Expressional phrases are teasers whereby the answer is a common phrase which you can derive from a statement or combination of statements given. The solution may derive from using synonyms or playing with sounds (and possibly homonyms) from the stated expression.

Eg "I'm taking that girl Andrea Walk out tonight to that 'tricky part' of town"

would solve to

"Take a walk on the wild side" - or broken down further: "Take A(ndrea) Walk on the wild (wiled - Trickery; cunning) side (of town)."

Therefore what would the following solve to:

"Our male competitor's name is Sin, you better check him out"
