Nana movie ~ Reira's english....  
Hey guys, remember when Reira says that one english line in the movie and we were like, 'wtf did she just say? Did you catch that either??" I finally figured it out!!

She said, "Even Homer sometimes nods. It's a saying." Heeeeeeeee. Winner is me!

It's theoretically this saying that the japanese think is popular in english. I've never heard of anyone who knows it, so not sure how true that is. ^^;; But it means that even the experts make mistakes, or so. ^^ Which is pretty much what the other guy was saying right before her line anyways. XD; Only he was saying it in Japanese.. XDXD

They talk about it here: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Japanese_proverbs

I know that phrase, but I did study Classics for two years, so I do score unusually high on the geek-o-meter. XD Homer => poet associated with the Iliad and Odyssey => greatest works of literature in Western world etc etc, so if he can make a mistake, anyone can.

But it's not exactly a phrase the average person would come out with, lol!

Wow! You are great. I couldn't even find that line in the NANA movie novel. Haha ... Thanks. Actually, I watched the movie in cinema and I don't understand most of the things they said, that's why end up buying that novel.

I saw it in the theater too and I was really confused. So were the people that I was with!!

Wow you're really good, if you can understand the novel better than the movie! I can't read japanese very well, nor speak well, but listening is a little better. XD

Haha. Not like that. I only look at the "dialogue" part of the Novel. :P
