Listen as many times as you need to, and try to fill in as many gaps as you can.

I able visualise with tables people , and I couldn't like, "This !".

I been able to visualise with tables chairs people in it, and I couldn't just like, "This disaster!".

About the sentence

...so I was just like, "This is a disaster!"

The phrase I was like, he was like, she was like etc is a common and useful way of introducing direct speech (a quote). In informal conversation, this is often more natural than using reported speech ("I said it was a disaster").
