Default Help, please!

Hi!
I have a huge problem. I'm creating the dragons head that Kurt made a tutorial about. But, I'm not using the tutorila to help me. I made a mistake and put 2 layers of polygons inside the dragons mouth. When I now wanted to took em of and fix the ugly part of it, I did something bad, whic might be extruding 2 edges. I don't know why, but know when I try to convert from polygons to subdivs, instead of leting me do it, the script editor tells me this:

// Error: polyToSubdiv1 (Poly To Subdiv Node): The conversion to a subdivision surface failed.
// One or more duplicated edges were present.
// Repair the duplicate edges by selecting the polygon
// and issuing the following command, then try again:
select .e[1999] .e[1992] ;string $v[] = `polyListComponentConversion -fe -tv`;select $v;polySplitVertex;polyMergeVertex -d 0.0 -tx 1; //
// Error: Command polyToSubdiv failed. Open Script Editor for details. //

So how do I sellect the 2 edges numbers 1999 and 1992? This is my problem.

By the way heres few pics from my dragon before I massed things up:

Seems to me it's telling you what to do

Select the polygon (the whole thing), copy and paste "select .e[1999] .e[1992] ;string $v[] = `polyListComponentConversion -fe -tv`;select $v;polySplitVertex;polyMergeVertex -d 0.0 -tx 1" into the command line and run it.

You might also try a poly clean up function with the non-manifold setting on.

Good luck and let us know what the fix is.

I got it fixed. But I didn't use your solution. It took some time for the answer so I started again from my last working save,( I save alot) and fixed the problem by checking now and then will it work. But thanks still for spending your time to help me find the solution. Mayby I'll bump up to something like this later, so your repling was needed. Thanks!
