Episode Summary

EDIT
It Isn't Cricket
AIRED:
The town grows suspicious when a man called Nigel arrives and starts spending 100 dollar bills. Things look even more dubious when Nancy discovers he has a gun. There is a cricket match set up between Coopers Crossing and Windoona, and Baxter manages to offend everyone in his home town when he betrays them to play for the opposition. During the match Nigel gets injured when a ball hits him in the eye. Unfortunately, when Chris does an eye examination it unearths more problems: he has a melanoma. Nigel will die without an operation on his eye, but he will be rendered blind with it. He would rather die than go blind and so he refuses the operation. Eventually it's Kate who manages to talk sense into him.moreless

      • Vic: You little beauty, Sam. (Laughs) Coopers Crossing against the world!
        Sam: Well, Windoona anyway.
        George: We've no chance of winning, you know.
        Sam: Does it matter who wins?
        George: Fine outlook on life.

      • Violet: A hundred dollars?!
        George: Don't see too many of them, do you Vic? You sure you know what it is?

      • Cracker Jackman: Everyone and his brown dog wants a game. But what's this about Sam Patterson playin' for you blokes? He's a Windoona man, born and bred! You're a bunch of flamin' cattle duffers!

      • Chris: I'm playing, Geoff can umpire.
        Geoff: I play too, ya know.
        Chris: Yeah, well I got in first.
        Geoff: But that means we'll all have to play left-handed.
        Chris: Why?
        Geoff: To give you girls even half a chance.

      • Sam: Emma, you'll have Cracker Jackman bowling at ya. He's an ex Sheffield Shield man. He's fast and dangerous.
        Emma: Good, I like my men fast and dangerous.

      • Emma: So, you gonna wish me luck, Doc?

        Cracker: What is this, bush week?
        DJ: (commentating) Disappointing! There seems to be a bit of tension on the field, ladies and gentlemen. The RFDS flyboy better smarten up or Cracker Jackman will clip his wings for good.

        Simon O'Donnell: In her hat, is that legal?
        Vic: Out 'ere it is, mate. It's what we call a hat trick.

        DJ: I don't know Kate, there was this guy I knew once,...he only had three hours sleep per night all his life...
        Kate: Oh, put a sock in it DJ!
