To me, it appears at about 3:05.

He says "a bit of a Sloane". See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sloane_Ranger
It refers to a British expression "Sloan Ranger" and means a young, professional, fairly well-to-do woman with fashionable clothes, etc, who is part of the trendy night life in London. Sloan Square is a famous landmark in London and the expression comes from that SLoan.

Sloane means a younger upper-class English person,especially a woman.
I went to Finishing school in London (Pont Street) "The Club of the Three Wise Monkeys" in the 1960's..it was near Slone Square and Slone Strreet..the girls (young and aristoctatic) who where found in that area are refered to a Slones.Princess Diana and her friends where Slones..
Please let me know if you were at the "Monkey Club" between Oct 1964 and June 1965 as I was there to mainly study English and take the Proficiency of Cambridge Exam. My name was then Yvonne Schwencke and I was Dutch. Now married to Richard Timberlake and living in W.Sussex and would love to hear from you if you remember me.I lived in the Annexe, Mitford House in Lennox Gardens.

Hello Yvonnne,

My name is Charlie and I would be very interested in hearing about your time at Mitford House. (Later 11 Lennox Gardens) I am an American that went to school there in the early to mid 1970's when it was an American school. (The building was sold in 1968) I have pieced together a history of the building from UK internet resources, but the history from 1920 to 1968 is very spotty.

Please contact me as I would like to get a summary of your experiences regarding life in the building itself, and more generally how the building was used and what life was like going to the finishing school. I know you were only there short time and when you were young and focused on other things, but do you know how this particular building came to be used. What it might have been used for before you got there ?

My contact e-mail is in the attached image.

Regards,

- Charlie
