Episode description

The expression for this episode is: to make a long story short. To make a long story short. I use this one a lot whenever I want to summarize something that would take too long to explain in full detail. Usually, this is used when there is a time limit on the discussion. So let’s jump right into our first situation here to help this one make sense.

Example sentences

  1. To make a long story short, the reason I’m late is there was a traffic accident on the highway.
  2. You’re probably wondering why I’m not at work. Well, long story short, I quit.
  3. To make a long story short, Jessica didn’t get home until 4AM!
  4. I know you have to go soon, so anyway long story short, the repair shop said my computer can’t be fixed and I’ll have to buy a new one.
  5. To make a long story short, they decided not to sell their house and are just going to keep living in Seattle.
