Clip Script: Did you see this?
Here comes every lunatic in California.
I’m the zodiac.
And how did you kill your victims?
With a gun. No, with a hammer.
All I’m authorized to tell you is that he’s still under government employment.
Further example: Some lunatic came into the store and shot him.
Clip Script: Do you have time for a banana root hair treatment?
Yes, of course.
It makes the hair long and lustrous. Like Cher circa 1975. Do you have a nice dress?
Put it on tonight, come to the Beach Shack. I’ll introduce you to everyone. The expats, the locals. You’ll dance. You will love it.
Further example: Her hair was beautifully dark and lustrous.
Make a name for yourself
اسم و رسمی به هم زدن
Clip Script: You spend your whole career hoping, someday, you’ll get a red-letter case. Something you can really make a name for yourself with.
Further example: He quickly made a name for himself in the Parisian art world.
Clip Script: Will you please open the door?
Get back. This is a mandatory evacuation area. Everyone in this region has to leave. We ain’t going nowhere!
Further example: Crash helmets are mandatory for all the motorcyclists in this city.
Clip Script: I wanna go someplace where I can marvel at something. Language, gelato, spaghetti, something.
You’re talking like a college kid.
I’ve been acting like one. Since I was 15, I’ve either been with a guy or breaking up with a guy. I have not given myself two weeks of a breather to just deal with, you know, myself.
Further example: I marveled at my mother’s ability to remain calm in a crisis.
Clip Script: You expect me to believe that? I make decisions every day.
You have free will over which toothpaste you use or which beverage to order at lunch. But humanity just isn’t mature enough to control the important things.
So, you handle the important things?
Further example: Laura is very mature for her age.
وسیله امرار معاش
Clip Script: Here’s a copy of Roxie’s first statement from the D.A.’s office. It says she hadn’t copulated with you for four months prior to the incident.
Well, she would know. Yeah, I guess we hadn’t done no copulating since… Wait a minute. That don’t figure out right. I couldn’t be the father.
Well, forget about that now. My client needs your support.
You mean she needs a meal ticket. That’s all I ever been. This time she’s gone too far.
Further example: There were times when he suspected he was just a meal ticket to her.
Clip Script: I’m mildly curious as to how much money you have on my head now. I hope you do not think I was the one who wiped out that blue meanie with a bomb at the cop station, even though I talked about killing children with one. This is the Zodiac speaking.
Further example: Don’t be such a meanie!
Mess with sb
برای کسی دردسر درست کردن، کسی را فریب دادن
Clip Script: Hey, Walter. What it is? Afraid of a little water?
I ain’t messing with you, Wink. I’m getting out of here. You can stay if you want, but I’m out.
Further example: You mess with me, and I’ll rip your head off.
Mind one’s own business

Clip Script: Minding my own business and getting some air.
All I was doing. I promise.
I believe you.
Further example: I was minding my own business, sleeping when I heard something.
Clip Script: Well, your recent misconduct…
Perceived misconduct brings into question your mental state on the night of the incident. That’s why I’m here.
Further example: He was fired for serious misconduct.
Clip Script: He wrote me, you know? 2,500 suspects, the only one who ever wrote me a latter was Leigh Allen. They like to help, you know, sometimes.
Yes. Robert, I know. He was arrested January 1975 for molestation. He sent me that when he got out.
Further example: He is accused of sexual molestation.
مثل منگول ها
Clip Script: You’re not gonna turn into mongoloid any time soon. If that’s what you’re asking.
Further example: The kids act in mongoloid.
Clip Script: Now that you’re going, who is gonna kick my ass every day?
Oh: I’d stay till a monsoon swept me away if I could. Bye-bye.
But you’ve got bills to pay and houses to build.
You just keep doing the work and move on with your life, will you?
The man is getting on a plane and you’re still bossing me. I’ve got your whole list: move on, use mosquito repellent and I don’t know. There were some other things. I wrote them down.
Further example: Snow was falling as steadily as the apricot blossom in the first monsoon storm.
Clip Script: Have you ever read or heard anything about the Zodiac?
When it was first in the paper. But I didn’t follow it after those first reports.
Too morbid. I told all this to the other officer.
Which other officer?
Further example: His head was full of morbid thoughts.
Clip Script: Listen, lady, I am only 7, but I can tell you’re a complete moron because I am from Naples.
I love this place, but Giovanni said to watch out. His cousin got mugged here in a museum.
Are you serious?
Watch out for the scooter. Yeah.
Further example: Don’t leave it there, you moron!
Clip Script: That’s the way I handle it. You understand?
Yeah. It’s a good motto.
Further example: Be prepared’ is the motto of the boy scouts.
Clip Script: Was he into movies? Was he a movie buff?
I can tell you that he was not into people. The party Darlene threw, people were supposed to just show up and drink beer, help paint. But this guy showed up in a suit.
Further example: My brother is a movie buff.
زدن، از کسی سرقت کردن
Clip Script: I didn’t have your number.
I gave it you on the bus. Handed it to you.
I was mugged. It was taken from me.
No, come on.
My wallet was taken.
Why else would I fawn all over you on a bus three years ago and then never call you?
Because, I don’t know! You have a girlfriend.
Further example: A lot of people won’t go out alone at night because they’re afraid of being mugged.
