    meaning of an expression

    Can anyone explain the meaning of bolded phrase?

    'WOW!' he said, bringing his hand to his face as the villian launched a torpedo from his backpack.

    'What the hell do you see in these movies?' I whispered just to jack his trip.

    Thanks n regards..

    "jack" means to jerk around, shake up or break
    "his trip" was his enjoyable state
