Jones: Morning, Squadron Leader.
Idle: What-ho, Squiffy.
Jones: How was it?
Idle: Top-hole. Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.
Jones: Er, I'm afraid I don't quite follow you, Squadron Leader.
Idle: It's perfectly ordinary banter, Squiffy. Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.
Jones: No, I'm just not understanding banter at all well today. Give us it slower.
Idle: Banter's not the same if you say it slower, Squiffy.
Jones: Hold on then... Wingco! Bend an ear to the Squadron Leader's banter for a sec, would you?
Chapman: Can do.
Jones: Jolly good. Fire away.
Idle: Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.
Chapman: No, I don't understand that banter at all.
Idle: Something up with my banter, chaps?
GRAMS: AIR RAID SIRENS
(Enter Palin, out of breath)

Palin: Bunch of monkeys on the ceiling, sir! Grab your egg-and-fours and let's get the bacon delivered!
Chapman (to Idle): Do *you* understand that?
Idle: No, I didn't get a word of it.
Chapman: Sorry, old man, we don't understand your banter.
Palin: You know, bally tenpenny ones dropping in the custard!
(no reaction)
Palin: Um... Charlie choppers chucking a handful!
Chapman: No no, sorry.
Jones: Say it slower, old chap.
Palin: Slower *banter*, sir?
Chapman: Ra-ther.
Palin: Um... sausage squad up the blue end?
Idle: No, still don't get it.
Palin: Um... cabbage crates coming over the briny?
The others: No, no.
(Film of air-raid)
Idle (voice-over): But by then it was too late. The first cabbage crates hit London on July the 7th. That was just the beginning.
(Chapman seen sitting at desk, on telephone)

Chapman: Five shillings a dozen? That's ordinary cabbages, is it? And what about the bombs? Good Lord, they _are_ expensive.

Yep. When they switch from the BBC announcer to the other people, I almost expect subtitles to pop up.

If the various regional underclasses of England had put as much work into improving themselves as they did their rhyming slang, argot, and other impenetrable communication fetishes, they could have overthrown the monarchy and the OxCam oligarchs a century ago.

The old days before containers. When ten percent of anything you shipped would be "lost" at the ports.  No wonder the unions were so opposed to containers. It wasn't just the jobs lost they were unhappy about. It was the fact they couldn't help themselves to stuff.

Now you have to be sure to tip your stevedore well.  Otherwise, whatever you ship, even Christmas presents to your loved ones, will end up "jettisoned in heavy seas".  Even when you're just shipping it from Dallas to Houston.
