      • Shaun: Smoking ... it has been claimed that up to 20,000 people worldwide die from smoking related illness. But our research has shown, conclusively, that this figure would be halved if you divided it by two.

      • Shuan: Our next guest is - and I know it's an overused expression but it seems so appropriate - here tonight.

      • Rollie: G'day. My name's Rollie and I am an alcoholic. I drink about a bottle and a half of scotch a day ... I go on binges. I drink for two days, two nights ... I wake up, don't know who the hell I am or where I am ... I get violent, I don't know what I'm doing most of the time ... All I can really think about is, is my next drink ... My wife and kids have gone. I've lost my license and my job and I think it's time I did something about it. And with your help, and God's, I think I can. Thankyou.
        Woman with clipboard: That was very brave Mr Williams, but the question was, can you lend us your trailer for the school fete?

      • Shaun: (in studio) So lets cross to me live now. Am I there Shaun?
        (cut to shot of a Shaun on a suburban street)
        Shaun: Yes, you certainly are.

      • Shaun: Now, here on the program, we are rather like bower birds, forever taking bits from hither and thither and yon, searching for the perfect mix of game show, life style show, talent quest and trauma counselling session. We call it fine tuning, others less kindly call it plagiarism.

      • Preg: Our factory warehouse at Klemzig is having a huge fire sale. Everything must go.
        Shaun: And that's on Thursday, isn't it?
        Preg: (pausing to think) Well I'm torching the place and myself Wednesday, so yep, yep Thursday it is

      • Shaun: Now at Busby's Show Kingdom you can get top quality shoes at low, low prices and my good friend from Busby' Show Kingdom, Preg William, is here with a great offer. Preg.
        Preg: Yeah, that's right Shaun. We're offering all the exclusive brand names at less than whole sale prices. That's right, we're selling them for less than it cost to buy them off the manufacturers.
        Shaun: Well Preg how can you afford to do that?
        Preg: We can't ... it'll bankrupt us.
