Sample transcript

Maura: So, to hit it off can be used with just friends but it can also be used in a romantic kind of way.
Jessie: Yeah, if you were going on a blind date, meeting someone for the first time that one of your friends set you up with and they asked you how it went later, you might say, “Oh, we really hit it off.”
Maura: Right, which means that it was the first date but you really liked each other right away.
Jessie: Right.
Maura: Or maybe you could say, “We didn’t hit it off.”
Jessie: Yes, if you didn’t like each other you could say you didn’t hit it off.
