Cantonese Mini-Transcript / The Incredibles / They Will Kill You

Audio: incredibles-theywillkillyou

This clip is from The Incredibles/超人特工隊. Helen Parr (Elastigirl) and the kids have made it onto Syndrome’s island base. Helen is about to leave the kids alone in a cave overnight while she goes to heroically rescue husband Bob. But before she parts with her offspring, she does the momly thing to do and lays down some ground rules 😉 .

daan gung neui haap (paak hoi leun):keui dei jyut deui m wui yan wai nei hai siu pang yau jau lau sau。yat yau gei wui ge wa,keui dei jau wui saat nei。m hou bei gei wui keui dei。
Helen: They won’t exercise restraint because you’re children. They will kill you if they get the chance. Do not give them that chance.

paak siu lai:ma mi?
Violet: Mom?

daan gung neui haap (paak hoi leun):siu lai,ngo kaau saai nei ga la。
Helen: Vi, I’m counting on you.

di ye la
Violet: There’s something I…

ngo kaau saai nei a。gin keung di。siu chung,yu gwo[yau]di me ye m to ge wa,ma mi yiu nei yau gam faai jau gam faai。
Helen: I’m counting on you. Be strong. Dash, if anything goes wrong, I want you to run as fast as you can.
Note: Helen all but swallows the 有, but it does belong there, AFAIK.

yau gam faai jau gam faai
Dash (excited): As fast as I can?!

yau gam faai jau gam faai。gan jyu nei maai。tai jyu daai ga。ma mi teng jiu jau faan。
Helen: As fast as you can. Stay hidden. Keep each other safe. I’ll be back by morning.
Note: When people say 就/jau really fast or…lazily…it can come out sounding a bit like “yau”…

    Another wonderful addition to my SRS. I got 15 new cards out of this (yes, I are n00b).

    Gotta say, these are really handy. I made a point of watching the Incredibles in Cantonese on the last flight back and man, was it good watchin’.
