Episode 331: Pull Out All the Stops
When people are asking for your greatest effort, they might say “pull out all the stops.” If you pull out all the stops on a pipe organ it enables all of the pipes to sound when their note is pressed on the keyboard. There was a cute cartoon on the office door of a friend of mine with a small child asking the church organist to make the sound of a 747 again. That would probably be pretty close to having pulled out all the stops.
