For the benefit of UK viewers, we have translated this typical Neighbours scene from Australian to British English
Kyle walks in.
KYLE: G'day Gran. (Good day, grandmother) Got any of that amber fluid for me? (Do you have a beverage)
SHEILA: For you, I reckon! Just a tick (Certainly. One moment) I don't think you should be drinking on your Pat Malone. (I don't think you should be drinking along)
KYLE: Nah, she'll be apples. (It's fine)
SHEILA: Everything hunky-dory with your missus? (What is the status of your relationship?)
KYLE: I am so sick of everyone always gossiping! Your sheila's this, your sheila's that, it's me and Amy's business!
SHEILA: What are they saying about your sheila? (What aspersions are the general populace casting on your beloved?)
KYLE: Stop trying to sticky-beak! (Mind your own business)
SHEILA: Oh! Just trying to help! (Just attempting to assist!)
Kyle looks harrassed.
KYLE: She was ropeable, eh. (She was extremely upset)
SHEILA: Have a Captain Cook at this (Take a look at this)
She shows Kyle something behind the bar.
KYLE: You are as cunning as a dunny-rat! (You're really rather intelligent) Jimmy!
SHEILA: Mm-hmm. He told me you two were having a blue! (Indeed. He informed me that you had something of a disagreement)
KYLE: That little ankle-biter! (That child!)
SHEILA: Yeah, well, she's a woman...give her these, you'll be right as rain (You shall resolve the problem)
KYLE: Nah, we're cactus! (No, we're not functioning)
SHEILA: Pig's arse! (I don't agree with you) You and Amy are dinky dye! (You and Amy shall happily prosper)
KYLE: We've karked it! (Our relationship has died)
SHEILA: She would be stoked! (She would be extremely pleased)
KYLE: She was spewing! (She was extremely upset)
SHEILA: Stop being a sook and give it a red-hot go! (Please pull yourself together man and give it a chance)
KYLE: You really think she'll come good? (You honestly believe woman that she will accede to my will?)
Sheila picks up the item, which is a nice bunch of flowers.
SHEILA: You're a spunk! (Yes, you're rather attractive)
Kyle takes the flowers.
He leaves the bar.
SHEILA: Idiot. (Idiot)
