Audio lesson 4.2--Idiot?

At the end of audio lesson 4.2, Paul uses a phrase which he translates as "you stupid twit,' ending in "_idiot_" (m) or "_idoite_" (f) in French. I cannot figure out what the first words in that phase are. They sound like "_es bit_." Maybe the word used is "_bête_" (stupid), which I found in a French dictionary?':roll:' Can someone tell me what the full French actually is? This is another example of the problem that the full French texts of the lessons are not available to those of us without an experienced French ear.[/list][/code]

I'm not sure if we're talking about the same lesson. In the first Audio lesson 4.2 the very last sentence that Paul says is: "Non beaucoup de crème idiote!" which is "No, a lot of creme, idiot" Note: All the lessons are written out in french and english, if you log into the members area.

I have the text of the basic dialogue; what I was asking about the part of the lesson that is not in the dialogue but guides the student through the dialogue. Most of the lessons have much more information about the meaning of terms, additional words and phrases, etc. that are not in the simple 5-10 lines of the dialogue itself.
