I'm reviewing an installation kit written by one of our writers. I
called him over to re-read the step he wrote, and we got a chuckle out

5. Remove and retain the four nuts securing the media panel
to the old media cover and set them parts aside.

I was tempted to rewrite it as, "Y'all remove and retain them parts."
