Dear Users,

Could you please tell me what is said in this video at 4:36? I can't hear clearly what is said after: and put him back on the straight... Sounds like an idiom to me.



You did not link to the video, but I can guess it's "on the strait and narrow". This is almost invariably spelled and construed "straight and narrow". It is an expression that derives from the King James Bible, Matthew 7:14, "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." To put someone back on the straight and narrow is to make them start behaving honorably and honestly again.
