This common English Aphorism is an Idiomatic & Metaphorical Expression which is used to say that: every situation which may be perceived as “bad” or un-pleasant (like rain-clouds in the sky), usually has some sort of hidden beneficial or advantageous aspect to it — even though it may not been seen or experienced presently.
This phrase is usually used to describe a situation which is happening or has already happened — or as a reminder to someone who is experiencing — or is about to experience — an un-pleasant situation. This expression is given so that the person can perceive the circumstances with a more optimistic attitude
The “Cloud” (the un-pleasant reality) in this situation is that the guy who said that his “…grandmother is sick…”, owes $20 to the main character in the video-clip (the young guy).
The Main Character Doesn’t Like This… He Wants His Money!
However — the “mob-boss” character (the older gentleman in the blue suit) asks him if the guy is a friend. The main character says…
(translation: “No, I don’t even like him.”)
And so the older gentleman explains that — perhaps, the main character should not be so upset about the situation. And instead, think of his situation in a slightly different way:
So even though the actual phrase — “Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining” — was not even used in the video clip, it is a good demonstration and example of the usage and the meaning of this phrase.
Have An Excellent Day!
(And Gimme Back My Money!!!)
