Best German pick up line.

The speaker did not say "du," so I got it wrong when I shouldn't have.

"Du" is cut off (not heard) unless the speaker is slowed down.

The use of the word "hast" indicates "du" regardless of its inclusion.

Why would I have a nun?!

I want your Schwester!

How would you say then: Do you have one sister ?

The same, with stress on "eine"

You have a sister ? Was given wrong ....

That would be "Du hast eine Schwester" if you are using it to express surprise. If you are using it as a shortened version of "Do you have a sister", then I don't know if it would be translated this way or not. Maybe a native speaker could verify that.
