Say What?

Bridget: B-r-i-d-g-e-t. See? Just a good solid Irish Catholic name. No tricky spelling. No extra vowels. Just keeping it simple. Listen, do you want me to talk to your Mum for you?
Jordyn: Oh, I don't know. At least she didn't call me Britt-nee, or Madyson.
Bridget: True that.

Nicolae: Zee how good I am? I am ze best coach! For bronze medal I giff you holiday. I take you to ze beach.
You vant live in America?
Bah! Marta make you clean ze toilets all zummer for a bronze medal!

Daniela: Conda- who?
Florica: Conda....Conda...Conda-something-Rice.
...I don't know.
Just shut your eyes. 
It will all be over in a minute.

Sveta: I'm serious, Olga, ve have saying in ze Motherland- ze shorter ze hair, ze longer ze career.
Oksana: You vant you can borrow my steak knife?

Courtney: See, check it out, Tito. Watch Hils. From here it is a perfectly innocent point-at-scoreboard. But from where 'Bama sits, I am so flipping the bird.

Alicia: It's okay Nast. Adela's gone. You will never have to look at that leo again, I promise.
Nastia: But, but what if she comes back?

Marissa: Okay, I don't think that's distracting her. You kinda look like my Grandpa, though.

Aussies: Please let Starbucks still be open when we're done....please let Starbucks still be open when we're done...please let starbucks......

Suzanne: I tell you what I want...what I really really want! Zigga-zig-ah!
Verona: Yep, really showing your age here, Suz.

Ksenia: Well, I guess I'll do a couple more Olympics, then you know, retire, get married, have a baby, pose for playboy, get some plastic surgery, join parliament.
You know, the usual stuff.

Anamarie: I am sooo bored. All we have done since we got home from Beijing is stand in groups and be photographed clapping. It's like we're being punished.
Where's the party? Where's the dips dammit?! The champagne?!
I miss Pavs.

Gabriela: Oh, ooh Steli, I think I got it! Yep I got it!

Steliana: Good girl. First lesson complete.
I have so much to teach you, Grasshopper.
The art of sleeping with your eyes open is the most valuable skill I can pass on to you in this game. 
More valuable than any side somi.
Use wisely.

Sandra: Lili, how much longer is this thing going to take? This gold-medal-smile is really starting to hurt. I think it's jetlagged.

Lili: Hangs on Sands. Just the presidential handshakes, the mayor's speech, the traditional folk dance, the flowers and the handing out of the keys to the city- then we're good to go.
