Can someone help me understand Astro's english dialect?

Postby Strange Wings » 2 years ago

There are at least two episodes from the 80's series where Astro mumbles a tiny bit too much for me to understand him correctly.
Can anyone help me out? I hope it's ok to rely on Youtube as source for the episodes in question:

This one is from "The Monster Of Clarken". Does someone understand what Astro's saying? It's right after Peppie's line "I'm designed to move about in the water, it's easier like this!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWPXz4l0Lxs&t=1018
Next one is "Astro's First Love". Astro's line in question appears right after Dr. Rindolf's line "I have a hundred perfect models".
Did someone catch that? It sounded to me like "if you wanna fight, you can have it", but wasn't sure about it.

They're obviously no major issue, but they have bugged me for many years...
Thanks a lot for your help! :D

I guess Astro says "I bet you can really move" in the first video, but I might be wrong.

That's about what I understood too, but I wasn't quite sure. Thanks! :-)

AstroAllies is right: he says "I'll (or I) bet you can really move!" in the first video.

In the second video he says "You won't if I can help it!".
