Using what about and how about
What's the difference between these 2:
1. What about the rest of us (from the movie speed)
2. How about a hug.
Re: Using what about and how about
1. "what should we do with the rest of us", "what's going to happen to the rest of us" etc..

2. "What do you think (what are your thoughts) about giving each other a hug" or just "Let's hug", "let's have a hug". In a way you want to make sure the other person feels OK with that.
