Hi, Ann...yes, some of the very lines you mention were troubling to me, too, the first 30 or 40 times I watched the movie. But after the 100th time or so, I finally figured out MOST! ;o) The "say nothing to Alice" line I always heard, but I never heard Uncas say "Get back!" when he pulls Alice from the edge of the falls until I adjusted the background sound on our speakers & pumped up the dialog a bit.
One line that always confused me was Hawkeye's while arriving at the fort when he calls up to Jack on the ramparts...for the longest time, I kept thinking he was saying "It's torture, Jack!"...which of course, made no sense at all. Finally, I realized it was "Need to talk to you, Jack!" Imagine my surprise, therefore, to find out Ilse also had thought he was saying "It's torture..." hehehe...even in Holland, that line must have sounded strange.
But I still think the best one was Mary's interpretation of Duncan's final line as, "My corns hurt, Sir...take her and get out!" A year later, I'm still laughing about that one! And (though I hadn't come up with anything nearly that funny) I had a trouble with that same line for months before realizing he was saying "My compliments, Sir...take her and get out!" Poor Duncan and his soon-to-be-roasted corns!!(Of course, it could be argued that Duncan's final line was actually, "Aaaaaaaagggggggggghhhhh!" but that would be TACKY, and thus, WAY beneath Mighty Mohican Mama Marcia!)
