Bob's Burgers

In this extract from "Bob's Burgers", we see a comedic situation where someone imposes themselves as interpreter. Although the idea of needing an interpreter because of bitten tongue is a joke, this illustrates the dangers of having a close one acting as an interpreter. She uses the 3rd person to relay the speech, and has an interest in distorting the conversation to her benefit. It reminds us how even with all the good intentions a close one may have, they are unlikely to match the quality and accuracy of a professional interpreter.
