confused by one of Norm's lines...
« on: April 12, 2012, 03:05:32 pm »
When Jake and Norm first link to their Avatars and Jake sort of jumps the gun, so to speak and stands up before the doctor's are ready for him to stand, Norm says (seemingly randomly) "By the Numbers!"

Why does he say this? what does he mean by this?  :-\ ???

(Although I can't remember Norm saying it...) Maybe he wanted to tell Jake to follow the sequence of instructions "identified by numbers", not to be in a hurry but to take it easy and keep the order of things.  ???

I found the line.
It was translated to German "an die Vorschriften halten" which meens loosely "stand to the regulations", "obey the rules".
He just wants to calm Jake.

Maybe... I only ever caught the line because I watch with the Closed Captioning on.

This is what is said during that scene (First Awakening):

Quote
Max: Guys, get him back on the gurney now.
Male Med Tech: Listen to me. For your own safety, you need to sit down. You need time to adjust to the avatar... whoa! Jake! God, Jake, watch your tail!
Jake: (laughs) yeah!
Male Med Tech: Sedate! Sedate him! A thousand milligrams of Supitocam! Stat!
Max: Guys! Guys! Whoa! Whoa!
Norm: By the numbers.
Max: Jake! Listen to me!
Norm: Jake. Come on.
Max: You're not used to your Avatar body. This is dangerous.
Jake: This is great.
Norm: Come on. They're gonna put you out!
Max: Jake? Jake, listen to me.
(Jake laughs, runs outside)

"by the numbers" is approximately equal to "by the book" :)

I think this is the correct answer. In Czech dubbing, Norm says: Do not hurry, Jake, there, there!
