Student or Learner
I was wondering if someone could have a look for me at this sentence: "It means if I'd have known that this is how this whole thing was going to turn out;"
I am just a little confused about this "if I'd have known", it means "if I had have known", or "if I would have known" ? I think I am just stuck here, so...
Thanks for your help.
Hale: You think she knows about the kid?
Paul: We don't know that.
H: We shouldn't have lied. Shouldn't have told her we had the kid.
P: What is it you don't understand? We tell her that kid got away, you and I, we are not here right now.
H: I swear to god, it just get deeper and deeper.
P: What is that supposed to mean?
H: It means if I'd have known that this is how this whole thing was going to turn out; I would've gotten some job with the feds. Push pencils, drink coffee all day long behind a desk. God, that sounds good.
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, I just thought in the same way, as you said, Hale would say "It means if I had known that this is how this whole thing was going to turn out." But all the scripts I got from the website show that Hale says, "It means if I'd have known that this is how this whole thing was going to turn out."
I do not know what does he exactly say when I heard this one. So, okay, let me offer you a MP3 clip, I hope you could take a "hearing" for me.

Not a teacher.. But I think the sentence ''if I'd have known'' means ''if I would have known''
You may take help from others.
thanks for reading my response
....Raymott, it seems I can not open this attached files, it says there is some kind of error occurrd.
If you can not open it either, let me know, I will upload again. !
No I'm not able to open the file either..
Okay, Raymott, this one works.
I am sorry for a late reply. Thank you. And I still do not know that "If I'd have known" refers to " If I had have known", or " If I would have known".
I think it would be " If I would have known", because I have never seen a tense like - had have done. But I am not pretty sure, so...
What is your opinion?
