Have you ever used this form of question on others? I think it means to ask a favor, but can someone also ask, "Can you do me a liquid?" What would that mean? Please inform an ignorant mylotter, me.

I heard this on seinfeld and thats the only time ive ever heard it before lol. When Kramer asked George if he could do him a solid then George said he coudnt but always wanted to do a Solid. But I also think it just means doing a favor for someone what else would it mean.

Thank you arcidy, I was hoping that this was the only meaning. I heard someone using that expression on the radio, and wasn't completely sure of their meaning as I caught into the middle of the conversation. I'll have to look for that Seinfeld episode, it sounds funny. I appreciate your comment.
