Cuéntame 4 - Paz, amor y fantasia

My teacher gave me some words to find the meaning from the series "Cuéntame como paso", and I still have some words without clue... Could you please help me?

1. No tener una perra gorda
2. Trillizos
3. Salirle rana
4. Ser una fresca
5. Tener los nervios de punta
6. Sacar la cabeza
7. A las chicas las puedes mirarlas, pero sólo cuando hayan pasado
8. Cuerpazo

I don't know the context where these appeared... She just gave me the paper to find the meanings. The subtitled version will be given only on Tuesday.
