According to all the scripts on the Internet and Blu-ray subtitles, at 1:10 into the video, Maw says:

You'll only ___ wish you were dead.

But in the video above, I hear something between only and wish.

What is it?


I don't hear a word, but I do hear an artifact of the special audio effect they used on his voice, like a bit of echo.

In no other line of Maw's is such an artifact, echo or not, so why would this particular line have one?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

I haven't seen the movie, so I can't say, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. He is a fictional alien in heavy costume. Maybe that bizarre nose of his only resonates when he says "only". I can only repeat that I don't hear a word there.
