Hello marygee!
When the shop keeper asked 'Is that everything?', he's asking if the customer would like anything else.

Hello elr786! I'm happy you liked the video. 'one' or 'ones' can be used as a pronoun to avoid repeating a noun that you have already mentioned. In this case 'ones' refers to 'bottles of water'. In different contexts it can represent a different thing.

I don't have a pen. Have you got one? (= a pen)
I'd like to join a gym. Do you know if there is one (= a gym) in this area?
We need to buy bananas. Those ones (=bananas) look perfect.

Hope that helps! Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)
