& Hello, friends! (Not "fiends," mind you.) I'm struggling to understand the first 30 seconds of this anime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IGBVXLfmm8&t=10s

Could anyone please listen to its first portion and correct my dictation attempt shown below? Thank you very much for your time.

My attempt (from the 10-second to the 40-second point)

Hey! Fei Long! Uh, man, what's this? Nothing. Looks like fun, that's all! Fun? Yeah! The dragons forced a schmuck into the ring. He was dumb enough to shoot off his big mouth, you know. Hey, I didn't say anything. Fighters don't take smart-ass remarks selectively(???) around here, chicken! You can pack up your words, can't you? Ahh, that's interesting! Maybe showbiz turned into big stuff. But this stuff brings you back, doesn't it, huh? Keep your eye on the new guy. He looks good!

    It's not available in my country (USA). Also, we don't do proofreading or transcriptions. Maybe if you had a question about a particular word or sentence, it would be okay. But at the moment, it's also too broad. – Em. Aug 28 '17 at 1:52
  • Oh, so you don't proofreading or transcriptions? I thought you did, because some other members and I myself have posted similar requests before and people kindly responded. Here's one example:ell.stackexchange.com/questions/109483/… – OED Loves Me Not Aug 28 '17 at 1:57
  • Sometimes they're not closed--they slip by. I've answered some myself. But this one and that one are both too broad and should be closed, in my opinion. – Em. Aug 28 '17 at 2:14
  • I see. I understand. Thank you for your comment, Max. – OED Loves Me Not Aug 28 '17 at 2:41

In your original transcript, you have

Hey! Fei Long! Uh, man, what's this? Nothing. Looks like fun, that's all! Fun? Yeah! The dragons forced a schmuck into the ring. He was dumb enough to shoot off his big mouth , you know. Hey, I didn't say anything. Fighters don't take smart-ass remarks selectively around here, chicken! You can pack up your words, can't you? Ahh, that's interesting! Maybe showbiz turned into big stuff. But this stuff brings you back, doesn't it, huh? Keep your eye on the new guy. He looks good!

The errors are listed here, maybe it will help your listening and understanding. Most seem to be due to not knowing what phrase is usually used in a circumstance, which will come with practice.

Looks like fun -> A little extra fun
The dragons forced a -> They're dragging some poor
He was dumb -> And he was dumb
selectively -> lightly
pack up -> back up
turned into big stuff -> turned you into a big star
