comment Translating the Jive dialogue
Why not include the subtitles for the last few lines? Second Jive Dude: What it is, big mama? My mama no raise no dummies. I dug her rap! [Ma'am, I'm not stupid. I understand what she just said.] Jive Lady: Cut me some slack, Jack! Chump don' want no help, chump don't GET da help! [Give me a break! If you don't want help, I won't help you!] First Jive Dude: Say 'e can't hang, say seven up! [Damn, she implied that he didn't understand!] Jive Lady: Jive-ass dude don't got no brains anyhow! Shiiiiit. [Nevermind. He's stupid, anyway.]

+1 great question! IMHO this is one of the best comedy scenes of all time. "Oh, stewardess? I speak jive." LMAO!

comment What was the purpose of Candie's handshake in Django Unchained?
I would guess the "grabbing it in a certain spot" is a reaction to Candie's grabbing it "full fisted." In other words, Schultz was so disgusted by Candie that he minimized his contact with the pen Candie just man-handled.
