    You got another one in you

    Hello,

    What is "you got another one in you?" supposed to mean? The context is like this:

    There are two people apart from the speaker. One of them wants the other person to hate him. And the speaker helps him (the one trying to make the other person hate him) with that.

    Here is what comes before and after the question:

    He'll be fine.
    He's right where we want him.


    But I need one more.
    You got another one in you?


    You just let me know
    when you're ready, okay?

    I guess "one" refers the situation where the person who is trying to make the other person hate him hugs the other person with the intend of annoying him.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Re: You got another one in you

    Maybe it means "Can you do it once more?" or "Can you do it again?" Can you give us more of the context?

    Thank you very much, Charlie Bernstein. I think I have nothing to add to the context. But your answer fits the context, indeed.


    have it in you
