In the comedy Weird Loners there is an exchange,

You guys eat up, that's plenty.

I really cleaned out the place.

What does it mean?

1 Answer 1


"Clean out" means to empty the contents.

clean out

2.) To empty of contents or occupants.

4.) Slang To deprive completely of money or material wealth: The robbery cleaned us out.

So, in this context, it means the person ate all the food, though that's likely a exaggeration. Best inference of the meaning: the person ate a bunch of food.
