The Pink Panther in "Shocking Pink" (listening cloze test)

Pink tries to have a quiet afternoon interrupted by a voiceover (a person you cannot see) persuading him to try various do-it-yourself tasks.

  • If you accomplish something, you succeed in doing or completing something. e.g. The ​students accomplished the ​task in less than ten ​minutes.
  • When you are shiftless, you are lazy and not interested in anything. 
  • Something that is leaky has a ​hole or ​crack in it that ​allows ​liquid or ​gas to get through. e.g. a leaky boat/pipe.
  • A faucet (North American English) is a tap on a bath or sink.
  • An adjustment is a small change that improves something or makes it work better. e.g. She made some slight adjustments to the recipe.
  • When something, such as a pipe, is clogged, it has become blocked, so that nothing can get through. e.g. The sink was clogged by/with dirt and grease.
  • A temblor is a (somewhat formal) North American English word for an earthquake. 
  • A trunk is a large, strong box used for holding clothes or other things especially for traveling.
  • A blunderbuss is an old-fashioned kind of gun with a wide opening at the end.
