    Sometimes people say the opposite of what they really mean.

    Some women think nice guys are boring.

    wow, after browsing your answer, I couldn't believe that I didn't understand it before.

    That's quite a hint...

    thanks sooooo much Ron

    Well, kick this up!

    Dear teachers, in the line below, why is it "headed"?
    I thought it should be "to be heading".

    Rachel: Well, I was kinda supposed to be headed for Aruba on my honeymoon, so nothing!

    thanks

    . Another one. Boy I feel tired staying up to footnote all these script thing...But, gotta finish the this part...
    thanks for help!

    What is Chandler trying to say with the red line? I didn't find the word "mento" in my dictionry.



    Chandler: Look, Ross, you gotta understand, between us we haven't had a relationship that has lasted longer than a Mento. You, however have had the love of a woman for four years. Four years of closeness and sharing at the end of which she ripped your heart out, and that is why we don't do it! I don't think that was my point!

    Background: Ross just gets dupmed by his lesbian wife and feels very upset. Joey tells him to "grab a spoon" and enjoy every flavor of ice cream, which I think he means "to date with all kinds of girl".

    Then, after a while, Ross says this:

    Ross: (scornful) Grab a spoon. Do you know how long it's been since I've grabbed a spoon? Do the words 'Billy, don't be a hero' mean anything to you?

    What's the "billy, don't be a hero" stuff all about? I understand that it's part from a lyric, where a girl begs her fiancee to take good care of himself and come back safe from the battle...

    thanks :D :D

    I don't know Mento, but it could be something like a sweet or suchlike that only lasts a minute or two.


    Here are the fulllyrics of the song:
