Judge Smails: It’s easy to grin / When your ship comes in / And you’ve got the stock market beat. / But the man worthwhile, / Is the man who can smile, / When his shorts aren’t too tight in the seat.

Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe), a teen down on his luck, works as a caddy at the snob-infested Bushwood Country Club to raise money for his college education. In an attempt to gain votes for a college scholarship reserved for caddies, Noonan volunteers to caddy for a prominent and influential club member (Ted Knight). Meanwhile, Danny struggles to prepare for the high pressure Caddy Day golf tournament while absorbing New Age advice from wealthy golf guru Ty Webb (Chevy Chase).

richter schmunzelt: es ist leicht zu grinsen / wenn dein schiff ankommt / und du den börsentakt hast. / aber der Mann, der sich lohnt, / ist der Mann, der lächeln kann, / wenn seine Shorts nicht zu eng im Sitz sind.

Ο δικαστής smails είναι εύκολο να χαμογελάσετε όταν μπαίνει το πλοίο σας και έχετε κερδίσει το χρηματιστήριο. αλλά ο άντρας που αξίζει, είναι ο άνθρωπος που μπορεί να χαμογελάσει, όταν το σορτς του είναι πολύ στενό στο κάθισμα.

जज smails: मुस्कुराना आसान है / जब आपका जहाज आता है / और आपको शेयर बाजार हरा मिल गया है। / लेकिन वह आदमी सार्थक है, / वह आदमी है जो मुस्कुरा सकता है, / जब उसके शॉर्ट्स सीट पर बहुत तंग नहीं होते हैं।

dommer smails: det er lett å glise / når skipet ditt kommer inn / og du har børstakt. / men mannen er verdt, / er mannen som kan smile, / når shortsen ikke er for stram i setet.

засуджуйте листи, це легко посміхатися, коли ваш корабель заходить, і у вас є біт на фондовому ринку. але чоловік вартий того, хто вміє посміхатися, коли його шорти занадто тісні на сидінні.
