Aeon Flux: The Purge questiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
In that one scene a bit after aeon wakes up in the chair on the stage, and trevor tells one of his [?children] to 'go do what we talked about' what does she say? "Mutatis Mutandis, he did what -needed- to be done."
what's the first part of that actually say?
also, i think the nursry rhyme goes:
Blinks minx, the old witch winks, the fat begins to fry. Nobody home but jumping Jone, father mother and I. Stick, stock, stone dead; blind men can't see. Every knave must have a slave, you or I must be he.

As far as I can tell all the girl says is "Mutatis Mutandis, he did what was needed to be done" Aeon then replies "Have I been implanted?" and the girl says "Have you"? Btw, you answered a question for me, I never knew what mutatis mutandis was. After reading this I looked it up and found out it's Latin and means "that having been changed which had to be changed". The little thugs speak latin!

The root of the word mutation? I took it to mean the destruction of mutation, or perhaps the mutation of mutation. Although not speaking latin this was mearly a guess. So I wait, and wait then somebody defines it. The meaning is quite similar don't you find. I think that Mark uses to much licence.

I love that nursery rhyme!

I hereby propose a massive and pointlessly violent expedition to kidnap everyone who had a writing credit on 'The Purge' and hang them up by their thumbs until they tell us *exactly* what the first two syllables of that rhyme are. I've seen a thousand phonetically similar offerings, but never two that agree...

i'm fairly 100% sure that it says 'mutatis mutandis' i guessed that to begin with (guessed the spelling too) and it appears as though i'm right
also a google search came up with this http://www.mutatismutandis.org/
makes sense, no?

I think he means the "hinks minks" rhyme. Hey look, I answered it!
