What did that guy say? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmXWHW-I32E Around 1:40, what did that guy correct for his buddy's saying? torturous hours? What's wrong with the "torturous"? I can't listen out clearly, please help me.

At 1:33, one of the men says "three tortuous hours". At 1:40, his friend corrects him, telling him that the correct word is "torturous". "Tortuous" means crooked; turning; winding. Torturous means "related to torture". Of course, the entire video is comedic, showing how some people are fanatical about correcting other peoples' grammar.
