I'm watching this clip of Friends in which everybody was making fun of Rachel when they found Rachel would freak out when something comes close enough to the eyeball.
Monica said "Me, Myself, and I?"; Chandler said "How much did I love The King and I?" The word "I" makes sense in both contexts, but what Ross said seems to be:
Hey, does anybody want to get some lunch? All those in favor say I?
I don't understand how the word "I" fits in this context. I looked up the word "favor" in Cambridge Dictionary and I see there are a few "in favor" expressions:
- be in favor of sth/doing sth: to support or approve of something
- in your favor: When something is in your favor, it gives you an advantage
- find in sb's favor: If a judge finds in someone's favor, he or she says that that person is not guilty.
Although I can understand each expressions separately, none of them seems to make sense in Ross's context of "lunch". Could someone explain the use of "I" in Ross's line and why "I" is appropriate there?
