    hold it over?

    The lovers seem to be talking about their meeting anniversary. And she says hold it over. Does it mean "You always did it for me"? Or what is it?

    (Small Ville)
    Girl - Our anniversary?
    man- Our anniversary?
    girl- Oh, don't play dumb. You always hold it over me.
    The day you told me. The day you finally trusted me.

    In this context "you always hold it over me" means to "repeatedly use a particular incident from our past to make some sort of point to me or get an advantage over me".
