#232:  Thelma & Louise


Instructions:  Listen to the youtube video above and fill in the blanks in the transcript below (or write your answers on a piece of paper). Beginners can use the list of missing words and phrases, but if you're an advanced student, try to fill in the blanks just by listening to the video, without looking at the missing words and phrases.  The answers are given at the end of the transcript.

Main Features:  In this video lesson, you'll here the word "you" when it sounds like "chu" and "dju".  The question "Aren't you" sounds like "aren't chu" and "What did you do?" sounds like "What dju do?" (twice).  You'll also hear the phrase "come on" three times in this scene; the meaning is described in the footnotes.

Missing Words and Phrases (7):  Aren't you [aren't chu]; kind of [kinda]; their [air]; want to [wanna]; what did you [what dju] (2 times); you've got to [you gotta].

Background:  Thelma and JD recently met.  She wants to get to know him better, so she asked him, "Who are you?  I know you're not some schoolboy."  JD admits that he committed a crime, but she wants to know more, so she asks him:

____________ do?

I'm a robber.

You're a bank robber?

No!  No.  I don't rob no banks [1].  Come on [2].

____________ rob?

Hmm.  Well, let's see.  Let's add it up here [3].  I, uh, robbed a gas station, a couple convenience stores [4], liquor stores.

Oh, my God.  How? 

{He looks away.}

Come on [5].

Okay.  Well, see, first you pick your place, right?  Then I just sit back and watch it for a little while.  Wait for that right moment to make my move, see?  That's something _____________ know up here.  That shit cannot be taught.  Yeah.  Then, uh... Oh, shit.  I don't _______ talk about this.

Come on [5].  I do.


Then I'd waltz right in [6].  Yep.  And I just _______ waltz on in and I say, "Ladies, gentlemen.  Let's see who wins a prize for keeping _____ cool [7]. Simon says [8], 'Everybody down on the floor [9].'  Now, nobody loses their head, then nobody loses their head [10].  Uh, you, sir!  Yeah, you do the honors.  Take that cash and put it in that bag right there and you've got an amazing story to tell your friends.  If not, well, you've got a tag on your toe [11]. You decide." Simple as that [12].  Then I'd just slip on out [13] and, uh, get the hell out of Dodge [14].  Yeah.  Mmm hmm.

My goodness.  You are sure gentlemanly about it.

Well, now, I've always believed that, done properly, armed robbery doesn't have to be a totally unpleasant experience.



You're a real live outlaw, __________?

Well, I may be an outlaw, darling, but uh, you're the one stealing my heart.

Ooooo, smooth.

Oh, ooooo.


Isn't it? 

You're smooth.

Isn't it? 


That's right. 

I like it that that way.  {Laughs}

All for you [15].


[1] I don't rob no banks = This is how an uneducated person might talk.  The correct sentence is "I don't rob banks" or "I don’t rob any banks", but he uses a double negative ("don't" and no").  
[2] Come on = Here the expression "come on" is used to say that the other person's statement is not realistic.  She thinks that he's a big-time criminal, but he says, "No, I'm nothing like that.  I just rob little stores." 
[3] Let's add it up here = The first word "let's" sounds like "ts", that is, the first two letters are silent.  This can happen when the word "let's" is not stressed and is followed by a vowel wound (e.g., "Let's add"). 
[4] Convenience store = a small store that sells everyday items like milk, soft drinks, bottled water, bread, candy, gum, maybe beer and wine, etc.
[5] Come on = Please tell me.  Here the expression "come on" is used to try to convince someone to do something he/she doesn't want to do.  Here JD doesn't want to tell her how he robs stores.  So she says, "Come on" = Please tell me.  The expression "Come on" has other meanings as well, such as "Hurry up!". 
[6] To waltz into a place = A waltz is a dance, but here it means to enter a place calmly, confidently. 
[7] To keep cool = to stay cool = to not lose one's cool = to not get excited; to not do something stupid or foolish.
[8] Simon says = this refers to a kid's game called "Simon says".
[9] Everybody down on the floor = This is a command, but the verb "get" is missing.  The full sentence is, "Everybody get down on the floor." 
[10] To lose one's head = to panic.  Nobody loses their head, then nobody loses their head = This is an "if-then" sentence, e.g., "If nobody loses their head, then nobody will lose their head."  The first "lose one's head" is figurative; the second "lose one's head" is literal.  He's saying that if no one panics, then no one's head will be shot off.
[11] A tag on your toe = When a person dies, they sometimes put a tag on his toe to identify him.  So Brad Pitt is saying if you don't put the money in the bag, you'll be dead.
[12] Simple as that = The full sentence is "It's as simple as that."  The word "It's" is missing.
[13] To slip on out = To leave a place without being noticed.
[14] To get out of Dodge = to leave a place, usually in a hurry.
[15] All for you = The full sentence is "It's all for you."  The word "It's" is missing.


1) What did you [what dju]
2) What did you [what dju]
3) you've got to [you gotta]
4) want to [wanna]
5) kind of [kinda]
6) their [air]
7) aren't you [aren't chu]
