    you are in there

    Hi! I understand what "Han" is trying to say.
    However, I don't know what "you're in there" means exactly in this context.
    Please help. Thank you!

    ------------
    The girls are ahead of us, arms entwined, heads together. Han grins and offers me the bottle.
    "No thanks."
    "Go on, man! It'll help you relax."
    He nods towards Mina and his eyebrows quiver.
    "You're in there man, no sweat!"
    I shake my head. "We are just friends."

    To me, the implication is that he could have sex with her. But it might just mean becoming her boyfriend without necessarily being so intimate. I'm not sure of the cultural context here.
    The quivering eyebrows mean, of course: "You understand what I mean, even if I'm not quite saying it".
