1)So Teddy was just a citizen?

2)I don't think I made myself clear. The motel where Lenny lives called Jimmy that Lenny has checked in.
So Teddy says to Lenny.
"He dealt out of there."


Sorry for the inconvenience.

Lenny- Do you want to buy one (the car).
Gun man-What, I haven't made a strong evidence (I think this is "enough)" impression on you.
Lenny- I wouldn't be too hard on yourself.

What does it mean?
When he says he didn't make a strong enough impression, it sounds as if he has failed to do what he wanted to accomplish. Failure quite often causes a person to feel guilty, or be in a position to be punished. Lenny says he shouldn't be too hard on himself. In other words, don't feel like you failed, or are guilty.

2)a) I found out all kinds of shit. Okay. It means many different types of things.
b) I found out all kind of shit. This is often said and usually has the same meaning. However, to be strict about it, it means all kinds of things about one type of subject.
c) All kind of tree are.. c) and d) are similar. Many different kinds of different types, and many different things about one type. Both are often said, and sound very normal to most people.
d) All kinds of trees are..
e) All kind of trees are.
.
Which are the correct ones and why?


3)Natalie is steaming off on Lenny.
Maybe your cunt of a fucking wife sucked one too many cocks and turned you into a retard.
One too many???
Are you familiar with the adage "the straw that broke the camel's back"?
The idea is a camel can carry a large load of straw, but if you add too much, it will break the camel's back, and too much might be just one piece of straw.

This has the same meaning. A certain amount didn't cause a problem, but one more was "one too many" and that did cause a problem.




Doesn't it seem a bit off without any article as in " of subject"?

All the excerpts are from the movie "Memento".
Lenny is so confused he doesn't know what he's gonna do next.

"What if I'd done something like Sammy?"
Why not I've as it is relevant to the present or perhaps the future.


Teddy (a snitch) is talking about how he got involved with a police officer.
The local boys put us together.
Does it mean something.


Teddy is clarifying how Jimmy knew where Lenny lives.
"He dealt out of there. "
Out of?
What does it mean?

What does "romantic" mean here?

So, "hang onto this" doesn't mean he will kill again but something else?
Topic: To /for one's life

Teddy is telling Lenny why he didn't stop him killing people.
"A dead wife to pine for, a sense of purpose to your life.
Why "to" and not "purpose for your life"?

These excerpts are taken from the movie "Memento".


Lenny is talking on the phone.
"I've got all sorts of other considerations
Legal responsibly, financial .. "
What does "consideration" mean here?


"A romantic quest that you wouldn't end even if I wasn't in the picture."
Romantic quest?


"I might hang on to this for a while."
Can we use 'hang on to'to mean "continue an activity" and would "hang onto work here?

Topic: On top of/ a part
Posted: Saturday, April 17, 2021 8:22:05 PM
1)if it were "I rented you another room on top.
Would "the" make any difference?

3)Why most people say "it's part of the plan? They don't use any article, do they?

4)Is "backwards" here only an adjective or adverb.
And how can it be an adverb it doesn't modify any other verb?
