I have always thought, though, that Sondheim had a little fun getting back at himself in Anyone Can Whistle.

In "Come Play Wiz Me," Fay's not-very-good impression of a French woman slips up at one point and sings:

I like your, how you say, imperturbable perspicacity.
It isn't how you say, it's what you see.

In the 2nd refrain, Hapgood counters with:

I like your, how you say, unmistakable authenticity.
It isn't how you say, it's what I see.
