I'm trying to make out a bit of Afrikaans by "PK" in the movie "The Power of One". It's at 8:47 of this clip below. It begins "Mag ek jou dogter Maria Elisabeth ..." but I can't make out the next few words.

It's a pity the audio is quite poor in the video, but I hear something like: "Mag ek jou dogter Maria Elisabeth sien asseblief?" in English "May I go out with your daughter?" or something similar.

It's not just the video, I have the DVD at home, and it's hard to hear because he talks so fast and she talks over his last few words.

But, listening again, I think you've nailed it, and it makes sense in the context.

I'm glad I could help. I watched it at least 10 times, almost on maximum volume to find out what the guy was saying. :D
