Ask a Policeman (1939)
Constable Jeremiah 'Jerry' Harbottle: [as Harbottle senior] When the tide runs low in the smugglers' cove, / And the 'eadless 'orseman rides above, / He drives along with his wild hallo, / And that's the time when the smugglers go in their little boats to the schooner and bring back the kegs of brandy and rum and put them all in the Devil's Cove below.
Constable Jeremiah 'Jerry' Harbottle: [Dudfoot has been embezzling the salary of a non-existent constable] If I hadn't come in you wouldn't have had any Harbottle to show.
Constable Albert Brown: That's right, and you wouldn't be able to stick for half his wages.
Sergeant Samuel Dudfoot: That's commission!
Sergeant Samuel Dudfoot: [Dudfoot and his two constables have made an arrest] Did you search him?
Constable Albert Brown: One pocket book, one watch, one pen-knife and no money.
Sergeant Samuel Dudfoot: One pen-knife and no what?
Constable Albert Brown: No money.
Sergeant Samuel Dudfoot: Come on, turn out your pockets.
Constable Albert Brown: Oh, alright. One pen-knife and fifteen bob.
Sergeant Samuel Dudfoot: Blimey! Will you never learn to be honest? He's as much our prisoner as he is yours... Here you are, five bob each.
