"I am going to give them an offer they can't refuse" is from The Godfather.

Your quote is from Forrest Gump in which Forrest says, "My mom used to say to me that life is like a box of chocolates. You'll never know what you're going to get."

"Sabes, los chinos dicen que una vez que hayas salvado la vida de una persona, eres responsable de ella para siempre."

Basically right. Its "mama ALWAYS said..."

Siempre means "always". The USMC slogan "Semper fidilis" (Semper Fi Mack!)means "Always faithful". Latin "semper" became the Spanish "siempre". Which is also in your new question.

Let me take a stab.

"The Chinese proverb says 'if you save the life of one person then you are always responsible for that person."

Sumpin like that?

That sounds kinda familiar. But I cant place the movie.

Either that, or its something to do with "durable tightly woven cotten cloth( like they use for Chino pants)". Lol!

I don't know that one either, so here's a new one.

"¡No la golpeé! ¡Yo no! ¡No es verdad! ¡No la golpeé! ¡Yo no! ¡Oh, hola, Mark!"

Clue: The quote is from a cult film that is now considered one of the worst films ever made.

This is not a 100 percent grammatically correct translation, but I will go with this:

"Don't hit me. Its not true. Don't hit me. Oh, hi! Mark."

Something like that? Somebody being interrogated by a cop, but then they recognize the cop as someone they know?

Don't know what movie its from.

You got some of it right. :wink:

The line is from the 2003 cult film The Room and is:

"I did not hit her! I did not! It's not true! I did not hit her! I did not! Oh...hi, Mark!"

The reason why The Room is considered one of the worst movies ever made is because everything about it is so bad it gives the movie a distinction of a "so-bad-it's-good" film.

The scene in which the "Oh...hi, Mark" line is spoken is said by lead character Johnny who in the scene denies an accusation of domestic abuse. He leaves the apartment that he shares with his girlfriend Lisa. He walks onto the rooftop and shouts the line, but when he sees his best friend Mark, Johnny becomes instantly cheerful and ends the line by saying "Oh...hi, Mark."

Greg Sestero {who played "Mark"} wrote a memoir called The Disaster Artist, which was about everything that went wrong during the production of The Room. A film adaptation of his memoir is set for a December release.

Now...your turn. :)

Translation is basically right. The movie is WAYYY off.

The movie is the Fifties cult film (widely touted as the "World's Worst Movie" but it isn't really even close to earning that honor) "Plan Nine From Outer Space".

The alien visitor is talking to the earth guy.

The Earth guy says "why haven't you tried to contact the people of Earth?".

The alien replies "because you people of Earth are...IDIOTS!! !!".

Hard to argue with that last statement! :lol:

Here's another cult movie quote! :wink:

"No te enojes ... Era una misericordia ... Tenía cierto encanto ingenuo, pero sin músculo."

"I am not angry at you... I pity you...you have an innocent charm, but no strength/muscle. "

Actually that sentiment (if not the exact words) does kinda ring a bell. But I cant place it.

Cult film?

Wild guess.

"Reservoir Dogs"?

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Dr. Frank-N-Furter: "Do not be angry. It was a mercy killing. He had a certain naive charm, but no muscle."

Next quote, please! :wink:
