    Really? I'm genuinely surprised. I listened several times and I definitely couldn't hear the complete definite article. What seemed to be conspicuous in its absence was the "y" sound we should hear between "the" and "ice".

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Well, it's pronounced "th'ice", as others have noted. My American ears hear that as a common way to say "the ice", so I hear both words.
    I am not a teacher.

    Ah, yes, "th'ice" is how I transcribed it earlier in the thread.

    I like his "Don't think! Feel," which is quite clear.

    Re: two lines by B. Lee and J. Franciscus

    It's got to be this:

    Did the ice help?
    It helped the bruises but I got frostbite.

    The first word of the response (It) doesn't sound clear, but given the context, I'm convinced that the above transcription is accurate.

    Hmm.
    It does sound like can't help the bruises, doesn't it?

    A bit, yes, but that doesn't make sense.
