Idioms in movies: Put all your eggs in one basket

“Put all your eggs in one basket” means “to put all your efforts or all your resources into one plan or one course of action”.

Usage in a movie (“Forget Me Not”):
– Yes, but there is another place you might like even better.
– I’m happy here!
– Please, Nan. Try. And remember, you always said to me not to put all my eggs in one basket.
– How absurd! I said nothing of the sort! What does that even mean?
