Johan: I bombed my English midterm exam. I didn't spend too much time preparing for it, and all I could do during the exam was just sit there.
Pag: Yeah, I heard you spend a lot of Wii time last month. You still have the final exam to make up for the midterm, right?
Johan: I'm sure I will fail that too.
Peg: This might cheer you up. According to a news report I read on Yahoo, a 95-year-old woman is expected to finally graduate from college next month, making her the world's oldest college graduate. So don't worry, if you do poorly on your final, you still have seventy more years to make it up!
Johan: Whoa, I definitely don't want to stay in school THAT long. I think I better pull my socks up for the final.

解析: pull one's socks up==加把勁
