Barker:
"Yeah me too, Zep are the men - I even like their helluva tame stuff on Zep 3"
Tender: "Wheyyy.... look at that guy with the hellish beef prime Plant locks over there!"

2.
Slang for (a cup of) Coffee used in the UK. When a guest called round, the host's usual polite offer of "would you like coffee? do you take milk? how many sugars?" gradually got abbreviated during the 70s until all that remained was the last word, usually phrased as a question, "sugars?".
A good host would also offer eddies to accompany the sugars.
Barker: "Sugars?"
Tender: "Wheyyy... sleee. Got any eddies?"
