      My understanding is it was a lecture done "on his feet," not something read from a script, or something where you could go back and do it again. 

      I'll be honest though, if something isn't a life and death thing, I tend not to worry about it too much. ;)

      It's a big deal when it's speaking before the microphones for a prepared recording. When a movie actor flubs a line, they do it again.
