German term or phrase: Ich geh also...
Ich geh also frosch und kradi wegs in unseres Haus, und was seh ich nichts. Alles still und dunkel. Na denk ich Räuber, mach das Licht abhofen.

It's from a movie.

English translation:So, I'm walking straight into our house briskly and ...
Explanation:
what do I see: Nothing!

I think that the following was said:

Ich gehe also forsch und geradewegs in unser Haus, und was sehe ich? Nichts!
... Na, denke ich, Räuber! Mach das Licht an/aus (?). Hoffen! (Mach das Licht 'ab' doesn't make much sense, maybe is was 'Stell das Licht ab'? (turn the light off.) But it was dark, wasn't it!

So, here we go:

'So, I'm walking straight into our house briskly, and what do I see: Nothing!
It's all dark and quiet.
Well, I think: Robbers/burglars/intruders?
and turn the lights on.(off?)'

forsch (nice typo ! :-)) also means self-assertively, forcefully.

Hoping to help.
regards, Uschi

And so I go....


Explanation:
A loose translation of "ich geh also". "Also" is one of those particles that is often difficult to translate. Are you sure that the rest is correctly transliterated? "frosch", "kradi", and "abhofen" do not fit here. Not translating these words, you have: "And so I go ..... into our house, and I see nothing. Everything quiet and dark. Oh, I think, robbers! I turn the light...."
