    Works for me?

    They are talking about the boy ghosts A saw in the basement, and B says works for me suddenly, but I can't get the meaning in the context. Is B saying "she understands"?

    -Ghost Whisperer
    A One or two that i saw and a dog.
    B A dog? A ghost pet?
    A
    They wanted us out of there.
    B Works for me.

    A No, i'm serious.
    It looks like they've been here for a long time. My grandma used to always say....

    More than that, she's saying that if the ghost dog is intended to get them to leave then it is very effective (it works for her), she will get out of there, presumably in a hurry.

    Thanks a lot, I thought every native speaker is asleep at this hour, but you and I share similar time zone luckily, which made me get the answer so quickly. I appreciate your clear-cut answer.
