    "dot the i's..." ist vielleicht keine 100%ige Entsprechung, passt aber mit ein wenig Freiheit (kein Objekt hier) doch ganz gut.

    Im Englischen aber bitte auf jeden Fall ohne Komma hinter 'everything', und ich kenne es auch mit 'that' (wie in den Beispielen), nicht mit 'which'. Sonst passt es, denke ich.

    Ich habe 'etwas niet- und nagelfest machen' allerdings noch nie gehört und kann zu der Entsprechung nichts sagen.

    I should have known Gibson would read my mind -- one more vote for 'that' and no comma. (-:

    Could we make it shorter by just putting something like

    (not) nailed down - (nicht) niet- und nagelfest

    ?

    Aehmm... wie kommentiere ich die Tatsache, dass ich nach "everything that" gesucht habe und dann "everything which" vorschlug. :(

    Natuerlich mit "that" und ohne Komma.

    Could we make it shorter by just putting something like (not) nailed down - (nicht) niet- und nagelfest

    Dann wuerde aber die schoene Entsprechung zwischen den beiden Redewendungen wegfallen. Und "niet- und nagelfest" wird ausserhalb dieser beiden kaum gebraucht.
