Context: Characters discuss bets before the game of rock-paper-scissors.

…で 何を賭けるんですの?


Netflix translation: "If you win, we'll do anything you want".

It seems like there's a verb like する missing from the sentence, but then what role does すべてのもう play here and what does it mean, exactly? Without the の, すべて would be an adverb for する but in this case it's a noun instead, no?

Interestingly enough, even Google can't find this construction. Maybe it's supposed to be written in kanji?


This sentence has an idiom, 要求を飲む, meaning "to accept one's demand". すべて is an adverb that modifies 飲む. See the fourth definition in this entry. (BTW 要求をする does not make sense.)

  • Thanks a lot, as always :) Do you have any idea why it's written as のもう instead of のむ? Feb 13 at 17:26

    @LonelyDriver 飲もう is the volitional form of 飲む
