    "I'm ... the neighborhood that well. Is the train which direction?"

    https://youtu.be/OsiSBYCC53E?t=1m4s

    A guy asks a girl for directions. The link takes you right to the part.

    I heard "I'm not good with the neighborhood that well," but that can't be right because "not good" and "that well" are redundant.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you, as always.

    It sounded to me like "I don't really know the neighbourhood that well".

    He slurs his words. I heard I'm (the)... the neighborhood that well. I can't think of any words that would make sense there.

    I had to listen to it four or five times but I got the same as Piscean.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You did better than I. It took me at least half a dozen tries before I got it (I think).

    I've listened to it a few more times. I think the actor stumbled over his lines. He started to say I'm..., then remembered his line was I don't really know the neighborhood that well. It comes out ​I'm th- don' really know....
