    I didn't put two thousand by mistake

    A : I owe the car to you.

    B : Yes, A, that's what's worrying me.

    A : Worrying you, A?

    B : Yes. That cheque I gave you for your wedding present -- it was only two hundred pounds, wasn't it? I - I didn't put two thousand by mistake?

    Could you explain what the `B' mean the highlighed words/phrases?

    A bought an expensive car. B wonders how A could have afforded it. B recalls giving A a cheque for 200 pounds, which isn't enough to buy an expensive car. So, do A's words I owe the car to you mean that B paid for the car; that B's cheque had an extra 0, making it 2,000 pounds, not 200? B questions that.

    Does that help?
