Bat.

Oh, ok, coming your mouth, honey.

What is this in the old lady's walo?
What is this? What is this, honey?
It's a meow, meow. It's a cat, right?

What about.....what about...this?
What is this?
What is this in the old lady's walo?

I listened to that for a while. I did hear the part about the spider. I didn't hear "walo" (wallet?), but maybe I didn't listen long enough.

It's interesting that they switch between Chinese and English with no problem.

The part comes from 11:53 (or -2:01, when you count down from it ) :)

I heard 'What did the old lady swallow?'

She did. Her voice rises on the first syllable of the word swallow, which is what might be causing the problem.

Actually, I heard 'odd lady' in English, but she said 'old lady' in Chinese.

The woman is speaking American English with a slight Chinese accent, but her pronunciation is very good and clear.
