Expressional phrases are teasers whereby the answer is a common phrase which you can derive from a statement or combination of statements given.

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:

"Yes Ed, it is for Grant"


Answer

Take it for granted

The person is speaking to 'Ed' and is saying that with the thing that he has, he is going to 'Take it for Grant - Ed'
