* Literally, "C'est la fin des haricots" means "That's the end of the beans." It's an expression in French which is equivalent to the English expressions, "That takes the cake," or "That's the last straw," or "That's the limit."
** Literally, the word "crever" means burst, but it can also mean a slang word for "die", similar to how in English the word "croak" can be slang meaning to die.
