After checking out some these things on the Web way back I came to the conclusion that nobody in China has any idea what anybody else is saying, which may not be bad.

Well, of course they can't understand each other, they all speak Chinese!

I thought she speaks Cantonese...

I'm from Hong Kong and I'm very sure Da Sei Nei (such as from the Amazonian Female episode), that it's cantonese. If she was speaking Mandarin it would have been pronounced Da Si(like spanish yes) Ni(like "need" ), not Da Sei(like "say" ) Nei(like "nay" )

According to the commentary it is in fact Cantonese. Case closed, I'm going home.

This is from an interview with several cast members:

Lauren Tom: I usually throw the Chinese swearing in there to crack everyone up. I taught Billy (West) how to do it and he's perfect at it.

The Cantonese viewers out there actually know what I'm saying, it's not made up. So I make sure it's stuff like, "I'm going to beat him to death!"

But I only know certain phrases, because I'm not fluent. I only know the things that were said to me when I was little. Lovely things like, "I'm going to chop your head off!"

Maurice LaMarche: So nothing sexual, or to do with excrement, then. Just horrific violence. We've all seen that on TV.
