Fig. safe; unbothered by difficulties; unscathed. (As ifsomeone or something were safe from a flood. See alsoleave someone high and dry.) While the riot was going ondown on the streets, I was high and dry in my apartment.Liz came out of the argument high and dry.
Not necessarily. It means that Liz wasn't hurt by the argument. She may have offered a terrible argument which was refuted by logical reasoning which she and any listeners ignored.
