This girl has been telling everyone that the guy in the chef hat is her boyfriend. How does he respond?
I’m not your boyfriend, and you’re not my girlfriend.
Man, does he say that fast! The skill of native speakers (in any language) to speak blisteringly fast and yet still remain comprehensible is truly incredible.

By the way, he’s not on a voyage, is he?
Отлично. Давай, Грегорий. Давай давай давай!
Excellent. Come on, Gregory. Come on, come on, come on …(go do the thing we just discussed)
Podcast Ep. 20 Vid. 7
This clip is from a Russian time travel show. The guy who enters the room is the grown-up version of a kid named Pashka (Пашка). The old man is his grandpa (Дед is short for дедушка…”grandpa”)
Can you translate their exchange?
So where’s Pashka?
Я здесь, Дед.
I’m here, Grandpa.
Я вам не Дед.
I, to you, am not Grandpa! (He says this because he doesn’t realize yet that the guy is his grandson but grown-up.)

Да вы что?!
You don’t say!
