SR may get crowded this season, but it's usually pretty nice.

How thick is your accent?

Melvin Udall: Never, never, interrupt me, okay?

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

Would you kindly translate/transcribe/decipher what he said? I heard 2-3 words I knew.

I kinda like the sentence structure, it has it's own cadence and speech patterns.

I see, so close to England Herself, that English has not yet penetrated to all parts of the Earth.

I'm at a loss for words, but now I want to jibber-jabber to sheep in a funny way! (Yes, speaking all day in an Irish ak-sent.)

:p
