What does "a lot to take" mean? When do you use this expression?
Here, "a lot to take (in)" means something like "overwhelming" or "a lot to deal with." Joey is trying to explain in a nice way that Janice's personality is a bit overwhelming for him to deal with. Ex: It's a lot to take in (overwhelming). I need to sit down and think about what you just told me. Ex: I can't keep up in school. It's too much information for me to take in.
