    1.Mechanics like to jack up the prices for women.

    jack up: 增加,提高,所以是說商人托高給女人的價錢

    2.He was so angry he hit the roof.

    hit the roof : 大發雷霆

    3.Would you put your John Hancock on this form?

    John Hancock : 親筆簽名

    table.

    6.We are going on vacation and will be letting down our hair.

    7.No one will buy the cow if they get the milk for free.

    應該是沒人會買牛,當牛奶是免費的意思!
