- Nadie.
- Vamos, a mí no.
- No, no, de verdad, que... yo quise decir otra cosa. Yo dije sonamos, y como no soy corneta no sueno nada. Entonces es como un saca y ponga que le dicen, ¿vio?

il s'agit d'un jeu de mots.
sonamos = le bruit court, circule que.
como no soy corneta no sueno nada = vu que je ne suis pas un cor je ne sonne rien.
le cor est un ancien cornet que les soldats ou les postillons utilisaient pour sonner l'alarme ou pour attirer l'attention.

Sonamos quiere decir que algo salió mal, que fracasó.

Perdón, me olvidé Corneta: Cafteur, mouchard, cafard. Corneta tiene el sentido de \"bocón, soplón\"
