Crying'?".

In "A League of their Own" directed by the late Penny Marshall. Said by Tom Hanks to (I believe) Geena Davis.
