Source: My copy and multi-region Blu-ray player

I can check about dialogue and music situation if told where to look (timings?), but be aware that because this doesn't have any dub languages I can't compare it on those.

I've added it, but as for the audio issue, I think Mark can help so I messaged him.

Justin/James. I have now checked out my UK Blu-ray of the original Sony release:

1) Different music to original Sony S.E DVD release is around 70:07
2) The Missing "Thank You!" translated on the the Italian/Spanish audio tracks but missing on the English track is around 96:18. This is on the TV/Video & both previous UK DVD versions, but curiously missing here. Another demonstration of the sarcasm of McDowell's character.

It was difficult to compare the music with the DVD but, unless I'm mistaken, yes, the music changes for a few seconds.

However Cochrane's "Thank You!" is definitely missing (and isn't on the English-only subtitles) so I believe that would indicate the soundtrack is the same as the previous Blu-ray release, adding credence to my belief that I heard the music change in the earlier scene.
