    Casey: Sexy man.

    Farrah: OH! I think I know this one! Someone who's acting like a douchecanoe??

    Lara: It's a term that means no more, like when someone texts you "LOL" for the fourth time, you say "NO MAMES."

    Casey: No thank you, ma'am.

    Farrah: Something you say to someone who sends you too many memes.

    Actual definition: "no way" or "stop messing around!"

    Lara: I think this is saying that something sucks. For example, "wow driving on the 101 at 6 p.m. is estoy crudo."

    Casey: I am cruddy.

    Farrah: A phrase reserved for terrible hangovers. "I am feeling SUPER INCREDIBLY hungover."

    Actual definition: Hungover

    Lara: This must be a term that refers to the moon. "LOOK AT THAT MOON!" "Marty, stop talking about my butt." "NO REALLY, THE MOON."

    Casey: Jerk!

    Farrah: Let's go party!

    Actual definition: "Ah shit!"

    Lara: A term meaning, "YEAH WE KNOW." Like when your friend tells you for the sixth time how drunk he was last weekend you can respond by saying, "ANDO BIEN PEDO."

    Actual definition: "I'm very drunk."

    Lara: Yelling at someone about water? Which, is valid, considering the drought. I would yell at my old roommate about this had I known..."YO AGUAS GIRL, GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE SHOWER."

    Casey: What you shout at someone who is as cool as water.

    Farrah: Something you yell before doing a cannonball.

    Actual definition: "Watch out!"

    Actual definition: A snobbish person.

    Actual definition: Right on, alright, OK, etc.

    Lara: Are you serious??!?! Like when someone says they don't like guacamole 鈥"驴QU脡 ONDA?"

    Farrah: "What the actual fuck."

    Actual definition: "What's up?"
