  • Do your Marcel Marceau.

  • It's actually good if you hated the bracelet so much channeling.

  • You should have just said so.

  • Why doesn't the fact that I wore the bracelet even though I hated it, say something about our friendship and how much it means to me.

  • But what about the fact that you insulted the bracelet and you made fun of me?

  • Okay, well, that's the part where I'm a wink.

  • But I was hoping I wouldn't focus on that.

  • It's about you and me and the fact that we're best buds.

  • Oh, is this friendship?

  • I think so.

  • Check it out with buddies.

  • That's what they'll call us, how to talk about friendship in English.

  • We have many terms of endearment that is caring ways to refer to a friend or loved one that one can use to address a male friend.

  • In general, a woman would not like being addressed with these terms, but they may use it with guy friends.

  • In this scene, we see many used.

  • So listen for them in the rest of the scene and start using them in your own English to sound more confident and native like.

  • Here are some examples, man, Dude, mostly in the U.

  • S.

  • Mate, mostly outside of the United States and countries like the U K Australia and South Africa buddy or Bud Bro, Brother pal, homey homes or home slice.

  • There are, of course more, but these are probably the ones that you will see used most commonly in everyday English.

  • Also feel free to choose a couple of thes and use them in an example.

  • In the comments below, we will correct many of your answers.

  • 812 bucks, Bucks common and formal word for dollars.

  • Example.

  • Can you lend me five bucks for the train ticket?

  • I don't know what Big Leon told you, but it's an even 1000 if you want me for the whole night.

  • It's an even 1000 if you want me for the whole night.

  • Chandler is making a joke as if he were a prostitute and that Big Leon, a name he invented in the moment, was his pimp.

  • A pimp is a prostitute's manager, and a male prostitute is also known as a gigolo.

  • What's this for?

  • What's this for?

  • Well, making money now.

  • And this is paying you back for headshots, electric bills and make money, a common complication that means to earn money.

  • Example.

  • He makes a lot of money in the auto parts business.

  • We have a lot of different ways to talk about making money.

  • For example, we say someone's killing it when they're making a lot of money.

  • However, if you are earning little, we say you're barely getting by or you're struggling to make ends meet when you reach the end of the month and have very little money left.

  • Pay back to return an amount of money that someone lent to you.

  • Can I borrow five bucks from you?

  • I'll pay you back tomorrow.

  • Head shot a picture of a person's face for professional or formal years.

  • So many slices of pizza I can't even count can.

  • I can't even count now and get my pony I can get my pony.

  • Chandler is joking that with all this unexpected money, you can buy something ridiculous like a pony.

  • The humor is that many little girls want their own pony, and also that this is obviously something that no one in New York City would buy.

  • This is a little extra something for, you know, always being there for me.

  • A little something.

  • We sometimes used these words together to mean a present or gift example.

  • I got a little something for you to be there For someone.

  • This means that you make yourself available to support someone when they have a problem.

  • Example.

  • She was really there for me when my grandma died.

  • Wow, I don't know what to say.

  • I don't know what to say.

  • Receive this expression used in two ways here which depend completely on the tone of voice.

  • First, it is used as a thank you.

  • Similar tow words can't express my gratitude.

  • But then humorously the meaning changes when Chandler actually sees what the gift is.

  • In this case, he doesn't know what to say because he is shocked.

  • Example.

  • I didn't know what to say when my boss said he wanted me to work on Christmas.

  • Now listen to the tone when Chandler says it in Surprise.

  • Wow, I don't know what to say.

  • What do you say?

  • I don't know.

  • Finally, Joey says, What do you say?

  • Which is a way to solicit a response from someone similar to What do you think?

  • Example.

  • What if we go fishing this weekend?
