When the going gets tough ...

Today's expression is about resilience, i.e. the ability to stay strong and not give up in the face of difficulty, and it goes:

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

There's a similar expression that I'd like you to find. Your clue: The two key words (red) have to do with money, and the other two words (blue) are the same preposition:

In .............................., in ..............................


ANSWER: In for a penny, in for a pound. (GB)
                  In for a dime, in for a dollar. (US)

Hello all,

You caught me off guard this time, Serg!

It seems there is also an Americanized version of it: ""In for a dime, in for a dollar."

 While searching for the answer, I came across this saying that  I cannot resist quoting: "Money is the best deodorant."  :D
