    A teen boy was talking to his friends, and he saw his girlfriend was passing by. He said to his friends, "I will check you out later".

    Does 'check you out later" mean see you later?

    Thanks!

    You have two phrases which mean slightly different things. Is it "check you later" or "check you out later"?

    I think it is "check you out" according to the subtitle.
    Thanks!

    Interesting... I would have expected "I'll check you later," as in I'll check in with you later, e.g. I'll be in touch or I'll get together with you later.

    But subtitles are notoriously unnuanced, so I have a feeling this is what was meant, even with the "out" in there.
