    which or where?

    1."You're in the place we discussed?" Does this sentence mean "You're in the place which we discussed?", or "You're in the place where we discussed?" ?

    2."A friend of mine should be along there shortly." What does "along" mean in this sentence? If I say, "A friend of mine should get there shortly."
    Is there a difference between them?

    Context:
    Kellerman -Kellerman.
    Woman - You're in the place we discussed?
    Kellerman - Yes. I'm still not exactly sure why we're here, but...
    Woman - A friend of mine should be along there shortly.
    Kellerman - A friend?
    Woman - Just to see where you are with things.
    Kellerman - I think we're clear on where we are with things. Everything's under control. Nothing is going to affect tomorrow, if that's what you're worried about.

    Thank you.

    Is it from Prison Break?

    I think....

    1. You're in the place we discussed? = You're in the place that(which) we discussed? (Not ...where we discussed)
    2. A friend of mine should be along there shortly. = A friend of mine should join you / be close to where you are shortly.

    I'm not a native speaker of English, so please wait for others to reply.
