I think I resemble that remark! Actually its "ya". You'd probably have to go a little farther west for "yup". It's the scandinavian heritage here in the upper midwest, don'tcha know. Uff da!
You betcha! nmBrooks

Some people think that the movie was an exaggeration of the accent, but it wasn't. Remember the scene where the woman sheriff is driving around the rural town and stops to ask an old man shoveling his driveway some question (just before going out to the cottage and catching the bad guy). He had a strong norwegian accent. He was not an actor but a resident of the town. That's the way he really talks, as do many up here in der nort land.
