  • "It's a guy thing."
    Really means: "There is no rational thought pattern connected with it, and you have no chance at all of making it logical."

  • "Can I help with dinner?"
    Really means: "Why isn't it already on the table?"

  • "Uh-huh." "Sure, honey." "Yes, dear."

    Really means: "Are you still talking?"

  • "Hey, I've got my reasons for what I'm doing."

  • "I can't find it."
    Really means: "It didn't fall into my outstretched hands, so I'm completely clueless."

  • "You know I could never love anyone else."
    Really means: "I am used to the way you yell at me and realize it could be worse."

  • "You look terrific."
    Really means: "Please don't try on one more outfit. I'm starving."

  • "I'm not lost. I know exactly where we are."
    Really means: "No one will ever see us alive again."
