    Millenial talk

    Hello

    I can't zone in on what exactly those guys talk about and would like to as for your help.

    It's from Grown-ish s02e03. A talk in a cafe.

    Guy: Oh, wait, guys. There is a kickback at Hawkins. Who's in?
    Girl: No, pass. Nothing sadder than a bunch of dudes who couldn't even score at last call.

    1. Trying to learn English from a TV show is usually not a great idea. That this TV show focuses on college-age people makes it even worse.
    2. College-age people now are not "Millennials." These would be "Gen Z" (until a better name comes up).
    3. "Kickback" I assume refers to some sort of informal gathering. I am guessing from context. I am not hip on the slang used by young people today. Probably from "kicking back our heels."
    4. "Score" refers to successfully attracting a "mate" for the evening. "Last call" is right before the bars close. It's the last possible minute, when desperation may kick in.

    You are more hip (hipper?) than I. I had almost no idea what that exchange was about.
