A little help would really be appreciated

What does Holmes say at 3:42?
"Let me play ??? Watson."
The Spanish subtitles say it's "villancico", "Christmas carol".

If he sends me cyanide I just won't take it. Let me play you a carol, Watson.

Thank you very much.
I thought he says the name of the song.

Since the opening bars are repeated as the maid brings in the flaming pudding, I do think it's a Christmas carol--but it's not one I recognize.

LilyBLily is correct, the word is "carol."

More interestingly, does anyone want to join me to travel in devious channels?    :doh:

What does Watson say at 22:22?
The Spanish subtitles give only the first part of the line, "Yes, it wasn't bad."

Thank you very much. Sometimes Holmes and Watson talk too fast for me.

Hey, Dennis!   :mhk9U91:

Sometimes Holmes and Watson talk too fast for me.


Thick accents can be tricky sometimes, too, for those of us who speak markedly different versions of the language.  There have been numerous times when I've had to turn on subtitles for a video even though they're speaking English.   :confused:
