‘take a pick’—choose sth/sb. as you wish
eg: We have enough money to buy any DVD player this store has, so take your pick.
‘that is a bad line’—line (specially to the sex) to show your good feeling.
eg: I didn’t give her my telephone number, because she used a terrible line.
I’m not good at meeting girls because I don’t have any pick up lines.
‘He is a ladies man.’—the man is popular by the women.
eg: My brother is a good looking guy and a smooth talker. Really he is kind of a ladies man!
‘She is totally buying it.’—buy here means believe
eg: He sais he could help me get a job at this company but I don’t buy it. He doesn’t have that much influence.
She told me she loves me but I don’t buy it. I sae her at dinner with her ex- last night.
