    Four sentences more to hear and transcribe

    Hello again. I am going on with the subtitles of the movie, and I've found these sentences that I cannot understand. Any help?

    The new link to download the mp3 audio (17 seconds) is:

    Re: Four sentences more to hear and transcribe

    It would help if you could tell us what movie these sentences are from. The way they are recorded are very disjointed and abrupt and it is hard to determine where one sentence ends and another begins. I heard, for example "four ounces of phosphorus will manufacture 60,000 matches," "the large size," "now that game is slightly over four dollars and five cents" and "dots and dashes." But I'm probably missing several words in the snippets you posted.

    I think I also hear, "Is every man who propels through these doors necessarily a thief?"

    I can't get the "conformers"(?) one.

    Re: Four sentences more to hear and transcribe

    The link worked for me!

    Now, for me it's rather clear that the sentences are:

    1) "Four ounces of phosphorus will manufacture 60,000 matches, the large size."

    2) "Plainly, this patient knows a conformer (when se sees one)"

    3) "Is every man who propels through these doors necessarily a thief?"

    4) "Now that game is slightly over four dollars and five cents"

    5) "The large size"

    6) "Dots and dashes"

    Any comment?

    Apparently, this patient knows a conformist.

    ...every man YOU propel through...
