    Smile comic books question #10

    In the sentence below, what does "large" mean?

    As long as you owe me twelve large, you'll take all the humiliation I can dish out.

    It's a slang reference to money. I think "large" in this case refers to an increment of a thousand, hence "12 large" is $12,000.
