Excuse me, could you help me? I'm always at a loss for these sentences, which be spoken by native speaker!

1.This girl definitely has taste. It's not fair, MacKendrick. You always hog all quality women.

Q1: what does this mean ----This girl definitely has taste.
Q1-1: "hog" here means "to occupy", right?



2.This round's on me. You can get the next one if you want.

Q2: Does this mean: this time i'll treat you (to drink?), but next time you 'll pay or not?



3.Myles seemed to be a big hit with all the girls.

Q3: Does this mean: Myles is a popular guy among girls?


4.I understand you have a pretty good shot at that second runner-up
again.

Q4: sorry, i 'm not sure the meaning of this sentence!!



Sorry for occupying your time!! and thank you very much! ^^ :lol:

If she has "taste" it means she makes good choices in certain things. For example, if she has good taste in clothes that means she wears nice clothes. If she has good taste in wine that means she chooses the better wines.

To hog something is to keep it for oneself and not let anybody else have it.

Yes, it means, "I'll pay this time and you can pay the next time."

It means he has a good chance of becoming second runner up. (Second runner up is third place. Runner up is second place.)
