What exactly does Randy say?
« on: Dec 22, 2016, 08:35 PM »
Howdy folks! Here's a little quiz for you! =)

I have a small problem translating the fourth episode in season 2 (A dope trailer is no place for a kitty).

Namely, at 15.30 minutes into the episode I can clearly hear Randy say "we'll make Sam Dorothy", whereas in quotes on the internet and in the captions on the DVD it goes either "well, that would make Sam Dorothy" (on the internet) or "well that makes Sam Dorothy" (official captions, no "would" there).

I do doubt that I have such a sharp ear for hearing it where somebody else thinks (or hears) differently, for I am not a native speaker, but the darn thing bothers me, and I've decided not to go with the flow, but rather seek an advice from more competent listeners.

Could one of you, nice gentlemen, make things final for me? I, for one, think that the idea of making Sam Dorothy is much funnier than a simple stating of a fact, don't you? It has some jail bouquet to it, some inmate flavour, I dare say =))

Best Regards!

Lahey: "I warned Losco about litter. He doesn't realize what he's up against. He's about to enter the shit tornado to Oz."
Randy: "That would make Sam Dorothy, right Mr Lahey?"


Lahey's quote is a reference to the Wizard of Oz.  Dorothy is the name of the main character in that movie, a tornado took her to the land of Oz, so Randy is saying Sam would be like Dorothy if that happened.

THX, shake! I do know precisely who Dorothy is, thank you very much. The question is - why is it funny? Is  it funny altogether? Is it actually a joke? Or is it just a line that has nothing to do with humour? So, Randy called Sam a girl - no big deal - that's all there is to it? It's not all that funny. I thought for some reason that he had an intention to MAKE Sam Dorothy with Lahey. So to say bum him, rape him like in prison, and thus MAKE him a girl (considering Randy and Lahey are gay)  ))

I think Randy was just making an observation in response to Lahey's shit tornado to Oz quote that in that case Sam was like Dorothy.  I don't think Randy had any immediate plans to do Sam any harm, it was just a thought he had, some could say a silly thought, that he blurted out.  He was saying THAT would make Sam Dorothy, not let's make Sam Dorothy.  I find the  thought of comparing Sam to Dorothy funny :)
