bottom line, the


Explanation: What is an idiom?

The important result of an action.

Context:

"What are you doing this weekend George?"

"Going to see my mother-in-law."

"Ouch."

"Yeah. "

"Can't you get out of it?"

"No chance. Remember last Saturday, when we both had too much to drink?"

"I try not to."

"Well, the next day I was supposed to be building the patio like I'd promised. Well, I woke up at about 11.00, got out of bed, had a cup of tea and then had to go back to bed again. I didn't feel okay until 5.00. "

"No patio I suppose."

"No."

"I bet Beryl was pleased. "

"She said: 'if you can't handle your drinking and keep your promises, you won't be allowed to the pub.'"

"Heavy."

"You bet. So, the bottom line is, I have to go to the mother-in-laws, like I promised."

"You poor sod. Let me buy you a drink..."

Notes:

In accounting, everything that is bought and sold has to be calculated, and the total amount entered under a thick line at the bottom of the page. That is the bottom line, which is of course, the most important thing that you look at when you are reading your accounts, because it is the end result.
