buy off — to bribe [dict]

On “Frasier”, Frasier’s father ask Frasier and Niles to walk his dog since he has to go to work. Frasier hates dogs, so he asks Roz: “If you can walk the dog for me, I will pay you 100 dollars”. His brother, Niles, also says to Daphne: “If you do that, I will give you 100 dollars too. Wow, that’s 200 dollars!” Roz immediately slaps Frasier in his face: “I cannot believe you try to buy me off.” And Daphne also slaps Niles: “Me too”.
