I've been struggling with the listening comprehension of a very short TV commercial. Could you please listen to the approximately ten-second conversation from the link indicated below and tell me what MAN 2 is saying in the statement in bold font? I've written down what I think I heard.

MAN 1: If you had only one choice, what would it be?
MAN 2: Will you actually get it?
MAN 1: Only one.
MAN 2: That's a difficult question.

(Man2 pondering)

Man 2: Dokodemo door (a Japanese word).

(Then follows an announcement in Japanese.)

  • That's what I thought Man2 said – Peter Jan 5 '16 at 4:17

You've got it spot on. That's exactly what he's saying.

The man's accent is from the North of England (toned down somewhat) - at a push I'd go with Liverpool or the Wirral.

  • Gee, thank you very much for your kind comment, Easy Tiger. Your confirmation has really relieved me. – OED Loves Me Not Jan 5 '16 at 21:33
