Simple question about addressing to her





Da Rossa
I'm Brazilian so I'm not 100% familiar to some expressions used in the US or countries that speak English. I just watched an episode of Heroes in which the japanese guy, Hiro's friend, shows up at Nikki's place and says, in a defeated mood: "I wanted you to help me". The girl's answer made it clear that she got the message that the jap was fond of her and she didn't want anything with him, so he called him off by saying "I'm the wrong girl blablabla". But saying "I want you to help me" is normally taken that way?? I mean, when you're interested in someone is it coherent to say 'hey, actually I love you, so I want you to help me' if the intention is to make it clear (not as clear as I love you, I want you, and I wanna paint your lips with my tongue) or was it a misuse of the language by the japanese?
Thanks!

taken out of the whole story? What happend in the previous episode? Can have something to do with that.

But as you put it now, I've never heard of it before, that answer aint logical at all if you just use those words "I want to help you" so I guess it has something to do with the previous episodes. She had a reason of answering the way she did.

Yeah I forgot to mention: she was kind-of-a porn actress that sold live performances through the webcam. One of her customers was this japanese that watched her from Tokyo. Eventually he comes to Vegas, where she lives, then he recognizes her in a Casino. He follows her to her home and says the words.

makes it abit clearer now then Smile but it should be more story behind this, since "I want you to help me" must come from someplace.. sounds pretty much like this fella never had sex or lost his posibility of getting an erection.. he have seen her on the web and feels that she is the right one.. that would make the statement pretty clear.. otherwise I dunno..

However if it's something like that I just wrote.. it's nothing wrong with that way of speaking, but also, I've seen some rly weird subtitles from japanes series that's just gramatic wrong Smile
Da Rossa
No, he spoke in English. Smile

Any more ideas? Tks
Azmo

Azmo
