Jock Crawford:
You, uh... you say you're a slave. What do you mean by that?
John Grant:
You wouldn't know how our educational authorities get teachers for the outback?
Jock Crawford:
Wouldn't have a clue, mate.
John Grant:
Now, a new teacher has to post a bond for a thousand dollars. That thousand guarantees you'll serve out your contract wherever they send you.
Jock Crawford:
Oh, well. I suppose they know what they're doing. You clever blokes never like to stop in the one spot long, do you?
John Grant:
Depends on the place.
Jock Crawford:
Heh, heh! Yeah, that's right. Well, never mind, Jack. You can always come to The Yabba for your 'olidays. Good luck!

John Grant:
Yes, that's something to look forward to.

Transcript:
You, uh...
You say you're a slave.
What do you mean by that?
You wouldn't know how our
educational authorities
get teachers for the outback?
Wouldn't have a clue, mate.
Now, a new teacher has
to post a bond for $1,000.
That 1,000 guarantees you'll
serve out your contract
wherever they send you.
Oh, well. I suppose they
know what they're doing.
You clever blokes never like to
stop in the one spot long, do you?
Depends on the place.
Yeah, that's right.
Well, never mind, Jack.
You can always come to the
yabba for your holidays.
Good luck.
Yes, that's something
to look forward to.
No, thanks,
I'll be running along.
Police have much to
do in Bundanyabba?
No. 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 are 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.
Sounds like an easy life.
Yeah, not bad.
Of course,
we do have a few suicides.
