flush the plan


Senior Member
In an American film - Family Man, a woman asked her boyfriend not to the US. Her boyfriend would like to did according to their plan, but the woman said, 'Let's flush the plan.'

I think flush the plan refers to give up the plan. I searched the usage of flush via Google and dictionary, but it seems the allocation of "flush" and "plan" is not usual. Am I right?

    You're correct. Let's flush the plan means to forget about the plan as in let's forget about going through with our original plan.

    I think flush kind of refers to flushing something down the toilet. If you flush something you just completely get rid of it. So yes in this instance, flush the plan means to forget the plan, throw it out.
