In The Kissing Booth 2 (2020), Elle and Lee asks Marco to be kisser at the kissing booth:

Elle: It's the most popular booth! And it's for charity. Don't you believe in charity?

Marco: I'm standing here talking to you.

Lee: Hey! Whoo-hoo-hoo! That was a good... one.

(Lee high fives with Marco)

What's the joke in Lee's words?

  • Marco is making a joke that it's charity work to be keeping Elle company. – Jason Bassford Jul 29 '20 at 6:10
  • As answered by other posters. Lee is not making a joke. Lee is responding to Marco's intentionally mean-spirited and sarcastic joke. – Dean F. Jul 29 '20 at 15:17

Elle asks

Don't you believe in charity?

and Marco responds

I'm standing here talking to you.

You could even tack on a "aren't I?" for a greater emphasis. In other words, he is implying that his charity is talking to her as no one would want to talk to her otherwise.
