    Default Looking for a phrase that means ...

    Hello I heard a phrase last time on a movie that I am trying to remember. The phrase means lets do this only for this time and it was like:

    Let's do this just/only for once.
    Let's do this just/only once.


    Which one do you think is correct?

    Best Regards

    You will hear anything in a movie but don't use "for" as in the sentence you presented.
