It takes one to know one

Editrice. Tradutrice. Et cetera.

Seorang rekan penerjemah bertanya: Pernah dengar it takes one to know one?

Kedua rujukan di bawah ini saling mendukung. Menurut freedictionary:

(It) takes one to know one.Inf. You are one also.

Menurut The Phrase Finder:

: : Here is another phrase: “He says that Steve, of all people, is a complete idiot.” “Well, that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”

: Two more equivalent phrases:
: “Look who’s talking.”
: “YOU should talk!”

Seperti biasa, yang sukar adalah memadankan (secara pas) bahasa Indonesianya. Rekan tadi mengatakan, konteksnya seorang cucu menyapa kakeknya, “Hi, Grumpy!” Kemudian dijawab, “It take one to know one.”

Usulan saya semula sbb:
