Amigo: ¡Hola, tronco!
Thanks, Malila! I would definitely have understood that joke given the "companion" definition given earlier.

Yes, it was because of Jane's comment

But ... I mean ... the entire joke. I would have understood ALL of the Spanish in that joke, which never really happens to me yet. I'm kind of impressed.

- Oh! Don't worry, I won't tell him anything!
(he enters in the bedroom)

I always manage to miss all the actions around here....
But then, they say that he who laughs last, laughs best.. it doesn´t exactly apply here, but I´m laughing.

What does "to miss all the actions" mean here?

I think it should be action, not actions, and (possibly) comes from watching films. 'Action' in this sense is when anything interesting has happened, and you turn up at the wrong time and miss it. For example, you turn up late at a party when there has been a fight or a police raid earlier, but all is quiet when you get there afterwards. You say you have missed all the action.
