  • I can't with that guy you're mine the Hedgehog was illegal left by the way of

  • course he's a 300 IQ so it took me a week and a half to prepare Robotnik

  • wants to control humanity with his machines Sonic is a power that he needs

  • to control the world no but thank you for asking

  • oh that's not good

  • I just thought you might like a latte with steamed Austrian goat milk of

  • course I want a latte I love the way you make them I think I'm

  • lucky in that regard my blood every blood I'm just having so much fun

  • we've created a monster we won't be able to control mister dr. Robotnik he is a

  • madman which of these groups do you think are closer and meaning to madman I

  • can't with that guy you're mine the Hedgehog was an illegal left by the way

  • Sonic uses an interesting expression here in this context he means that he

  • has a hard time dealing with dr. Robotnik probably because he's

  • persistent or too much of a nuisance this is a bit similar to when we say

  • you're too much which can mean you are too much of a problem for me or you are

  • just too funny clever entertaining etc we covered this expression in our

  • hilarious lesson joeys punch and girlfriend hey thank you oh hey did Joey

  • tell you to say that you guys are too much

  • oh yeah you know what I gotta tell you III think you were the one that is

  • Oh Joey has the nicest friends oh and the nicest girlfriend

  • oh you're so sweet then he says that was an illegal left he sang this because he

  • turned to the left into a street that has transit going from left to right

  • which is funny because sonic is not a car hey if you find Jim Carrey hilarious

  • then you'll definitely want to check out this old lesson that we made with one of

  • his classic characters from Dumb and Dumber after you finished this video you

  • can find that by cooking up here or it down in description below Robotnik was

  • to control humanity with his missions they sound a lot of learners fail to

  • articulate correctly is the L when it's in the final position of a word when you

  • pronounce it make sure the tip of your tongue doesn't touch the roof of your

  • mouth it's control not control this is

  • humanity with his machines in this case CH sounds like it's not machine it's

  • machine let's listen and repeat Robotnik was to control humanity with his

  • machines no but thank you for asking in action and superhero movies you might

  • often hear is that all you got or some other similar expressions this means is

  • that all you can do Robotnik's reply thank you for asking is funny because it

  • doesn't fit in the context of a combat we say this or thanks for asking

  • after someone asks a question that shows they care about us

  • how are you really I'm on a better path it's a journey thank you for asking me

  • and thank you for your letters ok you have to understand something we're in a

  • hospital right now why is Leonard ok Leonard's fine I'm fine thanks for

  • asking but

  • kind of regular zeitgeist with this character

  • zeitgeist refers to the defining spirit or mood of a certain point in history as

  • shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time for example you could say that the

  • cafe culture of Buenos Aires has a zeitgeist of 19th century Paris what

  • carry probably means is that playing this character made him feel like he was

  • back in the 1990s again when the original Sonic the Hedgehog game was

  • first released give me a break is a common expression used for showing that

  • you are annoyed by something someone has said or done or that you do not think

  • that what they have said is true you know it's been really nice hanging out

  • with Jax because he likes to talk about his feelings

  • give me a break Jess is that really what you want a man who talks about his

  • feelings all the time he says big and fat here to make the phrase sound more

  • emphatic I was gonna smoke the marijuana like a cigarette

  • well now you're looking at a nice big fat punishment mustache was ridiculous I

  • wish I could grow it in this case ridiculous is used to mean crazy that is

  • in a bad way or crazy in a funny way you can tell which by the tone for example

  • that rollercoaster was ridiculous I'm never doing that again that

  • rollercoaster was ridiculous we've got to go on it again be able to do a movie

  • that brings a good memory back and connects with new generations of people

  • it is really amazing I've been very lucky in that regard to bring back means

  • to cause ideas feelings or memories to be in your mind again bringing memories

  • back is a common collocation in that regard here means in connection with the

  • point previously mentioned so Jim Carrey is just saying that he's lucky that he's

  • been called to work in a movie that brings back good memories

  • two-nil something needs to do something really well we see it as for example

  • you're going to nail your exam sometimes we just say nailed it after we've done

  • something really well like in these examples Oh

  • look at this one wow you nailed it that was amazing I mean we totally nailed it

  • it was beautiful

  • the time for talking is over it's time to push bunnies

  • you're flying eggs are pretty impressive mr. Eggman but let's face it you'll

  • never catch me hon fidence a fool's substitute for intelligence

  • that's not good Sonic and then you got the SuperSpeed

  • and everything but Maddie and I totally defense this is probably gonna get blown

  • up pretty much yeah don't worry I know exactly what to do

  • I was not expecting that but I was expecting not to expect something so it

  • doesn't count yes when I got the call to do Sonic

  • it was really exciting good morning my rural job mister dr. Robotnik he is a

  • madman I can't with that guy you're lying the Hedgehog that was an

  • illegal left by the way of course he's a 300 IQ zone so it took me a week and a
