This episode features parts of a 1974 Franky's Hotdog Stand Playmobil set we were lucky enough to get for a reasonable price on TradeMe recently. Rearranged a little, and with a wooden bench and flowers from some other set the hotdog stand is magically transformed into a NZ Dairy (a corner-store). The 'Trumpet' ice-cream sign, something I'd assumed was a Kiwi icon, is international it seems.
Dairy (corner shop) exterior.
Sally (off): Steak and cheese pie, thanks Dave.
Dave (off): Three dollars ninety-five, Sal.
Dave (Shopkeep): The cop circus is in town I see.
Sally: They'll go soon enough.
Dave: Rumour is there's a body?
That's what brought the clowns over the hill. But it's old.
Sally: Yeah. From the 1960s they reckon.
Dave: Probably some hippie druggie that O.D.ed.
Sally: Could be.
Sal: How long have you lived here in The Bay, Dave?
Dave; All my life
Dave: Not many left that can say that these days. A lot pulled up and left when the dairy factory closed in '86.
Dave: Even more when the meat works went under.
