Fill in the blanks of each sentence below with words that are anagrams of each other. In each pair of sentences, solve the first sentence, change one letter of an answer-word from that sentence, and shuffle it to form the answer-words for the second sentence. The answer-words in all sentences are the same length. Other than that, there is no correlation between answer-words from one sentence-pair to the next. All resulting sentences must make sense, and must use answer-words that are legal in Scrabble.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I didn't want to just copy from the other answer to finalise it. $\endgroup$ May 20 '20 at 22:19
  • $\begingroup$ @FlanMan oh this 100% should get the checkmark, I only got 1/3 of the answers, WeatherVane got over 2/3! Well done WeatherVane! :) (p.s. @ flanman this is my favourite one of these yet, just because of all the perfectly hidden anagrams :P) $\endgroup$ May 20 '20 at 22:26

Solution to 3:

We PHASED out the shark-SHAPED tiles, since nobody wants them near their pool or bathtub.

Changing H to R

At the end of his three-hour presentation on anagrams, his voice was shot, but Reggie Geiger threw open the DRAPES, SPREAD his arms, and RASPED, "I know a guy who monetizes timezones in the ungodliest longitudes!"

This also means

The answers are of length $6$

I really like all the hidden anagrams so some bonus hidden ones:

Torres Resort
Deadlier, Redialed
Reggie Geiger
Monetizes timezones
Ungodliest longitudes

are all anagram pairs!
