When I was making this puzzle, I actually made far more Double Speak puzzles than I wound up combining into the resulting metapuzzle. I'd rather they not go to waste, so here they are.

As with the previous set, each of these phrases can be reworded into a Double Speak phrase. A Double Speak phrase has two homophones together in the same phrase. For example, to "Purchase a departure" could also be said as to "Buy a Bye".

  • The child of a star.
  • Extremely boring aircraft.
  • A ship part cheaper than usual.
  • Two identical fruits.
  • Earn a number for coming in first.
  • Created a housecleaner.
  • Celebrity who's not doing anything.
  • Look at the ocean.
  • Run from a bug.
  • Musicians who aren't allowed.
  • Acceptable cab price.
  • Use a pen correctly.
  • Glare at the steps.
  • Inheritor of the atmosphere.
  • Formerly flying blade.

There is no clever metapuzzle this time. If you find all 15 Double Speak phrases, you're done.
