    In the translation, the verb capturar is used not pegar. What gives?
    Also, why is esgotar substituted for se-acabar?
    And why Vai ate instead of Andar? Are you guys using a computer to translate?:)

      Hi Herman, you are right, the transcription doesn’t fit the recording 100%. Sorry about that. What happens is that we initially write the dialogs, but then the voice actors have the liberty to improvise and say things the way that they want to when we do the recording. I accidentally published the original version, and not the modified one that the voice actors actually said. Truth told, it’s always educational for me to see where they make the changes, but unfortunately, this time we didn’t update the dialog. I’ll try to get the updated version changed soon.
