all present and correct

Definition of all present and correct in English:

Used to indicate that not a single thing or person is missing.
Example sentences
  • His trademark strutting, pouting, leaping, punching and perspiring were all present and correct and he skipped his way around the stage like he was genuinely enjoying the evening.
  • The sentences are fine - subject, object, verb: all present and correct - but, when strung together, their meaning grows elusive.
  • Yep, they're there now, all present and correct.
