Podcast Ep. 13 Vid. 1

Did you know they re-made the sitcom MARRIED WITH CHILDREN? That is, they hired Russian writers and actors, and refilmed every episode in Russian. (This as opposed to simply dubbing the original U.S. version.) And here’s a clip. Spot a new word?
(NOTE: БАРОН (Baron) is the name of their dog.)

Как нет? Посмотри вниз, придурок.
How no? (Meaning: How am I not here??) Look down, moron.

Алло? Привет. Нет, я ничего не делаю. В парк на роликах? Отлично. Всё. Договорились. Буду через пять минут. Пока. Да. Через пять минут я точно не буду.
Hello? Hi. No, I’m not doing anything. To the park on roller skates? Excellent. That’s it. Agreed. I’ll be in five minutes. (We assume she means “I’ll be ready” or maybe “I’ll be outside”). Bye-bye. Yes. In five minutes I definitely won’t be.
(She means, Yeah, for sure I won’t be ready in five minutes.)

Ничего себе! Так ты американец?!
Wow! So you’re an American?

Ха! Ну, извини. Так получилось. Но мама у меня русская.
Ha! Well, sorry. It (just) worked out that way. But my Mom is Russian.
