For the benefit of UK viewers, we have translated this typical Neighbours scene from Australian to British English
Tyle is sitting at a table looking dejected. Aaron sits down with him.
AARON: Bludging, mate? (Resting oneself are we?) Come on, barbie this arvo! (You're invited to dinner later this afternoon)...Bring your cossies (Bring your swimming costume), we'll throw down some sangers and while we listen to some teenie bangers! (We shall eat sandwiches and listen to the most wonderful music)
TYLER: Rack off, would ya? (Watch yourself, sir)
AARON: You right you stunned mullet? (Are you an imbicile?)
TYLER: It's Sally. She's, uh...she's...
AARON: Oh, you weren't ??? were you? (You didn't dare to exceed the speed limit did you?)
TYLER: I was going flat- chat when I tried to chuck a U- ey (I was at maximum velocity when I attempted a U-turn)...and had a bingle (and had a car accident)
Aaron puts his hands over his face and sighs.
AARON: Holy dooley! (surprise)
TYLER: That beautiful little battler (The beautiful little hard worker) She's kicked the bucket (She's passed away)
AARON: She's fair dinkum rooted? (Seriously? She's in such a bad way?) Strewth, sorry bro. (Damn it! Condolences, brother)
TYLER: I'm just a whinging sook. (I can be rather emotional)
AARON: Buckley's chance she's not just chucking a sickie, right? (There isn't a possibility that she's faking her ill health?)
TYLER: Buckley's. (Regretfully not) Devo. (I'm devastated)
AARON: Bloody oath. (I say!) She always went like a brumby. (She rather resembled a wild horse) Come on, we'll go down to the milk bar and suss it out, yeah? (Let's go to the corner shop and evaluate things)
TYLER:(pleased) Onya! (Good on you!)
AARON: Hey mate, you did have a gander at her batteries didn't you? (You did inspect her batteries didn't you?)
The camera has panned out and it seems that "Sally" is actually a robot- controlled car. Tyler fiddles with the batteries and the car suddenly bursts into life! They both laugh, joyously!
AARON: You gallah! (You nincompoop)
TYLER: Sally, you little ripper! (Sally, you're incredibly impressive)
AARON: Bonza! (Yes, first rate!)
