I'm subtitiling a road rage video where two cars, one after another, are driving in a place where there is no driving (pedestrian zone.) A pedestrian steps in front of them, they stop, and the driver of the first car says:
- I'll back up. Just have that car behind me move first.
To which the pedestrian replies:
- I think he'll understand it now by himself (meaning that he thinks the second driver will understand that he needs to start backing up, so that the first car could back up too.)
So I wanted to ask, is this phrase grammatical or would you say it differently?
- "I think he gets it" or "I think he'll figure it out" or simpy "I think he'll understand"? Or maybe something completely different?
