Eli:   Well go off and check ‘em Luke, make sure they’re all there… Off you go, that’s a good lad. Of course, you know what’ll happen. He’ll get to fifteen and fall asleep again. Same thing, every night, he never learns does he?

Jake:   Poor lad. Shepherding’s not a bad life – but I’m not sure he’s cut out for it… 
Luke:  Lads, lads, have you seen what’s going on up there? 
Eli:   Not them vultures again is it?
Jake:   If it is they got very big harps and they’ve learnt to sing. 
Eli:   Sing? 
Luke:  Aye. Come with me I’ve got a shock for you. Look! 
Eli:   My goodness! Them’s not vultures - them’s...
