Tables are turned

Tackle an issue

Take a back seat

Take a hike

Take a leaf out of someone’s book

Take a nosedive

Take a punch

Take a raincheck

Take a shine to

Take a straw poll

Take aback

Take by storm

Take by the scruff of the neck

Take for a test drive

Take for granted

Take forty winks

Take guts

Take it in your stride

Take it on the chin

Take it up a notch

Take no prisoners

Take one for the team

Take root

Take sand to the beach

Take someone down a peg

Take someone for a ride

Take someone to task

Take someone to the cleaners

Take someone to the woodshed

Take someone under your wing,

Take stock

Take the biscuit

Take the bull by its horns

Take the cake

Take the chair

Take the edge off

Take the fall

Take the fifth

Take the flak

Take the floor

Take the heat

Take the Mickey

Take the plunge

Take the rough with the smooth

Take to your heels

Take up the reins

Take up the torch

Take your breath away

Take your eye off the ball

Take your hat off

Take your medicine

Taken as read

Tale of the tape

Talk a blue streak

Talk a glass eye to sleep

Talk a mile a minute

Talk is cheap

Talk nineteen to the dozen

Talk of the town

Talk out of the back of your head

Talk out of your hat

Talk shop

Talk the hind legs off a donkey

Talk the legs off an iron pot

Talk turkey

Talk your arm off

Talking to a brick wall

Tall drink of water

Tall enough to hunt geese with a rake

Tall order

Tall story

Tally ho!

Tar baby

Tar with the same brush

Taste blood

Taste of your own medicine

Teach your grandmother to suck eggs

Teacher’s pet

Tear your hair out

Tears before bedtime

Teeny-weeny

Teething problems

Tell it to the marines

Tell them where the dog died,

Tempest in a teapot

Tempt fate

Tempt providence

Ten a penny

Test the waters

That and 50 cents will buy you a cup of coffee

That dog won’t hunt

That is the way the cookie crumbles

That makes two of us

That ship has sailed

That’s a given

That’s all she wrote

The apple does not fall far from the tree

The ayes have it

The ball’s in your court

The be all and end all

The bigger they are, the harder they fall

The cat’s meow

The common weal

The grass is always greener

The line forms on the right

The long and short

The more the merrier

The Mountie always gets his man

The penny dropped

The plot thickens

The sands of time

The shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot

The short straw

The sun might rise in the west

The whole shooting match

The world and his wife

Their bark is worse than their bite

There are many ways to skin a cat

There but for the grace of God go I

There goes the neighbourhood

There’s a dead cat on the line

There’s never a road without a turning

There’s no “I” in “Team”

There’s no accounting for taste

There’s no fool like an old fool

There’s no such thing as a free lunch

There’s the rub

Thick and fast

Thick as mince

Thick as thieves

Thick-skinned

Thin as a rake

Thin blue line

Thin end of the wedge

Thin line

Thin-skinned

Think outside the box

Think the world of

Third degree

Third rail

Third time lucky

Third time’s the charm

Thorn in your side

Those who live by the sword die by the sword

Thousand pound gorilla in the room

Three sheets in the wind

Thrilled to bits

Through gritted teeth

Through the ceiling

Through the floor

Through thick and thin

Throw a curve

Throw a monkey wrench into the works

Throw a sickie

Throw a spanner in the works

Throw caution to the wind

Throw down the gauntlet

Throw in the towel

Throw pearls to the pigs

Throw someone a bone

Throw someone a line

Throw someone in at the deep end

Throw someone to the wolves

Throw someone under the bus

Throw the baby out with the bath water

Throw the book at someone

Throw your hat in the ring

Throw your toys out of the pram

Throw your weight around

Thumb your nose at

Thumbs down & thumbs up

Tick all the right boxes

Tickle your fancy

Tickled pink

Tidy desk, tidy mind

Tie the knot

Tied to your mother’s apron strings

Tight rein

Tight ship

Tighten your belt

Till the cows come home

Till the pips squeak

Till you’re blue in the face

Tilt at windmills

Time and again

Time and tide wait for no man

Time does sail

Time flies

Time is on my side

Time of your life

Time out of mind

Time-honoured practice

Tip of the iceberg

Tipping point

Tired and emotional

Tit for tat

To a fault

To a man

To a T

To all intents and purposes

To be as thick as two bricks

To be dog cheap

To err is human, to forgive divine

To have the courage of your convictions

To little avail

To the end of time

Toe the line

Tomorrow’s another day

Tongue in cheek

Tongue-lashing

Tongue-tied

Too big for your boots

Too big for your britches

Too clever by half

Too many chiefs and not enough Indians

Too many cooks spoil the broth

Too many irons in the fire

Toot your own horn

Top brass

Top dog

Top notch

Toss-up

Touch and go

Touch base

Touch wood

Tough as old boots

Tough cookie

Tough luck

Tough nut to crack

Tough row to hoe

Trade barbs

Traffucked

Trail your coat

Train of thought

Tread on someone’s toes

Tread the boards

Tread water

Treasure trove

Trick of the trade

Tried and tested

True blue

True colours

Trump card

Truth will out

Tug at the heartstrings

Turf war

Turn a blind eye

Turn a deaf ear

Turn a new leaf

Turn someone’s crank

Turn something on its head

Turn the corner

Turn the crack

Turn the other cheek

Turn the tables

Turn turtle

Turn up like a bad penny

Turn up one’s toes to the daisies

Turn water into wine

Turn your nose up

Turn-up for the books

Twenty-four seven

Twilight zone

Twinkling of an eye

Twist someone’s arm

Twisting in the wind

Two cents

Two heads are better than one

Two left feet

Two peas in a pod

Two sides of the same coin

Two-edged sword

Two-faced
