    The meaning of "letís-do-this-again"?

    I'm reading a book and wonder why "letís-do-this-again" uses hyphen to link the words.
    Here are the dialogues.


    "So Ö youíll never tell him?í I venture. ĎEver? Heíll never know it was you?"

    ď He will never know. Ē She looks at Suze dispassionately. ď Please stand aside so I can leave. Ē

    Thatís it? No high fives, group hugs, letís-do-this-again?


    Can anyone tell me the meaning of it? Thanks a lot!

    Sorry.
    The book called "Mini Shopaholic", written by Sophie Kinsella.
    Th quote comes from chapter 21 of the book.

    It's a short way of saying "No high fives, group hugs, aren't we going to say 'Let's do this again'?"
