ferocious looking cutlet


Senior Member
Hi everyone.

Ted and Barney are at the entrance of a nightclub where some gorgeous girls are passing by. (Barney to Ted)
oh, my! There are some ferocious looking cutlets here tonight.

I assume "ferocious" here means violent but have no idea about "cutlet"

Would you please help?

    A "cutlet" is a serving of meat at a restaurant. "Ferocious looking" means "exciting looking" in this situation.

    Barney is a womanizer, dating and having sex with as many women as possible. He uses exaggerated language when talking about women.

    Also, this is a TV script, which tries to invent new and interesting phrases very often. This is one.
