    Default Help needed: Ronnie Coleman accent (AmE)

    Bodybuilding.com Videos - Ronnie Coleman: The Undiscovered Footage | The Legacy

    Starting at 02:42 I can't completely understand what they are saying.

    I'm getting this:
    The guy: You wanna dry up some of this before you can add it to something?
    Coleman: I'll do it tomorrow.

    Then at 04:42 again their speech is hard to understand. I need this part badly.

    Really appreciate your help.

    Allenman, thanks man! I got only this one left. I'm having a hard time getting what Ronnie and the other guy are talking about in the video starting at 02:42 and then at 04:42.

    Ronnie seems to be talking about Denny's where he used to work before.

    C:Oh yeah.
    G:You can't even get out of this thing.... This is just like the belly (?)....You get in it (?).


    G:Where did you grow up again?
    C:Bastrop, Louisiana.
    G:When did you get here (?) ?
    C:...I graduated college in '87.
    I graduated in December '86. ...my roommate ...that I lived with, he had a job here (?). I didn't have one. So I just figured out I follow him before I find one. I... but I will. I've been there for 23 years.
    G:Louisiana?
    C:Uh-huh. ...10 000 people in my hometown.
    G:Really?

    G:What made you become a police officer?
    C:I needed the job.
    G:(laughing)
    C:I worked for Domino's for 2 years. I'd work anywhere (?). Delivering pizza. So...college. (laughing). Domino's, the Police Department, and Denny's.

    G:Miami?
    C:No. Orlando, Orlando. Yeah. Orlando.

    G:Did you have any passports when you got (?) through?
    C:Man!
    G:You collect them?
    C:No. They ... last for 10 years. Man, but I ran out. I ran out of ... stamp right in the middle of it. I was in South Africa, matter of fact. And everybody: "Man...." I'm like: "What?"
    G:... you can't go.
    C:I'm getting ready to get on the plane.
    G:...story?
    C:3 years ago.
    G:3 years ago.
    C:Yeah. I'm like: "What do you mean I can't go?" They are like: "You can't go. You got no stamp". So I'm like: "What do I need to do?" They say: "You gotta need some more patience (?) Another passport". Man, come on! I went back home. ....I went to the Post Office and ...... "Why don't you go to Houston and ... right there. So I jump on another plane to Houston (laughing). And I went straight to the Post Office. They didn't make it (?) .... police officer...today. Oh yeah! We normally don't but we'll do for you. They gave me a brand new one right there.

    If you feel like doing this for me, you can just fill in the blanks as you go through the video. I appreciate any input on this. Thank you.
