    Default Transcription -- 3

    Hi,

    I just transcribed a YouTube video. I missed lots of words. Could you correct my transcription?

    http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=WGeke7DNuY0
    [ Time: 0:00 - 1:25 ]

    Man:
    Suspect northbound 10. Heavy gunfire exchanged. We need backup.

    Will Smith:
    XXX thumbs up quietly? OK.

    Man:
    Hancock's latest active XXX once again raged city officials.

    Woman:
    I can smell that liquor on your breath.

    Will Smith:
    That means I'm drinking.

    Girl:
    Jackass.

    Will Smith:
    Call me a jackass one more time...

    Girl:
    Jackass.

    Will Smith:
    How about you, Thickness? XXX?

    Man:
    Hancock. Son of a gun. I knew you and a cop...

    Will Smith:
    Stop crying, XXX ass.

    Man:
    Not OK.

    Man:
    I do public relations.

    Man:
    People don't like you, Hancock.

    Will Smith:
    Do I look like I care what people think.

    Woman:
    I think you're wasting time with this guy

    Man:
    Hold XXX on YouTube. Everyone remembers XXX stuck in the beach. XXX Hancock.

    Woman:
    Oh, my God.

    Will Smith:
    I don't remember that.

    Man:
    Green peace does.

    This is what I got.


    Man's voice: Suspects on northbound 110. Heavy gunfire exchanged. We need backup.

    Hancock: Fellas! Listen! Give yourselves up quietly.
    Hancock: OK.
    Man's voice: Hancock's latest act of so-called heroics has once again enraged city officials.
    Woman: I can smell that liquor on your breath.
    Hancock: Have I been drinking?
    Boy: Jackass.
    Hancock: Call me a Jackass one more time.
    Boy: Jackass.

    Hancock: How about you, thickness?
    Hancock: Goggles?

    Man: Hancock, son of a gun, I knew you'd come.
    Hancock: Stop cryin', punkass.

    Man: Not OK.

    Man: I do public relations.

    Man: People don't like you, Hancock.
    Hancock: Do I look like I care what people think?
    Woman: I think you're wasing your time with this guy.

    Man: I pulled some stuff up on You Tube. Everybody remembers Walter, the gray whale stuck on the beach. Along comes Hancock.
    Hancock: I don't even remember that.
    Man: Greenpeace does.
    Man: You are a superhero, for God's sake. People should love you.
    Hancock: How are we going to do that, Ray?

    Man: Right now the DA is trying to figure out how to come up here and put you in jail.
    Hancock: Hm?

    Man: I say you should go.
    Woman: He's not gonna go.


    Man: People take you for granted. We've got to make people miss you.
    Hancock: If you don't move, your head....
    Man (on television): Jail watch, day five, and crime is still on the rise.
    Man: You gOt a phone call. It's the chief of police. He says he needs your help.
    Man: You're a hero, Hancock. You'll be miserable the rest of your life until you accept that.
    Hancock: Life here can be difficult for me. After all, I am the only one of my kind. You deserve better from me. I will be better.
    Hancock: I ain't wearin' that.
    Hancock: What? A little tight, but you got it.


    Man: Hancock, I need you to end this.

    Hancock: Do I have permission to touch your body?
    Woman: Yes!
    Hancock: It's not sexual. Not that you're not an attractive woman. Maybe on a different day--
    Woman: Get me out of here!


    Woman: Hancock is down. He looks hurt.
    Man: That's it. Make it look hard.
    Hancock: Aah.
