You know, I'm just gonna take off and break up with her over the phone.

You can't do that. Oh, come on, Mike, strap on a pair.

It means "find some courage".

Mike is being told to "act like a man." The pair being referred to is, well, you can guess the meaning from here. Not sure if I'm allowed to go into detail on the forum.
