In this clip the klingon takes a bottle and says vItlhutlh vIneH I want to trink it.

At the register

This video shows a scene in a supermarket. The cashier puts a sign on the band with the text "register closed", followed by klingon signs known as pIqaD. But this isn't Klingon, but just the sentence "Sie uns auch' Ihe service team" (originally SIe unS auchH' IHr ServIche team, _f*** you too, your service team*).


In this clip, the klingon enters a bar and sings the last two lines of the Klingon drinking song.
