The North-East
South-West thing:

Southie is South Boston. The South End is the South End. Eastie is East Boston. The North End is east of the West End. The West End and Scollay Square are no more - a guy named Rappaport got rid of them one night.

Things you should know:
There are two State Houses, two City Halls, two courthouses, two Hancock buildings (one old, one new). Route 128 is also I-95. It is also I-93. It's the Sox, the Pats (or Patsies if they're losing), the Seltz, the Broons. The underground train is not a subway. It's the T, and it doesn't run all night (fah chrysakes, this ain't Noo Yawk).
Getting around:
Pay no attention to the street names. There's no school on School Street, no court on Court Street, no dock on Dock Square, no water on WaterStreet.
Back Bay streets are in alphabetical odda. Arlington, Berkeley,Clarendon, Dartmouth. So are South Boston streets: A, B, C, D.
If the streets are named after trees (Walnut, Chestnut, Cedar), you're on Beacon Hill.
If they're named after poets, you're in Wellesley.
All avenues are properly referenced by their nicknames: Comm Ave, Mass Ave, Dot Ave. Dot is Dorchester, Rozzie is Roslindale, JP is Jamaica Plain. Readville doesn't exist.

How we know you weren't bon heah:
You wear a Harvard sweatshirt.You cross at a crosswalk.You ask directions to "Cheers." You order a grinder and a soda. You follow soccer. You eat at Durgin Park. You pronounce it "Worchester" or "Glouchester". You call it "COPEly" Square.

W i t a n d A d v i c e .continues...
When we say / we mean...
bizah = odd
flahwiz = roses, etc.
hahpahst = 30 minutes after the hour
Hahwahya? = How are you?
khakis = what we staht the cah with
pissah = superb
retahded = silly
shewah = of course
wikkid = extremely
yiz - you, plural
popcahn - popular snack

Things not to do:
Don't call it Beantown.
Don't pahk your cah in Hahvid Yahd. They'll tow it to Meffa (Medford) or Slumaville (Somerville).
Don't swim in the Charles, no matter what Bill Weld tells you.
Don't sleep in the Common.
Don't wear orange in Southie on St. Patrick's Day.
Frappes have ice cream; milk shakes don't. If it's fizzy and flavored, it's tonic. Soda is club soda. Pop is Dad. When we mean tonic WATER, we say tonicWATER.
The smallest beer is a pint.
Scrod is whatever they tell you it is, usually fish. If you paid more than $6 a pound, you got scrod.
It's not a water fountain, it's a bubblah.
It's not a trash can, it's a barrel.
It's not a shopping cart, it's a carriage.
It's not a purse, it's a pockabook.
Brown bread comes in a can. You open both ends, push it out, heat it and eat it with baked beans. They're not franks, they're haht dahgs.
Franks are money in France.
