    While they are dancing they say:
    - Work out! clean! (clean is the name of the person who is dancing)
    - Get down Bubba!
    - Yeah!
    - I see you is right on target.

    I have no idea what this means.

    As several people have told you in other threads, we need real context. It's even possible, in a film, that reference might be being made to something that has happened previously.

    Actually, even native speakers frequently don't pick up every single word or phrase in a film. We often let the action carry us on and don't even notice that we have missed a word or two. The annoying thing for me about watching films on DVD or video is that I can now pause and playback to catch things I notice I've missed. It's usually not worth it.
