    Default Re: meaning

    1-you cut me deep
    => You hurt me emotionally.
    2-what's the catch ?
    => a trick, intended to deceive; hidden difficulty or disadvantage; e.g., "This car is only $100, but the catch is, it doesn't come with an engine.
    3-I find myself dragging my feet this morning
    => to be tired
    4-you are smoke
    => I don't know
    5-He is on the line
    => He's on the phone; He speaks frankly; He's in jeopardy of losing something/someone
    6-If she was with him, they probably got along with her.
    => It's indicative: 'was' refers to a conditional event in the past. There are two ways of reading it:

    [1] If she wasn't there, the male and other female may not have got along, but since she was there, they did, in fact, get along.

    [2] If he wasn't there, the two females may not have got along, but since he was there, they did, in fact, get along.
