    I came up with some variations of faced as an adjective. Two-faced, for example, means duplicitous. Prune-faced means having a face like a prune (wrinkled). Red-faced means embarrassed. (I'll let Cas or Tdol answer the one about shit-faced.)

    As far as I know, faced is, by itself, not an adjective, and by no means does it necessarily have to do with dirty talking (or talking dirty).

    Shitfaced (often just a single word in British English) means very drunk or, more commonly, very drugged up.

    I was being serious. :D sh*t-faced is another way of saying faced (i.e. Mom and Dad are going to be so sh*t-faced). The word sh*t was omitted from Monica's line because one cannot say sh*t on prime time TV. (Freedom of speech: people have the right to say what they think shouldn't be said) :wink:

    Ohh, got it a little more now.
    Btw, shit and fuck actually didn't appear in Friends show,but in the other way, there are still a lot of dirty words too.
    Are this two words the dirtiest words in English language?
    But these two words can be easily found in some of American movies.


    Chinese word for "shit faced" means that someone seems like very very frustrated or idiotic. Similar? :wink:

    "No one has a lower opinion of you than I do."
    means speaker disrespects or despise the listener?

    I would say that "idiotic" applies, since, as Tdol noted, it means "drunk".

    Yes. It means the speaker has a very low opinion of the person (more so than anybody else).

    Strictly speaking, ain't is a contraction of am not, but as you noted it is used in a variety of ways. Since ain't has not been allowed to keep polite company, it has pretty much gone its own way.
