    Keeping Bobby

    107
    00:06:28,134 --> 00:06:29,829
    What did you say to her?

    108
    00:06:29,869 --> 00:06:32,702
    I told her the one... remember he told you that he was gonna peel your skin off

    109
    00:06:32,739 --> 00:06:35,037
    and dry it in the sun

    110
    00:06:35,075 --> 00:06:37,805
    and use it as a condom
    and fuck your mother?

    111
    00:06:37,844 --> 00:06:39,812
    You said that
    to your ex-wife?

    112
    00:06:39,846 --> 00:06:41,313
    Well, I was mad.

    00:06:41,347 --> 00:06:44,475

    The context is hardly conclusive, but, apparently, Bobby is a mutual child of divorced parents. It looks like Bobby stays with father from time to time, and the person who says the bolded-out phrase warns the other one that the latter's wife will stop that practice and Bobby will no longer allowed to stay with the father.

    I'm afraid this interpretation doesn't fit the overall vibe of the film. My hunch is that it might be some sort of slang or a set expression, but googling the phrase didn't help.

    sounds like the already mentioned custody thing. I don't understand your response about the vibe of the movie. There either is or is not a custody issue, what does the vibe of the movie have to do with that?

    The line comes from the film Operation Endgame and after watching the clip... I agree with the others.
    Bobby is the guard's son. The first guard tells the second one that he used that really nasty insult on his ex-wife. The second guard warns him to more careful what he says to his ex-wife or she is going to end up keeping him (Bobby) all the time OR having custody of him (Bobby) all the time.

    here is the clip (R rated movie here fans).
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.
