Sample transcript

Maura:  OK, so this episode we’re really just looking at funny or clever or unusual ways to say, let’s leave, or I’m going to leave.
Robin: I’m going to leave.
Maura: Yeah, and let’s bounce is the first example. So how else can we say, let’s go or I want to leave?
Robin: Well, there’s another expression that’s very similar and that is let’s jet.
Maura: Right, good, so let’s jet.
Robin: Let’s jet.
Maura: Just kind of like jet, like the airplane. So sometimes this expression can mean to leave quickly, like if I say, “sorry I gotta jet” means that I have to leave quickly and go somewhere else.
