    I don't know you or .....guy Sam.

    Dear all,

    Please listen to a short extract from the video below. The question is that I don't quite catch and am confused about the phrase from a dialogue starting from:

    I don't know you or .....guy Sam.

    The subtitles I get indicate that the phrase should be - I don't know you. I don't know you or Sam.

    Actually, I hear something like the sky Sam...

    The confusing phrase starts at 1:04 on the tape.

    Thank you very much.

    This is not the only place where "this guy" and "the sky" have been confused! One of the most famous examples of misheard lyrics is "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy" instead of "'Scuse me while I kiss the sky"! (Jimi Hendrix)
