In the TV series Prison Break (season 1 episode 5), two cellmates are talking together. One of them is mad at the other one putting him under too much stress and tells him: ''This ain't gonna fly, man. The Ricans, we got genetically higher blood pressure, you know that? My cousin, he died from too much stress.''

What does he mean by saying ''this ain't gonna fly''?
