Mike is so angry he’s slipping into Cantonese here. As mentioned offhand previously, he spent some formative years on the streets of Hong Kong, despite his non-Asian heritage. Yes, there is big story there. I’ll get around to telling it someday.
Big thanks to ææ³°å»¶ (Lin Taiyan – better known to you all as ChineseWolf here on the site) and friends, for help in translating the Cantonese dialogue bits.
Here’s a quick translation [Cantonese bits in brackets]:
MIKE: You [backwoods, uneducated jack-ass ], you were supposed to keep a low profile, not start growing pot for some [cartel ]!
JT: Damned outta yer own mouth, you sunnuvabitch. How DARE y'all come here to mah house after what y'all did in Chicago?
MIKE: Fuck Chicago, Tippit! You got a [goddammed ] PLANTATION right out in the open! You put The Plan in danger for the sake of a quick buck! Anybody else know about this? Blue? Higgy?
backwoodsï¼éä¸ä½¬: villagers (insulting)
uneducated jack-assï¼è ¢æ: fool, idiot
cartel: éåï¼group corporation
goddamnedï¼æ»äººé : dead man’s head
Thanks again, ææ³°å»¶! You’ve been a great help! Hope you like how the final came out, here. Please thank your friends again for the help with this translation!
