    "Can I pick you up at seven o'clock?" - "You are a cunning man!" – CowperKettle Jan 28 '17 at 5:59

When you pick up trash, you pick it and dispose of it properly, like in a trash can. However, pick up also has another meaning:

pick up
[transitive] to go and meet someone or something that you have arranged to take somewhere in a vehicle
Will you pick me up after the party?
I need to pick up my luggage before leaving.

It is often used to confirm a romantic date, as in

How about dinner tonight? I'll pick you up around seven (o'clock).

In other words, the second comment was a pick-up line used to ask the other person out on a date. "Is seven okay?" means "Is seven o'clock okay?", or "Can I pick you up at seven o'clock?"

The third comment, "you smooth fucker", is acknowledging that the other person was skillful, suave and that the pick-up line was clever.
