: : Yeah, Rich...here we go again! ;o) I know you voted for "subtle-like" but to me that makes no sense. For one thing, "sudden-like" is a very common Southern/Country expression. It's used often. And for the phrase "subtle" to be coming from a frontiersman like Hawkeye just doesn't ring true to me. Plus, I really think I can hear and see it clearly. I watched for it particularly in the theater showing, and Myrrh & I both commented that it was pretty clear to us then.
: : MMMM
: I like MMMMarcia's argument about the appropriateness of "sudden-like" rather than "subtle-like". I also think "sudden-like" is more ironic -- it's as if they are going north just as Duncan and the English would LIKE them to do but then they make a decision and quickly, independantly and openly (as opposed to stealthily/suble-like) turn left.
: Besides that, it never occurred to in listening to it that he said anything other than "sudden-like". It seemed clear as a bell to me. That's where my vote goes.
As to subtle like or sudden like, I have never had ANY doubt that Hawkeye was saying sudden like. MMMMarcia, could it be that us old Southerns just have an ear for those kind of sayings??? We hear it so often down South, eps. "country" South. I agree that it is very clear in the theater showing of the movie.....having seen it at the theater for over 3 weeks straight when it was showing, I vote for SUDDEN. Judy
