John Grant:
Police have much to do in Bundanyabba?
Jock Crawford:
Nah. No, not really. We sort of... we just sort of keep an eye on things. Honestest little town in Australia this is, mate. But mind you, there re not too many game enough to try anything around here. You see, we're so isolated, there's nowhere to go. We get 'em, and quick.
John Grant:
Sounds like an easy life.
Jock Crawford:
Yeah, not bad. 'Course, we do have a few suicides.
John Grant:
Yeah?
Jock Crawford:
Yeah. Yeah, they reckon it's the heat. Me? Ha, ha... I like the heat!
John Grant:
Yeah, it's one way of getting out of town.
Jock Crawford:
What is?
John Grant:
Killing yourself.
Jock Crawford:
'Ay, that's good! I like a bloke with a sense o' humour!
[laughs]

Jock Crawford:
Oh, killing yourself.
