KERRY O'BRIEN, PRESENTER: Time now for John Clarke and Bryan Dawe playing their own waiting game.




BRYAN DAWE: How are you going?

JOHN CLARKE: Good thank you. Good.

BRYAN DAWE: Oh that's good. How are things?

JOHN CLARKE: Not bad. Not bad. How are your things?

BRYAN DAWE: Good, yeah. A bit cold.

JOHN CLARKE: Bloody freezing, isn't it?


JOHN CLARKE: You got any questions?


JOHN CLARKE: Have you got any questions?

BRYAN DAWE: Questions?



JOHN CLARKE: Yeah, got any questions?

BRYAN DAWE: What questions?

JOHN CLARKE: I don't know.

BRYAN DAWE: Questions for who?

JOHN CLARKE: For who? I don't know. Who do you want to talk to? I've got no idea.

BRYAN DAWE: Well, I don't know. Um... have they got a result yet?

JOHN CLARKE: I don't know.

(Calling off-screen) Have we got a result yet?

BRYAN DAWE (Calling off-screen): Any word from the governor?

JOHN CLARKE (Calling off-screen): Anything at all?

I don't think so.

BRYAN DAWE: Not really.

JOHN CLARKE: Good. Got one...

BRYAN DAWE: Have they got a result in Hasluck yet, by the way?

JOHN CLARKE: Hasluck. I wouldn't think so. I think they're doing a recount, aren't they?

BRYAN DAWE: Oh yeah because the preferentials will be important, won't they?

JOHN CLARKE: Their eleventh recount.

BRYAN DAWE: Yeah... It's going well, isn't it?

JOHN CLARKE: Oh, it's a well oiled machine, this country, yeah, yeah, yeah.

BRYAN DAWE: We haven't had a government for five weeks.

JOHN CLARKE: No we've got a government. We don't have a Parliament but we've got a government.

BRYAN DAWE: How do you know?

JOHN CLARKE: How do I know? I rang them today.

BRYAN DAWE: You rang the Government?

JOHN CLARKE: I rang the Government, yeah.

BRYAN DAWE: What for?

JOHN CLARKE: I had a question about my BAS.

BRYAN DAWE: What did you ask them?


BRYAN DAWE: Fair enough. What are you doing by the way?

JOHN CLARKE: Crossword.

BRYAN DAWE: Crossword?

JOHN CLARKE: Yeah. You can help. Form of Government, nine letters.

BRYAN DAWE: Form of government... Democracy?

JOHN CLARKE: No it's a form of government.

BRYAN DAWE: Oh, Corangamite?

JOHN CLARKE: Corangamite? No, too long, too long.

BRYAN DAWE: You're telling me.

JOHN CLARKE: Here you go, leader, seven letters.

BRYAN DAWE: Seven letters, seven letters... Windsor.

JOHN CLARKE: Windsor. Oh, good on ya. That would mean this other one across here begins S-H.

BRYAN DAWE: What is it?

JOHN CLARKE: S-H - person who meddles and interferes.

BRYAN DAWE: Sh... Shambles?

JOHN CLARKE: Shambles... no, no, that's... Although that- No, I think I've got that one. Yes, yes.

BRYAN DAWE: What was it?

JOHN CLARKE: Alton... Pardon?

BRYAN DAWE: What was it?

JOHN CLARKE: Shambles will be the answer to the next one.

BRYAN DAWE: Oh, okay.

JOHN CLARKE: Result of person who meddles and interferes.

BRYAN DAWE: Oh, does it begin with F?

JOHN CLARKE (yells off screen): Hey? The cleaners? No, tell 'em to come in.

We'll be here for a bit, I think. We'll lift our feet.

Any word from Beckett?

Samuel Beckett?

BRYAN DAWE: Tell him we're waiting.

JOHN CLARKE: I think they probably worked that out.

BRYAN DAWE: How long do you think we'll have to wait?

JOHN CLARKE: A bit more.

KERRY O'BRIEN: Might have to switch our mind to sport.
