English term or phrase:that makes two meters that got turned off early
Dans "Madame est servie" :
Tony: Hey, Ay Ay, Who is this bozo?
Ang: Tony, this bozo is my boss!
Tony: It's you're boss? I thought they chased you round your desk, not around your stove!
Grant: I don't find that very amusing, and I don't have to explain myself to a male Mary Poppins.
Tony: Mary Poppins huh? You're lucky I like that movie or I'd take care of you. (He moves towards Grant)
Ang: Grant, behave yourself.
Grant: Don't tell me to behave myself. Talk to Conan The Barbarian here.
Tony: Now that movie I hated.
(He goes for Grant, Angela steps between them)
Ang: That's enough, Tony, go to your room.
Ang: Tony. Go to your room!
(He leaves the kitchen muttering under his breath)
Ang: Grant, go to your cab.
(She and Grant go into the Living Room. Tony's still there)
Ang: Tony! Go to your room!
Tony: I'm going, I'm going.
Ang: Grant I'm very sorry about this. We'll talk about the weekend at the office tomorrow? Well, look on the bright side; you just saved a fortune in cab fare.
Grant: Great. That makes two meters that got turned off early.
Tony: (still on the stairs) Bye Grant (!)
Grant is Angela's boss but he's flirting with her and asked his cab to be waiting for him while he's trying to seduce Angela. Tony arrived in the kitchen while Angela and Grant were kissing each other (on the floor 'cause they broke a plate and kissed) and he thought the guy was attacking Angela.
