AM-208 "Happy Trials" Chinese Translation

By Da Chicken Lady on alt.tv.ally-mcbeal

Here's the conversation between Ling and the waiter at the Chinese restaurant


Fish, Ling, the Biscuit and Nell were having dinner in a Chinese restaurant, w/ Stefan the frog on the table in a little container.

The English is normal type and the Chinese is in bold.

BISCUIT: uhm, Ling, could they perhaps feed Stefan? Uh, maybe just a little lettuce or something. Hes giving me a look of famish.

LING: CAN YOU TAKE THIS FROG TO THE KITCHEN AND GIVE IT SOME VEGETABLES TOEAT?

[note: in chinese, the word for vegetables can also mean entree]

The waiter nods: OH, NO PROBLEM. NO PROBLEM.

BISCUIT: But bring him right back. He suffers a little separation anxiety.

WAITER: OK. OK. IT'LL BE RIGHT BACK. IT'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

BISCUIT nods: ok.

We cut to a different scene. When we return to the restaurant, the John, Nelle, Richard, and Ling were talking about Happy the judge. Then:

BISCUIT: Oh...Ling, can you ask him to bring Stefan back? He has some separation problems.

LING: CAN YOU BRING THE FROG BACK? THIS STRANGE PERSON MISSES IT.

WAITER: YES, YES, MISS. THIS PLATE YOU'RE HAVING IS IT. FROG DELIGHT.

LING: SORRY, WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?!

WAITER: MISS, YOU TOLD ME BEFORE TO TAKE THE ENTREE TO THE KITCHEN IN THE BACK. I TOOK THE FROG IN THE BACK. RIGHT? RIGHT.

LING: ARE YOU MENTALLY ILL?!

WAITER: WHY ARE YOU CALLING ME MENTALLY ILL?

FISH: What's...What's going on?

LING: He's going to be taking a big moment. That's all I can say.

WAITER: BUT I COOKED IT FOR YOU. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE KITCHEN AND HAD THEM COOK IT FOR YOU. AREN'T YOU PLEASED WITH IT? RIGHT?

LING: RIGHT!

WAITER: BROUGHT TO THE BACK. COOKED.

LING: RIGHT! COOKED! I SAID TO TAKE IT BACK TO GIVE IT VEGETABLES. I DIDN'T SAY TO COOK IT!

FISH: What's...What's going on?

LING: The bad news is Stefan is back. The good news is he's delicious. Hmmm. Tastes like chicken.

We cut to commercial. When we next see Ling and the waiter arguing:

WAITER: MISS!

LING: IT'S YOUR FAULT!

WAITER: MY FAULT?! MISS, DON'T BE SO UNREASONABLE, OK?!

LING: I'LL SUE YOU!

WAITER: SUE ME?! MISS! YOU TOLD ...(INTERRUPTED BY LING)

LING: I'LL SUE YOU AND YOUR FATHER'S RESTAURANT!

WAITER: MISS! DON'T BE SO UNREASONALBE, OK? YOU SAID YOU'LL SUE ME? YOU CALLED ME STUPID?!

LING: I'LL SUE YOU.

WAITER: YOU ARE GOING TO SUE ME OVER A DEAD FROG?
