"Bombed" traditionally means drunk, or possibly under the influence of other drugs. But these days people use it synonymously with "failed" particularly with regard to lack of sales, particularly in the music industry.

"Here's looking at you" was that a phrase from Casablanca?

"Bum's rush" I've never heard that before, but it's in the Collins English dictionary as "1. forcible ejection, as from a gathering. 2. rapid dismissal, as of an idea."
