Crash (to stay overnight in someone ele's dwelling, usually without notice or formal arrangement; to go to sleep after becoming extremely tired)
- Cut it out! (stop it!)
- Down in the dumps (depressed)
- Fire up (to get excited about something; to motivate)
- Go bananas (to be so excited than one loses control of oneself)
- Jerk (person who cannot do things correctly; a midly derogatory term)
- Jock (an athlete or athletic person, or one who is not very intelligent)
- John (another name for the toilet or bathroom facilities; head)
- Loosen up! (relax)
