| jes | bəʔ ˈwɒt ˈðeɪv ˈɡɒʔ tə rɪˈmembə ɪz |

109
00:03:51 - - > 00:03:52
if they go up to someone

110
00:03:52 - - > 00:03:54
and go, "You smell",
| ənd ɡəʊ | ju smel |

111
00:03:54 - - > 00:03:56
it's not always positive!
| ɪts nɒt ˈɔːlweɪz ˈpɒzətɪv |

112
00:03:56 - - > 00:03:57
Right.

00:03:58 - - > 00:03:59
"You smell nice."
