a line on the TV show Friends.thanks.the scripts are below, and the questions are in square brackets ...... CH: Hey, what did your agent say? JO: Yep, this kiss thing is definitely a problem, the director wants to see it again. I gotta figure out what I'm doing wrong. Oh, 【one of you girls come over here and kiss me】. MO: What, forget it! RA:【 Yeah, right】. JO: Come on, I need your help. ....... Q1: 【one of you girls come over here and kiss me】, why not use the singular form of the verb "come" and "kiss", I looked it up in the dictionary, and it says "Grammar: 'one of' should be followed by a plural noun but a singular verb, as in one of the doors WAS (NOT WERE) open. " so, the way I see it, it should be "one of you girls comeS over here and kissES me" Q2.【 Yeah, right】.is it a response to Monica's "forget it"? as in "yeah, Monica, you're right , let's forget about it and not kiss him, or is it a response to Joey's "come and kiss me"? so, rachel is being ironic here? as in "yeah right (I won't kiss u)!"

1. It's the imperative, so it's conjugated differently from the present. "Monica comes over here" is present; "Monica, come over here" is imperative. Or "I'm addressing one of you girls right now. Come over here ..." 2. She's being sarcastic and she means the opposite of what she says. She really means "No. That's not going to happen". :)

"Yeah, right" is almost always a sarcastic phrase. It means "no, definitely not".
