In the film The Avengers, Black Widow is a Russian super-spy. In the scene that introduces her, it ends with her receiving orders to bring in Dr. Bruce Banner. After receiving these orders, the scene ends with her saying something in a foreign language, presumably a swear word. What did she say, and what's the translation to English?

Do you know what she's saying before she gets the call? –  user2055 Sep 16 '12 at 5:16

As I remember she said "bozhe moi"(Боже мой) which would be "My God" or better put "Oh My god!" and obviously it is Russian.

To hear it pronounced Google translate

It's also Colossus' favorite exclamation in the X-men comics –  Kevin Jun 18 '12 at 16:47

According an unofficial script she said the following:

Romanoff: боже мой. (Pronounced Bozhe moĭ - Russian for, 'my God'.)

I thought it was closer to "Боже мой" - an interjection "Oh goodness", "Oh my", or "My God" - but its the same sort of thing.

"бог"(bog) would be Russian for God, but I think she definitely says "Боже мой" (bozhe moi). Though essentially they mean the same thing.

Thanks for the romanizations in your alternative, next time I see the movie I'll keep an ear out. –  Keen Jun 17 '12 at 2:41
