English term or phrase: Ouzees
Dialogue between two policemen. British English.

FORD: So you’re connecting this killing to Neil Byrne?
WALLACE: I got the impression so was the pathologist.
FORD: Well, Henry’s full of theories. He’s an alky. Didn’t you smell the Jack Daniels? Listen, right night, I have a major crime wave. Drugs, extortion, prostitution. Victims include tarts, pharmacists, two chartered accountants, and a city surveyor. OUZEES, hatchets, even a knobcurrie... Do you know what a knobcurrie is?
WALLACE: Of course.
FORD: So we have more important things to worry about than incest and sheep dipping. And Neil Byrne did no kill the all.
