    Hey... is there anyone who speaks Spanish around here? Care to translate Rita Moreno's Spanish monologue to Animal in the middle of this scene?

    This is the "Fever" number from her appearance on TMS. About the middle, she speaks rapidly in Spanish to Animal and then says in English "Cool it." I assume that the Spanish gives the same general message, but was just curious to the exact phrasiology. :confused: :wisdom: :search:

    It's translated in the MS guides here.

    Yup, Oscarfan is right!

    http://www.muppetcentral.com/guides/episodes/tms/season1/5_moreno.shtml says:

    CLOSING NUMBER - "FEVER"

    Rita sings "Fever," accompanied by Floyd and Animal. Animal gets excited and begins to play the drums wildly, ruining Rita's song. Rita has some harsh words with him in Spanish, but Animal continues. Rita stops her song and smashes Animal's head between two cymbals.

    ANIMAL: That my kind of woman!

    [If you are wondering what Rita says in Spanish, here it is: "Listen Buddy. All I wanna tell you is that you shouldn't do that. It's not nice, you understand? Look at me when I'm talking to you. This is my number, and if you bother me any more I'm gonna hit you so hard, it's gonna leave you stupid. Cool it."]

    Gosh. I could have figured that out. I guess I read this post too late. Lol. BTW, you might want to change your quote now that we have this. :shifty: Nice pic though.

    Haha, no problem guys! It was Oscarfan who suggested looking in the guides, and I was cheap enough to copy and paste. ;)
