: : : 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.
: LOL, Mama! This is one that the captioners missed, too. They have it captioned "It's torture, Jack!" When I first saw the movie, I heard, "Need to talk to you Jack!" Because it made sense, and I rolled on the floor when I saw the torture caption.
Hi Marcia and Susan,
Yes, I heard it too as "It's torture, Jack". It didn't make any sense to me, but it made a great quote to use whenever things go really wrong at work. All my colleagues are using it now in fact, without even knowing where it came from; just as well, since I got it so wrong, anyway.
: One of the more "famous" mis-hearings in Mohican fandom came with the first wave of Mohican fans, the Prodigy Moheckies, who mis-heard Alice's line "I must not be an ignorant schoolgirl" (I think it went) as "ignorant scooger". So for months, Alice was referred to as the "scooger".
