In a lot of movies,they said that:'I rest my case." And in "blue"'s song<All rise>,they also sing:"I rest my case."

So, what's it meaning??---------

I rest my case.

Hi,

It's a traditional phrase that is supposedly said by lawyers when they have finished presenting their arguments to the court.

In everyday English, it means 'I have said all that I want to say, I have finished, I have no more to say, I think I have said enough to prove that I am right.'

Best wishes, Clive

hi, thanks Clive for clarification...

but, they saying sometimes : They rest my case, does it mean also they catch me,i can't say more to prove my talking?
I've never heard 'they rest my case'. Are you sure you've heard this? It could be 'there rests my case', which means much the same thing as 'I rest my case'.

Remember that we use a capital letter when we write the pronoun I.
