Hello everybody, I'm watching Groundhog Day, the famous film with Bill Murray. I'm stuck on a dialogue where maybe you can help me. Here is the extract: - Let me ask you guys a question. What if there were no tomorrow? - No tomorrow? That would mean there would be no consequences. There would be no hangovers. We could do whatever we wanted! - That's true. We could do whatever we want. My first question is about the difference between : a- we could do whatever we wanted. b- we could do whatever we want. do you have to use the preterite when you use COULD ? Is there a mistake in one of those sentences? […] thank you.
