1. This is comparing overweight women to the football players who are particularly large. 2. "Back up" means that Harry left details out of the story that Ray wants to hear. Harry talked about being at a hospital with someone who has a broken nose. Rex is probably confused about why the nose is broken and wants Ray to tell more of the story of what happened before getting to the hospital. "Back up" can also be used in a physical sense if someone needs to move backward from where they are standing. 3. Romeo is the military word for the letter R. When you say letters over a radio, they are often confusing since many of them rhyme. (B, C, D, E, P, T, etc.) So, every letter has a word that goes with it. Instead of saying the letter, people will say the word so there is no confusion. Here, the number of the plane this man is in is 815R.
