How to use play off in a sentence?

  1. Jason Alexander:

    The actress (Heidi Swedberg) is this wonderful girl, and … I love her! i couldn’t figure out how to play off of her. Her instincts for doing a scene — where the comedy was — and mine were always misfiring.

  2. Jeff Eastin:

    Peter’s specialty is usually sort of the puzzle solving, the putting the pieces together that an FBI agent would be good at. And Neal, I always look at Neal as somebody who can sort of look at the problem from outside the box and approach it in a way that most people wouldn’t think to. Mozzie adds his own expertise, which usually that sort of that street level guy who knows the way that criminals do it. And Elizabeth has a certain amount of emotional intelligence that we try to play off of. She’s going to see things from a human perspective that a lot of times Peter won’t see or Neal won’t see.

  3. Danny Willett:

    Words can't describe it, you hope that when you win you have a bit of breathing space coming to the last. I've only won one before and it was a five-hole play-off so it was a bit more nerve-wracking, we stuck to our game-plan, we said we were going to go aggressive and see if we could shoot another low score and put it out of reach for the other players. Luckily we did and it was a really good win.
