Una pregunta para los hispanohablantes

¿Qué palabras en Inglés os resultan más difíciles de traducir? Naturalmente, esta lista se incluyen los falsos amigos (por ejemplo "embarrass" o "sensible"), pero ¿qué otras palabras han causado dificultades?

En un periódico gratis vi hoy el título "Cuatro flashback y un atropello". El artículo también usa la palabra prestada "flashback", así que me parece probable que no haya buena alternativa.

I'm not good when it comes to translate some phrasal verbs. Sometimes they're confusing.

@Lou Ann: it depends on the preposition that accompanies it.

On the same vein, perhaps "set"?
