Oh My my my just a a Bit of shock is all but I’ll be fine. You can go again. I’m okay Hey, I need your help Well, it seems serious What seems to be the problem Ashley Judd? Look, I’m getting new headshots taken. All right, so I want to get my eyebrows shaped. I’m sorry moment to make fun of that, please Maybe but I’ll still pound you into the ground All right, look, it hurts so bad I could only let her do one eyebrow and now they don’t match It’s like a baby caterpillar chasing its mama Okay, look I have a magic marker I want you to fill in the skinny one so I don’t look stupid for my pictures Okay, first of all, this is green All right, I will help you out but you have to promise me you will not tell anyone what I’m about to tell you What what? Okay, you know how most kids get their allowance from mowing the lawn or taking out the garbage Well, I earn mine by plucking The eyebrows of my father and his business partners I Guess you don’t need my help, Victor, Victoria I do I need your help. But Chandler. I don’t know if I can take any more pluck and it hurts so bad Oh with my combination of Ice Cube’s aloe vera and my gentle self-loathing touch And done oh my god, I Didn’t feel a thing. Hey, are you still looking for a job because you could tweeze circles around that sadistic bitch at the salon Thank you want to see what it looks like yeah, yeah They totally match Yeah, I think it looks pretty good I was a little bit worried that I was Uncovering a birthmark right about there, but it turned out to be a little piece of chocolate Okay Chandler. Thank you so much. No problem. Listen, uh That’s a pretty girly hour. We just spent we should probably do some manly makeup for it. Yeah Curl my eyelashes. Yeah! I’m here for my eyebrow Appointment eyebrows line of hair that grows over your eye appointment an agreement to meet with someone at a particular time, especially in a professional sense example I have an appointment with the dentist tomorrow morning. Okay, very good Have a seat right over here. Mr. Bing and Sonya we’ll be right with you She’ll be right with you. We can insert right into some phrases to say that something will happen immediately She’ll be right with you means that she will be with him in a few seconds the phrase I’ll be right back I mean someone will return in the brief moment You can also express the same idea with right after as in I got a job right after I arrived in the city You’re looking to meet somebody You’re looking to meet somebody you’re looking to to want or try to do something Example we’re looking to move out next month This part was funny as Joey asks If many men go to the salon because he’s insecure about doing something feminine like waxing his eyebrows However, the woman assumes because he is there in this lawn. He must be gay and believes He is asking for a date. This only adds to Joey’s insecurities Get to the wax in a minute first. I want to tweeze some of the strays Okay wax a substance used to remove hair Wax is also a verb as people often wax different parts of their body to remove hair tweets to pluck for example to remove Individual hairs with the tweezer Straight by a stray she means a stray hair which is an individual hair That sticks out from the rest of the hair or is not in its proper place Other common collocations are a stray bullet a bullet that was supposed to go somewhere else and a stray dog A dog that has no home this may sting Please an extremely high To sting if something stings it causes a quick sharp pain like a bee sting Threshold the point or level at which something starts to have an effect Your pain threshold is the point at which pain is tolerable for you a person with a high pain threshold Tolerates a lot of pain Joey was starting to say that he has an extremely high threshold for pain As it turns out though. His threshold wasn’t nearly as high as he thought just a a bit of shock dissolve Shock a strong and usually unpleasant feeling of surprise The hair plucking came as a shock to Joey because he wasn’t expecting it to hurt so much You could say he was in shock or in a state of shock example I’m still in shock the movie didn’t get any Oscar Awards. Look I’ve getting new headshots taken All right, so I’m going to get my eyebrows shaped I’m getting new headshots taken a headshot is a picture of someone’s face and for actors They’re the portrait used as a part of their resume to get work the structure in this verb phrase Get or have plus something plus Past participle verb is very common in English to talk about something someone did for us for example We say I got my haircut or I got my car fix which would be different from saying I cut my hair or I fixed My car both of which cases would mean you yourself Did that action when Joey says I’m getting my headshots taken you means someone will take a headshot of him Maybe a sissy but I’ll still pound you into the ground Sissy this word is used in a negative way to referred someone with a cowardly attitude But also speaking and acting like a girl or in other words being girly. I’ll still pound you into the ground Literally to hit something really hard pound is to repeatedly hit until it goes into the ground Figuratively Joey’s saying that he can be Chandler in a fight example I pounded the nail with this hammer, but it didn’t going to the wall. Alright, look it hurts so bad I could only let her do one eyebrow and now they don’t match so Bad used after certain verbs to mean very much Common collocations are to want something so bad or to miss someone so bad Whether the correct word to use in such a way is badly, but natives usually break this rule It’s like a baby caterpillar chasing its mama caterpillar a small worm like creature that changes into a butterfly Chandler jokes about Joey’s eyebrows looking like a small caterpillar next to its larger mother Look I have a magic marker. I want you to fill in the skinny one so I don’t look stupid for my picture skinny Very thin example. You better eat more. He’s a skinny boy He’s supposed to to do what is normal common or expected in a specific situation For example when you’re at the movies, you’re supposed to turn off your cell phone example She was supposed to meet me in 3:00, but she was 45 minutes late You know how most kids get their allowance from mowing the lawn or taking out the garbage? well iron, mine by plucking the eyebrows of my father and his Business partners allowance a small amount of money that is regularly given to children by the parents in exchange for chores or simple jobs Example my father gave me an allowance of five dollars a week. Mow the lawn The lawn is the grassy area in front of or behind a house We cut or mow it with a lawn woman cluck to pull something with your fingers in order to remove it from where it grows out of we say to plug a hair to pluck a feather from a bird to pluck the petals off of a flower or to pluck a fruit from a tree his business partners Chandler does air quotes or Quotes with his fingers air quotes draws attention to the fact that what you put quotes around is not really true In the case of Chandler’s father’s business partners with air quotes If you follow friends you know that Chandler’s dad was secretly a transvestite a man who dresses like woman and his business partners may refer to other Transvestites from his show a transvestite might plug his eyebrows to appear more feminine I guess you don’t need my help, Victor, Victoria Victor Victoria a famous musical comedy starring a cross-dressing man or a man who dresses like a woman It hurts so bad can’t take it anymore. Yeah like Joey in this scene you can’t take something It means you can’t tolerate or withstand it example, I used to be okay with her negative attitude, but I can’t take it anymore So you just learned the expression can’t take it. Can you think of any more? examples with this expression Leave it down in the comment box below and we will be correcting many of your answers Also, please remember to Like and subscribe this video so that we can send you the newest Every single week. All right. Let’s get back into the lesson Oh with my combination of Ice Cube’s aloe vera and my gentle self-loathing touch Self-loathing touch loathing comes from the verb to loathe which means to hate for example I vote this city’s climate his turn the South lobe describes a person who hates or strongly dislikes him or herself Chandler might hate or loathe himself because he’s very embarrassed about his a surprising talents, which many would consider womanly I didn’t feel a thing a thing is a colloquial and emphatic way to say nothing as in the example I didn’t learn a thing in that course. I didn’t say a thing Hey, are you still looking for a job because you could tweeze circles around that sadistic bitch? It’s a so we already learned what tweeze means but when we say to do something Circles around somebody we’re saying that you do it a lot better than the competition For example if someone is a fast runner They run circles around other runners or in this case saying Chandler can tweeze circles around that woman means that he’s a lot better sadistic enjoyment that someone gets from causing pain someone that was a little bit worried that I was Uncovering a birthmark right about there birthmark a mark on the skin produced from the time before someone was born I would do some manly oh you some manly I Would do some manly that’s a pretty girly hour we just spent we should probably do some manly makeup for us girl a manly these words refer to activities or attitudes that are characteristic of females or males Respectively while polishing nails would be considered girly Playing a contact sport like rugby is generally considered a manly activity make up for something to make a bad situation Better by compensating or replacing something bad with something good Example you had to work overtime to make up for being late. Komai left. Yeah Curl, my eyelashes to curl referring to hair is the opposite of to straighten eyelashes our hairs attached the eyelid many women Use an eyelash curler to make their eyes pop out more Hey, yeah, I’m here for my eyebrow appointment name Chandler Bing Okay, very good have a seat right over here mr. Bing and Sonya we’ll be right with you, okay. Thanks I Touch the stuff Thanks so do you uh Do you get a lot of guys in here? Oh, absolutely Oh Good. Yeah, you’re looking to meet somebody.

  1. I trying to learn english and you help me for this. Thank you so much ( I hope I've spelled correctly 😊)

  2. I love your video so much. It would've been much better with a good audio quality when you explained. 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Excellent lesson! I was wondering the meaning of air quotes and how it can be used:)

    It would be better for me if you can leave out the explanations for some easy vocabulary such as appointment, wax, shock, etc.

  4. Make your next video out of this mtv's clip. It's too funny and a little violent
    https://youtu.be/RX7gUfbIeRM

  5. Awesome lessons 😀 I love watching tv series….how do you get these clips from all these tv shows without the issue of copyright??

  6. His rude behaviour was so annoying that I can't take it anymore. Plz check my sample sentence. Follow you from Azerbaijan, Baku. Love you))

  7. Thanks a lot for these videos, I just started teaching English as a foreign language, and I'd been on the lookout for videos like these to help students out. Would definitely recommend this channel. 👍🏽

  8. Thanks a lot. This’s the best way to learn languages. I just wish if you could focus more on the pronunciation section.

  9. Here is my example:
    My speaking skill is low so bad. I can't take it anymore. I need to practice more and more =))))

    Btw, all of videos of you guys are weird and I love them so bad.

  10. stray dog stray hair
    do something circles around somebody means do it better than others
    eg. they run circles around other runners
    loath=hate
    pain threshold

  11. Alguém me ajudar. O que tenho que fazer nas aulas, algo do tipo, tenho que escrever as coisas todas que eu não sei ou só ver o vídeo

  12. Professor, o que devo fazer com algumas sentenças que , no portuquês, não tem tradução exata. Algumas frases que quando coloco em um tradutor, ou coisa do tipo, não aparece o sentido exato. Tipo : handle a stick. Aparece segurar uma vara e na aula tem outro sentido

  13. I love your video very much. May I have some request? That subtitle was overlapped. So I can't read it entirely. Thank you a lot.

  14. I can't take his complaints anymore. I yelled at her yesterday because I couldn't take what she mentioned at the meeting anymore.

  15. One of my friends always make fun of my hairstyle, honestly I can’t take it anymore. I’m gonna talk to her about stopping it.

  16. My friend chandler always make fun out of me…I can’t take it anymore! Maybe just he doesn’t know when to stop.

  17. Thanks for your videos. But I don't really get why you explain the meaning of simple words or phrases such as "so bad" or "match". It seems to me that it's better to highlight only tricky words for advanced learners. Or you can divide videos by levels so everyone could learn new words gradually.

  18. I'm done with my English I can't take it anymore😊 . Great job guys! Try to upload videos daily. I'm really glad to watch your videos.
