    viper/fiddlesticks/there is no question

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    "A viper--a fiddlestick," said Miss Sharp to the old lady, almost fainting with astonishment

    In my humble opinion it has to be: "A viper - fiddlesticks."......

    a viper - fiddlesticks = Snake! Rubbish!/Nonsense!

    There is no question of gratitude between us.

    there is no question = out of question = not worth considering

    Thanks for your efforts.
