Another one of Minako's original quote mess-ups makes no sense to me. This one's from the part where she and Usagi are fighting over Taiki's notebook:
Minako: Didn't you know that if you dig out the gold, you'll make a safe hit?
Taiki: Don't you mean "first come, first served?"

Okay...what, Minako? Her line makes no sense! I'm not sure if I like it or not, but it's pretty silly and nonsensical.
That line would probably make more sense for a person who could understand Japanese. I bet if there was a subtitle showing the two different phrases in Japanese, they would be really similar except for a single word.
Hmm, I'll have to watch that scene again in Japanese and see if the two phrases sound similar or not.

Edit: I watched, and couldn't tell. Maybe if I had more than just a semester of Japanese class...

I'm not sure how correct I have this. If anyone knows a better translation or description of how this went, please let me know.

Episode 83

The senshi just find out that Chibi-usa is Usagi and Mamoru's daughter.

Rei: "What day, what month, what year did THIS happen?"

Mamoru and Usagi blush bright read.

you gotta love Rei when she gets over excited about things.

LMAO I love that scene, and I wish they had kept it.
As far as I know, you translated it correctly.

This one is from the episode where Minako is working as an assistant for the Three Lights.

Usagi: What're they doing?
Minako: Voice Cleaning.
Usagi: Breast cleaning?
Minako: Why would they be cleaning their breasts?!

Again it's a joke about the Japanese language here. Has anyone else noticed that Sailor Stars seems to be the season with the most humor in it? Most of the responses to this thread usually have something about the Three Lights or something that one of the Senshi did silly in the Sailor Stars season.

I've always liked the scene where professor Tomoe is waiting outside his house with his groceries while the Sailor Senshi are defeating the youma inside. After awhile he gets bored and eats ALL of the groceries.

I also like this line from episode 181

Seiya: Come with me tomorrow, you have nothing to do right?
Usagi: What are you talking about! I have to eat breakfast, and watch TV, and read manga, and eat snacks, and play games..
Seiya: So you're free.

And 184 when Seiya wants to "share something special" just between the two of them.

Usagi: Between us? Chibi Chibi is here too! Besides, I have Mamoru...
Seiya: I think you've misunderstood.
Usagi: That's you! You're thinking of something erotic, aren't you?
Chibi: ...erotic, aren't you? (Usagi bumps her head)

LOL Unless it was subtitled incorrectly, Minako said "voice training" not "voice cleaning"

Edit: Yeah Stars seems to have the most jokes in it, especially sexual related ones XD

I love Tux. I love all of Tux's speeches. I can fully explain the winter speech as well.

Anyway, some lines I remember from my fansubs.

------------------

Youma: Question number 1. The genius Newton question. Why did the apple fall from the tree?

Sailor Moon: Huh? That's because... Don't ask me, ask the apple.

A few lines later

Sailor Moon: Wait! I know! It's because the typhoon flew in!

---------------------

The line about asking the apple is exactly what I would say! I am exactly like Usagi.

---------------------

*in preview*

Usagi: Mamoru-san and I have a date at the virgin real tea thingy.

Luna: That's virtual reality theather.

---------

*When Usagi throws a dumpling at him*

*Mamoru catches it*

Mamoru: How generous of you. I didn't know you were so kind. Thank you for the dumpling.

-----------

Sailor Moon: The supermarket is the source of healthy food, where people get fresh vegetables, and beef for shabu shabu.

Then...

Tuxedo Kamen: The supermarket is the source of healthy food, where people get fresh vegetables, and beef for shabu shabu.

Sailor Moon: Exactly the same line as me! We really are perfect together!

-------------

Usagi and Mamoru are my favorite couple ever and I love all the cute lines they say together, and every time they kiss and hug I always feel so warm.

--------------------

I need to check my fansubs for some more lines.
Usagi and Mamoru are my favorite couple ever. Usagi and Mamoru forever!

Episode 159;
Moon: You're bothering the love of my only daughter!
Mars: You're bothering the first love of a young girl!
Jupiter: You're bothering the love of her older crush!
Venus: You're bothering her love for two-timing!
(Chibimoon starts to wonder what they mean)
Mercury: You're bothering a case of textbook love!

I love that part. I also love the talk at the cafe in the same episode.

edit:
Episode 83

The senshi just find out that Chibi-usa is Usagi and Mamoru's daughter.

Rei: "What day, what month, what year did THIS happen?"

Mamoru and Usagi blush bright read.

And then when I put it on, I suddenly got this feeling of inner peace. I can´t put it into words. I feel... safe. Like this is where I was meant to be. Like I´d found the key to true happiness.

And then he starts freaking out about being late. Best. Scene. Ever.
XD I practically died at that scene. "OH MY GOD!!!!" :lol:

One scene that I love from 178:

Minako (referring to Yaten): A cat is okay...a cat can take a bath with him...sleep in the same bed as him...enjoy his tickling...and more!
Makoto: Minako, you have a nosebleed.
Minako: I WANNA BE A CAT!!

I thought a scene from episode 109 was real funny.

Eudial: Doorknobder! Get rid of them!
Doorknobder: Huh?
Eudial: Don't huh me!
Doorknobder: But I wasn't made for combat--
Eudial: Just do it!
Doorknobder: Hai! Doorknobder Desperation Attack!

I always laugh my ass off when I see that. :lol:

one of my favorites is in super s when the amozoness quarted and zirconia are talking and palla palla is playing with her dolls. it was
something like the doll's teeth were hurting, so palla palla rips her head off. "now it doesn't hurt anymore! :D " lmao.

also in stars, when neptune and uranus are standing o the table.

aluminum sirian: "OMG i dont belive it! shoes on the table!" (or something like that)

haruka:"O.O sorry, it was an accident..."

Do unintentionally funny translations count?

I took the following screencap from the VKLL sub of episode 186.

I really think this line could have been phrased better...
Amazoness! Because men seldom make passes at girls who routinely kill men.

-The Twister scene in S. I almost fell off the bed watching it but the best part is when Tomoe takes Mimet's place in the game.

-Eudial's death. Not the dying part but when Mimet says all her evil lines so cute. "Bye Eudial-sempai!"

-When Hawks-Eye and Tigers-Eye see Fish-Eye for the first time in one of his disguises and they start arguing over why the other is blushing. Such a cute, funny moment.

-Yuuchiro's sabotage of Mamoru's bath. That crazy look he had...priceless.

I like the second part of her excuse: "My speciality is in security." It reminds me of John Vernon's line from Airplane II:

Lawyer: "Can you give us your impression of Mr. Striker?"
Vernon: "I'm sorry, I don't do impressions, my training is in psychiatry."

Anyway, I like this one from SuperS:

-"Hi. Tsuna-wataru desu."
-"Sailor Moon desu."
-"Sailor Chibimoon desu."
-(both) "DAKARA NANI?!"
Things I think Are Funny Early in the Morning: If Batman were a Smurf: "Quick, Robin! We must smurf down to the Batcave and smurf the Batplane! Then we must smurf the batsmurf so we can smurf where the Joker is smurfing!"

Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

I've only watched the first twenty-two episodes, but I loved this quote from episode 11.

Usagi: Anyway, what's a guy doing on a toy train all by himself?! Could it be you're actually a really big loser?! You make me laugh! Hahaha! It's so funny, my tummy hurts!

Ho-ho-holy shit, Usagi put the smackdown on Mamoru. I also liked the derisive laughter; it's one of those instances where English speakers can get the full understanding of what's said in the same way Japanese viewers did.

Episode 11 (about Princess Dream and Dreamland) is one of my favorites! And the quote that you posted is also one of my favorites too.

Dr. Casey, is the 1st season of Sailor Moon all that you have watched so far? If so you have a lot of great seasons coming your way! And the first season gets much much better towards the end which certainly beats the English dub.
