Topic: can’t distinguish words
Posted: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 6:55:00 PM
Hello!!

I have a stupid request I guess.
I was watching this video https://youtu.be/3_kOudWmkxE and I couldn’t distinguish what that woman was saying from 3:09 till 3:13.
It’s driving me crazy!))

I’d really appreciate if you could help me out.
BTW, this video is hilarious))


Thank you in advance!

Thank you, Sarrriesfan, for your answer, though there was no butt)

Hello everyone!

There’s a line in “FRIENDS” (s01e06) when Joey is at his agent's office and he accidentally spills her drink (on the table):

Agent: Did you ever see the movie Sleepless in Seattle?
Joey: Wow! Do you represent those actors?
Agent: No. But you know the end, where they're happy? That's gonna be you and me.
Joey: You mean you wanna sign me?
Agent: No, I wanna go to the top of the Empire State Building and make out. Of course, I wanna sign you!
Joey: Miss Leonard, I'm so ... (drops the glass)
Agent: Oh, boy. Ride them, cowboy.
Joey: I' m sorry!


I know it’s used at a rodeo to encourage the rider but still don’t see any connection to this situation...

What does she mean?

Thank you in advance.

Drag0nspeaker, thank you!

I'm in love with this song!) I think I've had it on repeat for a week now)))

Speaking about this part of the song you mentioned,

I've failed to find any other meaning of "scrambled" except "scrambled eggs"... is it just a comparison?


and also... "hit the street", is it the same as "hit the streets" (to go out in search of something or for a specific purpose)?


Thank you very much again!

Dan Lewis 2222, tautophile, thank you!!


Dan Lewis 2222, we are so much alike!)


The rest of the song is meaningful so that's why I thought it might mean something else that I am not aware of ..)

Hello!))


I was listening to the song "Couldn't be better" by Kelly Clarkson:

And there's a scrambled sun in the tangled sky
And the moon couldn't be any brighter
And as the slam big city goes rocketing by
Well, your head couldn't feel any lighter

And I wonder what the line in bold means)



Thank you in advance!
