    How do I understand the phrase " trip over your mouth " in this context? Can you give me a few examples about how to use this phrase? Thanks a lot for your help!!!

    You should get to know him.

    JOSH
    I have enough friends.

    MANDY
    Not these days you donít.

    JOSH
    Please, Mandy. Itís not like these people were in our camp to begin with.

    MANDY
    Thatís right, Josh, and theyíve been waiting for you to trip over your mouth and you handed it to them. Itís Christmas morning for Mary Marsh. [pause] Youíre a Fulbright Scholar, are you honestly the only adult in America who doesnít think youíre about to be fired? Do what Tobyís telling you to do.

    JOSH
    Did you just call him Lloyd?

    MANDY
    Who?

    JOSH
    Senator Russell.

    MANDY
    When?

    JOSH
    A minute ago. You said "What do you wanna know? Is-is Lloyd gonna run"?
