Watching the sitcome 'Friends', I chanced to hear this expression
- " When were you under me?"

I'll put you in the context.

Rachel who was drunk, by mistake, leaves a message to Ross,
saying she loved him but she was over him now.

Checking the message the next day, quite stunned, Ross talks to her back,

"Are you over me? When were you under me?"

Right here, I could hear the audience laugh like crzay.


Would it be quite weird to say in normal conversations,

" I am under you. But I will be over you soon." ?

Would the listener respond,
"What the hell are you talking about"

Or can it make sense in certain situations ?

@SMickey,
It's a sex joke.

It's a play on words; to be "over" someone can mean to be physically above them e.g. during sex or to have moved on following the end of a relationship with that person. Only in the physical sense is "under" the opposite of "over".

@contrex,
Thanks. So I'd better not use that with an intention of saying 'Do you love me?'
I appreciate you answering.

@SMickey,
No, don't do it.

If you're the kind that doesn't take advice, do come back and let us know what happened.
