When I saw Shape of Water, the movie, I heard the following dialogue:
Now, that's one thing. That's real decent of him. But the other kind of decency... it doesn't really matter. We sell it, but it's an export. We sell it because we don't use it.
I didn't get the meaning of 'export'. Why was the general talking about export all of a sudden? Is there any hidden meaning of 'export'?
