Some of the Things Louie’s Girlfriend Said to Him in Hungarian Translated Into English

In Season 4 of Louie, the eponymous sad-sack character fell hard in love with Amia, the niece of his older Hungarian neighbor. Amia, played by the incredibly talented Eszter Balint, didn’t speak any English nor did Louie speak any Hungarian, which made communication challenging for them. Additionally, show did not provide subtitles to Amia’s half of the conversation, which kept the audience as confused as Louie. Slate has since translated some of these conversations into English, giving a much fuller perspective of the relationship and how much they really did care for one another.
