    Sharpen the pencil...

    Помимо того, что это просто значит "заострить карандаш", как еще переводится это выражение...?

    Prices are out James, sharpen that pencil.
    I pay cash, so sharpen that pencil.

    Basically he means "get ready" [to write].
    Literally it is заострить карандаш.

    "заточи карандаш"

    But, the expression taken as a whole, could have some other meaning...

    Something like "prices are posted, get ready for shopping?" - Just a guess.
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
