    pick up the tab (to pay for something, esp. for what someone else has bought or used) = πληρώνω τη λυπητερή / το τίμημα / το λογαριασμό, καλοπληρώνω

    The company will pick up the tab for this trip.
    (Cambridge Dictionary)
    My father picked up the tab for my schoolbooks while I was studying at University.

    it's not a hanging offence = δεν θα σε κρεμάσουμε κιόλας, δεν διέπραξες δα και κανένα έγκλημα

    https://www.collinsdictionary.com/di...anging-offence

    Κυριολεκτικά: έγκλημα που επισύρει την θανατική ποινή δι' απαγχονισμού. Μεταφορικά: αν χρησιμοποιείται σε άρνηση, ισοδυναμεί με την ελληνική έκφραση "Δεν θα σε κρεμάσουμε κιόλας", εκτός άρνησης θανάσιμο αμάρτημα, επιλήψιμη, κατακριτέα, αξιοκαταφρόνητη συμπεριφορά/πράξη κλπ.

    the life (and soul) of the party = η ψυχή της παρέας

    He's a very sweet man but he's not exactly the life and soul of the party.
    Give him a few drinks and he's the life of the party!
