"Bugalugs" is an affectionate phrase used by Inspector Thomas Brackenreid. It has its origins in Australian slang and is used in the same manner as "mate".

According to Thomas Craig, whose father used the British slang often, it means "to be cheeky".  Craig has always wanted to use it and so starting calling Crabtree  "Bugalugs".

Usually, it is proceeded by an "Oi" which comes from the British isles, and is generally used there to get someone's attention.
