    1. way upstairs - sometimes we say 'way' to mean a far distance. The ocean is way over there. His sense of direction is way off. We are way far away from you. So when they say why are you yelling at us when we are way upstairs, it means 'when we are so far away from you."

    I don't understand question 2 or 4, but for 3, yes mono is short for mononucleosis.
