but I not know the sun

until I come here.

Very dangerous, this sun.

I knew a man, Goran.

Remember Goran?

The Sun, it kill him.

And also Sam. Remember Sam-Man?

He work in the sun

for five hours without no hat.


Afterward he spoke

Chinese for two days.

Before the sun, he know

not a word of Chinese!

Yes, it was crazy place when

Red Dog arrive in Dampier.

Men are no better

than wild animals.

They drink much and they...

How do you say? 'Imbulge'.

And their hair, it goes funny.

All day, all night

You know,

I've been working hard

All day, all night

Gather around, y'all

it's about time you learnt

About the new dance craze

that's sweeping the world...

If that thing could flap... might just fly away.

You two... be needing

an ed-u-cation.

A what?



Though not all imbulge.

Some were quiet, educated,

with dark, mysterious past.

Some that

never, ever laugh.

In Abruzzi, no-one would

fight over moustache.

What do they fight over?


Abruzzi has the most

beautiful women in Italy.

Slender, with a wonderful

breast, like a nut.


Yes! Big, beautiful nut!

To come from a place

with such beautiful women

to a place with no women...

I don't think you can

understand such pain.

In Abruzzi,

the sky is very blue,


like, uh... the sky of Abruzzi.

If he mentions that

stupid town one more time

I'll stick him like a pig.

I will help.

For national unity.

In Abruzzi, the sea...


Oi! Oi!

Barry Wright

to main office, please.

Barry Wright.

We took a vote,

and the shop steward agrees.

If you don't stop

talking about 'Bruzki'...


...the Ski Patrol have

permission to slit your throat.


Everyone's homesick.

Not you?

Need a home to be

homesick, mate.
