John Grisham's "the Summons": --------- He loved a good funeral, hated weddings though. --------- I love weddings, --------- Four or five? --------- Four, and counting. what does "counting" mean here? 2. talking about casino: ---------- How did you do? --------- I won a couple of thousand at blackjack. They comped me a room. --------- I paid for that damned room. Probably the whole floor. --------- I love their free drinks, twenty bucks a pop. what does "comped" and "pop" mean here in the dialogue, thank you for your help

"And counting" means it wont be the last one. It is insinuating that this marriage wont last either. "Comped" they gave it to him for free. " a pop" means for each one. He is being sarcastic when he says "free" drinks, they actually cost $20 each at the casino they visited.
