    Help with "dreams"

    Thanks in advance!

    How would you say the following when a child is going to sleep(what do Russians say to their kids?) Please highlight the stressed vowels.

    Sweet dreams.
    Have a good dream.
    Do you remember your dream?
    Was it a good dream or a bad dream?
    Tell me about your dream.
    Maybe your dream will come true.
    Don't worry, it's only a dream.

    Is there a Russian word for: dreamcatcher
    "A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a person perfected without trials."

    Who says "Have a good dream".

    In Russia dreams are private and shouldn't be talked about therefore this thread should be closed.

    TATY, I wish my Mom would believe in what you said! Every morning she tells me about her dreams, no matter if I want it or not

    I know only one Dreamcatcher, and it's Stephen King's.

    If somebody said to me "Have a good dream", I would taken aback by the level of sappiness. Then I may have to batter them to death with a broom handle.

    "Приятных сновидений"... Mr Collins from "Pride and Prejudice" might wish it

    "мечта" -- usually it's a daydream.

    Mr Collins might not speak Russian.
    Besides if he knew Russian he'd say: Я нижайше прошу доставить мне такое удовольствие, как самым скромным образом пожелать вашей милости наиприятнейших сновидений!
    He's one of my favourite characters by the way!
    Я так думаю.

    OK, then - present-day Russian-speaking Mr Collins would say so o

    By the way one of our neighbours is every inch Mr Collins

    Agree! And I meant not only the book!
    What in particular do you mean? The look or tone or maners or is he so impregnebly stoopid?
    Or did you mean the character played in the P&P 2005' film?
    My mister Collins totally belongs to the BBC 1995' P&P. David Bamber is responsible for his charming apearance!

    My neighbour looks much like an elder copy of Mr Collins from the BBC series. Besides he's incredibly self-confident (so that he even seems to be stupid) and a toady at the same time. When I watched "P&P" first it was pretty weird because of this resemblance.

    I haven't seen the P&P 2005 yet. I'm afraid to do it... Is it worth?

    Nooo, not the 1995 BBC Pride & Predjudgice series! Mother watches it every time they show it.

    If they tightened those corsets any more those poor women's breasts would have exploded.

    BUT YES!!This one!!
    Haven't seen the last neither. All I catched are some scenes shown in promotion and on the Oscar's ceremony, also short sound samples exhibited on Amazon. com. I am very fond of the 1995 version and more than that it's my favorite film ever - I have watched it twelve times at least. I love the music Carl Davis supposed to the action. I can't deny I liked the scenery of the new version and found the music delicious, but I am vilently dissagree with the casting of the new P&P! I can't stand the look of both Darcy and Elizabeth. I was told that K.Nightly played shortcut and dressed in wigs and the costumers had to hide her musculine arms, powered for the previous filming.
    I stay conservative and fully loyal to the old film with Colin Firth and Jeniffer Ehle! Both are my dearest characters as many from Austen's books.

    Well we sheerly turned off the main theme of the topic...
    Я так думаю.
