Maybe I'm too tired.... but I think this works.
put "The purple dinosaur inadvertently stepped on the cat." & return &
"The white dog howled." into tString
put "The purple dinosaur inadvertantly stepped on the cat." & return &
"The white cat howled." into tString2
put matchText(tString, tReg, tMatch1, tMatch2, tMatch3) into tResult
put matchText(tString2, tReg, tMatch4, tMatch5, tMatch6) into tResult2
answer tResult && tMatch1 && tMatch2 && tMatch3 & return & tResult2 &&
tMatch4 && tMatch5 && tMatch6
