    roll over

    Sebastian- You wanna talk about it?
    Veronica- No, it's not worth talking about.
    S- If it's keeping you up, it is.
    V- Oh, it's just... it's nothing, you know. Michael's case.
    S- You did the best you could.
    V- Yeah, but he didn't. He just sort of rolled over. He didn't put up a fight. It's not like him. I'm sorry. I shouldn't be talking about him.

    (Hi! What does "roll over" mean in this context? Thank you! )

    S- Hey, if it's on your mind, it's on your mind, right? Good night.

    He rolled over = he let himself be beaten = he didn't fight = he gave up.

    Not to be confused with:
    S- "Hey, if it's on your mind, it's on your mind, right? Good night." And with that, he rolled over and went to sleep.

    roll over: from sleeping, say, on the left side of your bed, you roll over in bed so that you are now lying on your right side.

    Not to be confused with:
    "It's a Rollover Lottery this week!"
