First and second times, there are definitely two syllables, hay-er. The
third time he says it quickly and there is only one syllable, hare. But
the pronunciation I was thinking of is a quite drawn-out hare, a definite
single syllable, not a quick and slightly slurred word. Of course this
depends to some extent on how the reader of this would pronounce "hare"
... I think there are southern American versions that would make two
distinct syllables of that. Which is not what I mean.
