talk up

talk up — To speak in favor of; promote [dict]

In On Friends (note: this is a systematic error I've made so far. Thank Shawn for the correction), Ross was dating his young student Elizabeth. Before meeting his girlfriend's father in the coffee bar, Ross asked everyone to say good things about him in front of the future father-in-law (acted by Bruce Wills Willis, cool …). Later Rachel rushed into the coffee bar. Without knowing the girl's father was already sitting there, she said, "Sorry, Ross. I am late but I am ready to talk you up. So when does Liz's father get here?"

    I usually say On Friends, … rather than In Friends.

  2. Feng said,

    Yes, you are right. It should be "On …". I made this mistake quite consistently in the past posts. Thanks for pointing this out.
