  • Michaela, you're not an alcoholic. You're allowed to have a glass of wine. - No one's looking. - I'm looking. Way to be a pillbox.

  • Gosh, you're quick. This is from last night's episode. Bitch-monkey is made up. Kids make up stuff all the time, and some things are literally limited to some school or other.

There is the idiom, "Don't be such a pill!" or "You're such a pill!" which is used to express the idea that the person is a party-pooper or is aggravating you or getting on your nerves. The person is "hard to take". This appears to be a "one-upping" of that idiom, calling the person an entire box of pills.
