Is the "h" sound at the start cut off, or is it just me?
I second that. The voice talent starts too fast that it seems he skips the "h" sound.
Sounds OK to me a couple of years later...
"A pair" and "a couple" are the same thing and both are correct.
Why can't this be "They seem to be a pair?"
"They appear to be a couple"--marked wrong.
