Are you bent?
The translation goes "Are you crazy?" So does "bent" mean "nuts" or something? The girls are talking about bringing another girl back to the team, which Rana thinks is nonsense.
Tais- I think we need to let Maddy back on the team.
Rana - Are you bent? Why? - We need her, for one thing.
Tais - Look at the moves she gave us. - She is a loser, Tais. She lied to us!
Re: Are you bent?
Wow, I had actually forgotten this meaning of "bent" until you posted this. I haven't heard it for ages but yes, in this context, it means "crazy".
