Yes, and I'm looking at him.


Repairman: Sorry, ma'am, I think this dishwasher's pretty much had it.
Son: Does that mean we're getting a new one?
Son's mom: Yes, and I'm looking at him.

I wonder who "him" is, if "him" is her son, I wonder why "you" is not used.

    "Him" = "the new dishwasher" here. It's a bit of a joke, a play on the fact that "dishwasher" can mean either "a machine that washes the dishes" or "a person that washes the dishes."
