This conversation is really odd and doesn't sound like a real conversation that women would have between themselves at all. Where did you get this from??? Firstly, "knowing Vero" essentially means that "I know Vero and I know what what she would do/say"
The really odd parts:
1. No one says "piece o' scrap," and I mean No One.
2. "spouting nonsense ... don't pay too much attention" - Jill was asked a question & she answered reasonably so why would she say this? It's just a very odd thing to put in here.
3. What does waterboarding have to do with the discussion of getting hit on by someone? Is Deal suggesting that Betty waterboard the cousin? Why does the conversation veer towards that? It goes off into an odd direction.
4. The Girl Scouts do not teach anyone how to skin a deer, I'm pretty sure the boy scouts don't either.
5. We say that a woman is "as flat as a board" not a "cutting" board; we also say "flat as a pancake"
So, I would not use that conversation to study English & whomever wrote it is most likely NOT a native speaker of English. I would not trust the source.
"Knowing Vero" in this contest is a semi humorous/semi annoyed or disgusted way of saying..knowing her sense of humor, knowing what she is likely to do/ find funny, setting me up like this is something she would do.
