Mensagem:  Limelight: notoriedade, publicidade We have to keep our case in the limelight by talking frequently with the newspaper reporters; if people don't know what we say and do then they'll think we are guilty. schmooze: falar com alguem numa maneira procuranda amizade The young lawyer schmoozed with the judge in the hopes that he would have a favorable decision in the trial. second banana: alguem ajudando voce....assistente que sempre concorda, diz sim, não pensa por ele/ela mesmo/mesma, etc alguem que não ajuda no processo The director went to the bathroom and John, the second banana, got up to the podium and continued the lecture of company propaganda. I'd rather be poor than play second banana to anyone. Hope this helps, Tom
