    Geralt remained silent. Tired, he had nothing to say. “How... How will it happen?” he asked her at last, coldly and without emotion. “I will take you by the hand,” she replied, looking him straight in the eye. “I will take you by the hand and lead you across the meadow, through a cold and wet fog.” “And after? What is there beyond the fog?” “Nothing,” she replied, smiling. “After that, there is nothing.”

    Can someone translate this Polish TV show? I'm curious because he mentioned Normandy (1:37):



    Did Polish troops also take part in the Normandy campaign in 1944?

    It's not a TV show. Somebody took the vision from an old TV programme for children and added a voice overlay laden with foul language, for humorous purposes I suppose. Around the time you mentioned one of the characters is threatening another with battery: 'or else I'll make Normandy beach out of your gob.' It isn't one bit funnier in original than in my translation.

    As for Polish participation in the Normandy campaign, perhaps check out this google-translated article, where it's summarised.

    It's an old-fashioned colloquial word meaning 'argue' or 'quarrel.' It's a reflexive verb (chandryczyć się), so the pronoun się must always go with it somewhere in the utterance, usually directly after the verb.

    Dziękuję! It's cool that the reflexive pronoun starts with an s like in Swedish (at least for third person singular and plural); we spell it »sig«. Can it be placed before the verb (like how they do it in Romance languages)?
