    Alas Smith and Jones

    Quellen
    This is a skit performed by Alas Smith and Jones. I've done a transcript below.

    There are some things I don't understand. Can you help me?

    Please watch it here:

    - What exactly can I do for you, Mr. P.?

    - I'm looking for a completely new type of bank account.

    - I see.

    - I want a current account that pays interest. And if I [...] go overdrawn, I don't expect to pay any bank charges. When I come into the bank I expect all the cashiers to stand up and say: "Good morning, Mr. P.".

    Will you please stop raising your eyebrows in that condescending [...] manner! And that tie will have to go!

    I want use of your house at weekends and you can't enter. I want a plumber who comes when he says he will, and an erection that lasts slightly longer than two and a half minutes.

    [...] my mother who is seventy-three and doesn't get out as much as she used to. I love you, mum. And three extra painters.

    And I want world peace, an end to all poverty and starvation, and a speedboat

    - I think that can be arranged. No problem.

    - Thank you very much.

    - And can you let go my bollocks, please?

    [...] my mother who is seventy-three and doesn't get out as much as she used to. I love you, mum. And three extra painters. Das mit der Mutter kann ich wegen des Gelächters im Hintergrund nicht verstehen.

    And I want world peace, an end to all poverty and starvation, and a speedboat.

    - I think that can be arranged. No problem.

    - Thank you very much.

    - And can you let go of my bollocks, please?

    @Dragon: I think that's what Eule meant: maybe "your carpenter" instead of "you can't enter". It would make sense because later he mentions plumbers and painters. But I'm not sure. Why is he so focused on workmen?

    I want use of your house at weekends and YOUR CAR ANYTIME.

    It isn't "painters". It think it is "PINTAS" (i.e. three extra pints of milk)

    tomtom hat vielleicht recht: It's not "painters", it's "pintas".

    Wobei ich gerade überlege, dass der Satz dann eigentlich anders weitergehen müsste: Für seine Mutter will er drei Extra-Glas Milch.

    As to (?)my mother, who is seventy-three and doesn't get out as much as she used to - I love you, mum - I want (?) three extra pintas.

    Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass er überhaupt nichts mit "thank" sagt.
