    Unrecognized phrases from the video

    Hello.

    I have a problem with recognizing some phrases from this video:


    1. 0:58
    - That sound you hear is people urinating after a lot of Guinness. Is that correct?
    - It is not correct. It's a [?????]
    - Oh, that's a waterfall, sorry.

    2. 1:45

    - So this is what makes the Guinness, the barley, [?????]
    - It is indeed.
    - Do cats ever wondering here and trying...
    - No, [?????]
    - Good, cause it looks a lot like a... you know... place a cat would go.

    3. 4:56

    I don't understand what the man on the left is saying.

    4) 6:08

    There's a noizy backround sound of audience cheering, so it's hard for me to recognize the words that man is pronouncing

    5) 6:20

    - Try it again, try it again, [?????]

    6) 6:35

    -Hello, Pia. You well done, you were brilliant! [?????] [to 6:45]

    --------------

    Thanks! :)

    0:58: It's the sound of our only/lonely (?) waterfall.
    1:45: Do cats ever wander in here and try ...?
    No, they take off (?)
    4:56 (the man on the left): "Mr O'Brien. You're very welcome."
    "I'm waiting for you to say "Feargal, please show me how to pour one."
    "There's six fantastic steps. Can you do six steps?
    ???? "You feel like the phone as well" (I realise that makes no sense.)
    "Step 1/So 1 is the glass."
    "The first thing you didn't do is follow instructions."
    "Duh-duh-duh (like "no, no, no"). You're not allowed to do that until you get it perfect."
    "No, you see what men do when they drink Guinness ... duh-duh-duh ..."
    "Never look down at the pint of Guinness cos it's bad manners. Always look to the horizon."
    "Put your elbow up and pull the liquid through the head".
    "Yes. Tilt the glass ... (unintelligible)"
    6:20 (man on the left) "Try again. Try again but try to keep the ..."

    6:35: Hello, Pia. You ... Well done, you were brilliant. You'll have to come up and meet him. He's definitely going to be here for a while."

    Re: Unrecognized phrases from the video

    Thank you!
    Some moments became clear to me.

    It's really hard to recognize what the woman at 0:58 is saying... At first I thought she's saying something like, "It's the sound of our loading waterfall" but... I've never seen the construction like this..."loading wonderfall"... How do you understand that?...

    [I'm learning English now, so, sorry for possible grammar mistakes in my post ]

    Re: Unrecognized phrases from the video

    I couldn't make it out either. As I wrote in my first post, it sounded like either "It's the sound of our only waterfall" or "It's the sound of our lonely waterfall". Neither of them make sense. I listened to it about ten times but it didn't get any clearer.

    I think he said, 'So there's a lot of just falling in a hole and then extending my neck and floa floating out of here.'

    Re: Unrecognized phrases from the video

    Check out that massive beak on this bird. This ... this ... it's kind of a parrot. It's a black-palmed cockatoo ...


    Note that I think he meant to say "It's kind of a parrot" but it sounds like "It's kinda parrot". Perhaps he meant to say "It's a kind of parrot".
