They’ve got a hotel to run.
I've across with the phrase above in a novel. But apparently it's a famous sentence in The Furchester Hotel:
They're furry and crazy - and they've got a hotel to run!
But what does it mean?
Note: James and Bradley are the hotel's owners.
The fuller text is:
“If we could all just stop pointing the finger at me for a minute, there’s something I’d like to bring up,” Matthew says. He knows he sounds a bit aggressive; he doesn’t care. They’ve practically accused him of murder, for God’s sake. “What’s that?” David says. “I think James and Bradley are hiding something.” James looks completely taken aback. Bradley flushes to the roots of his hair. “What do you mean?” James stammers. Matthew leans toward James and Bradley, who are seated together. “This is your hotel. Maybe you know something the rest of us don’t.” “Like what?” James says, on the defensive. “I don’t know. But I’ve seen you two whispering together. What have you been whispering about?” “We haven’t been whispering,” James says, coloring. “Yes, you have, I’ve seen you.” “Oh, for Christ’s sake,” Ian interjects, “they’ve got a hotel to run.”
