No.I know that one and I teach it to my students,because swearwords are essential to understand modern films, young people...
I'm not sure about this because I don't remember the exact sentence, but I was thinking myself it might be selfish b****.

It was the show with the jocks, Rusty.One Tree Hill,actually. And, incidentally ,if you notice I sound particularly sad, it's because my daughter and I have finished the third season already....Boo hoo hoo !
But not to worry, we've already started on Weeds...

Crotalito, SOB stands for son of a bitch ( ). We are still discussing SB.

María,

Without knowing the context, the SB abbreviation could be a lot of things. I found lots of meanings (over 200) on the Internet sites that list abbreviations/acronyms. 'So Beautiful' is a popular chat abbreviation, and there are other possibilities. Add to your guess 'Stupid B', or 'Silly B'.

Although we know SOB means and SB remains a mystery. Now, I have a question about HP.
Besides the initials for Hewlitt Packard, among Puerto Ricans HP means SOB (and I don't mean shortness of breath). Does HP mean that in other countries in Latin America a Spain?

I just asked my husband and he says he has heard it on occasion (euphemistically, to try to avoid using the actual words). But my husband never swears and pretends to ignore the meaning of most swearwords uttered by others when he's around, so he might be biased.

The context was a couple of beautiful teenagers at each other's thoats having a 'meaningful conversational exchange'. So I guess we should go with your last two options in this case.
