shebang, the

noun

Everything; the WHOLE SHEBANG: You can have the shebang

[1869+; fr shebang, ''shanty, hut,'' found by 1862, of obscure origin; perhaps fr an approximate pronunciation of French char-a-banc, ''buslike wagon with many seats,'' in which case the semantics of the whole shebang would depend upon the hiring of the whole vehicle rather than one or two seats]
