English term or phrase:Wake up and smell the coffee
In the film a woman is arguing with her family and she takes the Lord's name in vain. Her grandmother tells her that the Lord's name is not going to be taken in vain in that house, and the woman answers: Wake up and smell the coffe. The place is Texas and the characters use idiomatic expressions almost all the time. I would like to find a similar saying or phrase in Spanish.
Thanks a lot Jan!
All the answers were really good, but I chose yours since it is the bests that fits the context. The girl says: ¿En qué mundo vives abuela? Este es el siglo veinte. Thank you a lot for helping me!!! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
