Or my daughter and I.

JoBlo Movie Clips
Sitting outside this afternoon on the patio, having a couple of brewskis and talking to Number One daughter and for some reason this scene just comes to mind. Watching it for the umpteenth time, I recall that I wanted to find out what they are saying in Latin, so here we go.
From Quora we have a translation and interpretation:
Latin [followed by literal translation (followed by more interpretive in brackets)]Doc : In vino veritas. [In wine there is truth. (Being drunk makes me tell the truth.)]Ringo : Age quod agis. [Do what you do. (Being drunk makes you a drunkard / it’s good to stick to what you know best.)]Doc : Credat Judaeus Apella, non ego. [This is a quote from the ancient poet Horace] Let the Jew Apella believe it, not me. (Go and tell someone who cares.)Ringo : Juventus stultorum magister. [Youth is the teacher of fools. (Fools need to learn by experience / Perhaps a fool like you needs someone experienced to teach him a lesson.)]Doc : In pace requiescat! [Rest in peace. (Do what you like, it’s your funeral.)]- Owen Williams
Also from Quora we have a little background:
“Rest in peace” This phrase is normally used to address a corpse. Holliday is threatening Ringo. The background is this; both Holliday and Ringo are Southern gentlemen whose lives were ruined by the Civil War. After losing everything they moved West to start over again. A Southern gentleman was well educated, usually able to speak Latin and French. These two recognize each other’s background but this doesn’t make them friends. - John P. Scallan
