● D4 It's only rock and roll
Del: Zašto gubiš vreme sa gomilom bezveznjaka?
Rodni: Nisu oni gomila bezveznjaka! Još nisi čuo kako sviramo.
Del: Ne moram. Znam ko vam je pevač. Mentalni Miki!
Rodni: Miki Megvajeru ništa ne fali.
Del: Samo mu nedostaje sluha!
Rodni: Ne potpuno.
Rodni: Seti se gužve za prošli Božić oko onih palica za kriket. "Svaku je lično potpisao Viv Ričards."
Del: I jeste svaku ličnu potpisao Viv Ričards... Dobro, nije to bio onaj čuveni Viv Ričards.
Rodni: Ne... To je bila najstarija sestra Dejva Ričardsa. Samo su mi ih vraćali.
Del: Ako ponovo udariš u krov kombija, neće biti "Frankie goes to Hollywood", nego "Rodney goes to hospital"!
Del (o bendu): Vrlo sam iznenađen. Mislio sam da ću čuti gomilu blesana koji zvuče kao mačka koju operišu bez anestezije. Ali vi ste dobri!
Mentalni Miki: Šta...?
Del: Dosta ste dobri. Niste baš na nivou "Spandau Balleta" ili "Durham Durhama", ali nešto mi se dopada u vašoj muzici... Pa, tu ima nešto... (za sebe) Samo se nadam da nije zarazno.
Del: Još niste uvežbani. Pogledajte se samo. Izgledate kao klošari izašli iz kontejnera i koji su se opet vratili u njega.
Policajac: Ukradene su dve gitare dva zvučnika i komplet bubnjeva. Pa, evo jedne palice. Malo je zamašćena.
Rodni: Hvala. Mislite da ćete ih uhvatiti?
Policajac: Ne bi trebalo da bude teško. Obići ćemo sve klubove dok ne nađemo grupu sa jednorukim bubnjarem.
Rodni lupa par puta palicom za bubnjeve.
Del: Još uvek radi, zar ne?
Del: Hajde, Roders. Nisi valjda mislio da ćeš negde otići, zar ne? Samo pogledaj tu ostalu trojicu. Zajedno imaju 5 i po moždanih ćelija, a jedna od njih je skoro crkla!
Rodni: Šta god da je u pitanju, mama je nešto o tome rekla na samrti. Mora da je poslednje sate provela pričajući k'o luda!
Del: Hodaš na oštrici noža, Rodni!
Rodni: Čekaj! Prošle nedelje smo se svađali ko će otići po pomfrit i ribu. A ti si tvrdio da je mama rekla na samrti, "Pošalji Rodnija po ribu".
Vi mora da ste iz Škotske ako… (UK/SCO poglavlje
You love going to the "shows" and especially going on the waltzers.
Remember the waltzer boy shouting through the tannoy "Get on the
the best side is the left side" and "Screeeam if you wanna go
5644. The BBC force you to watch England's football matches. You want to strangle Mark Lawrenson and Gary Lineker. You also bet on when they'll mention "1966" and you scrutinise Hansen to see if he says "we" referring to England.
5645. If you have lived in Edinburgh or Glasgow, then you truly hate the other city to the West/East. Scotsman v Herald, Capital v Industrial Giant, mild & wet v cold blue skies, Old Firm v Edinburgh Derby.
5646. Your holiday abroad is ruined if you hear there is a "heatwave" in Scotland while you're away. Even worse if the intended hot weather abroad doesn't materialise!
5647. Even if the meal you have just eaten in a restaurant was totally minging you just can't bring yourself to complain or make a scene. You feel you have made your point by not leaving a tip.
5648. The tip you leave depends on how much you've had to drink, no
required like the Americans.
5649. You've shared happy memories of being wee and drinking creamola
5650. You might say "dinner" instead of "lunch" and say "tea" instead of "dinner".
5651. You might make a piece for your lunch. "Will ye be coming for lunch, Willie?" / "nah, ah"ve got ma piece".
5652. You don't get beaten up, you get battered! Also you dont ""kick someones head in", you "give them a wee hidin!"
5653. You do say "Och aye" but never accompanied by "the noo" which every American assumes is part of our everyday language.
5654. You know one of the worst crimes you can commit as a Scot is to lose your accent willingly or put on a fake English/American accent. Examples: Gordon Brown (he says "brakefast" now!) Lulu, Sheena Easton (heckled in Glasgow until she cried!) Ronni Ancona etc.
5655. You are in a restaurant generally you receive service from
with a smile, smiling when they greet you, smiling when they take your
smiling when you pay. This does not happen in most European countries,
5660. You get all confused and tongue tied at the supermarket checkout when the cashier says "How are you today?". Do they really want to know how you're feeling or are they just saying that because they have to?
You got the belt (before it was banned) at school not the cane.
5662.You call trick or treating "guising" and you actually had to tell a joke, a poem or sing a song to earn a treat - ahh those were the days!
5663. You know it's almost impossible to find a sandwich in Scotland with no mayonnaise in it!
