Zip, zap (or "zip-zap")


A man's ghost, more experienced than just recently died Sam, tells him:
- Come here, I'll tell you a secret. Doors ain't as bad as you think. Zip, zap, they ain't nothing at all. You'll see. You'll catch on.
Ghost, movie

What is zip zap? I guess it's something about going through walls, doors etc. But what does this expression mean?

    They don't really mean anything, except perhaps "easy". It is an onomatopoeic word being applied here to the imagined "sound" of going through a door. Zip and zap are two alternatives for the same thing.
