Idioms and Phrases with talk sense

talk sense

Speak rationally and coherently, as in Ranting and raving won't help; it's time we talked sense, or I wish you'd talk some sense into that son of yours. Shakespeare used this idiom in slightly different form in The Merry Wives of Windsor (2:1): “Believe it, Page, he speaks sense.”
