Who can tell me the meaning of "take a beat"? Thanks a lot! There are some lines of "The Vampire Diary" . Katherine: I'm just a girl looking for a partner in crime. Feel like hitting the road? Getting the hell out of dodge? Damon: Impeccable timing. I was told I need to take a beat. Katherine: Is that a yes? I'll drive. I don't get the phrase "take a beat". Who can help me explain it? Thanks!

To take a break away from something. It comes from music, I think, where a short pause is called a beat.
