In the scene we’re studying today three people are in a car that they’ve stolen – which I know because I read some of the plot summary on Wikipedia – and the driver is worried because there’s a police car behind them and he’s worried that the police know that they’ve stolen the car.
He says: Get down. They’re on to us.
To be on to someone means to have found out about some secret bad thing that someone’s doing.
But the other guy says: Cut it out, Gerry, they’re not even looking at us.
Cut it out is something that you say to someone when you want them to stop doing or saying something annoying. It’s something that a parent might say to their kids when the kids are arguing. Cut it out!
Then later the guy in the passenger seat says: May as well pull over.
Pull over means to stop the car on the side of the road.
May as well or might as well is a common idiom. I use it a lot.
to do sth because it seems best in the situation that you are in, although you may not really want to do it
In this situation, the guy says may as well pull over because the police are behind them and he thinks that there’s no way they can escape.
