On the same theme : Austin refers to travelling in "an elevator". Not if he is British, he doesn't; we call them "lifts". He also refers to his car as a "Shaguar", a pun on the name of the car manufacturer Jaguar. The trouble is, he pronounces it 'Shag-WARR', based on the American pronunciation 'Jag-Warr'. If he was British he would pronounce it "Shag-U-Arr", because we say 'Jag-U-Arr'. Three syllables, not two.

Yes, and that's the point! Austin is British! Not American! Why would they use the American spelling?

Chi-Chi, the word defense with an s is printed on the MOD (ministry of defence, for anyone who doesnt know) building, which is /not/ believe it or not in America, its in London, and so /should/ have an English spelling instead of American.

Austin is not saying the word defense so it really makes no difference whether or not you use the British spelling or the American spelling.
