In the episode "Keep Your Enemies Closer," the guard says a word at Oliver, then says it again.

It sounded something like 'seavoy'. What does this mean?


The episode transcript indicates that the word spoken was the Russian word zhivey (живей).

Google suggests that the best translation is "Come on!" or possibly "Look alive!".

  • I think, given the context, that the examples of "Look Alive!" and "Step on it!" are more appropriate. Nov 21 '16 at 17:11
  • @DisturbedNeo - I suspect it's intended to be slightly ruder ("oi, get up!")
