I have a question about a sentence from the television sitcom Friends. The six are playing poker, and the girls lose.
Phoebe: Alright, here's my $7.50. But I think you should know that this money is cursed.
Phoebe: I cursed it. So now bad things will happen to he who spends it.
Chandler: That's alright, I'll take it. Bad things happen to me anyway. This way I can split 'em up with a movie.
I can't understand the this line. How are bad things related to a movie? What does it mean to "split 'em up"? Does it mean by watching a movie he can escape the doom?
