Sissy You left Dan in the dust !
Heather We might have to wait a while. He's way behind. 
Sissy I hope he doesn't get lost without me to help him translate Spanish. 
Heather But he's good at Spanish. 
Sissy Oh, I wouldn't know. We only speak English. 
Heather Maybe you should try speaking Spanish to him and find out

In the dust - Far behind, as in a race or competition

Sally Both of you wake up. We have to go. 
Brett Mmm. I'm still sleeping. What is it ? 
Sally We have to see the sunrise at Taimali.
Brett Can't we do that another day? I'm dead-tired.
Sally When are we going to have this chance again ? Come on ! Get up !
Brett OK, OK. Hold your horses. I'm up.

Hold your horses - Slow down, be patient

Jones I've been reading about your election. What do you think about it ?
Dempsey I think Kerry might have a better shot with his VP choice, Edwards.
Jones He's a pretty boy, huh ? I read he sure can work a crowd.
Dempsey I saw him speak in Iowa during the primaries. He was really smooth.
Jones He's a lawyer, right ? He'd better be smooth. He's pretty young, too, right ?
Dempsey Yes, and he lacks experience. He's only a one-term senator

Work the crowd - To interact with one's audience in order to elicit the audience's attention and enthusiasm.

Coleen Let's swim while we wait for Matt.
Brett We can't. Too many jet skis on this beach. I don't understand why people like jet skis.
Coleen They're fun. Just look at Matt's smile. 
Brett They're noisy, dangerous, and polluting.
Coleen You're such a party pooper
Brett No, I'm just environmentally responsible

Party pooper - someone who spoils other people's enjoyment by disapproving of or not taking part in a particular activity

Adam You know, those seats are reserved for the elderly and ill.
Phil I'm sick, too. Look at me. See how white my face is ?
Adam That's your natural color, isn't it ? Don't be silly.
Phil Oh, alright. I guess I'll stand up.
Adam That's very kind of you. I know it's common to not give up your seat in the West.
Phil I guess it's more of a dog-eat-dog world where I come from

Dog-eat-dog - a situation in which people will do anything to be successful, even if what they do harms other people

Crossed my mind !!!
Remy It's settled. We're going to the East Coast.
Shaun Great, I can take lots of pictures. How will we get there ? 
Remy First, we'll take a train to Manhattan, then ...
Shaun If we want to do this trip right, let's ride bicycles.
Remy That thought hadn't crossed my mind. OK, we can carry the bikes on a bus...
Shaun No, I mean ride our bikes to the East Coast. We could get in shape.

Cross your mind - If something crosses your mind, you think of it
