“One move, lights out. I’ll do you cold.”
It’s a dialogue between a criminal and a victim. (from TV series)
I do understand ‘one move, lights out’
It means ‘if you move, I will kill you’, right?
But what does ‘I’ll do you cold.’ mean?
I can’t find it on dictionary or Google.
(I’m not an American. Please talk to me nicely. :-(()
Entry 4b here…refers to “giving the appearance of being dead: unconscious”
And “do” has a sense of “to treat or make,” usually heard in the phrase “do me wrong,” meaning to treat me badly. Look at sense 11 here.
