(brakes squeaking)

- Ah, last motel in

town again, hey Boswell?

Well it's not

exactly the Ritz, but

it sure beats spending

another night in the truck,

right mate?

Hey listen, get some

nice clean sheets

and a hot shower, and

after that we'll hop

into a restaurant, and

get some nice chow.

A little pate foie

gras, veal scallopini,

dry marsala, and if we're lucky

we might even get a Disco

Dolly for dessert, right mate?

Oh and I won't

forget the doggy bag.

Salacious vermin.

- [Radio] Base four to

gypsy three niner seven.

Base four to gypsy three

niner seven, do you copy?

- Oh God, shall we?

- [Radio] Base four to

gypsy three niner seven.

Do you COPY?

- Mayday, mayday,

this is flight 77,

I seem to be in a

great deal of trouble.

I'm going down, I

need help, over.

- [Radio] Is that you,

gypsy three niner seven?

- Negative, darling,

this is Quid.

Patrick Anthony Quid, as

in British Sterling, over.

- [Radio] Three niner

seven, we have a priority

urgent from Perth.

Melbourne Meatworks, 5AM, over.

- Negative, base four, I

haven't slept since Wednesday.

I'm hallucinating, over.

- [Radio] I thought you

truck drivers took pills

for that sort of thing.

- Darling, just

because I drive a truck

does not make me a

truck driver, over.

- [Radio] Come on three nine

seven, is that affirmative?

There's a strike in the

west, they need meat.

- Sweetheart, there seems to be

a great deal of

interference here,

but I love you, I've

always loved you, over.

- [Radio] Why do we always

have trouble with you,

three nine seven?

All right, we'll go double

time just this once.

- Affirmative, base four.

5AM meat works, double time.

Over and out.

Hey Boswell, isn't

that that young fox

we saw hitchhiking on the

other side of the weighbridge?

I told you we should

have picked her up.

Now that clown's gonna get her.

(sirens wailing)

Hey, don't look at me, pal.

Use Smith or Jones,

what's the difference?

I mean, who cares nowadays?

Let's go.

Come on.

Oh God.

First he steals my girl,

then he takes my bed.

Okay, Bozzy.

It's you and me, pal.

Now listen.

No snoring and no evil smells.

I hope she steals his wallet.

I'll bet she doesn't even

wait to take her socks off.

(gentle acoustic guitar)

(clock ticking)

(guitar strings creaking)

(whining guitar music)

(clock ticking)

(soft guitar music)

(garbage cans crashing)

(man shouting)

(dog whining)

(razor buzzing)

(man shouting)

(sirens wailing)

(dog barking)


(man shouting)

Hey boys-

I haul it in, you

haul it out, right?

(Western music)

With full devote courage of

sundry folk by adventure fall

in fellowship and

pilgrims were they all.

Good morning, pilgrims!


Me thinketh it according to

resound to tell you all...

Hello, been away

on holiday, aye?


(child laughing)

To Warrnambool.

Fred Frugal and

his wife, Frita.

Frita Frugal.

(woman talking)

Bet she's a real dragon.

You should have turned

right at the last left,

and I told you, but

you never listen.

Poor guy-

I bet he's an accountant.

Maybe a school teacher.

Nah, an accountant.

You better watch it kids,

not careful, you'll stay in

that position for life.

Now there's a man with balls.

(dog whimpers)

Benny balls.

(slow Western music)


Ha, Bozzy, there's something

in the autumn air that

sets the gypsy blood a stir.


Sneezy rider.

Hors d'oeuvre?


Hey, Bozzy, there's another one.

Maybe oughta pick this one up

and take her to Perth with me.

Dazzling her with my stylish

rhetoric and witty innuendo.
