Dialogue includes: The kangaroo. "I've got a sort of - er - feeling of oppression. My doctor at home gave me that prescription!" Mr.Ch-mb-rl-n (Colonial chemist and druggist according to the British pharmacopœia.) "Abolition of appeal to privy council' - of course, I could make it up for you, but I can give you something that will exactly suit your constitution!"
