    A movie quotes transcipt

    Hello.
    I'd like you ask you for some help with a movie voice transcript. There's one person in that movie who I can't understand clearly and I have to pore over almost every line he says before I figure it out more or less. Suprisingly that character was portrayed by John Schneider who allegedly was born in New York, but it seems to me in the movie he's using some kind of a southern dialect. Anyway, his statements in the motion picture has been my struggle for a couple of years now and finally I've managed to find online a subtitles file for the movie, but there's no use in it, because the most vague Schneider's parts were also skipped in that record.


    Well, here's the link to the voice-track pieces I cut out from the movie: https://soundcloud.com/sufler6/sets/...6-voice-pieces


    And these are my ideas:
    1.) "Those of you folks (who are?) going on - we're gonna be here (for the time of?) exactly 30 minutes. They get coffee in the hotel there and something more substantial in the saloon. (Would?) you gentleman private business (sat?) back."


    2.)"Worth more my job, (because/be couple ?) that's the fun ... tell you when we get to Lordsburg..."


    3.)"I ... a man (alive/life) and say a gun got put to his head to get him on the overland stage. I ain't heartless."

    In red I have marked the parts which are my wild guess rather than the actual words I could hear.
    Thank you in advance!

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    Hello, sufler.
    Please let me try.

    I'd like to try it for my listening practice.

    1.)
    "Those you folks (aren't) going on? - we're gonna be here, Tunnel, for exactly 30 minutes. They get coffee in the hotel there, some(thing)? more substantial in the saloon (if?) you gentleman private business (is not?) back."

    2.)"Worth more my job, (be caught with that stuff on her). Tell you what, when we get to Lordsburg..."

    3.)"(Are there?) a man (alive) and say a gun got put to his head to get him on the overland stage. (No?) I ain't heartless."

    It's a tough one.
    I did my best, but some of them don't make sense.
    Basically, I don't understand what he's saying.
    We'll need help from native speakers.

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    The first is very unclear, but it may be this:

    Those of you folks who are going on we're gonna be here in Tunnel for exactly 30 minutes. You (can) get coffee in the hotel there and something more substantial in the saloon. For you gentleman private vendors out back." (This could mean prostitution)

    Worth more than my job to be caught with that stuff on my...

    Are there any men alive who can say a gun got put to his head to get him on....

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    Ok, Tdol thank you very much you help, finally someone managed to get it all right ;) Just later it hit me about the T-word we've been all wondering about. It's the name of the place where they arrived at, and I listened to it as uttered by other characters. One guy with a British accent pronounces it sort of "Tonto" or "Tomto" and this is probably the way it's written. I suppose the American "flap T" makes it sound like "Tunnel".

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    OK, but it really sounded like tunnel to me, and, presumably, to Tzfujimino too.

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    And what about this one https://soundcloud.com/sufler6/stagecoach4 ?
    (I won't open another thread for this audio clip, because it's still from the same movie).

    Now it's a woman speaking:
    "I knew the answer for that when I was about 14.
    Then I hit 15 and ran ahead on(to) that thing called reality.
    Been walking with the land/letter/ladder/lenore? ever since."


    Most of all I have no idea about the L-word in the final part. What may it be?

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    Hello.
    Thank you for giving me another great opportunity to try again.
    It's a lot easier this time, I think. The final part, as you say, sounds like 'Atlanta' to me.

    "I knew the answer to that when I was about 14.
    Then I hit 15, ran ahead onto that thing called reality,
    been walking with
    Atlanta? ever since."

    It sounds like been walking with a lantern ever since. I don't know what the person means by this- I haven't seen the film.

    Re: A movie quotes transcipt

    Ah, I see!
    The 'n' sound before 'ever' was the problem for me.
    Thank you, Tdol.
