    In the transcript to this episode, there appears the mysterious word,che. I can find no translation for this in the dictionary and you do not comment on it when you are going through the text. It could be a mistake but I can not work out what the correct word would be. Given that this is an episode in which there are a lot of Argentinian words and phrases, I wondered if this was another one. Help!

    I’ve decided on: anyway.

      Yes, ‘che’ is a common word used in Argentina in everyday conversation. This article from Wikipedia may help you understand more.
