IMDB Contribution reference  200607-073809-191000 - Status Declined

I attempted to submit a quote for ""Gaki no tsukai ya arahende!!" (1989) {Batsu Games - Hospital}" (link https://contribute.imdb.com/title/tt2212281/ - this quote was marked as "Declined".

The original episode was broadcast in Japanese; however, I provided a translated quote per a video link I used as a source. I also provided this link in the "Explanation" section (Video reference - https://youtu.be/sdluEuFykdo?t=81) as proof of the quotes happening.

I do not feel that the quote should have been "declined" because I believe this is a significant quote that came from the episode; maybe one or two years ago I provided similar quotes to another "Gaki no tsukai..." episode entry without the same issue happening.

Quote in question:

[translation; Heipo is apologising to actress Megumi for his unprofessional conduct]
Heipo (Toshihide Saitô): [reading the letter] "I, the world-famous Doctor Heipo, would like to give a sincere apology to my patient, Megumi, for my inappropriate behaviour."
[Hamada, Matsumoto, Endo and Tanaka nod in agreement]
Heipo (Toshihide Saitô): [continuing with the letter] "The public perceives Megumi as a smart woman with many talents, but she's nothing more than a former pin-up girl who can sandwich things with her boobs."
[Hamada and Matsumoto laugh; Tanaka barely holds his laugh in]
Voice-over (unknown): Matsumoto, Hamada - *OUT*.



EDIT, 20 June 2020
Issue has not been resolved; see also below additional "declined" submissions:
