Tom: No, Dick, eh (cough) I’m not, I’m sorry, sorry, I don’t understand that sort of thing-
Dick: Hah? You takin’ the piss? Ah of course, you’ve never been unemployed. Always cleanin’ up for the council. Well I hope you’re happy Tom Kendall, Dick Pheasant is on his knees, a doley once again!
Tom: No, no, no… I- I wish you nothing but the best of luck, and I-I mean that.
Dick: Ah go on with yourself.
Tom: Look, the anger’ll pass… I know. I read Rock Hudson’s book, he said-
Dick: G’luck Tom, don’t know what yer sayin’ as usual.
Dick: This fuckin’ place. Spiteful, secrets! Mount Eidel with its crispy, clean Chemical Factory… With their big salaries and their Hyundais. I tell ya, this town just pulls at the rage in ya. Ah, fuck it, just get some cans, head up home, have a couple of drags on me emaciated penis…

Dick: Eh, thanks Lisa, but, what, me favourite book?
Lisa: That one you showed me that time. ‘Morris’ was it? By some ‘Forster’ lad.
Dick: I’ve no idea what you’re on about Lisa.
Lisa: Aw no hun, it takes the memory away too does it?
Lisa: Ponkin said just because it’s not the 80s... Ah stop, I wasn’t even born in the 80s, what do I know? But I do know that I’m with you every step of the way, we all are, we’re all behind you Dick Pheasant. Here, here’s a six pack of Tuborg, on the house.
Dick: Bidda F- eh thanks Lisa! I never knew you liked the metal as well-
Lisa: I’d flash ya a tit an’ all but I guess it wouldn’t work on you now.
Dick: Ah stop it Lisa, I’m only sick.
Lisa: Breaks my heart. It really does. Oh look, there’s Linda in her Pajero.
Dick: Oh no. She’ll be all over m- eh, howaya Linda! How’s-

Cottle: Dick! Dick! Have ya a moment?
Dick: Eh, Jaysus Cottle, thought you were Ponkin with the scooter there. Did you borrow it? Don’t let him forget it was you.
Cottle: No, it’s Eidel Radio’s, so we can get the word on air even quicker. Do you have a minute?
Dick: I’ve many minutes now sure. A man of long days of leisure.
Cottle: Dick, I need a human interest story, somethin’ from the heart yunno, that the listeners will identify with, someone who can show the real side of things…
