Corrected entry: When Professor Higgins has turned on three of his recordings to a speed that makes them sound like the chipmunks, it takes three separate switches - one on each - to turn them on, but he only flicks the third switch a second time to stop them all. (The other two aren't anywhere in reach at the time.).
Corrected entry: Prof. Higgins, a world-renowned expert on the English language, makes three grammar/usage errors that would flunk him out of any 9th-grade English class. First: The song "Why Can't the English" contains the line, "By rights they should be taken out and hung . . . " (Pictures are hung; people are hanged.) Second: In "Let a Woman in Your Life," he sings, "I'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling than to ever let a woman in my life." ("Equally as" is redundant, "to ever let" is a split infinitive and "than" should be "as." ) Shudder.
