English term or phrase: oily
Contesto: Bill e Sue, marito e moglie, discutono (e poi litigheranno) sulla loro cagnetta, che Bill detesta e Sue ama. Sue: She's not smelly... Bill: Did you smell her today? Sue: I smelled her. She smelled good. I petted her, and my hands didn't stink or feel oily. Your hands have never smelled oily" Capisco che c'è un doppio senso, ma non quale. Il dialogo continua così. Bill: Yes, sir. Sue: I've never let my dog get oily. Bill: Yes, sir. She's a dog. Sue: My dog has never gotten oily" ecc.

(forse riferito al fatto che lui non fa nulla in casa e non sa neanche cosa significhi avere a che fare con cucina, detersivi, piatti sporchi, nè tantomeno col cane da lavare....!!!)
