    oyster

    In the movie "Live," The announcer was asking people who do they root for:

    A: Pablo, he is so cute.
    B: I would have to say oyster, she I like.

    Now what's the meaning of "oyster" here. Note that in the script, it was not capitalized and no competitor has the name "oyster."

    Waiting for your reply
    Thanks.

    I haven't seen the movie, but I note from imdb.com that there is a female character named "Abalone". It wouldn't be inconceivable to refer to such a person as "oyster".

    Re: oyster

    Yes! you are totally right. It never came to my mind to search about the names of the characters Yes, I found "abalone" is a sea creature in Wikipedia.

    Thanks a lot really. :)
