1. hold on 等一下
(口语中，人们不太用wait a minute)如果两人辩论，吵架，抬杠，你要别人“打住”，可以说，hold it right there.
2. i hate his guts.
也有说i hate him guts. guts 是肠子，相当于“恨之入骨”的意思。
he doesn’t have much guts.
3. nuts, 果仁，核，为复数时，意为“疯子”
he is nuts。
he went nuts and killed a guy.
you are driving me nuts.
a tough nut to crack,
4. how is everything?
i am just stuck in a rut, doing the same things every day. i wish i could do something different.
get in a rut
5. i have totally sold out to your idea.
if you are not careful enough, you will buy into his bad idea.
6. i am just ecstatic about going to visit you soon.
7. a dap and dip
matt: are we going to jon’s party?
darryl: yeah, but i don’t want to stay long, so let’s make it a dap and dip.
8. i would like to get a job within couching distance.
沙发距离，就是坐在沙发上不起身也能够得着。这是那种 couch potato喜欢做的美梦。
9. yukky 难吃，说这个词时还要做一个难吃的表情。
where did you get this food? it was yukky.
11. i cannot take it anymore.
前面还可以加上一句：don’t push me. 不要再逼我呀。
同样意思的句子还有：i cannot stand him any longer.
12. don’t take it out on me!
13. you have my word.
14. look, i have got going.
15. you talk crazy.
相当于you talk nonsense之意。从语法上看，将形容词放在动词后不是很正规，但人家都这么说，也就可以将就了。
16. i don’t mean to cross the line.
“i don’t mean to cross the line, is she your new girl friend ?”
17. thank you for …..(the tea, and so on), and everything else.
当你向人道谢时，你一下只想起了一件具体的事，但又接受了不止一项的好处，就加上一句 and everything else，这样就不会漏谢什么了。
18. i won’t take that crap.
也可以说：i won’t buy that beef.同样的意思。
19. calm down.
you make me sick.
people do sick things to young girls nowadays.
he is sick. 如果你把sick一词念得很重，意思就是“他令人恶心。”如果念得不重，意思就只是“他病了。” 所以要小心。
